We were looking to have a private tour starting in Luxor and found Egyptraveluxe through a Cairo contact I had, Ahmed helped select an excellent cruise ship and all the additional sights I was looking for including arranging the special tombs of Seti I and Nefertari. Fantastic location and itinerary with an amazing cruise on the May Fair which was topped by very helpful and informative guides. Highly recommended and don't forget to go to Abydos and Dendera. Each day was better then the one before. Thanks Ahmed
