We booked a small group German-language tour and we’re lucky enough that it turned into a private tour. Our 6-person group included 2 kids under 6 and we really enjoyed our trip with Fayez. His German was very good, is an experienced guide, and ability to draw & story-tell really helped illustrate the historical importance of places we were visiting. I’d gladly take another trip with him! The highlight of the trip was the Valley of the Kings! Lunch was plentiful and tasty Some negatives: The several times we were put into an upsell situation (e.g. alabaster shop stop and Egyptian necklace purchase). I imagine most tours will have this and we could politely say no. Additionally, although we enjoyed lunch, drinks had to be paid for separately and at the tourist price….

My guide Ayman was exceptional and very well versed in the early Egyptian history. I learned much more from than I did in all my history classes in school. He took care of all my needs to include going out of the way for me to purchase more items and going off the beaten path to learn more history. I highly recommend this tour!

This was both an informative and pleasurable way to experience the temples of Luxor. Manal, our smart guide, patiently explained and customized our private tour. We were treated like new friends from the very beginning. We highly recommend Manal and Nice Tours for a 1-day feature packed excursion. We will be back.

The Valley of the Kings is amazing! Our guide Samar explained everything in detail and in an easy-to-understand way. He took lots of photos for us. The driver even let us charge our smartphones. The Egyptian lunch was delicious. I recommend everyone to go there.

Jackie was amazing. call her. good expérience. very nice.
