What To Expect

Your personal Egyptologist greets you at your hotel, cruise ship, or even the airport and whisks you across the river to the West Bank. Tour Luxor’s signature sight, the Valley of the Kings, where pharaohs including Tutankhamun were laid to rest in richly decorated tombs.

Your next stop is the Temple of Hatshepsut, a vast monument to Egypt’s original female pharaoh. Then, admire the Colossi of Memnon, two gigantic statues that once guarded a temple.

Depending on the option you’ve selected, enjoy an included restaurant lunch (with drinks at your own expense) or stop to eat and pay as you go.

Return across the Nile to the East Bank to see ancient remains in the heart of Luxor city: Karnak Temple and Luxor Temple, ancient Egypt’s two most important places of worship.

Finally, your chauffeur will bring you back to your hotel, ship, or even the airport.

Best option to travel the popular sites of Luxor
Nilay_C, May 2024
What a great, exciting beautiful knowledgable and historical tour. It is well-planned and managed and covers the most popular sites of luxor. The guide was quite friendly and knowledgeable. And afterwards at each site, gave me ample amount of time to explore myself and take photos. Strongly recommend
Amazing - Sam is the best tour man
Stephanie_M, Apr 2024
Could not rate this tour highly enough. Sam our guide was amazing, so informative and knowledgeable at every site we visited and knew answers to every question we had! Would come back again purely to learn more from him, could spend days listening and learning about all. The sites are amazing, a must see in Luxor or any visit to Egypt. We were short on time as here on business so were flying in for the day from Cairo (booked our flights ourselves), and Sam went above and beyond to ensure we were somewhere safe and nice to wait for our flight home and arranged a transfer to airport so we didn’t spend hours waiting there. He didn’t have to do any of that as we knew there would be a wait after our tour but he did and I’m so thankful for that. Felt incredibly safe, as with most tourist destinations there are always people trying to sell you things or con you out of giving them money, but nothing in comparison to Cairo and the pyramids, and Sam had our backs when needed.
Great day in Luxor
Luke_V, Apr 2024
We had a great time in Luxor discovering all the beautiful temples and history. Our guide was good and she definitely enhanced the experience with her knowledge.
Our tour guide Sam spoiled what should have been a wonderful tour.
Chaz_L, Apr 2024
Unfortunately we had Sam as our tour guide who was very miserable from the off. He had trouble finding our hotel which put him in a bad mood, totally unprofessional and if you plan to book this tour, try and avoid him. I’m sure there are allot more better tour guides out there.
Luxor Completed in a Day - Nice Carefree Tour
MdRashed_M, Jan 2024
We enjoyed the Tour. Our guide gave us lot of details. The only downside of the tour was the lunch; it could be better. Other than that, it was a wonderful experience. Luxor completed in a day.
gautam_v, Dec 2023
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Luxor. We are family of four with two young children. Our guide salwa was very knowledgeable and very helpful. She was able to customize the tour for our family. We were able to see everything we wanted to see in the time that we want to see it. Five stars. Great job.
Amy_P, Dec 2023
Very well educated& knowledgeable guide. Really wish he didn’t take us to the gift shop that we didn’t want anything with it :(
Wonderful discovery of Luxor beauty
Damiano_B, Dec 2023
Everything was perfect. Maria was nice and charming both while guiding us around the place and helping us "dealing" with local people and shops. Don't forget to take a selfie with Tutankamon!
Great Full Day Private Tour!
Morgan_L, Oct 2023
Booked a last minute full day private tour of Luxor. Our driver and guide met us at our hotel at 7am to beat the crows at Karnak temple. Also visited Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut Temple, had lunch, and ended at Luxor temple. Our guide Sawsan was great! Everything was well organized with tickets ready to go so we didn't have to deal with that either. Our driver was also so nice and professional. The convenience of tour absolutely made it worth it. Our guide Sawsan was pretty down to let us go at our own speed, which made things go quickly but also allowed us more time where we wanted it. We did make a stop at an alabaster shop, which was a very nice shop, but one of those deals where you feel obligated to buy something, even when the prices are beyond out of line. The only suggestion I'd have for the day would be skipping that. Seeing all the large tour groups waiting and waiting on busses and the rest of their group just made a private car a no brainer. Sawsan and our driver were awesome, Highly recommend!
Amazing day in Luxor with our guide, Sam
Houman_A, Oct 2023
We had the most amazing time with our guide, Sam. He was incredibly knowledgeable and very helpful with tips of how to navigate through all of the experiences. Valley of the kings, temple of Karnak, Luxor temple, and Hatshepsut's temple. We really enjoyed our time with Sam. He was kind, friendly and made the day the most enjoyable by having everything lined up and guiding us all the way. Our lunch was excellent, and he took some great photos of us together along the way as well. I knew right away when seeing Sam have such compassion for the stray animals that we would enjoy our time with him! Thank you, Sam, for making this day in Luxor one that exceeded our expectations.
Great tour led by a great guide!
William_K, Oct 2023
Our guide, Samer, was fantastic! He was knowledgeable, professional, and very friendly. He took us to all of the major sites and explained the context and culture of each. An excellent tour and very good value for the money. I highly recommend this!

Prepare for Walking!
Sabrina_A, Sep 2023
I enjoyed the vast history—so many great artifacts to gaze upon. However, it was my fault for not realizing all the valleys of the king's tombs were pretty far underground. You know how they didn't want to make it easy for robbers? Well, that means you too. I would do it again, but I regret not getting the lunch packet; I needed a break 2/3 through. We got the tickets for the last temple from them and went and ate for 2 hours because the last temple didn't close until 9 p.m. Again, the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly.
Prepare to stand in awe before these ruins.
Brent_H, Aug 2023
The magnificent statues and remaining ruins are an amazing viewer experience. Television and pictures do not do the history of the ancient Egyptian structures or people justice.
Good way to see Luxor!
Allison_H, Jul 2023
We had a wonderful day with our guide, Shareen! It was a wonderful way to see the sights and this tour was a good mix between guided and time to explore. Would definitely recommend!
Awesome 👌
Mark_W, Jun 2023
This tour is awesome. Shereen was very knowledgeable and a joy to be around. I highly recommend. The driver had a nice vehicle and was very nice. Also the lunch was very good!👌
Overall great
Anjana_R, May 2023
I was initially going to give this your 5 stars but had to dock a point because we found out later that we were vastly over charged (2-3x) in the souvenir shops we went to. After talking to some locals we were told that this is Emo Tours’ m.o. have cheap tours and make $ off of sales in shops. The tour itself is great and very informative! We learned a lot, and were given enough time to explore the sites on our own. Just be careful about the shops…say no and get it at the shops along the west and east bank
The guide created an...

Amazing Luxor Tour with an amazing tour guide
Malcolm_M, May 2023
This was a trip of a life time , no words can describe , how it felt like walking through history and learning how amazing and rich in life and character Luxor City is. The best thing about this trip was my tour guide Ayad and the driver (shown in pictures) who were the nicest , kindest and most knowledgeable people about the history of Ancient Egypt and the city of Luxor. They both come highly recommended from me if you want to learn thorough knowledge about ancient Egypt and have the most fun relaxed time while doing it. Please book these guys if you have chance. Ayad also takes some very good photos too i might add. Enjoy Luxor!!!
