Fantastic Tour of Luxor

I have just been on a brilliant tour of Luxor with Nermeen. She gave me an excellent overview of the history helping me make sense of the incredible history around me. She interspersed this with humourous historical tales and pointed out small details which always grabs my interest.

I would highly recommend her to anyone that wants to see the many sights of Luxor – she even used her contacts after to ensure that I had a traditional and delicious dinner to finish off my tour.

Two day Luxor trip with Galal Ahmed
The company was very professional and catered to our needs as we altered our two day trip. They were prompt communicators via email. The driver pricked us up at the expected time and was ready with water and anything else we needed for the trip to Luxor. There we met Galal who spoke excellent English and had a tour organised which made sense and his guidance throughout the temples and tombs was excellent. He left time for us to explore and did not bombard us with information unless we wanted him to. The hotel was excellent and he even checked us in. The lunches were are traditional restaurants and tasted great even for vegetarians. The time he spent with us made it very much worth the money we spent. I’d recommend this trip to anyone interested in Egypt, especially from a historical perspective.

Overall we had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend this tour company to others! The company booked us very last minute (the night before departure) and was very responsive to us. We were a bit worried about being ripped off since we booked so last minute with an online company but were not disappointed. No scams, fair price and excellent service! We just have some suggestions and bits of information that we wish we’d known in advance:
1) The drive from Marsa Alem is over 6 hours! Our resort was about half an hour south of Marsa Alem so it took us almost 7 hours total, which we weren’t expecting! There is a shorter route but the road is off limits to tourists so you have to drive really far north. From Hurghada the drive is only about 4 hours. We left the resort at around 5:30 am, arrived in Luxor a bit past noon where we picked up our guide and then arrived at our first stop around 12:30. 2) The car is a regular sedan car. It was comfortable and had air-conditioning but we were expecting a private minibus. Also the air-conditioning is only in the front of the car so while the driver was cold, we were still really hot in the back. He was willing to turn it on but he was clearly uncomfortable. 3) Our driver Mahmoud was very friendly but he didn’t speak much English so we couldn’t ask any questions along the way. He also drove very fast which was appreciated since it took so long to get there, but as someone who gets car sick it was a bit rough and I arrived feeling very dizzy. 4) Request a schedule that works for you. The tour company and guide were very responsive and seemed to be quite flexible to our needs but we didn’t realize how hot, tired and hungry we would be upon arrival. We arrived in the heat of the day and went straight to Karnak and were not in the best shape to start an intense tour right away. We would suggest that if you are coming all the way from Marsa Alem to ask that you first do lunch, then hotel check-in to freshen up and then do your tours in the later afternoon and evening.) 5) The evening light show at Karnak was underwhelming. We didn’t think it was worth the 30Euro but it is nice to see it lit up at night. It is basically an audio recording of the history in story form. Our tour guide gave a much better and more historical guide when we visited earlier during the daytime. 6) We stayed at the Steigenburger hotel which was really nice. The breakfast buffet was excellent. Only negative was wifi was extra cost, you might want to ask for a hotel where it’s included if that’s important for you. 7) Our guide was Ayman. He spoke great English and was very friendly and helpful. He is an Egyptologist and provided detailed informative tours of all the attractions. He was very patient with us and made us feel welcome. I’m sure it must be difficult having to repeat the same information to different people every day but we did sometimes hear the same information/story multiple times because he’d forgotten that he’d told us already. We tried to hint that he’d already told us but he didn’t catch on and kept going in great detail. He speaks very loudly which for us was a bit too much at times. We didn’t know how to tell him this without being rude and he was really passionate so we just went with it. 8) The lunch restaurant on the island across the Nile had great food and a beautiful view. They had a caged crocodile and wolves for tourists, which we didn’t like. We would encourage them to release the animals and that future tourists express their distaste of this practice since they only have them there as an attraction for tourists. 9) Do the nighttime carriage ride, you wont regret it! We were skeptical this was a gimmick but read in another review how great this was and we’d have to agree. The city comes to life at night and the ride through the market is a unique experience you can’t get any other way. 10) If you are still early in your trip planning we’d recommend flying to Luxor or Aswan and doing the Nile river cruise and skipping Marsa Alem and the long drive. This tour company has lots of different options and if you tell them your preferences they will be very accommodating and helpful!


