    During our stay in marsa alam we booked a day tour to Luxor with this company. We were transferred to luxor by a private air conditioned car where we met by our private tou guide. We had an excellent day tour and saw the sites that were previously agreed on.

    This was the BEST tour we ever had in our life.Big THANKS to our tour guides and drivers. I am not able to describe their excellent organization and their warm hospitality since we were picked from our hotel till they dropped us back.

    My wife and I recently had a visit to Kom Ombo from Marsa Alam. This company came highly recommended from a professional colleague and we were not disappointed. The tour operator put together a tight, informative program with a well qualified and experienced guide for the two of us.
