Day 1
In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel in central Luxor or harbor by an air-conditioned vehicle for a full guided trip of about 7 hours. First you will be transported to the Necropolis of Thebes, the Valley of the Kings on the West Bank of Luxor. This ancient necropolis is a must-see for Luxor travelers. It consists of tombs embedded in the mountain Thebes. Here you visit 3 tombs of various dynasties. Your Egyptologist tour guide will be on hand to recommend and advise you as to which tombs to visit.
After visiting the tombs you will be transported to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the only woman ever to reign over Egypt as pharaoh. Then you visit Valley of the Artisans (Deir el Medina) to see the houses of the workers who worked in the royal tombs. There you will see very colorful tombs. Then, you visit the Temple of Ramses III (Medinat Habu). Medinat Habu consists of a palace and a town enclosed within a defensive wall. Entry is through the High Gate, or Migdol, which in appearance resembles a citadel. Afterwards, you will be taken to see the Colossi of Memnon, the two largest ancient statues in Egypt, which date back to the era of King Amenhotep III. After touring the sites you will be transferred back to your hotel by an air-conditioned vehicle.
At every site you will get information from your Egyptologist tour guide and you will get free time to explore the ancient monuments by yourself.
