Full description

Meet your Egyptologist tour guide and start your journey in a private air-conditioned vehicle. Relax in comfort as you travel to explore the most important historical monuments in Luxor.

Choose between a tour of both the East and West banks, or visit only one side of the Nile according to your preferences. On the West bank, discover the Valley of Kings where you will visit the remarkable tombs and last resting place of the Kings Ramsses III, Ramsses VI, and Mrenptah.

If you've booked an entrance to the tomb of Tutankhamun (available as an add-on), you'll then see the most iconic Egyptian tomb known world-wide.

Then, proceed to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, dedicated to a female ruler who reigned over Egypt for 20 years, bringing the country wealth and peace. See the mortuary temple of Amenhotep III at the Colossi of Memnon, then stop for lunch at a local restaurant. On the East bank, witness the Complex of Karnak, which might be the largest temple in the world. You have one more stop before you leave the place: the magnificent Luxor Temple, a large ancient Egyptian temple which you will have time to explore.

our tour guide Ghada was excellent!! She was so knowledgeable and my husband and I walked away learning so much about ancient Egyptian culture. she even would pop quiz us to make sure we remembered stuff she asked earlier. she was so nice when we would occasionally forget (sorry the names were hard for us). There was a lot of information! you can really hear the passion Ghada has for ancient Egyptian history and it makes you want to dive into it as well. Definitely book with them to immerse yourself in the culture. Ghada was also super patient with us and we never felt rush as we took time to really take in the beauties at valley of the kings, Karnak and luxor temple. We even got to see the papyrus paper making and alabaster making as well which are things we didn't even know about! such a great day with Ghada we hope to see her again.

Beautiful experience as far as what there is to visit, all gorgeous! a little less, as far as our guide is concerned, very experienced and ready to explain everything to us, but at the end of the tour he explicitly asked us for a tip, as if it were an obvious thing to do
