Know More about this tour

Start your day with a visit to the Temples of Karnak. Walk along the Avenue of Sphinx to enter the complex as your guide explains how the massive facade was constructed. On entering the Temples of Karnak you will see each legacy left by the various pharaohs as the complex grew even larger. The deeper you go into the complex, the further back in time you will travel, with the oldest ruins dating back over 3,000 years.

Walking through the Great Court into the Great Hypostyle Hall, it's hard not to be overwhelmed by the 134 columns towering above you like an ancient forest. At the rear of the complex you will find the sacred lake where centuries ago pharaohs and their offerings to the gods were purified. After a tour of the complex, you will have additional free time to explore at leisure.

Continue to Luxor temple which was once joined to the Temples of Karnak by a two-kilometer long Avenue of Sphinx, a portion of which marks the entrance to the temple. Dominated by statues of the great warrior pharaoh Ramses II, Luxor temple has survived Nile floods, foreign invasion and thousands of years exposed to the elements.

A pure Egyptian temple, the inner walls and columns are decorated with intricate hieroglyphics which your guide will help you decipher. Find out how Alexander the Great wrote himself into Luxor temple's history, and see one of the original pair of obelisk, the second of which now stands on the Place de la Concorde in Paris.

This is a private tour allowing you to determine the amount of time spent at each of the temples during the tour.

    You cannot go to Egypt and not see Karnak and Luxor Temples. Hotel pickup went smoothly. I'm not sure it's always the case, but we had a private guide all to ourselves.

    Egypt Tailor Made Tours picked us up from the airport and we dove right into sight seeing! We saw the Luxor East Bank Temples which were beautiful. We did an early morning tour and it was wonderful because the the temples were empty and it was before the heat of the day. They made sure we had plenty of water and snacks for our tour. After the tour they made sure we got checked into our hotel with no issues. We had plenty of time to relax and enjoy the pool for the afternoon. HIGHLY recommend Egypt Tailor Made Tours!!

    Although this is an expensive one day trip, it's worth every dollar. Our guide Hady was fantastic; professional, knowledgable, friendly and a fun companion for the day. We could have never have seen all of this on our own or in a big group tour. We were able to tailor the tour to the specifics of what we wanted to see, and how long we wanted to visit certain sights.
