Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your tour begins with pickup from Safaga Port. Traveling in the comfort of a private vehicle, set out on the around 3-hour journey to Luxor, accompanied by a private Egyptologist guide.

On arrival, start your tour on the West Bank, exploring the UNESCO-listed Valley of the Kings (Necropolis of Thebes), where the mountains are home to over 63 royal tombs, dating from the 2nd century BC. Venture inside to see some of the tombs and perhaps opt to visit the most famous of all — the tomb of Tutankhamen (extra cost).

Continue exploring the surrounding archeological wonders, including the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut (Deir el Bahari), the Colossi of Memnon, and the Temple of Medinat Habu (Temple of Ramses III), before breaking for lunch.

After a typical Egyptian-style lunch (included) served at an island restaurant in the middle of the Nile River, cross over to the modern city on the East bank of the river. First, take a tour of the Karnak Temples, a vast complex built between 2055 BC and 100 BC, where highlights include the Avenue of the Sphinxes, the Great Hypostyle Hall, and the Sacred Lake. Then, set sail aboard a traditional felucca boat, for a 30-minute cruise along the Nile — the perfect way to end your day.

On return to Safaga, your tour ends with drop-off at the port in time for your cruise ship departure.

We arrived at Safaga and opted for a private tour because we were the only people with a toddler on our cruise ship. Our driver Hassani was incredibly accommodating and ensured that we were comfortable during the long drive to Luxor and back. He had prior experience as a tour guide and told us about the areas we drove through. When we entered Luxor we picked up our guide Omar Khalifa. He was fantastic with our daughter. He was knowledgeable and and patiently went at our speed. He was able to clarify any questions we had and he tailored an experience just for us.

Lugares lindos, mas excursão mal organizada e não entregou o que prometeu
Fbcaiuby
, Dec 2019
Contratamos uma excursão privada em espanhol e pagamos bastante caro por isso. Alguns dias antes veio uma mensagem da operadora dizendo que teríamos a companhia de mais quatro pessoas, mas isso não prejudicaria porque a van comportava até 16 pessoas. Deixamos passar e no dia e horário combinado descemos do navio às 6 da matina para procurar o guia, que deveria ter uma plaquinha com nosso nome. Não tinha. Havia centenas de pessoas com excursões contratadas na mesma Egypt Tours Portal e um "coordenador" para conferir nome por nome em uma lista de quatro páginas que sequer estava em ordem alfabética. Para resumir, saímos os seis viajantes em uma van às 8h, com duas horas de atraso. O motorista mal falava inglês, que dirá espanhol, e viajamos mudos 3 horas e meia até Luxor, onde encontramos o guia. Um monte de informações que deveria ter sido fornecido durante o trajeto não aconteceu. Já em Karnak, com mais 30 minutos de atraso apareceu mais um casal e a excursão de duas pessoas que viraram seis passou a ter oito. A preço de excursão privada. No final do dia, voltando para o porto depois de passarmos por treze (!) comandos que examinaram rapidamente o carro, ficamos retidos na saída de Luxor porque eram 18h30 e o horário limite para deixar a cidade era 18h. Será que o guia e o motorista não tinham obrigação de saber disso?! Acabamos chegando de volta ao porto cerca de 10h20 da noite, no que foi o pior dia de nossa viagem. Egypt Tours, nunca mais!
