Similar but not same tour as with Luxor Travels as we customized
Dec 2019
I wanted to leave a review for Luxor travels and this was the closest as we did a day tour of Luxor with a flight from Cairo. It took a while for me to write a review for this tour - my sister and I went back in December 2018. The Trafalgar tour we were doing was not going to see Queen Nefertari's tomb. We had a couple days in Cairo before our Trafalgar tour started and I looked for options to tour Luxor from Cairo. When I saw Luxor Travels had something but also indicated custom tours, I thought this may work. I worked with Ragab El Motgalye to get the day tour wanted. He was responsive and polite even with all the questions that I had to ask. Email was the primary correspondence as I'm from the USA. Our custom tour included the following:
Transfers to/from the Cairo airport to/from our hotel
Flights to/from Cairo to Luxor
Valley of the Kings including King Tut's tomb
Valley of the Queens including Queen Nefertari's tomb
Medinat Habu
Ramesseum
Valley of the Artisans
Valley of the Nobles

Since we were dealing with someone in Egypt versus a global or US company, my sister was nervous if it was a scam or dangerous (if we'd be taken hostage or something). Let me reassure you, that was not the case and after we had our tours, my sister was very happy it worked out and that I found Luxor Travels. Our flight was 2 hours delay on the flight to Luxor, and we were worried we would not see all that we wanted. Khalid Eltayeb was our guide and he said we could do all planned as long as we stuck to his schedule - it may not be as much time as original but we did not feel rushed and got to see what we wanted. Khalid was very knowledgable. Hassan Taya was our driver in Luxor and we felt he drove us safely to our destinations. Our drivers in Cairo were also prompt and drove safely.

For the other day, we also used Luxor Travels to plan a day tour of Alexandria from Cairo. Trafalgar had an excursion we could book but as we found, we could do a separate tour with a private car rather than big bus, our own itinerary (we added the library that was not previously included), have a tour guide and driver to ourselves and move along when we were ready versus waiting like bus tour for stragglers, and was similar in cost. Taha (guide) and Mohamad (driver) did an excellent job - especially Mohamad driving in bigger city traffic of Cairo.

I would definitely recommend although if I had one piece of advice for Luxor Travels would be possibly more clarity in where and who we were meeting as we didn't know when in the hotel lobby and airport. Perhaps names and/or pics of drivers/guides.

Perfectly coordinated Highlights tour of Luxor
Nov 2019 • Couples
This is my second trip to Egypt and this was quite possibly one of the best tours I have done! Yes,one has to wake up at 3am to make the drive to the airport in order to reach Luxor but it was SO worthwhile. The valley of the Kong’s and the Karnak Temple was beyond parallel and our tour guide Khalid was exceptionally knowledgeable with a masters in Egyptology no less and his vast knowledge came into evidence many times during the tour.
My husband and I have a keen interest in the 19th and 20th dynasties and we wanted to identify the Pharaoh at the time of Joseph, Moses birth and the exodus and Khaled was a powerhouse of knowledge. He even drew a floor plan of the museum of antiquities from memory so that we could check out some of the things we had asked him about out when we were back in Cairo. This tour ran like a well-oiled machine, every thing planned in detail. Lunch was delicious and the drop off and pick up from the airport, plane rides, everything went perfect to a T!

Magnificent Day Trip to Luxor from Cairo
Oct 2019 • Couples
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!

Luxor
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!

Day in Luxor
Jul 2019 • Solo
I only had a short window of time during AFCON 2019 matches to visit Luxor and this was perfect: hotel pick-up, quick flight, day of tours and return. Guide Hassan was excellent - a PhD candidate - as was Mr. Ibrahim our driver. We spent the day on both banks of the Nile. Highly recommend this!

Tour with Khalid Eltayeb
May 2019 • Friends
The tour of Luxor with khalid was great! Even though the heat, he maintains an extremely positive demeanor and you can tell he loves the history of Egypt (especially Luxor). He has an amazing understanding of the history which was gained through years of studying in Cairo at the university. There is nothing that he doesn’t know. I highly recommend him to anyone who is taking a tour in Luxor. You will thoroughly enjoy it like we did!!

Private Full Day - Luxor from Cairo
OMG! I was amazed how professional our tour guide Ragab was! He was very knowledgeable and patient. The places that we visited were spectacular! We enjoyed every minute of it. He was very pleasant, welcoming, and funny! The tour itself was arranged and coordinated beyond our expectations! We didn’t need to wait for the tour guide or our driver. They were perfectly on time.
Ragab took us to a local restaurant that was absolutely amazing. The food was delicious! He always wanted to make sure we were having a good time!
If you want to book your next trip to Luxor look for Ragab in Luxor Travels! You will not regret it! Thank you Ragab! We love you and we will visit Luxor again!

A trip worth every dime+
This is the trip that empowered me as a black American! I was in “awww” my entire visit to Luxor from Cairo. Our guide not only was an Egyptologist but he also help excavate. The experience he has with the digging and his knowledge, my husband and I took several moments to just stand still. We heard the stories and read up but to actually be in the Valley of Kings.... is life changing. Guides are not allowed to actually go inside of the tombs with you. We sat down in the bench area before going inside each Tomb to get more in depth information. It helped because we knew what to expect and wasn’t left trying to figure things out, like we overheard other tourist trying to do.

Private tours are the way to go. Big groups, from our visits seem clustered and didn’t get the attention we were seeking. We were also able to explore more not only get answers to any question that we asked. Especially to Karnak, we enjoyed every detailed to include hieroglyphics reading. No matter what we asked he was able to explain and answer.

We went to this alabaster place after the valley. It was ran by generation of family that hand carved stones into sculptures. Money well spent. There were things that we got from the bizzar in Cairo; but, we knew we wanted some authentic things as well. Cheap stuff for our office and investment pieces for our home. This place offered us that. They even ship things to ur home if u like. We just chose to fly with our things. They wrapped them really well and nothing broke in out luggage. It comes with insurance and certified of authenticity.

The Nile River! It looks clearer in Luxor! We had to take small boat across the river to get to our vehicle. Comparing this to the Nike cruise, I just wanted to sit there for another ”awww” moment.

Although I can’t remember the restaurant he took us to. It was by far the best meal we had during our 9 day visit of Egypt. It over looked the Nile. It was clean and very friendly.

If you are reading this you need to book this trip!
