About the tour

We are going to take a trip back in time and visit the house of Howard Carter, the man responsible for finding the boy King Tutankhamun! While taking a tour of this amazing piece of history I will tell you his story of how he came to find the boy King and what happened to him and the mystery surrounding his death! This tour will give you a chance to look closer at the life of this man, how he lived his day-to-day.

What to expect

Get ready for something special. We're travelling to Luxor with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you'll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing guide.

The tour will last about 45 mins and will be live-streamed by your guide directly from Luxor. Forget about slideshows or pre-recorded videos, this is a live broadcast and anything can happen!

While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.
