The trip is good, but there are several nuances: The description does not say which tombs are included in the program. As a result, we ran around looking for an ATM in Luxor to withdraw cash and buy additional tickets to the Seti I tomb (the most beautiful of all). The second nuance is lunch, it was a nightmare. The tour is individual, but we were brought to some creepy streaming place where they take all the tourists and feed me food that I would not eat, the plates were dirty, everyone was walking around and shouting something, in the end, we refused lunch and from some other alternative offered and went to the hotel, buying snacks on the way.

The driver was very punctual at the hotel reception at 5 a.m. He was a very good driver, knowing every details of the road by head. We felt very safe with him during the whole trip. The local guide, Mohammed, was a fantastic guide, well prepared, with a huge lexical knowledge. We learned a lot from him about the history, hieroglyph writing. We always had a lot of time at all location, stops.

Awake early, but it was worth it. Picked up by a private driver in a relaxed car with air conditioning. Upon arrival at Karnak our Egyptian, English speaking guide Mohammed (sorry I forgot your last name) was already waiting for us. Unbelievable how much knowledge he has about the cultural and social aspects of his ancestors. Tirelessly telling, explaining and telling even more. From here to a papyrus shop, then a boat on the Nile, lunch, the tombs in the Valley of the Kings an alabaster shop, the temple of Hatshepsut. What a great trip!
