Our rep will meet and pick you up from your hotel in Cairo and drive to Cairo Airport.
Upon your arrival at Luxor Airport, your Egyptologist guide will be waiting for you to start your day tour.
The tour begins with the Karnak temple, which is actually a complex of temples. The temple is dedicated to Amun Ra, the chief god in Egyptian mythology. Enjoy the Great Hypostyle court and the reliefs and murals that were added through the generations. Feel astonished at the tall obelisks of 70 feet high and cut off a single piece of granite. Look at the statues of the different pharaohs who want to show their loyalty to RA.
Following this, you will cross the Nile to the West bank where you will visit the Valley of the Kings This is a barren desert area in which the Pharaohs were hiding their mummies and treasures. A lot of these are found in these beautiful colored tombs. You can visit three tombs to enjoy the colors and murals on the walls. The tombs were carved deep in the mountain rock
Then continue your tour on the west bank and drive to the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut. She is the first female pharaoh in ancient Egypt who ruled the kingdom for 20 prosperous years. This temple is called El Deir el Bahari as the early Christians used the Northern monastery as it was a Coptic monastery. Unlike the other temples, this one was built of limestone and partly hewn in the mother bedrock. It has three terraces and its focal point is to tell the story of the Divine birth of the Queen.
In case of having a late flight, your guide will suggest some optional activities to cover any free time that you will have and to see as much as you can in this great historical city.
You will enjoy having lunch during the tour in a local restaurant in Luxor and finally, you will drive to Luxor airport and fly back to Cairo.

We had the opportunity to visit the
amazing Luxor with a very professional guide, Ash!
His experience and nice way to present the story and the art here preserved
, from Karnak to the valleys, contributed to make our journey special.
We enjoyed a trip from Luxor to Aswan , from the moment we arrived at Cairo airport we found a representative of the company in the airport to help us finish the the transit procedures. In luxor the tour guide Ashraf was so professional and very well informed about the Egyptian history , the cruise was nice , I recommend the services of this company and their representatives in Riyadh Haya tours
We had a wonderful day tour in Luxor with our tour guide Mr. Ashraf. The booking process was very easy due to the help of Mona Hamdy, the customer service representative. Luxor is an open air museum, temples and monuments are everywhere. We loved the city and Egypt in general. I would recommend this travel agency and Mr. Ashraf if you will visit Luxor.

Excellent Tour of Luxor with Friendly and Professional guide - a must do tour
I visited Luxor with my girlfriend recently. Following our positive experience with Your Egypt Tours in Cairo, we thought we would use them again in Luxor.
Adel put us in contact with Omar (who was born and raised in Luxor) who took us for a tour of the main sites in Luxor (valley of kings, Luxor temple etc.) . We were amazed by Omar's knowledge of Egypt's history and attention to detail, he presented each site's heritage in a way that was both accessible and made you want to learn more. The fact that Omar is a Luxor native made the whole experience even more real (he knew everyone around town, everyone by all the sites.
I honestly recommend Your Egypt to all my friends and family. You will not be disappointed - this is the best time to visit Egypt. It is very safe and not busy- trust me, go now before it gets crowded there has been no better time to visit this beautiful country.

A Professional Review of Your Egypt Tours.
Egypt must be included in any global travel
Media coverage would suggest that the current time is not suitable for visiting/touring Egypt. Suggestions that travel cannot be made safely is the opposite of the truth based on our recent experience. From the most professional handling of queries to the specific guiding of a small group tour to the Giza pyramids, "Your Egypt Tours" was found to be most competent and is to highly recommended especially our guide Mina Malak ( "the most handsome guy in Egypt"). The day-long trip from Port Said to Cairo was a long journey but was made that more interesting from the most informative and knowledgeable commentary given Mina and his continual supply of snacks. An excellent lunch was provided and was found to be most acceptable. The visits to the Egyptian museum and the papyrus studio were very informative and certainly complemented the actual viewing of the Giza pyramids and the Sphinx. Safety was never considered an issue, although the occasional military personnel were spotted on the highway attending to normal duties. The luxury of a small group tour was much appreciated and the particular attention to several associated details showed the high degree of professionalism provided by 'Your Egypt Tours'. Any further possible trips to Egypt would most definitely include this tour company.
Since 2001, Your Egypt Tours has been Egypt's foremost luxury travel company, combining comfort and authenticity in Egypt's greatest destinations. We offer Egypt tours packages, short Egypt tours, Egypt shore excursions and many others services cater to travelers looking for high quality and efficient services with a personal touch and care.
