          We had an amazing trip with Go Luxor!
          We had an incredible trip with our guides Mike and George!! Mike worked with us for a few months prior to our trip to organize a Nile cruise and a number of private tours from Aswan to Luxor. We really appreciated their flexibility in accommodating extra tours for us at the last minute and switching up the schedule to make sure we saw everything we were interested in. We were really glad we opted to do private tours, in some places we had the entire site to ourselves, which provided a really unique and incredible experience. Mike and George were both super knowledgeable and able to answer all our questions in detail. We also really appreciated that they helped us set up car transfers once our tour ended and we left for Cairo to meet friends. We had a once-in-lifetime trip and a great experience. We highly recommend Go Luxor!!

          Top notch experience
          We had a wonderful experience , Michael was very patient and helpful when I asked him many questions about the upcoming trip. He took the time to answer each one and guide us in the right way. He was also easy to be around and knowledgeable on the sightseeing tours. Thank you and I will recommend you to family and friends!

          What a Trip!
          Mike is just awesome at doing his tours!! Rest assure he will take care of everything for you and he is just a text away. I was a bit hesitant when I went to the web site and he asked to text over WhatsApp … it just made it easier to communicate. It was myself and a friend (2 ladies) and felt completely safe and cared for!!

          4 days / 3 nights Nile Cruise fantastic
          Fantastic guide, pretty transparent, incredible sights and all logistics handled very smoothly. Michael as a guide specifically takes great photos of couples haha... Learned so much and had an awesome time. Warning that some parts of the itinerary are not super transparent/clear at first. Wake up is at 5 am most days, and the first day of the Nile cruise is only one thing (Philae temple). That was fine with us because we were super tired, but a cruise is probably not what you want if you're looking for jam packed days. Definitely do the add-ons: Abu Simbel and hot air balloon in Luxor were amazing.

          Our Egyptian Adventure with Go Luxor Tours
          Our recent trip to Egypt, organized by Go Luxor Tours, was amazing! Mike Samir, our tour coordinator, planned an incredible itinerary just for us. He took care of everything from booking our flights to choosing hotels in convenient locations. We started our adventure in Cairo. Then we headed to Aswan followed by a 3-day cruise along the Nile River took us to Luxor, the highlight of our trip. Our guides, Francis in Cairo and George in Aswan & Luxor, made our journey even better with their knowledge and enthusiasm. At first, we were unsure about paying through Western Union, but Mike made everything easy and reliable. He quickly provided invoices and was easily reachable at all times. On the last day - one of our activities was canceled - he was prompt with the refunds - we didn't even have to follow up. Go Luxor team was the most professional and trustworthy companion for the trip.

          Wonderful 6 day tour of Aswan and Luxor
          We feel fortunate that Michael Samir with Go Luxor Tours was our guide and trip planner for six absolutely amazing days in Egypt. Michael put together an outstanding itinerary. Some of the highlights included touring awe-inspiring temples at Abu Simbel, Philae, Abydos, Kom Ombo, Edfu, and Luxor, exploring the tombs of the pharaohs (including Tutankhamun), sailing on a felucca on the Nile, and riding in a hot air balloon over the magnificent Valley of the Kings. The trip was seamless–Michael arranged our flights within Egypt and provided a comfortable air-conditioned van with a safe and courteous driver to whisk our group of three from site to site. Michael’s commentary brought the ancient sites alive–we learned so much about Egyptian history and the lives of the nobles, kings, and ordinary people through his wonderful stories. He is extremely knowledgeable, speaks excellent English, and was always accommodating, flexible, and fun. Michael had great practical advice about local customs and steered us toward excellent hotels and local cuisine. We have raved about our trip to our friends and hope that everyone can experience the wonderful time we had with Michael and Go Luxor Tours.

          Aswan/Luxor multi-day tour
          We recently enjoyed a marvelous multi-day tour of Aswan/Luxor/Abydos with Go Luxor Tours. This company specializes in private customized tours and Michael Samir was our personal guide. Starting months in advance, Michael helped us plan our trip ... then later guided us during our 6-day excursion. We were extremely happy with the itinerary and with Michael's guiding. He speaks fluent English and was easy to understand. We decided to do the trip by van (rather than Nile cruise ship) and loved the flexibility this afforded us. Michael has a wealth of knowledge about ancient Egypt, but also gave us excellent practical advice on where to eat, where to stay, and what activities to do. He was always flexible and accommodating and made sure that we were efficient with our time. For example, in the Valley of the Kings, he told us which tombs were the most important to visit and in which order to see them. Our driver was also superb. We could not have been more satisfied and give Michael and Go Luxor our highest 5-star rating! We will be recommending him to our friends and family.

