        Great Cairo experience
        We’ve just spent the best day in Cairo with Ahmed (driver) and Shrouk (the tour guide/all round angel) . We were picked up at 2am and headed straight to Cairo. The bus was very comfortable with cushions, water, snacks and a tv. We stopped a couple of times for toilet breaks which was great. Shrouk then took us to the museum and pointed out the most important things(she’s FULL of knowledge), then we stopped for a nice buffet lunch, and finally headed to Giza where she showed us around and took lots of photos for us. Ahmed then drove us back to Hurghada in record time. The kindest thing of all is that the group that we were supposed to travel with cancelled the trip and moved it to Monday. We couldn’t make it on Monday, so they (unaware by us) took us on the tour by ourselves anyway, even though they definitely could’ve cancelled on us. 10/10 experience, the loveliest driver and guide (in the photo with us <3).

        Such an amazing day!
        Amazing day trip. The tour guide (Shrouk) was amazing and so kind, so knowledgeable and attentive. And made us feel so welcome. The driver (Ahmed) was also very patient and a great comfortable driver. He was on time and the whole day was perfect. Thanks so much!

        Fabulous day in Luxor.
        We have just had the most fantastic day in Luxor. Our driver, Ahmed, doesn't hang about, and he made sure we were the first to arrive from Hurghada - giving us lots of information about the local area on our journey, in our very comfortable minivan. Our guide, Said, was very knowledgeable and ensured we were happy every step of the way - he always managed to keep us away from the crowds, and he gave us all the time we needed to take photos. The sites we visited were impressive, and we were left feeling we had really seen the real Egypt, away from our resort. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this trip.

        These guys are the best!
        This tour was from start to beginning an excellent experience. Though it was a long drive and a long day, i would recommend it to anyone. The drivers are just doing anything to make it as comfortable of a ride as possible. They hand out free water, snacks and even show movies on the trip. This makes the ride go by in no time. Additional to an awesome crew of drivers there is the guide who shows exactly why he’s been doing it for 33 years. Giving the most usefull and incite full historical facts and guides you all day through Caïro. Spend your money well and take the ramashka tour because you will not regret it!!

        BEST IRISH OPERATOR FOR SPORTS EVENTS.
        WHETHER YOU BUY A RUGBY, SOCCER OR GOLF PACKAGE FROM KILLESTER TRAVEL YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED. THEY ORGANIZE THE EVENTS WELL, SELECT GOOD HOTELS AND GOOD CHARTER AIRLINES LIKE THE RECENT JET 2 AIRLINE TO MARSEILLES. THE KILLESTER TEAM LOOKING AFTER YOU BEFORE, DURING AND AFTER THE EVENT ARE EFFICIENT, FRIENDLY AND IN GOOD NUMBERS. ALL IN ALL, AN EXCELLENT OUTFIT.

        Good tour
        Private bus with air conditioning, snacks and drinks provided. Ahmed the driver was great, even stopping to jump out and get us some raw sugar cane to try. Our tour guide Said was very knowledgeable. The sites were amazing. It may seem early but it’s worth it to avoid the masses of people that build up quickly. The only let down was the lunch. Food wasn’t great. Outside of that a very enjoyable day. Be prepared for lots of walking

        Fabulous! :)
        Amazing experience with Said and Ahmed. They timed everything perfectly so we managed to beat the crowds and allowed us to tailor the experience slightly so it was more convenient. Very accommodating with snacks and drinks on the journey, and the wifi made a world of difference.

        Definitely don’t miss out on doing this tour. Said was very informative and Ahmed was there to pick us on time everytime. It’s an early start at 4:40 but worth it as you’re there before the crowds. Nice, comfy mini van too. Thanks.

