Full description

Travel back to the days of Ancient Egypt on a full-day tour of Luxor, with round-trip transfers by air-conditioned vehicle from Hurghada. En route, admire views of the River Nile and the villages of Upper Egypt.

Upon arrival in Luxor, go to the Colossi of Memnon to admire the gigantic statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, built 3,400 years ago. Continue to the Valley of the Kings to see where the ancient Egyptians buried their most powerful nobles.

Descend into the tombs of Egyptian rulers, and admire well-preserved paintings and hieroglyphs.

Next, learn the legend of the 1st female pharaoh of Egypt at the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Discover the extraordinary mortuary temple she had built, complete with terraces of colonnades, a hypo-style hall, and hundreds of statues, paintings, and reliefs.

After lunch at a local restaurant, continue your tour at the Temple of Karnak. Beautifully preserved, it provides the perfect opportunity for an imaginative journey back in time to the days of the Ancient Egyptians.

Stroll at leisure to form an impression of how the immense pylon was built. Walk the avenue of ram-head criosphinges, marvel at more than 100 pillars at the hypo-style hall, and see ancient hieroglyphs, chapels, statues, and a holy lake.

The superstitious can approach the scarab close to the lake and surround it 3 times clockwise; according to legend, offspring will soon follow.

The guide was on time the ride was very comfortable in a air conditioned vehicle that accommodated my group of six Travelers. Everyone enjoyed the tour but could have had an even better experience with a more experienced guide. EITHER his understanding of hieroglyphics or translation to the English language needs improvement. He did the best he could but struggled telling the stories on the walls.

We were picked up from the hotel on time and took the bus to Luxor. We made a stop about halfway along the route. Arrived in Luxor the program started. Our group is named Samsam. Beginning with the Temple of Karnak, then lunch, then the trip on the Nile (additional costs) we spent the first hours in Luxor. It continued in the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Hatshepsut in Deir el Bahari and the Colossi of Memnon. It was a very hot and exhausting day but super nice and very informative. I can recommend it to everybody! Our guide really deserves top marks.

A nice, albeit very tiring trip. You have to be aware that this is a purely tourist excursion. Individuality is hardly possible, the schedule is very tight. Unfortunately, the provider of the excursion was very unreliable in terms of the exact pick-up time and the actual pick-up time. We were only given an exact time 2.5 hours before pick-up, which is in the middle of the night. If you are then picked up at 5:00 am instead of 4:30 am, you have some doubts. In addition, the condition of the coach was an impertinence. However, the Getyouguide chat tried very hard to find a solution for the unclear pick-up time and was very friendly. It was still unfortunate. All in all an excursion that is absolutely worth seeing, where you can't have enough water and small change (toilets...) with you.. At the end of the excursion we could optionally book a small Nile crossing on "Banana Island", which was a pleasant end to the tour day.
