        Incredible Experience
        We booked this tour in 2023 and travelled in June 2024. We were picked up promptly in Cairo at 7am by Awad, who was friendly and drove sensibly. We had an entire minibus to ourselves for the 4 hour journey from Cairo to Bahariya. Here, we met with our guides Ashraf and Mahmoud, who took us to the black desert, crystal mountain and white desert. We also stopped off at an oasis town for a delicious lunch where we had the opportunity to take a dip in a hot spring. Ashraf was very knowledgeable about the area, had perfect English and made an effort to get to know us and make us feel at ease. We set up camp in the white desert in the evening and were provided with another tasty meal before watching the sunset and admiring the beautiful night sky. Ashraf and Mahmoud stayed close by during the overnight stay and their familiarity with the desert made us feel safe, whilst also allowing us some space to ourselves and independence to explore the area a little. We would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to spend some time off the beaten track in Egypt. Many thanks to Ashraf and Mahmoud for being excellent guides and facilitating this memorable experience.

        Exciting tour to Luxor
        Hoda showed us the best sides of all the important sights in Luxor in a short time. We were immediately impressed by her upbeat and funny manner. She is very knowledgeable and answered all our questions courteously. The local lunch she organized in the old center of Luxor was excellent. The short trip on the Nile was an excellent idea from Hoda. We will definitely come back to Luxor and are already looking forward to going on another tour of the ancient sites of Luxor with Hoda. Many thanks to Hoda and her team. Carmen and Beat

        Day trip from Hurghada to Abu Dabbab
        Wonderful day trip. Nice road all the way. Friendly staff. Lovely beach with good facilities. Amazing green turtles feeding in the bay. On the left side, one of the most beautiful coral reefs I have seen in Egypt. And to top it off, successful boat trip to view a dugong from up close. Thanks for an amazing experience.

        Fantastic desert experience
        Amazing 3 day tour to the White desert, the Black desert, Agabat valley and Djara cave with camping in the desert. I had two great guides, Mohamed and Ahmed, and all was perfectly organized by them. There is so much to see there and its definitely worth going there for 3 days.

        Great expert, awesome experience.
        We took a "day trip with everything on it" as a private tour from Hurghada to Luxor, including also Dendera as an add-on. It was a long, tough day, simply due to how much we wanted to see in a single day which was all we had. Our drivers were cheerful and attentive and navigated the Egyptian traffic with ease. Our guide was a real expert, focused on providing the best informative experience - he gave a lot of background information for orientation and explanation, and also emphasized and repeated the most crucial points. He kept us on track timetable-wise, setting a brisk pace so we wouldn't have to skip any parts of our tour. He also took group pictures of us at the best spots! Our group booked a custom tour that was physically quite demanding. We're four people over 50 in reasonable physical shape, but we were quite exhausted at the end. Especially the scorching midday in the Valley of the Kings and the Hatshepsut temple were challenging. If you book a tour like this, make sure your body can handle it, bring plenty of water and sunblock and wear a hat or a scarf. The ready-made tours are less gruelling :)

        Private visit in Wadi El Gemal
        We had a private trip to Wadi al Gemal. Communication with the office via Whats app, and email, reservation was perfect. The driver/guide was on time. Exactly tell us were we are going and what is a plan. Our adventure starts with snurking in Abo Ghosoun. We have enough time to spend nice time in water and having sun bath. Second stop was El Qulan. This was the place where we can swim, walk in the water to Mangroves forest. Ww saw small village and we had an opportunity to buy some hand made bracelets and necklaces. We had a lunch and then go to the desert. We saw different valleys, prepare coffee under the tree. On the desert the guide show us how to find source of water, herbs for diseases. We gathered wood for fire ale prepare dinner. During that time we heard stories about Beduin lives, Egiptian history. Truly recommended the guide and your office. It was a lovely time.

        It was a wonderful experience
        It was well organised trip from picking us from home and bringing us back. It would have been more difficult to do with two kids. These places are must seen! I also recommend to take the additional tour in Luxor to banana island with Ahmet and seeing the sunset on the Nile. Aswan was very interesting tour with Ali guide, very knowledgeable person. If you visit Nubian village I recommend to buy tea there, very good quality.

