Karnak temple was amazing...
Paul_G, Mar 2024

Awesome Visit to Luxor
anabelcbautista, Dec 2023
My husband and I had the most amazing time on this trip from start to finish. We would like to give more than 5 stars if we could.😊 Egypt Voyage and Team were wonderful! They made our trip to Egypt more memorable . Their communication was excellent! Mr. Ali reached out to us a couple of times before the trip to make sure everything was fine. Pick up was prompt and Eid , our Driver , was nice and pointed out important locations on our way to Hurghada to meet the bus. Our Tour Guide, Eslam was excellent and very pleasant , ready to answer all our questions. Ahmed , our Driver, and Mohammad were patient and wonderful. Roman, our Local Tour Guide , was very knowledgeable and explained everything to us in detail . He did not make us feel rushed at all. The buffet lunch at the Hawaiian Restaurant was delicious. They offered different kinds of Egyptian food. The boat ride along the Nile River going to the Valley of the Kings was a treat! All in all, it was awesome, we had so much fun and it was a perfect day. Thank you very much! We will recommend Egypt Voyage to our family and friends.
A trip I will never forget
Amanda_K, Sep 2023
I wouldn't recommend travelling by bus as it took 5 hrs each way. Plane would be my preference next time even if more expensive. Picked up from hotel at correct time, travel guide was excellent. At Luxor the new guide wasn't there to meet us abd we had yo wait 25mins in 46 degree temperatures. He raced us around Karnok Temple, shouting for us to hurry up. I myself have a knee and leg problem and 2 ladies in our group had a walking aid! For the whole of the tour he seemed to be racing around, not allowing us time to take the pictures we needed. Visiting Luxor is a once in a lifetime chance for us and we wanted to enjoy it. He even asked if we could use our credit card to pay for the whole group to enter Valley of the Kings as his card " didn't have enough credit". This I found totally unprofessional! He was very knowledgeable and chatty and did slow down towards the end of the tour. I was pleased I went on this tour and would use Viator again, but the guide needs to appreciate the age group of the people pn his tour and the ability to walk in that 46 degree heat.
Loved it !!
Daniella, Sep 2023
Really wonderful experience! We felt well taken care of, the schedule was great, food and bus were nice and everything went smoothly. Abduuuuuul was a very welcoming, kind and entertaining guide. Potential negatives: I would have preferred more historical insight as part of the tour because the sights don't have many signs. Also, everything goes very quickly when there's money involved - so just be prepared to consider whether you actually want this extra amenity on offer or not, and make sure to ask for any applicable discounts when they collect money for the museum tickets (e.g. student).
the excursion was...
Denitsa_N, Mar 2023
the excursion was amazing, we were very satisfied, we will certainly trust them another time. Luxor is incredibly beautiful it's worth a visit
Elitsa_G, Mar 2023
It was excellent. They picked us up on time with a nice new mini bus. The guide was friendly and good. We had a nice lunch, a boat trip and we visited all listed in the add. They were looking after us. No issues at all.
Tiring experience
Antoine_B, Dec 2022
To see Karnak temple and a couple of famous tombs. Lunch in between was too speedy and too crowded. Mixing Russian and English speaking guides was not a good idea. Our guide was not eloquent enough and the tourist bus was jam packed with no aeration on it.
Nice day trip to explore Luxor
Fabian_P, Nov 2022
Even though the bus trip is long, the tour lets you experience all the cultural and historical sites of Luxor including Karnak, the valley of the kings, etc.
Communication and travel...
Chris_T, Aug 2022
Communication and travel one star!! Was only told of pick up 12 hours before. Taxi arrived half hour late. Were told we were being picked up to then go on a bus, mini van arrived and then wert straight to Luxor. Was having panic attacks because we didn't know who was picking us up and if we were even on the right taxi. Eventually arrived at Luxor, sights were incredible and tour guide very helpful. Please, communicate better and respond to questions!
