Omar was our captain and he tried his best to meet our needs. Not only guided us to multiple tour spots at both west&east bank, and kept checking if things are all good. And he is fluent in English so it’s easy to understand his explanation. He is kind and has a good omar. And regarding the balloon tour, Yousry was in charge. Out balloon flied much higer than others, so we could enjoy panoramic view of Luxor incl. the valley of kings. The landing was also soft and safe, whereas some balloons landed at silly poition. All process was smooth and had a lot if fun.

It was a perfectly organized trip. Everything happened in time and as planned, we also had sufficient time and didn’t felt rushed despite the intensive program. Definitely worth the trip. I want to especially thank Assem who was a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable and passionate about Egyptian culture, and also provided it in an entertaining way. Only point of criticism: the bus had a certain age and the seats had been a little bit small for seating 10 hours in it.

Jacky was the best guide we ever had. She told us everything what was need to know and beyond that point. Her English was very good and easy to understand. She showed us everything we needed to see. We had an amazing day in Luxor and we recommend her for everybody.

David was very knowledgeable in providing more context of each site, also like the flexibility in terms of arrangements. It’s an excellent tour, I’d highly recommend this for everyone visits Luxor!

BomBa👍🏻❤️ fleecier picked us up from the hotel on time, got us over quickly and was a lot of fun.
