          Thank you so much Barre!!!
          Barre was a really nice person. It was my first time to Luxor and I really enjoyed it 😊It was a very hot day, but we had a smooth transfer to the airport, the car was cool, and he guided us perfectly, all in English! Since I was with him in the Valley of the Kings, I was able to sightsee with ease! When we had lunch together, he told me about his family and the history and culture of the Egyptian and Arab peoples. Talking with him has made me even more interested in history. He can also read ancient scripts. He told us that he was going to visit and learn from a university professor. It was great to tour the ruins with a great guide. Thank you so much! Would love to see you again😊

          Do not hesitate to book this tour, an absolute must with Barry!!
          This is a must do trip while in Luxor. Our tour guide Barry and our driver were so kind. They really made the trip special for my family and I. Barry is extremely knowledgeable and is an excellent Egyptologist. Request Barry for this tour he will keep you safe and won't take you to any hustle and bustle business where they will try and rip you off. He is an excellent photographer as well lol.

          Beautiful tour! Khaled was so kind and patient, offering to take many pictures for us. He was so knowledgable and answered every question we had. The temples themselves were shockingly stunning, filled with history and beauty, and the air conditioning in the car saved us as we drove between them. Book this tour, you will not regret it!

          Full day tour Luxor (East/West Bank)
          Our guide Barry met us in our hotel lobby at 7am sharp. We could tell instantly that he was passionate about sharing his knowledge of the history of Egypt and the complexity of information surrounding the City of Luxor with regards to its temples and sites. He and his driver transported us from each of the sites like clockwork—we would never have made it to all of these sites on our own and it was so much more enjoyable with just our small group. We heard the stories of being hassled at these sites for extra entrance fees or by vendors being overly aggressive but Barry gave us a certain peace of mind. Would highly recommend to anybody with a day or two in Luxor.

          Fabulously timed and adventurous day!
          Barry was beyond fabulous! Thank you so much for everything! He picked us up promptly, made sure to elaborate and answered all of our questions. He went into detail about things we couldn’t find online, a true historian. It felt so wonderful having our own clean car with a/c for an expeditious day! Highly recommend, we would return and send all our friends and family here exclusively.

          Amazing Luxor Experience with Abdo
          We had a great tour experience and Abdo was an absolutely amazing tour guide! We were driven around in a great car with powerful AC and Abdo gave us a great explanation of every site before we reached it. His was very knowledgeable on ancient Egypt and the lunch was delicious. Would 100% do this tour again.

          Excellent Tour Experience with Abdo!
          Abdo was extremely knowledgeable about not only the ancient Egypt but also answered our questions about modern Egypt as well. This tour was extremely comfortable, safe, and food, water, and snacks were provided by Abdo. We were able to be given tours and also time to explore each of the sites on our own. This tour is a MUST when visiting Luxor!

          No 1 Luxor Guide - The professor
          My partner and I were delighted by our tour with Mohsen. He was very professional, knowledgeable, articulate, and pleasant, with a good sense of humour, making the trip fun. The car was new, and comfortable. Mohsen had tickets prearranged, making our various entries straight forward, with no need to queue. He also assisted with navigating the various local vendors at the temples. Highly recommended, safe and reliable guide for your Luxor visit.

          The temple was worth the drive from the city. Our guide, Khaled, informed us of its rich history and allowed us to explore on our own after our history lesson.

          Amazing Luxor tour with Barry!😎❤️
          Our family enjoyed this tour with Barry. He explained the history well, and connected nicely with our family. He helped us find shops with items we were interested in. One of our family has a special diet, and he explained that well to the restaurant people. He tailored the tour to our wishes.

          Barry was an amazing tour guide who knew his history! In the extreme heat he gave wise advice as to what to prioritize and laid out the options of how to enjoy the day while knowing our limits. His English was top rate and he related well to our family of young adult children.

          Best Guide Ever
          Barre Ahd Elhakk is hands down the best guide we've had on this trip and, frankly, that I've ever had. University-level knowledgeable, a great storyteller, and very open and friendly. Insist on him. He will give you a memorable and fun day.

        Roshdy, our tour guide was very informative and fun to be around.

        We are always a bit hesitant to pay the "premium" on tour guides vs. just going ourselves but would definitely recommend this one due to the number of stops and history behind all the stops.

        My husband and I took a full day trip with Guide Barry and we cannot say enough good things about our trip! Barry was very punctual and met us in our lobby right on time; the vehicle was brand new, spacious, and very clean. During the tour I never felt rushed and Barry led us through the temples at a comfortable pace while teaching us much about Egyptian history (and unlike other tours, we did not make any unplanned stops to shops or markets).If you’re looking for a compassionate, respectful tour guide for your next experience, I would recommend Barry in a heartbeat; a decision you’ll never regret!

        We had a fantastic trip with Mohsen. He was extremely knowledgeable, helpful and made it a great experience for us. All tickets were pre-purchased (additional tomb tickets could be purchased on top). All arrangements were pre-made so it was a hassle free experience. Our tour took 5hrs door to door with pickup and drop off from our hotel on the West Bank. We would highly recommend Mohsen who was a walking encyclopaedia of Egyptian knowledge.

        My Girlfriend and I had an incredible experience during our tour with Roshdy. We started our journey in Egypt at Cairo to see the great Pyramids. As great as the pyramids were our experience in dealing with locals and guides was at the opposite end of the spectrum. Got conned multiple times and it was frustrating.

