Day Trip to Valley of the Kings, Luxor Reviewed by Rositsa, 02/13/2019

Very good experience, especially for that price!

We got a bigger boat this time and it made the day much better! The island itself was a bit restricted to visit but the beach is amazing! The snorkeling went well too, the crew was very helpful and easy going. The food was plenty, tasteful and of good quality. Underwater photos were made, offered but not pushed. We very much liked the day and would book again without hesitation!

Day Trip to Valley of the Kings, Luxor Reviewed by Marius, 01/29/2019

It's a worth and impressive trip despite of many hours on road.

I'm very satisfied with this amazing trip which fulfilled one of my childhood dreams. The scenery of these 3 pyramids it's very impressive and hard to describe in words. Besides, the company provide a very comfortable minibus with skilled drivers and professional guide. My guide, Ahmed, except of his good knowledges of history and archeology entertained us with many jokes and making the very long trip (21 hours) more enjoyable. He even bought for all of us (11 persons) a present consisting in something sweet and a bottle of water which was very appreciate of us. The whole team starting with the driver fetching me from Makadi Bay to Hurghada, the 2 drivers and the guide were very kind and professional. That's why I fully recommend this day trip with this company.

Nice flight, only 1 by 1 in the air, no twin flights.

My wife and daughter made this trip, everything was very nice, no irritating selling merchants, fun with the conversation between the sea police and the boat rider. They were a meter or two outside their territory but hard to be inside the box if the wind is wrong, better to have a safe flight than to drop in the water.
