The trip to Luxor is highly recommended to everyone. Unfortunately I only have 1,000 characters. You definitely need the two days and should indulge in relaxation in the 5 star hotel. Our tour guide Adil was extremely friendly and accommodating. He took care of us as if we were his children. Also very pleasant in Corona times that you are picked up by a private driver and brought to Luxor, or even being driven around there by him. That makes the whole thing very pleasant and creates time for individual planning. You don't have to adapt to a group and you don't get rushed from attraction to attraction. Adil was very knowledgeable about the Egyptian history of the pharaohs and answered all questions satisfactorily. This tour really caters to individual needs and we really recommend it to everyone.

Driver top. Service top. Masseuse top. It was actually a real Thai massage. We really wouldn't have thought that way. Be careful if you live in the Markadi Spa. The driver is currently not allowed on the hotel premises. So you have to wait at the front of the barrier (as of 8/28/21)

Driver picked us up 5:30 sharp. Our guide Mohammed was very knowledgeable and we learned a lot from him. As we travelled with 6 years old kid, this private tour was excellent. If you want to reach the sight faster and before the crowds, go for it.

Great to be able to choose the departure time from Hurghada and stay as long as we wanted at each site. Nana, our guide, was great. She was super knowledgable and very friendly. Would definitely recommend the hot air balloon ride.

Very worthwhile trip with a good guide and driver. Everything was explained in detail and all questions were answered. Very nice hotel right on the Nile. Since there is so much to see, you should definitely book a two-day tour.
