In the morning, you will be picked up from your hotel in Luxor by an air-conditioned vehicle for a full guided heritage trip of about four hours. First, you will be transported to the Necropolis of Thebes, the Valley of the Kings on the West Bank of Luxor. This ancient necropolis consists of tombs embedded in the mountain Thebes. Here, you visit three tombs of various dynasties. Your Egyptologist tour guide will be on hand to recommend and advise you as to which tombs to visit. After visiting the tombs, you will be transported to the Temple of Ramses III, Medinet Habu. Medinet Habu consists of a palace and a town enclosed within a defensive wall. Entry is through the High Gate, or Migdol, which in appearance resembles a citadel. Afterwards, you will be taken to see the Colossi of Memnon, the two largest ancient statues in Egypt. After touring the sites, you will be transferred back to your hotel.
You will be picked up from your hotel in Luxor in the early morning before sunrise and transferred to the West Bank of Luxor for hot air ballooning. When you arrive, meet your experienced pilot and receive a safety briefing as the crew prepares your brightly colored balloon. Have your camera ready to record the scenery as you sail through the air. As you fly, your pilot describes the sights and identify hidden gems and points of interest. You will enjoy an amazing hot air balloon ride that will show you beautiful views of Luxor from above. Drifting peacefully over the West Bank, you will be able to see most of the ancient monuments of Thebes.

After breakfast, you will be picked up for a full guided trip of about four hours to Karnak in the East Bank of Luxor. Karnak is a complex of temples built in different reigns, starting with the Avenue of Sphinxes, the Hypostyle, the Obelisks of Queen Hatshepsut Temple of Amon adorned with lotus and papyrus designs and the Granite Scarbeus of Amenophis III. Karnak beats every other pharaonic monument as it is simply one of the most beautiful ancient monuments in Egypt. After Karnak, you will be brought to Luxor Temple, which is dedicated to the Theben Triad of Amun-Ra, Mut and Khonsu. There you will see the granite statues of Ramses the Great. These ancient temples are a must-see for Luxor travelers.
