DAY 3 Arrive in Luxor
Your overnight train arrives into Luxor this morning and the rest of the day is free for you to explore Luxor town. There are several markets to occupy your time (and money!) or you could enjoy a tranquil felucca trip along the Nile. There’s even a Mummification Museum to visit. This evening we enjoy a walking tour of the beautifully preserved Luxor Temple which is stunning when lit up at night.

DAY 4 Luxor. East and West Bank tours
Following breakfast this morning we cross over the Nile to visit the captivating West Bank of Luxor. We tend to start our tour here early in order to avoid the crowds and heat that can occur later in the day. The Valley of the Kings itself remains one of the most important and influential archaeological sites in the world and the dusty tombs in this ancient burial site are still revealing their profound secrets to this day. This afternoon we travel back to the East Bank of Thebes to visit and explore the gigantic temple complex found at Karnak before heading back to the train station for the overnight train back to Cairo.
