Get an early start with pickup at your centrally located hotel in Hurghada, and begin the 3.5-hour trip from Hurghada to Luxor in a climate-controlled minivan, enjoying views of the desert landscape along the way.
The guide will share some background on ancient Egyptian history and culture during the trip, and the first stop of the day is the Valley of the Kings, where you’ll choose three fascinating tombs to visit, with the option to purchase additional tickets to King Tutankhamun’s tomb.
Next, head to the Temple of Hatshepsut, a monument to Egypt’s only female pharaoh, see the Colossi of Memnon, and visit an island on the Nile for a classic Egyptian lunch. Return to ancient Egypt in the massive Karnak Temple, then cool off with a 30-minute felucca cruise along the scenic Nile River. The day concludes with return transfer to your hotel in Hurghada.
