We will take you to Luxor right from your hotel by a comfortable air-contitioned bus. First you will visit Karnak Temple, the largest place of worship ever built. Its ancient name ipet-isut means ‘the most sacred place’. The temple complex was being built over 2000 years by generations of pharaohs. The great “Hypo-style Hall” is an incredible forest of gain pillars.
After having lunch at a restaurant on the Nile, you will see Luxor Temple, surrounded by a number of other buildings, including the Temple of Isis and Ptolemaic Temple, one of the best preserved monuments in Egypt.
You will also have a chance to see the Roman birth houses and a famous coptic church. Then the tour will take you to the museum with a fabulous collection of ancient treasures founded in Luxor. After that we will check you in at a 4-star hotel in Luxor, where you will have your dinner and some free time.
After breakfast we will cross the Nile River to the west bank, where you will visit the mortuary temples and tomb complex at Deir el-Bahari necropolis of Theban. At the Valley of Kings, you will have a brief stop at the visitors centre. Guides are not permitted inside the tombs, but your guide will tell you what to look at inside the elaborately decorated rooms. There you will visit 3 tombs; for an additional cost you can visit the small tomb of Tutankhamun as well as the tomb of Ramses VI.
After we leave the Valley of Kings, you will take lunch at a restaurant on the Nile and some rest. Then we will take you to the Temple of Hatshepsut, one of the most striking monuments of Ancient Egypt. Your guide will introduce you to the history of the temple and tell the story of Queen Hatshepsut. There will be some free time to explore the temple, walk through the large courtyards and admire the hieroglyphic decorations.
On returning to Luxor, we will briefly stop at the Colossi of Memnon for you to take some photos, after which we will start our way from Luxor back to Hurghada.
