Wonderful day trip to Abu Simbel with Ahmed

We took a day-trip to Abu Simbel from Aswan with Ahmed, and had a fantastic day!

Ahmed is a wonderful guide who is incredibly knowledgeable and academic when it comes to the subject-matter, and can easily handle the (many, many) questions that we threw his way. Despite the fact that we had already been on several other tours before we met Ahmed, we learned a lot from him and he always had some new and interesting piece of information to share with us.

The car journey from Aswan to Abu Simbel, although long at 3 hours, was very comfortable and the car was clean and modern. We also really enjoyed spending time just chatting with Ahmed in the car, both about ancient Egyptian history but also just about life in Egypt today. Ahmed is very analytical in how he sees and describes the world around him, and we learned a lot! He's also exceptionally friendly and easy to get along with!

Thank you very much indeed Ahmed, for a wonderful day trip. Next time we are back in Aswan, we'll be calling you for more! :)
Great guide & tour organisation

We had a great time! We got their contact through our friends' recommendation and were not disappointed.

Mohammad Mostafa was our main contact and he was very helpful - we decided to go on this trip super last minute but he arranged things quickly and smoothly. He was always very responsive and everything was clear, transparent and on time.

As of the day, we asked Ahmed to be our guide based on our friends' good experience, and he was indeed great - very good knowledge, very clear explanations, also very friendly and fun to talk to about lots of aspects of life and culture both ancient & modern Egypt. We were already on our 3rd guided-tour in and around Luxor/Aswan area by the time we met Ahmed, yet we still got a lot of new information from him. The car we had was very clean & new, and the drivers were nice, too. Given it was Covid-period, we were also happy that all of them were wearing masks properly on the day.

All in all, very happy to recommend!
Perfect

Jaw-dropping rock-carved temple of Ramses II should not be missed!
KarenAzinger, 19-03-2020
I worked with Luxor & Aswan travel to organize my dream trip to Egypt and they did an amazing job including a day trip to Abu Simble. It is a 3 hour drive each way through desert from Aswan down to the temple near the Sudan border. The trip is well worth the effort. Abu Simble is AMAZING!!!! This temple was rock-cut from sandstone cliffs!!! That means they chiseled the rock away to create the massive sculptures of seated and crowned Ramses II. But they did not stop with the outer facade. They chiseled rooms with vaulted ceilings and giant pillar statues holding up the painted roof. The walls are filled with beautiful etchings depicting Ramses victory at Kaddish. This is where you will see the famous carvings of the Victory chariot and the Peach chariot. And the inner sanctum has statues of the gods that are illuminated by the sun on two days of the year. Wow, just wow! Abu Simble is stunning in both size and artistry. This is a true wonder of the world! Not to be missed! Suggest you take water and snacks for in the car. There is no place to really stop along the way. If you tour Egypt, make sure to add this stunning temple to your tour.
