What people are saying about Luxor

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.

Great experience, I recommend it with my eyes close. My wife and I had a very nice experience our guide took us all around the East bank of Luxor. Also our carriage driver Mustafa was very nice and attentive at all times. Overall great experience and would recommend to anybody coming to Luxor...

Amazing experience to discover Luxor, they picked us at our hotel and dropped us at our request to a good restaurant. I recommend it to have a nice insight in the Egyptian culture.

A good alternative to do the tour in 2 days. Everything was very well coordinated , plane , hotel and transfer . The guide was an Egyptologist and spoke perfect Spanish.

Amazing trip!! Is little bit far but very nice because if you don’t have enough time is recommended.. El guía muy amable, habla muy bien el español.
