What people are saying about Luxor
Day trip to Luxor with Nana was the best! We started at the temple of Karnak, Nana was very informative, enthusiastic and had lots of fun and interesting facts making it easier her easy to learn from. We followed on to a short trip on the nile boat and stayed at the crocodile restaurant for lunch. We only had a small group do it was easier for us for breaks and chatting. We then visited the valley of the kings and entered several tombs including Ramesis and Tutankhamen which was one of the highlights of the tour. Nana was fantastic with her short stories, explaining the legends of ancient Egypt and how people thought and lived. Nana helped us understand the messages of hyroglphic so we knew how to identify the symbols and what this meant on the walls of the tombs which was very interesting. It was extremely hot but 100% worth it as this is a huge tick on the bucket list for a life list! We visited several.other historical sites and Nana rounded off the day with ice cream brilliant!
This was a long journey but definitely worth it. They picked us up at 5am and we got to Luxor at 10am. We first went to the Karnak temple and stayed for 1/2 hour. Then we went on the boat ride which was relaxing. We then had lunch and the food was amazing very authentic Egyptian food. The restaurant was in a village. After lunch we headed to valley of the kings. The views were insane. Also I would definitely recommend paying extra to see Tutankhamen tomb this was a beautiful tomb. Overall the whole trip was definitely worth it and unforgettable experience. The only problem I would say is the last stop which is after valley of the kings. They take you to a place where they pretend to show you that local people are making these amazing “ sculptures “ when really all these sculptures and souvenirs are down the market. Do not buy from this shop as we did and we realised after we got scammed as the items we bought there were 3xtimes higher than the original price. So please don’t buy.
Mohammed was our guide and was excellent. Highly recommend this tour, my wife and I had a great experience. We always had water provided to us on the bus and snacks provided between stops. Mohammed was very knowledgeable about the history of luxor/ valley of the kings and he was very insightful. We were very happy with our experience.
We had a fantastic time and our guide Nana was amazing, so knowledgeable and fun and helped us all on the trip have a fantastic day. We couldn’t recommend her and the drivers highly enough
The guide Ahmed was very well informed as to the egyptian mythology and history. this made the guide very much enjoyable. The bus tour was brand new with AC.
