An amazing day
My daughter and I had the most amazing day with Roshdy - we could not have seen or experienced such history and splendour in the limited time without them. His knowledge was second to none and picked out all the best that we could only have imagined. Well worth doing- local knowledge is key 👍 5 star

Luxor Full Day Tour: Valley of Kings & Queens - Hatchepsut Temples And More
Great tour for an introduction to Luxor, our guide Hasan was super knowledgeable, helpful, was very well prepared and brought us to a great restaurant for lunch. The car was new and clean and the driver brought us safely and comfortably around. I definitely recommend it to all travellers, inclusive families! (we had a 1 yo and a 5 yo with us!)

Private Tour to Valley of the Queens, Valley of the Artisans, and Habu Temple
We were in Luxor and had already been to the Valley of the Kings so we wanted to visit a new site and found this tour -- we were really glad we did! The Valley of the Kings is quite amazing of course, but the Valleys of the Queens and Artisans is really special. Our first stop was at the Valley of the Artisans. There were very few tours there and we practically had it to ourselves. The tombs were built by the workers who made the Valley of the Kings but they were made for themselves, the artwork and detail is really good. The tombs are relatively small and you need to watch your head and be comfortable with stairs and narrow passages to enter them, but we loved how accessible it felt and how much more intimate it was than the bigger tourist attractions. And the artwork is amazing! From there we visited the Valley of the Queens and the main tombs there. They are really nice -- not as big or as intricate as the Kings ones but nice. Queen Nefertari's tomb is the big attraction here though -- it's quite expensive which is a surprise. Entry into the Valley of the Queens is only 100 EGP but entry to Nefertari's tomb is purchased separately and is 1,400 EGP alone! And your time in the tomb is restricted. If you can afford it though it's a must-see. The restoration of the tomb is thorough and it is considered by many (including me and my mom) as the best of the Egyptian tombs. The colors are vivid and the artwork and stories are wonderful. After the tombs we stopped at Habu temple. It's also a great site -- really nice and a huge temple. We were surprised at the size of it. Walid was our tour guide and we were very pleased to have him. I'd suggest asking for him if you have the option -- we did three tours through Viator while in Egypt and he was the best of our guides. He enjoyed what he did, didn't rush us or try to sell us things, and had great stories to tell!

Private Habu Temple, Valley of the Artisans, Valley of the Queens from Luxor
The 5 tombs we visited were in beautiful condition and we pretty much had them all to ourselves. It was also fascinating to see the artisan’s village where the common people lived and worked. The temples were breathtaking! Enjoyed this trip more than Valley of the Kings, to be honest. It was all made perfect by our lovely guide Nermeen Melad. She was very knowledgeable and was always pointing out interesting details to us. She also took us to do some extra shopping when requested and made sure we got a good price. Thank you Nermeen, you are awesome! It was a great time.

Shereen, the guide, and Ramez, the driver, were both wonderful. In addition to providing a seamless tour of the historical sites, they also shared their local perspective of Luxor. They were also nice enough to take me on some errands.

Great day tour to the West Bank! Roshdy is a great guide, we went to all the areas mentioned in the itinerary and he explained a lot of interesting things but also allowed me some free time to fake photos and walk around! Would definetely recommend this tour!

Private Tour to Valley of the Queens, Valley of the Artisans, and Habu Temple
I had the best time with Hesham, who is a very informative guide. He took me around at a very good pace, relaxed but thorough. Really great company who allowed me to add on a few other stops like the Tombs of the Nobles to complete my West Bank tour.

Private Tour Valley of the Kings and Queens and Hatshepsut Temple
Everything was good a few of the tombs were closed. The gift shop workers are very pushy and would not take a firm no for an answer. Wear dark shades so you don't have to look there way. Our guide was very knowledgeable. We felt very safe.

Day Tour Visit Habu Temple Valley Of Workers & QUeens in Luxor
I was amazed at how well this trip was coordinated. Summer, our guide in Luxor, was amazing!! She brings a wealth of knowledge and made our trip memorable. Our return flight to Cairo was a later flight than expected, so Summer gave us some suggestions of things to do to fill the time gap.

Luxor Full Day Tour: Valley of Kings & Queens - Hatchepsut Temples And More
Nice private tour took all the stress out of working out the ticketing and moving from site to site. My guide Barry was very good, knowledgeable and answering any question with out overloading me with too much information. Would highly recommend it. The tour was closer to 6 hours than 8 so it was expensive but I saw everything I wanted.

Private Tour: valley of the queens,Carter House,Temple of Seti, Ramesseum Temple
We stayed for 4 full days in Luxor and used this trip to supplement some of the other, more essential tours. The temples were interesting and certainly worth seeing, but we were pretty fascinated with the Carter House. Instead of seeing the Valley of the Queens, our tour guide recommended that we see the Tombs of the Nobles. We think this was a great decision, as we were able to visit two tombs that were fabulous. Both had excellent colors and were in great condition. It is a bit of a hike up to these tomb entrances, but well worth it! Our tour guide, Youssef, was wonderful and very flexible. He adapted well to our wishes to not repeat the entire history of ancient Egypt (since we had heard it 4-5 times by then) and to focus mainly on the things that we were seeing that day. He was flexibile and helped us make the most out of this tour. Thanks Youssef!
