Full description

Our delegate will pick up you from your hotel in Hurghada at about 11:00 pm. After pick-up from your hotel, drive to Luxor and start your journey in a private air-conditioned vehicle. Relax in comfort as you travel to explore the most important historical monuments in Luxor.

Upon arrival in Luxor in the early morning, a representative will greet you and take you to enjoy a hot air balloon ride for 45- 60 minutes to watch the sun come up over the archaeological sites of Luxor.

Next, head to the west bank of Luxor to visit the Valley of the Kings. Here you will explore the 3 most important tombs and see the walls full of hieroglyphs.

Your guide will then take you to the most important temple of the complex, the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut. The temple consists of three floors with open balconies built of limestone, with statues of the god Osiris and Queen Hatshepsut.

Then, you will visit the Valley of the Workers (Deir el-Medina). This is the place where the workmen of the royal tombs used to live. Here you will see the Temple of Deir el-Medina, which was dedicated to the goddess Hathor.

This is the only temple in all of Egypt where you can admire the carvings of the Final Judgement. At every site, you will get information from your Egyptologist tour guide and you will get free time to explore the ancient monuments by yourself.

Next, See the mortuary temple of Amenhotep III at the Colossi of Memnon, then stop for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, enjoy a felucca ride. Enjoy a refreshing cup of traditional Egyptian tea (for free).

You’ll then head to the east bank to visit the biggest temple in Luxor, It's the Karnak Temple. dedicated to the god Amun, his wife Mut, and their son Khonsu.

Ahmed Bahaa was a great guide! He had so much knowledge about the history, was polite og patient. Nice with a private tour. The balloon trip is a memory for life, althoug the price is high. The driver played music in the night When We wanted to sleep though, and was looking on his phone while driving, so let the driver know If This makes You feel uncomfortable.

Fantastic balloon flight. Magical to fly over Luxor at Sunrise being surrounded by other balloons and the Nile valley below. Tour guide, Paula, was very knowledgeable and friendly and showed us everything we wanted enthusiastically. Our driver, Bomba, was creepy and not to be trusted. Insisted on us writing a good review of him before we had even got there and gave us false information about paying for entry to sites, saying bank cards were not accepted and made us withdraw cash. This was untrue. He got annoyed at points and swore a lot. At one point threatened to leave us stranded. We said we would write a review after we got safely back which he did not like. We are well travelled and confident but Bomba made us feel very nervous, which was a shame as the rest was great.
