Full description

Meet your Egyptologist tour guide at your accommodation and start your journey in an air-conditioned vehicle. Relax in comfort as you travel to explore the most important historical monuments in Luxor.

Choose between a tour of both the East and West banks, or visit only one side of the Nile according to your preferences. On the West bank, discover the Valley of Kings where you will visit the remarkable tombs and last resting place of the Kings Ramsses III, Ramsses VI, and Mrenptah.

If you've booked an entrance to the tomb of Tutankhamun (available as an add-on), you'll then see the most iconic Egyptian tomb known world-wide.

Then, proceed to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, dedicated to a female ruler who reigned over Egypt for 20 years, bringing the country wealth and peace. See the mortuary temple of Amenhotep III at the Colossi of Memnon, then stop for lunch at a local restaurant. On the East bank, witness the Complex of Karnak, which might be the largest temple in the world. You have one more stop before you leave the place: the magnificent Luxor Temple, a large ancient Egyptian temple which you will have time to explore.

Bit of a problem with the pickup as I was not contacted by the guide and the hotel had 2 lobbies. The agent didn’t respond which resulted in an hour delay. Guide was good. I had an issue as they change vehicles half way through but don’t tell you, so I had valuables in the other vehicle and the one we got in had other peoples bags.

The tour went well, my companion and I were the only ones and I recommend it for those who want to enjoy a few hours in comfort. The car was perfect, the driver and the guide in Italian were really good. The only problem, which however is not a serious one, is that the visit to the alabaster "factory" could be avoided unless one is really interested, we would have gladly tipped for the break but would have saved ourselves from haggling the completely out-of-the-blue prices on items we were not even interested in.. One is not obliged to buy but wastes a lot of time unnecessarily!
