Simple and efficient! - Kero is an excellent driver. He was prompt, polite and professional. We made it to Abu Simbel and back in very good time (it's a long drive). He got us snacks and water too. Importantly for us, we didn't divert to any stores to buy souvenirs which was a pleasant change from other tours we've done throughout Eygpt. Michael the organiser has excellent communication and even sorted our airport transfer for early the next morning. Cheers!

Hany our fantastic driver - Our driver Hany was fantastic - a really lovely guy who provided us with lots of explanations about the landscape we were passing through during our 3.5 drive from Aswan to Abu Simbel. He provided us with bottled water for our trip. He arranged a stop for lunch and ordered for us in advance, so it was ready and we did not have to wait. He is a really lovely guy and we loved travelling with him. He brought us to our guide for Abu Simbel and he collected us after our visit. We would highly recommend him.

Hani, the best driver for Abu Simbel - I highly recommend my driver, Hani. He was the best driver and person in Egypt. We have requested to meet him at 8:00 in the cruise for Abu Simbel tour. He tried to make sure that we are comfortable and happy on the long way to Abu Simbel temple. The way was comfortable. Abu simbel was so beautiful not only the temple but also the lake with the view.. Also, Hani recommended one fish restaurant. This is a mist-visit restaurant!!! So delicious!!! I am so happy that I could meet this guy, Hani.

Not to miss trip to Abu Simbel - Fantastic trip to Abu Simbel. Our driver Hany was very kind and did a wonderful job getting us to the temple and back. The vehicle was super comfortable and Hany would point out anything of interest along the way. The temple of Ramses II was so worth the long drive. We got many great photos. It was truly magnificent.

Ramses the Builder meets Markos the Excellent - Our tour guide, Markos, was excellent. My husband and I had booked this trip last minute after realizing the difficulty of trying to travel on our own. We actually met Markos the day before when he took us on a tour of Aswan proper. He suggested this tour to us and we readily agreed, as he is incredibly knowledgeable and thoughtful. The trip by car is long, but Markos made sure we were comfortable. When we arrived he gave us a thorough historical overview of both of the temples for Ramses II and Nefertari. He also taught us how to read their cartouches, how to identify the different gods and goddesses, and told us where we could find the best preserved images. He really was a wealth of information about the archaeology of the site, but also of the modern period- especially the removal and rebuilding of these landmarks above the waterline. We loved our time on this tour and highly recommend it. No pressure to buy or random stops at tourist junk shops!

Happy we choosed Viator Abu Simbel tour - We are very happy that we choosed Viator Abu Simbel tour from Aswan. Easy and smooth communication with Viator, pick-up in the reception of our Nile boat, great driver Hany who provided insights during our car trip through the desert and provided us with snacks and coffe-bathroom stop during the way. Guides are not allowed inside the two temples but the guide showed us photos outside so we knew exactly what to spot on the inside. In all we are very content with the Viator Abu Simbel tour and our driver Hany.
