Luxor Nile Cruise Tours

Early morning you will head to the heart of the Theban necropolis - the West Bank of Luxor. Pharaonic tombs, mortuary temples and colossal statues are all there for you to enjoy and explore. Valley of the Kings with tombs built for pharaohs of the New Kingdom and the famous Tutankhamen’s tomb, will be your first sight for the day.
