We took the tour to Luxor and had an amazing time. It was a sight I didn't know much about but our English tour guide Said helped us fall in love with the city quickly. We saw so much of the city as you will...More
If you’d love to discover ancient Egypt but don’t want to waste money on a night away from your resort, this Luxor day trip is the tour for you. Check off four key Luxor highlights: the Valley of the Kings, the temples of Hatshepsut and Karnak, and the Colossi of Memnon. With door-to-door transport, lunch and a guide, there’s no need to worry about a thing.
Expect pickup early in the morning and transfer by air-conditioned coach to Luxor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where your guide will meet you. First, cross the Nile to the West Bank and the famous Valley of the Kings, with 63 royal tombs dating back almost 4,000 years: The elaborate art that decorates their walls gives an insight into how Egypt’s rulers lived.
Next, visit the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahari, a tribute to Egypt’s gender-bending female pharaoh, and the giant statues known as the Colossi of Memnon.
Cross back to the East Bank and relax with a traditional local lunch before you explore the vast Temple of Karnak. Finish with a visit to an alabaster factory and a papyrus bazaar before your coach drops you back at your hotel.
Private tour is the way to travel. We had a private car with our guide. Spent the day in Luxor and enjoyed a wonderful day exploring the sites. Ensure you pay to take photos in the tomb’s or leave your in your pocket.
Enjoyed the trip. Great for kids. The nile cruise is an extra cost. It would be better to sell this upfront as my husband had to withdraw extra cash. You cant get to lunch venue without the cruise. I think it was 10 euro each
Excellent guides and staff, compassionate and understanding. All the transport used was very comfortable and in good condition. Water and snacks given on arrival and through it the day. Well worth doing to one of the greatest cultural experiences around. Thoroughly a brilliant day. Thanks...More
