This Trip we would 100% recommend.
It started with our fantastic driver Ahmed who made sure we was the 1st travel bus to arrive so we get amazing pictures before the crowds come. Our Tour guide Said was very professional and knowledgeable. He explained everything! He was fantastic!
I would recommend you take something to cover your head because the heat is intense but the van is air-conditioned. Take money for tips for all day... we took about 450 Egyptian pounds which isn't much in £English.
Highly recommend using Ramashka Tour... Ahmed our Driver and Said our tour guide!

A very jam packed day but worth every minute! We picked this tour/tour company based on the Trip Advisor reviews and we weren’t disappointed.
We were staying in the Makadi Bay Area and were collected at 5am by the air conditioned mini bus. Ahmed went above and beyond both our journey to Luxor and back, providing refreshments, bottles of water, coke cola, fresh juices, snacks, and we even stopped for the sugar cane drink on the way home. The journey was long (as was expected) we arrived in Luxor around 9:30am and had stopped only once for a quick bathroom break (there are no toilets on the mini bus). At the Temple of Karnak we met our English speaking guide Said, he was a wealth of knowledge, as we arrived early the crowds were low and I got some lovely pictures without other people being in them! We collected the bus after about 2hrs and a short trip up the road stopped for the included buffet lunch (drinks are not included). After lunch we went on the river Nile boat trip (make sure you bring some extra cash for this trip, it was £10 GBP each, you could also pay in Egyptian, US Dollars) the boat trip was about 45 minutes and travelled along the Nile and dropped us off on the other side (West side). We met the bus again and another short ride took us to the Valley of the Kings. Said picked three tombs for us to visit (the ones he considers the best) and they were amazing (the detail/colours and how much is still intact is just incredible). Back on the mini bus we took a very short trip to the alabaster factory, now I wasn’t particularly looking forward to this part of the trip as thought it would be gimmicky/them trying to sell you items. How wrong I was! This was a very entertaining stop, and interesting, the people were lovely and not pushy like they are in the markets, and we did end up buying some high quality souvenirs. From here we travelled on to the Temple of Hatshepsut, again stunningly beautiful and Said again provided a wealth of knowledge about the Temple. We made our final stop at the Colossi of Memnon, this was just a quick photo stop and from here we left Luxor at around 4:30pm.
A very long day, however this was the best day trip we have done abroad, and the architecture and history amazing! I would highly recommend using Ramashka Tours, everyone went above and beyond looking after us.
Just make sure you bring some cash/coins for using the toilets, drinks at the restaurant, and tips (I also recommend carrying your own toilet roll with you, as toilet paper is in short supply, although Amed did provide paper, it’s so much easier if you have it on you!).

We booked with Ramashka tours after reading very good reviews!

We booked very last minute via what’s app, the communication was very easy and prompt .

We were collected on time at 5am from our hotel. As promised we were the first bus to arrive from Hurghada in 3.5hours! Ahmed our tour guide for the bus and the driver both got us through all stops very quickly! He was very informative along the route from Hurghada to Luxor.

As for the itinerary it was jam packed - when we arrived at Karnak we were met by Said our tour guide for around the sights in Luxor. Said was very knowledgable and patient. We were lucky to arrive at Karnak so early as we able to walk around see the sights before the masses of crowds arrived.
He continued with us to the valley of the kings and the temple of Hatshepsut and other points of interest. We felt Said taught us a lot of information and answered all our questions. I highly recommend his as a guide.

Lunch was included in the excursion, this was nice enough a buffet overlooking the Nile. We were also provided with plenty of snacks hot tea and cold drinks on our mini bus.

Extras - so we paid extra for a nile cruise, although enjoyable and getting to see the temple of Luxor from the river it was a little bit expensive. There is lots of little extra costs like tipping so make sure if you book bring small change!

As a family of 4 with 2 children aged 13 & 10 this was a very great day out! Luxor is a must visit if you are in Egypt.
We highly recommend Ramashka tours.

All round magnificent day. The weather was very beautiful and warm. Ahmed the organiser picked us up on time and we made our way to luxor our driver Ahmed was really good he drove to luxor in no time. We were then met by our tour guide said who was phenomenal soo much knowledge and passion. He even went above and beyond and bought my daughter a gift from the stone factory. Such a warm bunch of people the tour guide and the driver and the organiser they all were very friendly and smiling all the time. Luxor has a lot of history and said did a great job of portraying that. We also went to Cairo with Ramakhsha tours and had a great time and now Luxor both experiences were excellent no issues at all. If your coming to Egypt and you really want to explore Cairo or Luxor these are the guys for you they are a patient and caring bunch would recommend to anyone that wants a good experience and a lot of knowledge about ancient Egyptian history.

