Itinerary

Tour Program

Private Luxor Tour by car or van 


from your holiday destination El Gouna, starts with the pick-up from your accommodation. In the early morning, we start our El Gouna Luxor trip to probably the largest open air museum in the world. Enjoy the ride in a small group through the mountain scenery on the edge of the Red Sea while we make our way to Luxor. 

After arriving in Luxor we first visit the impressive 

Karnak Temple 


Probably the largest temple complex worldwide, he’s located on the Luxor East Bank and consists of small temples, chapels and the holy lake. The Sphinx Alley at the entrance forms the end of a long processional path. This path was formerly the connection between the Luxor Temple and the Karnak Temple. After years of excavation work, the Luxor Sphinx Avenue has been restored.  

Entering the Karnak Temple you are first in a huge columned Hall. It’s still a mystery how these massive structures were built in the time of the pharaohs in ancient Egypt. Use the light-flooded columned hall with ist large statues for some impressive photos before we go further inside the temple complex. Don’t hesitate to ask questions! Our Egyptologist will be happy to explain the history of the temple to you. At the outdoor area of the Karnak Temple we will visit the Karnak sacred lake which was used by pharaohs in ancient Egypt for ablution ceremonies.  

We leave the Karnak Temple and visit the neighbouring 

Luxor Temple  


Known as “Coronation Temple”, the Luxor Temple is located on the beautiful bank promenade of the Nile and forms an impressive entrance to Luxor City.  

Alexander the Great rebuilt the Luxor Temple, built under Ramses II and Amenophis, into a fortress. Later 4 churches are added to the site, of which only one has survived to this day. Like the Karnak Temple, the Luxor Temple was built by several rulers. Inside the temple we visit the shrine before making our way to Luxor West Bank but not without enjoying the wonderful view of the other Nile bank from Luxor East Bank 

Get to know the traditional kitchen in Luxor! Arrived at the Luxor West Bank, we visit a traditional restaurant at the foot of the mountains for our lunch break. After lunch, we make our way to the last stop of our private Luxor Tour, the Habu Temple 

Habu Temple 


One of the best-preserved temples is the Habu Temple, whose reliefs tell the story of the victories of his builder Ramses III. The story also talks about the first strike in the history of work, which took place during its construction period, as the workers of Deir el-Medina stopped work cause of the bad work conditions.  

A church was built inside the Habu Temple during Christian time. With some residential houses in other parts, the temple complex functioned as a city wall. To restore the temple complex to its original state, the residential buildings were removed in 1859 and the remains of the church in 1891. During your visit, you will see that the excavations are still in the process to reconstruct the Habu Temple. 

On our Day Tour Luxor, you will discover the different historical stories of the Karnak Temple, the Luxor Temple and the Habu Temple. All of this in the relaxed atmosphere of a Private Luxor Tour with Sempre Travel Egypt. We leave the Luxor West Bank for our drive back to your accommodation in El Gouna and hope you have captured some of the best impressions of this El Gouna Luxor trip with your camera.
