The local company used was excellent-there was a message for us when we arrived at our hotel with pick up and contact details. Michael-the local manager was efficient and polite. Our Egyptian guide was brilliant-we have done this trip twice before but we learnt so much more this time. We were a party of 5 and we had a minibus all to ourselves. Organisation faultless

This was a very good tour, well-arranged, punctual, and interesting.

Do not try to see Valley of the Kings on your own. it's quite a drive from Luxor and you could really get lost with the crowds of tourists, vendors, etc. The air conditioned van was so appreciated!! Our guide explained so much. We would have just been wandering around "looking at the pretty pictures" and instead we understood the heiroglyphs and statues that we saw. Loved it!

The drive was a bit tiring but we did get some sleep, and when we got to Luxor it was all worth it! The guide was fantastic and knew his history. When you got to the Valley of the Kings you will have a brilliant time! The paintings in the Tombs are breathtaking and the temple is beautiful! An experience that you wont forget!

This was great. We had a well-informed guide who was able to explain everything. I would definitely recommend visiting any Egyptian sites with a private guide, as you get to see all the important areas with good detailed desciptions of the history at your own pace. This tour is certainly a must.

Great trip and great guide. Our guide met us in the lobby and, although quiet, learned our group by the time we made it to the valley. She was informative and personable and very helpful. The valley is tremendous and too daunting on our own, but great with a guide. We visited Ramses IV, I, and IX, and were happy with the choices. Hatshepsut's Temple is highlight, one that we could see from our hotel on the East Bank. Colossi were memorable. Would like to have seen Rameseum or other tombs and temples, but not enough time. Highly recommended!

Valley of the Kings was amazing and so was Hatshepsut Temple. Our tour was great and very efficient pick up service. The tour guide was really knowledgeable and the private tour was the best way to visit these places and learn the history. I highly recommend this tour as it made the sightseeing a very personal experience. Our tour rep was also really helpful and we booked other tours and transfers easily through him whilst we were there. All the trips we did through this company were excellent.

We had a very knowledgeable guide. She knew answers to all the questions. This is a must see part of Egypt.
Fantastic tour guide - loved everything about Luxor and the tours.
Viator, AS ALWAYS, supplied a very knowledgeable guide-DO NOT go guideless as the history learned there is worth its wait in gold. Make sure to get a good night sleep the night before and combo this tour with the East Bank tour.

Fantastic tour guide friendly, knowledgeable and adaptable - - she even took us to a chemist to get antibiotics! Thank you SO much. I rate Luxor well above Cairo as a travel and historical destination, it is much more friendly and there is MUCH more to see and learn about. Again, be prepared for the heat - take lots of water and a sun hat.

Our guide was very good and had a world of information about the Valley of the Kings and the Temple. To go on your own would be very challenging!
Dawn H United Kingdom
Really good. Having our own very knowledgeable guide meant we got more out of the it and was far less frustrating than travelling in a large group. Well worth doing.
We booked a private tour so that we didn't have to hang around in the heat waiting for other people, and I'm so glad that we did. Our guide phoned the day before to ask us what time we wanted to start the tour - we opted for a 7am start in order to avoid the heat. She was extremely knowledgeable, and her English was excellent. The tour was amazing, and we were able to dictate how long we spent at each site. I would definitely recommend doing this tour if staying in Luxor.

The Valley of the Kings and Queen Hatshepsut's Temple are incredible. Our guide was fabulous. She was a wonderful person and knew a lot about Egyptian history. I highly recommend this tour coupled with a tour of the East Bank on the same day. The private van is great. I am sure the air conditioning is a blessing in the summer months. I was there in Jan.
Valley of the Kings was everything I always dreamed of seeing. The artwork is simply amazing. Just being in a place that has existed for so many millennia is awe-inspiring. I was a little disappointed in Hatshepsut's Temple, probably just because of seeing Valley of the Kings first. The Colossi of Memnon I could have missed. Our tour guide, Youla, was fantastic--very knowledgeable and personable.
