1 Day a Luxor

It was our first visit to Egypt and and it was amazing with breathtaking structures and historic places. One of the highlights was the trip to Luxor which was amazing with a professional tour guide Mr Marian. She was well informed about Egyptian history and gave us many insights to the tombs and the places we visited. Kudos to Egypt Tour Portals for the well managed trip.

Cairo-Luxor day trip
My trip started in Cairo by being picked up to the minute(0415) by the driver, taken to the airport and flew Egypt Air to Luxor. I was picked up by a car and guide(Nermeen) who took me to see all of the sights in Luxor and the Valley of the Kings.

Nermeen was extremely knowledgeable and was able to put the extraordinary art and engineering accomplishments I saw into historical context.

I will recommend Egypt Tours Portal and Nermeen to friends and family.

I found Egypt a great place to visit( I have been here for 10 days )and think most Americans would too.

Found Egypt Portals through various reviews and was impressed by its excellent rating. Ahmad was very helpful and our tour guides, Galal in Luxor and Aswan and Reham in Cairo are exceptional Egyptologists who are passionate about their history. It was a very enjoyable trip. We feel very safe and well looked after. Very smooth and hassle free. Wonderful wonderful experience.

1 day trip to Luxor (valley of the kings, Karnak, etc)

We were spending our holidays in Marsa Alam and decided to book the 1 day trip to Luxor to see some Egyptian cultural sites. After a long and tiring trip, Mahmoud really made us feel great during the whole visit: explained everything, showed us the main sites, provided cold water, juice, even ice cream (really appreciated 🙂 ). Also the lunch by the nile was very nice (good Egyptian food). We didn’t have much time to visit Luxor, but this 1 day trip was the perfect choice to see the most important sites and have a nice time away from our resort.

Luxor and the Valley of the Kings
I wasn’t initially planning to go to Luxor but I am so glad that I did. My guide Aymen with Egypt portal was excellent and enthusiastic. He gave wonderful and detailed explanations of the sights. The sites were mind blowing and it exceeded all of my expectations. I highly recommend this tour company and Aymen especially. He made sure I was comfortable and tailored everything according to what I wanted. Do not miss this wonderful day trip

I booked this one-day trip from Marsa Alam to Luxor online before departing to Egypt.
The whole process of booking with Egypts Tours Portal and staying in touch with the agency is clear and simple – we basically discussed everything by exchanging a few e-mails and the representative of the tourist agency would always respond to my messages very quickly.
On the day of the trip me and my mother were both collected by the driver, who arrived on time at the main entrance of our hotel. The standard journey from Marsa Alam to Luxor takes a little over 4 hours, however ours took over 6 due to unexpected car breakdown on our way there – we were stuck in the middle of the desert and had to wait for the replacement of the car battery. It was a little inconvenient but the driver did apologise for the situation and did the best he could to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.
When we finally arrived in Luxor, we were greeted by a very friendly and approachable guide whose name is Ayman. He is such a great guide – not only knowledgeable but also enthusiastic, kind and really willing to share with his customers all that passion he has for ancient Egypt and it`s history. Ayman showed us around the Great Temple of Amun, Mut and Chonsu in Karnak, pointing to us the most important parts of this huge religious complex with it`s processional route, sequence of courts embellished with obelisks, shrines and altars. The most amazing part of the temple is undoubtedly the vast hypostyle hall – a room so grand in style and size, it strikes you into silence. Wish we had more time to explore this wonderful temple of god Amun in more detail. However the time is limited – one simply can not see everything during one day, so we had to move on. After leaving the Karnak Temple we enjoyed a very tasty lunch on the rooftop of the local restaurant, which had beautiful views over the Nile river. Next we were taken to the famous Valley of the Kings – the final resting place for many of Egypt`s Great Pharaohs. Once again our guide shared his passion for the history of this place with us and gave us little hints on the subject of visiting three different tombs.
Later we also visited the most famous funerary temple built for Queen Hatshepsut – the female Pharaoh as well as Colossi of Memnon – two massive stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III – the only remains of his funerary temple, located on the west bank of the river Nile.
We also had some time for taking photos and buying some gifts in the local workshop, before saying good bye to our guide and departing back for Marsa Alam.
Fortunately our journey back was free from any obstacles.
It was an enjoyable experience for both me and my mother – we love the history of Egypt and hope to come back to the Valley of the Nile in not to distant future.

1-day Luxor tour
My friend and I had a wonderful time touring Luxor. Our tour guide, Ayman Abdou, was very knowledgeable and informative. He was practically a walking encyclopedia and was able to answer all of our questions and made the tour very engaging and exciting. Both he and our driver were very hospitable and always made sure that we were comfortable. Not to mention, my friend and I both felt very safe in Egypt. Although we heard news about the Egypt being dangerous, police and security were tight, which was comforting for both of us. The Egyptian people were all so welcoming and lovely, and we honestly couldn’t have asked for a better experience in Luxor – we’ll definitely be back again!

1 day Luxor tour
I had a good time in the Luxor day tour. Ayman Abdou was very informative and knowledgeable of the history of the kings. The people of Luxor were very friendly and felt safe. We were able to explore most of Luxor in that day.

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!

“Luxor trip”
Semy was a great guide. He provided us with an enormous amount of information about both modern and ancient Egypt. We booked a private tour from hurghada for a great price. One last thing, the included lunch was very good. We had a seat with a view of the Nile, and the food itself was very good as well, not like one of the tourist traps that are so often included in these types of organized tours.

“Memorable day out with “Egypt Tours Portal””
We would highly recommend a private trip with “Egypt Tours Portal”
We were picked up at the hotel in a private car at 05.00hrs and driven 3.5 hours to Luxor where we collected our personal Egyptology expert, who spent the day with us.
We visited the necropolis of the ancient city of Thebes, then went on to the Valley of the Kings where we visited Ramesses III tomb, Ramesess VI tomb, Tutankhamun’s tomb and stood right next to the mummy of Tutankhamun and we also visited Ramesses I tomb
We then went onto the Valley of the Queens and visited the amazing Temple of Hatshepsut
After this we went to Luxor for a traditional Egyptian lunch on the terrace of nice restaurant overlooking the Nile. Then our guide took us on a private boat trip along the Nile, sailing gently passed the Winter Palace, whilst watching the children swim in the Nile.
We spent the afternoon at Karnak Temple. This is an must see. It is absolutely fantastic and steeped in thousands’ of years of history
We finished with a drive back through the desert at sunset
Our driver was very experience and our Egyptology guide was excellent and spoke perfect English. You really need an Egyptology guide to understand the history around the wonderful sights you see
A great day out – thanks Guys
