Due to some misunderstanding, we expected the tour to return to Luxor and not end in Aswan. The guide was able to accommodate this change and everyone was happy. The tour guide knew a lot about these temples and the areas we visited, and he was very presentable. It was a great company. The two temples however, were not worth the hassle and were not very impressive. Not like the stories told by the guide were. I would gladly skip them both next time, unless I go to Aswan.
A fantastic trip, picked up at the hotel in Luxor and taken to the hotel in Aswan. In the Tragitto we visited two wonderful temples for history and tradition. A heartfelt thanks to Mahmoud and his extraordinary mastery of the Italian language and Egyptian history.
Great experience, also thanks to our guide Mahmud, very kind and always prepared, and to our driver who accompanied us from the hotel to these beautiful sites. To be redone without thinking twice.
