Beware! My Luxor tour guide was a scam artist.
Oct. 2019
The only reason I'm giving this tour 2 stars (and not 1) is because the sights are simply stunning, so it would be unfair to Egypt to label this experience as 'terrible'.
Unfortunately, from here on, things only go downhill. My tour guide Laila (maybe I'm slightly misspelling her name) was, not even 5 minutes after I joined her and the driver, trying to sell me other tours and insisting I buy souvenirs/products from people she knew. First, she tried to sell me a tour to Alexandria for the exorbitant price of $230 (USD). After I complained about the price (I had already done my research and the most expensive Alexandria private tour I found -from Cairo- was $100), she makes a call and suddenly the Alexandria tour is now $160... what a 'great deal', right? Then there's the Saqqara/Memphis tour. First she offered it to me at $100. However, a call or two later, the tour was now $60 with entrance fees to the sites and lunch NOT included. I ultimately booked another operator and paid $55 for the same tour with entrance fees AND lunch included! See where I'm going with this? Later on, at lunchtime, a new 'attraction' not on the tour schedule appeared: a boat ride, from one side of the river to the other, for $30. I fell into the trap and paid for it. I realized too late I had been scammed. I felt terrible. And all of this time, between one site to the next and while on the boat, she would insist (time and again, overwhelmingly) for me to book the Alexandria and Saqqara/Memphis tours. She would always say she was just 'trying to help'. I was in such disbelief by what was going on that I had no option other than to call her out and ask her to stop asking me to book any other tour of hers. She then got all shaky and begged me not to tell her boss or anyone about anything. Clearly, she didn't want her fraudulent scheme to be exposed. As you can see, it didn't work. I could type hundreds, if not thousands more characters to expand on my uncomfortable experience, but I think by now you've got the idea. Bottom line is, while it seems there are honest and professional tour guides at ImperialEgypt (as you can see from the reviews), you may still be unlucky enough to get one that makes a living out of cheating and lying. My suggestion is to take note of those tour guides' names with glowing reviews and make sure or even request you're with one of them. Thanks for reading and hope you enjoy Egypt!

Best of Luxor!
This activity its simply the best way to get around Luxor, with a very knowledgeable guide (Amr) ! Its an easy way to see the best of Luxor in a day! Not only we got to see some amazing views but we learnt a bit history which makes the trip more fun and understandable :) Im more than satisfied with it and it’s a must do if youre visiting Egypt, it’s not all about the pyramids ;)

Great time in Luxor
Ask for Hedy— he was an awesome tour guide who facilitated our whole day. Hedy’s knowledge and enthusiasm for Egyptian history and the local sights was impressive. The lunch was very nice with a great view of the Nile. Hedy was attentive to our needs in the heat of the day and our need for water and he even surprised us with opportunity for some ice cream. The relatively new AC van was very comfortable and the driver was careful and professional. We had a great and memorable day. Remember to ask for Hedy for your Luxor tour. Thanks for a great time.

Mostafa - best tour guide!
Jul. 2019 • Solo
He was very patient and knowledgeable about the history of ancient Egypt. We visited the temple of Hatshepsut, the Valley of the King, and the Karnak Temple in a private AC van. As a female solo traveler, Mostafa made an effort to make my experience as smoothly as possible. When I encountered problematic security guard at the Valley of the King, he was so kind to help me out without an expectation of money return.

If you are a fan of unique and unparalleled souvenirs, be sure to visit the high end gift shops where they sell handcrafted stone statues and handmade papyrus painting. Completley worth the slightly expensive price.

Highly recommended Mostafa as the tour guide to anyone who travels to Luxor!

Had a great day out with Hoda!
Our day tour started at 8am. To be honest, we got a bit worried when we didn't receive any reply from the tour operator the day before. But around 7am+, Hoda called to confirm she's on her way to our Airbnb apartment with the driver. Tour includes Egyptian buffet lunch but not admission tickets. Since we were staying on the West Bank, we had to take a ferry back on our own. That was fine since it gave us time to chill at a coffee place and walk around the East Bank leisurely after the tour. We covered A LOT in one day which was great. Hoda is very knowledgeable and can speak English fluently.

For reference, these were the additional admission fees per pax:
1. Valley of the Kings 200 EGP + 4 EGP (tram ticket)
2. Temple of Queen Hatshepsut 100 EGP + 4 EGP (tram ticket)
3. Karnak Temple 150 EGP
4. Luxor Temple 140 EGP

Enjoy your day tour! Stay hydrated.

Fantastic - a truly amazing day
Mar. 2019
We spent an incredible two days with our guide Laila - she is wonderful, friendly and unbelievably knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble. The tours she suggested were perfectly paced to our needs on each day, giving us enough free time to wonder and enjoy the amazing sites a bit on our own. We highly recommend Laila as a guide and the tour as a whole.

East and West Bank tour of luxor
Best tour ever, we used another company in Cairo but imperial tour is by far the best. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable and gave us great history of Luxor. We toured Valley Of The Kings, hatshetsup temple, Karnak and Luxor temple. Also had an amazing luch included that was all vegetarian as both my fiancé and me do not eat animal products. I’d give it 6 stars if it was an option! Best ever!

Couldn't be happier
Feb. 2019 • Solo
My guide, Hoda, could not have been more lovely- great attitude and a wealth of knowledge. She made sure I was comfortable and saw everything that I wanted to. The tour company agreed to pick me up from the airport which was fantastic because I was a solo, female traveler unfamiliar with Luxor. I was originally booked for a private tour but there was another traveler at the airport who's tour company left him behind in error so we happily welcomed him. Hoda helped him get ahold of his original tour company to sort things out. What a helpful, caring person- I cannot say enough good about her. Overall a great day, well spent. 10/10 would recommend.