        Phenomenal day 😍
        Amazing day trip to Luxor with Ahmed, our driver & Said, our guide. There were only 4 of us on the tour which was a bonus. With Ahmed's help, we beat the crowds in Karnak getting there early. It was phenomenal. Said was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable. We then had lunch, a buffet which was good & took a short ride across the Nile to the Valley of the Kings. Again, fantastic place. Hatshepsut temple was next before Colossi of Memnon then a very fast drive back to Hughada!! Overall, I have to say we had a great day, in great company with a few laughs, highly recommended 😁

        Day trip to Luxor from Hurghada
        It’s a very small group, almost felt like a private tour. There were only 4 people in the group. The driver, Ahmed, got us in Luxor ahead of every one else. Very pleasant driver, well organised. Snacks and water are provider. Buffet lunch is also included. The English guide, Said, is very good and very knowledgeable. Will definitely recommend.

      We stayed in Hurghada and wanted to day trip to Luxor to see the famous sites. With so much uncertainty, COVID rules and regulations (and a fews days earlier having a different trip with a different company cancelled last minute) we weren't sure what to expect.

      However, I'm happy to say that Ahmed and his team run this tour like a well oiled machine. We did the private trip, in a modern air conditioned car which picked us directly from the hotel at 5am, taking us to Luxor and returning us at 9pm. A long day but totally worth it. We were kept informed and updated at all times by Ahmed over WhatsApp who responded quickly and clearly. He even met us at a stop point around 6:30am with drinks and snacks for the trip and was very safety conscious regarding masks, etc.

      We met our guide, Said in Luxor and I cannot rate him highly enough. He is knowledgable, patient and a great camera man too! The tours around the temples were incredible as was the trip up the nile (we paid a little extra for 40mins to go up the Nile). My wife is vegetarian and they even catered for her separately at the restaurant on the banks of the Nile.

      This tour takes you on all of the 'big hitters' Luxor has to offer in a day and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ramashka Tours again.

      Thanks again Ahmed, Said and Team

He and our drivers all did an amazing job of taking care of us and making sure we had everything we needed for an enjoyable experience at all of the sites as well as with the local shopping. Made for an amazing day, thank you!

      Fantastic experience. Would thoroughly recommend going for this Private Tour option.

      Ahmed turned up bang on time to pick us up; with a nicely decorated mini van which carried just me and my wife (as advertised. So It'll be e.g. just for the 5 of you if that is your group size); drives like a professional; provides great insights in to the cities that you pass along the way (like Safaga and Qena); and crucially, got us to Luxor when he said he would, way in advance of the crowds of tourists.

      As a result, we had a more enjoyable tour of the temple with our Egyptologist guide Said, so is so very knowledgeable about the history of the sights.

      Ahmed and Said coordinated the movement across sites with each other so that the whole experience was seamless for us and we didn't need to do anything except get out of the car, follow Said, enjoy a brilliant site tour and then return to the car park to find Ahmed waiting with our car... Smooth like a dream! All the sites mentioned in the tour before we booked were visit and we had adequate time at both. Throughout the tour, Said also provided extra tit-bits and useful information. A few extras were offered with NO pressure applied which we accepted, like the longer Nile cruise. They were well worth it... but honestly, the main itinerary itself is really fantastic so don't feel like they've organised something that you'll only enjoy if you pay for the extras. At the end of the day Ahmed got us back to our hotel by 19:30 as per his stated plan, even though we left Luxor a little later. All in all, a fantastic experience. Thank you Ahmed and Said.

      We did the private tour to Luxor after we did the private tour to Cairo last year. We had a great experience with Ahmet (Tourguide) to took very well care of us.
      The pick-up in Hurghada was at 4 am with a minibus (total group of 6 tourists) and arrived as the first tourists at the Karnak tempels around 8:30 am. The English speaking local Tourguide Mr Said has a huge knowledge of the history and is able to answer all questions.
      Afterwards we had lunch and did a river Nile tour (about 40 mins). Next sight was the valley of the kings where we visited 3 tombs and last cultural stop was the impressive Hatshepsut Tempel. We way back to Hurghada started at around 4:30 pm and we arrived at the hotel around 7:30 pm.
      The tour is highly recommend to couples or single tourists. The trip with children is also possible as there are frequent breaks, air conditioning,wifi and beverages available in the bus.
      We will definitely do an other trip with Ramashka and truly recommend all private tours (Cairo or Luxor) ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

