Awesome tour in magical Luxor

We just had an awesome Luxor tour. We travel frequently but rarely write reviews. This one definitely was top of the line. Well organized and so customized and tailored to us. By far the best and most memorable time we ever had. The tour guide Ragab and his team were so knowledgeable about Luxor and Egypt history. At the same time they went way beyond what’s expected and offered to accommodate us to the minute details. My family and I enjoyed it so much and definitely would do it again.
Great Tour!

Ragab was wonderful, very accommodating and extremely attentive. He was detailed on his explanation and gave as much free time as one would like. He also arranged pickup/drop off at the airport and hotel without any problem. Thank you for everything.
Lovely tour

Had a lovely tour with Mahmoud Haggag. He was knowledgeable, explained all the sites we were about to see and left us time to enjoy. We saw valley of the kings, an alabaster workshop and Hatshepsut’s temple on day one, then Karnak and Luxor temples with a stop at a spice shop on day two. We were with our not-always-cooperative three year old, but Mahmoud was flexible and happy to make some last minute changes to the plans. Definitely recommend having a guide, you can get much more out of the experience!

Hassan was very friendly and informative he gave us lots of detailed and interesting information about the Temples and places we visited. He allowed us time on our own to also browse for ourselves. In 2 days we managed to see all of the main places but if you want to visit Valley of the Queens and Habu Temple you would need to pay extra. Overall really happy with both our driver and Hassan.
Bring your own water… and a guide?

The tour was OK - we got picked up and dropped off at the right place and time, and have stopped at all the places listed in the itinerary. Aside from this, nothing made the tour stand out beyond average. We have received one bottle of water each on the first day and none on the second so be sure to bring your own water.

On the first day we have seen the Valley of the kings and the Temple of Hatshepsut. In the car on the way there the guide has told us that the origin of the word pyramid comes from Egyptian words Py-Ra-Mid and told us what that means, however that’s entirely not true because the word pyramid comes from the Greek word “pyramis” and was used by the Greeks to describe the Egyptian pyramids. Suffice it to say, he lost credibility with us before stepping out of the vehicle. At the Valley of the Kings he pulled out a bunch of pictures and was “guiding” us by telling us about what’s on the pictures as apparently he was not allowed to enter the tombs with us. At the Temple of Hatshepsut he was allowed to explore the temple with us since other groups definitely went in with their guides however ours preferred to stay in the shade of the cafeteria and let us explore the temple on our own.

On the second day my wife wasn’t feeling well so only I participated in the tour. We went to the Temples of Karnak which is a huge roughly cross-shaped complex with a designated 2 hour stop on the itinerary. We got into about the middle of it with the guide and he provided me with some high level information and then after no more than half an hour gave me some time to roam the complex on my own and asked if 15 minutes would be all I need. I was a little taken by surprise since we haven’t even seen half of it yet so I asked for about another half an hour. As I was exploring the complex on my own, I saw two blocks with ancient text that was nothing like anything else in the complex. It was definitely carefully written text and not just some graffiti yet totally different from anything else and so I took a picture of it to ask my guide about it later. He seemed to not have any clue what he was looking at and just told me about different types of texts that existed in the ancient times. In any case, as I was exploring the complex I soon realized that the additional half hour I’ve asked for was not nearly going to be enough. I’ve checked the itinerary and confirmed that the stop was scheduled for 2 hours not one and so I stayed for another hour. I had no way of contacting the guide and he was a little upset about me having taken so long, even though I stayed entirely within the scheduled time. We did not travel half way around the world for a tour guide to cut our experience in half. It’s bad enough he wasn’t there to actually guide us most of the time. At the Luxor Temple my experience was about the same. I enjoyed most of my stay there exploring the temple on my own, listening to other guides explain things to their groups while my guide was sitting outside of the temple in the shade of the trees. I suggested to him that we have paid for two people at two temples and only one participated and so I’ve asked if I could get two tickets from him for one of the two temples for the following day so I could return with my wife. He wanted to deal about this “away from the company” and just between him and I as a personal favor. When I explained that I’m not asking for a personal favor but simply for the company to deliver the value for which I paid for, he told me that he will contact the company and see what he can do, and then in the end just gave me cash for the value of the unused tickets - a bit of a saving grace, perhaps.
