    I spent a lovely day with Nermeena in Luxor. She was the best tour guide I had in Egypt. She was very knowledgeable, kind and extremely easy going. She spoke really good English and tailored the tour to my needs. She never pushed me to buy anything, nor did she rush me through anywhere. Overall, I strongly recommend Nermeena for any tours in Egypt.

    I am a solo female traveller, and I can honestly say that with my tour guide Marian Azer, I felt incredibly safe and taken care of! She was really attentive to my needs and my endless stream of questions, and I understand how to read some of the hieroglyphics in the monuments and a lot more about normal Egyptian life in general. It’s obvious that ancient Egyptian history is her passion, and she even discovered things about the monuments we went to that she never noticed before, which she excitedly shared with me. I truly can’t recommend her and Egypt Tours enough for an unforgettable experience in Luxor!! Thank you so much for everything Marian- I’ll never forget this trip :)

    Mahmoud Nour Made this tour extraordinary! He was kind, polite, and full of the most wonderful mind blowing information. We would recommend requesting this guid! He is also very funny and keeps you entertained. Mahmoud speaks English fluently(by the way he speaks several languages fluently). He has a passion for the Egyptian culture and it shows when he is giving his lectures about the history of Egypt. My husband and I had a wonderful adventure and Mahmoud made it so much better, his tales will have you reliving the past of Egypt as he guides you through his tour. We highly recommend Mahmoud Nour, as he is the best guide we have ever had! Tip him well he is a treasure in himself!!! Thank you so much Mahmoud Nour you made our experience here in Egypt so amazing.

    Such a wonderful trip! Definitely worth the journey! We had such an amazing time! Samar was so knowledgeable and accomodating! Tailored the trip to us and we will definitely be back! Was so nice to have a private journey allowing us to go at our own pace. Mustafa was a great driver! Luxor is truly beautiful! Will be back!

    Professional tourism company. Clear communication and punctual timings. Services are easy to book. Fair prices. I highly recommend Egypt tours. Our guide was knowledgable, organized and well-prepared. However, he has to work more on his storytelling, flexibility and communication skills. I'd rate him 3 out of 5 stars.

    Thank you Egypt Tours, we thoroughly enjoyed our day tour of Luxor which included the Valley of the Kings, Temple of the Queen Hatshepsut and Karnak Temple today. Marian Azer was our tour guide and she was so brilliant, always very prompt and answering all our questions so patiently. She is so knowledgeable and knew about the subject in utmost details. We really appreciated her enthusiasm and keenness in explaining to us about the various murals. She also went out of the way to ensure that we get to complete our tour of Karnak Temple and see all the important sites there before leaving for Hurghada! Thanks for a wonderful trip that will be etched in our memories forever!
