A visit to Luxor from our El Gouna Day Tours is a trip back in time. You'll see the temples and tombs that were built by the pharaohs thousands of years ago, and you can even visit some of the more famous ones like Hatshepsut's Temple or Valley of the Kings in your Luxor tour from El Gouna.
Luxor is a city of legend and intrigue. This ancient city was the capital of Egypt during the New Kingdom, and it's still home to some of the most impressive monuments in all of Egypt's tours. You'll see all the major attractions on this Luxor Day Tour such as the Temple of Karnak, which was used for religious ceremonies by priests and pharaohs; the Valley of the Kings, where kings and queens were buried; and the Colossi of Memnon, two massive statues that stand in front of what used to be a temple. You'll also get to visit the Luxor Museum, which houses thousands of artifacts that have been excavated from around Egypt including some truly incredible mummies! But you don't have to go it alone: take this incredible Day Trip from El Gouna to Luxor with us, and we'll make sure your time in Luxor is nothing less than unforgettable.
The day tour will start with a pick-up by one of our tour guides in your hotel lobby in El Gouna and then we will transfer you by a private A/C Car. Upon arrival, you will start your Luxor day trip from El Gouna, exploring all the most beautiful and iconic sites here! We'll start at Luxor Temple, an ancient temple dedicated to Amun-Ra (one of the three main gods of Ancient Egypt), which has stood for more than 3,000 years.
The temple is currently undergoing restoration work on its walls and columns, but it remains largely intact—and will give you a great sense of what life was like in ancient times. Then we'll head over to Karnak Temple—home of Amun-Ra—where we'll explore the second-largest religious site in the world (after Angkor Wat).
Then it's off to the Luxor west bank tour, where we'll visit the Valley of the Kings which was used as a burial site for pharaohs and their families from 15th century BC to 10th century AD. The tombs were made in the cliffs on either side of the valley, with each tomb having an entrance cut into the rock face and Hatshepsut Temple which is dedicated to the female 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 brother, who followed her as rulers after her death.
We'll also stop by some other great sites along the way! Finally, after you enjoy the full-day tour of Luxor, you will return to your hotel in El Gouna.
Luxor is a great historical city in Egypt, it contains a third of the world's monuments, and it gains its modern name from one of the Arab tribes who came to Egypt later, when they saw these temples, pylons, and monuments they imagined that it looks like the palaces so they named it the city of el Qossor which is driven to Luxor.
