The drivers were really kind. They came on time. The journey was pleasant. The guide tour gave us plenty of time on all the stops to look around and take pictures and explained the ancient Egyptian history very well. He was entertaining and gave us jokes and asked us lots of questions. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone coming to explore Egypt!

The Tour was great especially Smiley the Tour guide was a joy. Only disappointment was a delayed pickup of 1 and a 1/2 hours :( pickup time was at 3:30 am and I waited in front of the hotel until 5 am…if it would have been in the middle of the day I wouldn’t have cared that much but I got up at 3 am and sat outside for no reason at all. After finally picking me up everything went smoothly and the transportation was good.

Overall good tour. Were picked up 25 minutes late and taken to Luxor. The rides went well and you felt safe. The first thing we did when we arrived was the Karnak Temple. However, we didn't have enough time here. The guide rushed across the site, there was no time to stop and let the temple sink in. There was no time for photos either. We then continued on the boat across the Nile for lunch. After that came the Hatshepsut Temple and the Valley of the Kings. Before that, however, we stopped selling at a stonemason for a very long time. This time could have been better spent at Karnak Temple. Afterwards you could book a Nile trip with a visit to a banana plantation for 13 euros or 325 Egyptian pounds. Alternatively, one would have sat 1 1/2 hours longer on the bus. All in all, however, to be recommended and the guide Mimo gave a lot of information in both English and German.
