The experience that I had at this place was perfect. It is a city in North Africa, and it is very well organized and fairly clean, in comparison with the tourist area. The people are wonderful, friendly, polite, helpful and have good sense of humor. The sunsets are something magical in this area, as you are transported back centuries and more if you have the opportunity to visit Felucca, which I highly recommend. At night the promenade and the center gets very crowded. And from here, you have the ability to do endless hikes to places like Abu Siimbel, the Unfinished Obelisk, Elephantine Island, the island of Philae and many more.
