Fascinating Luxor

You depart early morning from Safaga in an escorted convoy for a journey lasting approximately 3 ½ hours. The luxurious motor coaches are fully air conditioned, with reclining seats and equipped with rest rooms. Sit back and enjoy the unfolding vistas of barren mountains, flat desert and fertile areas as your guide introduces you to the history of Upper Egypt.

Arriving in Luxor, drive across the Nile to its West Bank where the Valley of the Kings is situated to visit three of the amazing royal tombs.

Before crossing to the East Bank you will stop for photographs at the famous statues of Amenophis III, also known as the Colossi of Memnon, standing exactly where they once flanked the entrance to the Temple 5000 ago. Let your imagination soar and with the mind’s eye witness the glorious entrance to the temple by Alexander the Great, a god paying his respects to another.

Take time out relax and enjoy a sumptuous buffet lunch in a deluxe 5*hotel.

After lunch visit the greatest place of worship in history, the breathtaking Karnak Temple with its unique Hypostyle hall, sacred lake and avenue of the Sphinxes. Afterwards, a short photo stop at Luxor Temple will take place before joining the scheduled convoy for the return journey to Safaga.
