Day One: Transfer to Luxor – Explore Luxor Attractions
Morning time, we will pick you up from your hotel in El Gouna to be transferred by a private modern A.C. car to Luxor to start your private 2 days Luxor & Aswan trip from El Gouna. Upon arrival at Luxor, you will be accompanied by your private Egyptologist guide to visit the famous Luxor tourist attractions including:
Valley of the Kings
The final resting place of Egypt’s rulers from the 18th t the 20th dynasty, it is home to tombs including the great pharaoh Ramses II and boy pharaoh 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 an oriental Nile 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.
Then you will be transferred to Aswan overnight at a 5* hotel.
Day Two: Tour to Aswan Tourist Attractions
Morning time, we will pick you up from your hotel joining your private tour guide to visit Aswan tourist attractions starting by:
Aswan High Dam
It was built across the Nile at Aswan and was constructed between 1960 and 1970, and has had a significant effect on the economy and culture of Egypt.
The Unfinished Obelisk
The largest obelisk in ancient times. It was ordered by Hatshepsut (1508 1458 BC) to complement the Lateran Obelisk (which was originally at Karnak) and was later brought to the Lateran Palace in Rome.
The 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.
Then you will have your lunch and then catch the train back to your hotel to end your Luxor & Aswan trips from El Gouna. Note: You can share your thoughts about adding or removing any tours from your tour itinerary to be able to accommodate your requirements and fulfill your needs.
