This trip was absolutely amazing and will definitely go again, the only reason I didn't out 5 stars. Is because so many extras got added onto the trip. I spent £100 that day. And that's with saying no and haggling. So amazing trip just hide your money in 4 places haha
Worth every penny! The guide was so knowledgeable and helpful. A tiring day but it wasn't just seeing the sights - temple of Carnack etc. It was the drive through Luxor which was an education and the unplanned boat trip on the NIle for 10 was brilliant. Egyptio Tours did us proud
Great tour with professional explanation and service throughout.
A very long and hot day but so worth it. We had an excellent guide and saw some fantastic sights. The pace was good and the lunch excellent. Valley of the Kings, the Nile, Karnak Temple, the Theban Necropolis, the Temple of Hatshepsut all amazing and not to be missed. Wear trainers and light clothing. Take lots of fluids with you and a pillow for the journey. Highly reccomended.
Would not recommend this tour. Absolute waste of money and time, terrible experience. Thankfully Viator refunded me my booking in full after I contacted the customer experience team.
The experience started with hotel pick-up arriving 2 hours late scheduled for 11:30, actually arrived at 1:30. After that, I was taken to the location not a Bedouin village as described, but a series of warehouses in the desert where multiple tour operators were located. The small group consisted of 15 adults and 5 children, and seemed to be a combined group of polish, russian, and english tourists. The tour guide spoke only rudimentary english and talked in polish/russian for the majority of the day.
The quad biking and beach buggy combined lasted roughly 45 minutes to 1 hour. Following this, the tour guide said we would now be heading to the Bedouin village to ride camels. The transport provided was a 4x4 van with 2 benches in the back compartment where they squeezed 8 adults and 3 children and seemed extremely unsafe. Upon arrival, it was revealed that this Bedouin Village was the site of a small abandoned outdoor adventure park in the desert, with a couple straw canopies outside. Here we proceeded to the camel ride. The tour description describes a 45 minute plod across the sands, instead, the camel ride was roughly 5 minutes and we did not leave sight of the enclosure the entire time. There were roughly 12 camels for the 20 guests, each guest was lead to a camel, got on, lead a small distance away turned around and returned to the enclosure. The tour guide then attempted to sell some herbal medicine to us before packing us all back into the vans to return back to their warehouse.
The barbecue feast described for dinner was instead a plate of soggy pasta, salad, and 2 finger sized portions of kafta kebab per customer. The show was equally disappointing and the guests were transported back to their hotels at 7pm by which point I was more than ready to go home.
I wish to complain about this trip............It was awful. I booked it as a anniversary gift for my husband. It was not a fishing trip it was a snorkelling trip...........NO FISHING. I WANT WHAT I PAID BACK.
It may seem unreasonable to critique a visit to Luxor Karnak, Nile, Hatshepsut, Valley of the Kings but it's worth a few notes. First, there's no need to book ahead as you can get the same price at your hotel. Second, if possible, get a packed breakfast from your hotel because there are no service stops! Third, the roads are appalling so seriously consider taking extra clothes to cushion the ride. Fourth, our lunch stop was not good, especially for vegetarians, so again consult your hotel first. Fifth, we got faced with a supplementary 10 charge for a boat on the Nile the alternative was a long trip round by the bridge. It was fun but should have been flagged earlier. Finally, the guide was good but only when 'on script' and evasive on questions, so get well-read beforehand. That said, the sites you visit on this trip are completely stunning - unmissable.
It was 4 am in the morning,and it was still dark outside, when we were picked up from our hotel in a private minivan with two drivers and our guide. We were going to see the famous Abu Simbel temples and the temples were nearly 300km by road from Aswan. So it would take nearly three hours to reach there.
This journey by road through the Sahara is a once in a life time experience. Watching the Sun rise on Sahara and the endless sand dunes turning golden with the first rays of the Sun was heavenly. The two rock carved temples of Ramses ll and his favourite wife Nefertari on the bank of lake Nasser impressed us. The huge columns inside the temples were engraved with colourful images of goddess Hathor, Nefertari and Ramses ll.
As it was early in the morning so the weather was pleasant. We enjoyed this trip to Abu Simbel very much and would recommend everyone to visit Abu Simbel but one must carry some food and water as the journey is long and through desert.
