Today there is free time to kick back and relax and later in the evening there will be an optional excursion to the Temple of Luxor. Already impressive during day light, the temple takes on a magically glow after dark as it becomes illuminated by a thousand coloured lights (book and pay locally).

You can opt to float over Luxor in a hot air balloon first thing this morning before we visit Luxor’s famous West Bank.

First stop will be at the Colossi of Memnon, a towering pair of statues that are all that remain of temple of Amenophis III. Touring will continue in the Valley of the Kings and on to the Valley of the Queens, the site of the imposing colonnaded temple of Queen Hatshepsut.

Crossing back over to East Bank we will return to our hotel for some free time before heading to Karnak.

Days 6 - 8: Red Sea Relaxation
Once a small fishing village, Hurghada is now one of the most popular Red Sea resorts attracting visitors with its superb diving and pristine beaches. The best reefs are found offshore and can be explored with boat trips to the uninhabited Giftun Islands or onboard the Sunbad Submarine. Hotels and expanded infrastructure provide holidaymakers with excellent aquatic facilities for sail boarding, yachting, deep-sea fishing, SCUBA diving and snorkeling. Just outside of the resort town is an ancient Roman quarry called Mons Porphyritis and Port Safarga – a famously windy place which is ideal for windsurfing.

The next three days are free for you and your family to explore Hurghada or simply relax by the beach. On day 6 there will be an optional day trip to the Giftun Islands for swimming and snorkelling, which can be booked locally. Overnight - Hurghada (B:3)
