There’s nowhere else quite like Luxor. Built on the 4,000-year old site of Egypt’s one-time capital of Thebes, it’s stacked with the building works of the great Pharaohs, making it one serious open-air museum. On this trip, you’ll fly to the city for a day of guided sightseeing that will whisk you back through the millennia in an instant. Walk the spectacular Valley of the Kings, whose limestone hills are peppered with 62 hand-carved tombs. Crane your neck at the massive twin statues of the Colossi of Memnon that guard the valley. And go deep into the most famous tomb of all - that of the boy king Tutankhamun. Nearby you’ll find another Pharaonic powerhouse - the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. With its symmetrical colonnades, it looks as if it was built only yesterday. After a complimentary lunch, you’ll cross the Nile to see two more of Luxor’s highpoints. Gasp at the vast pillars of Karnak and marvel at the incredible obelisks and sphinxes of Luxor Temple before heading to the airport for your return flight. And why not book a VIP upgrade? With private transfers and your own chauffeured car and personal guide in Luxor, it’ll make your day extra special.
