About the tour

Come join me while I take you on a tour of what is left of the old Al Qarnah village set in the Theban hillside nestled on top of the tombs! We will take a trip around what is left of this place while I tell you the story of how the relocation came to be. We will meet one family that still lives in this old abandoned Village and drink a tea while taking in the breathtaking views of the village below.

Meet your local guide

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 30 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.

Really interesting tour. Lesley rolled with the sudden change of the village being closed and showed us some very interesting tombs and statues. Can't wait to "travel" with Lesley again.
