The two Temples of Abu Simbel, with their unique style, are considered to be the masterpieces of ancient Egypt. They reflect the glory and grandeur of the new Kingdom. The Egyptian government and UNESCO decided to co-operate in order to save these temples from the flood. The Temple of Ramses II was dedicated to the four universal gods Ptah, Re-Her-Akhtey, Amun-Re, and to Ramesses II himself. The great Abu Simbel temple is also called The Sun Temple of Ramses II.The Temple of Queen Nefertari is also Called Temple of Hathor who was the wife of the Sun God so in a symbolic way, the two Temples, that of Ramesses II and that of Nefertari, bring Ramesses II, Nefertari, Hathor and the Sun God together as one. Spend around 3 hours there then take the way back to Aswan.

Just what I was looking for - I took the driver only option. Simple process through WhatsApp to arrange, very nice driver in a comfortable air conditioned car, making a lovely day trip to Abu Simbel at a very competitive price. Would recommend!

Worth every penny - Very professional Driver arrived on time. Big spacious mini van for the five of us. Got us water and snacks when requested. The guide met us at Abu Simbel and explained everything we needed to know. Overall a smooth experience Also much cheaper than elsewhere for a private tour which included the tickets

Professional experience with this tour operator - We loved our daytour to Abu Simpel. We went for the option to get only a private ride to Abu Simpel from Aswan, without a guide. The tour operator was very professional. Beforehand it was easy to keep in contact with Whatsapp, and the drivers were right on time to pick us up. They got us very quickly to Abu Simpel, and back. We spend much more time at Abu Simpel then the average tourist (probably around 4 hours), but they patiently kept waiting for us. We even got some free snacks, which was very considerate. Would definitely recommend! Tip: if you book a private tour, make sure you will leave Aswan somewhere between 7-8. That way you arrive just when all the big tourist buses will depart again (since they even leave at 4 from Aswan)

Good Trip! Just take it !! - Good Trip and service. Excellent driver. He was right on time in the place we agreed. He waited 2 hours for us in Abu Simbel. The trip takes 3 hours to reach Abu Simbel from Aswan. After 1,5 hours in the road, he stopped in a coffe shop in the middle of the dessert to stretch our legs , walk a little and drink some coffee. Thanks !

Speedy and efficient Abu Simbel driver service - We used the driver only option and this was great for us. The driver was on time and drove quickly but safely. I’d highly recommend this service. The communication beforehand was good and reassured me the driver would be on his way. By taking the private driver we could start later in the day, this meant less time waiting in checkpoints and Abu Simbel was a lot less crowded since the tour groups had left.

Abu Simbel at your pace! Do it now - We were picked up on time from our hotel in Aswan and the best part is you can choose the time for your departure (most other tours leave at 4am which is not easy for everyone). What’s better is leaving later than everyone allows you to visit Abu Simbel without the tour bus crowds that have already left by 11am. Our driver drove well and got us there in 3 hours each way plus we stopped for a coffee / bathroom break in the middle. No nonsense transfer to Abu Simbel! Highly recommmended
