3 days Luxor itinerary from Hurghada: West bank of Luxor, Valley of the kings, Valley of the queens, Karnak temple, Luxor temple, Hatshepsut temple, Sphinxes Avenue, Abydos temple

Tour to the West bank of Luxor

Our private tour to Luxor for 3 days will start in the early morning with a transfer from your Hurghada hotel to Luxor. The distance from Hurghada to Luxor around 310 km, we will take a coastal road so the journey may take up to 4 hours.

When you arrive in Luxor our English speaking guide will meet you. The tour starts with the West Bank of the Nile visit. Today the guide will introduce you to the following places:
- Valley of the Kings - you will enter 3 different tombs.
- Valley of the Queens - three different tombs can be explored.
- Noble Tombs - you can choose which tombs to enter if you want some particular to see, if no our guide will introduce you to the area on his own discretion.
- Temple of Queen Hatshepsut
- Medinet Habu Temple
- Stop at old and new Colossi of Memnon for some photos on the way to the Valleys.

Second part of the day we will dedicate to lunch in the city and after take a motor-boat to cross the Nile to the East Bank where our hotel is located. Check-in 4* hotel on BB basis, standard DBL accommodation is available. Free evening at leisure.

Sphinxes Avenue and Karnak temple tour

A hot air balloon tour (optionally, $80 per person) is available at sunrise. More details about Hot Air Balloon Luxor.

After breakfast at the hotel, you can either relax by the pool and spend some hours on your own or start the day earlier to avoid sun and heat that is common to Luxor especially in early autumn and late spring. Our guide will pick you up as scheduled and take you to a sightseeing tour of Luxor Temple and a walk along the Sphinxes Avenue. You can walk all 4,5 km along the avenue and reach the Karnak Temple on foot or take just some meters along a beautifully restored path and sphinxes before taking your car to drive to Karnak Temple. Entering Karnak Temple on foot is more spectacular but requires more physical endurance. Sightseeing tour of Karnak Temple takes 2-3 hours: visit the Sacred Lake, the largest scarab beetle, an open-air museum with unique chapels and many small temples and chapels hidden inside the hude religious complex of Karnak.

After lunch in the city, you can go for a walk to the local bazaar or spend the evening at your own discretion. Back to our hotel for a relaxing night.

Mysterious Abydos temple tour

Today we will go to a very beautiful and mysterious temple, located some 50 km far from Luxor city and known as Abydos. Our program includes visit of Seti I temple and mysterious structure known as Oseirion. After the tour we will proceed directly to Hurghada.
