Louxor abrite certaines des ruines antiques les plus remarquables d'Égypte, mais les excursions en groupe ne peuvent vous laisser qu'un temps limité pour explorer. Cette excursion privée d'une journée complète vous garantit une expérience personnalisée et explore les rives est et ouest du Nil, notamment la Vallée des Rois classée au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO, les colosses de Memnon, le Temple de la reine Hatchepsout, les Temples de Karnak et le Temple de Louxor. Le transfert depuis l'hôtel et le déjeuner sont inclus.
Votre excursion commence par le transfert depuis votre hôtel dans le centre de Louxor à temps pour un départ à 8:00. En voyageant dans le confort d'un véhicule privé, partez à la découverte des ruines antiques de la ville en compagnie de votre guide privé.
Commencez votre excursion sur la rive ouest pour explorer la Vallée des Rois (nécropole de Thèbes) classée au patrimoine mondial de l'UNESCO, où les montagnes abritent plus de 63 tombeaux royaux, datant du IIe siècle av. J.-C. Aventurez-vous dans certains tombeaux, notamment ceux des rois Thoutmosis I, Thoutmosis III, Toutankhamon, Ramsès VI, Mrenptah et Amenhotep II.
Continuez à explorer les merveilles archéologiques aux environs, notamment le Temple de la reine Hatchepsout (Deir El Bahari), les colosses de Memnon et le Temple de Medinat Habu (Temple de Ramsès III), avant de faire une pause pour le déjeuner (inclus) dans un restaurant local.
Après le déjeuner, traversez la ville moderne vers la rive est du fleuve et profitez d'une visite des temples de Karnak. Suivez votre guide dans le vaste complexe du temple qui a été construit entre 2055 et 100 avant J.-C. et comprend des points forts comme l'avenue des Sphinx, la Grande salle hypostyle et le lac sacré d'Égypte. Enfin, visitez le Temple de Louxor, construit par Amenhotep III de la 18e dynastie du Nouvel Empire, et qui fut achevé par Ramsès II pendant la 19e dynastie.
Votre excursion se termine par un dépôt à votre hôtel.

The guide Ashraf was just amazing the best one we had in Egypt so knowledgeable and very kind and friendly
This tour was fantastic! Our guide, Amr, was extremely knowledgeable and did an excellent job. Both he and our driver, Hagag, went out of their way to help us. This was a wonderful, wonderful tour, I highly recommend it. Oh, and lunch was absolutely delicious!
Absolutely fantastic. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly, and he gave us time to explore sites on our own after telling us about them, which we really enjoyed. We also greatly appreciated that we were not forced to stop once at any stores and listen to a sales pitch for local goods--as the guide said, the people who want to do that will ask for it, and we were certainly more interested in seeing the sights than buying souvenirs.
The tour started and ended promptly, and the driver was professional and capable as well.
As for the content of the tour, we hit the main sites on both the West and East Banks of Luxor, plus the Habu Temple, which is apparently not visited as often by tours. It's a good choice nonetheless.
Either way, I would not hesitate to recommend this tour to other visitors.
If you are only in Luxor for a day then choose this tour. I did the balloon flight (also set up by the tour operator) at extra cost. It started at 330AM. Then was taken back to the hotel for a quick breakfast then a
As others have commented, there is a lot to cover and it can get pretty exhausting. We did tours everyday while we were in Egypt, but this one was the most tiring. Karnak was my favourite, and I'm glad we had enough time there. The tombs in the Valley of the Kings are great for the experience, but perhaps not as aesthetically stunning maybe it's just the three we saw. One thing we struggled with was cash. Because you are expected to pay in EGP at each place, we quickly ran out of smaller notes. It might be an idea to make sure before the tour that you have the cash in smaller notes. The guiding was fine, but I was a little bit perplexed when our guide came with me to the hotel reception desk after the tour and asked for my passport. I think he was trying to be helpful, but it really threw me, especially because we did not require any assistance the hotel staff spoke good English. All in all a good choice if you want to see all the Luxor highlights in a day.
Highly recommend this trip! Our tour guide was Mohammed, and he was so good - definitely knew his stuff! The whole process was seamless, we were picked up on time and everything was as expected, if not - better!!
If you are only in Luxor for a short time, then this trip is perfect to see the main sites! The only downside was we wanted more time in Karnak Temple as its huge and you could spend hours exploring - but this was our own fault for booking a jam packed tour so no issues!! Thank you so much Mohammed - you were amazing!
If one were to select just a single tour of Luxor, this would be the best! With an in depth look at the array of tombs and temples on both the East and West banks of the Nile, this is a treasure trove of sights and learning. My tour guide Wael was superb! He is a national treasure unto himself. One could hardly expect such a well informed, courteous guide with excellent time management skills. The majesty of Luxor comes alive with Wael's guidance. Thank you!
Better to seperate the west bank and east bank in 2 days so you could see much more if you are interested in history because there is so much to see in King's Valley, with this tour, I only visited king's valley and saw 3 tombs.
Plus it's tricky to pay tips...I gave 100 to tour guide and 60 to driver at the end of the day and the tour guide wasn't happy and told me I was ungrateful...
We were greeted by our tour guide Hady at our hotel. He was very pleasant and high spirited person. We started the tour at the West Bank. We visited The Valley of the Kings went inside three tombs, Hatshepsut temple. Hady was very knowledgable and gave us interesting facts with recent discovery and findings.I have been watching a lot about egypts history in Discovery Channel and National Geographic but having an egyptologist with you during the tour is more better and Hady was able to explain questions that is not told on tv, After west bank we headed off to east bank and saw karnak temple and luxor temple. I had a request from Hadi that I wanted to see how papyrus was made and he took us there as well. This tour is worth it all.
A piece of advise to tourist - if you plan to buy souvenirs, always haggle with prices as they are always giving you 100-150 percent top up from the original price. Better check out prices first like papyrus be sure to know it is not fake, price range from 5 to 30 , alabaster figurines and vase depends on the size but should be on the range from 5 to 20 only. Be careful of people giving you sweet talks and free especially if your touris. Nothing is free its all paid. Tourist is also expected to give tips even if they have not done anything. Some people just beg for nothing.
