This full day tour brings you from Cairo to Luxor via airplane, where you will have the chance to see some of the many wonders of the ancient world in this stunning area of the Nile River Valley.
What to Expect
Luxor is one of the most spectacular places you can visit during your stay in Egypt, and this full day tour allows you to experience its magic in comfort and style. After a short flight from Cairo Airport you will land in Luxor, where you will be greeted by your personal guide. Here we will venture off to see the Karnak Temple, one of the greatest examples of temple devotion in history. This temple, built by Pharaoh Ramses II (1391–1351 BCE), was dedicated to the God Amon, his wife Mut, and their son Khonsu. This vast open air museum and complex will excite you with its spectacular temples and surroundings. This is the second most visited place in Egypt next to the Temple complex at Giza, and you’ll soon discover why.
After a visit to the temples, you will have the chance to enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, before venturing further down to the West Bank of the Nile. Here, we have the chance to experience the colossal statues of Amenhotep III (Colossi of Memnon). Allow yourself to be inspired by these monuments of human creativity from almost 4000 years ago. The incredibly preserved Double Crown (6ft; 1.8m high) was discovered in 1989 and is an overwhelming look at the artistry of this ancient culture.
The day continues as we visit the Valley of the Kings. Here, the day is brought full circle as we see some of the most magnificent of ancient Egyptian tombs. You will have the chance to visit three different tombs here, each with ample stories and history, giving you a deeper sense of what life might have been like nearly 4000 years ago.
Finally, we move to the Temple of Queen Hatshpsut, the only Pharaonic woman who reigned in Ancient Egypt. In the evening, you will once again be taken to the Luxor Airport for your short flight back to Cairo.
