What people are saying about Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut

OceanAir travels did an excellent job! Our contact, Ms. Magdy, was exceptional - quick, responsive, and thoughtful. Adel was an amazing guide - a learned Egyptologist with a knack for storytelling and with a wonderful sense of humor. Moustapha was a wonderful driver - prompt courteous, fire sly and welcoming. Every aspect from logistics to lunch was perfectly organized. We just showed up and enjoyed it all!

Huda was an amazing tour guide for the full day east and west bank tour! She was very knowledgeable and friendly. She provided recommendations for things to do at each site (definitely do the Ramses V/VI tomb 100 EGP) and allowed time for photos after the tour of each site. Definitely recommend!

We took the private tour option (recommended). We loved the tour with our guide Ali, super attentive and spoke Spanish. He explained the whole history of each temple and tombs to us, we ate at a local restaurant and avoided street vendors at all times.

A truly fantastic day in Luxor with my tour guide Baghat Fathy and Ahmed. An unforgettable experience. Highly recommended!

Both guide and driver are nice and professional, letting us have a pleasant and memorable trip.
