We booked the trip for May 22nd. We were picked up ten minutes late. We were on the road for a good four and a half hours and the drivers really drove fast. We were at the Karnak Temple early where we met our guide Mohamed Baraka. He explained a few things about the history of the temple and then we were able to explore the temple on our own. Later we had a Nile trip that took us to the banana island. There you could see monkeys, chickens and a crocodile (in cages). On the way back we were able to eat fresh bananas and watermelon. Afterwards we were taken to a restaurant and there was a delicious buffet. Then we went to the Hatshepsut Temple. This was also very beautiful to look at. It was really very warm. It was good that there was enough water in the bus all day. There were also a few small snacks. The Valley of the Kings was the highlight of the day. Great guide and great day trip. Recommended.

Thank you and congratulations to Mohamed for the guided tour in English. Too bad we had the visit at the same time as a German-speaking group. Mohamed was obliged to make the explanations in English and German. This made them a little fast at times. Still, it was a great day with a great guide.

The trip was well organized, we were able to see a lot of things in one day, despite the fact that the road is long and bumpy. The tour guide was very good, he was able to give a lot of information, he spoke English well, he was very helpful during the trip.

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

it's was a from the beginning to the end nice trip , we had a nice german guide , we would do it again :-)
