based on 5,302 reviews

the trip was well organized and we were picked up on time. In Luxor we were received by a local tour guide who spoke German very well. he guided us through egyptian history during 5 stops. the huge temples and the valley of the kings are must-sees. a big thank you to our companion Shaban. the entrance tickets refer to the inspection of the temple. these must be purchased. if it doesn't work directly via getyourguid, buy the tour and entry tickets separately. worked for me too. The only extra charge during the tour is 10 euros for a boat trip on the Nile. this is optional because some customers don't feel comfortable on the water, but you should have experienced it. We were very satisfied and would recommend the trip to others.

Our trip to Luxor and back, despite a longer stay at the activities than originally planned, worked great and was very pleasant. Our driver (Bomba) tried very hard to make the journey as pleasant as possible for us :) we even had our own car, so it was very comfortable :)

Bomba is an excellent host and driver! Very funny guy and made us feel comfortable straight away! Hot air balloon was amazing as were all the temples! Our guide was very knowledgable and fit a lot in in a very short space of time.

They picked us up very early in the morning. It took about 6 hours. The guide bought our tickets and we paid for the boat tour. It was very successful for its price.

Fabulous trip, well worth the early start and travel time. Smiley was our guide and he was fantastic, very knowledgeable and very helpful.
