About
Enjoy your Trip to Abu Simbel. we will pick you up from your hotel in Aswan from 4 am to 4h30 am by a modern air-conditioned coach to enjoy a small group tour to Abu Simbel. The two Temples of Abu Simbel, with their unique style, are considered to be the masterpieces of ancient Egypt. They reflect the glory and grandeur of the new Kingdom. The Egyptian government and UNESCO decided to co-operate in order to save these temples from the flood. The Temple of Ramsses II was dedicated to the four universal gods Ptah, Re-Her-Akhtey, Amun-Re, and to Ramsses II himself. The great Abu Simbel temple is also called The Sun Temple of Ramssess II.The Temple of Queen Nefertari is also Called Temple of Hathor who was the wife of the Sun God so in a symbolic way, the two Temples, that of Ramsses II and that of Nefertari, bring Ramesses II, Nefertari, Hathor and the Sun God together as one. Later on, you will be escorted back from Abu Simbel to your hotel in Aswan.

    Abu Simbel Temple Complex
    Stop: 2 hours - Admission excluded
    This site south of Aswan along Lake Nasser’s shore is the most famous in all of Egypt after the Giza Pyramids. Built by the greatest of the pharaohs, Ramesses II, these huge rock-cut temples marked the southern boundary of the Egyptian Empire with Nubia at the peak of its power during the New Kingdom. They were meant to convey the power of Egypt’s rulers to anyone who laid eyes upon them.

Driver never showed up. Was told to wait outside on the street for a 4:10 pickup, ended up waiting till 5:10 in the cold and no one ever showed up. None of my messages were responded to either. I had to pay 50 pounds to get to the pickup spot too, just to freeze for an hour and never get picked up.

Actually the driver was on time waiting for you but you misunderstood the day and time of pick up because your booking was at 4 am on the 15th of January but you missed your day because you didn't understand that after midnight it's a new day You was yesterday at pick up area which is 16th of January at 4 am you supposed to be at 4 am on the 15th of January So you missed your day of booking.

Our driver was very accommodating and allowed us to make a stop at an ATM along the way. There were a total of 9 of us in the shuttle van and all were wearing their masks. My Egyptologist was amazing and provided great information. Right now is the best time to visit the sites. Typically, there are 5k people daily and we had the entire complex to ourselves.

An absolutely breathtaking experience we were fortunate enough to see the sites with no people around at all!

I would highly recommend this tour which includes the coach and travel - the entry is not included but costs an extra 255 Egyptian pounds - but definitely worth it!!

Our guide was also wonderful and very welcoming.

Be weary of the bazaars after as they can get a little overwhelming but they are well intentional people just looking to make a little money.

What can I say, we booked and got instant confirmation...Ayman the driver was on time 4.00am pick up from Aswan then took us for the long comfortable journey and we stopped half way for drinks, toilets etc and were there at 8am where we met our guide Muhammad....he welcomed us with a big smile joking so made the excursion extra special....took around 2 hours to visit and we were back on the comfortable and with ac bus....and we were back on our ship in plenty of time.....will definitely recommend and will be using them again.

It was amazing. The ride to Abu Simbel took 3 hours, it was related, the minibus had enough space in it. The tour guide was excellent. I can only recommend this tour.

It is a long day, but worth it. Unless you manage to stay in Abu Simbel, this is about as close/convenient as you can get.

Unlike all the tours you do in larger areas like Luxor, Giza, and Cairo, this is an experience you 'earn'.

So...
Long bus trip (~approx 3hrs), but with a stop half way to get fresh air and have a breather.

Once you arrive at Abu Simbel, the guide will be waiting. Given this is a 'destination' sight, the tour is relatively limited content-wise. It is a summary of the areas history (movement of monuments) and the two temples. After that, you are free to wonder around.

Tour guide remained available if you had any additional questions (which was good), but enjoyed the kind of 'explore on your own' element

After I’ve booked this trip the company informed me that there would be no guide only if I pay extra £15 but the guide was included according the description so I’ve cancelled it. It really sucks to get scammed

i am sorry i think you didn't understand well our message to you, first of all you did a sample booking request it was not confirmed it was pending because we confirm each booking request manually and not with instant confirmation because we have to check if we have enough people on the date you choose as it is a sharing bus and not private,so we sent you a message to give you the choice to confirm or to reject your request , because we didn't have enough people to provide a guide so we gave you 3 choices before we do any action we asked you if you would like to go without guide or with a private guide with extra fees or reject your request as we don't have enough people . also i think you didn't read the cancellation policy as written on the page ( This experience requires a minimum number of travelers. If it’s canceled because the minimum isn’t met, you’ll be offered a different date/experience or a full refund ) . so i am really astonished that you described our concern to let you know before we confirm as a scam !!!
