This is an excellent way to see Luxor on an overnight trip which included in price an excellent hotel, breakfast and lunch and all admissions. Our shipped docked in Safari for an overnight stay, We were picked up promptly by driver, 3 hour drive to Luxor where we picked up English speaking guide who was very knowledgable. Guide took control of everything. No wasted time. Very knowledgable saw all the major sites including light show at night and two trips on the Nile. Pricing much more reasonable than offered by cruise line. Highly recommend.
This trip was amazing. We added some extra stops for a fair price and took some recommendations from our guide on some extra fun things to do. They were worth it.
Our guide was an egyptologist, who was knowledgeable, gave us great extras, and accommodated our every need. It could not have been better.
P,lease note that the driver cannot pick you up at the ship, you must make it to the outside of the port. We were a little confused. Just walk on out, or take the shuttle.
WE had an outstanding guide, Ayman and driver Aly who made us feel comfortable. They went out of their way to provide us with a really full visit to Luxor and the Valley of the Kings and surroundings The choice of meal locations was outstanding The hotel in which we stayed was truly 5 star and right on the Nile. We had a good drive both ways. Staying overnight was a great choice for us and the tour agenda fit us very well.
