in the morning.
The day tour will start by receiving you from your hotel in El Gouna through our Cairo Top Tours tour guide, then we will transfer you in a comfortable and private air-conditioned car.
Arriving in the land of amazing civilizations, you will start your day trip to Luxor from El Gouna, exploring the most beautiful and famous sites here! We will start at Luxor Temple, an ancient temple dedicated to Amun-Ra (one of the three main gods of ancient Egypt), which has been standing for more than 3,000 years. The temple is currently undergoing restoration work on its walls and columns, but is still very much intact - and will give you a great sense of what life was like in ancient times.
Then we head to Karnak Temple - home of Amun Ra - where we will explore the second largest religious site in the world. Then embark on a Luxor tour on the West Bank, where we will visit the Valley of the Kings which was used as a tomb for the pharaohs and their families from the 15th century BC to the 10th century AD.
The tombs are built into the cliffs on both sides of the valley, with an entrance carved into the rock face of each tomb and a Hatshepsut temple dedicated to Pharaoh Hatshepsut who ruled Egypt from 1479 BC to 1458 BC.
It was built by Senemut, a high official who worked on many major projects during her reign. He also served under her father and her brother, who followed her as president after her death.
We'll also stop at some other great spots along the way! After eating lunch, our guide will take you to make a Nile cruise in the heart of the Nile for half an hour to see the beauty of this great city and the greatness of the ancient Egyptians.
Finally, after enjoying a full-day tour in Luxor and riding a felucca in the Nile, you will return to your hotel in El Gouna again by car. your on the trip.
