    Take a day excursion from Hurghada to see some of Egypt's finest historic sites. Enjoy complimentary pickup and drop-off and the services of an Egyptologist guide as you take in the ancient sights.

    After pickup from your hotel, drive to Luxor to visit the most famous monuments in Egypt, including the temple at Karnak. Relax over lunch at a local restaurant, then board a typical Felucca boat to cross the Nile to the City of the Dead (optional). See the impressive Colossi of Memnon, the last remnants of the Temple of Amenophis III. Be enthralled by the architecture of the Valley of the Kings, and visit the temple of Hatshepsut, one of the female rulers of Ancient Egypt.

    I enjoyed this day tour very much. My guide Nana was very nice and very knowledgeable, explained everything in detail, showed me the best picture spots and also took pictures for me. It was definitely worth it to see all the archeological sites in one day, and it’s nice to have the van with air conditioning to go from one place to another, because it gets massively warm during the afternoon. The restaurant we had lunch with was also nice, it was nothing special, but it had air conditioning and the food was nice.
