Without a doubt, Luxor is one of the most culturally satisfying places to visit in the world. With a heritage dating as far back as 3000 BC, it is no wonder that the sites and landmarks on Egypt holidays simply blow the minds of hundreds of thousands of holidaymakers.

With so much on offer at the heart of such an striking city, it is sometimes surprising to hear how cheap Egypt holidays in Luxor can be. Package holiday deals from low cost holiday websites can really take the pricey punch out of your north African escape.

The question when you take the trip of a lifetime to Luxor, is quite simply, where to start? With such a vast range of temples, monuments, tombs and museums, it seems that fitting everything in can be an unrealistic, but enticing, challenge.

While you are free to wander through the many sites solo, it is advisable to book guided tours through the areas. The wealth of information that can be gathered from experts in local history is worth every penny of the price you will pay.

Travelling so far to experience authentic Ancient Egypt would be wasted without informed and conversant input.

Luxor Museum is an excellent place to begin your explorations. Open daily, here you can find key information on the background of Luxor sites as well as a magnificent display of artefacts and monuments.

Other sites of interest during your stay which are well worth a visit include the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Nobles, the Tomb of Ramses VI, the Temple of Hatshepsut, Luxor Temple and the Temple of Karnak.

With so much to do in and around Luxor, package holiday deals can help to keep Egypt holidays as cost efficient as possible. Book your break through a discounted holiday website today.
