Do you have a limited time in Luxor yet want to see the prime places ?, then this tour is what you are looking for.


Luxor, situated 440 miles south of Cairo on the east bank of the Nile, was the capital of Egypt during the New kingdom, holding the seat of power for more than thirteen centuries. In antiquity, Luxor was called Thebes. Renowned Greek historian, Homer, called Thebes"the one hundred-gated city" because of its buildings and large gates. The city grew over the years, and the Arab Muslims, impressed by its beautiful palaces and huge edifices, re-named it Luxor, meaning"the city of palaces".
Today, visitors are still awed by this city, the world's greatest open-air museum filled with awe-inspiring monuments of ancient civilizations. In the east stands the City of the Living, where the life-giving sun rises; and in the west lays the City of the Dead, where the sun, in its never-ending orbit, bids farewell to life. Surrounded by modern shops and luxury hotels, the temples, tombs and palaces still stand in sandstone and granite, as a symbol of the eternity.

Itinerary

Early in the morning we start driving to the West Bank of Luxor, where we will visit the Kings Valley and you are able to visit 3 tombs per ticket (if you wish to visit the tomb of Tut AnkhAmun, you will need an extra ticket costing 250 LE per person).
Then we'll see the mortuary (funerary) Temple of Queen Hat Shep Sut (The lady Pharaoh) .
We will end our tour on the West Bank with a visit to the famous Colossi of Memnon , then we head back to the East bank of Luxor enjoying a lunch break on the way (at extra).
Later after the rest time we will proceed to both Karnak and Luxor Temples.
After the tours you will be escorted back to your pick up point.

A Recent Review of this tour

Melad is very friendly, knowledgable, and accommodating. He quickly learned our interests (food and photography) and suggested options to optimize our experience, such as taking a boat ride on the Nile to a local Egyptian restaurant, and reminding us to purchase special tickets so that we can take pictures (some sites won't allow you to take pictures unless you buy such tickets). Overall, it's a great full-day tour for our family, enjoying the highlights of Luxor at a comfortable pace.
