Most will choose to head inland to the banks of one of the world’s longest and most storied rivers - where the immense treasures of Ancient Egypt loom in the desert's haze. Modern Luxor rests beside the Nile, and is set amid an unparalleled archaeological site of swirling legend and ancient beauty. This vast, open-air museum sprawls out below the burning sun, and you'll discover preserved ancient tombs, momentous statues like the Colossi of Memnon, and vast columned temples with rows of statues, such as the Temple of Karnak. Soak in the surroundings on boats, which meander up and down the river, or head out to tick off as many of the remarkable ruins as you can. Cultural treasures like the World Heritage Site listed Valley of the Kings – carved into the copper rock of the desert – provided elaborate resting places for Ancient Egypt's revered Pharaohs. Built between the 16th and 11th centuries BC, no fewer than 63 temples have been discovered here so far. Head into incredibly preserved tombs, decorated with majestic and mystical symbols and colourful artworks. See famous sites like the cursed tomb of King Tutankhamun, and the imposing rise of Queen Hatshepsut's temple, amid the countless highlights and wonders.

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 3.5-hour drive to Luxor City. Upon arrival, head for a visit to the Temple of Karnak, the largest manmade religious complex ever built.

Renowned for its lavish décor and colours, the Queen Nefertari Tomb is the most beautiful and exclusive tomb in all of Egypt.

Your tour continues with a stop at the Valley of the Kings. Here, visit the Seti I Tomb, which is the largest and most beautiful tomb in the valley, and adorned with beautiful paintings. A visit is then made to the famous tomb of King Tutankhamen. Time-permitting, a brief stop is made at one or two other tombs in the area before embarking the boat for the cruise back to the East Bank. Following a stop for afternoon tea by the Nile, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 3.5-hour drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves an extensive amount of walking for 0.87 miles (about 1.4 kilometres), at times over uneven and sandy surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, and at the entrance to the Karnak Temple, Queen Nefertari Tomb and tombs inside the Valley of the Kings. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilize a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe and soft-soled walking shoes, and bring sun protection and a light jacket or sweater from the ship.

Luxor & Valley of the Kings

Discover the ancient treasures of Egypt during this scenic and memorable, full-day excursion to Luxor.


Luxor Temple

Depart the pier for the approximate 3.5 to 4 hour drive to Luxor. Upon arrival, your first stop is at the spectacular Luxor Temple. The original temple complex was built during the New Kingdom on the site of an older sanctuary. Over the centuries, various rulers made additions that included statues, chapels, a colonnade and a sun court. Ramses II added a statue of himself and a pair of 82-foot (25-metre) obelisks; one of them was taken to Paris in 1835, and today stands in the Place de la Concorde.


Lunch and the Valley of the Kings

Next, re-board your coach and proceed for a buffet lunch at a 5-star deluxe Hotel. After lunch, drive across the Nile to the West Bank for a visit to the Valley of the Kings. During a period of 500 years from the 16th to 11th century B.C., tombs were constructed in this Theban Necropolis for the kings and powerful nobles of the New Kingdom.


The 'wadi' consists of two valleys, the East Valley, where the bulk of the royal tombs are situated, and the West Valley. To date, 63 tombs have been discovered, with chambers ranging in size from a simple pit to a complex tomb with over 120 chambers. Most of the tombs were cut into the limestone, and took six years to complete, depending upon their size. The most notable tomb discovered in the valley is that of King Tutankhamun, as it includes a display of the young king's mummified body. A visit to King Tutankhamun's tomb is not included but can be arranged in advance.


Queen Hatshepsut Temple

Following your visit, a photo stop is made at the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut, which is dramatically perched at the head of a valley overshadowed by the peak of the Thebes. Queen Hatshepsut was the fifth pharaoh of the 18th dynasty of Ancient Egypt. Egyptologists generally regard her as one of the most successful pharaohs, reigning longer than any other woman of an indigenous Egyptian dynasty.


Colossi of Memnon

A final photo stop is made at the Colossi of Memnon, a pair of colossal statues standing alone in a farmer's field. The statues are all that remains of the Temple of Amenhotep III. From here, drive back across the Nile to the East Bank and enjoy an afternoon tea at a 5 stars deluxe restaurant, then commence the approximately 3.5 to 4 hour drive back to the pier.

Red Sea Snorkelling

This area of the Red Sea is known as one of the best snorkelling spots in the world. Enjoy the opportunity to snorkel among colorful tropical fish and intricate coral formations on this half-day excursion.


Departing from the pier, it is a short drive to the motorboat, where you embark for a journey to discover the underwater marine life of the Red Sea.


After donning a mask and snorkel, enter the water and snorkel amid the marine life. Underwater sightings may include blue-spotted stingrays, grouper, and other rainbow-collared species.


Following this snorkeling adventure, re-board the motorboat and return ashore for the short drive back to the ship.
