A good value, BUT...
Jan. 2020 • Couples
Let me start off by saying that all things considered, this is a petty good deal. However, many of the specifics were less than ideal.

The two of us were picked up in a sedan from our hotel. It was nice having a private tour guide and driver, but the sedan got cramped in the back during the long stretches of driving, especially considering this is described as being by bus.

During the drive to Edfu (the first stop), the driver got cut off by a tuk-tuk and had to be held back by the tour guide to stop him from getting out of the car to fight the tuk-tuk driver.

Once we got to Edfu we felt extremely rushed. My girlfriend is very focused on taking good photos, so, mindful of the time constraints, she more or less went off and did her own thing while I listened to the guide.

Speaking of, our guide was not very good. He made several factually incorrect statements, was difficult to understand, and was very pushy. He kept telling us, "Quickly! Quickly!" and rushing us along. After only about 30 min at the temple (which is huge, btw) he wanted to get going to the next site, but he begrudgingly gave us 30 min free time.

After another 90 minute drive, we arrived at Kom Ombo where we had a similar experience: very rushed, a weird fixation on banal details in the temple's construction (he focused a lot on masonry joints for some reason), and 30 min free time. He seemed annoyed my girlfriend wanted to take photos. More "Quickly! Quickly!"

Despite these gripes, the sites are amazing. I just would have appreciated more time, especially at Edfu.

By now, it was about noon, and the promised lunch was nowhere to be found. Thank God we'd planned ahead and brought plenty of snacks. They also provided zero snacks or bottled water, despite what this listing claims.

Next was onto the Aswan High Dam. This stop should either be skipped or made optional. We spent about 2 minutes here before leaving. Massive waste of driving time that should have been reappropriated to Edfu and Kom Ombo.

Philae Temple was okay. It's a small site, and a plus side of the tour guide was that he handled the haggling for the boat to the island. (You have to haggle for the boat AFTER you have your ticket stub torn. So you're stuck there.) Philae is a smallish site, but it's an absolute zoo. The place was mobbed, and it was difficult to navigate the interior of the temple.

By the time we wrapped up at Philae and got back to the car, it was about 4:30, and we hadn't been fed yet. We were then driven 30 min to a restaurant in Aswan where we had an average (and uncomfortable) dinner with our tour guide.

I think this could have been much more enjoyable with a few changes.

1) A better tour guide who knew his stuff better and didn't rush us every step of the way.
2) Cut out the Aswan Dam and use that time at the huge Edfu complex.
3) Feed us before 5 PM.

We took this tour on December 29, 2019. We like our guide Mohamed Adel. He is very professional, polite, and knowledgeably. His English is very good and easy to understand. We give him a ‘high five’ for being our tour guide.

Amazing Trip!
Oct. 2019 • Solo
Full day trip to Aswan from Luxor with Hesham was great! The day is packed with visits to 4 different sites and you will learn a ton at each location. If you have questions about the history or the Egyptian mythology, don't hesitate to ask Hesham as he will be able to answer any and every inquiry. Definitely bring some confortable shoes as there will be a lot of walking but it is worth it. Lunch was great and seeing the sun start to go down over the Nile was worth the $. Would highly recommend doing this trip if you have the chance.

Long day...lots to see
Apr. 2019 • Family
Our tour guide, Ashraf, was excellent and his knowledge of, and pride in Egypt, made the day very rewarding. The day did not start well, we were to be picked up at 0600 and it did not happen until 0745...which came back to haunt! This is a very long day in a bus, but we knew that going in, so no complaints. We saw some fantastic historical sites and again, the guide was a walking encyclopedia and took great pride in sharing the history with us. Lunch in Aswan, was late in the day, but was a good feed. As stated earlier, the late start came back to haunt...if you go on the tourist advisory sites, they will advise against travel on the highway between Luxor and Aswan, between 1800 and 0600...well, we left Kom Ombo at 1930 and still had three hours to drive back to Luxor. We were not out of the Aswan territory, when we got stopped at a military check point. They were none too pleased with our driver and it resulted in a police escort...for the last 45 minutes. Likely not very safe, but in hindsight, we will always have something to talk about! If we were re-doing this, I would opt for the cruise from Luxor to Aswan...but I would definitely want Ashraf as a guide.

