My friend and I greatly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Sameh, was very knowledgeable. Sameh would take us through the sight explaining different parts of the structure then give us time to explore and look ourselves. There was always more time for things we took an extra interest so we didn't feel rushed. Sameh is a native to Southern Egypt and his knowledge of what felt like everything around us was impressive. We our 2 females traveling solo in Egypt and felt safe and comfortable with this company, no hustle or pressure. If you are looking to tour this area, I would recommend this one. It's private, it will be your party members, guide, and driver. There was much more freedom at the sights as we were not part of a large tour bus being herded like sheep. Sameh also chooses excellent places for lunch, fresh, Egyptian style and authentic. We can't thank him for the experience.
Our guide Ahmed Abass was wonderful. His knowledge of the ancient Egyptians is exceptional. He was friendly and accommodating, slowing the pace of the tour to suit our needs. He was full of helpful hints and cannot be recommended enough. The cruise was good. Apart from a few minor niggles like a poor aircon and the odd smell of diesel when the boat is still it is a good experience. It does need more sail time as your are sat in Aswan and Luxor for a full day and a half each. The food was good, combining Egyptian and western well. The transport to the sights are all in modern cars.
Great experiece. Entertaining woman guide, very nice drivers, which do not lose their or out time, drived well and fast. I do appreciate the presence of personal security guy, which helped group to feel safe and secure from local bussines men, which were realy rude and annoying. Well organizated, I payed full price for trip and entries, I had to pay only the toilet fees, which noboby can be protected from... anywhere. My kids were treated kindly and friendly. Thanx so much. Can be only recomended. Elizabeth
Omar and Ramadan were excellent guides and pilots. We spent the most time in the air when compared to all the other balloons on this day. Landing further away from the airfield gave an amazing experience flying over monuments and houses with villagers looking up and waving as they ate their breakfast. When we landed next to a school the children came running out to watch. The balloon was safe and well maintained. Thank you Omar and Ramadan for giving an experience to our family that will last a lifetime.
The tour was about 10 hours. We managed to see maybe the most important objectives from Luxor in one day. Initially, we wanted to see Luxor as a day trip from Hurgada but it is much better to come to Luxor for at least 2 days and make this day tour, the Full East-West day tour.
