We took the private day tour from Hurghada to Luxor and everything went extremely smoothly from the first contact and reservation (via email) to the tour itself. We would like to thank our driver for the day and our guide (Mohamed Assan) for their support throughout the day.

We would like to however mention some points that are not imputable to the tour company nor to the guide - hence do not affect the rating - but are to be considered for any tour:
- be prepared for the Egyptian driving (in particular in the cities) and road conditions
- In all temples and tomb with visited there’s a part where the guide cannot accompany the visitors, to allow the people who work there to “provide insights about the place”, i.e. rip-off the tourists
- As with every tour, a stop is required in a shop to support the local economy...of course this includes long bargaining and push to buy more. This plus the above point make the whole experience slightly stressful for those not used to be wallets on legs

The beauty of the sites (special mention for the Karnak temples) make up for these points, as has done our Egyptologist guide, Mohamed Assan.

What an amazing day we’ve spent with Ayman the tour guide and our driver Hassan. Ayman was very knowledgable, kind and willing to respond our numerous questions.

Hassan took us for a safe drive from our hotel to Luxor and the whole service was excellent. Alvaro and Cristina.

We felt very fortunate to have a guide as deeply knowledgeable and accommodating as Mohammed. He helped us have an unforgettable experience in Luxor! It was also terrific to have a driver so that we could do more in less time. Even the restaurants (4 meals included) were unique & special- no buffets! Highly recommended.

Recent trip to Hurghada meant we could not go without a trip to Cairo and check out one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world.

Booked the private trip for two through email on the back of the reviews and website, paid deposit through PayPal and the rest in person. This was very reassuring!

We were picked up at our hotel at 4am, and flew to Cairo at 05.30 landing an hour later. EgyptAir were better than expected.

On arrival, Reham was waiting for us - the perfect tour guide and Egyptologist. She was very welcoming, warm and friendly despite it being Ramadan and very hot.

Reham and the private driver stayed with us the two days and showed us the crazy ways of Cairo. The city is mad and the driving.....an experience. Albeit we both felt very safe and comfortable.

Reham took us to see ancient tombs, the first Pyramid built, and then of course the Great Pyramid itself along with the other two. Her knowledge on Ancient Egypt was impressive.
We visited in the morning and thankfully there was very limited tourists.

We went inside the Great Pyramid and can say that was an experience we will never forget. Very much a highlight and a must. You’ll regret being in Giza and not going in. I won’t spoil it with more info.

We ate lunch at a typical Egyptian Restaurant and then of to our hotel in Cairo for the afternoon and night in Tahrir Square.

The next day Reham collected us from our hotel and took us to the Egyptian Museum. What a great few hours there. Many beautiful exhibits, including the contents of The Boy Kings tomb (Tutankhamen), his 11kg solid gold mask, his sarcophagus, and Rameses II mummy to name a few.

Again Reham being so knowledgeable and it being a private tour, we were shown the main artefacts. Brilliant this was.
Back to our hotel to check out and then a trip to the Khan El Khalili Bazaar (built 970 A.D) for some shopping and bartering!

Next lunch by the Nile and followed by a trip to Amr Ibn Alas Mosque (oldest Mosque built in Africa dating 642 A.D.), Hanging Church (built 3rd Century A.D.), and finally Ben Ezra Synagogue ( 4th Century A.D.).

This concluded our trip to Cairo and we were next taken to the airport for our flight back to Hurghada at 17.45.

Quick pointers - take plenty of cash and preferably small bills. Albeit the tour included all entrance fees and lunch/breakfast, hotel, when visiting sites there are always things to spend money on or tipping to be done to take photos. This is nothing to do with Egypt Tour Portals. We had around 2,000 Egyptian Pounds in cash and it just about covered it all.
Main extra cost was 300 per person for entering the Great Pyramid and again to see the mummies in the Museum.

Our trip was awesome and unforgettable and mainly due to the experience we had with Reham and the driver (can’t recall the spelling ).
Again, than you so much Reham and look forward to welcoming you to London
