    Even before the trip communication from this company was excellent- with details of our pick up and trip - and even better the 4.15am pick up was exactly at that time - a rare thing in Egypt! The small bus was clean and air conditioned and the drivers were nice. We picked up our guide Nana in Luxor. I cannot express how amazing and knowledgeable Nana is. She was clear, precise and did not hurry us despite having a lot to fit into the day. My youngest is 10 years old and asked some quite random questions at Karnak - like why was there a mini mosque and church symbol in the grounds and Nana explained- nothing was too much trouble for her. I am so grateful she managed to get some Imodium for my teen who started with a poorly tummy and hour into the journey - and made sure he was comfy on the coach later in the day when he couldn’t go to Hatshepsuts temple. It was a really long day - we were downtown Hurghada but it was worth the 5 hours each way in my opinion - and even better in the opinion of my 10 year old and 14 year old. Best trip ever!

    Was a complete tour, the guide Mr. Mansour was very attentive and friendly. He explained very well the stories of each place he visited and answered all our questions. Lunch was delicious, the food is included in the package but not the drinks (as a recommendation ask first for the price of the drinks). We enjoyed our lunch with a beautiful view of the Nile.

    Our day was absolutely amazing, we want to thank you Mr. Mansour for made us have a great time in Luxor.

    Visited most that Luxor has to offer. Fantastic service overall, Yusuf the driver and Waleed the guide - 5*!
    We wish we found you earlier for Cairo, Aswan and Abu Simbel tours.
    We shall indeed recommend further.

    We had an amazing day! The valley of the kings and Karnak temple etc were bucket list sights and did not disappoint. The price overall was great value and our guide Laila was very friendly and knowledgeable and didn’t rush us along too much at all which was fantastic. Remember to take loads of £1/€1/$1 for toilets and tip the guide and drivers. Extras of Nile cruise and King Tuts Tomb were worth it 100% and cost about £10 each. Take the guides advice on how to deal with sellers etc. You can haggle the stone sellers down to a reasonable price but be prepared to be persistent. Ride to and from Luxor was comfortable and not too bad in the end and well worth it. Overall an incredible day and an unforgettable experience!

    Amazing experience made so simple and enjoyable by Mahmoud (driver) and LT (Egyptologist).
    Picked up on time, made you feel at ease, very friendly and helpful Mahmoud took us to all our destinations in comfort and pretty much to the front door of everywhere we were going! Lots of different places to visit, first stop for a cuppa and chat about the day so we were fully informed and not left guessing what we were doing then into the valley of the kings - three tombs are included to go inside and look, LT sat us down and asked about what we were interested in seeing and suggested some tombs - they were all amazing- absolutely breathtaking and having more knowledge about what you are about to look at just makes it a little more awe inducing!
    If you want to go to king tuts tomb you do need to pay extra for this as the entrance includes three tombs but not this one.
    Then off to the temple of Hatshepsut which was again amazing, then a stop to look at an alabaster shop where you aren’t pressured to buy anything - literally 5 minutes of your day and was nice to see how it’s hand made in the area and we managed to squeeze in a quick stop to look at the collosi of memnon before lunch which was really tasty - they do cater for veggies too.
    After lunch on to an optional boat trip of the Nile - additional charge but you only go there if you have chosen to add this into your trip - it was £10 each and I really enjoyed the still of the Nile!
    Our last trip was to Karnak temple as we added this in too and it was just phenomenal!
    Couldn’t fault the day - organised around our choices and at no point did we not know what was going on. Felt safe and had an absolutely fantastic day, thank you essential Egypt and especially Mahmoud and LT! X

    The trip really good from start to finish, a long day but worth it. The balloon ride was an amazing experience and worth the early start.
    Tour guide knowledgeable and gave you enough time on your own to investigate the different sites. Lunch was nice after a short trip across the Nile.
    It was definitely a trip I would recommend.

    We did a full day tour with Dr Mo including hot air balloon, valley of kings, Karnak temple, Luxor temple and a Felucca ride. Our guide was Khaled - an Egyptologist, who was the best guide we have had across our tours in Cairo, Aswan and now in Luxor. Very knowledgeable, not selling things you don’t want, quick to understand and adjust to what family wants, and kind natured. I highly recommend Khaled for your touring experience here.

