    We purchased the private guided tour. The driver arrived at our hotel on time, and despite reviews and reading google, we felt very safe driving from Hurghada to Luxor, and back! Once we were in Luxor, we met up with the guide who was very informative about the locations. She also gave us great tips and was patient with us and our two year old as we traveled all of the sites. Lunch was underwhelming and we were taken to a buffet. I would say the only negative to the day was the pushiness to see the favorites, or the different islands. Being with a toddler, we did not want to do deviate from the main sites as toddlers can be unpredictable. It was very annoying that we had to continue to say no, and feel like we were not heard when we said we did not want to go. Even at the end they drove past and stopped in front of the basket shop and as a final straw we had to push back again. Overall, it was a good day but wished we didn’t have to be grumpy in order to avoid tourist traps.

    The activity was interesting and superb but we were disappointed not to have spent enough time on the different sites. We were taken to a perfume store (the presentation was too long), we would have preferred to enjoy more time at the temple of Achepsut. The guide was walking very fast, we didn't have time to take pictures. She wasn't very friendly. However, we will keep good memories of this excursion.

    Very good trip. We were collected directly from the hotel at 5am and good a/c tour bus, just 11 tourists, with 2 drivers and a guide. Very interesting drive to Luxor from the coast and you really do see a lot, the last hour was fascinating as you are driving along waterways that has green vegetation and you can see real life with the locals. We had 7 hours in Luxor all with guides and very well organised.
