Day was successful, good organization. Really enjoyed quad ride, buggy was much too short of a ride. The Bedouin village is just for tourists, nothing authentic over there, it was a bit sad. The jeep ride was very bumpy, sometimes intentionally by the driver, which was quite terrible for me as I get car sick, but others in the jeep seemed to enjoy it. A bit strange with Bedouins and entertainers asking for money, but they are not insisting. No terrarium was visited, this should be removed from the listing as it is false. Food was decent, show was OK. Good guide, Jinu, really enjoyed him. Overall, nice people and experience.

This was a massive experience for me and my family, I recommend taking this as a day out any time of the year as now is December and the water is still warm enough, the boat was excellent and the crew more than helpful, no rush in giving your briefing and also very good equipment to use included in price, Abdul and his Brother took lovely pictures for us under the water and Morad arranged a beautiful light lunch on the boat in the afternoon. Try the White Dolphin in Hurgada, you will not be disappointed. 10 *****

This trip was awesome! Ahmad our guide impressed us , he is just made to do his job, he is the best guide I’ve ever seen. The road is long but the drivers were so good, we slept very well on the road to Cairo and back to the hotel we have a lot of fun. We eaten on a boat, the lunch was very tasty, and we were really enjoyed the little ride with the felucca If you visit Egypt this is a must to do!!! Thank you all very much

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.

Had a very nice day in Luxor. Both at the temple complex and at the tombs. The excursion is highly recommended!
