On 22.04.2021 I made this trip together with my fiancée. In a small bus we were brought from Hurghada with three other participants to Luxor. There we met our tour guide Nana at the first stop, the temple of Karnak. After that we had a ride across the Nile and then lunch. In the Valley of the Kings we visited four tombs (and learned to appreciate the work of the builders even more, as we got to know about the merciless heat in the Valley of the Kings). These first two stops were especially interesting to me. But the rest of the day was also worthwhile. Nana was a very sympathetic and knowledgeable tour guide. She made the day a wonderful experience!

What a great experience! Everything was very well organized, with hotel pickup to being met by our guide as we arrived in Luxor at the Karnak temple. We had an amazing time exploring Luxor with our guide Adel. We had booked the tour in German and he provided us with great insights to each site we visited and was extremely friendly and welcoming. Overall it was a great day where we learnt a lot and enjoyed it very much. For anyone looking to do the tour in German we can highly recommend Adel! It is a long day (ca. 14 hours) but very much worth it!

Good drivers, the guide was also very open and provided useful information. The mini bus is in a very good condition and was very clean. Even the capacity for was about 15, we were only 6 tourists. Booked the trip one day before. Communication with the travel agent was as well very good. The total value of the additional entries was 580 egipt pounds(Karnak, Valley of the kings and hatshepsut). Is better to have local money and not usd or eur, as they adjust the rate in their favor.

The driver was very punctual at the hotel reception at 5 a.m. He was a very good driver, knowing every details of the road by head. We felt very safe with him during the whole trip. The local guide, Mohammed, was a fantastic guide, well prepared, with a huge lexical knowledge. We learned a lot from him about the history, hieroglyph writing. We always had a lot of time at all location, stops.

What a wonderful day! Yasser our guide was excellent-he had fantastic knowledge of the sites and was clearly very passionate about Egyptian history. He paced everything just right, never rushing us or keeping us for too long. Brilliant day, I would highly recommend! P.s. a tip-don’t buy the add ons to the trip online-you can buy these on the day for a fraction of the price!
