Ahmed was an amazing guide in Luxor and Cairo. He was extremely knowledgeable about the history and the culture of the areas we visited. He was well organized and took wonderful care of us during the entire trip. He was very professional and gave us opportunities to see areas off the beaten path. The trip was stress free, - so we could just take in all sights relaxed and excited to be there. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking to travel to Egypt!!

The tour was amazing. Ahmed gave us some good tips and explained a lot about the tombs in Valley of the Kings. He was even very patient with us when we forgot to get local cash for the entry fees, he covered the fees for us all day. Thank you Ahmed, that was so kind of you! He was prompt and courteous, a great day overall! I would have liked a little more information about local culture on our drive to the Valley but otherwise it was fabulous.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank u, Jen, for your nice review .i would love to have 5* but it is ok these very few hours you spend in Luxor not enough to cover everything and next time when u come back stay longer please and I will make u half Egyptian and let you know more about the local culture

Date: Mar 13/19

The day tour to Abydos and Dendera was some of our best time spent in Luxor. The temples were a magnificent display of colours, detail and preservation - everyone must see them. Ahmed was kind enough to organize a lunch pack for us & even stopped for some Egyptian bread so we could eat like locals. Very tasty! Ahmed's knowledge and appreciation for the finer sights of Luxor's offerings resulted in a memorable experience. His passion for Egyptian mythology and history was both detailed & enthusiastic.

Ahmed was very accommodating to us on the first day as we had a number of "must-sees" on our list for the West Bank, while being conscious of not overlapping items we would be covering in our organized tour later in our holiday. Ahmed's knowledge and appreciation for the finer sights of Luxor's offerings resulted in us having a unique and memorable experience. Ahmed's passion for Egyptian mythology and history was both detailed and enthusiastic. We will never forget our first time in Luxor. Thank you!

I'm a professional guide in London so I know a good one when I find one. Ahmed is an excellent guide. His historical knowledge is very deep and easy to understand. He took us to sites that were surprising and well chosen (as well as the main ones), and tailored our tours over four days to respond to the things that interested us most. We had a wonderful time and really enjoyed his company and our experience. I highly recommend him.

See my previous review. As promised Ahmed was waiting at the airport to greet us at mid day. He gave us a few options.We chose to start immediately at Karnak. The transport and driver were excellent as it had been the day before in Cairo. Ahmed was extremely knowledgeable explaining and answering all my questions very ckearly and in great detail. He gave us plenty of time to wander around and pause whenever we wished. After Karnak Ahmed took us to visit Luxor Temple before dropping us at our hotel.

This was our first day with Ahmed. He planned an excellent tour for us and ensured we visited and saw everything I had asked to see. He was very punctual to collect us at 08.00 from our hotel and returned us safely soon after 16.00. It was a very full day and Ahmed kept us safe explaining in very good English what we were looking at and giving advice. After dropping us in Giza he had to return to Cairo to catch the overnight train to Luxor to meet us there at the airport. Thank you Ahmed

We spent a wonderful day touring the West Bank sights with Ahmed. He was very knowledgeable but best of all, he intuitively managed to tailor the tour to the diverse interests of our group of 6. We were also taken to eat what was the best Egyptian food we have had on our trip so far. Ahmed did not, at any point, rush us even though we went well over the duration of the tour. We would definitely ask Ahmed to guide us again on our next visit and to actually, plan our whole itinerary in Egypt.

Ahmed picked us our group of 6 up from from airport and from the get go, we knew we found the best guide. Five of our 7 bags did not arrive on our Egypt air flight and it was a nightmare to get a truthful answer from the airline to get our bags found and delivered. We did not receive them until 2am the next day but it was only after Ahmed made countless calls to both airline and personal contacts to ensure it was done. This was definitely above and beyond what was expected and much appreciated by all!

We were a group of eight people shown around Luxor by Ahmed and it was a wonderful experience having him explain the history, the inscriptions and the culture. He is extremely organized and timing to each venue was bang on. He patiently answered any questions that we had. Ahmed also has a great sense of humour which made the trip a lot more fun. And to top it all he introduced us to the local cuisine which we all thoroughly enjoyed and voted it the best meal of our trip. Highly recommend him.

Ahmed was very knowledgeable and often thoughtful in buying us snacks and drinks. He was off his game because of a bad cold. We were turned off by his frequent cell phone use when we were touring.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: although I got very sick I took them around the temples to spend more than the time estimated in their itinerary. their itinerary was very difficult .not every guide could do it. I did a great job and accepted to be appreciated & unfortunately, Joe and Lucy didn't realize how much did I suffer to make them happy these phone calls were from the authorities to facilitate their drive in conveys. without these phone calls, the policemen would stop them in every checkpoint and they will never leave them to go

We loved our tour with Ahmed! Just to set the picture, we have been traveling for a week+, a family with two teens, in August with temps in triple digits. Yet everyone had fun, enjoyed, learned a lot and would do it again! Ahmed's style is laid back, no nonsense, but fun. His goal is to make sure everyone enjoys, but also gets a sense of the absolutely extraordinary sights and history they are experiencing. It is also important that we learn what has been lost from decades of looting. Bravo!

Ahmed's cool and friendly demeanor made our visits to the sites a pleasure. Right from the day before when I was contacting him to change our program slightly to the day we were heading back to Cairo, Ahmed checked on us to make sure we were having a great experience. He was knowledgeable, funny and caring but also guaranteed we did not miss any detail. He is a great communicator. We learnt a lot about the local culture as we talked on our way to different antiquities.I wish I could give him Six Stars !!

From the very first meeting when Ahmed arrived at the hotel early for our tour, he was professional, punctual and a wealth of knowledge. He worked closely with the driver, was able to amend our tour if we needed to finish the day early or extend for one more site. He was accommodating and flexible. At the end of our trip we felt that we had spent our time with a very good friend and not just a guide. I would recommend Ahmed for touring whether it was a small group like my wife and I or a larger tour.
