My rating concerns the service of the tour operator and the guide. For plateau very often and accessible I was able to make some changes to my visit before the Tour and the operator very available and very open. My guide also go an excellent person a self-taught Spanish speaker of excellent human quality who accompanied me and to ask in December I have the bus line and pick me up when he dropped me off at the bus station of go bus. The kiffe made me aware of all the options I had at each of the sites but practically left to improvise to measure each stage of the tour. The round trip coach from Cairo to Luxor elegant and comfortable trunk insect which concerns the part of the seats on the other hand even in autumn or the temperatures do not exceed 27 degrees he tries the air conditioning at all costs even at night and it is cold you have to plan a jacket and the toilets did not put paper or soap but for that...

A fairly comfortable bus you have access to wifi as well as adjustable seats and a tablet with games and several films. There are breaks during the range to stretch your legs as well as a lunchbox. We also had the visit of Luxor with our guide Youssef who was super nice and attentive to our request. He is passionate about his work and has taught us a lot of things. Our driver Fares was great and stayed with us at the station until we got on the bus and our driver in Luxor Mustapha was very nice to us. Good job I really recommend. Everything is beautiful

Everything was great!! We really enjoyed the tour! The program was according to our liking and the guide, Mahmoud Nafee was great and very helpful! We made him wait a lot in order to take photos The driver of the mini bus was very nice and he was driving safely, we felt like we could trust him. They also offered us lots of water because the day was extremely hot. The driver that picked us up from our hotel, Ramy, was amazing!! He was very helpful and he took care of us. Very nice people! I rate the tour with 5/5 stars! The only thing that we didn't like was the fact that the bathroom of the bus that took us form Cairo to Luxor was unbelievably dirty and it didn't have water or soap.
