Ask anyone who has visited Egypt the best destinations, and you will always hear that Luxor is near the top of the list, if not the best location. Located in southern Egypt on the Nile River, Luxor is near the Valley of the Kings, which is home to the well-known Egyptian tomb attractions of Nefertari and Tutankhamun. It’s a great boat ride from Cairo and offers a glimpse into the glory, and important use of the Nile river. Luxor also has the monuments of Colossi of Memnon, Rames III and Karnak.
