I enjoyed this day tour very much. My guide Nana was very nice and very knowledgeable, explained everything in detail, showed me the best picture spots and also took pictures for me. It was definitely worth it to see all the archeological sites in one day, and it’s nice to have the van with air conditioning to go from one place to another, because it gets massively warm during the afternoon. The restaurant we had lunch with was also nice, it was nothing special, but it had air conditioning and the food was nice.

Great tour, everything very well organized! The first contact was via WhatsApp without any problems. We were picked up from our hotel on time in the morning and spent the day in a small group of 6 people. Our guide Assem was very friendly, was able to explain everything very well and was also able to bring us closer to the Egyptian mentality during the day. The tour is highly recommended!

The contact was straightforward from the start via Whatsapp. We were picked up from the hotel around 5:30 and were in Luxor around 10am. (2 stops on the way) We started at the temple of Karnak and would be welcomed there by our German-speaking guide (nobility). He was very motivated, accompanied and informed us all day. After the temple there was an additional Nile trip for lunch (200 LE / person for the boat trip). The food was ok. Then it went past the Colossi of Menmon into the Valley of the Kings. Here the guide showed us 3 breathtaking graves and explained everything to us (Ramses I, III, IX). Then we went to an "alabaster factory", which we perceived as a tourist rip-off. Finally we went to the temple of Hatshepsut, which was really breathtaking. After the temple the return journey began (around 5:30 p.m.) we were back at the hotel at 10:30 p.m. (1 stopover, but more would have been possible). Definitely worth the money!
