Peter guided us through...
Peter guided us through the Unfinished Obelisk, the High Dam and the Philae Temple. He's a great guide, and he answered all our (numerous) questions.. He did his best to accommodate our wishes, and we really recommend him! The car was comfy and clean and the driver wrote very safely!

Aswan Philae Temple, Unfinished Obelisk, and High Dam Private Half-Day Tour
It was our first tour in our trip through Egypt and we were glad that we got Mustafa has our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. We like him so much that we decided to book the Nubian village tour with him in the afternoon. As for the tour, I definitely recommend it. They take care of all the transportation and ticket for you, so you can sit, relax and absorb all the knowledge since you are visiting the major site in Aswan

Aswan Philae Temple, Unfinished Obelisk, and High Dam Private Half-Day Tour
A very nice tour and a must do in Aswan. Our guide Habi Abdo was very knowledgeable and explained everything in detail. All three places included in the tour are absolutely marvellous and should never be missed. Both the tour and the guide are highly recommended.

Philae Temple-unfinished Obelisk And High Dam Day Tour In Aswan
Definitely not worth it to include the obelisk! Would recommend adding the prices of the sites so that people can bring the appropriate cash with them since they do not take card at really any of the sites. Philae was stunning and Michael was the best tour guide!

Aswan: Guided Tour to High Dam, The Obelisk & Philae Temple by Motorboat
Very well organized. Karim was super friendly and knowledgeable with very good German. He managed to bring history to life, especially in Philae Temple. One of the best guides we had in Egypt. Would absolutely do a tour with him again. We asked to be dropped off at the bazaar at the end instead of the hotel (which was much further) but this was no problem at all.

Philae Temple and High-Dam Half-day tour in Aswan
Very professional and friendly team. I was met in the morning by Mohammed who bought water and snacks for me. He introduced me to my guide and also helped at the end of the trip get my bags organized for my transfer to Luxor. My guide was Sharif - excellent English and very knowledgeable - I learned a lot about the history of Egypt, the dam and the temple. Perfect balance of time explaining and individual time to walk around and take photos. Make sure you take plenty of cash - as stated you are responsible for entry fees and boat - total was 480 EGP.
