What people are saying about Abu Simbel

We left the hotel at 4.10 in the morning, at 8 we already arrived in Abu Simbel, there were other tourists in the car, the guides took everything apart and went on individual excursions. I liked everything, except for the mini bus, I am 160cm tall, even I did not have enough legroom, my knees rested on the front seat, my neck was numb. There was no lunch, but there was a stop near the "shop".

It was a very long ride to spend there least than 1 hour. Our guide had another group at the same time so he was alternating between both groups, he seemed to be in a hurry during the tour and at the end we barely were there for one hour altogether. Anyway he was nice.

The driver was on time for the pick up and we got a free upgrade to a private car because of the Covid19 situation. The guided tour in Abu Simbel was very good and the site was spectacular! Thanks a lot Mr Walid gor this amazing day!

Excellent site. You have to visit it if you come to Egypt. Hotel pick-up is on time and transportation is comfortable.

Very good guidance! However, if you are already paying for a personal guide, I find it unnecessary to ask for a tip.
