It was a hot day, my tour guide Salma show me every temples in Luxor and shared her knowledge with me about history of every temple. I felt bad that she have to go with me all day under the heat. my air balloon ride was cancelled due to weather so I choose quad bike instead and the one who doing the quad bike are really nice and friendly. hope the tour should include the quad bike option also. The hotel in Luxor are horribe, no towels in the room, there stuffs from previous guests in the fridge..I hope they give us option to upgrade to better hotel. the flight they book for me so late so I arrived midnight in Luxor so cant tour around the area at night.

Overall the best part of our trip to Egypt! We looked at this and added it to our trip 3 days before we left for Egypt. Arwa was great in coordinating the flights from Cairo and ensuring we had rides everywhere! Our tour guide Hamdy was the best there is and our driver was safe and efficient! Advice; upgrade hotel stay. We booked a 4 star but it was more like a 3 star. So if you would like a 4 star book a 5 star! Nothing terribly wrong , just some advice. wear comfortable shoes as well! This tour is an amazing deal and we will have memories for a lifetime!!

I 100000% recommend this tour. EVERYTHING was worth it from start to finish. They were super attentive and communicative and I was the only person in the car with the guide and driver. My guide was Ramadan, honestly it was the best guide I've ever had. Incredible!

Incredibly special. One of the best experience of my life. The guide was amazing making the whole trip more attractive and interesting. Very recommended with the Hot Air balloon experience as well.

Excellent logistic!!! Thanks for the incredible experience.