    Best trip and tour guide ever !
    The trip to Luxor was so very well planned from Hurghada. The pickup was exactly on time and the trip covered all the major attractions in Luxor with an English speaking guide. Our guide - Yasser was so good providing us all details and history of each location. We were also provided with snacks and water throughout the trip, which is really important and considerate during high temperatures.

    Sam is a very knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide. Following us for 2 tours, he brought us to various beautiful temples in Luxor and Dendara. Using the symbols carved on the ancient walls, Sam told us the various meanings behind them in great detail and with much vigour. It was a joy listening to him share the many stories! Not only that, Sam was a funny and humorous guide, often interjecting jokes into his stories so that we would not be bored. He also gave excellent recommendations when it came to which extra tombs we should visit in the Valley of the Kings, allowing us to see tombs which were in excellent condition, with their colours intact in all their vibrance and beauty.

    Thank you Sam for sharing all your knowledge with us, it was truly a pleasure!

    We visited the Karnak temples with our guide and it was fantastic. We had the best guide of our entire Egypt trip. He was articulate, extremely well read on the topic and genuinely friendly. His attention to detail as well as his knack to know when we wanted to explore on our own was impeccable. Sadly, since he did not whatsapp me or kept semi stalking me to write a review, I did forget his name. In any case, please let that be a final reason to surely book your east bank trip here. Wonderful sights, wonderful tour guide. 5/5

    Unforgettable Family Adventure in Luxor! Review: Our family trip to Luxor was nothing short of spectacular, a perfect blend of adventure, education, and relaxation that left an indelible mark on our hearts. Traveling with children can be challenging, but Luxor proved to be a kid-friendly destination that catered to our every need, making it an enjoyable experience for both my 7 and 13 year-old. From the moment we arrived, the transport arrangements were seamless, ensuring a stress-free journey from start to finish. The vehicles were comfortable, well-maintained, and air-conditioned, which is a blessing in the Egyptian heat. Our drivers were punctual, courteous, and went above and beyond to accommodate our family, making every journey enjoyable and comfortable. The highlight of our trip, however, was our amazing guide. Knowledgeable, engaging, and incredibly patient with children, our guide brought the ancient history of Luxor to life in a way that was captivating for both ad

    Picked up at the arranged time by Ahmed. There were four of us in our group and had the minibus to ourselves. The bus was immaculate with wifi, phone chargers, tv, pillows, plants with snacks and drinks provided. Amhed gave a guided tour along the route pointing out places of intrest and explaining interesting Egyptian customs. We arrived at Luxor early before the crowds so we could enjoy Karnak without the crowds and be guided through the experience by Said who knew everything about the place. We then had a nice meal on the bank of the Nile. As a vegitarian I was well provided for. We paid extra for a boat trip aross the Nile which was an experience in itself as we were allowed to sit on the roof and take brilliant photos. We then took our minibus to the Valley of the Kings where we visited several tombs and finally onto Hatshepsut Temple. Said guided us through the whole experience explaining everything and answering our questions. Amhed then drove us back to Hurghada by 6pm. All in all a great day professionally driven by Ahmed and guided by Said.

    Amazing places we have visited. All Luxor's places we have visited are incredible. We would love to have much more time to visit with more calm.

    As 1 day trip you will visit the most important parts and be ready to hurry up as you don't have much time to spend around as you need to jump for the other point.

    For the price, its worth each penny I have spent.

    I would recommend to do in smaller groups, so you can have much more info from your guide.

    With a lot of joy, I can report this trip and our host were amazing. For people scared of being ripped off like me, or that they take you to certain places you dont want to go, that is not the case. The guide was kind, professional and knowledgeable, the locations were unreal. The food and the culture were fabulous. I have no problems saying five out of five. Safe, kind, and thoughtful, even the driver deserves a medal!

    Our tour guide was Ahmed and he was very sweet and professional. We had mentioned how it was our last day in Luxor and we didn’t get the chance to visit Karnak. So he offered to adjust our itinerary so that we could squeeze it in. It turned out to be great we absolutely loved visiting Karnak. I highly recommend booking!
