What you can expect
Uncover the wealth of ancient relics and monuments that lend Luxor its reputation as the “world's greatest open-air museum”. During this full-day tour of discovery, decipher hieroglyphics at the Valley of the Kings, visit Luxor and Karnak temples, and profit from your Egyptologist’s expertise.
Begin with a short flight to Luxor in southern Egypt, where your guide is ready to show you the highlights of the East and West banks. Gaze upon the towering monolithic statues that form the Colossi of Memnon before continuing to the Valley of the Kings. This illustrious area was the burial ground for important royal figures for nearly half a century; Tutankhamen himself was entombed here.
Having crossed to the East Bank, refresh yourself over lunch in modern Luxor. Afterwards, admire the sight of its majestic temples. The vast complex at Karnak – the largest ancient religious site in the world – is particularly impressive, and the necropolis here is on the distinguished UNESCO World Heritage Site list.
