Full description

Meet your Egyptologist tour guide at your accommodation and start your journey in an 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.

The excursion was great. The guide Mostafa was very kind and told me a lot of history about the ancient Egyptians. Totally customer-oriented service and satisfaction. The tour was spectacular and the guide, the driver of the vehicle and, of course, everything I saw was spectacular. Greetings to Mostafa.

The excursion was excellent. The guide, Ionna, provided many interesting facts about what happened in Luxor in the Valley of the Kings and in each place we visited. He cared about us, accompanying us to other purchases and interacting with locals. His Spanish is perfect. Totally recommended tour.

Ali is an excellent guide. He speaks Spanish very well.. The driver drives very well and the car was super clean with air conditioning 👌 Ali gave us a lot of historical information about Luxor, the temples, which are wonderfully beautiful Ali helped us throw several photos in addition to the tour there was also time to take photos calmly. He was always very friendly and pleasant. They picked us up at the hotel on time and it was one day. Spectacular 👏👏 I recommend Ali, 100% excellent 👌
