Full description
Travel back to the days of Ancient Egypt on a full-day tour of Luxor, with round-trip transfers by air-conditioned vehicle from Hurghada. En route, admire views of the River Nile and the villages of Upper-Egypt.

Upon arrival in Luxor, go to the Colossi of Memnon to admire the gigantic statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, built 3,400 years ago. Continue to the Valley of the Kings to see where the ancient Egyptians buried their most powerful nobles. Descend into the tombs of Egyptian rulers, and admire well preserved paintings and hieroglyphs.

Next, learn the legend of the 1st female pharaoh of Egypt at the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Discover the extraordinary mortuary temple she had built, complete with terraces of colonnades, a hypo-style hall, and hundreds of statues, paintings and reliefs.

After lunch at a local restaurant, continue your tour at the Temple of Karnak. Beautifully preserved, it provides the perfect opportunity for an imaginative journey back in time to the days of the Ancient Egyptians. Stroll at leisure to form an impression of how the immense pylon was built. Walk the avenue of ram-head criosphinges, marvel at more than 100 pillars at the hypo-style hall, and see ancient hieroglyphs, chapels, statues and a holy lake.

The superstitious can approach the scarab close to the lake and surround it 3 times clockwise; according to legend, offspring will soon follow!

Pick up time was 5 am. Very good guide Said who knew a lot and was very enthusiastic. He was waiting at the destination. Long ride there and back give you the chance to see the real Egypt. You will need 20-50 € sents for most toilets, 10 €/200EGP for the river crossing and tips for drivers. Long, but great experience! Wonderful trip!

Emotive, Awe Inspiring, Entertaining, Mind Expanding and Exhausting Day which lasts around 17+ hours, tour guide was phenomenal with so much Knowledge and information to impart on us it is hard to take it all on board but really helps your understanding of ancient Egypt. We got picked up 6 minutes early (note you need to ensure the tour company has your name(s) and room number on contact via mobile or email the day before so make sure you are prepared for the call and/or email. The journey in the mini van is long with one stop for toilet and driver change each way. The drivers are experienced and very progressive pushing the envelope to near the limit of safe driving (the faster you get there the more time you get touring ahead of the other coaches/minivans) take a pillow for journey! You will need £E5 for most toilets, £10GBP/£E200pp for the river crossing (pointless not doing so) and tips for drivers and guide. A very professional, enjoyable day and thoroughly recommended to all.

Long, but great experience! Special thanks to our guide - Ashraf. He was very professional and well educated. We learned and saw so much about ancient Egypt. The trip itself was long but in a good bus. Restaurant where we stopped for a lunch was great - good food, right next to river Nile and a good view. We really recomend the trip and special thanks to Ashraf again.
