A Private Tour with a Local Guide


Enjoy a day tour in Luxor where you will see the East and West bank monuments like Karnak Temples, Luxor Temple, Valley of the Kings and and the Temple of Queen Hatshipsut daughter of Thutmosis I, who ruled Egypt about 20 years during the 18th Dynasty.

In the second day, get excited by an excursion to Edfu to visit the majestic temple dedicated to Horus and then transfer to see to the Temple of Kom Ombo standing on high grounds overlooking the Nile. Continue to visit Aswan with its high dam, an engineering miracle built in 1960 protecting Egypt from annual floods from the Nile. Because of the location of the Temple on an island, we have to take a boat to get to the site. Since early century, the site of Philae was flooded for six months each year.
