Luxor tour from Hurghada



If you are interested in the history of Egypt and want to visit historical sites, the first thing to start with is Hurghada to Luxor day trip. Undoubtedly, the pyramids in Giza attract many tourists, being the last not destroyed wonder of the world, but Luxor is about the life and reign of the pharaohs, a story of love and hate. Temples erected in honor of the beloved, and shrines destroyed by the stepson out of revenge — you can see all this in our Luxor tour from Hurghada, feeling the centuries-old interweaving of destinies, lives, and epochs. Luxor is huge, and its exploration is still underway. Both state services and black diggers and treasure hunters perform excavations here. You won’t be able to see all the sights in one day, but we tried to choose the most fascinating ones. We also have the “Luxor 2 days” program.
We will visit three of the most important attractions, the Karnak Temple, the Valley of the Kings, and the Mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut.
We leave early in the morning, around half past four. The road will take about 4.5 hours (depending on the passage of intercity posts), and the first stop will be the Karnak Temple. It is a whole temple complex, built and modified by about 15 pharaohs, each trying to leave the brightest trace in history. Hundreds of statues, the most famous colonnade, the alley of sheep-headed sphinxes, and sacred ponds.
After the Karnak Temple, we’ll have lunch (drinks during lunch is an additional fee). After resting and gaining new strength, we will go to the Valley of the Kings. Note that it’s the Valley of the Kings, not the Queens- the difference is both in the significance of the place and its price. Many agencies take you to the Valley of Queens because it is much cheaper. The Valley of the Kings was a tomb for the pharaohs, their entourage, relatives, and dignitaries. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Our last stop will be the temple of Hatshepsut, the second historically confirmed female pharaoh. She acted as regent during the reign of Thutmose III. Everyone remembered her reign for a large number of construction activities. It took nine years to build the temple. Although destroyed later, part of it got restored. The key purpose of the construction was a portrait of Hatshepsut in the form of a sphinx. It should have been visible to everyone swimming along the Nile, so the place for construction was not chosen by chance. But, unfortunately, it was also destroyed.
With this, our tour will end, and you will return to Hurghada. Estimated arrival time – around 9 pm.
