Thank you Mohammed Badwey for being an awesome guide, we had an amazing experience on this 4 day trip, certainly very memorable and looking forward to go back and do it all over again with the same company and the same guide, highly recommended! Aswan and Luxor are truly the most beautiful in Egypt!

Needless to say our guide was phenomenal, knowledgeable, informative, helpful and committed, he basically had the mask on 99 percent of the time although we were all vaccinated including himself but he kept it professional which makes him very unique, he took his time explaining the sights on the cruise boat before going to them knowing that it would be crowded there and not wanting to skip important information, making it so exciting and interesting to see in person.

our toddler was with us and he was extremely patient in dealing with her and even offered to stay with her while we went to visit tombs in the valley of the kings which he recommended to us based on his wide knowledge!

He answered questions and was patient in painting and connecting mythology and history together creating the most vivid view of ancient egypt and making it the most enjoyable experience!

Would I do it all over again? ABSOLUTELY YES!! and will certainly ask for Mr. Badwey to be out guide, and we would probably choose the longer trip”5 days” because we think that some of the places we visited had limited time frame and that made us feel rushed sometimes.. especially Idfu which was my favorite temple and definitely the biggest in my personal opinion but didn’t spend enough time because we had to rush back to the boat to sail to Luxor. So if your someone that likes to take pictures and videos or shop for some souvenirs after the tour you probably not going to have enough time.

There was an allusion to two certain topics : abu simbal being mentioned in itinerary stating that entrance/ admission is not included but come to find out neither addmission nor transportation was included ( basically making the whole sight not included in tour ) we ended up not going, we spent that morning touring local area around the boat location and went to the local market “soup” which was really great!
the second point is that the food on the boat was included BUT drinks were not so any water- juice-soda is an out of pocket cost which isnt clearly stated when booking tour and neither is stated on boat untill after making you sign off for the excess charge.
You so however get free tea/coffee during breakfast and tea hour at 4 o’clock.

TIP: if you’re planning on traveling from Cairo to Aswan DO NOT take the sleeper train, we will never take it again instead we will luckily fly next time.
Another tip is make plans to visit Abo simple and find the best deal possible to go. Oo and also the hot air balloon is a must do in Luxor, I used Sindbad and paid 500 EGP a person including everything.

Overall very pleased with our tour and looking forward to go on more tours with them in the near future, after one week of being back home we already wanna go back! Thank you

This has to be one of the best trips that we have ever done.

We were so incredibly lucky to have Mohamed as our private guide (we booked a group tour but we’re the only English on the trip). Mohamed is a PhD qualified Egyptologist who not only has the academic background to fully explain the history of the sites visited but he genuinely lives and breathes Egyptology. He is a natural story teller who brings the history to life giving you not only the historical facts but context linking this to other sites/periods.

We visited Aswan (Temple of Philae, the unfinished obelisk and the High Dam) and have an extra excursion to a Nubian village which included an opportunity to cool down by swimming in the Nile (definitely something I never thought I would do). We had an early morning start the next day to Abu Simbel which went without a hitch (our drivers were fantastic and all very careful and experienced). Abu Simbel was amazing and definitely worth the early morning start (there is a mid point coffee stop to stretch your legs and take photos of the amazing desert mirages. The mini bus was like new, air conditioned and very comfortable).

Following our trip to Abu Simbel we cruised up to Kom Ombo and had an early evening tour before dinner back on the ship and an overnight cruise to Edfu. After an early morning visit to the Temple of Horus we spent the day cruising up the Nile to Luxor. The ship may need sprucing up as the decor is outdated but the rooms were comfortable, the food more than adequate and the staff very pleasant. The addition of a pool on the top deck was fabulous after a day in the sun touring sites.

In Luxor we visited Luxor Temple in the evening followed by a packed morning of the Valley of the Kings (including the chance to go inside 3 of the opened tombs, the colours were amazing and it is hard to believe that they have survived so many 1000s of years), Hepshepsut’s mortuary temple and the Temple of Karnak (where he proudly showed (and translated) for us the 2 walls which the subject for his Masters degree).

