Certainly! If you’re planning a private day trip to Luxor from Hurghada, here’s an itinerary that includes the key highlights you mentioned:

  1. Departure from Hurghada:
    • Your day begins early, around 5:00 am. You’ll be picked up from your hotel in Hurghada and transferred by a private air-conditioned vehicle to Luxor. The road trip takes approximately 4 hours.
  2. Arriving in Luxor – City of the Living:
    • Karnak Temple: Your first stop will be at the impressive Karnak Temple. This temple complex is not only beautiful but also rich in Egyptian history. The ruins cover over 100 hectares and date back to the 12th Dynasty of Ancient Egypt (early 2nd millennium BC). Karnak Temple consists of three walled areas: the district of Amun, the district of Mont, and the district of Mut. The Temple of Amun-Re, with its monumental pylons, is a sacred building representing the entrance area to the temple and tomb.
    • Sacred Lake and Scarab Beetle: While at Karnak Temple, you’ll also visit the Sacred Lake and see the scarab beetle, a symbol of rebirth and transformation.
  3. Crossing the Nile by Boat:
    • After exploring Karnak Temple, you’ll cross the Nile River by boat then you’ll enjoy lunch at a good local restaurant. This meal is included in the price of your Luxor day trip from Hurghada.
  4. Valley of the Kings:
    • Against the backdrop of the rugged mountains of Thebes and the surrounding desert, the Valley of the Kings was built on the western side of the Nile. This area includes tombs and temples of incomparable magnificence, constructed to honor the memory of deceased kings and queens. The Valley of the Kings is legendary worldwide, especially since the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb.
  5. Temple of Hatshepsut:
    • Visit the Temple of Hatshepsut, also known as the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut. This temple stands out with its idiosyncratic architecture and is dedicated to the female pharaoh Hatshepsut. Explore its impressive terraces and colonnades.
  6. Colossi of Memnon:
    • Your next stop will be at the Colossi of Memnon, two giant statues of Amenhotep III. These massive stone figures guard the entrance to the pharaoh’s mortuary temple.

Remember that this private day trip allows you to explore some of Egypt’s most cherished ancient sites while enjoying personalized attention from your Egyptologist guide.
