    Best Tour in Egypt!!!
    My guide Khalid Eltayeb and my driver Hassan were the best I had in 10 days worth of tours in Egypt! Accurate historical information, friendly, on time, clean vehicle, and no extra selling. They had so much water on hand for me as well. If you go to Luxor ask for them. We covered so much stuff in one day, and I wasn’t even tired after all of it. The company was also very nice in dropping me off at the airport for my flight after the tour for a small fee. The wonderful part was the fee was less than what a taxi would cost. Luxor Travels is #1 in Egypt!!!

    Excellent 2 half day tours
    We had the pleasure of having Rania Raouf as our tour guide for two days, and she showed us all around Luxor! She was brilliant and very helpful and made sure we had all the information we needed. She always made sure that we were okay, and we felt very safe. We would highly recommend her and the tour company 😊 Would definitely use again and would love to come because of her!

    All the sites in 2 days
    I did the 2 day tour. It was fairly relaxed and we were not in any rush. I think if I'd tried to squeeze both the west and east sides of luxor in a day it would have felt rather rushed. The guide, Khalid Eltayeb, was really knowledgeable. I think it was definitely better to do the sites with a guide as there aren't many signs or notice boards. You got a lot more out of it when there is someone who can explain exactly what you are looking at.

    Magnificent Day Trip to Luxor from Cairo
    I highly recommend our guide Khalid Eltayeb during our day trip from Cairo to Luxor, Egypt. He picked us up at the airport and we stopped for Turkish coffee before we set off on a full day. We visited the major sites in the area, including Karnak Temple; Valley of the Kings; Queen Hatchepsut’s Temple and the Colossi of Memmnon. His knowledge of the history added so much to the experience. A trained Egyptologist, he added so much to the experience. I highly recommend him and plan to pass his name on to family and friends. Between Khalid and the driver, we felt very safe and were able to concentrate on the highlights of the day. Our lunch was the best we have had on our in our trip. We topped it off with a night visit to Luxor temple. I loved this trip!

    Excellent and Memorable experience!
    My friend and I booked a full day tour with them in Luxor. The tour consisted of all major attractions. We were sent a private car with a driver and tour guide. Our guide was Rania and let me just say that we couldn’t have asked for a better guide! She was there promptly to pick us up at the hotel. Being a native, she was very knowledgeable and well versed in the history as well as the cultural aspects of Egypt and was able to answer all our questions. She planned our day perfectly and knew exactly the best times to stop at each attraction in order to avoid crowds and get good photo opportunities. She let us take our time at each stop and we did not feel rushed at all. Overall had a very good experience and would highly recommend Rania and Luxor travels!

    Unforgettable experience!
    This was the most exquisite tour guide I have ever experienced to date! Our guide, Rania was not only extremely knowledgeable but she was very passionate about Egyptology! Rania was thorough with her explanations about each temple we visited during the tour. I left the tour with more knowledge than I could have ever imagined. The tour was both comprehensive and very well planned from start to end. Rania accommodated all of our requests and made sure all our questions were answered. Additionally, we had the most delicious organic & traditional Egyptian lunch overlooking the city and the Nile river. Overall, this was a 5 star experience and I’m *SO* happy that I ran across this company on Trip Advisor. Highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a both educational and fun time in Luxor!

    Wonderful tombs and Hatshepsut temple
    We visit these places with a wonderful Guide.Nagla was friendly, very professional ,clear explanations. Do not miss Toutânkhamon ‘ tomb(extra fee) and Ramses IX ‘ tomb. In The temple of Hatshepsut we discovered the history of a very powerful woman who ruled Egypt for almost 20 years. We had a very good time. Tour well organized and excellent guide

    Luxor best of 2 days
    We had Khalid and he was wonderfully knowledgeable about all the history on the tour. We were blown away by his knowledge base. He was on time both days and the driver was great too. The first day we added Nefertari’s tomb as well as King Tuts. The were both worth it to see. He made sure we were the only 2 in Nefertari’s tomb so we could take our time to see it. It was worth the $75 a piece to add on. King Tut ran about $7.50 a piece. The first day was long. It went from 8-5. And the second day went from 8-12 or so. I would definitely say this tour was worth it.

    Amazing time
    An amazing day out, went to king tut and nefertari's tombs. We went to the valley of the king's two days in a row but the second was much better thanks to Nagla our amazing guide, she was very friendly, gave us better information than the previous day's guides and took us to some beautiful tombs we would never have known about if it wasn't for her. Would 100% recommend to everyone

    Satisfied far beyond my expectation
    We booked this tour through TripAdvisor based on the feedback but still was very apprehensive about the same until I met Rania Raouf today morning with her big smile .Her personality and her knowledge about the subject set the tone right and we headed for the tour and one after one she exceeded our expectation by presenting the monuments and overall history in such a way that we felt as if we are travelling in a time machine which took us 5000 years back . I always knew that Luxor is full of history ,heritage culture and nature but all we wanted someone to blend all of them together and present to us in a manner which will make things pleasant ,knowledgeable and memorable .and our tour guide Rania just nailed it . She exactly know what we wanted and how we wanted .She also ensured that we are not very tired and are happy at the end of the day.we so wanted to do the balloon ride but because of the shortage of time we had to let go but Rania and Luxor travels did try their best to accommodate us for the ride .Overall we are highly satisfied and Rania you presented Luxor to us way beyond our expectation .I highly recommend you and your Luxor tours to every one and is truly a value for money . Next time when we visit Egypt we will book all our tour programs through you guys .wishing you all the best .

    Amazing Day Trip of Luxor East & West Banks
    Luxor Travels made our trip to Luxor extremely memorable! They are extremely punctual, the guide and the car were at our hotel even before 8:00 am, and were available just for the two of us for the entire day! The car was a spacious SUV and the driver was really good. Special thanks to our guide Ms. Rania Raouf for being the best guide ever. She was extremenly knowledgeable, humble, professional and an amazing storyteller - shared intricate details of Egyptian history we never knew of! She timed each attraction perfectly so we can have less crowd and the make most of our time! She also is an amazing photographer and patiently clicked hundreds of photos for us. And yes, the lunch at Africa hotel was mindblowingly fresh and delicious (one of the best Shawarma places ever)! We would highly recommend Luxor Travels, especially Ms.Rania Raouf as the tour guide!

    We were met with smiles from Khalid, our tour guide for the day, and Hasan, our driver, at our hotel the morning of our adventure. Khalid has an impressive knowledge of Egyptology. His easy going and friendly personality provided an un-intimidating environment to ask questions. He acquired our tickets prior to entering all the sites, which avoided queuing in any lines...a major plus. Hasan and Khalid made sure we were well hydrated and cool upon arrival to our private van after each site; after walking about the sites in 105F heat, that was very much welcomed! Thank you Hasan and Khalid for a very memorable visit to Luxor!
