We really enjoyed the tour. The day was long and exhausting, but it was absolutely worth it. Our tour guide Assem was very committed and always entertained us with interesting anecdotes because we were a small tour group and were therefore more flexible in terms of time. All in all, we can fully recommend the tour. (Note: we were there in December with pleasant temperatures around 25+ degrees).

The tour was very well organized and definitely worth it! Shaban, our guide was very nice and tried extremely hard. We were picked up at the hotel just before 4 a.m. and then drove to Luxor, where we visited one sight after the other and enjoyed the day to the full. It was really impressive and very interesting! In the early evening we went back to the hotels and we were there again shortly after 9 p.m. Totally recommended!!

The tour was very well planned and very interesting. Our tour guide Shapan was very friendly and gave lots of interesting information about the sights. We were picked up at the hotel (Port Ghalib, Marsa Alam) by a private driver at 4 a.m. and were back at 11 p.m. The first stop was the Karnak Temple, then there was a Nile River Cruise followed by a buffet lunch with a wide variety of meat, fish, salads, side dishes and desserts. Then the Valley of the Kings and 3 tombs were visited as well as another temple. At the end we visited statues and a factory where you could buy homemade souvenirs. It was a very exciting trip, there was enough chilled water in the air-conditioned bus. Our tour guide also gave us a bracelet as a farewell gift and some snacks for the journey. 100% recommendation!!
