    Egypt is considered the oldest travel destination on globe. In a land where the past sits overlooking the present, Egypt is a country that fills the senses. Egypt is a land with well-defined boundaries. To the east and west are vast deserts. To the north is the Mediterranean sea. To the south is the land of Nubia.

    Egypt has amassed approximately 7000 years of history and civilization; but besides its breathtaking Pharaonic and other ancient attractions, Egypt also currently possesses unique cultures, traditions, food, people and, exciting activities. For centuries, tourists have flocked to Egypt to admire its ancient pyramids and temples. The country also has its fair share of natural wonders. The River Nile is the longest in the world, and the Red Sea coast is a playground for resort-style relaxation and adventurous watersports.

    What are the best tours in Luxor?

    How many days do you need in Luxor?

    Luxor requires a minimum of 3 days. There is so much to see and do so you will be on the go the whole time. I’d say the minimum time needed to visit Luxor is two days, but you can easily spend longer as there are so many sites, and it’s worth taking the time to enjoy the atmosphere.

    How do you get to Luxor?

    Egypt Air flies four times daily direct to Luxor International Airport from Cairo International Airport. Flights take one hour, and ticket prices start at around US$145 in the high season from December to February. If you’re traveling in low season, flight prices often drop.

    Is Luxor worth visiting?

    Luxor and Cairo are exceedingly different places and yes Luxor is well worth visiting. This, however, doesn’t mean you have to do it. If you want to see iconic sites such as the Valley of the King’s and Karnak Temple (to name just two of the many sites in and around Luxor), then you have no choice.
