Highlight of our visit to Egypt
Nov. 2021 • Couples
This trip was the highlight of my visit to Egypt and it was delivered at the highest quality thanks to Ahmed’s care and dedication. Together with his second driver, they got us to our first stop before anyone else so we had the luxury of experiencing it without any crowds. Our transportation was a very comfortable vehicle that was spacious and air conditioned, with as many hot or cold drinks as we wanted, plus snacks. The itinerary was planned very well and our guide Said was exceptional at bringing the ancient history to life. We were so pleased with the service that we decided to book further trips through Rameshka tours and they did not disappoint. Ahmed and his team are very trustworthy and they truly care about their customers having a special experience.

A must to see luxor
From the very start,this has been an absolutely amazing day tour!!
We were picked up on time,mini bus very comfortable with a/c,hot and cold drinks and snacks,on offer throught day.
The two Ahmads,were perfect hosts/drivers,even went the extra to get us to karnak first to beat the crowds,which made the trip special!!
When we met up with said,the guide,he was so knowledgeable on all the stops,answered any questions,fully.
We even managed to squeeze in boat down the Nile,after a lovely buffet lunch,which really was Brilliant(at an extra cost but worth it)
Would highly recommend this tour,with this company,as professional and seemed to care!!!

Hurghada to Luxor day trip
Nov. 2021 • Couples
Perfectly planned day trip from Hurghada to Luxor - they manage to squeeze a lot in to the days itinerary. Hosts are great and the bus is comfortable with air con, snacks and drinks available. Siad (guide) was fantastic - really knowledgeable, friendly and passionate. Excellent value for money and a great way to experience what Luxor has to offer!

Amazing day in Luxor
Nov. 2021
If you’re staying in Hurghada and have never been to Luxor, this trip is well worth doing. However it’s a very long day with many hours getting there and back.
We were picked up on time at 5am and installed in a comfortable bus with water and snacks for the journey. Both of our drivers were charming and friendly. They took turns driving and got us efficiently and safely to Luxor and back. Our guide, Said, met us in Luxor and we immediately began visiting Karnak temple which is amazing. Said was very informative and we learned many fascinating things about Égyptien history. He was attentive to our needs and frequently asked us if he was giving us too much input or not enough. After a pleasant boat ride on the Nile (optional and not included in price) we had a good lunch at a restaurant overlooking the river. Then we drove over the mountain to the Valley of the Kings where Said explained the incredible history of the 62 tombs found there. We visited 3 of them, one of them being 200 steps below ground. Our journey continued with a visit to the imposing temple of Hatshepsut and Said recounting the incredible story of its existence. All in all a great day. Many thanks again to Said and our drivers and Ramashka Tours for the organization.

Awesome trip
Highly recommend this tour with Ramashka Tours, booked through Viator and instantly confirmed. Prompt pick up by Ahmed and great customer service with excellent communication during booking process. Vehicle was very clean, fresh, tidy and comfortable with good and safe drivers plus we were supplied with iced cold water and snacks for the journey which was a fab touch, our vehicle even had a TV/DVD where we watched films on our return.
We had originally booked a group tour but it became a Private tour instead at no extra cost which was wonderful. Our tour guide assigned in Luxor was Said who was waiting for us when we arrived and where we had the most amazing experience visiting the temples, tombs and a wonderful Nile cruise (extra) all made possible as a result of Said as he is very knowledgeable, interesting and extremely informative which enhanced this tour. During this tour, every effort was made to get us to the stops on time and ahead of all the other tourists which made for fantastic photo opportunities without the crowds. Overall a wonderful but long day, however highly recommended with Ramashka tours

Great day - very highly recommended!
Oct. 2021 • Couples
We were picked up at 4.55 from our hotel by Ahmed and his team. They greeted us warmly and had plenty of fresh orange juice, coffee & ice cold water on the bus, as well as chocolate croissants. The 4 hour drive to Luxor was made bearable with comfy cushions, good air con, an in-shuttle TV & good WiFi. We were surprised to see we had a very small group - only 12 in total! Made for an enjoyable experience.
Our first stop was Karnak temple, where we met our wonderful guide Said. Said walked us through every aspect of the temple in detail and was generally very knowledgeable and friendly.
We got back on the bus and ventured to the port, where we had the option of a quick boat trip across the river to the lunch restaurant (free) or a 45 min boat trip taking in the sights of the Nile. We went for the 45 min boat trip and had to pay 200 LE per person for the pleasure. Although this was an added expense we had not planned for, we believe it was well worth it. Said kept us informed of all the sights as we drifted, and even poured us a complementary cup of tea each.
The lunch restaurant itself was fine. It was a buffet style meal and there was plenty of choice. Not incredible food but certainly not bad. Drinks other than water are not included in the price you pay, so bring 30 LE each if you want a Fanta, Coke, etc.
We then travelled again by bus to the valley of the kings. This was my favourite part of the trip - the tombs are just incredible! Said, again, kept us very well informed and went above and beyond expectations to ensure all our questions were answered satisfactorily. We got to view 3 tombs with our ticket (this is standard). Said gave us the choice of him or us choosing. We trusted Said to show us the most interesting ones and we certainly were not disappointed!
Next, however, we were slightly disappointed. We ventured to the ‘Alabaster factory’, which is really just an alabaster shop with some manual tools out the front. It was an opportunity for the workers at the ‘factory’ to try and sell us things we didn’t want. Everything started out friendly but the ‘factory worker’ got angry and defensive when we didn’t want to buy from him. This had nothing to do with our guide Said however, and he clearly could see we were uncomfortable, as when we all got back to the bus he quickly explained about the next stop on our trip. The tour operator need to remove this from their itinerary as 3/4 of the group at least felt equally as uncomfortable.
We then continued our trip with a great stop at Hatshepsut’s temple. What a fantastic sight to see in real life! Absolutely stunning. Once again, Said gave us lots of interesting information. We noticed that the French & German tour guides from our group were not as thorough as Said so we really cannot thank him enough!
Our final stop was Colossi of Memnon. Another member of our group had said earlier in the day that he was really interested in seeing this, so the team kindly let us have a little longer than usual here. The statues are of monumental scale so we’re really pleased we got to see them.
Finally, we returned to the bus for the long drive home. Ahmed kept us filled up on snacks and drinks and did everything he could to make us comfortable. Thank you Ahmed for a very enjoyable tour!

Perfect day in upper Egipt
Oct. 2021 • Couples
We took the Luxor day trip with Ramashka, booked via TA/Viator. From the 8 days we spent in Egypt this time, this day was the best one. Pick-up worked as planned (actually 5min earlier, Swiss-like punctuality). We were a group of 4 adults and one 5 year old. The minibus was brand new, leather seats, very comfortable, AC, cold water and snacks included. The service was top notch. We were guided in German language, as requested. Captain Mimo 🙂 our guide through Luxor, is very knowledgeable and helpful and knows a lot about the ancient hosts but also modern times so you get a lot of infos. RAMASHKA Tours managed the tour so that we were among the first at all the objectives, avoiding the crowds and getting actually a private tour. It was an overwhelming experience, and well worth the money. For the profesionalism, organisation and good mood, they well deserve the 5 stars. Thanks again and see you next year!
