Discover Abu Simbel with a 4-hour private tour and flight from Aswan to spectacular temples, desert scenery and millennia-old monuments set into soaring cliffs. Explore with an Egyptologist guide, stand beneath the colossi that guard the Great Temple and spot carved baboons high on the rock face. Learn the stories behind Abu Simbel’s detailed bas-reliefs and hieroglyphs, take in the unusual dedications to Queen Nefertari then slip inside her own exquisite temple.
We flew to Abu SImbel with our guide. The history of the temple, the relocation of it in the 1960s to make way for Lake Nassar and the High Dam at Aswan, made the experience even more awesome. Highly recommend Fouad from South Sanai Tours local agent for Viator. We have had other guides in Egypt and they pale in comparison to his knowledge and expertise.
The Viator representative in Aswan, Amir, was extremely helpful in helping arrange the tour. He picked us up from hotel, took to Airport, picked up upon return and took to boat. Excellent service!
This is a must see. The only drawback is you spend the extra money to shorten the day by flying instead of travelling by road but spend some 3 hrs at both airports.
I had an exceptional experience with my tour through Viator, especially being a woman traveling alone to Egypt. A representative (Hedra) picked me up from my ship in Aswan, got my boarding pass for me at the airport, and sent me off. There were 2 more representatives who helped me during my tour at Abu Simbel which was awesome. There were barely any other tourists there so I felt I had the place to myself (good for me, not good for Egypt). Hedra was waiting for me back at the airport in Aswan and took me to my hotel (and waited while all my accommodations were arranged). Everyone was extremely kind and made the trip easy and enjoyable for me.
The service provided by South Sinai Travel was excellent.
Viator was fabulous! Very professional. Picked us up at airport, dressed in suits with ties, transported in very nice, clean car to Abu Simbel. After our tour with local guide, our Viator guide was there waiting for us to take us back to the airport. Helped check us in at airport. He spoke excellent English and was genuinely concerned about our happiness. Highly recommend Viator.
