Worth every penny! The guide was so knowledgeable and helpful. A tiring day but it wasn't just seeing the sights - temple of Carnack etc. It was the drive through Luxor which was an education and the unplanned boat trip on the NIle for 10 was brilliant. Egyptio Tours did us proud

A very long and hot day but so worth it. We had an excellent guide and saw some fantastic sights. The pace was good and the lunch excellent. Valley of the Kings, the Nile, Karnak Temple, the Theban Necropolis, the Temple of Hatshepsut all amazing and not to be missed. Wear trainers and light clothing. Take lots of fluids with you and a pillow for the journey. Highly reccomended.

I can highly recommend the tour to anyone who is looking to see as much as possible in one tour. I had a very knowledgable guide Mimo who spoke English fluently, and was very attentive and accommodating. Much content in the day, buffet lunch was great I'm a vegetarian, all in all a great day to be had. One thing I would have liked is more time at the various sites. Due to the distance you have to cover in one day, time is limited at each site - I guess one just has to accept this. It is a long day so expect to be very tired by the end of it, but it will be worth your while.

We really enjoyed this tour. Our tour guide Ali was very knowledgeable and helpful. Because we had a small group, he was able to give us some options to enhance our experience. This was the highlight of our trip to Egypt!

We did the day trip to Luxor during our stay in Hurghada 23rd November to 30th November with Egyptio Tours. It was a very long trip but it was well worth the travel. The mini bus that we travelled in was clean and tidy but it got uncomfortable after all that time on board even though we had a stop for about 20 minutes which converted to 35 minutes Egyptian time! The trip is advertised as a 3 hour trip. However, it took 4 hours 15 mins to get there and just over 5 hours for the return trip! The guide spoke really good English and was excellent as he took the time to explain things throughout the trip. The buffet lunch was ok and was included in the price so you just paid for your drinks at the restaurant. The restaurant was clean and the toilet facilities were good. We both really enjoyed the trip and felt that it was good value for the money. However, there are just a few points to note before you book the trip. Firstly, if you do the Nile trip it will cost you an extra 200EGP each about 10. Secondly, the admission to the Valley of the Kings only covers you to enter 3 tombs. If you want to enter more than 3 you will need to buy extra site entrance tickets at 160EGP per person about 8. Thirdly, if you want to take pictures inside the tombs you will need to purchase a photography licence which will set you back 300EGP per camera about 15. Unfortunately, this also only covers you for 3 tombs. So if you want to enter the other tombs and take pictures inside them, then you will you need to purchase extra entrance tickets and also need to purchase an extra photographic licence! Fourthly, if you want to go into the Tutankhamun tomb you will need to pay an extra 200EGP per person about 10. You are not allowed to take any pictures at all inside the Tutankhamun tomb! Finally, there are a couple of stops on this trip which are basically just shops! The first one is a shop trying to sell you drawings made on parchment and the second is a stone ware shop trying to sell you stone vases and ornaments etc. Its a real pity that they do this as it eats into the extra time that you could spend at the various sites. Overall it was a really good experience and was great value for the money. It was just a pity that so much valuable time is wasted during those unnecessary stops to try and get you to buy unwanted things!

It may seem unreasonable to critique a visit to Luxor Karnak, Nile, Hatshepsut, Valley of the Kings but it's worth a few notes. First, there's no need to book ahead as you can get the same price at your hotel. Second, if possible, get a packed breakfast from your hotel because there are no service stops! Third, the roads are appalling so seriously consider taking extra clothes to cushion the ride. Fourth, our lunch stop was not good, especially for vegetarians, so again consult your hotel first. Fifth, we got faced with a supplementary 10 charge for a boat on the Nile the alternative was a long trip round by the bridge. It was fun but should have been flagged earlier. Finally, the guide was good but only when 'on script' and evasive on questions, so get well-read beforehand. That said, the sites you visit on this trip are completely stunning - unmissable.

While the sites and monuments visited on this tour were incredible, and the tour was well organised, the tour operator's knowledge was poor, he was very repetitive and condescending. His manner was offputting and his prolonged but meaningless explanations at each site led to limited time to enjoy and view each site.
