Best trip of our week in Egypt! In total we’ve been on four different tours and this one was far and away the best! First of all I can really just hope for everyone who’s booking this tour that you get Nana as a guide. What a refreshing female character in this men ruled world! She was just amazing and knew how to entertain us and take care of us. We’ve learned a lot about the ancient Egyptian history and I still remember it! The way she guided us through the day was just absolutely amazing! And as a little treat there’s ice cream and crisps at the end of a hot day in all those impressive sites. You really couldn’t ask for more! We enjoyed this tour the most from all the things we’ve done in Egypt. Do yourself the favour and make yourself happy, you need to see this once in your life and with Nana on your side nothing can go wrong! Thank you for this absolutely unforgettable day!!

The trip was very well organized. Our tour guide Jou-Jou was very personable and had a great deal of knowledge about everything we saw. We have felt very comfortable. The only thing that could possibly be improved is the transfer itself. The minibus is sometimes very fast on the road with quick evasive movements. In addition, there are what feels like a thousand thresholds and the bad suspension shakes you up a lot. Overall, what you saw was worth the trip.

The excursion was interesting and worth seeing! The group was provided with water and snacks. Our guide and Egyptologist Assem was able to answer every question extensively and spoke good German. In any case, we recommend the boat trip across the Nile (11€ extra pp). All in all its a very very nice trip to Luxor.
