Overall rating

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.

Excellent and knowledgeable tour guide. Really had a wonderful trip visiting the Luxor area. Amazing history and lots to see, Valley of Kings, Karnak temple and Hatsetput temple. Get up early in the morning is a must. But, worth the effort.

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.

What a fabulous (if not too long) day. Saw the pyramids, had boat trip on Nile, camel ride, Egyptian museum, perfume and papyrus factory
