          Great tour & amazing guide!
          Ahmad, our guide, was really nice. He gave us many information in an interesting way - history lessons with him are so much fun! He put much effort into answering all our questions. He has a lot of knowledge and he is very kind. You could feel how passionate he is about the ancient Egyptian civilization and his work. We had an amazing day thanks to him! We also had a good and kind driver. We are really grateful to them. With the agency we are a bit conflicted. We booked a private tour and they wanted to put us with another couple. We had to complain about that in order for this to not happen. The tour started in West Bank, and they wanted to charge extra for bringing us back at the end, So we just said to leave us in the east bank. (Understandable, since it's a long drive, but this was not explained) The agency (and all agencies) charge 10$ per person for every entry in the tombs that are not included in the main ticket in Valley of the Kings. The problem was that we were again not informed before and our guide had to explain that to us. In the end the experience was really good thanks to Ahmad. I think that if the agency was more informative about the tickets and the other details it would be 5/5.

          Attacked by the video man for trying to not be in the shot
          Booked through a company that organized my luxor tour. Mixed feelings. Mirna (company rep) missed out some details like the fact that this was not the sunrise baloon ride,which I wanted. Was picked up on time,but they waited quite long first for other pasangers arriving from the East bank, then for the baloon. The baloon did not arrive at the spot before we spent around 20-30 minutes on the landing site. In fact people who arrived later had boarder before us. The absolute worst part of the experience was the camera man who attacked me for trying to not be in the shot. He verbually abused me and screamed that I am trying to ruin him,while I just tried to avoid being in the shot. The baloon crew was nice, flight itself was very boring though, but the landing was in the same placd and perfectly executed. Expect to give tip at the end. On the plus side, I managed go get to my bus on time,but due to many delays I was under significant stress the whole time because I was not sure they will get me to the bus station on time, despite arranging it days before. All in all, I would recommend you to book this experience somewhere else. This was certainly not a VIP experience. I also need to add that I was not planning to write this review,but Mirna pressured me several times on Whatsaps to lrsve it, so here it is.

          Must have tour in Luxor!
          First I was assisted by the very friendly Manager Mirna to arrange my pick up at the hotel. From then on, I had a personal driver for the whole day and especially my well educated and kind hearted Tourguide named Asma Sabar made the tour very unique. We visited the most beautiful and ancient places like Valley of Kings, Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple and many more. Asme was so well informed about those places, that it has been fascinating the whole time. At lunch time we went to eat at a really tasty buffet which was included as well! I really hope I can redo the tour again at some point as there are so many more pictures to take! 5 out of 5 stars, thank you so much :)

          Ahmed was an amazing tour guide! He spoke with a lot of passion about the history of Egypt. He took great care of us and we enjoyed every minute. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone.

          It was a perfect trip. It was cheaper than anywhere else and had great content. They responded to my requests and provided perfect support. Also, Mirna contacted me every day and I was able to travel with peace of mind. This is something I highly recommend. In addition to this cruise tour, we also handle other matters. 完璧な旅行でした。どこよりも安くて内容も充実していました。私の要望に応えていただき、完璧なサポートをしていただきました。また、Mirnaさんは毎日連絡をくれたので、安心して旅行することができました。とてもお勧めです。

          Smooth and hassle-free tour
          I used this operator for the half-day trip to the Suez Canal with lunch. Mirna was very helpful in organizing the logistics and coordinating with the driver. The driver himself, Eslam, was kind and gracious, and had excellent social skills. He had limited proficiency in English, but used Google Translate for effective communication. Overall, an excellent trip to the iconic Suez Canal, a delicious lunch of fresh and tasty seafood, and a pleasant drive in delightful company.

          Wonderful
          Sadly we weren’t able to go up before sunrise due to the regulation. But it was still a fantastic experience to have a bird view of Luxor. The communication with Mirna was very smooth!

        Very poor! Go to an island no more than 600m from the port area, see some animals locked I'm cages, get to eat a banana and then take you back. Couldn't speak English so couldn't about the banana growing process etc.

        Lots of amazing wildlife, birds, fish etc but the tour operator knew nothing about them.

        Don't waste your time and see something that is authentic like one of the temples with a guide.

        We reserved at the last minute, within minutes the company sent me a message to arrange pick up. Driver picked us up promptly. Our guide Abd El Hady welcomed us and quickly started our ride thru the Nile. He was very informative and hospitable. He took us to Banana Island and walked us thru the plantation, bananas, onions, orange and mango trees, cotton, great experience. We also saw crocodiles, monkeys, wolves and turtles. Abd El Hady was very hospitable.

        It was an amazing experience. The calm water of the Nile River, relaxing on Felucca and admiring the scenery along the banks of Luxor. At the same time, starring at the old houses, watching the villagers working in farms, domesticated animals roaming free, we felt as if we travelled back to ancient Egypt. When we arrived at the banana island we walked through a banana field and interacted with local wildlife. During the return, a member of the boat staff bought us bananas to take with us and try. It was a wonderful day organised by Mirna and I would highly recommend it. Thank you very much.
