Located in southern Egypt, present-day Luxor was the site of the ancient city of Thebes, the great capital of Egypt during the New Kingdom. Originally a town, Thebes grew into a thriving city that was a centre for wisdom, art, religion and politics, all to be experienced on Egypt tours. 

Modern-day Luxor offers an interesting combination of past and present trips to Egypt. The city can be divided into three parts: the modern city centre with restaurants, cafes and busy bazaars, the village of Karnak to the north and then the ancient remains of Thebes on the west bank of the Nile. The city has often been referred to as “the world’s greatest open-air museum” as the ruins of ancient temple complexes of Karnak and Luxor are found within the city on Luxor tours.

These ancient complexes are what have made Luxor an increasingly popular destination for tourists on Egypt tours. The Temple of Luxor was built by Amenophis III in 1400 BC and sits on the east bank of the Nile. The world-famous Valley of the Kings is the spot where for nearly 500 years (from the 16th-11th centuries BC) tombs were built for Pharaohs and powerful nobles while the Valley of the Queens was constructed in a similar vein, housing the remains of the wives of Pharaohs as well as their children. These are some of the main reasons people visit Egypt, to step back in time and to explore this ancient civilization.
