Spend an afternoon with your Egyptologist guide on a private tour exploring the East Bank of Luxor to see two of the most impressive temples in Upper Egypt: Karnak Temple and Luxor Temples. Start your day with a visit to the Temples of Karnak. Walk along the Avenue of Sphinx to enter the complex as your guide explains how the massive facade was constructed. On entering the Temples of Karnak, you will see each legacy left by the various pharaohs as the complex grew even more significant. The deeper you go into the complex, the further back in time you will travel, with the oldest ruins dating back over 3,000 years. You can listen to the history of the Karnak temple through sound and light shows in Karnak Temple. Walking through the Great Court into the Great Hypostyle Hall, it's hard not to be overwhelmed by the 134 columns above you like an ancient forest. At the rear of the complex, you will find the sacred lake where pharaohs and their offerings to the gods were purified centuries ago. After a tour of the complex, you will have additional free time in your Egypt day tours to explore at leisure.

Continue to Luxor Temple, which was once joined to the Temples of Karnak by a 2-kilometer-long Avenue of Sphinx, a portion of which marks the entrance to the temple. Dominated by statues of the great warrior pharaoh Ramses II, Luxor Temple has survived Nile floods, foreign invasion, and thousands of years exposed to the elements. A pure Egyptian temple, the inner walls, and columns are decorated with intricate hieroglyphics, which your guide will help you decipher.

Please find out how Alexander the Great wrote himself into Luxor Temple's history and see one of the original pair of obelisks, the second of which now stands on the Place de la Concorde in Paris. This private Luxor tour allows you to determine the amount of time spent at each of the temples during the tour.
