Luxor holidays can only be described as an absolutely fascinating experience, and the city is frequently referred to as the world's greatest open air museum due to the staggering amount of excellently preserved monuments dating back over 4000 years.
Once part of the ancient city of Thebes or the city of a thousand gates, Luxor stands proudly on the east bank of the River Nile and is home to the Temple of Luxor with the imposing Temple of Karnak, which took over a thousand years to build, just to the north. The two temples are linked by a long road called a dromos which is still lined today with breathtaking stone sphinxes. Over on the west bank you will find the amazing Valley of the Queens and equally impressive Valley of the Kings where the iconic Tomb of Tutankhamen can be found.
The Temple of Karnak also hosts a breathtaking sound and light show with an entertaining look at Egyptian history, an unforgettable night out for the whole family. Take a hot air balloon trip at dawn over the west bank of the Nile and see the Valley of the Kings from an amazing angle. The unforgettable sight of the sun rising behind the imposing tombs will stay with you for ever. At the other end of the day, arrange a stunning sunset cruise along the River Nile on a felucca or traditional wooden boat, the romantic scene as the sun fades out of sight is one of the most spectacular you will ever see.
