Our trip to Egypt was a tale that saga's are written about. Our trip to Luxor, a life experience that will be forever remembered and loved due to this trip. Upon arriving at Cairo, we were shorted a piece of luggage and this tour which had not yet begun had some potential issues. I made a decision to go forward and trust in the company to make it all work out and they did beyond my wildest dreams. The first thing we ran into was not being able to return the same day. This caused some stress because I had no clothes and our next tour started very early in the morning. Mr. Magdy totally set it up so that we stayed in a great hotel, had great seats on the trip back and we actually arrived back in Cairo on time and were reunited with our luggage that finally made it. For all the back office nightmares that were quickly and professionally resolved and communicated I am deeply grateful to Mr. Magdy! Upon our arrival at Luxor, Ahmed greeted us at the luggage area and escorted us out to our van. Clean, roomie, wifi and just all around thumbs up for a our transportation for the day. We drive along for a bit were we swapped out Ahmed for Ahmed the tour guide and that is when the fun really began! I will state that if you are a nervous person in a car, while driving in Egypt sit in the back with the shades drawn! WOW! The drivers bring a new kind of crazy, but our driver was up to the task and through all the chaos delivered us to all our destinations unharmed and no worse for wear. Our Egyptologist Ahmed Mounir is an amazing person. When we travel, we seek to find out what the world we have seen on tv or the internet is really like from the people that live there and Ahmed brought a triple AAA rating in this department. Knowledgeable, passionate and extremely customer centric, Ahmed took us to a place within the places that upon reflection, still makes my hairs stand up on end. Ahmed took us through professionally and with a very personalized touch to all things within the program at a great pace that allowed for time to observe, absorb and reflection upon and still stay on pace for the next site. To quote this amazing guide Karnak is Egypt! to understand this statement, the only thing I can say is book this tour, request Ahmed and get ready to have your mind blown away and overloaded with insight, information and just plain AWE!
When the day ended, we were completely wiped out, drowning in information overload and knew that we had experienced a once in a life time adventure that will stay with us forever. I cannot recommend this company, this tour and this Egyptologist Dr Ahmed Mounir!
The private guided day trip to Luxor from Cairo by plane 1 hr flight was the highlight of our Egypt trip. Viator travel made this experience so stress free for us that we can't say enough of how the whole experience has left us nothing but great memories of our excursion to Luxor. From the moment a Viator rep picked us up from our Cairo hotel on time in fact, dropping us off at Cairo airport, handling our plane tickets so that we didn't have to stand in line, to another Viator rep waiting for us at Luxor airport and transporting us to our designated hotel which was the beautiful Sonesta Hotel and making sure we were checked in and comfortable, to having our driver pick us up in the morning for our journey to meet up with our private Egyptologist guide and begin our excursion to see the incredible ancient archaeological sites was just phenomenal. The whole logistical experience was handled with so much efficiency that we highly recommend using Viator. The only thing that we regret is that one day in Luxor was not enough to really see and appreciate the ancient wonder of Luxor and the surrounding archaeological monuments, tombs, temples, statues and it's mysteries.
