Hurghada to Luxor day tour starts early morning to explore the amazing sights of Ancient Egypt in Luxor. After picking you up from your hotel in Hurghada, we will drive to Luxor in an air-conditioned vehicle this is will take around 4 hours.
We will start with the famous Karnak Temple- the largest religious place that was ever built. Its ancient name was 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 Karnak temple, you will enjoy your freshly cooked lunch in a Nile view restaurant with a variety of choices. Vegetarians should inform us in advance to arrange vegetarian dishes.
After lunch, we continue to the Colossi of Memnon and admire the 2 massive stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III.
Next, learn about Egypt’s female ruler at the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut beautiful murals on its inner walls and in the end discover a land of mystery, complexity,
The next stop will be the famed valley of the kings that dates back nearly 4,000 years. See the royal tombs, decorated with scenes from Egyptian mythology that give clues to the beliefs and funerary rituals of the period. Almost all of the tombs have been opened and robbed in antiquity, but they still give an idea of the opulence and power of the rulers of the time.

A trips to karnack temple and valley of the kings included. Full day of sight-seeing - had a fantastic and memorable trip with fully experienced tour guide who was incredibly knowledgeable - learned a great deal in a very short space of time!! Travel was on an air-conditioned coach - long day, but inevitably so given the distance involved (4 hrs each way) - but we were provided with an english speaking guide courtesy of the travel company for the entire day for our group of just five people. Only slight issues we had with the trip were the fact that an 'optional' excursion to banana island was very heavily pushed - and turned out to be combined with our trip, which meant we had no choice but to stay on the coach for the duration of that trip (1.5 hrs) while others who opted to take up the trip visited the island. Nevertheless, the trip was very worthwhile for the money involved - Very good value for money and significantly cheaper than if we had paid through thomas cook - for essentially the very same trip!! Friendly, efficient and highly recommended. :) Even called to ensure we had a great trip Thanks for everything over 2 excellent trips....we'll definitely book with you if/when we visit again!!
