Aswan Philae Temple, Unfinished Obelisk, and High Dam Private Half-Day Tour
A very nice tour and a must do in Aswan. Our guide Habi Abdo was very knowledgeable and explained everything in detail. All three places included in the tour are absolutely marvellous and should never be missed. Both the tour and the guide are highly recommended.

Philae Temple-unfinished Obelisk And High Dam Day Tour In Aswan
Definitely not worth it to include the obelisk! Would recommend adding the prices of the sites so that people can bring the appropriate cash with them since they do not take card at really any of the sites. Philae was stunning and Michael was the best tour guide!

Aswan: Guided Tour to High Dam, The Obelisk & Philae Temple by Motorboat
Very well organized. Karim was super friendly and knowledgeable with very good German. He managed to bring history to life, especially in Philae Temple. One of the best guides we had in Egypt. Would absolutely do a tour with him again. We asked to be dropped off at the bazaar at the end instead of the hotel (which was much further) but this was no problem at all.

Aswan Philae Temple, Unfinished Obelisk, and High Dam Private Half-Day Tour
It was nice. Tour guide speaks very good English. unfinished obelisk is really worth visiting, it's amazing the technique they were using to create obelisk 4000 years ago, so smart people.

Philae Temple and High-Dam Half-day tour in Aswan
Very professional and friendly team. I was met in the morning by Mohammed who bought water and snacks for me. He introduced me to my guide and also helped at the end of the trip get my bags organized for my transfer to Luxor. My guide was Sharif - excellent English and very knowledgeable - I learned a lot about the history of Egypt, the dam and the temple. Perfect balance of time explaining and individual time to walk around and take photos. Make sure you take plenty of cash - as stated you are responsible for entry fees and boat - total was 480 EGP.

Aswan Philae Temple, Unfinished Obelisk, and High Dam Private Half-Day Tour
The Philae temple is on an island so we enjoyed a short boat ride to get there. The views along the way were picture perfect. Go early and miss the crowds.
