Description

A day of adventure is waiting for you on this tailor-made tour with an Egyptologist guide. An early start is well worth it as you see the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Abu Simbel. Explore the mighty twin temples of Ramses II, considered among the most inspiring temples in ancient Egypt.

Get an early start for your morning-long excursion to Abu Simbel. Enjoy breakfast on your way to the temples' home on the shore of Lake Nasser.

Carved out of the mountainside, Abu Simbel is one of few ancient Egyptian sites to have largely escaped damage from past invaders. Your private guide brings the history of the site back to life, telling you the story of Pharaoh Ramses II's alleged victory in the Battle of Kadash.

Marvel at the impressive twin temples in the complex, a part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the Nubian Monuments. Pause for a postcard photo at the temples' façade, featuring 4 standing statues of Ramses II, and follow your guide into the temple's interior to discover how astonishingly well-preserved the structures are.

This tour is a total RIPOFF, tour guide spent less than 10 min with us and we did not get breakfast as it specified. Got picked up at 430am, arrived at Abu Simbel to meet our guide. Met our guide for 5 min who escorted us to the entrance, was told for us to visit Ramsey II Temple first by ourselves and he will meet us outside the temple after 40 min so he can give history of the place. Met him again for less than 5 min giving us information about the 1st temple, he then directed us to visit Nefertari Temple by ourselves again and to meet him again at the exit. We noticed that he also was attending to another group. After our visit to the 2nd temple, we got back to the exit, he was no where to be found. My son was with us for him to learn the history but the guide was not informative and only spent a short time (less then 10 minutes) with us.

I did not receive what I was promised even though I paid top price for the tour. I was told that I will enjoy a breakfast during the tour. the driver, nor the tour guide had any knowledge of the breakfast part. However, both the driver and the tour guide made excellent efforts to please me. Yet, there appeared to be a communication shortage between the people involved to furnish the tour

The driver was excellent, but the tour operator was very rude and unpolite with me. They also offered breakfast included, and not only did not offered it, but I had to invite the driver for kunch because the tour operator did not gave him his allowance for that. Very bad experience. The tour operator agent even warned me to not write my bad experience with him.
