Bus was very uncomfortable, especially to be on for 8+ hours of the trip. Valley of the kings was so interesting, especially as our guide Nanna was so knowledgable and passionate! Didn’t see much for the Nile tour but it was fine. Food and rest of the trip was good. Highly rate Nanna

We did the trip to Luxor from Soma Bay that we booked the day before. The organization went smoothly via WhatsApp and the transfer was on time, we were in a minibus with 2 drivers and traveled from 5:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. in total, being the last to be collected. In Luxor we met Shaban, our tour guide, and spent a very nice and instructive day together. Shaban guided us through the attractions in German, where the tickets were organized in advance and so we didn't have to wait, and explained many interesting things to us. What I particularly liked about our excursion was the small group size and the fact that you had time alone at each station to take photos. The trip across the Nile (10€ extra) and lunch at the Krokodil restaurant were also great. A very successful trip that I can only recommend.

We were picked up early in the morning, but a very long day was wonderful. We had guides by the name of Chaban for sights in Luxor. At this point, many thanks again to Chaban for the detailed information and the unforgettable day, since he didn't show a program but answered our questions individually. It was a tight program for the day, where only a tiny part of Egyptian history can be seen. The tour operator kept giving us cold water for free. It's also important to realize that you can't see all of the tombs in the Valley of the Kings - especially as some tombs cost separately. Also the other stations like Karnak Temple, Hatshepsut Temple and the Colossi of Memnon. A tour well away from mass tourism implemented by the organizer. Thank you again for an unforgettable day.
