Philae Temple has such a great location and the whole tour was very relaxing. Unfinished obelisk was awesome. But the high dam is just a dam...
Stunning, our guide Dina was wonderful. she knew what she was talking about and explained it in a way that we understood. Dina was brilliant by far the best guide we had (that is saying something as Nana in Cairo was pretty good too).
On-time pick-up. Guide treated us like we were idiots.
Good overview of the Aswan, although the High Dam is a little anticlimatic. Philae Temple caps the trip, after seeing Giza, Sakkara, Luxor, Karnak, Abydos, and Dendara. Would have liked a little more time to explore on the island. Obelisk is incredible, although our guide gave us a short introduction and then left us to wander. We enjoyed the freedom, but did have additional questions and were immediately targeted by baksheesh-hungry tourist police. Well worth it.
The guide was below average.
Our guide was excellent and we loved Philae - a peaceful oasis after Abu Simbel.
We could have passed on the High Dam, but the Philae Temple is a must-see if visiting Aswan.
As a native to Aswan our guide loved showing us around the area. The Dam is just a dam but its pretty big and the history is interesting. The mind boggles at how anyone expected to move the unfinished obelisk and Philae Temple is one of the best temples in Egypt.
High Dam not that interesting unless you are into engineering, but Philae Temple has such a great location and the whole tour was very relaxing. It's the least hassle to buy dodgy souvenirs you will get at any of the big sights in Egypt.
Guide was excellent and very knowledgeable & friendly.
It was great to see the unfinished obelisk, and the temple was awesome. But the high dam is just a dam.
