    This was a fabulous tour with Mohammed. He was friendly, knowledgeable and I felt like I was being well looked after the whole time. I was travelling on my own with not much time so this tour was an excellent option to see many of the major temples Edfu, Kom Ombo, and Philae plus go all the way to Abu Simbel. It's a long way but so worth it. The drive along the Nile in the early morning was beautiful and the drivers on both days were superb. The Aswan Dam and its history and significance to Egypt were fascinating and Mohammed was able to answer my questions without trouble. We caught the train from Aswan back to Luxor which gave us a break from driving and gave me a chance to see a little bit of local life. Pick ups, drop offs, hotel and meals all went like clockwork. I would definitely recommend this tour.