“Excellent Value for a real Historic Experience.”
No trip to Upper Egypt would be complete without at least trying to see some of the truly great and historic monuments and temples. With that in mind I managed to find recommendations via Tripadvisor for “Egypt Tours Portal” who offered a personal 2 day trip to Luxor in our own private car and with our own experience Egyptologist as a guide for a mere £150pp.

Our driver, Hassan Ali, collected 5:30am and was so cheerful from the start we just knew the 4hr+ journey to Luxor was going to be enjoyable. For those that might worry about their safety in Egypt, let me assure you that this is something the Egyptian authorities take very seriously and we felt very assured as Hassan explained that throughout the journey we would be tracked along the route to make sure we were safe.
Like many non-European countries, driving standards leave much to be desired, but Hassan was the composite professional throughout. As speed crazy coaches overtook us (sometimes on blind bends) he simply pulled back to make sure there was no chance of being involved in any mishap. Likewise when two local minibus taxi’s sandwiched us whilst going over a couple of the many speed humps, while most drivers would have gunned the engine to leave these slow workhorses standing, Hassan once again showed utmost professionalism by dropping back to let them fight it out for the single lane road ahead.

Arriving at Karnak Temple we were met by the equally pleasant Ayman Abdou who we later discovered had spent 4 years at university to gain his qualification as an Egyptologist. Greeting us warmly, he once again outlined the itinerary for the two day tour and allowed us to make any alterations which might better suit us. We were to see some fantastic sites which included Karnak Temple, a Papyrus Gallery, Luxor Temple by night, The Valley of the Kings, a Stone Carving Workshop & Shop at Abou El Hagege, Qurna, Hatshepsut Temple and Colossi of Memnon.

As our journey back in time began at the great Temple of Karnak we were amused to see little parties of tourist trailing behind tour guides with their little flags in hand, some poor devils hardly able to hear what they were saying above the clatter and chatter from the throng around them. Ayman was not like many other tour guides, although he had his historic spiel we rehearsed with the injection of good humour, he was able to field our questions at will and even discuss some of the more philosophical points raised throughout our many site visits. It was no wonder more than once we found our lessons in Egyptian history being ear wigged by other tourists fed up of not being able to keep up with their own tour guides 🙂 It was sad to see so many just there to tick their “been there” list and take “selfies”, clearly missing out on the ornateness and sheer size of this ancient temple complex.
After over 3hrs at Karnak, mentally exhausted from the influx of the fascinating & spiritual history of the many Pharaohs, Gods and Shrines, we visited a Papyrus Gallery to see (and buy) some highly decorative a Papyrus pictures. No doubt we could have got Papyrus pictures elsewhere but your first trip will always be memorable and we wanted something special. Next we retired early to room 2057 of the Mercure Hotel which overlooked the Nile for some much needed recuperation.

Keen to see some of the REAL Luxor, we had asked Ayman to arrange an extra horse cartridge ride around Luxor. We were not to be disappointed by our carriage driver ‘Ali’ who’s cheeky chappie was so reminicient of a cockney cab driver. Over the moon that we wanted to see the “Real Luxor” he happily included the back roads and alleys, explaining all the way some of the real history of Luxor and it’s people. The trip included an amazing trip straight through the main Souk, a path you’d find it hard to navigate 2 tesco trolleys let alone a horse & carriage but what a sight and so many people just happy to see westerners happy to visit their country and spend much needed western cash to boost the Egyptian economy. The ride lasted well over the schedules hour and ended with us meeting Ayman in a local coffee shop for a break before our night view of the great Luxor Temple. The nights can be cold here so we were wise to have taken fleeces.

Well but delicacy lit, Luxor Temple looks stunning at night and once again Ayman was the font of all knowledge. The link between Karnak & Luxor is not appreciated by many and the historic if slight differences need to be seen to be really appreaciated. This was followed by some much needed sustenance and Ayman treated us to a fantastic meal ‘El Hussein’ Restaurant, very popular amongst even local Egyptians for it’s fantastic food. Returning to the Mercure Hotel well after 9pm we were exhausted if still somewhat exhilarated.

