Visit the Valley of the Kings
The Valley of the Kings is one of the top attractions and is located in the west bank of the Luxor. Although the tombs have suffered rather greatly from various treasure hunters and floods in the more recent years, there is still so much to be seen and discovered throughout this valley. You will be able to see numerous tombs and sights like you have never seen before. This is a great opportunity for both solo and couple travelers along with families with kids interested in history.
Take a Nile River Cruise
You may have heard stories about the Nile River and even seen pictures throughout the years but being able to actually get an up close and personal feel for the actual river is unlike anything else you will experience. Take a river cruise and glide along the waters that you have seen and heard so much about while getting the chance to take in the beautiful sceneries and landscapes along the way.
Head to Elefantine Island
On Elefantine Island, you will find an amazing museum, the Temple of Satet, a huge Nilometer and also the Nubian Village. Though many tourists don’t think to head over here, there is so much to do and things to see and explore without all of the large crowds. Take a boat trip over and begin to discover why this should be on the top of your list of things to do while in Luxor and Aswan.
Wander Through the Botanical Gardens
Spend an afternoon sailing over to the Aswan Botanical Garden for a nice, relaxing and peaceful time while in this part of Egypt. Filled to the brim with beautiful and stunning flower and plant species that fill the entire area with a pleasurable and enjoyable aroma unlike any other.
