A lovely experience

A lovely trip , the driver Ahmed was very attentive and provided us with refreshments (which is extremely important considering the hot weather) . The guide Said is knowledgeable and is doing his best to provide a good experience also makes sure that people on his party are not harassed by vendors. I really enjoyed the experience

Lovely trip today, starting from the pick up, really punctual at 4:20am, the driver was ready with plenty of snacks, water, soft drink and hot tea! All included and always asking if we where okey or wanted something else, we actually finished all the water and the driver stopped to get some more. The mini bus was really comfortable with air conditioning, TV and also WiFi. As per the trip everything was as explained above, with a local gide who speaks clear English, he was telling lot of interesting things about everything and everywhere including in the bus while going from one to another place. All the tickets for the temples and the valley of Kings where included in the price. The restaurant for the included lunch was really nice with friendly staff, with a selection of few dishes including fish and chicken. We also decided to take the trip by boat in the Nile with one was 45 min for 10£ totally worth it!. In general everything was really good and really enjoyed this tour! Wouldn't doubt on do it again!

After being picked up promptly at 4am, we made our way across the desert to Luxor. Our driver was fantastic and made sure all our needs were met, including providing refreshments and snacks. We stopped on route for a quick toilet break- this was purposely fast to ensure we were the first bus from Hurghada to arrive at Karnak Temple. There we met our guide, Said, who is incredibly knowledagble and passionate about the ancient history of Egypt. He made the tour a brilliant experience. To anyone considering this tour, I strongly recommend booking with this company.

What an amazing experience. Ahmed our driver was very prompt, attentive and constantly checked if we needed anything. Mini bus was 1st class and really comfortable. All English group and just 6 of us which made it more personal. He got us to luxor as one of the very first group so there was no queues etc. Here we met our guide Said. He was so knowledgeable and answered all questions. Boat ride was amazing and I totally recommend having the extra long one. 45 minutes up and down the Nile. Could definitely go on forever about everything we saw and did. If you only do one trip out in Hurghada you should do this one. Ahmed and Said were simply the best driver and guide we have had on any excursion. The trip, the food, all the sights and even the long drive. Absolutely perfect

BEST TRIP EVER!
PAUL_R

This was THE BEST TRIP we have ever went on! It was so well organised, the guides were superb and went out there way to make sure you have a fun day. It was a packed itinerary with amazing sights, food, travel and transport. You get to go to all the destinations before the masses of tourists and avoid all queues. The history is astounding, the destinations are a once in a lifetime for some and you are so well looked after and cared for. The transport was limited to 6 tourists with plenty of space and comfort when being driven around, we were first at the buffet and the Nile cruise, with only your accompanying people on the tour. The destinations are truly out of this world and an absolute must bucket list trip. Do not miss out on this. I cannot recommend this enough and only wish for more stars to be able to be given. There should be a platinum 5 star option available to give for this day trip! Please use this tour operator as we have had nothing like this level of care and attention and tour guides with superb knowledge. They are AMAZING!

Great host, some unsafe driving, 45 minutes longer than it should of been
Tracy_G
, Nov 2021
Overall this was a long but good day. It didnt start off great as we felt the journey there was a little scary and unsafe. One of our drivers appeared to be in a race with another mini bus driver, he was also driving way to close to other traffic, so much so that when we pulled up the other driver came shouting at our driver and obviously complaining about him to the police! The day itself was fab, the host Siad was so knowledgeable and passionate and friendly! As we were split into 2 groups on arrival at the end of the day upon meeting the other group back at the mini van we were quite disappointed to learn that we were dropping the other group off again to do a boat ride while we drove around for 45 minutes. This doesnt seem long but when the journey back to our hotel was 4.5 hours this extra 45 minutes was a knightmare.

Excellent well organised tour

Our tour was very well organised, and as it was made up from three nationalities we were provided with three guides, our guide Said, from Ramashka tours was very knowledgeable and friendly. We had an excellent day, so much so that we booked another tour with them, this time to Cairo .

OMG this trip was even more amazing than I ever thought. Getting to see and touch some of the tombs was very special. The heat was exhausting about 45 - 50 degrees cel. Thanks to Atif-driver & Said-guide and especially Mr Ahmed thank you for the birthday cake. The memories from Luxor will always be remembered a trip everyone should take.

Trip was well worth it and the tour guide was very knowledgeable and made us feel safe and how to handle to local sales people. The sites were amazing. The driver to pick us up feel asleep therefore picked us up late. We waitied around 4am for him and eventually the manager came to pick us up to join the rest of the trip tourists. there is a river nile trip that was not mentioned that you will need to pay 200 egp if you wish to go.

Good, but need improvement
Mykyta_V
, Feb 2020
The tour itself is great. And Farhid is indeed a good guide. A couple of points of improvement should be done to have the perfect the tour: - include the boat tour (and not make people pay 15 euros for it on last minute) - have more explanations on what we visit, dates, explanations about the Egyptian culture and religion. Too many anecdotes have been told with not enough real facts. - improve the quality of the lunch. The food is really bad and the place dirty, it’s better to have a sandwich than to loose 1 hour in this place. - drive not as fast, people were afraid in the bus, and the drive was really dangerous. Also the bus is not comfortable for such a long journey. Apart of that, the tour is great and the monuments impressive. I’m quite a picky consumer and some people would say it’s enough. But the company should not just count on buildings built 4000 years ago to make the experience great, more added value can be expected. Independently on the money people pay.

Great trip very well organised and went smoothly. Said our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us a good insight into ancient Egypt. The cushions and goodie bag on the mini bus are a lovely touch . Would recommend this trip to anyone looking to go to the valley of the kings ,very good value for money.

Luxor Wonders in One Day
Nick P
, Jan 2020
An ambitious programme sandwiched between two long minibus trips proved to be a great success and a wonderful day out, full of with terrific memories. Ramashka Tours provided a really good personal service and we were happy to be in their friendly, safe and efficient hands. The new Toyota minibus was very comfortable and well equipped, even having a video screen for movies and Egyptian history documentaries to keep us entertained. We met our guide Sayed in Luxor and he did a great job throughout the day, enabling us to see all the highlights on offer in Luxor - and there are many of them. Sayed gave us a very interesting and informative commentary which engaged all the members of our group, in particular our youngest son, aged 10. He also provided good advice regarding souvenirs and dealing with street traders. Even though we were limited to the one day, our guide Sayed ensured we saw all the best bits of the Karnak Temple, the Valley of the Kings, Queen Hatsetshup's temple and viewed all of Luxor's other major attractions, by land and also by boat, during a very enjoyable trip on the Nile. The lunch was very good too, at a very nice restaurant overlooking the Nile. We found the experience of visiting the ancient tombs in the Valley of the Kings to be quite exhilarating and this was aided significantly by our excellent guide and tour company
