Full description

Meet your Egyptologist tour guide 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.

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.

I would recommend to have a private tour especially if you got limited time in Luxor. The company was really organized, I got a message two days before the tour about the pick up, detailed entrance fees for each temple we want to visit as I opted it to be separate. Mr Adel was very punctual, he gave us a very good tour with all his knowledge as an Egyptologist. We took the boat from West to East to save time, took a lot pictures, and we finished at 5pm. Lots of walking so be in a comfortable pair of shoes and with the weather - bring a hat with you. Thank to Mr Adel for making our Luxor trip a memorable one :-)

our guide was Said. He is passionate and it shows. he does not hesitate to reveal even the little secrets that you would never have seen on your own. he speaks good French and wants to pass on his knowledge to us. I'm not talking about the site which is just incredible on its own.
