Luxor by air is fast becoming as popular as Cairo, for the European tourist. One of the main reasons for its popularity is that many tourists do not frequent Luxor as much as Cairo so you can guarantee the trip is more relaxed without the hustle and bustle that takes place especially when visiting Cairo and the airport is certainly not as hectic. it’s one of the trips that we cannot recommend highly enough.

Luxor is a city in the Upper (southern) Egypt and the capital of Luxor Governorate. As the site of the Ancient Egyptian city of Thebes (the great capital of Egypt during the New Kingdom), Luxor has frequently been characterized as the "world's greatest open air museum", as the ruins of the temple complexes at Karnak and Luxor stand within the modern city. Immediately opposite, across the River Nile, lie the monuments, temples and tombs on the West Bank Necropolis, which include the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. Thousands of international tourists arrive annually to visit these monuments.

Your pick-up time will be at about 4.30am (Exact details will be confirmed locally). You will be transferred to Sharm El Sheikh airport, then you will do fly to Luxor. In Luxor our professional Egyptologist will be waiting for you outside of the arrival hall of the airport, to escort you every step of the way that has all the answers to your questions.

Firstly you will drive to the West Bank of Luxor where you are going to see many things as following:

The Colossi of Memmon:

The Colossi of Memmon are two huge statues. They are the only remaining standing statues fronting the mortuary temple of the Imonhotep III.

The temple of El Deir - Elbahri (the temple of the queen Hatshepsut):

This temple is one of the most beautiful temples we have in Egypt. It had been cut into the mountain and was built by the queen Hatshepsut (the strong woman who ruled Egypt in the 15th century B.C.). It was used as her mortuary temple.

The Valley of the Kings:

When Luxor was the capital of Egypt, the kings chose this valley to be their burial place hidden among the hills. It contains more than 62 tombs cut by the kings from the 18th, 19th & 20th dynasties. The Valley of the Kings got its fame from the discovery the tomb of the golden king Tut Ankh Amon.

Finally you are going to take an experience for the life style of the local people on the West Bank, and you will also have the chance to know some of their handcrafts.

As soon as you will finish your visit on the West Bank, you will drive to the East Bank where you will take your lunch and have a break to be ready for the second part of the tour.

The East bank:

The Karnak Temples:

The complex of Karnak temples is the second biggest religious complex in all over the world!!!! It has the largest hypostyle hall (columned hall built by the king Ramses II) in the world with 134 columns. It was built by different generations of the pharaohs. In it you will see the tallest obelisk (Hatshepsut's obelisk) in Egypt.

At the end of your tour, you will go to the Luxor airport to fly back to Sharm el-Sheikh and upon your arrival you will find our rep. waiting for you to give you a lift to your hotel just in time to catch last orders for dinner.
