Great alternative to flying from Aswan!

We decided against flying from Aswan to Abu Simbel and chose to hire a private car for the ride. Our driver picked us up very early with bottled water and snacks and was a very safe and gracious driver. Although it is a long drive (3.5 hours or more), I honestly enjoyed getting to see the landscape on the way south to Abu Simbel. We would have missed seeing this far southern area of Egypt in a plane, and I feel like we had an experience that few others have in these far-flung areas in the south. We did stop on the way down and back at a rest stop where they charge foreigners only for the toilet (to be expected) with expensive food, but otherwise we enjoyed a peaceful trip.

We were picked up in a new car by our guide Emad Aiad and the driver. Emad was passionate, friendly, attentive, knowledgeable and most importantly took great photos :) I definetely recommend this tour, especially if you choose to be picked up at 8 am as you will reach Abu Simbel at 11 and there would be no crowds. We literally had the temples to ourselves. :)

Excellent Day Trip from Aswan
James_R

Fantastic tour led by a super knowledgeable guide named Islam Maroud. We departed by private car from Aswan to Abu Simbel, a journey that took 3 hours. Once at the site, we visited both temples and the guide gave us information on each. The temples are both in amazing condition. We spent about 1.5 hrs walking in and around the temples before departing back to Aswan. We stopped for lunch on the way home. If highly recommend this tour with Emo Tours. This was our third tour with them in Egypt, they are well organized and always send a guide and driver together to escort you.

Amazing trip

Our tour guide Emad and driver Mohammed picked us from the hotel on time. On our three hour journey, we stopped once in a desert stopover and had a wonderful coffee. We also got a great chance to walk in the Sahara desert and take pictures. Emad was so knowledgeable and all throughout our journey he kept telling us about ancient Egyptian history and the stuff we were going to see. As it was very hot outside, he showed us the inside pictures of the temples while sitting in the air conditioned car and told us how to navigate inside the temples. This way, once we were inside the temples we knew exactly what we were seeing and the story behind it. He was with us all throughout to answer any questions we had. He also took us to a papyrus shop where they showed us how the paper was made from the plant. It was a fascinating experience and we ended up buying a beautiful piece. In the end we had a wonderful lunch in an Aswan restaurant. I would highly recommend this tour and the lovely guide Emad.

Good option of transfer

We chose the option for only driver for 2 persons, no need of guide in Abu Simbel, all information check in Wikipedia. The driver was punctual, the car was good, we arrived in 2h 30 min and stayed there around 1h30m. In the way back driver offered us some snacks and drinks. It was a long trip but totally worth it!

Abu Simbel was simply amazing, completely beautiful and I highly recommend seeing it. The tour guide was friendly and very knowledgeable, he and the driver showed up on time with a very nice, clean car. Our only complaint was the driving. The driver was going about 150 km/hour which is over 90 mph, he reached speeds over 100 mph at times. It was on a 2 lane highway and he was passing everyone so it wasn’t like he was just staying with traffic. At some points, it seemed he was racing another SUV that was going about the same speed. After about 30-40 mins of being terrified, I finally asked him to please slow down. He did, but we had to remind him 2 more times on the way. Also his passing, he did many passes that I felt were blind passes without having a clear view of oncoming traffic. He also passed on curves. While Abu Simbel is incredible, his driving definitely took away from our day.

Crash Course in Egyptology
David_J
, Jul 2021
The 3 hour drive in the desert from Aswan to Abu Simbel with Samir was a crash course in Egyptian history and Egyptology. He was so entertaining the drive seemed like it was only a few minutes, and by the end we were equipped to interpret the hieroglyphs in both the Temple of Ramses II and the Temple of Nefertiti. He gave us a hand drawn, customized map of the two temples. Samir is an amazing teacher and an entertaining guide. I highly recommend this trip!
