Full description
Discover all the famous ruins in Luxor on this private 2-day tour from Hurghada and nearby areas. Stay overnight in a 5-star hotel, and upgrade your experience to include a hot air balloon ride and/or a sound and light show, if you wish. After pickup from your hotel, board an air-conditioned vehicle to Luxor. Once there, make your first stop at the Temple of Karnak, a massive complex of ruined temples that's the largest cult site ever built. Explore the ruins, a pilgrimage site for almost 2,000 years, with your guide. Then, visit Luxor Temple before savoring lunch at a selected restaurant in Luxor. Once you've eaten, decide whether to either board a felucca (a typical Egyptian sailboat) and cruise the Nile to the City of the Dead, or simply hop back in your vehicle to get there. Afterward, get some free time to relax at your hotel. In the late evening, you can choose to attend the spectacular sound and light show at the Karnak Temple, wander around Luxor and its market, or choose to continue relaxing at the hotel. Early on the second morning, you have the option to embark on a very special trip into the air with the top-rated hot air balloon company in Luxor. Spend 45 minutes floating above Luxor and admire its beauty under the gentle light of sunrise. After breakfast in the hotel (whether you choose the hot air balloon ride or not), you'll visit the Valley of the Kings, where the golden treasures of King Tutankhamen still reside along with the original grave goods. Next, head to the Colossi of Memnon, and marvel at an impressive example of devotion to the gods and, at the same time, the advanced architecture of ancient Egypt. Enjoy all the time you want to explore this site with your personal guide. You'll also have the opportunity to visit the Mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Although only beautiful ruins remain of this temple today, its splendor once honored the sole female ruler of Egypt. Finally, return to your hotel in Hurghada.

C’etait une expérience inoubliable! Le trajet et le guide super attentionné. Il faut absolument le faire. Le guide était hyper organisé et le chauffeur d’une gentillesse… prenez cette excursion pour bien profiter la journée. Le point négatif le restaurant, la nourriture etait pas top mais l’expérience vaux la peine ❤️

Wir wurden morgens um 5.00 Uhr im Hotel abgeholt und nach Luxor gefahren. Dort kamen wir gegen 9.00 Uhr an und besichtigen ersten den Karnak und anschließend den Luxor Tempel. Beides hatten wir bis 12 Uhr erledigt, weil unser erster (irgendwie esoterisch-mystisch angehauchter) Guide am ersten Tag ziemlichen Zeitdruck gemacht hat - und obwohl es deutlich mehr zu sehen gegeben hätte. Um 14 Uhr waren wir dann, nach dem Mittagessen, schon im Hotel und den Tag über gab es kein weiteres Programm. Das war etwas enttäuschend, denn dann hätten wir auch deutlich später losfahren können. Tag zwei war besser: Es ging erst um 9.30 Uhr los, unser zweiter Guide war viel interessierter und nahm sich mehr Zeit. Es ging zunächst ins Tal der Könige und dann in den Tempel der Hatschepsut. Hier hatten wir viel Zeit. Zwischendurch wurde immer wieder versucht uns etwas zu verkaufen (Nil-Bootsfahrt, Alabaster aus Fabrik). Das war etwas nervig. Ansonsten aber ein schöner zweiter Tag.

It was a fantastic experience!! The driver picked us up from the hotel and for the entire journey he was really kind and did everything to make us comfortable. When arrived in Luxor, we met the Italian guide and she staid with us for two days. She was super friendly, passionate about the history and happy to reply to all our questions. The first day we visited Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple, we saw the sunset from a Feluca and we finished with a tour of the city. The second day we visited the Valley of the Kings. Highly recommended!!
