Tour’s Program

In the morning you will be picked up from Luxor Airport or your hotel/port in Luxor for a full guided trip of about 5 hours. First you will be transported to the Necropolis of Thebes, the Valley of the Kings on the West Bank of Luxor. This ancient necropolis consists of tombs embedded in the mountain Thebes. Here you visit 3 tombs of various dynasties. Your Egyptologist tour guide will be on hand to recommend and advise you as to which tombs to visit. After visiting the tombs you will be transported to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the only woman ever to reign over Egypt as pharaoh. Afterwards, you will be taken to see the Colossi of Memnon, the two largest ancient statues in Egypt.
To conclude your day you have the choice to ride either a horse, camel or donkey, to enjoy the countryside, the farms and the local lifestyle.
After finishing you will be transferred back to your hotel.
On day two, there is a possibility of optional hot air ballooning over the West Bank (additional cost and weather permitting).
After breakfast you will be picked up from your hotel for a full guided trip of about 4 hours. First, you visit Karnak in the East Bank of Luxor. Karnak is a complex of temples built in different reigns, starting with the Avenue of Sphinxes, the Hypostyle hall, the Obelisks of Queen Hatshepsut, Temple of Amon adorned with lotus and papyrus designs and the Granite Scarbeus of Amenophis III. Karnak beats every other pharaonic monument: it is simply one of the most beautiful ancient monuments in Egypt. After Karnak you will be taken to Luxor Temple, which is dedicated to the Theben Triad of Amun-Ra, Mut and Khonsu. There you will see the granite statues of Ramses the Great. These ancient temples are a must-see for Luxor travelers. At every site you will get information from your Egyptologist tour guide and you will get free time to explore the ancient monuments by yourself.
Enjoy sailing with a traditional felucca on the Nile for 2 hours to see the sunset to conclude your day tour.
After finishing the tours you will be transferred back to Luxor Airport or your hotel/port in Luxor.
