We loved it and can’t recommend it to our friends enough. We will be back!!”
I’ve used AirBnB to stay many places – the States, Italy, England, Spain, The Netherlands, now Egypt – this hands down is the first time that the host truly made the difference. The space itself is beautiful and the views are breathtaking. We would have had a lovely experience if we had arrived and stayed without interacting with anyone at the flat. However, Mohamed along with his staff went above and beyond making us feel welcome in Luxor to create an even more memorable vacation. Mohamed facilitated everything we needed during our stay. He arranged a lovely driver to pick us up from the airport and take the worry of trying to navigate a foreign country on our own; the same driver ended up driving us around to the temples and the Valley of the Kings. He arranged a hot air balloon tour over Luxor (you MUST do this) and Mohamed was kind enough to drive us himself to the pick up spot for the hot air balloon company (at 3:30 AM, mind you). He made sure were there on time and kept us company until the driver was ready to take us to the launch site. He recommended a guide for the temples that was knowledgeable and worked with our schedule since it was very hot in June. Besides the typical tourist things, we were humbled that Mohamed invited us to join him for dinner, which we really enjoyed. All of the service staff were friendly and I just loved them, always a friendly greeting. There is a chef on site: I can’t stress enough how great the food was and I actually wished we ate more of our meals on site. I’m a picky eater but everything they made was fantastic. If you’re looking for somewhere to stay, stop looking and book here. We loved it and can’t recommend it to our friends enough. We will be back!
