Stop At: Valley of the Kings, Luxor City, Luxor 85511 Egypt

The Valley of the Kings (Arabic: وادي الملوك‎ Wādī al-Mulūk; Coptic: ϫⲏⲙⲉ, romanized: džēme),[1] also known as the Valley of the Gates of the Kings (Arabic: وادي ابواب الملوك‎ Wādī Abwāb al-Mulūk),[2] is a valley in Egypt where, for a period of nearly 500 years from the 16th to 11th century BC, rock-cut tombs were excavated for the pharaohs and powerful nobles of the New Kingdom (the Eighteenth to the Twentieth Dynasties of Ancient Egypt).

Stop At: Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahari, Kings Valley Rd Deir el-Bahari, Luxor 23512 Egypt

The Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut, also known as the Djeser-Djeseru (Ancient Egyptian: ḏsr ḏsrw "Holy of Holies"), is a mortuary temple of Ancient Egypt located in Upper Egypt. Built for the Eighteenth Dynasty pharaoh Hatshepsut, who died in 1458 BC, the temple is located beneath the cliffs at Deir el-Bahari on the west bank of the Nile near the Valley of the Kings. This mortuary temple is dedicated to Amun and Hatshepsut and is situated next to the mortuary temple of Mentuhotep II, which served both as an inspiration and, later, a quarry. It is considered one of the "incomparable monuments of ancient Egypt

Stop At: Colossi of Memnon, Thebes, Al Qarnah, Al Qarna, Luxor Governorate 1341703, Egypt

The Colossi of Memnon (Arabic: el-Colossat or es-Salamat) are two massive stone statues of the Pharaoh Amenhotep III, who reigned in Egypt during the Eighteenth Dynasty of Egypt. Since 1350 BCE, they have stood in the Theban Necropolis, located west of the River Nile from the modern city of Luxor.

Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Luxor Temple, Luxor 23512 Egypt

The Luxor Temple (Arabic: معبد الاقصر) is a large Ancient Egyptian temple complex located on the east bank of the Nile River in the city today known as Luxor (ancient Thebes) and was constructed approximately 1400 BCE. In the Egyptian language it is known as ipet resyt, "the southern sanctuary". In Luxor there are several great temples on the east and west banks. Four of the major mortuary temples visited by early travelers include the Temple of Seti I at Gurnah, the Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahri, the Temple of Ramesses II (i.e., Ramesseum), and the Temple of Ramesses III at Medinet Habu. The two primary cults' temples on the east bank are known as the Karnak and Luxor.[1] Unlike the other temples in Thebes, Luxor temple is not dedicated to a cult god or a deified version of the pharaoh in death. Instead, Luxor temple is dedicated to the rejuvenation of kingship; it may have been where many of the pharaohs of Egypt were crowned in reality or conceptually

Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Temple of Karnak, Karnak, Luxor Egypt

The Karnak Temple Complex, commonly known as Karnak (/ˈkɑːr.næk/,[1] from Arabic Khurnak meaning "fortified village"), comprises a vast mix of decayed temples, chapels, pylons, and other buildings near Luxor, in Egypt. Construction at the complex began during the reign of Senusret I in the Middle Kingdom (around 2000–1700 BC) and continued into the Ptolemaic period (305–30 BC), although most of the extant buildings date from the New Kingdom. The area around Karnak was the ancient Egyptian Ipet-isut ("The Most Selected of Places") and the main place of worship of the Eighteenth Dynasty Theban Triad with the god Amun as its head. It is part of the monumental city of Thebes. The Karnak complex gives its name to the nearby, and partly surrounded, modern village of El-Karnak, 2.5 kilometres (1.6 miles) north of Luxor.

Salwa was an outstanding guide that had a lot of great information on the sites. We would highly recommend her. She answered our questions and allowed us to go at our own pace. She also made sure to point out specific items that each person in our group had interest in.

I paid almost $700 for this tour for me and my husband and is definitely not worth the price. We flew with Air Cairo.Our tour guy was a lady I forgot her name, but she was not friendly at all, she was just doing her job. She was very knowledgeable, but had a thick accent, so it was very hard to understand her. No water bottles were offered to us, and it was included in the package. Lunch was OK because of the view, the salad was old and the food was eeeh alright, we were starving so we had to eat it. We got picked up around 6:30 am and the tour ended at 2 pm we had to wait in a 1 start hotel then got picked up at 8pm to take us to the airport. Our flight back to Cairo was at 9:20 pm and the airport was full we had to run to catch our flight what a nightmare! The only great thing about this tour were our drivers in Cairo, Mustafa and the other guy. They were friendly and on time!

I was not able to go on the trip with aviator because they could not get the airfare arranged. Victor uses a third party vendor and they would not contact me about scheduling my flight. When I contacted Viator they said that the vendor would contact me but never did. After many phone calls I finally was able to get a refund. I was able to go on the trip and I booked the airfare and hired a driver from the airport when I arrived in Luxor. It is much cheaper do to it on your own. The exact same thing happened to another couple that we ran into and they were not told that the trip was canceled until a few hours before they were to leave.

I strongly recommend this trip. I had a fabulous day seeing all what the valley of the kings had to offer. It was made so much better by my amazing tour guide Shereen who was so friendly and so knowledgeable of all the history I felt I could ask any questions and she was happy to help with any answers. And big thanks to my driver Ahmed for keeping us safe on the crazy roads here. When you do a trip like this let's say with a airplane involved. It is always in the back of your mind what if something goes wrong. All it takes is for one person to be in the wrong place at the wrong time and you are stuck somewhere in a country you don't know. But that wasn't the case everybody was there on time and were needed holding boards with my name on which made it so easy. Even when my flight was delayed coming back the driver was still waiting for me at the airport. Many thanks for a great day

What an absolute disaster, they changed my date of the tour so I had to change my bookings for other tours rhen wasn't able to even make it for the tour. Through it all they were what seemed to be intentionally unhelpful. Avoid this company for your tours!

First class experience, driver picks you up drops and drops you off at your hotel. Sam was an excellent tour guide, was so worth the price would pay double.

So much packed into one day, but didn't feel rushed. Very knowledgeable and friendly guide and driver. Managed to see everything I wanted. Only thing would be good is if the company explained the plan in advance, as there was a hotel booked for the long wait between the tour ending and the return flight. I was unaware of this and could have planned other activities.
