Luxor 1 Day Trip By Plane From Sharm

Day Tour to Luxor from Sharm el Sheikh by Air

 

Enjoy Luxor Tour from Sharm El Sheikh by flight to see its most famous sights in one day. Visit Karnak Temple and Luxor Temple on the East bank and see the Valley of the Kings and Hatshepsut Temple on the West bank. Luxor is often described as the world’s greatest open air museum, but that comes nowhere near to describing this extraordinary place. There is simply nowhere else that comes close to the grandeur of ancient Thebes. Come and visit the once capital of the ‘New Kingdom Pharaohs’ (1570-1090BC) which has the largest wealth of ancient archeological sites in the Nile Valley.  The most important sites are split between the East and West Banks of the Nile. On the East Bank which is the ‘City of the Living’ we will visit the magnificent Temple ofKarnak and on the West Bank which is where the 'City of the Dead’ is located, we will see the colossi of Memnon, the Valley of the Kings and the breath-taking mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Our day from East bank to West bank will effectively be two terrific tours in one!
