What people are saying about Aswan

This had a good combination of visiting monuments and taking a breather in the ship. First couple of days in Luxor and had a wonderful tour guide Samar.. and then we set sail covering monuments on the way to Aswan.. we were in a ship called Emilio.. one thing to call out is, not much of a difference between standard and Deluxe options except may be you are one floor higher. The ship was good and staff were friendly. Only at the restaurant they seem to be in a rush to clear out the plates.. Had Pola as the tour guide for remaining journey and he was great as well.. was very friendly.. for me Abu Simbel was the highlight. Arranged for additional places to cover in Aswan as the trip didn’t cover it. From before the trip beginning to the end.. Arwa the tour operator was staying on top of all things to make sure I’m having a good time which is worth mentioning here. All together met few really nice people on the ship and a memorable trip to cherish!

Remarkable cruise A 1st sequence with Asmaa our guide from Luxor who made us discover in particular Karnak and the Valley of the Kings - thank you Asma and congratulations for the spoken French learned in less than a year. Then relay taken by Osman, who continued and made us discover the wonders of Edfu, Kom Ombo, and an exceptional final at Abou simbel Bravo and thank you Osman Special mention to the organization of the cruise with a staff with little care (a surprise every day in our cabin with the folding of towels!) A huge thank you to the organization, Arwa in particular who allowed an express return from abou simbel (thank you drivers) to Aswan airport for us allow us to catch our plane. A huge thank you to everyone! You are a great team

On my tour of Egypt, this was the most magical experience. Although the organization was a bit messy, the tour operators were very communicative and made sure everything ran smoothly. They even went out of their way to ensure I got to my flight from Aswan. My tour guide Hassan, was knowledgeable and kind. He made sure I was comfortable which was very important as a solo female traveler. I stayed in the boat - Hapi. The staff and service was excellent. They were so friendly, kind and very attentive to all the needs of the guests. I would highly recommend this life changing experience!

We spent 4 wonderful days, both on the boat and when we made the visits accompanied by a guide who spoke French "Mehdi" at the top in his explanations and with a lot of humor. The Nile cruise is smooth and pleasant. The Emilio boat was a little run down but very well organized, with lovely staff and a very good buffet. Thanks to Arwa with whom we regularly communicated by Wathsapp for the organization of all these accompanied outings who was very responsive and very professional

Magnificent I recommend it 100x100 and always continuous contact with arwa who is always aware that everything goes well and they pick you up and take you
