I am a travel agent that recently traveled to Egypt and used Luxor Travels for our trip to Luxor. I will HANDS DOWN be sending future clients on tours with this company. I’m a hard critic too. We fit SO much stuff into a short amount of time that I can’t believe how reasonable the price was. They were professional, knowledgeable, fun and incredibly friendly. They made us feel very safe as well! Their vehicles are incredibly clean and comfortable. Cannot say enough about them! Ragab was phenomenal! Highly highly recommend.

We throughly enjoyed our 3 days with Khalid. Given the pandemic the number of people at each site was much less than usual, it was very special.

Khalid is very knowledgeable and has a great command of the English language. It has been a long time since I had a tour guide who spoke such good English. We were very impressed, having a registered Egyptologist as your guide really makes a big difference.

The driver was also very kind, everything was well organized and the car was very comfortable. They really take very good care of their guests, wearing face masks at all times. Highly recommended!

We toured The Valley of the Kings, the Valley of the Queens, and the Karnak and Luxor Temples with Rajab. His familiarity with the area and years of experience meant we got in-depth explanations about the two sites and their history. He was willing to answer our many questions and we appreciated his sense of humor too. The whole tour went great and felt fair, though when we tipped the driver on the second day tried to demand an extra fee for the privilege of being dropped off at the end of the tour.

The tour was great. We did a two day tour of the sites of Luxor. Ahmed Awad was our tour guide, and he was a per wealth of knowledge and prospective. He not only showed us the site but helped to gain a better fundamental understanding of what we were looking at and why things were done in the matter in which they were.
The sites of Luxor are incredible and more then worth the cost of admission. The valley of the kings and huge and you could easily spend days at that location alone. The Karnak and Luxor sites are huge and really will make you question
what you think you understand of our ancient past. Once you have completed your tours, they can arrange for you to go to other sites or museums if you would like. The tour is very nice but the guide is what makes it.

We booked the tour online, once arrived in Luxor Mr. Ragab promptly informed us on the logistic of the tour. Ragab took us in the King’s Valley, Hatshepsut temple, the Luxor and Karnak temple. During our visit he explained to us the practices of ancient Egypt and ha also taught us how to read some of the Hieroglyphs! In addition, Mr. Ragab arranged for us the felluca ride at sunset and the hot air ballon flight at sunrise, both experiences are a must during your stay in Luxor! You will definitely fall in love with the city of Luxor and Mr. Ragab is the person will help you to discover every corner of it! I definitely recommend him! He is an accomplished guide and well prepared Egyptologist that will make your stay in Luxor a real life experience.

The tour and our guide Khalid was amazing.
Our transportation to Luxor was delayed and the company was lovely and picked us up from the new location and waited for us. Then we immediately headed to the West Bank to see the tombs in the Valley of the Kings and Hatshepsut Temple. Khalid provided us with some general history as well as information on the specific tombs we visited and provided excellent recommendations for extra tombs to visit.
The second day we started off at Karnak Temple and got there when it was cooler and less busy and learned about the giant complex before being allowed to walk around the complex by ourselves for a bit. Khalid stopped and translated some hieroglyphs for us too. Luxor Temple was the last stop and we were able to see the newly restored as the Avenue of Sphinxes.
Khalid was very helpful and keen to answer questions. He also has no problems stopping for extra breaks for A/C or the bathroom. They also had extra water in a cooler in the car for us.
Overall, would definitely recommend.

Amazing tour! We enjoyed every moment of the day with our tour guide Khaled. He was very knowledgeable and passionate about Egyptian history. Khaled was also patient, flexible and understands tourists needs. We got to know a lot about Egyptian culture and amazing Luxor temples. We can really recommend this tour to everyone who wants to avoid the hassle of organising the trip by themselves.

Khalid is an amazing guide, with a deep knowledge of Egyptology, who can answer any and all questions that you have about the sites. His masters degree is in Hieroglyphics, and he taught us how to read them, and was more than happy to interpret any that we had questions about. He also allowed us to take our time at each site, and at no point did we feel rushed. Overall we had an amazing time and this tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Egypt. And Khalid knows the best (and most creative) photo spots!

Ahmed was a awesome tour guide! He is full of knowledge. I asked him multiple questions throughout our tour and he was able give us good insight. Has great passion for Egyptian culture. He is fluent in German and English. Had him do a small piece for my German mother-in-law and he was all for it! Provided great advice and recommendations. Also, he is a great photographer! If you’re looking for a tour guide/photographer ask for Ahmed he will get the best angles.

We had Mohamed as our driver. He provided great service. Was always really diligent to be ready to pull the car around and pick us up from the different sites.

Thank you.

Wow what an amazing 3 days we had with Khalid! We visited all the major sights in Luxor together with Khalid and had an amazing experience! Khalid (our guide) was incredibly knowledgeable, kind and entertaining while describing the wonders of ancient Egypt to us. He gave us valuable insight on the past as well as reflecting on the Egypt of today. Our driver and car were also great, and the level of English of both guide and driver were excellent. They also helped us organize our PCR test and took me to a pharmacy when I was unwell from the food. We learned so much and will certainly be recommending this private tour to our family and friends!
