The wow factor hits you when you arrive here. A truly amazing experience, steeped in history, the worlds largest outdoor museum never ceases to amaze you. A more relaxed trip than Cairo, but still so much to see and do. Fully guided by an Egyptologist that can answer all your questions about the world famous "Valley of the Kings" the west bank, Luxor and Karnack temples and much more. Certainly not to be missed.
An early start with a collection from your hotel at around 04:30am with your flight departing Sharm el Sheikh at 06:00am. You will be met by our guide in Luxor for the start of your trip and transferred around in an air conditioned vehicle for the duration of the day. This is a relaxed but very enlightening day. The day consists of a trip over to the West bank to the "City of the dead" which is steeped in ancient Egyptian mythology. Then on to the "Valley of the Kings" An exceptionally interesting time, be prepared for a little walking here and it is out in the sun so always take a little water with you. Here you will also have the chance to see the Tomb of Ramses VI. Then on to see the Karnack temple and the colossus of Memnon and of course the most famous temple the temple of Hatshepsut!! Guides are not permitted entry to the tombs but they will explain fully beforehand what to expect and what to look for inside. Certain tomb's require an extra fee for entry, this includes the tomb of Tutankamun and this is always payable at source. Lunch in a local restaurant is included in the cost but drinks are extra. You then have an option for a River Nile trip on a Falucca around Banana Island, this is payable at source. A small amount of time is put to one side for any of you wishing to do a little shopping in any of the local bazaar's and also visit an albaster factory.You will then be transferred back to the airport ready for your return flight to Sharm. Here you will be collected and returned to your hotel for about 9:30pm just in time to catch your evening meal. A fabulous day and certainly a day to remember. Please don't forget to take your camera.
