I enjoyed this day tour very much. My guide Nana was very nice and very knowledgeable, explained everything in detail, showed me the best picture spots and also took pictures for me. It was definitely worth it to see all the archeological sites in one day, and it’s nice to have the van with air conditioning to go from one place to another, because it gets massively warm during the afternoon. The restaurant we had lunch with was also nice, it was nothing special, but it had air conditioning and the food was nice.

Very nice excursion. Long journey, by minivan, but without worry. Welcomed by Shadia our French speaking guide in Luxor. She accompanies us all day long with her explanations (very good French) on Egyptian and Pharaonic history. Visit of the temple of Karnak then walk on the Nile (10 € / pers) which allows us to reach the other bank. Pleasant ride that allows you to avoid the van trip and enjoy the history of the Nile. The "crocodile" restaurant is clean and the dishes are varied (drinks extra). Visit of the Valley of the Kings with 3 tombs then we took the tomb of Tutankhamun (in addition) to see his mummy and his sarcophagus. Then visit the temple of Hatshepsut and photos of the Colossi of Memnon. Stop in a pottery store (no obligation to buy but we are offered drinks and amenities so difficult to come out empty-handed). Hassle-free return (around 9 p.m. to Makadibay). 2 bottles of water offered by our guides (but provide).

Our tour with Muhammad was amazing. We were thankful to recieve such a knowledgable, friendly, and perosnalbe tour guide to help explain all of the wonders in the Valley of the Kings and Luxor. Althought we enjoyed our trip one day simple was not enough and we are excited to come back and see more. When we do we will be sure to book this tour operator again because the service was the best we received in Egypt.
