Private Ancient Luxor Tour
Private Ancient Luxor Tour
It's just you and a small group with a dedicated tour guide as you visit the famous attractions in and around Luxor.
Your adventure starts when you are personally greeted at the port by your English speaking Egyptologist guide who will take you to an air-conditioned vehicle for an approximately 3-hour ride out to Luxor. Admire the scenery as your guide shares stories and points out items of interest. See the famous Karnak Temple, a vast open air museum filled with decaying temples, chapels and pylons. Built between the Middle Kingdom and the Greco Roman Kingdom, Karnak is the second largest ancient religious site in the world and has four sections (one which is open to the public). Take a selfie with Hypostyle Hall, a gigantic hall area containing 134 massive columns ranging in height from 10 to 21 meters.
Stop at a nearby restaurant for authentic Egyptian food then head to the West Bank of the Nile River to see the colossal statues of Amenhotep III (Colossi of Memnon). These 18 meter tall twin statues depict the 14th century Pharaoh and were built to guard Amenhotep's memorial temple. Travel to the Valley of the Kings where 63 tombs and chambers hold ancient kings and privileged royals. Carved deep into desert rock, these tombs were richly outfitted with decorations and treasures for the departed to use in the afterlife. Your final stop will be at Hatshepsut Temple, a massive, multi-terraced temple is situated beneath the looming cliffs at El Deir El Bahary. This ancient funerary shrine was dedicated to Hatshepsut, the only female Pharoah. From there you will be escorted back to your ship.

This was an absolutely amazing tour. Our driver and guide were absolutely amazing and always had our safety and health foremost on their minds. It was a very hot day in the valley of the Kings and our guide always looked for shade to do his presentations. We were doing this tour during Ramadan but our guide was most respectful. He arranged for a boat to take us across the Nile to the restaurant for a delicious lunch. He also arranged a wonderful surprise for us for our Anniversary. Being a private tour we had full control over the agenda for the day. I highly recommend this tour and our guide Abdo Snosy was the best

The tour was great. Our tour guide was Abdo Snosy. Can you please tell his company that the entire group thought he was great. He kept us on tract. We enjoyed the Valley of the Kings, short trip on the Nile, Temple of Hatshepsut, Luxor Temple and stopped for lunch. The entire trip was wonderful.
