Full description

Our delegate will pick up you from your hotel in Hurghada at about 11:00 pm. After pick-up from your hotel, drive to Luxor 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.

Upon arrival in Luxor in the early morning, a representative will greet you and take you to a cafe to try some local tea. You’ll then enjoy a hot air balloon ride for 45: 60 minutes to watch the sun come up over the archaeological sites of Luxor.

Next, head to the west bank of Luxor to visit the Valley of the Kings. Here you will explore the 3 most important tombs and see the walls full of hieroglyphs.

Your guide will then take you to the most important temple of the complex, the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut. The temple consists of three floors with open balconies built of limestone, with statues of the god Osiris and Queen Hatshepsut.

Then, you will visit the Valley of the Workers (Deir el-Medina). This is the place where the workmen of the royal tombs used to live. Here you will see the Temple of Deir el-Medina, which was dedicated to the goddess Hathor.

This is the only temple in all of Egypt where you can admire the carvings of the Final Judgement. 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.

Next, See the mortuary temple of Amenhotep III at the Colossi of Memnon, then stop for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, enjoy a felucca ride. Enjoy a refreshing cup of traditional Egyptian tea (for free).

You’ll then head to the east bank to visit the biggest temple in Luxor, It's the Karnak Temple. dedicated to the god Amun, his wife Mut, and their son Khonsu.

Next, move on to Luxor temple. Built by Amenhotep III in the 18th Dynasty in the modern kingdom, the beautiful temple was completed by Ramses II.

Finally, you’ll then be transferred to your hotel again in Hurghada.

We had high expectations for the trip based on the positive reviews. These were not only met, but exceeded. The driver, Bomba, not only convinced us with his good driving style and comfortable limousine, but also with his very warm, open and honest manner. At first we were a little afraid of getting into a strange car at night. But he took care of us so well that the fear quickly disappeared. The hot air balloon ride was just in time for sunrise and the trip would have been worth it for that alone. Amar showed us Luxor and its sights with very good German. He was also very courteous, friendly and explained everything to us with passion. We felt very well looked after with Bomba and Amar and very safe at all times. The meal overlooking the Nile was also excellent. It was a great day that we won't soon forget. Many thanks to everyone! (Also to the support of GYG)

Very warm welcome from the driver and the guide. Excellent pick-up at the hotel and return very well too ☺️ Then with the guide the explanations were clear not too long not too short and well imagined for the Valley of the Kings then for example. The food was good (all you can eat buffet). In terms of timing, the day went very well without a hitch between the hot air balloon, joining the guide, visiting the different sites. Very good I highly recommend this activity to have your eyes and ears full. nice job
