Nana is an excellent guide, shared really interesting stories. We had free times to visit the sites for photos. Perfectly built up the whole day. Thank you, I learnt a lot :) The only negative are the drivers especially on the way home. we are all tired and they wait 15 min for their friend to be picked up and use us as a free taxi? then smoke break on the highway - at least stop with a toilet! omg i thought we never get home

It was an amazing trip! First the trip was cancelled because of the bad weather and the bad conditions on the road but we were able to reschedule the trip without a problem. We saw the Karnak temple, papyrus shop, crossed the Nile, visited The Valley of the Kings and Hatshepsut's temple. Our tour guide, Mohamed the first was very knowledgeable and he made the trip very interesting and fun. I would definitely recommend the tour!

The excursion fully met our expectations. In Luxor, our guide Mohamed B. came along and explained everything to us. Mohamed B. really had a well-founded answer to every question. Mohamed B. speaks German very well and is very personable and entertaining. It was a pleasure to be accompanied and cared for by him.
