Day trip to Luxor with Nana was the best! We started at the temple of Karnak, Nana was very informative, enthusiastic and had lots of fun and interesting facts making it easier her easy to learn from. We followed on to a short trip on the nile boat and stayed at the crocodile restaurant for lunch. We only had a small group do it was easier for us for breaks and chatting. We then visited the valley of the kings and entered several tombs including Ramesis and Tutankhamen which was one of the highlights of the tour. Nana was fantastic with her short stories, explaining the legends of ancient Egypt and how people thought and lived. Nana helped us understand the messages of hyroglphic so we knew how to identify the symbols and what this meant on the walls of the tombs which was very interesting. It was extremely hot but 100% worth it as this is a huge tick on the bucket list for a life list! We visited several.other historical sites and Nana rounded off the day with ice cream brilliant!

Mohammed was our guide and was excellent. Highly recommend this tour, my wife and I had a great experience. We always had water provided to us on the bus and snacks provided between stops. Mohammed was very knowledgeable about the history of luxor/ valley of the kings and he was very insightful. We were very happy with our experience.

Sehr anstrengende Tour wegen der Temperaturen aber auch eine sehr schöne Tour! Man bekommt eine Menge zu sehen und zu hören über das Land und seine Kultur. Unser Busfahrer und unser Tourguide waren sehr hilfsbereit und sehr erfahren. Beide supernett.

We had a fantastic time and our guide Nana was amazing, so knowledgeable and fun and helped us all on the trip have a fantastic day. We couldn’t recommend her and the drivers highly enough

Our guide Nana was excellent knowledgeable and a great person making the experience fun in all that heat Thank you
