Discover the greatness of the ancient Pharaohs by visiting their legendary temples in Luxor. Start your tour moving from your hotel in Cairo in the early morning towards Cairo Airport taking the flight towards Luxor. Upon arrival at Luxor, you will be met, by our representative, then have a blissful day tour kicking off at Karnak Temple; the greatest example of worship in history, dedicated to the God Amon, his wife Mut, and their son Khonsu.

Then pay a visit to the Valley of The Kings, which contains the masterpieces of ancient Egyptian tombs. Then move on to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the only pharaonic woman who reigned ancient Egypt. Moreover, lunch is going to be served during your trip. In the evening, you will be driven to Luxor airport & back to Cairo.

NB: Your tour will end around 4:00 PM  and your flight back to Cairo is at 10:00 PM. To fill the time before your flight, we will book you a hotel room free of charge where you can relax. If you would rather fill the time with additional activities your guide will be happy to make it happen for an extra cost.

 i took a day tour from cairo to luxor for our family of four (my son 10 and daughter 18). it sounds a lot and it is but is doable. the trip starts with being picked up from your hotel at 5 am. the trip to the airport from a downtown hotel at this hr last 30-35 min. the tour people help you get your boarding pass ( we got passes for both ways at this time ) and you go to the gates. the flight takes 1 hr approx . you are received at the gate by people carrying the memphis tour placards and you are taken to a comfortable relatively new van. we picked up our guide on the way and drove to valley of the kings ( at present 65 tombs of the middle and new kingdom pharoes have been found. they rotate the tombs that can be seen keeping about 11 open at a time. ) we saw 3 as suggested by our guide. great wall hieroglyphics 
we went to the temple of hatsheput next. a real great site and the setting on the base of the cliffs is a site worth seeing. even in winter the open space was warm so in the summer this must be an oven!. 
we drove to a shop with memphis tour connections but were not pressured and did not buy anything. 
we went to lunch at a preset egyptian meal in restaurant called king tut which served all memphis tour meals. the food was average. 
we visited karnak temple and luxor temple next. i cannot say say enough about how great they are. the sites are well maintained and you can truely feel how great these times were almost 4500 yrs ago. 
since we had tome till our flight at 10.30 pm we went to the market place (souk) we bought some silver jewelry and then had dinner at a indian restaurant (average food ). 
at this hour (8 pm) the luxor airport is dead with all shops being closed. the trip back was uneventful with again traffic being better at this hr. 
a few tips about an egypt trip. 
1. it is safe. we walked about and even walked about on tahir square. no issues. 
2. bakshish or asking for tips is rampant and very disturbing after a while.
3. traffic is horrible in cairo . avoid 8-10 am and 4-6 pm as much as possible. luxor is bigger than i thought. from the airport to the valley of the kings is about 30 min. 
4. i used the cheapest black and white cabs frequently. they were everywhere, cheap and with my fingers i was able to signal the price i would pay with no problems. 
5. again visting egypt is a treat with great sites and friendly people. it is safe and at present with no crowds
“great and safe time in egypt”

We are a family of four and travelled to Cairo and Luxor thru Memphis Tours Egypt in April 2013. We were well taken care of and felt safe the entire time. A shout out to our main guy Abdul, our tour guides and drivers including Shaimaa in Luxor. We highly recommend this company.
 
Memphis is the best!!!

我們一行6人因為要去Cairo參加婚禮, 因此決定多請幾天假提前遊埃及. 起初我的朋友透過埃及友人介紹的當地tour agent 連繫了一兩個禮拜, 那agent 在尼羅河遊船的行程還說得不清不楚, 倒是給價錢給得很快. 某天下午透過Tripadvior 我發現Memphis tour有很高的評價, 因此嚐試線上live chat 詢價. Mustafa Ahmed 簡直就是個魔法師, 2個小時之內搞定每個人想要的行程跟機票, 還給了一個非常合理的價格, 比起先前agent 給的平均一人就節省了200多美金.
不要以為便宜沒好貨, 更驚喜的還在後頭!
當我們忐忑不安地飛到Luxor, 來迎接我們的導遊Alaa El Sawy, 我們現在當他是神. 除了來自美國的一對菲律賓老夫妻, 我們一行6人有2人英文能力非常有限, Alaa 英文其實說得非常非常的好, 但是他用了非常簡單的方式讓大家明白埃及的神話故事跟廟宇的圖騰代表,不僅如此, 因為每天Alaa 講故事時8人都要參與; 我們甚至還跟菲律賓老夫婦變成好朋友, 船上一點也不無聊, 大家都非常地開心. 到Aswan 時我們都不想讓他走了...但最多只能留他一塊吃晚餐. 因為Alaa El Sawy, 我們對這家tour 太有信心了!!! 也不想錯過這個美麗的國家任何一個景點, 決定繼續請Memphis tour幫我們安排其他行程.
就像大部分的tour, 在Aswan我們也去了精油工廠. 因為埃及朋友在我們抵Cairo時已經幫我們安排了一個行程, 開羅精油工廠賣的東西是一模一樣可跟Aswan 這家比起來, 那多出來的价差足夠我買開羅-Luxor 來回機票一張了(看倌自己算吧)~
在此強力推薦各位直接跟Memphis 詢價, 請你自己來體驗王牌Alaa El Sawy的講解吧!

Actually we went Cairo for a wedding, not for sightseeing. Since it gonna be a 20 hours trip to fly over Cairo, we decided to spend more time in the Egypt. Our group is a 6-people group, two of us can speak very limited English. At beginning, one of our members spent weeks to email local agent yet the schedule that agent sent us seemed a bit strange; it was different from description of MovenPick's website. As I learnt from Tripadvisor Memphis tour has a word of mouth, I deceided to talk to their operator directly.

It seemed likely that there was a magic wand in operater Mustafa Ahmed's hand; he spent less than 2 hous to arrange tickets, crusie, packages tour...etc. The point is, the price he offered is very reasonable.
The first day we joined a tour that local friend arragened for us, that one was so-so.
The next day we flew to Luxor and met our guide, who now we think he is a "God of guide", Alaa El Sawy. As I mentioned above, two in our group speak very limited English plus the couple from the US joined us, I was a bit worried about my husband and aunty whether they can catch stories.
Alaa speaks perfect English actaully. But he chose very simple and easy ways to explain Gods, stories, myths and history, also made everyone to participate while he was telling myths; plus Nile cruise by MovenPick was great! we all had great time with Alaa. By the end of cruise the US couple didn't want to leave us and we all wished Alaa stayed with us.
By the way, as this country is famous for its essential oil; if you would like to buy essentail oil, buy it in Aswan. I got a TERRIBLE price in a famous shop in Cairo!!!! the price difference is enough to pay a Cairo-Luxor-Cairo flight ticket!!! T____T
