An amazing trip, the ballon ride is the best and really suggest strongly to book but the hotel is the biggest disappointment to the trip. Suggest increasing the fee or having an option to include a better hotel. The tour guide was ok, Luxor has a lot of history but the highlight of the trip is the ballon ride

We had a wonderful experience from the trip that started when we were picked up at the hotel in Cairo until we got back. We were met by pleasant, skilled drivers and guides. Joining the hot air balloon ride was an incredibly wonderful experience, even for me who has a slight fear of heights. My legs were shaking and I felt a little nauseous before the balloon blew up. Up in the air, there was such a fantastic view and sunrise that all uneasy feelings before we got into the air disappeared. Everyone who worked here was calm, skilled and pleasant, and that gave security ahead of the experience. On the guided tour in the Valley of the Kings, the temple Hahetschup?? (Unsure of spelling and whether the name is completely correct), Karnak and Luxor temples, the guide was knowledgeable, pleasant and welcoming. She told the historical facts with empathy from that time. Pointed out and explained what many of the hieroglyphs and "drawings" on the walls meant. Well prepared and also too
