Unsere Reiseführerin Nana (English) war super! Sie erzählte nebst vielen interessanten Fakten auch immer wieder Details zum Schmunzeln, so verging die Zeit im Flug. Die Nilfahrt fanden wir schön und man bekommt viel zu Sehen an dem Tag. Keine 5 Sterne gibt es wegen der Fahrt : Wir sind als letzte zugestiegen und der eine zugewiesene Sitz war über dem Rad - so konnte man nur mit angezogenen Beinen sitzen (ich) - mein Partner ist zudem ca. 1.92 und er hatte auch Mühe - erst nach der Pause konnten wir auf der hintersten Reihe sitzen (dort hat vorher der 2.Fahrer geschlafen) . Wir waren 14 Leute (nicht maximal 8 wie beschrieben) - dies war aber ok, da wir in 3 Gruppen eingeteilt waren (Deutsch, Engl., Franz.)

We really liked the tour, it was well planned with a full program. Our tour guide Mohammed was very friendly and helpful. He didn't also explain the monuments in the ancient city, but also told us a lot about demographics and social life in Egypt nowadays. The only minus point was the lunch -wasn't satisfying. Even though the journey was quite long, the bus was comfortable enough to sleep for a few hours and the drivers did their best.

The trip was AMAZING! Our guide Nana was great, she was very competent and gave us very interesting information at every stop on our trip. We got to see the Luxor temple, take a trip on the Nile (costs extra, but we got to lunch refreshed), visit The Valley of the Kings, see king Tut’s tomb (costs extra but for me also worth it), see the temple of Hatshepsut AND the colossus of Memnon. Despite the long list we never felt rushed and had plenty of time to look around and take photos. The alabaster shop was also great - a little pricey, but the show was great and we were happy to have a reminder of it. All in all, it was the best trip we took while in Egypt and definitely worth it! Tip: you can leave stuff on the bus, so take a neck pillow if you want to sleep. Extra info: pickup was on time, trip was much more comfortable than others and food was great AND in an air conditioned area.
