This is a long day out but totally worth it. We stayed in Cairo for the week, therefore we flew to Luxor, a 1-hour flight at around 6am, we flew back around 8.30pm. We were met at Luxor Airport by our wonderful guide Youla who is from Luxor. Youla is lovely, so friendly and very knowledgeable and passionate about Egyptology. We had the best day with her! We were very excited to visit The Valley of the Kings, Queen Hatshepsut’s Temple, Luxor Temple and the mesmerising Karnak Temple – major highlights of our trip all in one day. We had a lovely lunch at a restaurant in Karnak, good options for vegetarians too. Our flight back was delayed and Youla got her thinking cap on and suggested we have a trip on the Nile in a felucca boat, it was beautiful trip on the Nile just before sunset so the light was amazing, and it was a lovely end to an incredible day.
We enjoyed this trip so much! I would recommend it to anyone thinking about it... before the trip we were a little worried about it, especially because it takes approx. 5 hours one way... but it was perfect... the drivers were responsible, we felt really safe, also in Cairo, where the traffic is really chaotic :) we made enough stops for buying coffee, toilette, etc. The guide in Cairo was perfect, spoke with such enthusiasm, also giving insider tips about life in Egypt, where to buy souvenirs, where to book a camel ride by the Pyramids... Would really recommend the boat drive on the Nile, worth the money... Looking forward of booking also a trip to Luxor when we come back next time... Shukran !
Klare Empfehlung. Es war zwar wirklich ein langer Tag, aber wir konnten gut im Mini Van schlafen und somit die Zeit in Kairo wirklich genießen. Aufgrund der Epidemielage waren wir fast allein an den Pyramiden! Die Fahrer waren sehr verantwortungsbewusst und der Guide Ahmed einfach toll und sehr mitreißend. Das Mittagessen war sehr basic, aber völlig ausreichend. Wir haben zusätzlich noch eine Bootsfahrt auf dem Nil gemacht (ca. 5 EUR pP extra). Wir waren von 2 Uhr nachts bis 21 Uhr abends unterwegs.
The guide Gabri was really friendly, approachable and supportive. He made us feel welcome and the group become quickly a friendly family. He know a great deal and answered questions. The drive was brilliant too.
Long day with an early start but a great way to get it all done in one day! Ahmed was a great guide, so knowledgeable and entertaining!
