My wife and I took Abu Simbel tour in March 2018. Guide agreed to meet us airport at convenient time. They also returned us to Aswan hotel after the tour. Everything went off without a problem. Guide was very knowledgeable about history and made us feel welcome. Abu Simbel temple is decent ride south of Aswan but well worth it. I would highly recommend.

We loved Abu Simbel! We did not go as early as everybody suggested, instead left Aswan at 7AM, and when we got to Abu Simbel all other tourists were gone and we had the whole temple for ourselves!! It was amazing!! The people very friendly, including our guide Hati.
