Had a great day with Hassan and our driver. They were very professional and were waiting for us once our flight landed. Very communicative prior and courteous. They picked us up at the airport and dropped us off at the airport for $18 each way. They even took us to get complementary breakfast falafel‘s prior to the start of our tour which were really good! The private full-day Luxor Highlights East and West Banks tour was worth it. They took us to see everything we could in the time allowed as we flew in for the day from Cairo. I highly recommend booking with Hassan as he is the best you can get there! Very knowledgeable and explained a lot of the history we had questions about! Everything that was included on the itinerary is everything that we were able to see! I would highly recommend going in November and December as it was quite hot out but again with their exceptional service, the van that they picked us up in had great air conditioning and smelled soooo good!

I also recommend wearing very comfortable shoes, a hat, and bring water. They did provide water but we were drinking it like camels!

Another bonus. We really wanted to find some authentic oils and essentials, along with some jewelry which he was able to take us to those places as well!

Hassan is absolutely fantastic! As a credentialized Egyptologist, he was incredibly educated and informative on he major temples and exhibits in Luxor. He has full understanding of the history and lore behind major temples such as Karnak, Luxor Temple, and Valley of the Kings. Tell him to take you the the falafel place. The sandwiches he got us were quite possibly the best falafel I’ve ever had. Super funny, helpful, and transparent in his help to tourists. He is flexible and allows changes to the itinerary with small adjustments in fees. Must book experience if you’re looking to explore Luxor!

In a word, this tour was absolutely AMAZING!!!
I planned this tour one month in advance, and the tour organizer, Ragab, was always ready to answer my excessive questions patiently and courteously before I decided to finalize the booking. The airlines changed my flight to Luxor, so I moved the tour one day, and Ragab was accommodating. He also arranged a hot air balloon ride over Luxor at sunrise upon my request.
On the day of the tour, I was picked up from the hotel on time by the hot air balloon company right on time, and after the ride, Khalid, our tour guide, was waiting for me to start the tour. Khalid was professional, knowledgeable, passionate about ancient Egyptian history, answered all my questions, and took great pictures of me. He also gave practical advice for dealing with the people who will try and harass us to buy something at the sites. Our driver, also named Khalid, was a man of few words but was there every time we were ready to be picked up and was punctual and made sure we stayed dehydrated while taking us on the best adventures between the East and west banks.

We visited Luxor’s significant attractions, including Luxor Temple, Valley of the Kings, Colossi of Memnon, and Queen Hatshepsut Temple, then we had lunch at a local restaurant over the Nile.

I highly recommend this tour.

While I enjoyed the sites of interest and suggest touring these sites, I cannot promote this tour company or our tour guide, Rajab. We were led to expect a sunrise balloon ride, but were picked up late so we missed the sunrise.
The other issues mostly had to do with the tour guide. Rajab explained the sites outside then he sent us inside alone to wonder through ourselves. The other tour guides accompanied their group to explain sites as people were seeing them rather than ask if we have questions after we returned from the sites.
Also, our guide told us there was nothing to see in King Tut's tomb, but his mummy is there to see. I would have been so upset if I had missed seeing that.
Honestly, we felt like the guide just didn't want to be there. He walked way ahead of us most of the time and was not personable like the other guides we had on other tours.
They also charged us $20 each more than what is stated on the website for the balloon ride.
So, see these sites, but try to get a better company and guide.

Our guide Hamdy was very knowledgeable and helpful, and the driver was professional. We saw all the important sites with good explanation, the luch was also very tasty and big. No complaints, would recommend to anyone, expecially if you have limited time on Luxor, this one-day comprehensive tour helps you make the most of it.

This tour met and totally exceeded expectation.

Our guide, Khalid Eltayeb, an Egyptologist graduate with a Masters Degree, is exceedingly knowledgeable. In fact, a walking encyclopaedia! He set the scene from the moment our tour began and we had context from which he gave us an abundance of information at each historical site.

With an excellent command of English and storytelling skills Khalid was engaging throughout the entire day. Khalid was friendly but also very professional and struck a good balance in this respect.

The air conditioned vehicle was very comfortable and much welcomed and our driver Ramadan, was very pleasant and helpful; also kindly buying water for us.

Not only did we visit the designated sites but we enjoyed an amazing lunch at a local restaurant; an unexpected ride in a boat to cross the Nile and a visit to a family-run stone masonry business with a vast range of beautifully crafted ornaments.

We had an amazing day and would definitely use Khalid again. Thank you!

We have been on numerous private tours during our family holiday in Egypt, but our tour with Abdul was simply the best. Every detail was executed perfectly. Our driver was very safe and courteous, the car was brand new and very comfortable. They picked us up right on time. We were able to see all the major sites in Luxor during the 8 hour tour. We were traveling with our teenage boys and Abdul was able to keep them interested and involved throughout the tour. We felt very lucky to have a guide with a vast wealth of information, you can imagine our surprise when we found out he is an also professor and an Egyptologist. His love for his country’s amazing history was infectious. I would highly recommend his tour!!!

My wife and I did the tour of the west and east bank with Hassan Abdel Baset as our tour guide. Overall the tour was great and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in ancient Egyptian culture.

The tour began at 8 am when Hassan picked us up from our hotel with his driver. The first stop was the valley of the kings where we toured 4 tombs. This was truly incredible and it was so interesting to see the ancient writings. We paid the extra fee to see King Tut's tomb. Next Hassan took us to Alabaster factory where they showed us how the various ornaments and vases were made by hand. Before lunch we went to Temple of Queen Hatshepsut which was stunning. Lunch was at a traditional restaurant and was quite tasty. This concluded the tour of the West Bank.

After lunch we took the Ferry to the east bank where we continued our tour to Karnak temples and Luxor temple. I was not expecting this, but these two stops were my favorite of the experience. The sheer size of the temples, columns and statues was breath taking. Hassan's story telling was amazing and really made the experience worth it.

As a person who is not a huge fan of organized tours, I was amazed by the organization and profesionalizam of Ragab (tour guide) and Ramadan (the driver).
From the moment they picked us up, all the way to the end of the tour, it was very pleasant experience. Ragab is great person with great knowledge about the sights. He knows all the little details expecialy since he worked at the digging of the tumbs as young man, so getting the first hand insights was very nice. Also, his english is great. Ramadan’s driving was very good, safe, and both of them have very possitive energy.
We would highly recommnend using Ragab and Ramadan, and will suggest the same for all of our friends whenever they decide to come and visit Luxor.
Overall, great experience, we learned a lot of new things, plus had great time doing so. Thumbs up for this duo :)

My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our tour with Khalid. The full Luxor tour was very much worth the price in our opinion and in terms of sights to see it was probably the highlight of our trip to Egypt. Karnak temple was incredible and the valley of the kings was impressive as well. The pace was high, but just right to see as much as we saw in one day.

Khalid was extremely knowledgeable and informative, we learned more than we could have hoped. His English is excellent and we really enjoyed the day we spent with him. We would definitely recommend this tour and our guide Khalid to anyone interested in checking out the sights of Luxor!
