Luxor Private Full-Day Tour: Discover the East and West Banks of the Nile

242 reviews
Forget haggling with taxi drivers or piling on and off crowded buses. The best way to experience Luxor is on a private tour, where you can take the sights at your own pace and ask your own personal Egyptologist any questions you like. This one covers the main attractions of both East and West banks, perfect for first-time visitors or anyone with limited time. Round-trip hotel transfers, lunch, and entrance fees are also included.

If you are only in Luxor for a day, you need to take the whole day tour of Valley of Kings, Karnak, Luxor temples and Temple of Queen Hatshupsut. If you have extra time, then consider Valley of Queens, Valley of Artisans and the Temple of Madinet Habu. Valley of Artisan is a very informative tour of the living quarters of the the workers who worked on these temples.

Much less crazy than the valley of the kings and jut as much to see. This is where the people who built tans decorated the famous tombs lived. It’s an amazing perspective and well worth the visit.

Wine, animals, food, men, women, kids, etc- the designs and decorations the tomb builders chose for themselves were fare more relatable that the complex gods goddesses and processes depicted in the tombs they were responsible for building. We loved this area! A must see that very much feels off the beaten train- the kids loved climbing in and out of the tombs (as did I...) and the adventure is rewarded with brilliantly colored rooms. Further, there is lots of area to wander aroud and try to imagine this area as a bustling "city" of workers. Included in the Luxor Pass- so no waiting. Make time- a must see!

Is a completely different presentation of ancient Egyptian life both in the workers dwellings and the beautifully illustrated tombs.

For a quieter experience to see ancient Egyptian tombs, you would do well to consider the Diet el Medina site in the west bank. The walls are beautifully decorated with scenes of daily life and the paint colors are still vivid. Well worth your time.
