My partner and I booked this trip for our holiday to Hurghada and were really impressed. We were picked up from the hotel around 4:45am by our guide Nana who stayed with us the whole day. Nana made our experience even better, giving us water through the day and giving us advice. Her English was faultless and knowledge of Egypt and Luxor was great - she was an amazing tour guide. The trip overall was amazing and really great value for money. Luxor, Karnak Temple, The Valley of the Kings etc were amazing and a must see when staying in Hurghada. Although it was a 5 hour journey there and back and a very long 17 hour day, it was really worth it to see these sights and I would definitely recommend it. If you struggle with heat I’d recommend going in cooler months such as earlier in the year.

Everything was perfect! Trip is a bit long, but we was traveling with mini bus and AC worked all the time, so it was pretty comfortable. Guides was really friendly, gave us a lof of interesting facts about Luxor! It's totally worth it and I'd recommened this trip to everyone it's really must to see it!

The trip was excellent, Nana our guide was so knowledgeable, friendly and honest! She is very active with strong experience about what she explained and what we visited! Drivers were so good and hospitality was wonderful! I highly recommend this trip for any one want to do one trip Luxor visit!

This was a long journey but very much worth it. The guides were great and very patient. They constantly provided us with water from place to place. Be prepared for a long ride there and back and bring plenty of sunscreen and a hat. It gets very hot in the summer. Worth the price.

Excellent trip. would highly recommend. the tour guide was very knowledgeable and had some great stories. Long day but so worth it.
