The pick up was 40 minutes late and were not picking up the phone so I got worried, but eventually arrived. The bus is small and uncomfortable as you can’t even fit your legs properly. Our guide Nana, however, was such a strong character. Absolutely loved her and the way she took us around and even bough us snacks and ice cream from the shop. If it wasn’t for her I would have given it 4 stars. Overall the experience is worth it.

Very well organized tour. We booked it online two days in advance and were kept informed about everything via whatsapp. We were picked up on time by the team at our hotels' reception in Hurghada and had our tour guide, Nana, waiting for us in Luxor. She was very professional and friendly in the way she explained everything. She was amazing. Throughout the day we were given water, lunch and a snack. On both ways of the trip we made some stops to stretch our legs. I totally recommend this trip to anyone staying in Hurghada and looking forward to get to know some of the Egyptian history and culture. The FTS team are very professional.

Luxor and Valley of Kings was just amazing. An absolute must see when visiting Egypt. Only one thing to say: Go Our guide Nana was so great. We were met with a big smile and a lot of energy. She told us about the dramas in the royal families, the kings and queens, the buildings, the crypts, the workers etc. Nana is a great storyteller, helpful and kind.
