    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.

  • Luxor: Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride

    3. Luxor: Sunrise Hot Air Balloon Ride

    Begin this once-in-a-lifetime experience with an early-morning pickup from your hotel in Luxor at around 4:00 AM. Transfer by boat across the Nile River to West Bank, where you will be greeted by members of the staff with coffee, tea, and snacks. On the boat, the pilot of your balloon will brief you on safety measures and answer any questions you may have. Once the pilot goes over the pre-flight checklist, he'll also brief the ground crew. After getting the balloon set up — while always paying close attention to safety details — he will begin the hot inflation process.  Watch as the balloon begins to stand up and then begin to board with the assistance of the ground crew. The take-off is so gentle that most guests don't even realize they've left the ground. As you become one with the wind, you'll lose the sensation of motion and your perception of heights, finally feeling the tranquilit...

    My friend and I greatly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Sameh, was very knowledgeable. Sameh would take us through the sight explaining different parts of the structure then give us time to explore and look ourselves. There was always more time for things we took an extra interest so we didn't feel rushed. Sameh is a native to Southern Egypt and his knowledge of what felt like everything around us was impressive. We our 2 females traveling solo in Egypt and felt safe and comfortable with this company, no hustle or pressure. If you are looking to tour this area, I would recommend this one. It's private, it will be your party members, guide, and driver. There was much more freedom at the sights as we were not part of a large tour bus being herded like sheep. Sameh also chooses excellent places for lunch, fresh, Egyptian style and authentic. We can't thank him for the experience.

Trip was wonderful, bus came for us on time, in Luksor our Gudie Nana was waiting for us- she is super funny and will give you very useful tips. Lunch was really tasty and I think everyone will find something. Although trip was very tiring, it was all worth it. I recommend it to everyone.
