Overview

Rewind to the days of ancient Egypt on a private full-day trip to Luxor from Hurghada. Travel from the Red Sea to Luxor, the site of ancient Egypt’s capital of Thebes, by air-conditioned minivan, and lose yourself in temples and treasures dating back some 4,000 years. Marvel at Karnak, explore three pharaonic tombs at the Valley of the Kings, and see the Colossi of Memnon and Temple of Hatshepsut, all alongside an informative private Egyptologist guide. Lunch at a Luxor restaurant and hotel pickup and drop-off in Hurghada are included.
  • Private full-day trip from Hurghada to Luxor with private, air-conditioned minivan transport
  • Explore Luxor’s timeworn antiquities with a local Egyptologist guide
  • Visit spectacular Karnak to see its Hypostyle Hall, sanctuaries and courts
  • Savor lunch at a local restaurant and see the two giant statues of the Colossi of Memnon
  • Descend into three richly painted royal tombs at the Valley of the Kings
  • Admire the beautiful Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, one of ancient Egypt’s female rulers
  • Enjoy in-depth attention and personalized commentary from a private driver and Egyptologist guide
After early morning pickup from your central Hurghada hotel, settle into a private, air-conditioned minivan with a professional driver at the wheel.
Absorb the views as you trace the Nile Valley to Luxor, the buzzing Egyptian town that stands on the site of Thebes, the capital of ancient Egypt and seat of its pharaoh rulers.
Stop for a break during your approximate 4-hour journey, and, on arrival in Luxor, meet up with your local guide, a qualified Egyptologist who will accompany you on your sightseeing.
Make your first stop at magnificent Karnak, a vast ensemble of temples, chambers and pylons dating back as far as 2000 BC. Gaze in awe at this vast complex as your guide show you the highlights. Marvel at the gigantic columns of the Hypostyle Hall, and stroll through atmospheric sanctuaries, chambers and courts richly decorated with hieroglyphics, reliefs and statues.
After a tasty Egyptian lunch at a local restaurant, continue to the West Bank across the River Nile to see more incredible antiquities. Admire the towering Colossi of Memnon, and visit the Valley of the Kings, where the craggy mountains are burrowed with 63 royal tombs, mainly those of pharaohs of the New Kingdom period.
Visit three tombs, descending into corridors and chambers covered in hieroglyphics and paintings. Inspect the scenes that depict the lives and soon-to-be afterlife of the deceased, and learn the stories of each pharaoh.
Next, drive on to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, one of ancient Egypt’s rare female rulers. Admire the symmetrical terraces and statues of this extraordinary temple and hear how it was built for the worship of Hatshepsut after her death.
After bidding goodbye to your Egyptologist guide, relax on your return journey to Hurghada where your tour ends with a hotel drop-off in the evening.

Excellent Tour! Though the drive from Hurghada to Luxor is long, the private car was quite comfortable and our driver was amazing as well. The tour guide was very knowledgeable which my husband loved and he gave us lots of time to take pictures which I loved. Adam from the tour company was very caring as well, he checked with us and the driver to ensure a safe journey there and back.

From start to finish- PERFECT!!

These three are definitely the dynamic trio!! My husband and I had an awesome, awesome time on our Luxor tour from Hurghada.. Adam was efficient from start to finish with organizing everything and confirming all times from hotel pick up to even calling during our 3.5 hour trip to check on us via driver. It was fantastic! Never been on such a personalized tour.. They met all of our needs and were more than flexible in what we wanted to do. Never felt rushed on pressured during any time..

My only complaint for the day was- IT WAS HOT!: So bring a hat, scarf, or small umbrella.. But that's Egypt's weather, the dynamic trio had no control over that but they can tell you where to get all three if needed!!!:

Mahmoud has over 20 years of tour guide experience and really is a walking encyclopedia for Egyptian History! I learned so much in as little as a couple of hours. He also personalizes and meets your needs if you just want to look and have him explain things as you go- No problem! But I prefer his way, he sits down and gives some history and then when you walk in the areas- It's like you just took a 2 year Egyptian History class in less than 20mins! We call it Cliff Notes in the U.S: I promise you, it was awesome! My husband is very to the point and I prefer a lot of detail especially when it comes to history- Mahmoud met both of our needs and fit both of our styles..

Hany the driver was very friendly and professional! Always smiling and the car not only spotless and comfortable, but Hany was always waiting for us the moment we stepped out of a particular area. No wait!! He was are very own private chauffeur for the day and it was worth every penny!! I promise you, your tour with them will be priceless. Memories that have no price tag.. I am even keeping their information for when we return bc Egypt is definitely a place you will want to come back to and Adam literally replies to you via email in less than 10mins!

Perfect trip to Luxor from Hurghada.. You will not be disappointed.. Enjoy your trip, tours, and safe travels: TravelB215
