Luxor governorate is unique from its counterparts in Egypt with its flying balloon tourism. You cannot end your visit to Luxor without touring the hot air "flying balloon" in the early hours of the morning to enjoy watching Luxor and the sunrise and seeing the magnificent temples of majestic beauty on the banks of the Nile River.
Feluccas, the traditional sailboats of Egypt's Nile, offer a calm and quiet ride. Enjoy a relaxing felucca ride, as they are perfect for catching the breeze on a hot summer night, for brisker sails the rest of the year, and watching the sunset.
Among the most exciting experiences in Luxor & Aswan is to ride in a Hantour, or traditional Egyptian horse carriage. It is marvelous going on a ride by the Nile, enjoying the scenery of the temples around you and the cool breeze of the evening.
