Early morning the tour guide will pick you up at 04.30 am by A/C VAN from your hotel In Hurghada for the drive to Luxor.

Temples of Karnak:
You will start your trip from the east bank by exploring tour to the famous Temples of Karnak, the largest place of worship that was ever built. Its ancient name Ipet-isut means “the most sacred of places.” The temple, or, more correctly, the complex of temples, was built more than two thousand years ago by generation after generation of pharaohs. Within the complex, the great “Hypostyle Hall” is an incredible forest of giant pillars.

After a fantastic morning exploring some of Luxor's impressive temples, we'll relax along the Nile at a local restaurant for a delicious Lunch with a wonderful Nile view.

Valley of the Kings:
After lunch, you will take an afternoon trip to the west bank of the Luxor where is The Valley of The Kings, where, the magnificent tombs discovered, those tombs were carved deep into the desert rock, richly decorated and filled with treasures for the afterlife of the pharaohs. One of the most remarkable archaeological destinations in the world, the valley is known to contain 63 tombs and chambers ranging in size from a simple pit to a complex tomb with over 120 chambers.

The royal necropolis known in ancient times as "the Place of Truth." On our tour of the Valley of the Kings, we'll explore these magnificent tombs, belonging to past kings such as King Tutankhamun and the Sons of Ramesses II. It was widely believed that the Valley of the Kings had given up all its secrets and that all the tombs had been found throughout the thousands of years since their construction, however, Howard Carter's find of king Tutankhamen's tomb in 1922 proves that there may still be tombs waiting to be found.

Hatshepsut Temple:
After the Valley of the Kings, you will visit the funeral temple of Queen Hatshepsut the only female pharaoh rises out this beautiful temple which is different to many other ancient Egyptian temples with its lengthy terraces split over 3 levels. It's also called "temple of Al Dier El Bahari". The architect Senenmut inspired by the Temple Of Mentuhotep and reproduced its terraces and porticos at this temple. Your tour guide will detail this magnificent temple's history, including why it's so historically and architecturally important.

The Colossi of Memnon:
Before leaving the west bank you will see the colossi of Memnon, listen to the story of these 2 statues and to know how they have stood in the Theban necropolis For the past 3400 years, moreover, you will have the chance to take a memorable picture there

Visit Banana Island by boat (optional):
You will sail along the Nile and view the countryside of Upper Egyptian and islands, then you will visit this wonderful island to enjoy its fresh air and tasty fruits.

Shopping:
By the end of the first day, you'll spend about 1 hour exploring Luxor markets where you can make shopping like to visit a perfume shop & Papyrus Institute.

After seeing Luxor's most impressive sights on our famous tour of Luxor from Hurghada we'll travel back to your hotel in Hurghada by air-conditioned coach, getting back around 8.00 pm in the evening after what we know will have been a most enjoyable day.

Enjoyable day in Luxor!

“Our pick up from the hotel was at 5:15am. Our (private) driver was on time & very friendly. You have to remember that the driving in Egypt is far from similar to European standards. You just have to trust the driver & that is exactly what we did.
The drive to Luxor takes roughly 4hrs. With one rest stop.
Our guide was ready to meet us when we arrived in Luxor, Karnak Temple. We were one of the first few people at the temple in the morning. Not a lot of people. Our guide was very informative, telling us about the temple and it’s little details. Followed by free time to roam & take pictures.
We discussed our preferences with our tour guide about what we would like to see & didn’t want to see. Sure he will ask you a few times if your sure on opting out on anything (like the boat ride on the Nile), but he will respect your decision.
At the restaurant there was a nice selection of salads, chicken/meat & cooked vegetables. As well as desserts. The food is included in the price, however the drinks are not. A soda costs roughly 30 Egyptian Pounds. There’s bathrooms to freshen up in too.
Our next stop was Valley of the Kings. You’re not allowed to take pictures outside. There are many signs. I advise you follow them. You’re given a ticket & you’ll be able to visit 3 tombs. Such a breathtaking experience. Detailed & colorful hieroglyphics spread across every surface.
Hatshepsut temple was our final stop. A beautiful temple cascaded by mountains. Sadly most of it is restored however, still a beautiful sight.
We opted out on seeing the papyrus & albatros stores. Since we only wanted to see the ancient sites & not go shopping.
Don’t forget to tip your tour guide & driver after the trip!”
Smooth and easy tour

“My friend and I really enjoyed this long day trip, particularly as we had our own private car all day, and own tour guide, meaning we could move between sites as quickly or slowly as we wanted, with no waiting around at all. Felt safe, although would have preferred to avoid sales attempts during the day.”