At all stages Mohamed was able to easily talk us through what we were seeing linking this to the history of the relevant Pharoah/historical period. He has a very calm and easy style. He never lectured and we never felt that he was going through the motions in an uninterested style. He wanted to impart his love of the subject which he certainly did. We spent some lovely meals with him and he was very easy to talk to about a variety of topics of both ancient and modern Egypt.

Overall the trip was well organised and thank you to Mohamed in the Aswan office for his help with everything pre departure.

We were thinking about what the best way to visit several temples and important Egyptian sites during our vacation, and found this tour. After reading the reviews, we decided it was worth the try, and we could not be more satisfied with the outcome.

In our hotel in Aswan we were greeted by our travel guide Sayed. He is an egyptologist and has great experience as a tour guide, and is a good communicator, with great english and an even better mood. We were picked up in a private car, just for us, with AC and comfortable. This was the level that was maintained in the entire trip, all the way to our Hotel in Luxor, and Sayed always made sure we were informed of everything, well hydrated, always getting us cold water and beverages, and even complemented the tour with additional stops to see traditional Egyptian products and techniques from his friends. He explained the history of all the stops and more, and provided additional accommodations when we had any difficulty. His method is great - show the site, explain the history and some curiosities, then leave you free time to explore on your own and take photos. No queues, no complications with him! We could not be happier with our guide, and we have the pleasure to call him a true friend. On top of that, he’s a great photographer! The photos are proof of that.

The deluxe cruise took place in the Jaz Queen Jubilee, a beautiful ship with excellent accommodations. The bed was huge and comfortable, the room had more than enough space for everything, a balcony with a beautiful view of the Nile with two chairs for our comfort, even a mini fridge to keep our water cold! The bathroom was private and comfortable. The only downside was the wifi service, that did not work, despite the information that it did. The staff onboard was always eager to provide assistance, and had a smile ready for all occasions. Towels for the pool, room service, all meals were included, the buffet style meal area had excellent food, service and good prices for the beverages, that were the only paid things. A special thank you goes to Mohamed, the waiter that was in our area all days. He always had a smile to put us in a good mood despite the early wake-up times!

Through the entire process, the staff from Egypt Unlimited has been excellent in taking care of us, and making sure we were always well informed and well nourished. We fully recommend this trip for any first comer to Egypt!

Notes: we have decided to do the additional visit to Abu Simbel, which we recommend, as it is the most beautiful temple. The cost was $120/person and it was made on a private car from Aswan (3.5 hour drive to each side).

Recommendations: have change in EGP ready for tips to drivers, guards of temples that help with photos, etc; beware of scams, research prices before buying; bring SPF 50 subscreen; don’t count on the ship’s wifi, you will probably not have good internet access for 4 days, so invest in a SIM card if that is necessary.

If you found this page, please STOP looking anywhere else!! You have found the gold mine of Egypt travel help in Mohamed with Egypt Tours Unlimited!

We are two world traveling women from the States, We have been many places and have arranged a lot of travel. Egypt was daunting just in the amount of places to visit and the ways it can be done. Once we found Mohamed, literally EVERYTHING fell into place! He arranged our Nile cruise (within our very tight timeline), added Abu Simbel for us with flights and tour guides and full private transfers always. Our guides were exceptional both for their knowledge and for their ease of being with people and letting you discover on your own as well as take their helpful knowledge. All of our in-country flights were arranged by Egypt Tours Unlimited, including escorts in the airports, which seems unnecessary until you see firsthand what is involved in Egypt. We visited Cairo with all the sites, Abu Simbel, all the sites on the Nile cruise, and then hit the Red Sea-- with help from Mohamed at every destination! Even unplanned excursions like Mt. Sinai were seamlessly accomplished by Mohamed on short notice which, in retrospect, seeing what was involved, is astounding. Call Mohamed and just take your mind off everything for your trip to Egypt except packing your bag!

Our Nile cruise with private tours of the ancient Egyptian world have given us amazing, unforgettable memories thanks to a well organised, flexible and friendly operation from Egypt Unlimited.

Our tour guide Amr Al Shakairy was equal parts knowledgeable, friendly and accomodating every step of the way and he played a large part in allowing us to enjoy the full experience knowing that he had every aspect taken care of. The enthusiasm and deep understanding of the ancient Egyptian mythos made every stop interesting and we particularly loved his story telling ability (with props) and genuine desire for us to ask questions all the way through. Amr even went above and beyond in booking us a incredible sunrise hot air balloon ride after we'd disembarked. If you get Amr as a tour guide, you are in for a treat.

