4. From Dahab: Luxor by Plane Guided Day Tour with Lunch
Venture to Luxor, the most popular tourist destination in Southern Egypt and the Nile Valley. Marvel at magnificent temples, ancient royal tombs, and breathtaking desert and river landscapes. Explore Luxor, the capital of Egypt 3,400 years ago, whose name means the "city of palaces". Immerse yourself in the daily life of the Egyptians and enjoy the views of a city almost like a museum.
Travel in comfort as an air-conditioned vehicle picks you up from your hotel and drives you to the airport, where you will board your flight to Luxor. Be welcomed by your Egyptologist tour guide who will be waiting for you upon your arrival and will stay with you the entire day in Luxor.
Begin your journey on the West Bank of the Nile River, where you can see the two giant statues of Amenhotep III, also known as the Colossi of Memnon. Continue to the Valley of the Kings, where the majestic tombs were found.
Head to the spectacular Hatshepsut temple at El Deir El-Bahary, which was built in honor of the only female pharaoh and queen, Queen Hatshepsut. Continue to explore the temple as it emerges from the desert in a succession of terraces and melds with the nearby, towering limestone cliffs.
Rest at the East Bank for lunch before visiting the spectacular Karnak temple, the biggest temple ever built. Consider the history of the temple, whose prehistoric name means "The Most Sacred of Places."
At the end of the day, unwind on a flight back to Sharm El Sheikh where your driver will take you back to the hotel in Dahab.
