Melad is an excellent tour guide and a nice gentleman. He is very informative and helpful. He goes the extra mile and covers everything from A to Z. He can organise and customise so many tours to suit your needs. He was with us for the full day and we were picked up and dropped off door to door. We had loads of fun and are very thankful for his time. Highly recommend, thank you Melad.

Melad gave our family a wonderful experience in Luxor. His knowledge and passion for the history of the region brought the past to life as he guided us around many of the key sites during our week's stay. He took us to great local restaurants, and adapted our itinerary to make sure we saw the best sites when there were few people around. I would highly recommend him as a guide, as the care and flexibility he showed with us was fantastic and made our entire stay so effortless and worry-free.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much dear Richard! It was really nice meeting you and your family. I hope to see you again in Egypt and please don't forget to ask Patrick, if he still has anymore questions or I did answer all of them!

Date: Dec 22/19

Melad was a great guide! He was right on time and we were on the quad bikes heading out to the desert in no time. We stopped at a small sheltered place on the desert where he fixed tea for us while we looked around. There was a circle of rocks with fossils and old finds (i.e., pottery) inside it. We placed the piece of pottery we found inside. I expect to see it still there when we go back. If you want to quad bike, go with Melad. A great time is guaranteed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much dear Deborah. I look forward to seeing you again. Happy new year!

Melad is just an amazing human. Not only did he take me to all of the most amazing sites in Luxor, but he also made me feel safe and at home every step of the way during my journey. He took me to the most amazing food, gave me a solid impression of local life, and helped me with everything from airport transport to saving a missing bag at the last minute. The tours were unbelievable as well. Melad has deep knowledge of the history and local culture. I can't imagine having a better Egypt experience.

We had a great time with Melad. He was punctual and very knowledgeable about all of the sights as well as how the system worked. He told us in advance what to do and how to do it. Behavioral expectations were very helpful. We learned a lot and had a great time visiting both the East and West banks of the Nile.

Today 4 of us spend a second day with Melad visiting some interesting places like the Karnak Temple, the Luxor Temple or the Luxor Museum. Melad gave us a history lesson in each place we visited! I never had a tour guide as knowledgeable as Melad. To end the day we visited a local market with some really good prices on local handicrafts. If you are looking for a tour guide in Luxor, I can recommend Melad without any hesitation.

I have done many tours over the years but I never had a guide as knowledgeable and friendly as Melad. He met us at the hotel right on time and took us to a full day of new discoverings for us. From the moment we left the hotel in a very comfortable minivan, Melad started explaining the history of Egypt and gave us very useful information to better understand what we were about to see. His four years of university studies on history are a great plus's at the time of sharing his knowledge with us!

Melad was knowledgeable, flexible, & accommodating. Months before arrival, he suggested I spend more time in Luxor than in Cairo/Giza -and he was so right! The Pyramids are forever a must-see, but the Valley of the Kings has vastly more to offer. Then one morning at sunrise I saw colorful balloons rising with the sun. I wanted to do that, so Melad altered the plans again and I was off in a balloon floating high above the Nile! My visit to Egypt will always be a cherished memory thanks to Melad.

we spent our third day of our tour with Melad at Dendera temple. It's a beautiful temple, the only one that's intact and still going through preservation works. Highly recommended trip as you can still see the clear carvings and paintings on the temple walls with the ceiling in tact. Loved the local snack stop on the way! Thanks Melad!

I'd highly recommend Melad and his driver Remon. Remon picked us up on time from Marsa Alam and drive us safely to Luxor to meet Melad - a 5.5hr journey. It did not feel that long as we enjoyed the ride and took some rests. Upon arrival, we head out to Karnak temple and Luxor temple in the evening to enjoy the evening scene with lights. It was well planned timing and Melad's knowledge of the temples and Egypt history were impressive. My family with two girls aged 13 and 11 throughly enjoyed the tour!

We had a nice, but windy day, in the beautiful desert while 4W driving. Due to the 20mph winds, there was limited visibility on this day. The tour started and finished in a village which gave us more of a local flavor than being in the city. The desert was full of shell fossils that we searched for during our break time. Definitely bring sunglasses and a bandanna/scarf!

Melad was the nicest and most knowledgeable guide. He tailored the day to our interests and made additional suggestions we may want to partake in. He and the driver were very conscious about making sure we had enough to eat and drink throughout the day; we even tried lots of authentic food which was delicious. These two temples were amazing. I'd highly recommend both the tour AND Melad to all who come to Egypt!

We would highly recommend Melad to all who travel to Egypt. We could tell how kind and helpful he was from the moment we started emailing him questions. His graciousness continued throughout the tour and his knowledge was impeccable. Aswan is an interesting city that we suspect gets overlooked, but is worth spending several days in. We visited in March with its cool weather and only a handful of tourists. We really enjoyed this tour because it has a little bit of everything for everybody.

Melad is professional and courteous. He is very knowledgeable about the sites we visited. His explanation has enriched our knowledge of the sites we visited. We appreciate very much his arrangement to take a boat ride from the East Bank to the West Bank and back, which saves much travelling time. I will not hesitate to recommend him to everyone.

Melad is very friendly, knowledgable, and accommodating. He quickly learned our interests (food and photography) and suggested options to optimize our experience, such as taking a boat ride on the Nile to a local Egyptian restaurant, and reminding us to purchase special tickets so that we can take pictures (some sites won't allow you to take pictures unless you buy such tickets). Overall, it's a great full-day tour for our family, enjoying the highlights of Luxor at a comfortable pace.

This was the second of a 2 day tour of Luxor with Melad. We visited Luxor and Karnak Temples, the Valley of the Kings and sailed the Nile. As I mentioned in an earlier review, Melad was completely professional, knowledgeable, thoughtful, kind and articulate. He is a credit to himself, his country and Tours by Locals.
