Enjoy an unforgettable day trip from Hurghada to Luxor to see the ancient ruins of Thebes and the spectacular Valley of the Kings. Discover a treasure trove of history with visits to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut and the Karnak Temple.
What to Expect
On this full-day excursion, you’ll be picked up early in the morning for the ride by luxury air-conditioned bus to the ancient city of Thebes. Drive along the beautiful Nile River Valley and admire the mountain and desert scenery along the way.
At the end of the 4-hour drive, you’ll be met by an Egyptologist guide, who will show you around the ruins.
Discover a land of mystery and ancient wonders as you cross the Nile to the West Bank to visit the famed Valley of the Kings. Tour the incredible complex of 63 tombs of the pharaohs dating back nearly 4,000 years.
See the royal tombs, decorated with scenes from Egyptian mythology, providing clues to the beliefs and funerary rituals of the period. Almost all of the tombs were opened and robbed in antiquity, but they still give an idea of the opulence and power of the rulers of the time.
Next, visit the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, one of the most successful female rulers of all time. Continue to the Colossi of Memnon, and admire the massive stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III.
Drive back to the East Bank, where you'll enjoy lunch at a local restaurant and a chance to freshen up. The last visit of the tour is the Karnak Temple before you begin the drive back to Hurghada.
