Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Private Tour: Luxor West Bank, Valley of the Kings and Hatshepsut Temple. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
By the end you will know how to say Hatshepsut! It was so hot at the Valley of the Kings and the temple at Hatshepsut looks really quite modern but once you get up close it amazing that its 3000 years old.
Michael was great-- he was really knowledgeable about the history and geography of the area, and we got into some really wonderful political discussions. He is friendly, interesting, and his English is extremely good. I think the only downpoint of the trip was that instead of being able to add going to another temple, we had to go to an alabaster factory. Given that people will try to sell you stuff all over Egypt, it's not really my preference to have to sit through even more hawking of goods when I am trying to sightsee.
Our guide was terrific! The only reason I didn't give this a 5 star is because I wish that he had done something to deter all the touts. He left us on our own and when he was with us, he didn't speak to them either. He was extremely knowledgeable and we will certainly return to Egypt and us Viatours! Aloha, Pam
This trip was great. We saw so much and our guide was wonderful. He waited for us at the train station for 40+ minutes since we arrived on a later train than originally anticipated.
Our guide was helpful in explaining the sights. We felt that the tour ran a little short.

The tour guide was nice, we arranged to go at noon to avoid bus tours and we were lucky since it was cloudy. You get to go inside of three tombs on the Valley of the Kings, is very hot inside, just try to enjoy the amazing decoration. The guide should ask you if you want to stop at shops, we would have rather spend more time at the sites. The downside to the tour is that you are the one responsible of getting in touch with the local tour agent, phone calls from hotel are expensive, they should be the ones calling you to the hotel.
Private tour is recommended due to the late start and early return time compared to the ordinary tour. Excellent Egyptian guide and tour itinerary in Luxor.
Thank You Jasime was a very good guide we enjoyed ourselves.
Average guide, but great itinerary! We saw everything we wanted to see!
Good guide and driver, very informative and good spoken English.
Having your own guide and driver makes the trip very comfortable and easy. The guide was very knowledgeable though at times did appear that she was going through the motions. Was also taken to an alabaster 'factory' - and later discovered I paid well over the going rate for some canopic jars. Beware your guide may be receiving a commission.