      Excellent day in Luxor with a lot of effort put into making sure we beat the crowds and made the most of our time seeing the amazing sights by getting there as early as possible. Karnak was brilliant before the crowds arrived. Lunch was very good food with a great view of the Nile, Said was a very clear and knowledgeable guide, and Ahmed’s transport was very fast and comfortable always arriving immediately when needed him to. With lots of snacks and water available if needed. Many Thanks!

      A wonderful tour, our guide Said was lovely & so knowledgeable, we learned so much & had an amazing day seeing the sights. We were able to take in the sights at our own leisure & pace and we’re not rushed at any time to move on to the next spot.

      We have always been fascinated by Ancient Egypt so it was a dream come true to visit the Valley of the Kings

      We had a delicious lunch overlooking the Nile & Said arranged an amazing vegetarian option for us.

      Our driver was also great & the car was a very comfortable ride on somewhat bumpy roads

      All COVID safety regulations were followed, giving some peace of mind when travelling during this time

      I would 100% recommend this tour

      Probably the best tour I have been on. We took this private tour with 6 of us. Ahmed looked after us excellently all day. He did everything to make the day flow smoothly, which make the experience very relaxing. He surprised us with little extras during the day, such as a scarf each, that was a really nice touch. The restaurant for lunch served fresh and delicious food. I definitely recommend the optional private Nile river ride, 45 minutes sitting on a boat watching the world pass was very chill. The total trip was amazing value for money.
      Said was our guide in Luxor, he's been guiding for 21 years. His English was fluent and he was most informative. He really brought the sites to life.
      Overall this was the best tour of the holiday.

      We chose to visit temples in Louxor with Ramashka Tour in a private car and guide. It was a very good choice.
      Even if picking up time at 5:00 am is a bit of an effort, it’s really worth it!
      They are very professional, on time.
      A comfortable and very clean small bus is waiting for us!
      We left El Gouna with our friendly driver Ibrahim.
      Our guide Farid was waiting for us in Louxor.
      It was very pleasant to visit all those magnificent temples with him. Clear and good explanations. Thank you Farid!
      We did a lot in one day and we were completely satisfied.
      Don’t hesitate to choose Ramashka, you will not regret it!

      Ahmed was on time to pick us up at the resort and able to arrive at Luxor faster than other tour buses which was helpful for us to avoid the big crowds. We were the first bus arrived Luxor from Hurghada.

      Said was with us the entire day for the private guided tours, he explained the ancient histories clearly and he is very thorough. He also warned us to not buy things from the touristy shops which we appreciate that. It was overall very pleasant and splendid journey with both Ahmed and Said.

      The van is also comfortable, TV and WIFI are available, water and drinks were provided.

      Thanks for the great day Habibi! We will be taking the Cairo trip tomorrow with Ramashka Tours.

      Excellent all round trip to Luxor

      Our host/driver Ahmed confirmed the pick-up time of 5am with us the day before, we were picked up at our hotel reception and set off for Luxor in a nice air conditioned bus with free wifi and plenty of free drinks and snacks too! We arrived in Luxor at 9am which meant we were among the first tourists to arrive at Karnak temple. This enabled us to have our tour of the temple whilst it was still very quiet, before it got really busy, as it did when we were leaving.

      Our local tour guide, Said, was extremely knowledgeable! We met him at our first stop (Karnak temple), Said spoke very good English and explained everything in great detail, also allowing us time for any photos and/or questions - both of which we had plenty, one being how he’s somehow learnt the entire history of Egypt, to which he responded during his 4 years at Cairo University… makes sense.

      Ahmed collected us promptly from each stop on our trip, and always ensured we were drinking plenty of water in the sweltering heat! We returned to our hotel in Hurghada around 6pm just in time for dinner.

      I would definitely recommend this trip!
