The drivers picked us up on time and took us through to Luxor where we met our guide Mahmoud. He is very friendly, knowledgeable and covered everything we wanted without feeling rushed. The river trip to Banana Cafe for great, generous food was beautiful. It was a huge day seeing a lot and made very comfortable in a clean air conditioned minibus. Highly recommended.

It was a nice trip, well organized. The transfer was accurate and included to the price after some arguments which we had as after booking the trip they wanted to charge us extra money for it, but at the end they kept the conditions which was written at the website. The guide was really kind, the heritage sites are incredible. Everything was great except the optional boat ride. They will tell you that you will see crocodiles and monkeys but when you get there you will see that they are in really small cages and not in their natural habitants. We felt really sorry for them and if we would knew before that they are not free, we would never pay for that. Please do not pay for this optional trip, hopefully they will let them soon free.
