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.

The hotel did not feel like five stars, old worn.

Very worthwhile trip with a good guide and driver. Everything was explained in detail and all questions were answered. Very nice hotel right on the Nile. Since there is so much to see, you should definitely book a two-day tour.
