One of the best tours I’ve been on whilst traveling due to the guide and itinerary. Our guide, Mohamed Zeidan, was patient, knowledgeable, and very protective over the group. He made the experience really enjoyable and created a friendly atmosphere. The tour itself was great as well; it seemed like every stop after lunch we were getting a snacks or treats and always cold water available.

You must book this trip if you are in Egypt-Hurghada! We were picked up in front of our hotel in time and droped off in the same place. Cold water was provided in Luxor which helped a lot. Our guide was Nana, she is amazing! She has cool stories, and tells them in most interesting way. You are lucky if she will be your guide.. always looking for shady spots and watching us like her children.. even warned us about egyptian scammers haha. Trip was long but worth every penny!! Thank you Nana.

The tour was really good! We had Assem as a tour guide and he spoke German very well. Already on the way there he told us a lot about the Egyptian culture, the sights and its historical background. The 4 hour drive felt really short. Overall, we were in the Karnak Temple, eat in a restaurant, in the Valley of the Kings, in the Hatshepsut Temple and briefly at the Colossi of Memnon. After the Hatshepsut temple, we made a detour to a village or a shop where a wide variety of figures, jugs, etc. are made from alabaster and other types of stone. This was the only selling stop on the tour and I thought it was appropriate as the village had some history related to the Valley of the Kings. On the way back, Assem said something else, answered questions and gave out snacks. We got a bottle of water after each stop that was nicely chilled.
