Our private tour to Idfu and Kom Ombo was amazing!
We enjoyed our visit to these temples with our excellent guide Mahmoud.
Mahmoud was on time and very knowledgeable. He shared many fascinating stories about the temples and there anceint myths.
We were amazed at the beauty & quality of both temples. We were able to set the pace of the visits and never felt rushed or over extended.
We also enjoyed a fantastic meal in a nice restaurant, which serves local Egyptian food.
I highly recommend Mahmoud & Nile Voyage Egypt. We had a most memorable experience.

Edfu is another not to be missed temple while in Egypt. It is grand, extremely well preserved, and almost breath taking. Kom Ombo also is an excellent stop. It is an unusual double temple design: structures were duplicated to worship two different gods. Excellent tour!!

Our guide Rami gave us an incredible day tour! From the time we met him in the hotel, we soaked up his extensive knowledge of both ancient Egyptian history and modern culture. He set a great pace by providing detailed information at each temple we visited and allowing us time to wander on our own. I highly recommend this tour!
