Doa was a fantastic guide. Showed us around the village and took us to an amazing place to eat! Really nice relaxing afternoon out, away from the city. Highly recommend.
Nice relaxing boat ride!

Great experience. Mo was our guide. We enjoy a great boat ride to the Nubian village which was perfect for the hot day because of the breeze. During the tour we stopped at a Nubian restaurant and enjoyed great food. I do wish there was more information and history given about the Nubian people. But if you only want to see the villages and enjoy a ride in the Nile this is a great option.
Great tour with a great tour guide!

During my short day in Aswan I booked a 4 hour tour of a Nubian village through Viator. I was assigned Dowa, a local and knowledgeable tour guide who provided us with the history and many insights, she also proved to be somewhat of a professional photographer and took great photos of us! We toured houses, the markets and then we stopped off for ice cream and finished off with a sunset ride back to our hotel. Dowa was a vibrant guide and an aspiring archaeologist so we had great conversations about Egypt. had we more days I definitely would have booked more experiences with her. Thank you so much Dowa!

We had a great time with Show you Egypt! Dowa was an excellent, knowledgeable and kind guide that made our experience incredible. From the motor boat to the tour of the village, everything was relaxing, beautiful, and fun. You will not regret booking with this company!

Marwa was our best guide in Aswan. Instantly felt like we were walking around with a friend. She was very kind and knowledgeable. She helped us make sure we didn't get ripped off, we wish we had her for all our tours in Aswan! We also booked the tour same day and had no issues.
