We took a 2-day excursion to Luxor and Cairo that was fabulous. Be sure to book the excursion well before sailing. This was well worth the $1,000 expense and was very popular. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable, 5 star hotels were utilized for meals and overnight accommodation. It was a whirlwind trip with airfare to Luxor, then back to Cairo included. As well as entry fees to the Valley of the Kings, Luxor and Karnak Temples, Cairo Antiquities Museum, and the pyramids of Giza. Dress code is important to adhere to. Temperatures in Luxor were between 90-105 degrees so dress accordingly. Much cooler at night of course.
