My friend and I greatly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Sameh, was very knowledgeable. Sameh would take us through the sight explaining different parts of the structure then give us time to explore and look ourselves. There was always more time for things we took an extra interest so we didn't feel rushed. Sameh is a native to Southern Egypt and his knowledge of what felt like everything around us was impressive. We our 2 females traveling solo in Egypt and felt safe and comfortable with this company, no hustle or pressure. If you are looking to tour this area, I would recommend this one. It's private, it will be your party members, guide, and driver. There was much more freedom at the sights as we were not part of a large tour bus being herded like sheep. Sameh also chooses excellent places for lunch, fresh, Egyptian style and authentic. We can't thank him for the experience.
Our guide Ahmed Abass was wonderful. His knowledge of the ancient Egyptians is exceptional. He was friendly and accommodating, slowing the pace of the tour to suit our needs. He was full of helpful hints and cannot be recommended enough. The cruise was good. Apart from a few minor niggles like a poor aircon and the odd smell of diesel when the boat is still it is a good experience. It does need more sail time as your are sat in Aswan and Luxor for a full day and a half each. The food was good, combining Egyptian and western well. The transport to the sights are all in modern cars.
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.
The trip was perfectly organised! Bob, our guide, had all the information you could dream of, and he was willing to assist you all the way through.
Der Trip von Hurghada nach Luxor war schon anstrengend aber hat sich auf jeden Fall gelohnt! Es hatte alles super geklappt!
