What to expect
  • Your tour begins with pickup from Safaga Port. Traveling in the comfort of a private vehicle, set out on the around 3-hour journey to Luxor, accompanied by a private Egyptologist guide. On arrival, start your tour on the West Bank, exploring the UNESCO-listed Valley of the Kings (Necropolis of Thebes), where the mountains are home to over 63 royal tombs, dating from the 2nd century BC. Venture inside to see some of the tombs and perhaps opt to visit the most famous of all — the tomb of Tutankhamen (extra cost). Continue exploring the surrounding archeological wonders, including the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut (Deir el Bahari), the Colossi of Memnon, and the Temple of Medinat Habu (Temple of Ramses III), before breaking for lunch. After a typical Egyptian-style lunch (included) served at an island restaurant in the middle of the Nile River, cross over to the modern city on the East bank of the river. First, take a tour of the Karnak Temples, a vast complex built between 2055 BC and 100 BC, where highlights include the Avenue of the Sphinxes, the Great Hypostyle Hall, and the Sacred Lake. Then, set sail aboard a traditional felucca boat, for a 30-minute cruise along the Nile — the perfect way to end your day. On return to Safaga, your tour ends with drop-off at the port in time for your cruise ship departure.

We were greeted at the train station by our guide Nermeen Nabil, immediately she was so friendly and kind to us. Nermeen is very knowledgeable about the monuments in Luxor as well as local history. Touring Luxor with her was a great experience that I would recommend to anyone! If you come to Luxor and find yourself with Nermeen as your guide, you can count yourself lucky. Thank you so much Nermeen, we had a wonderful time!!

We had an amazing day tour in Luxor with Nermeen! She is very friendly, gave us a lot of tips and answered all our questions! We (two friends) did a private tour and everything was great! It is a critical Covid-19 time but we felt very safe. Nermeen (tour guide) and Mustafa (driver) were wearing the mask properly at all times and we felt very cared for. I would definitely recommend the company and staff for anyone visiting Egypt :)

We did a private (2 person) day trip to Luxor with Egypt Tours Portal from our cruise ship when it was in in Safaga. The trip took 12 hours, which is normal for a day tour to/from Luxor from Safagah since it needs 3-3.5 hours each way. We were met at the ship, as promised, and transferred to our car. It was a medium size, comfortable saloon in clean condition. Our driver then took us to Luxor. The first two-thirds of the journey is on a dual carriageway, which was smooth and trouble-free despite a number of police checks. The last part of the journey is slightly more harrowing but our driver seems to know every turn and speed bump like the back of his hand and he delivered us safely to the West Bank of the Nil, where we were joined by our guide (Hassan), who accompanied us throughout the tour and arranged lunch.Our tour included the Colossi of Memnon, the Valley of the Kings (3 tombs), the Temple of Queen Hashepsut and Karnak Temple. We had lunch in a super local restaurant overlooking the Nile and crossed from West East banks on a private motor boat. Organisationally it all went perfectly. Hassan was knowledgable, had a nice temperament and explained things clearly in excellent English. Since there were only 2 of us we were able to set our own pace, beat the crowds and ask endless questions. We had plenty of time at each place and left Luxor in good time to get back to our cruise ship well before saying time. The tour operator (Ahmed Sameer) with whom we dealt by email to make the booking was very helpful and informative. A good thing about this company is that you pay only a deposit and then pay the balance on the day. Others on our ship paid other companies in full in advance but the company did not turn up. Overall the trip was excellent in content and value and we would have no hesitation in recommending the company

Right from the moment we left our hotel, the driver Ahmed Kamal, responsible for getting my family from the hotel to the airport at 5 am- made us feel at home (which is no small feat). From there- Miss Hemat showed us around Abu Simbel and walked us through a moment a breathtaking moment in time. The following day, we met with Mr. Mohamad in Luxor who gave us a once-in-a-lifetime experience in his city. He showed us all the key sights you can expect (Valley of the Kings, Hatchepsut, etc.) -- but the horse ride through the city was truly special. He ALSO had surprises set upthroughout the trip as well, such as a stop at a Sugarcane stand, or a gift shop with incredible limestone works. We left with memories of a lifetime and a deeper understanding of the rich tapestry that is Egyptian heritage and culture.

We are very experienced travelers and had the good fortune of booking our travel with Egypt Tours Portal via Viator. What made this trip special and memorable was the personal guide assigned, Mermeen was wonderful. We were at the Port of Safaga and without delay our driver for the day was there, ready to take us 3 hours to Luxor and later return us. Mermeen was extremely knowledgeable about the culture, the historic sites and the community. We couldn't stump her and she did everything with us, even fronted us a few Egyptian dollars to tip along the way, which we paid back, but it was nice the offered. She gave us options within the tour instead of like so many telling us where we were going, she asked if that interested us. Our trip to the various historic sites was topped off with a wonderful, authentic meal at the Aladdin restaurant on the Nile, which we could only get to via our own falooka (boat) and operator. If you have a day, a week or a month to learn and absorb Egypt, we highly recommend this tour company and you need to use Mermeen to truly make it a life long memory.
