This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Valley of the Kings, Luxor City, Luxor 85511 Egypt

Our Driver will pick you up from Hurghada. After that you will be transferred by a modern air-conditioned vehicle to Luxor, approximately 4 hours far from Hurghada. Then precedes to the Tour the most famous sites on Luxor's West and East Banks in the company of an expert private guide. You'll step back into Egypt's ancient history at the Valley of the Kings, Colossi of Memnon and Hatshepsut Temple

Karnak and Luxor Temples,

Crossing the Nile River to the West Bank, you'll visit the necropolis of the ancient city of Thebes. Arriving at the Valley of the Kings, burial place of the kings of Thebes (ancient Luxor), you will have a brief stop at the visitors center. Guides are not permitted inside the tombs, but your guide will tell you what to look for inside the elaborately decorated rooms. If you wish to visit the tomb of King Tutankhamun, an additional cost is payable direct.

Leaving the hot sands of the Valley of the Kings, you will visit the Temple of Hatshepsut, one of the most striking monuments in Egypt. Your guide will introduce you to the history of the temple and the story of Queen Hatshepsut, the famous female ruler of Egypt who posed as a male to gain the throne. There is free time to explore at your leisure as you wander the large courtyards and admire the intricate hieroglyphic decorations.

Returning to Luxor there will be time for a brief photo stop at the Colossi of Memnon, which mark the site of the funerary temple of Amenhotep III. These two giant statues standing tall and proud on the West Bank are all that remain of the ancient complex.

Stop for Lunch Start to visit to the Temples of Karnak. Walk along the Avenue of Sphinx to enter the complex as your guide explains how the massive facade was constructed. On entering the Temples of Karnak you will see each legacy left by the various pharaohs as the complex grew even larger. The deeper you go into the complex, the further back in time you will travel, with the oldest ruins dating back over 3,000 years.

Walking through the Great Court into the Great Hypostyle Hall, it's hard not to be overwhelmed by the 134 columns towering above you like an ancient forest. At the rear of the complex you will find the sacred lake where centuries ago pharaohs and their offerings to the gods were purified. After a tour of the complex, you will have additional free time to explore at leisure.

Continue to Luxor Temple which was once joined to the Temples of Karnak by a two-kilometer long Avenue of Sphinx, a portion of which marks the entrance to the temple. Dominated by statues of the great warrior pharaoh Ramses II, Luxor Temple has survived Nile floods, foreign invasion and thousands of years exposed to the elements.

A pure Egyptian temple, the inner walls and columns are decorated with intricate hieroglyphics which your guide will help you decipher. Find out how Alexander the Great wrote himself into Luxor Temple's history, and see one of the original pair of obelisk, the second of which now stands on the Place de la Concorde in Paris. At 05:PM O'clock in the evening, you will be escorted back to Hurghada.

Great experience!
My boyfriend and I did a 4 day Nile cruise. Khaled was our personal tour guide all 4 days. He went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. He speaks English very well. We felt completely safe the entire time. He even organized a tour guide for the two days we spent in Cairo to end our trip. I highly recommend Khaled.

Khaled picked us up for Luxor airport and drove us to our hotel to freshen up. We then toured Luxor for a day and a half. He then drove us to Aswan and toured us there for another day. Khaled was prompt all the time, from pick ups to drop offs. I work at a museum so getting the correct knowledge was very important to me as this was my first visit to Egypt. Khaled’s knowledge is amazing and I learnt so much through his fascinating stories of the historical landmarks we visited. I plan another trip soon and will not hesitate in booking khalid for my next trip. Khaled’s English was also great. If you want to soak in Luxor and Aswan make sure you go with khaled on this amazing journey and get lost in time. Khaled is gentle, caring and definitely knows some amazing restaurant that cook traditional meals. Thanks for everything khaled, I will be back

Super Anbieter
Leider hatten wir nur einen Transfer zur Senzoo Mall mit diesem Anbieter gebucht. Wir buchten online an morgen für den Nachmittag. Alles lief über WhatsApp super ab. Der super nette Fahrer war pünktlich da. Beim Aussteigen zahlten wir bar in pfund und uns wurde ein sehr ungünstiger Kurs berechnet. Die Überraschung kam auf der Rückfahrt. Der Fahrer sagte er habe einen Rechenfehler gemacht und gab mit den Differenzbetrag zum echten Kurs zurück. Das war ganz toll und ist für Ägypten nicht normal. Wir empfehlen du sunshine Tours daher klar weiter.
