The trip was very well organised and the guide was very clear about where we were going, what we were doing and what times to meet up after exploring during our 'free time'. It was a long journey but we got to see an awful lot. During the trip we got to see about 4 sites and upon returning to the coach we would find bottles of water, crisps, chocolate and cans of soda waiting for us which was a nice touch (and needed). The one regret i have about the trip is that at the valley of the kings you will have access to 3 tombs, you will have to pay extra to visit Tutankhamuns tomb (around £15 english per person) and i wish we had done that, but thats the only regret. Loved everything else and as we neared Luxor the guide told us so much about the way of life out here, we learnt so much. Would definitely recommend this tour!

Fully packed day, really interesting and informative. The guide was very knowledgable and gave good advice. Downside was the journey to and from Luxor as the drivers drove like “bats out of hell” there and back so at times it was a little scary so not for the fainthearted! Worth paying extra 300 Egyptian pounds to get entrance to King Tut’s tomb even if you only have about 1 hr in the Valley of the Kings overall - made it worth the scary travel and not to be missed

Ahmed is an exceptional guide and the whole team was very attentive throughout the trip (they gave us drinks several times, they are polite and friendly and made sure of our comfort at all times etc ...)! The walk on the Nile was very pleasant and the meal very good !!! We had a wonderful day and I have nothing but positive to say !!! I recommend without hesitation! (I also went to Cairo with another agency recommended by the hotel because we decided at the last minute to go there and I can tell you that it was 100 times less good than this excursion to Luxor and much more expensive than what getyourguide offers!)
