There was no guided tour aspect to this experience, merely transportation from hotel to dock to Philae island and return. Communications were flawed at several points: we sat in the car for a long time waiting for an escort to the ticket office then, learned that the 6pm show would not happen until later - 6:30 became 7pm. The show itself had impressive moments, but was less than expected.

Dusk had just descended when we were ferried by a motorboat to Philae temple , the temple of Goddess Isis. Our guide handed us headsets to hear the narration in English as the show was in French. Usually these shows are conducted in English, French and Spanish in different slots. We were short of time so we were accommodated in the French slot.
When the show started, the magical lights and the narration of the story of Isis mesmerised us. We walked as if in a trance through illuminated halls with huge columns and courtyards of the magnificent temple. The history seemed repeating itself in front of our eyes.
I would recommend this tour to everyone as crossing Nile at dusk and watching the temple at night is a totally different experience.
