Abu Simbel is absolutely amazing. The ride was approximately a 3.5 hour drive from my hotel on Elephantine Island and my guide, Rami and my operator, Fath were waiting for me promptly at 4:30 AM. During the drive, Rami gave me a mini-tour providing details of different buildings and areas we had to pass through en route to Abu. Once there, Rami also shared his extensive knowledge of his favorite site. Both Rami and Fath were professional, extremely personable, kind gentlemen. I highly recommend this tour.
Our guide and driver picked us up at the hotel at 4am you may get a later time in the cooler months, but getting to the temple early in the summer will keep you from the afternoon heat. it is about a 3hour drive from Aswan, so be prepared to see the sun coming up over the desert spectacular. Islam our guide was great and explained the temple in great detail. The site is a marvel and you will not be disappointed. After visiting the temples we were escorted back to the hotel. As a side note and this applies to anything you do: take plenty of money for tipping, does not have to be a lot, but tips definitely help the people who work in tourism.
It was so cool to see
Waeel my tour guide was very knowledgeable and he even gave me access to his hotspot while traveling to and fro Abu Simbel. This was a private tour and Abu Simbel did not disappoint! Amazing place with a few people to compete with!

Mr/ Iliya Nour

I heard and read a lot of bad 'SCAM' experience in Egypt and during recent Europe travel viator was really satisfactory choice. But this time it was So Disappointed One to my family and friends who came to Egypt without using viator laughted us a lot.!!
I booked around 7 tours from viator but the price in logal compare with official website prices of local agencies who guided us was really shocking.. I can not understand the Commission of viator rate!! how it can be happen... Additionally, friends who booked from local hotels and agencies directly had a lot lower prices... I didn't even talk about it.
