What people are saying about Luxor

It’s a long day! But so worth it, left the hotel at 5.30 am and buckled in for a 5 hour coach journey to Luxor. Our tour guide Nana was fantastic, she was so welcoming and friendly and certainly added to the experience. Made us feel relaxed about the barrage of street side sellers. And what to avoid so you don’t have to spend unnecessarily. The only things you’ll have to pay extra for is the Nile cruise which is great fun and drinks at the restaurant. You may also need extra cash for toilet breaks.

Long trip! Very hot (wear comfortable sandals, hat and sunscreen). Water provided. Bring 5EGP for every toilet. Additional total of 1300EGP/person for Karnak, Hatshepsut, Valley of the Kings (can visit 3 tombs - Tutankhamen is 300EGP extra). Banana island is optional (around 200EGP if I recall correctly) Moshera was very informative telling us also about the culture of the villages we transited by. She gave us time to wonder freely but explained and gave context before letting us go on site.

The tour guide Nana was amazing she had a great deal of knowledge and was very efficient. It’s a long day travelling and it is really hot so take light breathable clothing and a hat/scarf for your head. All of this is absolutely worth it and I learnt a lot about Egyptian history. Take €10 for the boat trip as it isn’t included but worth it and also have change handy to use the toilets! They take any currency.

Nana, thanks a lot for make this day unique for our memories, your way to explain, your patience, your energy, and charisma are unique, once again thank you nana ♥️

very interesting tour with knowledgeable guide, seeing long tutankhamen was well worth the extra cost
