Nowhere in the world during our extensive travels, be it business, pleasure, or military service, have we ever experienced a more welcoming host as the owner of Villa Misk in Aswan Egypt. Ahmed (the owner) went above and beyond to show us hospitality and care. Even going so far as to save our vacation when a tour company we had booked online (and pre-paid for) did not show up. He made a few calls and quickly someone arrived by boat only meters away from our door first take us to the ticket station at Marina Philae and then to Philae Temple and finally back to Villa Misk.
He (Ahmed) also arranged taxis for us into the city for dinner at our request, our transportation to the airport at the end of our stay, and breakfast for us two days in a row. This is a big deal because Villa Misk is not so much a hotel but rather a guesthouse if you are European or think Airbnb if you are from North America. Our experience here we can honestly say was better than the 5-star hotels and resorts we stayed at in Cairo and Luxor.
Overall and to the point, Ahmed and his Villa Misk have our absolute trust, gratitude, and of course recommendations.