Ramashka Tours are number 1 in all of lower and upper
Egypt.

Said, Ahmed & Ahmed are great people. They were very thoughtful and knowledgable. There were lots of well considered things provided to make sure all the guests were comfortable e.g. (Drinks, snacks, Wi-Fi, cushions, air con, Fresh sugar cane juice, helpful advice, changing money, DVD player).

Ahmed said that there were hundreds of buses making the same journey to Karnak temples every day, but boldly claimed we would be there first so we could see it before the crowds. This is a big claim to make on a long journey, but he achieved it and we got to see the temples before the crowds.

The day was packed with interesting stops, but the pacing was good from Said, and they worked well as a team to make sure the next parts were organised and waiting in advance. It’s an early start, but just be prepared for that, and it needs to be, as you see so many amazing landmarks, have lunch, a boat trip etc.

If you are looking to book an excursion during your holiday then you should definitely book this tour, there is nothing to worry about and it’s great value.

Thanks Ramashka tours !

Both our driver Ahmed and our tour guide Said were brilliant. Professional, patient and clearly wanted us to have a really good time. Drinks on the bus were also really nice! Ahmed made sure we were the first bus to arrive from Hurghada and we were very glad for it because we really got ahead of the crowds. Said answered all our questions and was flexible with what exactly we were interested in seeing. He made good recommendations along the way.
Lunch was lovely, the food was authentic and served with smiles. Only drinks at lunch and the boat ride (optional) we're extra charge. A full, fun-packed day. Lots of water, suncream and hats recommended!
You will get hassled a lot to buy things and people will pretend to give you things for free (items, taking photos for you etc) and then ask for money in return after. Just be aware before you accept their offer that they will be expecting something in return.
The alabaster shop will also hike their prices for tourists. (£25-60 per item) for us. When we said no obviously the price dropped even from the discounted. We'd recommend just going with a budget of what you think it's worth and if it doesn't match, leave it :)
Thanks again to the wonderful Ramashka team for their care and patience.

Be prepared for a very long day, about 18 hours in total from pick up to drop off. Don’t be fooled if you get told differently.
Also don’t hold your breathe for sleep on the mini bus as the roads in Egypt are not kind for weary light sleepers and the bus is loud as the guides race to get you to the sights before the crowds. Therefore I would not recommend for anyone travelling with small children despite frequent breaks on the way.
Despite these points this trip is good value for money and is a jam packed day of sights and ideal for couples, sole travellers or older families. The guides and driver Ahmed are very helpful and I would listen to their advice to avoid getting bombarded by locals and street vendors looking to prey upon vulnerable tourists.
The valley of the kings and other sights are well worth booking and the tour company is reliable and genuine, something that isn’t always guaranteed in Egypt.

From the moment we were collected from the hotel by Ahmed (driver) and Said (your guide), it was non stop. Ahmed got us to Karnak Temples first thing before all the rest of the coach tours. It was a godsend, it was so busy by the time we left. Said explained everything brilliantly, even our 14yr old was kept interested all day. Lunch was included at a restaurant alongside the Nile, buffet style, lots to choose from. Next on a boat trip up the Nile which was brilliant, again Said continued to point things out to us. After the Nile crossing it was onto the Valley of the Kings and it did not disappoint. We went down into 3 tombs which were amazing, each time Said gave us all the history before we went in. A couple of other stops along the way, all very good, plenty of photo opportunities. Ahmed the driver provided us with croissants on the mini bus in the morning and supplied us with cold drinks throughout the day. He took no prisoners on the road! All in all a fabulous day. It was a very long, extremely hot day but was well worth it. It did not disappoint, infact it exceeded our expectations. Thank you Said and Ahmed😊

Perfect day out to explore the main gems of Luxor. Ahmed (the driver) was one of the first drivers to get us to Luxor, which gave us plenty of time to avoid the queues and take pictures. Said (the guide) was an absolute star! Very knowledgeable and friendly. Lunch was a buffet by the river nile and a small additional cost of £10 gbp for a ride on the river nile, which was optional. Would definitely recommend! Thanks Ramashka tours :)

Both the Ahmed’s who collected us from our Hotel were amazing and very much on time, they had snacks, drinks and much more on the mini van.
It was about 5hour journey until we arrived at Luxor we met with our English guide Said, he was very knowledgeable and helpful, the boat ride was an extra 200E£ but well worth it up the Nile.
On our route back to the hotel we were treated to sugarcane juice! And it was so refreshing!!
Would highly recommend booking this trip especially with Ramashka tours.
Remember to wear sunscreen and comfortable shoes!!
