Private Day Tour: East and West Banks of Luxor
US$45.00
Overview
Luxor is home to some of Egypt’s most remarkable ancient ruins, but group tours can offer limited to time to explore. This private full-day tour ensures a personalised experience and explores both the East and West Banks of the Nile, including the UNESCO-listed Valley of the Kings, the Colossi of Memnon, the temple of Hatshepsut, the Karnak Temples, and the Temple of Luxor. Hotel pickup and lunch is included.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your central Luxor hotel in time for an 8am departure. Traveling in the comfort of a private vehicle, set out to discover the city’s ancient ruins, accompanied by your private guide.

Start your tour on the West Bank, exploring the UNESCO-listed Valley of the Kings (Necropolis of Thebes), where the mountains are home to over 63 royal tombs, dating from the 2nd century BC. Venture inside to see some of the tombs, including those of King Tutmosis I, Tutmosis III, Tut-Ankh-Amon, King Ramses VI, King Mrenptah, and Amonhotep II.

Continue exploring the surrounding archeological wonders, including the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut (Deir el Bahari), the Colossi of Memnon, and the Temple of Medinat Habu (Temple of Ramses III), before breaking for lunch (included) at a local restaurant.

After lunch, cross over to the modern city on the East bank of the river and enjoy a tour of the Karnak Temples. Follow your guide around the vast temple complex, which was built between 2055 BC and 100 BC, and includes highlights such as the Avenue of the Sphinxes, the Great Hypostyle Hall, and the Sacred Lake. Finally, visit the Temple Of Luxor, built by Amunhotep III in the 18th Dynasty of the New Kingdom, and completed by Ramses II during the 19th Dynasty.

Your tour ends with drop-off at your hotel.
