The day begins at 7am, when you're collected from your hotel or cruise ship in Aswan in private, air-conditioned vehicle for the 3-hour journey north to Luxor.

Start your Luxor day tour on the West Bank of the Nile. Visit the dramatic Valley of the Kings, home to the rich and magnificent tombs of some of Egypt's greatest rulers, and explore a selection of these gorgeously decorated burial places. Next, drive to the vast, cliff-cut Temple of Hatshepsut, the female pharaoh who ruled Egypt around 3,500 years ago, and is often represented with a man's beard.

    Visits were incredible, and increasing quality with time. The boutique part was predictible as it is a trap for tourists but it was still a very good experience. Our guide knowledge and explanations were great. He was adaptable and even changed langage and switch for us. The driver was very nice and always on time, made us feel secure on the road, drove very quick and very professional and even brought us snacks. Just keep in mind that Emo Tour offers to start at 7am or 8am but we did not have the choice and accepted 6am.

    The tour itself is great. However, the logistics don't live up to the theory. Here is something you should keep in mind booking this particular tour. I'm a solo traveler, and I love joining other groups to meet new people and experience something new each time. On this tour, I was NOT offered an option to join any groups and apprently they don't match tourists up. Everyone was doing a 'private' tour. I don't understand why I need to pay extra as a solo traveler when all the places I visited were literally packed with other one-two person 'private' tours. On top of all this, I gave Viator an option to match me up with a tour guide that speaks any of the top three languages I can communicate in - that most guides speak there, - and I got a tour guide who couldn't even hold a conversation in English. As much as I appreciate the fact that people do speak other languages in the country, I don't find it acceptable. If you are taking this tour in Arabic, it should be fine. The other note is they offer you to visit local 'workshops' to see how things are done, and ask you to buy something. If you ARE looking for those souvenirs, it might be a great option, but I wasn't. So it was nice they were not too forceful about that. The final opportunity for improvement is drving logistics. It took as about 4.5 hours to get back instead of 3 hours because for whatever reason (I gave up on trying to communicate with my tour guide and the driver) we decided to take local bumpy roads instead of the highway. Both the driver and the tour guide were really nice and trustworthy but the experience was pretty exhausting and I felt drained by the end of the day.

    Can't recommend this trip enough! The best way to travel between Luxor and Aswan for sure!! Tayso from Emo tours helped us change dates last minute with no issue and provided us with a modern, large and comfortable, air conditioned SUV. Our driver and guide Ahmed Eid were great. We learned a lot and were able to spend lots of time wandering around the magnificent temples of Kom Umbu and Edfu (a cannot miss!) Ahmed was in high spirits and is in general a really very brotherly and fun guide. Considering they had to drive all the way back to Aswan once they droped us off in Luxor and it was actually a holiday for them, we can't express enough our appreciation and gratitude for the amazingly positive and energetic experience. Highly recommend!!

    Our tour guide was Khaled Saady! We had an amazing time with him! He was extremely knowledgeable and passionate about Egyptology and shared that passion with us! He taught us so much about Egyptian history and kept us hydrated throughout a long and hot day (105 degrees)! We would not have enjoyed our tour without such an amazing tour guide! Highly recommend and the price is extremely reasonable since you’re being driven from and to Aswan with an amazing Egyptian lunch and driver! Highly recommend!

    Our guide, Ms Ghada Khalaf did an amazing job, despite the heat and Ramadan (no food and water for her). She had a lot of knowledge, but also a good sense of humor. The driver from Aswan to Luxor was also very professional. We had a great day of discovery!

    A wonderful tour with a wonderful guide and driver. Our tour guide Sam was wonderful. I ended up very ill at the start of the tour due to something I had eaten the night before. I felt miserable. Sam stopped at a pharmacy and purchased medication for me. After a few hours, I started to feel better. Throughout the tour, Sam was very attentive to how I was feeling. This meant a lot since this was a long tour. He did all he could to ensure that we had a great tour regardless of how I felt. Sam was wonderful with my son. They spent the tour playing soccer with the rocks at the sights. I really appreciated him entertaining my son. The sights were amazing. Sam was knowledgeable about the sights and their history. This added to the enjoyment of the tour. I would highly recommend Emotours and Sam specifically if you are looking for a great tour with a caring and fun tour guide.

    It was a great idea to reserve this tour. Mohammed, the driver for this excursion did not speak fluent English; however, enough to communicate. He was courteous and punctual. My guide Ashraf was incredible. I enjoyed my visit to the valley of the kings, Karnak temple, and Luxor temple. If you visit the museum of Egyptian History in Cairo, you must visit the tomb of Tutankhamun, it will be an extra ticket but worthed. Big recommendation, these tours will always include a visit to a papyrus store or alabaster store, my recommendation is not to but anything there since it is extremely expensive and you can find the same things at the bazar. Lunch was good,and I really enjoy visiting Luxor, I would definitely visit it again and hire the same tour.

    It was an amazing tour, the best way to travel from Aswan to Luxor. On the way I could visit the temples of Kom Ombo and Edfu. In Kom Ombo - beside the double temple itself - one can see a no meter and mummified crocodiles. Edfu temple was not destroyed and already therefore gives a different impression. It was wonderful to be accompanied by such a kind with so much knowledge about the sites itself, but also history, mythology, hieroglyphs and much more. It was a great pleasure to spend this day with Rasha Mohamed, who studied beside other subjects hieroglyphs at university for several years. So I learned a lot, while having an unforgettable and entertaining day. At the end I reached Luxor my next destination with no specific travel time in a nice air conditioned car with a superb driver. Highly recommended!

    The tour to Abu simbel was very good with the visit to philae temple. We had a nice experience crossing the desert. We had an excellent guide in Spanish called Amany. I recommend her to all client of Emo
