Thanks George!!! We had a fun and fantastic time...one of the best experiences ever! Even my son who has a fear of heights thoroughly enjoyed our hot air balloon ride. Highly recommended George.
George is a very informative tour guide, and going with him was a great way to efficiently see everything I wanted to see in a manageable time frame. He picked me up on time from the train station and we headed directly to the West Bank, followed by the East Bank and Luxor / Karnak temples. He provides a great background and colour to what you see, and I would highly recommend going with him.
Gerges was very professional and considerate of our diverse needs, as we were travelling with small children and grandparents. We had only a half-day with him, but we managed to pack in a lot, thanks to his expertise. Many thanks.
George was wonderful. He has an amazing knowledge of Egyptology and made our trip both enjoyable and educational. Thank you George
On arrival in Luxor, the Thomson Rep recommended tours organised by the company. However. I found the price steep. Instead I organised all trips/ activities through George, I secured 6 hours on the West Bank, 1 hour camel ride and a felluca trip to banana island. The trip to the West Bank was fantastic, an air conditioned Van arrived promptly at 7.30am. The tour guide, George, was superb, completely professional. Very knowlegable and instructive. He helped us not only understand the hisory of the valleys but also guided us through hoards of local salesmen and taught us basic arabic. I recommend George to anyone hoping to visit Luxor, I travelled as a single mum, with 3 children.
