My friend and I greatly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Sameh, was very knowledgeable. Sameh would take us through the sight explaining different parts of the structure then give us time to explore and look ourselves. There was always more time for things we took an extra interest so we didn't feel rushed. Sameh is a native to Southern Egypt and his knowledge of what felt like everything around us was impressive. We our 2 females traveling solo in Egypt and felt safe and comfortable with this company, no hustle or pressure. If you are looking to tour this area, I would recommend this one. It's private, it will be your party members, guide, and driver. There was much more freedom at the sights as we were not part of a large tour bus being herded like sheep. Sameh also chooses excellent places for lunch, fresh, Egyptian style and authentic. We can't thank him for the experience.
We enjoyed this 5 days 4 nights Cruise from Luxor to Aswan. You can taste the Egyptian culture along the river cruise! Ramzy is a nice guide, he treated us drinks along our journey. Always cheerful and explain history of Egypt on spot of historical sites. An extra favour he helped, finding us an adapter for charging our phones! Really appreciate that! Tickets for the attractions are not included, the price of ticket is cheap, and tipping is required for some transportation. The basic ticket of the Valley of the Kings can visit 3 tombs, you can buy extra tickets for special ones. We know that when we exit, so check it out if you want to know more.
Our guide Ahmed Abass was wonderful. His knowledge of the ancient Egyptians is exceptional. He was friendly and accommodating, slowing the pace of the tour to suit our needs. He was full of helpful hints and cannot be recommended enough. The cruise was good. Apart from a few minor niggles like a poor aircon and the odd smell of diesel when the boat is still it is a good experience. It does need more sail time as your are sat in Aswan and Luxor for a full day and a half each. The food was good, combining Egyptian and western well. The transport to the sights are all in modern cars.
You can't understand Egypt if u don't book this experience. Our vacation would have been half without that. The service in the boat was really good and 100% above average of Egypt but it could have been better though. The buffet could be bigger. Especially the desserts were not that good. Egyptologist and transfer were perfect.
