This trip runs every day.
Whereas Cairo has the great pyramids, Luxor’s most spectacular site is arguably the Valley of Kings. This is where for the kings of the New Kingdom were buried for nearly 500 years in great tombs constructed especially for them along with their treasures to take with them to the afterlife. The tombs were decorated with amazing scenes from Egyptian mythology and give clues to the beliefs and funerary rituals of the period.
As well as the Valley of the Kings, our excursion to Luxor will also take you to see spectacular temples such as the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, which is considered one of the “incomparable monuments of ancient Egypt”.
We will pick up from your hotel in the early morning (approx 5am) and drive you to Luxor where you will be met by our English speaking tour guide who will join you during your day tour in Luxor. We pride ourselves on our fantastic guides, which are all very friendly and knowledgeable, just read through our reviews to see what people have said about them.
Valley of the Kings
You will start the tour of Luxor by crossing over to the West Bank to visit the Valley of Kings where for a period of nearly 500 years from the 16th to 11th century BC, amazing tombs were constructed for the Pharaohs and powerful nobles of the New Kingdom of Egypt. The valley is known to contain 63 tombs and chambers ranging in size from a simple pit to a complex tomb with over 120 chambers.
Temple of Queen Hatshepsut
Widely considered one of the “incomparable monuments of ancient Egypt“, the Mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut is located beneath the cliffs at Deir el Bahari on the west bank of the Nile near the Valley of the Kings.
Colossi of Memnon and the Alabaster Institute
The Colossi of Memnon are two massive stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III. For the past 3400 years they have stood in the Theban necropolis, across the River Nile from the modern city of Luxor. The 2 massive structures always leave our guests asking our tour guides the same question – how did they do it?
Then back to the East Bank to fresh up and have lunch and visit Karnak and Luxor temple followed by a visit to the perfume shop.
After an amazing day in Luxor you will then be driven back to your hotel (approx 9.30pm)