Easy and fun way to get to Aswan from Luxor
May 2019 • Friends
This was an easy and fun way to get to Aswan from Luxor. Roshdy, our guide, was very attentive and knowledgable about the sites we visited (Edfu / Kom Omhbo / Philae Temples, and Aswan High Dam) and made our discovery of these ancient sites a fun experience. Our driver, Ramses, was very patient in navigating the countless speed bumps on the country road and was always there to resume our drive when we finished our temple visits. Once finished with the sightseeing and arrived in Aswan, we stopped at an essential oil shop and were given a 45-minute presentation on Egypt's various essences. I appreciated this experience however my stomach and brain was hungry for we had not had lunch by then (4 pm) and my attention span was limited. We then drove 20 minutes to a local restaurant in Aswan and had a delicious meal as the sun set over the Nile, after which we were driven to our guest house in Aswan. Overall, easy door to door service with a smile!

Great day trip to Aswan
I had a great time with my guide Roshdy khodary and our driver Ramses. Roshdy was great at explaining the history and even acted a few scenes for us. We were able to see edfu, kon ombo, philae temples and high dam in Aswan. Overall, I would say the trip was great and busy. I would totally recommend my guide and driver for a future trip. They would do a great job taking care of you!

Ambiguous tour , long day in a car
This is a very ambiguous tour for the distance needed to travel to Aswan ....... Firstly my wife and I were picked up at 0700 in a small sedan vehicle by a driver and guide. The 1st stop the temple of Edfu is 2 and a half hours south of Luxor despite being advertised as only being an hour . The Temple itself is fantastic.... back in the car for another hour and a half down to Kom Ombo temple .... by now you have spent 4 hours in the car with about 2 hours worth of sight seeing at this point it’s now 1:30pm and time for lunch ...... however it’s still another hour and a half down to Aswan, so we skipped lunch as we just wanted to get on the road. We got down to Aswan at 3 and drove straight out to the high Dam as it’s another 20 mins through the town of Aswan and through multiple police check points.
We finally got to the temple of Philae and it was AMAZING!! Basically what we had been waiting for all day. However this part was now rushed. We were now informed that technically tourists had to be off the road by 6pm curfew as the tourist police are not at the check points after this time . However it’s not almost 5pm and we have a 5 hour drive back !!
Unfortunately the day was so spoilt by this !!
Emo should not advertise a tour that is un -achievable. The highway back to Luxor is only a 3 hour drive but we were told is unsafe after 6 pm For tourists vehicles . This was a Long day spent in a small car rather than a bus which made it very uncomfortable .
My suggestion is to stay in Aswan the night and find alternate route back to Luxor maybe by sleeper train .

A day trip to Aswan 25th October 2018


Our fantastic Egyptologist Ahmed picked us up from our hotel in Luxor at 0700 with a big smile and a friendly handshake. From there we commenced our journey down south towards Aswan. Ahmed is so knowledgeable and explained so much about ancient Egyptian history during the car journey, time just melted away. He also knows all the good spots along the road to enjoy Turkish Coffee and beautiful traditional food , we never went hungry or thirsty..... we especially enjoyed the stop off to get a sugar Cain syrup drink, extremely tasty!! Ahmed kept us entertained throughout the whole day and we really felt safe in his hands !! We highly recommend him as a Egyptologist guide and urge people to request him by name through Emo tours. Really hope to get him for our 2nd trip out to the West Bank valley of the queens tour we have booked with Emo. I would also like to mention that the journey to Aswan would not be possible without our fabulous driver Abdul who made sure we were looked after the entire 15 hour journey !! His driving was fantastic and his comfortable car made all the difference.
Thank you again to Ahmed & Abdul!! What an amazing day we had !!
