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!
We enjoyed this 5 days 4 nights Cruise from Luxor to Aswan. You can taste the Egyptian culture along the river cruise! Ramzy is a nice guide, he treated us drinks along our journey. Always cheerful and explain history of Egypt on spot of historical sites. An extra favour he helped, finding us an adapter for charging our phones! Really appreciate that! Tickets for the attractions are not included, the price of ticket is cheap, and tipping is required for some transportation. The basic ticket of the Valley of the Kings can visit 3 tombs, you can buy extra tickets for special ones. We know that when we exit, so check it out if you want to know more.
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.
What a great experience! Everything was very well organized, with hotel pickup to being met by our guide as we arrived in Luxor at the Karnak temple. We had an amazing time exploring Luxor with our guide Adel. We had booked the tour in German and he provided us with great insights to each site we visited and was extremely friendly and welcoming. Overall it was a great day where we learnt a lot and enjoyed it very much. For anyone looking to do the tour in German we can highly recommend Adel! It is a long day (ca. 14 hours) but very much worth it!
Really nice experience, captain Omar was very helpful before and during the balloon ride, he made us feel very safe and gave us all the necessary information. They arrived at our hotel at the exact time we established, and after the ride they left us on the west side and talked to our driver to meet him. All in all an amazing experience, great service made possible by a professional company.
