Absolutely worth the money! Pick up from hotel on time, smooth transfer to the airport and quick flight ✈️ Everyone was sleeping during flight. My guide Mohamed waited outside the airport and led me to the mini bus. He was very nice and positive person. Firstly, nice walk through the old market awaiting The Pyramids to open. You don’t have to carry your backpack as our bus was always near. You wait about 5 minutes for guides to collect tickets, no queues. Few hours for pyramids so you have plenty of time to take photos. Our guide was with me and my kids all the time and was sooo kind taking photos, helping to take the best shots! Telling us how to pose to have the best images. After that, we went to perfume shop, had tea ☕️ and a little talk about their natural oils. Then, we went for lunch to a buffet style restaurant which had plenty of space and their food was really good. Next, Egyptian Museum, it is a MUST! Mohamed is really an excellent guide and has a broad knowledge *****

The day tour was one hundred percent worth it. Our guide Rasha was a sweetheart and made our day sweeter with her pleasant and open-minded manner. The drive from Hurghada is of course tough and should not be underestimated. The many security checks, road conditions and also the traffic contribute to this. However, it is worthwhile and you get a lot on offer. Optionally, we could book a boat tour for 10 euros on the Nile through Cairo. (Recommendation on our part) Price-performance ratio is great! Kind regards Dustin & Samantha

The English guide, Nana, is just lovely. Full of knowledge, humor and made us feel safe at all times. The tour is superbs, with the valley of the kings being the highlight for me. The scenery alone is worth the trip. The only thing a little gratuitous was the alibaster factory, but there was no pressure to buy anything and it was a short stop, so the 5 stars remain. If you book this, you will not regret it.

It was really a great day. Very good organization and process. Ramadan was a great guide! You have to see the pyramids once in a lifetime! Thanks again to everyone involved for an unforgettable day!

Luxor was our hightlight!!! The best and only tour i would definetely recommend. A huge thank you to Nana, our guide!!! She was so perfect and made everything beyond our expectation.
