Day Trip to Luxor by Air

Day Trip to Luxor by Air

You will be picked up from your hotel at around 04.30. This is an estimated time and we will confirm with you as soon as you let us know which hotel you are staying in. You will travel  in an air conditioned comfortable vehicle and will be driven to Sharm el Sheikh Airport for your morning flight to Luxor. After just a 50 minute flight from Sharm you'll be in Luxor.

 

    The amount and condition of the monuments in the Luxor area is unparalleled. Luxor is a major attraction for tourists visiting Egypt and you will really step back in time here to explore Egypt’s ancient history. You'll arrive at Luxor at around 0700 (subject to flight schedule). You will be met by your guide for the day upon arrival at Luxor Airport.

 

    First, we will go to the West Bank. It is known as the City of the Dead and is the funerary complex of the Ancient Egyptians. We will visit the Valley of the Kings – the ancient cemetery of the Pharaohs of the New Kingdom; hidden in the mountains between the two limestone hills of Gurna. The Valley of the Kings holds 63 registered tombs and 3 more tombs have recently been found.

 

    We will then visit the Hatshepsut Temple. This is a mortuary temple with a unique design as it is the only temple in Egypt built in terrace formation into the cliff face. Hatshepsut was a famous female Pharaoh who wore a false beard and all the trappings of a male Pharaoh in order that she could claim the throne.

 

    We will then visit the Memnon statues. They are the only remaining statues fronting the mortuary temple of Amenhotep III and show the Pharaoh sitting on his throne.

 

    Next, we will go across the Nile to the East Bank for lunch at Maro restaurant.

 

    Our last stop on this tour is the Karnak Temples; the largest ancient temple complex in Egypt. Karnak Temple complex is one of the major sites of Egypt, and within its boundaries the sacred energies of Ancient Egypt can still be felt. We will also see the Luxor Temple known as Temple of the Gods.

 

    We will then return to the airport for our flight back to Sharm el Sheikh; arriving in Sharm at around 20.00 (subject to the flight schedule). You will then be driven back to your hotel.
