The operators of the tour contacted on WhatsApp right after the booking was conformed. They were flexible with our schedule regarding arriving and so forth. They offered extras and were not pushy. They checked daily for our satisfaction with the guide, vehicle, and driver. The guide and driver were knowledgeable, informative, willing to help and offered help even for issues that were not part of the tour. We had a wonderful two days and would recommend to anyone wanting to check Luxor off their bucket list.
