We were picked up from our hotel and taken across the Nile to a waiting mini bus. We were then taken to a drop off point to wait for the balloon to be inflated. It was all so professional and safe. Our pilot was brilliant, explained everything and we felt so safe. The ride was magical, we saw the sunrise over the Nile and and rise to 2000ft, sometimes dipping down and skimming the top of crops! We floated over Queen Hatshepsut's temple, what a view! Such an incredible experience. When it finished we were taken back to the boat and dropped off at our hotel ( Winter Palace) for breakfast. After breakfast we were then taken by mini bus to the Valley of the Kings accompanied by our fabulous guide Ahmed Abass. He started explaining all the history and showing photos in the mini bus but accompanied us all around Queen Hatshepsut's temple, describing everything and bringing the history to life, with such an in depth knowledge, nothing like you can read on the Internet! We then drove to the Valley of the Kings where he continued to impress us with his knowledge and we visited three tombs. His English is superb and he was a great host. We had time for refreshments in a bedouin style cafe in the Valley of the Kings before being dropped off at our hotel. All the time - before,during and after the tour - we were updated and contacted via What's app. It was very professional and we can't recommend the company, Star Balloons and our guide Ahmed for the tour, enough. All 5*
A fantastic experience, thank you!
Spectacular!! 11 out of 10 stars

Unfortunately our balloon trip was cancelled due to bad weather. We are hoping to do this tomorrow. If not a refund was promised. Our tour of the west bank however still went on as normal. We were collected by Hatem at 7am sharp. A fantastic, well informed, well spoken, trustworthy gentlemen who not only gave us a detailed historical tour of the west bank but also gave us tips on street vendors, prices and quality of market items. We throughly enjoyed our tour with him. It was well planned especially as it's summer and 40 degrees. Hatem and Islam were both warm and welcoming, we felt like family. Will definitely recommend him to anyone looking to tour Luxor.
Experience a phenomenal tour with great people

This was an amazing experience. Everything was as described and our guide Ahmed really gave us a fascinating and detailed narrative of the sites visited. The hot air balloon ride was breathtaking. I will remember this tour for the rest of my life.
The best guide and an awesome ballon ride.

Awesome time seeing the sunrise on a ballon with a great pilot Amr. Then we were guided by the best tour guide my fiancé and I have ever had (and we’ve travel a lot!). Hatem is just a wonderful, kind, and caring human being - a husband and father of four. If you get an opportunity to be guided by Hatem, then make sure to ask him to share his younger years when he wrestled competitively! He had booked only the West Bank and then added the East bank to our itinerary since we enjoyed our time with him. (Side note, I highly recommend adding the east bank to your tour.) Hatem has a Master’s degree in Egyptology and has vast knowledge on the meaning behind the stories told through the hieroglyphs of the ancient Egyptians in addition to the history of Egypt.
In between visiting the sites on both banks, Hatem took us to a wonderful lunch with authentic Egyptian cuisine in the West Bank. The food was so delicious! Lastly, Hatem is a great photographer! We appreciated the fact that he took the time to make sure we had memorable pictures of the temples we visited during the tour. Can’t say enough good things about Hatem. I truly hope you get lucky enough to get him as your guide.
Best Excursion Ever!

This entire experience was absolutely amazing. The hot air balloon ride was magical and nothing like I ever experienced. That part of the tour was with a group.

The second part of the tour was private. Our guide Hatem was so kind, fun, and knowledgeable. Easily one of the best guides I have ever had! Hatem took us to they Valley of the Kings and fully explained the three chambers we got to visit. Then we went to visit a small shop where locals made hand crafted figurines and vases. He explained that there was no pressure to buy there but to also not accept the first price if we did. Then we went to Hatshepsut and you could tell his passion for the subject. Again so knowledgable. An amazing guide!

Also want to give props to our driver Ahmed, he delivered us safely to each site and was very nice as well.

Would highly recommend this tour!
