I really enjoyed this trip! My guide was wonderful. He knew all kinds of facts about the temples and he made the whole day fun! The temples themselves are incredible — definitely something to not miss! I love the story of Ramesses II and Nefertari, and both the distant and recent history of Abu Simbel are both unforgettable. I definitely recommend this tour!
