Nana our English speaking guard was Excellent. She was very informative she knew her history and which tombs where the best to visit. The excursion included 3 tombs to go inside. She warned of the touts and the sellers and made us feel safe. She stayed with us the full day. The bus was comfortable and the driver was great always ready to let us back on. We did the trip up the Nile, which lasted over 30 minutes it was great to see the sites from the river. The food was also good typical Egyptian buffet. We had a great day. It is long but we’ll worth it. Would recommend it.

The English guide, Nana, is just lovely. Full of knowledge, humor and made us feel safe at all times. The tour is superbs, with the valley of the kings being the highlight for me. The scenery alone is worth the trip. The only thing a little gratuitous was the alibaster factory, but there was no pressure to buy anything and it was a short stop, so the 5 stars remain. If you book this, you will not regret it.

Excellent and knowledgeable tour guide. Really had a wonderful trip visiting the Luxor area. Amazing history and lots to see, Valley of Kings, Karnak temple and Hatsetput temple. Get up early in the morning is a must. But, worth the effort.

you should definitely do it, unfortunately a bit too expensive considering you could do a quad safari ride for much less + small group with a good guide, it was like a private tour - snacks and water are included but we only got water

Luxor was our hightlight!!! The best and only tour i would definetely recommend. A huge thank you to Nana, our guide!!! She was so perfect and made everything beyond our expectation.
