Great experience and incredible knowledge about everything we saw and asked questions about. Definitely can recommend for everyone coming to Luxor.
Fantastic Luxor Tour
My guide Ahmed Aziz was fantastic. He knew everything there is to know and was a great guide throughout. I had the best experience exploring the sites, and Magic Carpet agency were easy to contact and provided me with everything I needed. I would definitely use them again.
Great guide and service
Mansour is a great guide with exceptional knowledge about the visited sites and egyptian history. He gives a 5-10 min presentation of each attraction when we arrive each of them, then time to explore by ourself and ask him questions, which he happily answers. Perfect English, great service, new and air conditioned car and safe driver. The tour covers all the major attractions in Luxor in a perfect amount of time. Recommend this!…
From transportation to the knowledge everything was great. I definitely recommend this experience to anyone!!!
Great tour, excellent guide
Spent a day with Sherry exploring the West Bank and had an absolutely amazing time. She is kind, very knowledgeable and super funny. Explained us patiently about the historic places and artifacts, interpretations of hieroglyphs and ancient religion. She took us to get refreshing drinks, pointed out beautiful picture opportunities, helped to find quality souvenirs and learn about local crafts. 100% recommended! The planning, payment, transport and execution of this day tour was very smooth and easy too.…

EXCELLENT Based on 85 reviews.
It was a great trip. From the beginning to the end everything was very well organized. If we come back to Luxor we will do the same Tour with the same company
Magic Carpet is trustworthy. Very reliable staff. We were looked after very well from the accomodation to all the sightseeing tours. Egypt is beautiful and the tour guide is well knowledgeable, speaks English well. We enjoyed our 3 days with them. Thanks Amed, Adel and our driver Ahmed. Highly recommended.
It was a great experience, our guide was a very friendly and helpful man. I definitely recommend them.
Si vous voulez en savoir plus sur la civilisation fascinante des pharaons, Shimiaa Rabie répondra à toutes vos interrogations. Ne vous souciez pas de la barrière de la langue, les échanges en anglais sont très fluides. Ce fut une très agréable visite grâce à la gentillesse et la patience de Shimiaa Rabie. Nous vous recommandons les yeux fermés la visite de la rive ouest de Louxor à ses côté (vallée des rois, Temple Hatchepsout et Temple Medinet Habu) !
I have had the most wonderful experience with Magic Carpet. Mr Emad is a great professional and so is the guide of my tour today, Mansur. They are punctual, kind, honest, and very helpful. Their pickup service is just perfect as well as the other services they offer. They do their best to provide their clients with whatever they need. Besides, they charge a fair price for their services. I was very positively impressed by their sense of ethics and the importance they give to every client. I visited 5 temples with a lot of input about Egyptian history from Mr Mansur and was treated with kindness, respect and patience all the journey long. The guide's English is excellent too and he always checks if the clients have questions, answering them all in a knowledgeable manner. I highly recommend Magic Carpet! It is an oasis for customers like me who travel alone as well as for people travelling with a partner or in group. This company is ready for any situation. In sum, it is important to underscore that the assistance they have given me demonstrates their commitment to efficiency and high quality. I am very happy in Egypt and I owe part of this happiness to their wonderful service.
We Loved every single moment of our tour ! Our guide Sayed is the best of the best! he is very experienced, professional has great knowledge of Egyptian History, and also participated in many arqueologic excavations, I learned so much,, it was a pleasure to meet someone with so much passion for his work and culture! Thank you! I also wanted to add that the Luxor trip with our guide Hassan was also incredible he is very nice, I want to thank Esra, and the driver tha drive us around luxor!!

Great organization and service. Will recommend it to friends!
Thanks to Magic Carpet for a wonderful visit to the ancient temples and monuments near Luxor and beyond! Our host Sherry and driver Mahmoud were fantastic hosts. Sherry did a wonderful job reviewing the history of the temples we visited. She also did well engaging our two kids (one teenager and another pre-teen). I appreciate that she pointed out repeated hieroglyphics for a few of the gods. It was fun to look for them in different temples. These small touches helped to make our visit exciting for my children. Sherry is very knowledgeable about the various temples and history.
I also appreciated our driver, Mahmoud, making a few stops; once for falafel and another time for fresh fruit. Mahmoud was hospitable and timely. He handled our transportation with ease.
Both Sherry and Mahmoud were accommodating and kind. We woke very early to meet them and get on the road or beat the crowds. I appreciated that they both were willing to get going early. They represented Magic Carpet well!
I booked 3 days with Magic Carpet Travel in June and added a 4tht:
- Dendera and Abydos
- Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut Temple, Ramses III Temple (We also added th Worker’s village)
- Luxor and Karnak Temples (We added a trip to Esna)
- Transportation to Aswan stopping at Edfu and Kom Ombo (We arranged this after arriving in Luxor)
Our arrangements were initially made via the hotel where we stayed, The Nefertiti Hotel.
Advise for others considering visiting Luxor:
- Spend a little time researching before you travel to Luxor! There is much to see and knowing specifically where you would like to visit so that you can arrange ahead of time is helpful! Also knowing some of the history is quite beneficial.
- Visit Dendera and Abydos. Both these temples were worth the time and the trip. This is the best kept secret that isn't so secret.
- Get familiar with understanding when it is appropriate to tip and how much! This can be a bit tricky to navigate at first. I know we didn't get it right on several occasions.
- Wake early. Whether you are traveling close or near, it's helpful to get up early to beat the crowds or get on the road early to beat the times when cruise ships start arriving at attractions. Magic Carpet was very accommodating and willing to meet early.
- If I were to reschedule these tours, I would ask to skip the shops after the tours. We stopped at a statue shop, perfume shop and shop for scarves. If you like this sort of thing, go for it. For me, I was focused on the history and modern culture. I cared less about bringing home souvenirs. That said, we did buy a few things.
- Bring toilet paper with you. Sometimes we were without...
We had a great tour of the local highlights of Luxor with Emad. He was very personable and chatted very casually about different neighborhoods and the history of the city. Would recommend!
