    This tour is a must. It was easy and well planned. We got picked up from our Hotel on time to take an early morning flight to Luxor from Cairo. Our Guide Hatem picked us up from Luxor airport and took us to all the sites to visit that day. He was knowledgeable and very flexible. He personalized the tour to suit our needs. I would highly recommend the tour.