        Roshdy was like a breath of fresh air. He was kind, thoughtful, patient and very well informed. He did not push us into buying anything and was not overbearing.

        He took us to a really good restaurant called Africa (had vegetarian and vegan options) which had a great view of the Nile.
        He also went above and beyond by taking us to a perfume shop which was not in our iternarary and was super prompt in getting our phone charger back to our hotel which we had forgotten in the car.

        I highly recommend using Reflections Travel with Roshdy as your guide! You will not be disappointed!

        Haney and Ahmed (respectful driver) picked us up on time and they had the tickets and timed everything in an organized fashion. Haney walked with us to all sites but did not enter any thumbs because guides are not allowed (not sure about the latter since we saw a few inside giving tours). Unfortunately towards the end of the day, we were disappointed with the lunch place because the meals were overpriced ($10), and so were the sodas ($3). I would recommend to the travel agency to arrange a deal with a fair and honest restaurant and simply include it in the package. The fact that we bring American dollars doesn't mean that tourists must pay 3x or 4x the fair prices, unfortunately, it felt like lots of Luxor people wanted to overprice everything. Aside from this, Haney was kind, funny, and his English fluency is pretty decent but could still use some practice to ensure tourists understand 100%.

        I booked a full day tour of Luxor - tour itself was good. But i have rated them 1 star as they participate in scamming the tourists- so please be aware when booking a tour.

        As part of their tour they take the tourist to a store called Sekhmet stating we should buy from this store. They create a whole story as to how everything is handmade by the team, & how we should never buy from the street vendor’s as they are selling very poor quality products hence their price it is soo cheap.

        Beware nothing in the store is handmade, it is mass produced. Everything is extremely over priced i.e they want £100 just for a small statue which you see the street vendors selling the same for £2.

        Mohsen was our guide for two days and Islam was our driver. We had a rocky start as Reflections told them the wrong pickup time - 9am when we had booked 8am. They did apologise and managed to arrive for 8.40am. We didn't feel rushed and saw the West bank sites. We didn't need to queue and we avoided crowds so we recommend going as early as possible. His knowledge and friendliness made up for the late start. He took us to the tombs that were most worth seeing and offered us the opportunity to see Tutankhamun's tomb but gave us the pros and cons so we could make an informed decision.
        At the temple of Hatshepsut, he explained the site and let us wander on our own. We weren't sure if we were missing out on his guidance because we did see a tour guide explaining some hieroglyphics, and then we asked him about the relics and he explained a bit. We ended the tour with the colossi of Memnon which was ok, and then was dropped off at our hotel for lunch. Even though it was a short full day, it felt like we had covered a lot.

        For day two, they did come on time and we were taken to the Karnak and luxor temples which were both amazing and he explained in detail a lot of hieroglyphics and discussed theories to our interests with passion. He also gave us time to absorb, marvel and explore at our own pace. Again, we returned back to the hotel in time for lunch and felt like we had a full day.

        If you get Mohsen, you will have a lovely time.

        The tour was no nonsense (gift shops, papyrus "museums", spice shops) so recommend if you're not into all that and are just interested in the history of Luxor.

        I booked my tour at the last minute with Reflections Travel. Youssef was my tour guide and he doubled up as my personal photographer. He was very informative and flexible with the schedule. I was very interested in the artwork inside the tombs in the Valley of the Kings, so I spent a longer time there - he was very accommodating and worked around preferences. The tour itself was great - you’ll get to visit almost all the main attractions on the West Bank. It’s a long day, but you will learn a lot and get to see some of Egypt’s most treasured sites. I would highly recommend Reflections Travel for your tours in Luxor - ask for Youssef!

        We booked this tour during our 10 day visit to Egypt and it’s been everything we could’ve hoped for. 

We booked one day prior, so that’s quite short notice. TripAdvisor’s payment system faltered, but I made arrangements through WhatsApp and they showed great flexibility there. 

Our guide and driver arrived right on time to pick us up at our hotel. 

All the sights in this tour are fantastic and really not to be missed if you’re in Egypt. I think the Valley of the Kings is even more impressive than the Pyramids – but of course it’s not a contest. 

Our guide Sayed has so much knowledge and insights, it was fantastic. He showed us bits and pieces we would’ve never seen ourselves and he gave context to the things we saw. He also likes to ask quick quiz questions like “Remember I told you about Anubis, the god of …”. I didn’t always know the answers because it’s quite a lot to take in ;-). 

Both Sayed and our driver were polite and chivalrous. Asking if we’re comfortable in the car, offering to buy water and suggesting to take toilet breaks at known clean places. 
Of course he buys the tickets to all the sites so you don’t have to worry about that. 

Only thing I didn’t like were the people offering unsolicited help at the various sites and then expecting payment. Even the official overseers in the tombs do that, which is super annoying. But that’s just the way it is in Egypt. 

The pacing of the tour is really good. You can go as fast or slow as you like. We ended up doing the tour in 6.5h which was great because it was a very hot day (42°C). 

So, to sum up:
I can highly recommend this tour.

        Roshdy was an awesome guide! The best that we have had so far this trip. He gave plenty of details and didn’t rush us from site to site, like others have. He also did a very good job of running interference between our group and the people selling cheap souvenirs. Although lunch wasn’t included, he suggested a local cafe that served the best Egyptian food we’ve eaten on our trip. 5 Stars. Definitely recommend requesting Roshdy for any Luxor tour you’re doing!
