    The tour was good. We were able to move from one place to another very quickly. You can expect to see most of the major sightseeing spots in Luxor. However, the tour includes visit to souvenir shops, even if you tell them you are not interested. Though this is usually the case

    Dear Valued Guest Thank you for taking the time to review our tours .. We are really happy that you enjoyed your trip and it was nice and good as described in your review We would like to clear that your tour was PRIVATE and you are the one who decide to leave or stay in every sightseeing , there is no need to expect what to see as the itinerary specify all the included sightseeing clearly and your tour had plenty of time in each location and all of places in the itinerary have been done without missing anything ** There is no souvenir shops , it was only one optional stop between the west and east bank tours and the guide offered you if you want to see the alabaster factory and what they have as all guides in all tours around Egypt OFFER and it was your decision to go and you got your FREE welcome drink and listened to the explanation and you could use the bathroom there as well because there is bathroom in the west bank desert here , there was no obligation from the beginning to the end , you left when you decided to ** For the train , you are right sometimes in the train they leave the air-con on so it gets cold , good tip for our future guests specially we can't help it for the air-con of the train We really appreciate every word you have written and we will do our best to make our service meet our guests' desires All the Best Egypt Best Holidays Team