          Private tour-Pyramids, Aswan, Luxor and Nile cruise
          We just returned from an amazing 8 day trip private tour organized by Go Luxor Tours! Mike Samir worked with us closely and patiently to plan the perfect itinerary for us. He helped with booking our domestic flight tickets, selecting good hotels that were conveniently located and took care of every single detail from the moment we were picked up at the airport till we were dropped off 8 days later. Everything was perfectly organized and the trip was customized to meet all our requests. Our trip started in Cairo visiting the pyramids at Giza and Dahshur & Saqqara, we then traveled to Aswan-where we visited the Philae temple, Abu Simbel and the Nubian Village. We the. embarked on a 3 day Nile cruise to Luxor, the highlight of our trip….we visited beautiful temples along the way. Our tour concluded in Luxor. We had amazing guides, Francis in Cairo and George in Aswan & Luxor. After reading some reviews on travel forums we had some safety concerns as 3 women traveling by ourselves, but we need not have worried… we felt safe at all times, the Egyptian people were very warm and friendly. This will remain one of my favorite vacations! Thank you Go Luxor Tours 🇪🇬

          Luxor Tour/Nile Cruise
          The time and travels through upper Egypt were truly amazing. Cruising the Nile River to learn about Luxor and other remarkable locations was worth the money. Our travel guide, Michael Samir provided a great experience by sharing his knowledge and historical elements of the area. Michael’s guidance greatly added to an enjoyable and entertaining experience. I’m already looking forward to returning in the near future.

          Traveling Egypt with Go Luxor
          I did a week long guided tour with Go Luxor. I started in Cairo then on to Luxor and Aswan and back to Cairo. I spent time with three different guides all with Go Luxor. They arranged transportation, site tours and several cultural stops. I felt safe as a female solo traveler. I saw amazing sites and had many wonderful discussions. A once in a lifetime trip.

        Our tour to Alexandria was on the last day of our Egypt trip, and it was amazing! We loved seeing the catacombs and the lunch was delicious with a great view (fish since we were on the Mediterranean). We loved loved loved the library of Alexandria! It was so cool to see and I really enjoyed hearing about how it was designed to be open yet still muffled and not loud. The museums in the library were interesting as well. It was a great experience! Our guide, Francis, was very knowledgable and we had a fun time with him on our tours.

        Go Luxor Tours review - Alexandria:
        I did the day trip to Alexandria, booked it through Viator. And I was so grateful it was this company: Go Luxor Tours!! It was the best experience hands down! Compared with 3 others companies I used. Had I known how amazing this Go Luxor Tours was, I would have used them for all of my tours. In fact I cancelled one tour to request this tour company and guide. My initial contact was with Michael Samir, and he is so organized and communicated very well. Another tour company contacted me to move another booked excursion which affected my booked Alexandria trip. I contacted Michael at Go Luxor Tours and he was able to assist me to move this Alexandria tour to another date. Excellent customer service and very personable! Also, Michael emailed me to confirm and notify me the name of my tour guide: Francis. This is very helpful and just nice knowing the details. Haha, in fact he even double confirmed the tour! Super organized, and you can truly ask him anything!
        My Alexandria tour guide was Francis! And words can’t begin to express how knowledgeable, kind, and welcoming he is! I felt right at home on a tour away from home. He explained everything and answered all my questions. Francis is so passionate about Egyptian history! (For those that need WiFi... it was available on the excursion). He even shared his coffee and bread with me. Even when we were walking in uneven places he watched to make sure I was ok, and wouldn’t fall. Oh my goodness, and pictures... lol Francis has so many great ideas of taking pictures and took so many of me too! I’m definitely coming back to Egypt... and I will only be using Go Luxor Tours! And if possible... I want to be connected to Francis... for all my tours!! :)
