There is not much one can say about Abu Simbel Temples. They are so overwhelming that you search for words and find none. The company is very flexible and client-oriented, so you can get a tour tailored just for you. Michael, the guide, is knowledgeable, friendly and the only

I’m not exaggerating when I say touring with Michael was my favorite trip ever. He was able to rearrange things perfectly to accommodate some visiting dignitaries so I didn’t miss any of the sights. On top of that he is an incredibly knowledgeable guide and a great photographer

Mike is a very good guide with a rich knowledge of ancient egyptian culture. We went to the temple of isis and it was amazing! Avoiding crowd, private transportation and epic views. What else can you ask for?

You cannot beat the service of this agency. We booked the night before and got door to door service. Tiger was a great guide, as was Mona? The following day when I went to Philae. If you are on Aswan and need a trip, contact Michael. He won't let you down. Brilliant.

This tour is not to be missed. While it is roughly a three hour drive to and from Aswan each way, it is well worth the journey. We chose exactly what time we wished to depart from Aswan and our guide, Big Mac, made it happen. Big Mac and two drivers arrived 10 minutes early. Two
