We only had one day to explore Luxor, Egypt, so even though we barely slept on the overnight train from Cairo, we went out at 7:00 A.M. to be the first and only tourists at the incredible Luxor Temple! It was totally worth it because it wasn’t too hot yet and we took all the videos and photos we wanted with NO other people! Once the first tour bus arrived, we headed back to our hotel and had breakfast (AND COFFEE), but then decided to nap for few hours to wait out the mid day heat before heading to the Valley of the Kings via a $0.10 ferry and $7 taxi. Once again, we felt like there should have been way more tourists than there was, but we weren’t complaining!

Originally from Nashville, Tennessee, we got married June 2013 and quickly caught the travel bug! We started “travel hacking” and taking more trips together and finally decided we wanted to travel for one year. After 2 years of saving $ and travel hacking over 2 million miles and points, we sold our cars and apartment and left home January 10, 2016. We started this YouTube channel to share our experiences with friends and family, then decided we really liked vlogging and traveling. So we extended our 1 year trip to THREE years 🙂 Now we have a goal of traveling to 100 countries before Nate turns 30 (which is March 20, 2019)! We are incredibly thankful to do something we love every day. 🙂

    When did you visited this temple? I was there last week and temple facade whole day was in shadow. I wonder why your video has Luxor temple facade is lightened up.

    Nice video but you forgot to mention that is FORBIDDEN to take pictures inside the tombs… you even went to parts that tourists are not allowed… ☹ Can you imagine if every tourist do the same as you did? The tombs certainly will be damaged…

    you two just seriously have no respect for anything it seems… you just post for the views and the money and the free accommodations that come with being a travel blogger. You take no interest in the vast history.. it's just so irritating to watch

    Plenty comments, but I'll respond to a few..
    -Good "finger snapping" music. Simular to GTA Vice City.
    -Cool to have some to yourself.. That's what I'd prefer..
    -I'd love to go, but I've heard of the infamous panhandling there.. Throat chops delivered..
    -113d (or whatever) heat, that's jacket weather here in Phoenix..

    This is so weird … I just arrived here in Luxor (by train as well but from Aswan). I started watching this video and just realized I'm staying in the same hotel (Nefertiti) … 🙂 You guys are awesome, I always learn something. Time to explore the Luxor Temple now. Cheers.

    What did you mean by "here they 'took' our stabilizer" (at 00:10:43)? Who took it? Why would it have been an issue? What exactly did they tell you? What did you say? Where was it kept while you were tomb visiting? Did they give you a receipt? Were you worried it might not be there when you went to retrieve it? Did you offer any money to keep it with you? Did you mention that you had no problem using it at Luxor Temple?

    Same questions about your microphone while at Giza. Who approached you? What did they say? What did you say? Where was your mic kept while you were touring? Did you offer any money to keep it with you? Where exactly at Giza did this occur?

    I'm only asking these very pointed questions because I too will be gimballing it everywhere you went, with the same a6500 as my primary camera, on a Moza AirCross, with a variety of lenses. I'd like to anticipate (and if possible figure out how to address any problems) before I get there (this year).

    Finally, did anyone give you a hard time about carrying more than one lens (assuming you did and it was obvious).

    Hey guys- thanks for sharing I shall be visiting this city sometime this year! I’m absolutely smitten 🥰. I will be sure to bring or do something that contributes to the locals as it is them who suffer when we don’t visit as tourist.🤗🙏🏿 🗺
