Full description

Meet your Egyptologist tour guide and start your journey in a private 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.

We paid for a west plus east side tour but in the end it only included 2 things on the west side and karnak temple on the east side, so I wonder if we had paid only for the east if it would have only included the Karnak temple. Anyway, the guide was nice and knew a lot about history. He explained everything into a lot of detail. He also allowed us to stop for pictures. The lunch was ok.. maybe you should ask to have lunch by yourself somewhere else

This was an excellent tour that we would highly recommend to anyone wanting to see and hear about the tombs and temples around Luxor. Ayman is an extremely knowledgeable Egyptologist and we learnt much we didn’t know and he answered many questions we had. He is a very nice person, very helpful and we enjoyed his company throughout. The day we done this tour was very hot and my wife was struggling with the heat and was slow. Ayman was very caring, patient and understanding. We saw many amazing tombs and temples and we were delighted with the this tour. Don’t hesitate to book this tour, you definitely will not be disappointed.

It was an amazing experience. We got all the information we needed before the tour, Rania was amazing arranging the transfer and being flexible with our requests. Our driver and our tour guide Adel was amazing, we really enjoyed our full day tour with them. Luxor is definitely a spot to visit in Egypt and this is the company to go for! Thank you Rania and Adel for a great experience.
