Day 3
We arrive at Luxor and check into our hotel. Home of the legendary Valley of the Kings and Temple of Karnak, 4000-year-old Luxor is ancient Egypt at its best. This afternoon you can explore Luxor on foot following the waterside corniche, relax by the pool or maybe stop for a drink at one of the many Nile side cafes and tea houses. Tonight, there is an optional visit to view the Temple of Luxor at night. Book and pay locally. The remainder of the evening at leisure.
Day 4
You can opt to float over Luxor in a hot air balloon first thing this morning before we visit Luxor’s famous West Bank. The twin seated statues known as the Colossi of Memnon are the first site we’ll see before we visit the legendary Valleys of the Kings and the imposing limestone, colonnaded Temple of Hatshepsut. Hatshepsut was one of only 3 Egyptian ruling queens. The most famous tomb in the Valley of the Kings is that of the boy-King Tutankhamen. Archaeologist Howard Carter discovered his intact and treasure-filled tomb in 1922. After exploring the West Bank we take a break before visiting the colossal Temple of Karnak.
The rest of the day is at leisure.
Day 5
Luxor – Hurghada. Departing Luxor we head east to Hurghada part of the beautiful Red Sea Riviera for 4 days on the beach!
Day 6-8
Luxor Hotel Cairo EgyptThe next 3 days are free to explore Hurghada or simply relax. On day 6 there’s an optional day trip to Giftun Island for swimming and snorkeling, which can be booked locally.
Hurghada is one of the most popular Red Sea resorts. Hotels and expanded infrastructure provide holidaymakers with excellent aquatic facilities for sail boarding, yachting, deep-sea fishing, SCUBA diving and snorkeling, and Hurghada’s central location provides a gateway to prime offshore reefs, which are some of the finest in the world. Hurghada also has plenty of restaurants and late night bars for evening entertainment. Just outside town is an ancient Roman quarry called Mons Porphyritis and Port Safarga – a famously windy place which is ideal for windsurfing.
Day 9
Hurghada – Cairo. This morning we depart Hurghada and head back to Cairo. We take a guided tour of the enlightening Egyptian Museum, where you can see the famed solid gold death mask of King Tutankhamun and opt to visit the Royal Mummy room.
Day 10
Thursday. Cairo – breakfast. Hotel checks out and included onward transfer to the airport.
