The sights are amazing and well worth the long drive. Our tour guide Mohamed was brilliant and very knowledgeable! Things to bare in mind: the car journey is over 4 hours with one toilet stop. The Valley of the Kings and Temple of Hetchepsut are quite arduous for people who are older or unfit and struggle with the heat, and they involve walking up hills and steps. The Optional Nile boat cruise is worth the extra money, rather than getting back onto the bus and driving to the next location. The restaurant was also lovely with a good selection of tasty food and puddings. It is a very long day but totally worth it!

The sightseeing was extraordinary and the guides were friendly and caring. Our guide was very well informed and that made the trip successful. What I did not appreciate was that we did not see the avenue of sphinxes although it was in the trip description when we booked. Also, we were taken to a alabaster factory which was not part of the tour and which was really not a good experience. About two hours before we were back at the hotel, the drivers asked/demanded tips. I found that unacceptable.
