Meet a driver at your hotel at 4am for transfer to the airport, where you’ll catch a short, domestic flight to Luxor International Airport. A tour guide will greet you upon arrival at the airport, then go over the day’s itinerary on your way to the first stop of the day, the Necropolis of Thebes.
Cross the Nile River into the Valley of Kings, then visit a series of tombs and temples, including the Temple of Deir el-Bahari and the Colossi of Memnon. Learn about ancient Egypt’s legendary female pharaoh at the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, then pause for lunch at a nearby restaurant.
Head back to the east bank of the Nile River to see the Luxor Temple and the Temple of Karnak. After a guided tour of Luxor Temple, hop a bus or carriage to Karnak, where you’ll enter the temple complex by walking a long line of fierce-looking sphinxes.
You’ll see a series of temples dating to different reigns, from the 134 columns of the Hypostyle Hall to the Temple of Amon, the Granite Scarabeus of Amenophis III, and the Sacred Lake. Following your time at the Temple of Karnak, travel to the Luxor International Airport to board a flight back to Cairo, where a driver will meet you for the return trip to your hotel.

This was an excellent tour- well worth the money. It's a long day, but having a guide like Shimaa made it go so fast! We were very lucky to have Shimaa as our guide- she made us feel welcome, encouraged our silly pictures, and made accommodations for us throughout the day. The Valley of the Kings was breathtaking, and Shimaa was very knowledgeable and answered our all of our questions. We had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend this tour!!!

Loved the trip and the guide was wonderful. We were met at the airport in Luxor by our guide. We saw everything in Luxor and had a wonderful lunch. I would recommend this to anyone who only had a day to see Luxor from Cairo.

Amazing tour. Can not recommend it enough. The tour company was excellent. Our Guide, Shaima, was the best tour guide we've had anywhere. She was extremely informative. Her passion for Egyptian culture and history was contagious. The sites were unbelievable. The Temples of Karnak, the Luxor temple, the valley of the Kings, and specially, the Temple of Hatshepsut. Luxor is also a beautiful oasis in the middle of the desert. This tour turned out to be the highlight of our trip to Egypt.

Shimaa did an excellent job. She spoke English well and was very kind. She even took photos of me as a solo traveler.

We were picked up from our hotel in Cairo in a car and taken to the airport to take our flight to Luxor. Our guide, Shimia, greeted us in Luxor after landing and began our journey. We visited The Temple Karnak, Luxor Temple and Hatshepsut Temple which were all different and amazing to see with well preserved details and painting to be over 2000- 4000 years old. We also went to the Valley of the Kings and saw 3 tombs including King Tut's with his mummy inside! It was simply spectacular! Shimia was very attentive and extremely informative and she taught me so much about the hieroglyphics drawings and graphics and the way history changed from kings as gods to priests as intercessors for the gods. She was simply the best and took us to some shops we had special interests in along with a great lunch. There was just two of us so we had our own private day tour with her. Perfect!!! Highly recommended.!

This is a very inclusive day tour of Luxor, and if you are staying in Cairo a good way to see the great sites at Luxor. My tour guide, Bishoy, did a great job and made the experience even better.

I would say there is no better way to see both the East and West banks of the Nile at Luxor, and although there is much more to see if you only have one day this tour hits all of the major sites.

The tombs and temples are breathtaking, and having someone as knowledgeable and friendly as Bishoy by my side made for a complete visit.

HIGHLY recommend!

My wife and I recently went to Egypt. The second tour was in Luxor. We were met at the airport by our guide for the day, Shima.

In Luxor, we visited The Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut Temple, Karnak and a local artisan shop. The tour was fantastic. Our guide, Shima, was a pleasure to be with and she certainly knew her history. She made the past come alive for us.

The tour was lengthy due to flights to and from Cairo. But Emo Tours really delivered . We highly recommend this tour and this guide. Thank you Shima and Emo!
