Oasis tours and desert trips from Luxor

You may choose between short trips and tours lasting several days or a couple of weeks. If you have just 3 days at your disposal we recommend a desert trip to the Oasis of Kharga in the Western Desert. Kharga is famous for its impressive sights, most Roman. Also for a retreat the desert is an ideal place.

Trips from Luxor to Abu Simbel

The twin temples at Abu Simbel were originally carved out of the mountainside during the reign of Pharaoh Ramses II in the 13th century BC, as a lasting monument to himself and his queen Nefertari. The complex was relocated in its entirety in the 1960s to avoid its being submerged during the creation of Lake Nasser.
En route to Abu Simbel you should take your time to visit the Temple of Horus at Edfu and the dual Temples of Sobek and Haroeris at Kom Ombo.

Trips from Luxor to El-Kab und Esna

Although Elkab and Esna are located on different banks of the River Nile the two sites can be perfectly combined for a day trip. In El-Kab, at the mouth of Wadi Hilal, rock-cut tombs and small temples are worth to visit. Remarkable are also the rock inscriptions which can be seen on the way between the temples. In Esna, there is Egypt's youngest temple with an impressive portico.
