Our Tours

Nile & Village Tour – 1 Hour: this is a ride alongside the Nile and through the local villages and palm trees. You will see the water-buffalo bathing in the river and the local women making sun bread outside their houses. This as a perfect opportunity to observe the wild life and get a true feeling for the Egyptian way of life.

Countryside & Habu Temple Ride – 2 Hour: this trip is through the banana fields and the sugar cane and along the canals. See the farmers tilling their fields the same way as their forefathers in the time of the Pharoahs. Take the opportunity to observe the beautiful wild-life, the egrets, green bea-eaters and king fishers. You might even spot a mongoose! A lovely rural ride with the magnificent Mount Thebes in the distance. This ride may take you past the statues of Memnon and into the desert past Habu Temple.

Desert Sunset Experience – 3 Hour: a more adventurous trip, but again suitable for all types of rider. This trip will take you through fields into the desert. Visit the monastery at the foot of Mount Thebes and pass the ruins of the Palace of Malqata. On your left you will see the French archaeological dig house and pass the Amenhotep 3 lake. Enjoy the tranquility away from the tourist crowds. Imagine a spectacular sunset in the desert from the top of a sand-dune.

Mountain Ride – 4 Hour: this trip will take you from the stables through the tranquil banana and sugar cane fields,  through  villages of ancient mud-brick houses up to Mount Thebes. From here you will find the panoramic view of Luxor and the West Bank truly breath-taking. You will return through the small town of New Gurna, past the delightful temple of Seti 1 and back through the fields to the stables.
