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.

Bit of a problem with the pickup as I was not contacted by the guide and the hotel had 2 lobbies. The agent didn’t respond which resulted in an hour delay. Guide was good. I had an issue as they change vehicles half way through but don’t tell you, so I had valuables in the other vehicle and the one we got in had other peoples bags.

Everything went perfect from the picking up in the morning until the drop off in the afternoon. Our guide Mahmud Nafee was very good, helpfull, very well informed with answers to all our questions and helped us to easily " navigate" throughout the crowd and enjoy the moments. He had answers to our questions, he had stories and really helped us to enjoy with no stress of "what" or "how" or "where". We managed to cover all we planned and to see and understand all. i openly recommend the guide and the company. Thanks for a perfect day!
