Excursion to Luxor from Sharm el Sheikh by air will let you discover just in one day the major historical sites of the city like Valley of the kings and its tombs, Karnak temples, Queen Hatshepsut temple, Memnon colossal statues and the River Nile.
Available Wed Fri
Luxor is one of the oldest cities in the world; we don't know when exactly Luxor was built. The ancient Egyptians called the city "waset" that means the scepter, but the Greek called it Thebes of the hundred gates and the Roman - Dios Polis Magana. At last when the Arab conquered Egypt they gave it the name of Luxor and it means the palaces as the city has lots of ancient temples. 2/3 world's monuments are located in Luxor. And we will visit with you the main temples and shrines of the city.
You do not need to worry about transfers as we do pickups from any hotel in Sharm el Sheikh. We will pick up from your hotel in Sharm el Sheikh. as per the time stated in your invoice, as a rule between 04:45 am and 05:15 am depending on your hotel location. Our representative will transfer you by a/c van to Sharm el Sheikh International Airport, will give you some instructions so you will catch your flight to Luxor hassle free. Flight to Luxor takes just 50 minutes. Our English speaking guide will be waiting for you outside the arrival hall of Luxor airport with the sign "sharm-club.com".
Our first destination will be West bank where we will visit the west Thebes. On the way to the Valley of the Kings we will have a short stop at Colossi of Memnon to take some pictures with these gigantic statues. These two somewhat weathered seated statues greet visitors to the necropolis. They are all that remain of what was once the largest mortuary temple in the necropolis, that of Amenhotep III.
Deep in the limestone hills to the north-west of Deir el Bahri is a remote valley known as the Valley of the Kings . Here are the pharaohs of the 18th, 19th & 20th Dynasties chose their eternal resting place. Thutmose I was the 1st pharaoh to excavate a tomb in the barren valley, and to construct his mortuary temple at the edge of the verdant valley. Here the most famous King Tutankhamen is situated. Can be optionally visited on your day tour (150 LE per ticket ). This famous tomb is among the smallest in the Valley of the Kings but the only one that was found non robed. The five thousand-odd objects cataloged from the tomb represent a unique accumulated collection and, perhaps, the richest placed in any tomb. Our visit includes entrance to 2 different tombs, so you can get an idea about Pharaonic funerary art.
Next stop at the most beautiful temple of the Valley Queen Hatshipsut temple at Deir el Bahari. This terraced sanctuary designed by queen’s architect Senmut is the most beautiful temple in the necropolis. Her temple was designed like the adjacent 11th Dynasty mortuary temple of Mentuhotep the Great, with terraced courts. These rose, one above the other, by connecting inclined planes at the centre.
Lunch in a local restaurant in Luxor on set menu basis will be offered.
After lunch we'll go to the East bank to explore huge temples of Karnak which has no equal in the world. It is not a single temple, but temple within temple, shrine within shrine, where almost all the pharaohs, particularly of the new Kingdom, wished to record their names & deeds for posterity. Its famous Great Hypostyle hall has 134 columns arranged in sixteen rows, covers an area of 4,983 square metres. It is the largest single chamber of any temple in the world. The hall was decorated throughout. All the walls and the shafts of the columns were covered with reliefs & inscriptions showing adoration of the deities, especially Amon-Ra.
Nile felucca ride to Banana island to discover a vast collection of banana plants, to enjoy sailing along the Nile and to observe a beautiful Upper Egyptian countryside and its islands is offered optionally and costs 15£ per person.
By the end of the program you will get some time for shopping and then transfer to Luxor airport to catch your flight back to Sharm el Sheikh where our representative will meet you and transfer to your hotel.
booked day trips from Sharm elsheikh online as our tour operator was so expensive for the same tour, we went to Luxor with this perfect tour agency. The trip was long, we were picked up at 4.00 am but the car and tour guide and driver were excellent could not ask for better they were waiting for us at Luxor airport and dropped us back to our hotel in Sharm elsheikh on perfect smooth way. great lunch all included.

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, ÂŁ50 cheaper than most holiday providers and a fantastic day!