Late pickup—Unimpressive
Jacques_B, Aug 2022
Not impressed with this trip. It started badly when the pickup was an hour late. The tour operators appeared to be conducting some sort of scam with tickets, asking children to under report their age, sending in two people on one ticket, and asking for the original paper tickets to be returned to them for some reason. Also wasn't impressed that people on the same bus, taking exactly the same trip as us had paid less. This is also dishonest pricing. We didn't get to see the colossi of Memnon because of timing issues. The hard sell on an 'optional' extra at the end that required extra payment was also not welcome.
Jennifer_S, Jun 2022
This experience was out of this world. It was so well organised, the guides were knowledgeable not only on the places we went but on tourists. We were given the information we needed and Theban given time to go off and take photos and given the opportunity to ask questions. This was perfect, not everyone wants a full history so being able to go and see things and take photos while others stayed to ask questions was just perfect. We weren’t rushed around, everything was explained in advance. I have nothing but praise for this experience. It was perfect!
Bitterly disappointed!!!
Lauren_N, May 2022
We awaited our pick up and no one turned up. From 4.15am we waited and tried calling but there was no answer and still no one showed up. Very disappointed in this as I have still had no contact despite emailing asking for an explanation!
Great tour
Seher_S, Apr 2022
Food was horrible and restaurant was not near the Nile as stated. It’s by sand. Did not state tutukarman. Better air con needed in the bus
Excellent excursion with...
RichardGraham_C, Mar 2022
Excellent excursion with first class guidance from Mohammed at Luxor. Only improvement suggestion would be a larger coach with sufficient legroom .
Well organized but a shameful attraction at the end
Nicolas_M, Mar 2022
The trip was well organized. Due to the high amount of Russian people in our bus, we only had a Russian guide in our bus. Later-on, when approaching Luxor, an English speaking guide joined us and we had some explanation as well. The lunch was very basic and not recommendable (but included). Our biggest frustration was that the guide extended our trip with a boat trip to "crocodile island" for 10 euro per person. It was not obliged but if we didn't do this, we had to wait for 1 hour on the bus until the others were back. That's blackmail. On top of that, crocodile island was nothing more than a couple of shops, 5 monkeys in a cage and 2 crocodiles in a poor sink. Really shameful. They shouldn't do that. The trip to Luxor was fine until that point. A pity that they screwed up the trip at the end. It gave us a bad feeling.
Thanks for a wonderful day in Luxor
Stefan_B, Mar 2022
We had an amazing day with our great guide Osama! He made the whole tour so much more fun and interesting. All the little details and facts about Egyptian history have been so insightful. The whole trip was good organized and we can recommend this type of tour and especially our German tour guide Osama!
Excellent with minor issues
Mark_K, Feb 2022
Excellent trip. Very well organized. The guide was very helpful and full of local knowledge. Expect a long bus journey if your pickup point is Hurghada. We were accompanied by, what seemed, armed government security which made us feel very safe travelling across the desert. Hot Meal provided and fresh fruit while crossing the Nile which was much appreciated. We recommend not to visit crocodile island as we felt it should not be an attraction due to the animal welfare issues. Overall, excellent trip and great value for Money.
Great sightseeing
Laura_g, Feb 2022
Day didn’t start great as they told us 4.30am and didn’t pick us up till 5.15! There was no communication of this. the long journey there was made even longer with the check points which seem a little strange as nothing really happens just makes big queues. The tour guide was great once in Luxor , he was so helpful with our autistic daughter and really knowledgeable . The sights were busy but great. You could spend weeks there and not see it all. The lunch was mediocre however was in a nice location. Drinks aren’t included but not silly prices. The boat across the Nile was a nice touch. Valley of the kings and hatephsut temple were fabulous to see. Ticket gets you 3 tombs, you can’t choose which 3 it’s which are open. Apparently it changes often to stop wear on them. The journey back was long and boring and the constant loud music was a little annoying. Overall fabulous sights to see
Would not wish upon my worst enemy
Alia_A, Nov 2021
NOT IN A MINIVAN. The trip was nothing as described in the trip details on the website. We felt extremely cheated and deceived. 6 hours into the trip and we still weren't even on our way to Luxor. The bus continuously stopped every 10 minutes to pick people up along the coast line. The MASSIVE tour bus was fully booked and masks are not required. We took the first bus back to El Gouna at the first rest stop. We were offered a refund, but as expected, we have received nothing.
