“Exceptional tour company!!!”
Review of Eye of Horus Tours

Eye of Horus Tours
Ranked #17 of 94 Tours in Luxor
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 March 2010

My girlfriend and I recently used Eye of the Horus tours to organize individual tours in the various cities we were traveling to - Cairo, Aswan (incl Abu SImbel), Luxor and Dahab. We were a little bit nervous about traveling ourselves and decided to hire a local tour company to handle all of the transporation to and from the various airports we flew into and organize private tours for us. Eye of Horus Tours surpassed all of our expectations! The tour guides and drivers were extremely knowledgeable, professional and courteous. Our favorite tour guides were Ahmed in Luxor and Ahmed in Aswan. They both had a tremendous wealth of knowledge about the history of Egypt and the sites we were visiting, acted very professionally and never pressured us into going to certain places or purchasing things from stores.
I recommend Eye of Horus Tours to anyone who is going to Egypt. Their prices are reasonable and they are 100% reliable.
Happy travels!

After reading several reviews we booked our tours from home. A deposit was paid prior to departure and the balance when in Egypt. Our tours were The West Bank, East Bank, Karnak Sound & Light, Morning Balloon Ride and Abu Simbel with an overnight in Aswan. The tour company were very professional and our guide, Ahmed, was very knowledgable and managed to make the tours both fascinating and entertaining. I think without doubt that we will return to Luxor and use the same tour company to further explore the region. Last but not least, we saved a considerable amount of money by booking with this tour company.

We had an excellent guide in Jahn to take us on a whole days tour of the West Bank sites. Very knowledgable and able to impart that knowedge with wit and enthusiasm.
However the day ended on a bad note, as despite the email agrement I had made with Mohammed that all the places we had been to would be included in the itinerary price of $60 per person (incorporating the 3 West Bank tours the agency offers into one day), he insisted that we pay $90.

Recently was in the Nile River Valley (Luxor, Aswan) in November 2009 and was guided through the temples and sites by the Eye of Horus Tour Group. The guides are excellent, fluent in English, and have degrees in Egyptology. Therefore, are able to pretty much answer any questions about the different sites in Egypt, and have a wealth of knowledge on the mythology, legends, and lore behind the sites that you'll see. The guides can suggest recommended itineraries depending on your time, budget and general interests. Very informal, but professional when it comes to scheduling, planning and general demeanor. The price is right too! Again, highly recommend the group if you are planning travel to Egypt!

Best time for travel to Egypt is in the Fall/Spring. Tourist season in the river valley is during the winter timeframe, while tourists flock to Alexandria (on the Mediterranean) in the summer. The Pyramids in Giza and temples along the Nile near Luxor, Aswan are defn worth the visit!
