Full description
Get picked up from your hotel at 5:00 AM by a private, air-conditioned taxi and arrive at Luxor at around 9:30 AM. Cross the Nile to visit some of the most spectacular highlights of Luxor's fabled West Bank. Explore the three tombs of the Valley of the Kings and all other sites with a private tour guide. Opt for a visit to the Tomb of the Young Pharaoh Tutankhamon for an extra 200 Egyptian Pounds.  Explore the magic Temple of Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon, and then break for lunch at around 12:00 PM. Savor a tasty meal in a local restaurant in Luxor, before visiting Karnak Temple, the largest ancient religious site known anywhere in the world.  End your day with an optional tour in a traditional Felucca (oar-powered boat used on the Nile) in the afternoon, the perfect way to relax while passing by traditional rural life on the riverbank. If you finish early, there may be some time for shopping in Luxor's vast souks, or if you prefer, some time to wander by yourself around central Luxor. Finally, at 5:30 PM, you will be picked up in your private car and transferred back to your hotel in Marsa Alam, arriving at around 9:00 PM. Should you wish to make changes to the itinerary, such as visiting Luxor Temple instead of Karnak, or spending more time in the souks, your guide will be happy to make suitable arrangements where possible.

It was a very nice trip that I can definitely recommend if you are on holiday in Egypt. I can only recommend you to opt for the private day trip. You can opt for a Dutch-speaking guide. He has done that super well. We have visited everything that was stated on the website + we have also opted to add extra for the Nile cruise. It is very busy everywhere and if you are only 4 people like us, this is perfect. You hear well what the guide says and you have the necessary time to take photos and film. This is not possible if you are with a larger group. The food in the afternoon was also delicious. In other words "it was a super beautiful day ".

Nach dem Tagesausflug nach Cairo haben wir uns auch noch für die Private Bustour nach Luxor entschieden und auch die hat sich vollends gelohnt! Auch in Luxor möchte man allerdings am Liebsten ein paar Tage bleiben, da es so viel zu entdecken gibt, aber zum Schnuppern hat es gelangt. Die Tour war gut organisiert (mit einem sehr freundlichen Chauffeur) und alles hat geklappt (ausser dass der Trip kurzfristig um einen Tag verlegt wurde, was uns 2x sehr frühes Aufstehen bescherte)! Unser Tourguide Hamy hat sich auch viel Mühe gegeben und wir erlebten einen spannenden Tag mit unvergesslichen Eindrücken!

Surely you have the opportunity to do and move at your convenience. Too bad that the driver did not speak Italian, however, despite this, he was extremely kind.
