Day Trip to Luxor Valley of Kings from Sharm El Sheikh by air
Trip to the ancient city of Luxor in a luxury private day trip from Sharm El Sheikh by plane. You will be picked up from your hotel in Sharm El Sheikh to Sharm El Sheikh airport to fly to Luxor. In arrival in Luxor you will be accompanied by your private Egyptologist guide from Private Tours Egypt to discover Luxor. Luxor – a site often referred to as the greatest outdoor museum in the world. Cross over the might Nile and drive through lush farmland and sugar plantations to edge of the desert where you will find the tombs of the pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings. Cut directly into the mountains, the tombs were filled with treasures beyond comprehension and covered in beautiful painted hieroglyphics depicting the life of the king they housed. Your guide will bring the stories to life as you explore the tombs before continuing to the impressive mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Architecturally stunning, this temple would not look out of place with modern buildings and contains beautiful murals on its inner walls. On your return to Luxor’s East Bank, there is a photo opportunity at the Colossi of Memnon, two gigantic statues that stand proudly, yet virtually alone at the entrance to what was Amenhotep III’s mortuary temple.
After lunch, continue to the hugely impressive Temple of Karnak. An amazing feat of ancient Egyptian engineering, the complex comprises three temples and took several generations to complete. The centre-piece is undoubtedly the Temple of Amun-Ra, the largest surviving column-supported temple in the World although the hypostyle hall containing 134 free standing columns is also world renowned and the backdrop for several Hollywood films. Then we will return back to Luxor airport to fly back to Sharm El Sheikh with direct drop off at your hotel.
