It was all worth it to see the most important sites during one day. Luxor is really worth it even under the spring heat! Our English tour guide Ahmed was very attentive and professional. He created a very comfortable and joyful atmosphere, always smiling and telling stories with passion! He was very organised and polite and helped to make the trip super smooth! Luxor is definitely one of the best things I have ever seen!

Very early start to a fantastic excursion. We found our guide very informative and personable and relaxed- perfect vibe for a rather busy schedule. The hotel was not expected at the end of the trip - for a quick shower and a couple hours rest before airport pick up again - but would choose a place of better quality as so many options in Luxor. Despite this, the overall day was good.

Really good experience, originally it was a group tour but it ended up being private...there was always a follow-up to organize the pick up, see details and needs, Mary's guide was extremely pleasant not only explaining the places to visit but also social issues which is always appreciated and greatly enriched when traveling to a foreign culture.

I would highly recommend this 5 day trip, it covers pretty much everything you need to see in Egypt and is organised so well by Ereen from Nice Tours. All of the tour guides on the way were super friendly and knowledgable and made our Egypt experience one to remember!

Very interesting experience, equally interesting company, a fantastic guide, nice, friendly and cheerful, as were the drivers! Highly recommended
