Our driver for both days Youssef was excellent. Our guide on the first day Emad was great. He was a little talkative but you couldn’t help but be caught up in his enthusiasm and obvious passion for his work. He was very knowledgeable. The only real criticism for this tour was the lack of planning on the tour company’s side. On the second day our tour finished at 2:30 but the flight wasn’t booked until 10pm. Got dropped at the airport but we’re told we couldn’t enter until 8pm. Managed to change our flight to 7:45pm for an extra EGP600 and informed Gamal the tour operator of this. He assured us the driver would be waiting for us in Cairo at 9pm when we landed instead of 11 as originally planned. Our flight was late and we got in at 9:30. No driver. Contacted Gamal and got drivers number. Driver had NO IDEA of the time change. Gamal had NOT told him despite 2hrs notice. Gamal tried to blame the driver. It took over an hour for a new driver to come. Got to the hotel at near 12am. Bed end

I don't know if I was lucky but it was a very exclusive tour. Just myself, the guide and the driver. The second day is full of visits, while the first is more driving time since Abu Simbel is far away, but can use the time for rest in the air conditiomed car. The guides were very nice and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.

This trip had serval bumps in the road so you definitely had to go with the flow but the headquarters fixed everything in a timely manner. Every guide we had was nice and knowledgeable. Ahmed Omar is the best out of all of them and he was in Luxor. Great way to see both cities if you are not doing a nile river cruise. They also arrange for us to go to the airport when we left Egypt and I will be forever greatful to them!!
