Egypt short breaks would commonly include spending a couple of nights in Cairo. The visits of the guests usually consist of the classical highlights of Cairo like the Pyramids of Giza, the Egyptian Museum, Saladin Citadel, Khan El Khalili, and Saqqara.
Afterwards, they would travel to Luxor to spend a couple of nights as well. There are two ways to reach Luxor from Cairo; to use airlines which takes less than an hour, or to go on a sleeper train which is much cheaper.
The monuments included in a short break in Egypt to Cairo and Luxor would include a day dedicated to the East Bank with the Karnak and Luxor Temples being the main highlights. The other day would be for the West Bank with many mortuary temples and ancient necropolis like the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut.
