We chose the bus trip, They arrived on time for us at the hotel in Giza and from there they took us to the bus terminal, the person who picked us up was very attentive I even told him that he was going to go down x snacks for the Camino and he got off With me to pay and not be overcharged, hence we took the Truck in which we were given headphones and a packet of food and snacks, the tour was as expected but really Our guide was outstanding, Mohamed is super attentive, polite and very instructed on the subject, with a perfect Spanish and university preparation, at the end of the day we decided to stay in the souk that is in front of the temple of Luxor and made many recommendations to arrive later at the bus station and care that we should have, in truly great experience and much coordination of all involved

Luxor is possibly one of the hottest places on Earth so please remember a hat, water and shades! Our guide Yola was so friendly that by the end any inhibitions were gone. There was no pressure to buy anything that she took us to and I walked away with some lovely gifts for my family at prices I wouldn’t have been able to get in Cairo. The trip was long as I naively and foolishly booked the bus but what was really nice was the manager came to pick us up to make sure we got the right stop! So after 8+ hours we finally made it. The city is stunning. The monuments are breathtaking and you can’t help but be awed by everything. On the way back we got on a different bus where we saw the real Egypt! This bus took forever as we had many pit stops and finally arrived back in Cairo at 6:30am where the same driver was waiting for us. So apart from the heat and the journey I could not say enough lovely things about Yola and the overall experience

Had an amazing tour around Luxor. The price may seem a bit high but there was so many places to see in the day and all admissions to the sites are included. Lunch at the restaurant was good which is also included. My tour guide Youla was very knowledgeable and answered any questions I had. I traveled there by bus, however if you want a good night rest it may not be the option for you. Will definitely book with them again the next time I’m in Egypt.
