Pick-up was an hour earlier at 05:00 instead of 06:00, good communication though. Aly, our driver, was a friendly man who was there for us. Car with Aircon. Got us enough water and even two cokes with some snacks in the morning. Wayel (different spelling)Mustafa, our tourguide, was very friendly. Good information, good laughs. Temples and Valley of Kings are amazing to see, happy to have that experience. We skipped Banana Island, Happy we could skip it, as it wasn't for us. The restaurant is not good, didn't trust the food so only ate a little rice. price of soft drinks 2€. Baksheesh at toilet as expected. At the end of the tour, we visited a alabaster workshop. Not sure if genuine, but bought some nice souvenir anyway. Prices are NOT fixed, please negotiate. 50% off should be manageble. Maybe more if you really want to haggle. We had an unforgettable day, private tour is worth it if you have the extra money.

It was exhausting but it was worth it! After today we are happy and exhausted. First we went to the Karnak Temple. Then to Banana Island. The fruit from the island that we got on the boat was very tasty, we felt sorry for the animals. Lunch was surprisingly delicious. Then several short stops. At the end the crowning glory: the Valley of the Kings. All in all, there was a bit of everything and we experienced a lot. Don't forget to take lots of sunscreen and a hat. Mohamed Baraka is a great tour guide, very friendly, knows his stuff and has an answer to all questions. We can recommend the trip.

Mohammad Baraka was our guide , he was friendly and explained very well with so much detail, he even tought us to read jeroglífics.
