About the tour

Come with me as I take you through the rural parts of the West Bank in Luxor. We will see the locals going about their daily lives and get a real snapshot of real Egyptian life! From the houses to the farming to nature and the culture this tour really will give you a view of Egypt not many have ever seen. Egypt is so much more than just history!

Meet your local guide


Lesley has been living in Egypt for more than 22 years and loves to explore the local areas of the city of Luxor. She has been leading hiking tours around Luxor now for more than 5 years and specialises in taking people off the beaten track to the agricultural areas and desert that skirt the ancient sites.

Lesley has been guiding since Feb 2015

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Luxor with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.

The tour will last about 30 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Luxor. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

A beautiful, slow-paced tour of sugar cane farming in Egypt. The tour was scenic and enjoyable.

Lesley is an amazing tour guide. If she is on foot or on her pony she does an amazing job! I love when she is with her pony though. It's an extra special treat. I love to hear that she went there on a vaca and found her true love. Know she has so much knowledge of this country it's amazing. I love taking her tours. I'm sure you will find them wonderful too.

We had a very interesting horseback ride with Lesley outside of Luxor! Lesley has a great personality and is very knowledgeable about Egypt. She went over the allotted time so she could give us a lovely sunset postcard. We'd happily tour with her again. Thank you!
