Overview

In Egypt you should never assume and never presume anything. You are now entering a world where logic seldom prevails. It's up to you to decide - wander and ponder or play it safe?

Egypt is a country where you want to talk with someone who knows how everything works, the fastest time to get from A to B, can tell you what you are looking at - and where to find anything special that you are looking for in a temple.

It's a country where it really is a good idea to have someone organise your transport and be willing to adapt to your wishes where and when it is possible, but also who is honest enough to tell you when something is not worth your time. That is me! And I have been doing it for so long now that it is totally natural and instinctive in me to understand what you are looking for, even if you can't actually put it into words.

Our tour today is magnificent. you will get an emotional, almost teary reaction of being in the presence of something timeless

  • Free hotel pickup and drop-off included

    We booked a five-day trip to Luxor and it was absolutely amazing! Our tour guide was Nahla and she was really fantastic. She arranged everything (individual program) and she knows so much. It was so much fun to listen to all her stories. I would definitvely recommend this tour to everybody. Thanks for an amazing trip!

    I booked a five-day trip to Luxor with Nahla via the Tours by Locals website. I am so glad I came and stayed in Luxor as I was able to explore the area with Nahla's help and expertise. There is so much to see in the area that I can't pick just one highlight - so I will give a brief summary of the places visited and seen. It is worth noting that you could do this trip in fewer than five days and Nahla could easily sort that out for you - it wouldn't be too rushed, either. In addition to the tour, Nahla arranged airport transfers, a felucca ride and a balloon ride (fantastic!) - a sound & light show as well as a horse & buggy ride were also offered but I declined - but indicates that Nahla can pretty much arrange anything you want to see and do. Day One: a visit to the Valley of the Kings (note: no photography allowed - daft but they're strict and it isn't the end of the world) - I opted to visit the Tomb of Ramses 6th, which is only an extra LE80 (about £3.50 / $4.30 at time of writing) - well worth it. I didn't opt for Tutankhamen's tomb as the treasures found there are on display at the excellent Egyptian Museum in Cairo and there's a replica at Howard Carter's house. After that we visited the Temple of Queen Hatshesput and then the Colossi of Memnon. Day Two started with the balloon ride - pick-up at 05.15 and back to the hotel by about 08.30 - it was a great experience - very enjoyable. Perfect weather and a perfect landing! After that it was a visit to the astonishing Temple at Karnak complex followed by the Luxor Temple. Day Three and we started with the Habu Temple (or Medinat Habu), which I'd flown over in the balloon ride and then on to the Ramesseum - where Nahla told me about Shelley's poem Ozymandias - which to my shame I hadn't heard of! We finished off with the Tombs of the Nobles. Day Four and we drove out to the city of Qena (about 60km from Luxor) and visited the nearby Temple of Dendara - another astonishing temple complex. Day Five and we went to the Valley of the Queens. A ticket to visit the restored tomb of Nefertari cost LE1,000 (around £43.50 / $54 at time of writing) - I thought it was worth it to get a real idea of how incredibly ornate and beautifully decorated these tombs were. Nearby is the Deir el-Medina, where the remains of the artisans houses can be seen as well as a terrific temple of Hathor - with some wonderful images of gods, goddesses and hieroglyphics - very colourful. We finished at Howard Carter's house & museum (complete with the replica of Tutankhamen's tomb). As I mentioned, Nahla organised and arranged the trip - it was extremely good value especially as the cost of the balloon and felucca rides were included. Everything worked out well and Nahla was able to explain all the history and stories - bringing everything to life and making it enjoyable as well as fascinating. Some of the sights here are just mesmerising. If you are planning to spend a few days in Luxor then I would certainly recommend Nahla - who will show you the wonders of this area - sort out any extra trips and activities you want to do - and make sure you have a fantastic and truly memorable time.

    My cousin and I had such a positive experience touring Egypt with Egyptraveluxe tours! Our guide, Nahla, made this experience so incredible with her knowledge and passion for the history of Egypt and all of the sites we visited (see below). In Luxor we went to Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple, Tombs of the Nobles, and Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. On the drive to Aswan we stopped at Temple of Edfu and in Aswan we went to Temple of Philae Nahla was very flexible and made sure we got around of all of the sites we wanted to visit (we were able to fit in all of the above sites in 3 days). I highly recommend using Egyptraveluxe (specifically Nahla) when visiting Egypt - I learned so much from our guide- she made this experience so easy and so much fun (at a very reasonable price too!)
