The pick up at our hotel was very early (3:30) but once we arrived in Luxor it was definitely worth it! We visited all the important sights together with a guide who knew a lot. After a delicious dinner we went to the (neat!) hotel for a few hours of sleep. We were picked up again early but this time for a beautiful balloon ride at sunrise. Really amazing! After breakfast at the hotel we returned to Hurghada, the rest of the group had not booked the overnight stay and balloon flight, so we had a private ride back with our family.

It was a very long day and walking and visiting all of the sights was very hard but it was woth it. We had an excellent guide (SHIRA) who gave us so much inside information - just brilliant! In addition she was a very nice person. Also the manager on the tour back to Hurghada provided so much information about normal life in Egypt - it was great. And we learned a lot !! It was really appreciated!

Great organization. It ran like clockwork. Although we had to change the planned date, everything went according to plan. Our German-speaking guide accompanied us the whole time. Without further ado, we were the group "Crocodile". Our special requests were also immediately fulfilled.

This was a bucket list experience: absolutely breathtaking!! The hot air balloon pilot was very skilled and the landing was perfect. Our Egyptologist Mahmoud was very competent, polite and friendly! The best tour we had so far in Egypt!

It was a great organized tour with a perfect German and English speaking tour guide.
