Late pickup—Unimpressive
, Aug 2022
Not impressed with this trip. It started badly when the pickup was an hour late. The tour operators appeared to be conducting some sort of scam with tickets, asking children to under report their age, sending in two people on one ticket, and asking for the original paper tickets to be returned to them for some reason. Also wasn't impressed that people on the same bus, taking exactly the same trip as us had paid less. This is also dishonest pricing. We didn't get to see the colossi of Memnon because of timing issues. The hard sell on an 'optional' extra at the end that required extra payment was also not welcome.

This experience was out of this world. It was so well organised, the guides were knowledgeable not only on the places we went but on tourists. We were given the information we needed and Theban given time to go off and take photos and given the opportunity to ask questions. This was perfect, not everyone wants a full history so being able to go and see things and take photos while others stayed to ask questions was just perfect. We weren’t rushed around, everything was explained in advance. I have nothing but praise for this experience. It was perfect!
Bitterly disappointed!!!
, May 2022
We awaited our pick up and no one turned up. From 4.15am we waited and tried calling but there was no answer and still no one showed up. Very disappointed in this as I have still had no contact despite emailing asking for an explanation!
Great tour

Food was horrible and restaurant was not near the Nile as stated. It’s by sand. Did not state tutukarman. Better air con needed in the bus

Excellent excursion with first class guidance from Mohammed at Luxor. Only improvement suggestion would be a larger coach with sufficient legroom .
Well organized but a shameful attraction at the end
, Mar 2022
The trip was well organized. Due to the high amount of Russian people in our bus, we only had a Russian guide in our bus. Later-on, when approaching Luxor, an English speaking guide joined us and we had some explanation as well. The lunch was very basic and not recommendable (but included). Our biggest frustration was that the guide extended our trip with a boat trip to "crocodile island" for 10 euro per person. It was not obliged but if we didn't do this, we had to wait for 1 hour on the bus until the others were back. That's blackmail. On top of that, crocodile island was nothing more than a couple of shops, 5 monkeys in a cage and 2 crocodiles in a poor sink. Really shameful. They shouldn't do that. The trip to Luxor was fine until that point. A pity that they screwed up the trip at the end. It gave us a bad feeling.

Thanks for a wonderful day in Luxor
, Mar 2022
We had an amazing day with our great guide Osama! He made the whole tour so much more fun and interesting. All the little details and facts about Egyptian history have been so insightful. The whole trip was good organized and we can recommend this type of tour and especially our German tour guide Osama!

Excellent with minor issues
, Feb 2022
Excellent trip. Very well organized. The guide was very helpful and full of local knowledge. Expect a long bus journey if your pickup point is Hurghada. We were accompanied by, what seemed, armed government security which made us feel very safe travelling across the desert. Hot Meal provided and fresh fruit while crossing the Nile which was much appreciated. We recommend not to visit crocodile island as we felt it should not be an attraction due to the animal welfare issues. Overall, excellent trip and great value for Money.
Great sightseeing
, Feb 2022
Day didn’t start great as they told us 4.30am and didn’t pick us up till 5.15! There was no communication of this. the long journey there was made even longer with the check points which seem a little strange as nothing really happens just makes big queues. The tour guide was great once in Luxor , he was so helpful with our autistic daughter and really knowledgeable . The sights were busy but great. You could spend weeks there and not see it all. The lunch was mediocre however was in a nice location. Drinks aren’t included but not silly prices. The boat across the Nile was a nice touch. Valley of the kings and hatephsut temple were fabulous to see. Ticket gets you 3 tombs, you can’t choose which 3 it’s which are open. Apparently it changes often to stop wear on them. The journey back was long and boring and the constant loud music was a little annoying. Overall fabulous sights to see
Would not wish upon my worst enemy
, Nov 2021
NOT IN A MINIVAN. The trip was nothing as described in the trip details on the website. We felt extremely cheated and deceived. 6 hours into the trip and we still weren't even on our way to Luxor. The bus continuously stopped every 10 minutes to pick people up along the coast line. The MASSIVE tour bus was fully booked and masks are not required. We took the first bus back to El Gouna at the first rest stop. We were offered a refund, but as expected, we have received nothing.

If you're on a tight schedule, stay away unless you can be flexible.
, Jul 2021
Terrible company. They cancelled our tour the day before due to "weather" which is laughable since it's always 40C and clear skies. We woke up at 4AM to a message from the operator stating that the tour was "rescheduled" to a date we couldn't possibly make it (5 days later).. We had to figured out a new plan that same morning. The silver-lining to the story was that we ended up taking a Go-Bus to Luxor form Hurghada (way cheaper), and we managed to find a guide on the way there who was ten times better than anything this company offers and also cheaper... Stay away from these irresponsible people if you don't want surprises.

Not to be missed while in Egypt
, Mar 2020
Fantastic daytrip to Luxor. Pick up from Hurghada was around 4.40 am and we got back around 9.30pm. Said was our guide who was extremely knowledgeable. We also had the Nile boat trip which you have to pay separately - 10 euros per person. The sights are amazing, we were glad we took this trip.

Long trip but worth it
, Feb 2020
Long trip, but absolutely worth it. Our guide was very passionate about his job. The day was packed with interesting sites and he told us a lot about the Egyptian culture and history. Boat trip was not included, we paid 100 Egyptian pounds pp. Lunch was nice and there was enough food. Bring something for the long ride (4,5-5 hours one way Hurghada - Luxor by microbus).
Good but not awesome
, Dec 2019
We had a really good guide, who gave us loads of information and took us to all the good spots. Luxor was amazing and we got to see everything as advertised. But they also took us to shops (alabaster and papyrus factory and shop) which wasn’t in the itinerary and the prices there were way high. Also be aware there might be small children on the trip which doesn’t really make sense being a historical tour. Overall still satisfied with the tour for the price (:

Dear Guest Thanks a lot for your comment which really help us to prove our service. Kindly put in mind that the tour is not private, it's sharing your small group not more than 8 people and in your day were only 7 people. 2 German they had their own guide and 4 English with little baby and your had your own guide(almost private). The stops you mention was not more than 20 mintues in every place without any pushing to buy anything. It is our clients request sometimes and every step during the day is controlled. You will never miss a stop and you will never be in hurry for any stop. Again thanks a lot for your opinion and we sure will put it in mind.

Fantastic trip
, May 2019
This was such a great experience. We were collected at 5am on the dot and do make sure you bring plenty of water and a breakfast box from your hotel. Our guide was fantastic and an obvious expert which made it very special. We felt safe and guided at all times, and would 100% recommend this tour.

Great exploration of Egyptian temples and tombs.
, May 2019
White shark travel was our tour operator and it was an excellent experience. Guide was great and very informative and sights truly breathtaking. Last 100 km of road very bumpy , but that's governorate fault. Site is also very hot, plenty of fluid and head cover it's a must.