Early breakfast the following day was followed by the journey to The Valley of the Kings. Another very spiritual place well worth the visit. Although not allowed to escort us into the tombs Ayman pointed out before entering each of our three tombs just what to look for. Photos are not allowed so it was quite disappointing to see some still intent of taking “selfies” with their camera phones and wasting the opportunity to soak up some history by merely “window shopping” through the still highly decorated tomb passages and anterooms to the burial chambers. The Tombs are truly astonishing.

After a short stop to see a Stone Carving Workshop at Abou El Hagege, Qurna we travelled on to another of Egypt’s great monuments Hatshepsut Temple or to give it it’s proper name the “Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut” We were surprised to discover that the Polish Academy of Sciences was responsible for the study and restoration of the three levels of the temple and they have done a remarkable job. Again it’s vastness and spirituality was breathtaking and spoiled only slightly by the “been there” list tickers and “selfie” brigade. Another quick stop at the Colossi of Memnon followed and although not as impressive as the previous sites they were still worth the visit.

Lunch overlooking the Nile at the “African” restaurant was a very pleasant affair, again with local Egyptian dishes to build our sustenance ready for the 4hr+ drive. However no trip to Luxor is complete without at least a little boat ride on the Nile itself and our sail across the Nile was short but memorable.

Exhausted, Hassan’s once again ferried us back to our hotel in Hurghada, safely, professionally and with such good humour and totally understanding our knackerness at such an exhausting and exhilarating two day trip back into some of Egypt’s history.

Thank you Egypt Tours Portal for arranging such a incredible tour and our special thanks to two very special guys, driver Hassan Ali and tour guide Ayman Abdou for the way they looked after us and for their friendship. Can not recommend these guys highly enough to other who will hopefully follow in our footsteps.

“Great tour company. ”
Booked a 2 day trip to Luxor online via the website. Quick response to my emails and questions. The driver picked us at our hotel bang on time. Nice comfy car, polite and helpful driver. 3 and a half hours later we were in Luxor and met our guide Sam.
He was very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Answered all our questions we had on both days. After seeing the temples on the east side we were taken to our hotel which was lovely as well. Day 2 we did the West Bank of Luxor which included the valley of the kings. Both days we had lunch included (except drinks) in 2 different restaurants but both were nice. We ended this with a boat trip on the Nile.
Sam was lovely and we couldn’t of asked for a better tour guide. We would highly recommend this company.

“Amazing trip to Luxor – September 2015”

Just got back from two weeks in Marsa Alam, Egypt and must write a review for Egypt Tours Portal. Whilst in Marsa, we decided to book a two day trip to Luxor and so checked on the internet and fired off a few emails to various companies for quotes and itineraries. After reviewing all the responses, we opted for Egypt Tours Portals and am really i glad we did.

The trip and service was amazing. We were picked up (very early in the morning) in a modern air conditioned car and taken to Luxor (got there in just over three hours !! but very safely driven.) To cut a long story short, in the two days, we saw Karnak temple, Luxor temple at night, valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut Temple, Colossi of Memnon, had a hot air balloon ride overlooking Luxor and the desert at dawn (amazing !!) Had a trip down the Nile for lunch on day one, and in a veranda restaurant over looking Luxor temple across the river for day two. The Sonesta St Georges Hotel was wonderful and right on the Nile. For a small fee, we asked an upgrade to a Nile facing room and were treated to a wonderful sunset over looking the west bank and Hatshepsut Temple.

Every time we came out of one of the attractions, Ahmed, our driver was there with the aircon and car waiting. Our guide, Mohammad, was excellent company and extremely knowledgeable about all the places we visited. There was no pressure on time and we spent as little or as long as we wanted in each area. What was even more impressive was that the itinerary was flexible and Mohammad was happy to change anything if we wished both in terms of the itinerary or order of visits.

The two days were amazing and we cannot thank Egypt Tours Portal, Ahmed and Mohammad enough for a truly fantastic and memorable experience.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Egypt Tours Portal for service and safety as well as great value. There is a reason they are top of of Tripadvisor ratings. They are excellent !!
