Pick up from your Sharm el Sheikh hotel and transfer to Sharm el Sheikh airport for your flight to Luxor. Arriving in Luxor our representative will meet and assist you at the airport before your sightseeing begins.
Your private Luxor day tour starts with a visit to the Valley of the Kings, the ancient burial ground of the Pharaohs from the New Kingdom, hidden in the limestone hills of Gurna. Your visit includes entry into 3 tombs, however if you wish to enter the tomb of Tutankhamun there is an additional ticket cost.
Visit the temple of Queen Hatshepsut with its unique design - the only temple in Egypt built in terrace formation into the cliff face. The relief sculpture within the temple recites the tale of the divine birth of a female pharaoh – the first of its kind, along with the first commercial trading expedition to the ancient land of Punt (today’s Somalia).
On leaving the West Bank, you will stop at the Colossi of Memnon which are the only remaining standing statues fronting the mortuary temple of Amenhotep III and show the pharaoh sitting on his throne.
Arriving back on the East Bank, take a relaxing felucca sail on the beautiful River Nile. After your sail, enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before visiting the magnificent Karnak Temple complex, the largest ancient temple complex in the world. Consisting of temples, chapels, obelisks, sanctuaries, a sacred lake and the imposing Hypostyle Hall of 134 gigantic columns, Karnak Temple is the second most visited site in Egypt.
Your Luxor tour ends with a visit to Luxor Temple, one of the wonderful temples of Egypt. Located in the heart of the city, and originally connected to Karnak Temple by the Avenue of Sphinx, Luxor Temple was of great significance to the ancient Egyptians.
