What to expect

Join this overnight tour to Luxor´s highlights starting from Marsa Alam! Described as one of the world's greatest open-air museums, Luxor is home to many iconic jewels like Karnak Temple, the Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut Temple and Luxor Temple with the amazing Sphinx Avenue.

On day one, in the early morning, you will start your journey from your hotel in Marsa Alam with a drive towards Luxor along the Red Sea coast and then through the Eastern Desert until reaching the Nile Valley. After an approximately five-hour drive, you head straight to your first stop of the day, the impressive Karnak Temple, a sprawling complex of towering temples followed by Luxor Temple with the Sphinx Avenue that was built to connect the vast Karnak temple to the Luxor Temple.

Then it's time to rest your legs and tuck into a delicious set menu lunch and check-in at Hotel Steigenberger or Iberotel Luxor. In the evening, experience the sound and light show at Karnak temple, which is a 1,5-hour Hollywood-style extravaganza that recounts the history of Thebes and the lives of the many pharaohs who built sanctuaries, courts, statues, and obelisks in honor of Amun. For dinner and the night, you will be back in the hotel in Luxor.

Day two starts with the check-out from the hotel and a drive towards Luxor West Bank to visit the Valley of the kings. You'll enter three of its 63 royal tombs and then take in the ancient Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut and the staggering Colossi of Memnon, two monumental statues of equally monumental size. A Nile experience on board a felucca makes your day while sailing from Luxor West Bank to East Bank towards a hotel for a delicious set menu lunch. A ride by motorboat is an alternative during windy days. After lunch, drive straight a way back to Marsa Alam.

Don´t miss this memorable experience!
