Day 2. Moving to Luxor

Pick up from your hotel in Cairo, transfer to the airport and fly to Luxor. The flight will take around 50 minutes. Meet in Luxor airport by our professional English speaking tour guide and transfer by air-conditioned van to the west bank of Thebes.

West Bank visit

The West Bank of Luxor is known as the city of dead. It is the funerary complex of the ancient Egyptians. Here you have the opportunity to let go off anything that has died and no longer serves you using the power of the god Anubis, jackal headed god of the underworld. Explore the cycles of birth, death and rebirth which are rooted in Ancient Egyptian mythology.

Valley of the Kings

Valley of the Kings is the ancient cemetery of the pharaohs of the New Kingdom and is hidden in the mountains on the West Bank of Luxor between the two limestone hills of Gurna. It was named by Francois Champollion as Valley of the Kings. All of the tombs were robbed in antiquity, except for the tomb of the boy king Tutankhamen which was found completely intact in 1922 by Howard Carter. The Valley of the Kings holds 63 registered tombs and recently 2 more tombs have been found. Your visit includes entry into 3 tombs, however if you wish to see either the tomb of Tutankhamen or Ramses 6, there is an additional ticket cost.

Hatshepsut temple

Queen Hatshepsut temple or Deir el Bahari temple. is a mortuary temple with a unique design as it is the only temple in Egypt built in terrace formation into the cliff face. Queen Hatsheptsut was a famous female pharaoh who wore a false beard and all the trappings of the male pharaohs in order to claim the throne for herself. There are chapels dedicated to the goddess Hathor the goddess of motherhood, joy, love, peace, happiness and music, and chapels dedicated to Anubis, the god of mummification and death, and Amun-Ra the king of the gods. On the temple walls are reliefs showing the first commercial trading expedition to Somalia (ancient land of Punt).

The Colossi of Memnon

Colossi of Memnon are the only remaining standing statues fronting the mortuary temple of Amenhotep III and show the pharaoh sitting on his throne. The temple itself was destroyed in an earthquake and much of the ruins were used in other building works by other pharaohs. However, in recent years, new excavations have revealed many statues and other artifacts buried underground, including many statues of the goddess Sekhmet.

Karnak temples

Karnak temple is the largest ancient temple complex in Egypt measuring 62 acres. It was in use continuously for 1700 years. The main temple area was dedicated to Amun-Ra, the patron god of Luxor and it has the largest Hypostyle Hall (columned hall) in the world which is unrivaled. Within the complex is the small chapel dedicated to the goddess Sekhmet and the chapel of the Divine Adoratrice which is often known as the Osiris chapel. Karnak Temple complex is one of the major sights of Ancient Egypt and within its bounds the sacred energies of Ancient Egypt can still be felt.

Shopping time in Luxor

During the day you will also have a great opportunity for shopping in markets of Luxor.

Back to Sharm el Sheikh

At the end of the day transfer to Luxor airport and from there fly back to Sharm El Sheikh, then drive to your hotel.

We have just returned from a week's holiday in Sharm and booked the two day trip to Luxor and Cairo. It was AMAZING. Book with Sharm Club - they're so accommodating and professional. Both of our guides (Ahmed in Luxor and 'George' in Cairo) were very knowledgeable and made the trip one to remember. If anyone is worried about booking over the internet don't be - the trip was so well organised and much cheaper than trips organised elsewhere.

Graeme & EniReviewed 15 December 2015

We took part in both the Cairo and Luxor excursions and they were the best days of our holiday! The guides were fantastic, excellent English speakers and truly knew what they were talking about. We learnt lots from them and thoroughly enjoyed our time. Group sizes were small which was good as we could actually listen and talk to the guides and everything was organised and executed with ease. Brilliant prices, £50 cheaper than most holiday providers and a fantastic day!

What can we say....brilliant! Flew to Cairo from Sharm, short flight, comfortablw etc. Picked by Ali, who was brilliant. Very knowledgeable and told us everything we needed to know about Cairo and the museum. king Tuts treasures was amazing, and if you can, pay to see the royal mummies. Ramesis 11 was awesome!!!! The pyramids were spectacular, and going inside the Great Pyramid was unbelievable (legs ached after!)The Sphinx was also brilliant, as was the small cruise downt he Nile on a fellaca. tayed in hotel overnight, then flew to Luxor. The Valley of the Kings was amazing also...but very hot, to see the tomb of Rameses 11after you have seen his mummy was sureal!!!! Taken to Howard Carters home and then to Hapshetshuts temple, karnak temple and luxor temple......all equally awesome. The service we got from Ali in Cairo was outstanding, as was our guide in Luxor, Mawa, a female guide who was so knowledgeablewe learnt everything we needed to know. Lunch in Luxor was in a local restaurant, very enjoyable also. All in all, We would FULLY RECOMEND Sharm Club as it made our holiday. We were a party of two, but joined with 2 other people, so being in a group of 4 made it much more special!!! Thank you for a wonderful 2 day excursion.

Booked 2 day Luxor/Cairo on web in UK. No hastle just a deposit.Organisation was great everything well planned and explained when we got there. Both very full days with great guides, could not have been done better. George on Friday in Cairo was exceptional and did a great job of building our knowledge and understanding as well as maximising the time. Highly recommend Sharm Club-you will not get better