        A Day we'll Never Forget
        Collected from our hotel in Soma Bay at 5:30 as arranged. Mohammed was our driver, we called him Lewis Hamilton as he was fast but we never felt unsafe. He got us there quickly and was always waiting when it was time to move on. Our guide was Mansour (Mannie) whose English was excellent and his enthusiasm great. We asked many questions and he knew the answers, explaining things clearly and obviously loved that we wanted to know more of his culture. Karnak was amazing, Valley of the Kings mind blowing! We paid extra to visit Seti I's tomb- very expensive but we were the only ones in it and it was beautiful. Food (included) was delicious, much better than I expected. Back to the hotel for 7:30, a day to remember, and what a great price! Remember to take plenty of money (we took USD) for tips

        Cairo Day trip from Hurghada by Flight
        Cairo Day trip from Hurghada by Flight. Waking up at 5am was not the best start but we loved the pyramids of Giza. And our tour guide was very friendly, good level of English and knowledge of the city. We had a lot of fun. The only down side is time management. I think even one day is too much for the city.

        The perfect experience
        We had an absolutely amazing day trip to Luxor organised with this private tour company. Our agent Amal stayed in touch and made sure to check in on us before the tour with times etc. Our driver for the day was Sayed, he arrived promptly, drove safely all day and maintained conversation. Our tour guide who met us in Luxor was Hami. Very knowlegable and helped us with the hassle of sellers. I cannot recommend this tour company enough. I will be returning with family but will only use this tour company again, if possible the same driver and tour guide. Thank you for making our trip so wonderful.

        Not value for money
        Our tour guide was very nice but a bit inexperienced, and not an egyptologist as we had requested, the whole tour lasted 3 hours including car time from/to Cairo so the overall experience felt way overpriced (70$ for 2 people)

      We drove from El Gouna to Luxor on day 1 and met our guide Hoda. She was very informative and she showed us first the temple of Karnak and then later after lunch the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Hatshepsut. We went for lunch in a place on the west bank that served authentic delicious Egyptian food. Hoda was able to get our tickets at the temple of Karnak very quickly and we beat the queues. It was just me and my husband on the trip and we enjoyed the fact that it was such a private tour.

      We stayed in the Lotus Hotel that night. It wasn't great but we knew that it was a cheap hotel and that we were only staying there a few hours - the day 2 start was 4.30am! We had the option to upgrade to the Steigenberger for 40€, which you should take if you want more luxury. We had the evening to ourselves in Luxor and we walked along the Nile and also saw the Luxor temple lit up at night.

      On day 2 we were picked up early and taken to Luxor airport for our flight to Cairo. Egyptair is a great airline and the flight was comfortable and punctual. We met our new guide Reham and driver at 7.30am and they took us for a nice breakfast of falafel and and then we saw the pyramids and the sphinx! Such an amazing experience. Reham has a degree in Egyptology. She is a lovely gentle person and her English is impeccable. There was a good balance between providing information and then letting us take time to explore on our own. We paid extra to go inside the Great Pyramid, which is not for people suffering from claustrophobia, but we enjoyed the sense of adventure! Reham knew the best places to go for photos and took many pics of us. We went for another tasty lunch and then to the Cairo Museum. Reham accompanied us around and showed us the highlights and she really brought the museum to life for us. A particular highlight was the Tutankahmun exhibition. It is really stunning. We also went to the bazaar after this and the official tour finished at around 4.30.
      We paid extra to attend the sound and light show. This is 19 dollars, and we recommend paying that yourself if you want to go. It was a bit old fashioned but entertaining. Plus the flight wasn't until 22.40, so you need to fill your evening somehow, and it's dark early.
      We got our flight back to Hurghada that night with no problem and we were dropped to the door of our hotel in El Gouna.

      One improvement:

      We took a canal cruise on the Nile in Luxor for 15 euro each extra. We were told that the bridge option by car would take an hour extra and so it was presented as essential/highly desirable. You should include this in the package from the start - nobody likes having to pay for hidden extras.
