          King Tut 1 - definitely not a 5* cruise ship
          King Tut 1 is a very tired cruise ship on the Nile. Advertised as 5*, but would be difficult to rate as a 3*. Cabins comfortable but in need of upgrade as were the bathrooms. Food ok, but very rarely hot. Staff very good and helpful. Afternoon tea served when sailing, consisted of very thinly sliced cake and plain biscuits. Bath towels not much bigger than hand towels and very thin and grey. Our Egyptologist and guide was excellent. The trips were good but felt very rushed. We spent nearly 5 hours each way on a coach to Abu Simbel only to have less than 2 hours there. All in all I would suggest paying a bit more to get a better standard

          Best tour guide I've ever had!
          My wife and I spent 3 full days touring Luxor and a day in Aswan and a day to/from Abu Simbel with Egypt Best Vacation. Our guide was Nagla who is also the owner of Egypt Best Vacation. I have traveled around the world and have taken many tours. Nagla is the best guide I have ever had. She is a former Archeologist, teacher and speaker several languages. From the moment she picked us up we knew we were in good hands. The car looked new and the driver was very nice. He kept the car a comfortable temperature and always had cold water available. Nagla took us everywhere. She has a natural ability to explain history in a fun and engaging way. She shared her knowledge in a way that was easy to understand and remember. Some of the chambers were a little dark. But that wasn't a problem becasue Nagla had a laser pointer so we didn't miss a thing. Another reason Nagla is so good is because she loves being a tour guide and is passionate about Egyptian history. Everything she told us felt genuine, exciting and fresh although I'm sure she's said it all a thousand times before. The day we went to Hatshepsut Temple Nagla picked us up very early so we would avoid the large crowds. I'm glad she did because there were maybe 20 other people there while we were. As we were leaving several large busses filled with tourists arrived. Nagla timed everything (as much as possible) so we were always ahead of the large crowds. I highly recommend Egypt Best Vacation. There are 2 other tour companies with similar names. One has an (s) at the end of Egypt and one has an (s) at the end of Vacation. So be careful to chose "Egypt Best Vacation".

          Horrible experience, reserved with Viator and all time trying to get extra money and cheating us.
          We made a reservation to visit valley of kings, they should pick us up from airport at 9:00, however they arrived one hour late, they also made us go out of the airport walking, when other tours pick people up from inside. The tour was simple and basic, and at the end they asked a crazy extra amount of money to leave us in the next temple. They wanted 40 extra USD$ for a trip of less than 5 minutes from Colossus of Memnon to Temple of Hatshepsut, and if we wanted extend the tour 60$ for every extra place. He did not offer us any water. In conclusion, they arrive late, minimal tour and treating to cheat us all the time. Guide name for Spanish was Sayed.

          The best guide in Luxor
          I recently visited the luxur and the Valley of the kings, at the entrance before the tickets a very kind gentleman approached me and in fluent English asked me if I needed an Egyptian guide. Because I do not know much about Egyptian culture I said to trust him and in the end it was the best thing I did in my whole trip to Egypt. It is probably the best guide I have ever had because he really did not try to make money from me but to help me and teach me as much as he can about Egyptian culture. His name is Mike Atty and I highly recommend him to all of you because I do not think you can find a better guide to Luxor. I take the courage to publish his phone because it is really worth a tour with Mike. Mike thank you very much for such nice stories and for so many nice conversations we had I will see you again soon. Tel.MIKE ATTY +201006344684 Kyriazidis Michel 1/8/2021

          Amazing days in Egypt
          i had been with my family 4 Persons last November 2019, we had a fantastic time. Nagla was very well prepared. She and her team had done a very professional tour from Hurghada to Luxor where we saw the vally of the kings, Deir-Elsheluiet, Habu Temple and last but not least Karnak and Luxor which where for us the highlight of our tour. For sure our next trip to Egypt will be with Naglaa again, and we recommend her100 % , if you aim to see the real Egypt. Children Programm was also fascinating, on this way we thank you very much

          Excellent company and great tour guide
          I did not have any troubles on the trip and the mobility was very easy and comfortable. The restaurants were great and the prices were very good compared to other places. Finally, the tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly with the whole group, and I hope to repeat the trip again with Egypt Best Vacation.

          Best guide I've ever had!
          In 2019 I realized my lifelong dream of exploring the pyramids, temples and tombs of ancient Egypt. Most of my guides were good but my guide in Luxor was amazing! Nagla is an Egyptologist and a guide who loves her job and it shows! I spent two days with her in Luxor and she took my experience to another level. Her presentations were fun, informative, fascinating and, easy to follow She even taught me a few things about reading hieroglyphics! Each day we covered a lot of territory, but I never felt rushed. At the beginning of each day she asked me what I wanted to see and if there was anything I didn’t want to see. At each site Nagla encouraged me to ask questions (after her presentation LOL) and, gave me time to explore on my own. One thing I appreciated was the laser pointer she used. The light in some of the temples and tombs was a little dim and the some of the hieroglyphics and carvings were faded and/or worn. The laser pointer made it easy to follow what she was talking about. The drivers Nagla used were friendly and professional. Their cars were new, clean and comfortable with USB ports you could use to charge your device if needed. Each time we returned to the car after visiting a site the driver had the car nice and cool with the AC and plenty of cold water waiting for us. Nice! Nagla is an exceptional guide and a genuine person. She takes pride and pleasure in what she does. I always felt her main concern was that I had a great experience. I should also mention she’s fluent in English, German and Arabic. Thanks for everything Nagla, you’re the best! Mark

          Awesome Nile Cruise
          We were so fortunate to have been assigned Mona as our Egyptologist tour guide when we joined our Nile Cruise on the Oberoi Philae. From the first boat tour around Elephant Island in Aswan, to gazing into the Osirian Temple in Abydos, Mona provided professional, knowledgeable insight into the ancient Egyptian people and culture. Mona also helped us shop and get fitted for a traditional Egyptian galabeya. She helped us give out candy treats to the Egyptian children whom she loved. Mona’s sense of humor and kindness made our time with her very special and enjoyable. Mona started out as professional tour guide and quickly became a friend that we continue to keep in touch with. We highly recommend Mona as a proud ambassador of Egypt.

          When in Egypt...go with the best!
          This trip was far beyond amazing and it was mostly due to our guide Mona! She was an awesome tour guide and very knowledgeable of the history behind all the places we visited. Our trip started with a 4night cruise down the Nile from Aswan to Luxor. Mona met us at our hotel and stayed with us for the entire trip! I would highly recommend using her as a tour guide when you visit the Aswan or Luxor area!

          Excellent and Fun Tour
          This is an excellent and fun day tour that covers the temples and major landmarks on the east and west sides of the Nile River. My tour guide Nagala was an excellent guide that explained the history and significance of each site we visited. She kept the tour fun and exciting while keeping the tour moving and affording enough time to take pictures and roam around each site. The tour also included a delicious local lunch. If you are visiting Luxor while in Egypt I highly recommend this tour.

        My tour in Luxor was fantastic. Nagla was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. I learned so much on this tour. Since this is private tour, you can adjust it to your needs...just let your guide know what you want. I recommend this tour if you prefer a private tour rather than a bus filled with people! Muchas gracias, Nagla!
