Day One: Travel to Luxor and explore the city’s attractions.
We will pick you up from your Marsa Alam hotel in a private air-conditioned modern vehicle to take you to Cairo and Luxor. When you arrive in Luxor, you will be greeted by your private tour guide, who will accompany you to the famous historical sites such as:
The Valley of Kings
It is the final resting place of Egypt’s rulers from the 18th to the 20th dynasties, and it contains tombs of great pharaoh Ramses II and boy pharaoh Tutankhamen. The tombs were well-stocked with all the material goods that a ruler might require in the afterlife. The majority of the decoration inside the tombs has survived.
Temple of Hatshepsut
It is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved temples in Ancient Egypt. The temple was built on three levels, with two wide ramps connecting them in the center.
The only remnants of a complete mortuary temple are two massive stone statues of King Amenhotep III. The statues are made from blocks of quartzite sandstone found in Cairo and transported 700 kilometers to Luxor.
Then proceed to an island for lunch, so your tour includes a boat ride on the Nile River followed by a visit to:
Temple of Karnak
Karnak is Egypt’s most impressive site. It is the world’s largest temple complex. It is the culmination of many generations of ancient builders and Pharaohs. The Temple of Karnak consists of three main temples spread across 247 acres of land.
In the evening, you will check into a 5-star hotel in Luxor for the night.

The complex consists of three main pyramids, six small pyramids, the Great Sphinx, and the Valley Temple. The complex was built during the 4th dynasty, 2400 years ago.
The Great Pyramid of Giza
The Great Pyramid was built by “King Khufu” and is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids on the Giza plateau, as well as the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World to have survived intact. The great pyramid stands 147 meters tall, was built with 2,300,000 stones, and took twenty years to complete.
