Honest Review of an Amazing Day. We booked on the day before and were very apprehensive. Our pickup was a little late at 5.30am but we felt at ease when we met our fellow explorers. We had a fun English speaking group, with 2 drivers and a guide. Be prepared for a 3 hour desert drive and then another 2 hour drive along the very scenic nile delter, be prepared for endless speed bumps and checkpoints (this is more painful on the way home). We started at the amazing Karnak Temple and met our knowledgeable, charismatic and fun Egyptologist. You'll definitely want to tip him. All the temples we visited are breathtaking and worth the early start and long day. It can get very hot so be warned. The short nile boat trip is magical and we felt like we were in a movie. The negatives on the day are all the bazaar stalls at every site, the stone workshop and of course all the travelling, but it is well worth it. We could not recommend enough, we will never forget this amazing trip.

the trip was well organized and we were picked up on time. In Luxor we were received by a local tour guide who spoke German very well. he guided us through egyptian history during 5 stops. the huge temples and the valley of the kings are must-sees. a big thank you to our companion Shaban. the entrance tickets refer to the inspection of the temple. these must be purchased. if it doesn't work directly via getyourguid, buy the tour and entry tickets separately. worked for me too. The only extra charge during the tour is 10 euros for a boat trip on the Nile. this is optional because some customers don't feel comfortable on the water, but you should have experienced it. We were very satisfied and would recommend the trip to others.

Bus was very uncomfortable, especially to be on for 8+ hours of the trip. Valley of the kings was so interesting, especially as our guide Nanna was so knowledgable and passionate! Didn’t see much for the Nile tour but it was fine. Food and rest of the trip was good. Highly rate Nanna
