Yesterday I took the 1-day tour to Luxor. Mohamed was an excellent guide, he explained to us in detail, he was patient with us and very attentive during the excursion. I would definitely recommend it for future occasions. As for the tour, I am giving the first note for the excellent support we had from Mohra from start to finish, making sure that we could have the experience even though it had been cancelled. He was always attentive to us during the trip and available to answer questions and ensure that we were safe. Among the things that I would recommend for the next occasion is to notify in advance if there will be a change in the activity, in my case the change of plans involved incurring expenses that exceeded 100 euros, since they impacted the plans that I had insured for the day. following. At the same time, the conditions of the hotel where we stayed have a strong opportunity for improvement in cleanliness and customer service from the owner.

Absolutely amazing. I booked a shared tour but it ended up being just me and Nermeen, the guide, and the driver. Nermeen was incredibly knoweldgable and genuinely passionate about the topic. It was obvious that she wanted to share this history with me and make sure I enjoyed my time. She was easy to chat with, comfortable to be around, and an all around pleasure to meet. The tour was incredibly smooth and well coordinated and we actually added on a third site based on her recommendations. Added bonuses is that lunch was actually delicious and Nermeen's English puts mine (a native speaker) to shame (if language barriers is a concern for you don't even worry about it). I'm so happy I booked this and cannot recommend Nermeen and the special egypt group enough. Both tours I took with them were great, informative, and well coordinated.

My guide Ayman was exceptional and very well versed in the early Egyptian history. I learned much more from than I did in all my history classes in school. He took care of all my needs to include going out of the way for me to purchase more items and going off the beaten path to learn more history. I highly recommend this tour!

This was both an informative and pleasurable way to experience the temples of Luxor. Manal, our smart guide, patiently explained and customized our private tour. We were treated like new friends from the very beginning. We highly recommend Manal and Nice Tours for a 1-day feature packed excursion. We will be back.

The Valley of the Kings is amazing! Our guide Samar explained everything in detail and in an easy-to-understand way. He took lots of photos for us. The driver even let us charge our smartphones. The Egyptian lunch was delicious. I recommend everyone to go there.
