It’s a long day! But so worth it, left the hotel at 5.30 am and buckled in for a 5 hour coach journey to Luxor. Our tour guide Nana was fantastic, she was so welcoming and friendly and certainly added to the experience. Made us feel relaxed about the barrage of street side sellers. And what to avoid so you don’t have to spend unnecessarily. The only things you’ll have to pay extra for is the Nile cruise which is great fun and drinks at the restaurant. You may also need extra cash for toilet breaks.

The tour guide Nana was amazing she had a great deal of knowledge and was very efficient. It’s a long day travelling and it is really hot so take light breathable clothing and a hat/scarf for your head. All of this is absolutely worth it and I learnt a lot about Egyptian history. Take €10 for the boat trip as it isn’t included but worth it and also have change handy to use the toilets! They take any currency.

It was very amazing experience to Luxor. Everything was well organized. The sunrise air balloon ride was superb and unforgettable!! The guide Amran was a real amazing guide. He was friendly, polite, speaks fluent English! he also, helped me with the great spots for photos. 100% Recommended this tour without a doubt!!! Thanks again for the amazing time!

Ramadan & the team from Hod Hod Soliman hot air balloons made our trip unbelievebly amazing! They were so kind and kept us informed when we arrived into Luxor. In the air, Captain Omar described the sights and how hot air ballooning works. I would highly recommend booking with Ramadan @ Hod Hod Soliman!

Nana, thanks a lot for make this day unique for our memories, your way to explain, your patience, your energy, and charisma are unique, once again thank you nana ♥️
