It was a beautiful experience, Everything was just perfect. The tour guide Salma was superb in the Egyptian history, she was really knowledge and she were able to answer all my questions regarding the temples and the culture. Also the other guides in Aswan were nice too. All drivers were punctual and always arriving on time and the ship was so nice (there was a nice buffet meals on the ship).
