What people are saying about Luxor Temple

The Nile Cruise is a must-do and we could not have asked for a better overall experience! Our trip was organised by Sheba Travels and all our pick-up/transfers and excursions were co-ordinated by Taghreed. She was prompt and communicative which made for a hassle-free trip. A shout-out to our guides : Ghada at Luxor - who managed to fit in so much as we had less time due to our train arriving late, Mohammed in Kom Ombo - who was excellent and so informative, and Abu in Abu Simbel - who directed us through the temples efficiently so we weren't stuck in a queue for ages! We were disappointed by our guide in Edfu, which we communicated to Taghreed. Our on-board experience too was superb! The cabins were comfortable and we were delighted to be so close to the water! The staff on-board were helpful, the buffet meals were good. Most of all we loved spending time on the sundeck - chilling with a drink by our side, discovering the landscapes of Egypt as we cruised down the beautiful Nile! ❤️

Everything was great!! We really enjoyed the tour! The program was according to our liking and the guide, Mahmoud Nafee was great and very helpful! We made him wait a lot in order to take photos The driver of the mini bus was very nice and he was driving safely, we felt like we could trust him. They also offered us lots of water because the day was extremely hot. The driver that picked us up from our hotel, Ramy, was amazing!! He was very helpful and he took care of us. Very nice people! I rate the tour with 5/5 stars! The only thing that we didn't like was the fact that the bathroom of the bus that took us form Cairo to Luxor was unbelievably dirty and it didn't have water or soap.

It was an amazing experience. We got all the information we needed before the tour, Rania was amazing arranging the transfer and being flexible with our requests. Our driver and our tour guide Adel was amazing, we really enjoyed our full day tour with them. Luxor is definitely a spot to visit in Egypt and this is the company to go for! Thank you Rania and Adel for a great experience.

Cruise itself was really nice (good food, friendly staff) but tour system was so complication which was mixing with other tour group and it changed every day(even two time a day) so you need to ask your tour company what time they will take you one by one

Ghada is a very knowledgeable guide who is happy to share the rich history of her lovely country.
