From Hurghada: Small Group Tour to Luxor from Hurghada
Visit the famous sights of Luxor by an unforgettable day trip from Hurghada to Luxor by bus. Visit the Karnak Temple, Valley of the Kings, Colossi of Memnon and Temple of Hatshepsut with our English-speaking guide in Luxor.
Luxor consists of three parts: the city of Luxor on the east bank of the Nile, the Karnak temple district, and Thebes on the west bank of the Nile. The city is rich in historical locations and ancient culture. Over centuries, Thebes was the most powerful city in the Orient. Thebes was divided, like all the cities of ancient Egypt, into the realm of the dead on the west bank, and the kingdom of the living on the east bank.
You will be picked up from your hotel in Hurghada in the morning by our guide. Travel in an air-conditioned bus to Luxor and visit the famous Karnak temple with its huge pillars.
Enjoy your lunch during the tour in a local restaurant in Luxor.
After lunch we will go to the Valley of the Kings on the other side of the Nile and also visit the Colossi of Memnon and Hatshepsut temple.
In the Valley of the Kings, which consists of 64 tombs, you will visit 3 tombs of pharaohs. One of the is famous tomb of the boy king Tuthankamun.

I can highly recommend the tour to anyone who is looking to see as much as possible in one tour. I had a very knowledgable guide Mimo who spoke English fluently, and was very attentive and accommodating. Much content in the day, buffet lunch was great I'm a vegetarian, all in all a great day to be had. One thing I would have liked is more time at the various sites. Due to the distance you have to cover in one day, time is limited at each site - I guess one just has to accept this. It is a long day so expect to be very tired by the end of it, but it will be worth your while.
