Overview
Our Egyptologist will take you on a guided tour of some of the most spectacular sites in Luxor and the Valley of the Kings on this full-day excursion from El Gouna. The wonders of ancient Egypt are best explored with a knowledgeable guide!
What to Expect
Experience an unforgettable day on this trip from El Gouna, Hurghada to Luxor. Luxor is home to the spectacular Valley of the Kings and is a treasure trove of ancient Egyptian history.

We'll pick you up at your El Gouna hotel before dawn and drive you by luxury air-conditioned mini-bus to the ancient city of Thebes (known today as Luxor), following the course of the beautiful Nile River. You’ll enjoy views of mountains and desert around you as we travel to Luxor on our full-day tour.

Once we arrive in Luxor we'll cross the Nile to the west bank where we’ll visit the famed Valley of the Kings. This impressive complex of 63 Pharaoh tombs dates back nearly 4,000 years.

The royal tombs are decorated with scenes from Egyptian mythology and give clues to the beliefs of the period and to funerary rituals. Almost all of the tombs seem to have been opened and robbed in antiquity, but it is still possible to appreciate the opulence and power of the rulers of the period.

We’ll move on to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, one of the most successful women rulers of all time. After our visit to this temple, we'll see the Colossi of Memnon and the 2 massive stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III.

After driving back to the east bank of the Nile we’ll stop for lunch at a local restaurant and have a break to freshen up. When we’ve finished lunch we’ll visit the Karnak Temple Complex.

Our final stops of the day will be at an alabaster factory and a papyrus bazaar, before heading back to El Gouna.
