Day One: Hurghada to Luxor – Discover Luxor Highlights
In the morning time, we will pick you up from your hotel in Hurghada to transfer by a private modern A.C. car to Luxor to start your private 2 days Luxor & Aswan tours from Hurghada. Upon arrival to Luxor, you will be accompanied by your private Egyptologist tour guide to explore the masterpieces of ancient Egyptian pharaohs by visiting the most famous archaeological sites including:
Valley of the Kings
The final resting place of Egypt’s rulers from the 18th to the 20th dynasty is home to tombs including the great pharaoh King Ramses II and boy pharaoh King Tutankhamen. The tombs were well stocked with all the material goods a ruler might need in the next world. Most of the decoration inside the tombs is still well preserved.
It is one of the most beautiful & best preserved of all of the Ancient Egyptian temples. The temple was built on three levels with two wide ramps in a central position joining the levels together.
Colossi of Memnon
Two massive stone statues of king Amenhotep III are the only remains of a complete mortuary temple. The statues are made from blocks of quartzite sandstone that exist in Cairo and then moved 700 KM to Luxor.
Lunch will be served at the oriental Nile River view restaurant, then join your private guide to enjoy:
No site in Egypt is more impressive than the Karnak temple. It is the largest temple complex ever built by man. It represents the combined achievement of many generations of ancient builders and Pharaohs. The Temple of Karnak is three main temples situated on 247 acres of land.
At the end of the day, we will transfer you to the Luxor train station to catch the 1st class train to Aswan and upon arrival, transfer to your 5* hotel in Aswan to check in 5* and spend the overnight.
Day Two: Visit Aswan Attractions – Back to Hurghada
Morning time, we will pick you up from your hotel joining your private Egyptologist tour guide to continue your trip by visiting Aswan tourist attractions such as:
The High Dam
It was built across the Nile at Aswan and was constructed between 1960 and 1970, the High Dam has had a significant effect on the economy and culture of Egypt.
The Unfinished Obelisk
The unfinished obelisk is the largest in ancient times. It was ordered by Queen Hatshepsut (1508 1458 BC) to complement the Lateran Obelisk (which was originally at Karnak} and was later brought to the Lateran Palace in Rome.
Philae temple is dedicated to the goddess Isis of Love and beauty. The temple complex was dismantled and relocated to nearby Agilkia Island as part of the UNESCO Nubia Campaign project, protecting this and other complexes before the 1970 completion of the Aswan High Dam.
