Very easy to miss, Howard Carter's house near to the entrance to the Valley of the Kings and not on most guided tours. The house looks totally genuine and like he just walked out yesterday. You can read his original handwritten letters (appalling handwriting) or...More

This is an absolute highly recommendable visit for all tourists. Howard Carter is responsible for many of the discoveries in the area. Enjoy his house in all its originality and surrounding gardens.

I've passed the old carter House many times over the years and decided to pop in last month when we went to the Valley. The museum was created with support from other agencies. Whilst its a simple affair, it puts the visitor into the shoes...More

It’s a house frozen in time, with the added attraction of a replica of King Tutankhamun’s tomb in the back garden. While you’re in the Valley of the king’s worth seeing but not the most spectacular thing you will see in the Valley.

50le to visit including the replica of Tutankhamens tomb. It's a small house but you can wander around it at your own pace. Lots of information to read. The dark room was interesting. Amazing to think of what went on here.

2 days is not very long to spend in Luxor,but even so you should be able to see the VOK and Karnak and Luxor temple. There are buses to Luxor from Hurghada ,but quite a long journey,but I believe flights are available too.

It really depends on how you get to Luxor and who helps you when you are there. If you are on your own, you can simply take a taxi there. Ask them to stop at the ticket kiosk to get your tickets ahead of time. If you are... More
