Standing sentinel on a bend in the Nile, this temple complex is dedicated to two gods, Horus the falcon god and Sobek the crocodile god. Honouring Sobek, you’ll find mummified crocodiles amidst the other ancient artefacts.
Luxor at First Light
Luxor at First Light
Luxor’s ancient temples and monuments are incredible at any time, explored any way. But there is a certain magic to floating over this landscape by hot air balloon as the sun lights up the open air museum below.

What our clients are saying about their journeys through Egypt


“Fabulous Egypt tour”
Chris - NSW, Australia Mar 2019
I booked my Bunnik tour (Egypt in Depth) through Global Journeys. The process was clear, simple and reassuringly efficient. I had always wanted to visit Egypt and the trip was everything that I could hope for. I visited in March - April and the weather was warm and sunny each day but cool in the early mornings and evenings. The tour guide made the trip; he was so knowledgeable and organised. The itinerary covered all the highlights of Egypt, accommodation was wonderful, including the Nile River ...read more

“Great tour director”
Michael & Julie - QLD, Australia Mar 2019
Ramadan was simply an excellent tour leader. His knowledge of hieroglyphics, history and all-things Egyptian was great and he imparted this in a clear, friendly and professional way. He highlighted the most important things we were viewing and experiencing during this jam packed tour. The hotels and river boat were all great; very comfortable, good food choices and helpful workers. We have travelled to nearly 80 countries and also visited Cairo before but this tour clearly ranked amongst the ...read more

“A dream holiday come true”
Kath & Jean de Gaye - WA, Australia Mar 2019
We had an amazing dream holiday come true. We loved it. Our Cairo Host Mohammed was simply amazing. He greeted us and covered all of what our schedule entailed. Top marks! Our first guide Hany Atta (land component), was exceptional, he was warm in his greeting, and made us feel welcome and safe. Abdullah the driver could not have been more courteous and accommodating, even to the point of picking up our amazing falafel sandwiches (gobsmacking). Our tour of the museum with Hany was truly informative ...read more

“Leisurely cruise along the Nile”
Bob & Susan - NSW, Australia Feb 2019
Well organised trip with terrific tour guides (all seemed to be named Mohamed). Accommodation in Cairo and on the boat (River Tosca) was excellent. We saw numerous temples and other historical sites and artifacts. Two other highlights were the balloon ride (optional extra) and the chaotic Cairo traffic during the transfer to the airport by a very skilled Spring Tours driver.
