To put it simply, Nahla is a superstar! She is a gifted storyteller who hooks your interest on substance (not just a list of dates), and managed the difficult balance of engaging both parents and our 15 and 13 year olds. She also cleverly intersperses 'heavy' historical sites with light interludes (such as the papyrus workshop). Nothing was too much trouble, and she happily incorporated our suggestions (a sunset felucca trip and a visit to a local supermarket). I cannot recommend her highly enough!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Dear Cathy , your sweet review made my day , miss you and the kids .

Beyond excellent - if I could give more stars I would. Nahla's extensive knowledge of history (she is an Egyptologist) including the arts and culture and interesting facts about ordinary ancient life really makes her a special guide. She also knows about building techniques of the time (a particular interest of mine) and can cogently explain some of the interesting mathematical points, such as alignment of windows with the equinoxes. She's also a great bargainer with good driving and escort contacts.

Our two day tour with Nahla was excellent. From her picking us at the airport to the end of our tour she did a wonderful job. Her narrations of Karnak, Luxor Temple, Valley of the Kings and other sites were exceptional. We enjoyed our conversations with Nahla about Luxor, it's culture and it's people. She was sincere, personable, and possessed a sense of humor. We had fun "hanging out" with her. Having Nahla as our guide in Luxor was one of highlights of our trip to Egypt. Highly recommended. Great value.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Darell wish you and your family all the best and sincerely looking to see you and Joy in Luxor back in near future , your review made my day thank you milion times

You are the 5th Star Nahla! The sunrise Balloon Ride over the Nile, which I did at your suggestion, is my over-arching memory of Luxor! It was an amazing, unforgettable experience. Everybody should do it! Thank you Nahla for being the best guide - passing on your Egyptian knowledge, taking care of all my needs and making me feel so special. It made a huge difference to me. Thank you Tours by Locals for helping me arrange my Luxor Tour. I continue to sing your praises to anyone who will list
Nahla proved to be above and beyond any expectations we had. We were two mature couples travelling together, we were extremely excited about having the opportunity to visit Luxor. Nahla was informed and interesting, organised and intuitive of our needs with the heat. She surprised us with extras such as lunch on the Nile. She is such a delightful person, her knowledge of the archeological sites in Luxor seemed endless and her passion for her city evident. We would highly recommend Nahla.
