Full description
Discover all the famous ruins in Luxor on this private 2-day tour from Hurghada and nearby areas. Stay overnight in a 5-star hotel, and upgrade your experience to include a hot air balloon ride and/or a sound and light show, if you wish. After pickup from your hotel, board an air-conditioned vehicle to Luxor. Once there, make your first stop at the Temple of Karnak, a massive complex of ruined temples that's the largest cult site ever built. Explore the ruins, a pilgrimage site for almost 2,000 years, with your guide. Then, visit Luxor Temple before savoring lunch at a selected restaurant in Luxor. Once you've eaten, decide whether to either board a felucca (a typical Egyptian sailboat) and cruise the Nile to the City of the Dead, or simply hop back in your vehicle to get there. Afterward, get some free time to relax at your hotel. In the late evening, you can choose to attend the spectacular sound and light show at the Karnak Temple, wander around Luxor and its market, or choose to continue relaxing at the hotel. Early on the second morning, you have the option to embark on a very special trip into the air with the top-rated hot air balloon company in Luxor. Spend 45 minutes floating above Luxor and admire its beauty under the gentle light of sunrise. After breakfast in the hotel (whether you choose the hot air balloon ride or not), you'll visit the Valley of the Kings, where the golden treasures of King Tutankhamen still reside along with the original grave goods. Next, head to the Colossi of Memnon, and marvel at an impressive example of devotion to the gods and, at the same time, the advanced architecture of ancient Egypt. Enjoy all the time you want to explore this site with your personal guide. You'll also have the opportunity to visit the Mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Although only beautiful ruins remain of this temple today, its splendor once honored the sole female ruler of Egypt. Finally, return to your hotel in Hurghada.

It was an unforgettable experience! The journey and the super attentive guide. It absolutely must be done. The guide was super organized and the driver very kind… take this excursion to make the most of the day. The negative point the restaurant, the food was not great but the experience is worth it ❤️

We were picked up at the hotel at 5:00 am and driven to Luxor. We arrived there around 9:00 a.m. and visited first the Karnak and then the Luxor Temple. We had done both by 12 p.m., because our first guide (somehow esoteric-mystical touched) made quite a bit of time pressure on the first day - and although there would have been a lot more to see. At 2 p.m., after lunch, we were already at the hotel and there was no other program during the day. That was a bit disappointing, because then we could have started much later. Day two was better: It didn't start until 9:30 a.m., our second guide was much more interested and took more time. First we went to the Valley of the Kings and then to the Temple of Hatshepsut. We had a lot of time here. In between, they tried again and again to sell us something (Nile boat trip, alabaster from the factory). That was a bit annoying. Otherwise a nice second day.

We had booked the trip with a balloon ride. Our driver Mohamed was a smart and helpful man who got us through all the checks from Hurghada safely and confidently. On the first day we had tour guide Shaban, who knew a lot about Egyptian history and always gave us enough time to take pictures and rest. We stayed at the Steigenberger (former Sheraton) The next morning we had to get up again at 3 a.m. for a balloon ride over the Valley of the Kings - an unforgettable experience. After breakfast, our tour guide JouJou picked us up and we immediately fell in love with her. Although she is actually already retired, she guided us through the day and the various pharaoh tombs with so much joy and passion. We were just as enthusiastic about the atmosphere and surroundings as they were. We made a very clear booking recommendation, also thanks to Mohamed, Shaban and JouJou - a super successful trip!
