Our tour of the Valleys of the Kings and Queens, Colossi of Memnon and Amenhotep III's temple was spectacular. Melad explained what we would see before we entered each tomb, managing times when each was uncrowded or empty. We had ample time for seeing everything and breaks. We had a good, relaxed lunch. Melad took us for a caleche tour of Luxor at night and we sampled street foods, and then had another fantastic Egyptian dinner. He gave us time for souvenir shopping and helped us bargain. Perfect!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: It was my pleasure to be your guide in Luxor, I am glad that you enjoyed all these places and you showed a lot of interest which made me to show you more with a lot of enthusiasm .

We hired Melad to guide us and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I made! I was traveling with my 2 teenage daughters so safety was a major concern for me and having Melad around made us feel very secure. His advice was invaluable and his knowledge of all the sights was exceptional. The sights were fascinating and we all learnt so much, but a no point did we feel he was lecturing us. He also organised a driver for us who was very friendly and the van comfortable, modern and air conditioned.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you.

This tour was in the same day as our West Bank Tour of Luxor. Melad will provide a great tour for you. We have hired many tour guides in our travels and Melad stands out as one of the best.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your five stars rating!

Melad was a charming man and his excellent English made it very easy to understand him throughtout the tour. The tour was to the West Bank of the River Nile and included The Valley of The Kings. Melad was able to give us a good understanding of the Egygtian History and his knowledge was exceptional. We would highly recommend Melad as your Tour Guide for experiencing the local Luxor area history
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Its really one of the best and wonderful reviews i had on ToursByLocals.And I'm very glad that you enjoyed your tour with me. And thank you very much for recommending me for other people. I look forward to seeing you again.

This was the second tour of 3 booked with Melad. Having been to Karnak and Luxor temples with him we knew what to expect, and he didn't let us down. Hapshetsut's temple and Valley of the Kings were always going to be highlights, but Melad brings the history alive with his passion and enthusiasm. A very pleasant and stress-free tour.Thank you.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks again for that great rating! But believe me i enjoyed being with you as much as you did.

Our visit to the West Bank of the Valley of the Kings and the other sites turned out just as great as our tour of the a East Bank!! We had a really terrific time with Melad (as you can see from the 5-star ratings!).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mr.Joon, It was my pleasure to show you around and the secrets of the Egyptian civilization. And was great that you liked Luxor tours.

Melad can churn out the historical facts, but he also added colour and interest for our son around the ancient Egyptian myths associated with tombs and temples we visited. Melad can be flexible with the itinerary, so if you do a bit of reading, you can select highlights that you may be particularly interested in. We combined this trip with a Felucca trip on the Nile - making this a magical day and Melad can directed us to a great 'non-touristy' venue for lunch.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Mr. Philip. It couldn't be perfect without your cooperation, like always being on time . My pleasure to show you around and great that you liked my way in explanation.
