If you only have a limited time in Cairo, this is a good way (but a long day) to get a tour of the must-see historic sites in the Luxor area (Valley of Kings, Hatshepsut, Karnak and Luxor temples). We modified our itinerary to skip the camel ride and go to Luxor temple instead - do not miss Luxor. Our guide, Ahmed, was very knowledgeable on Egyptian history and was very helpful in accommodating unexpected needs and in changing our lunch menu and itinerary. He also checked on us to make sure we got back to our hotel ok. He and the driver were very nice and we definitely recommend this tour and guide.
Know before you go: A driver will take you from your Cairo hotel to the airport and then you meet your tour guide in Luxor. We were picked up at 2:30am and got back to our hotel about 8:00pm. Bring Egyptian cash - admission fees not included or required tipping - and a working ATM was difficult to find. Eat before you go, there is no breakfast on arrival - but our driver kindly took us to a market to get something. You will stop at a stone carving museum and store with the long sales pitch. If you buy, expect their first offer to be about 3 times higher than you should pay.
Great day trip from Cairo. It is a long day but they give you a room to rest in before the return flight. Knowledgeable guide and organized itinerary to make the best use of the day.
Great trip, everything went smoothly. The Karnak temple was probably the highlight of my entire trip to egypt. Awe inspiring. Go see it.
Hatem ,my tour guide, is very knowledgeable and makes every place we went interesting. He is also very helpful and kind. Thank you for making my stay so memorable.
We loved this tour. We received very good communication about pick up times and our guides and drivers were all punctual. First the plane ride to Luxor - just know the pick up time is early. Saladino picked us up at the airport and, with his driver, spent the entire day with us. Our lunch on banana island was very good. The visits to the pyramids were amazing. It is difficult to imagine historical buildings/temples/pyramids dating back so far. Luxor itself is slower paced than Cairo, and beautiful. On our camel ride we experienced seeing what the people were doing. Our felucca ride, even though there was no wind, also showed much of the daily life of Luxor. We even saw the ancient fishing art of slapping the water so the fish would go into the nets. Loved that we were given a motel to rest for a few hours until our flight home. Great communication. Fabulous experience. Highly recommend Saladino and this tour.
Me and my friend had such an amazing day in Luxor. Our tour guide Ahmad was the most knowledgeable, kind, patient and enthusiastic tour guide one could hope for.
The tour involved a variety of things from the tombs in the valley of the Kings, the Queens temple, the large temple of Karnak , And an adventure down the Nile river on Felucca boat with tasty Egyptian food ; we even got to dance to some great Egyptian music. Thank you so much Ahmad for making our adventure in Lexur very memorable. 😊