The ship itself was old fashioned in the perfect way adding to the ambiance of the cruise but was clean and well maintained. The staff were super friendly and the planned evening entertainment was something to behold. :)

All in all I would say that this is a unmissable experience and I would 100% recommend this company and tour guide to any and all!

This tour package was my favorite of all the things we did while in Egypt. It was well facilitated and they even accommodated our additional needs (i.e. covid testing for departure.) Our guide Ahmed was awesome! Very knowledgeable, informative and easy going. Our organizer Mohamed was very helpful throughout the booking process and kept in touch throughout. Everything on the itinerary was laid out and transitioned well so there were no surprises on what to expect. It was above and beyond my expectations when comparing to other tours we did while in Egypt. I definitely recommend Egypt unlimited for booking all of your tours. We added the Abu Simbel tour onto our cruise and it was well worth it, my favorite temple on the itinerary. The cruise itself was a nice change of pace and very similar to American style cruising with very clean and spacious cabins and a great buffet and bar with spirits.

We had the most incredible time on this tour. From the moment we were picked up in Aswan to when we were dropped at our next hotel in Luxor it was brilliant. Our guide, Amr Al Shakairy was the main reason our trip was as good as it was. He was so knowledgeable about everything we saw and made sure that we didn’t miss a single site. He was really prepared and had photos and other items to add context and flavor to every temple and site that we visited. He answered our hundreds of questions enthusiastically. One of the things I appreciated most about Amr was that he made us feel safe throughout our travels and made sure that we were always comfortable.

The cruise itself was great. The itinerary is flexible based on sailing times etc so our itinerary was slightly different to as advertised but as I said, we saw everything we were supposed to and so much more, just in a slightly different order. Getting to and from the boat to the various sites was so well organized as well. We never had to wait around for transport and it was always air conditioned and comfortable. Most of the touring finishes at around mid day which was lovely as you then get to relax on the boat by the pool for the rest of the afternoon. Every room has a big window onto the Nile so relaxing in our room out of the sun was also fantastic.

Overall I would highly recommend this to anyone, but I especially recommend Amr. At the end of our time with him it was like saying goodbye to a friend.

We booked a cruise on the Nile from Luxor to Aswan and it was utterly magical. The boat exceeded all expectations with the room and views, but most of all, our Egyptologist guide Ahmed Salama, who was with us for the entire trip, made our experience absolutely mind blowing! I would go as far as to say, one of the best times of my life. My partner and me were totally captivated with his knowledge, passion and true to tell an amazing story and I’ve come away just wanting my family to do the same. Thank you so much Ahmed, we are forever grateful. Hollie and Phil x

My husband and I had the most wonderful trip to Egypt through Egypt Unlimited Tours. We booked for a Nile Cruise (Aswan to Luxor) (four days and three nights) and then a full day in Cairo to see the Giza Pyramids and the Museum of Antiquities. We had three guides: Ashraf, Maria and Khaled for each of the three main locations. All three were lovely and fantastically interesting people, and so knowledgeable about the history of Egypt. We packed so much into seven days and enjoyed every minute of our time. Going through Egypt Unlimited was also MUCH less expensive than booking through UK tour companies and based on the people we spoke to on the cruise, our experience was almost certainly the better one. Could not recommend them more. They sorted everything out that we wanted to see and nothing was too much trouble.

I booked this trip very last minute and I’m so glad I did. From beginning to end, everything went smoothly with zero issues. Mohamed was waiting for me at the airport & was warm and welcoming.

Ahmed, the tour guide, is so knowledgeable, kind & helpful. Anything I needed, he would provide. He quickly organized additional excursions I wanted and private transportation to my next location at the end of the cruise. The private tour allowed for me to move at my own pace, have all my questions answered and gain deeper knowledge of all the sites than I probably would have received in a group setting. And also a personal photographer, as Ahmed was always eager to take pictures for me. I really appreciated his efforts to make me feel comfortable and taken care of.

This company made my first solo traveling experience smooth and stress-free and I highly recommend them!
