What people are saying about Luxor, Egypt

Impeccable organization with a fluid exchange with Arwa who keeps you informed and hears from you throughout the activity. Bomba is an excellent driver, good natured, friendly, constant communication before departure and the car smells very good. The hot air balloon experience is worth living, especially with the sunrise; unbelievable. Mohamed is a pilot who is both professional and at the same time friendly: nothing to say. Asma, our tour guide was really nice, involved and passionate. My congratulations for his French which is sincerely excellent for a person who started only 1 year ago: Bravo. Additional information: - Remember to take a coat or a good jacket (in the broad sense of what to cover yourself). At night it is really cool or even cold. -Count +/- 45min of waiting between the arrival in Luxor and the actual takeoff (waiting for other minibuses, inflating the balloons or even the briefing before boarding I recommend!

A great experience from A to Z. Driver Bomba picked us up at the hotel on time. He is very friendly and got us safely to Luxor. When we got there, we had to wait a little longer for the small buses, which then took us to the balloon field. Just the sight of all the balloons on the ground and in the air was very nice and then came the balloon ride. Indescribably great. After the balloon ride we were brought back with another bus. The driver Bomba was waiting and a short time later our tour Gide Saadi, with whom we spent the rest of the day, arrived. He showed us many things, his German is excellent and his knowledge enormous. After this eventful day, Bomba brought us back safely to Safaga. We can highly recommend the tour. Everything great - 5 stars

What an amazing experience. Very well organised from Bomba and Arwa, however a very long journey and quite cold in the early hours (bring a jacket and bag because it gets hot later on). Our Driver Mohamed Zamzam was supportive and helpful throughout the whole journey to and from Luxor and in Luxor too, couldn’t have asked for a better driver. Our Tour Guide Mohamed Sadiq was very knowledgeable and also very helpful when it came to recommendations, I liked that he never forced anything on us and let us choose our desired locations, he also welcomed me and my wife into his home city with open arms. Overall great experience but a very tiring one.

We had an amazing organized day. First we had a boat just for ourselves which took us around the Nile, the guide realized we loved nature so he gave us a proper treat by letting us walk on an island on the Nile to see birds and cows grazing. Then we went to the valley of the kings and temple. We had a very good guide which was very informative, he gave us a lot of info re kings and tombs. This day was great and an amazing experience in Luxor. Highly recommended

Beautiful day, great driver and an excellent guide!! This was the best day of our trip to Egypt.
