If you’d love to discover ancient Egypt but don’t want to waste money on a night away from your resort, this Luxor day trip is the tour for you. Check off four key Luxor highlights: the Valley of the Kings, the temples of Hatshepsut and Karnak, and the Colossi of Memnon. With door-to-door transport, lunch and a guide, there’s no need to worry about a thing.
Expect pickup early in the morning and transfer by air-conditioned coach to Luxor, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where your guide will meet you. First, cross the Nile to the West Bank and the famous Valley of the Kings, with 63 royal tombs dating back almost 4,000 years: The elaborate art that decorates their walls gives an insight into how Egypt’s rulers lived.
Next, visit the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahari, a tribute to Egypt’s gender-bending female pharaoh, and the giant statues known as the Colossi of Memnon.
Cross back to the East Bank and relax with a traditional local lunch before you explore the vast Temple of Karnak. Finish with a visit to an alabaster factory and a papyrus bazaar before your coach drops you back at your hotel.
