I travel to Luxor twice a year and my 'to do' list continues to expand, but at the top of my list is the star gazing evening. I have been on these evenings about four or five times now, but it alawys remains interesting. I love the feeling of being out in the desert, although it is only a short... More

Well worth the visit, we had an amazing time. With only 6 of us, we were treated to the best service and attention. The food was fantastic and lots of it. Thanks to Kris we have a better understanding of the sky at night which we continue to use now we are home and of course some great photos we... More

The great Stephen Hawking has implored us all to stop looking down at our feet, and to look up at the stars. And who am I to argue with the great professor? I took his advice and hitched-up on a star-gazing tour to Luxor desert. Guide Kris, Belgium’s answer to Brian Cox (without the hype), keeps it light and funny... More

Thank you very much for your nice review and for this complement. We do not consider ourselves to be like Professor Brian Cox, but he, Stephen Hawking, Sir Patrick Moor, and so many others, inspire us to share our passion Astronomy with everybody like they do. It was a great pleasure we could share it with you. More

I think I set my expectations too high, hence a slight feeling of disappointment. I booked direct rather then through my package tour rep. Mainly in the hope of getting a cheaper price. Unfortunately I was charged the same price of 400LE each and also had the trouble of making the arrangements. Kris is a great guy and guide and... More

Our evening was much as described in previous reviews. We really enjoyed it. Because tourism is so low in Luxor at the moment there was just the three of us so we went out with Kris to the desert in a taxi. That in itself was an interesting drive and we had a fascinating conversation with Kris on the edge... More

We booked this evening in advance, as a surprise for my mum's 70th birthday. We had a really unforgettable evening in the desert. Kris organised it perfect, we were picked up in the hotel, and after a 30 th minute drive, we were in the desert. The telescope was ready, but first we looked at the coulourfull sky and sunset....

De ondergaande zon bewonderen in de woestijn met zijn stilte, vergezichten is onvergetelijk. Nadien konden we de maan, planeet en sterren bewonderen door een telescoop. De uitleg erbij was zeer duidelijk en in het Nederlands gegeven. We werden vergast op thee en cake. Deze uitstap was echt de "kers op de taart" van de Egyptereis! De afspraken voor de trip... More
