Early in the morning, our representative will pick you up from your hotel in (Hurghada, Makadi Bay and Safaga) to Luxor by Air-conditioned vehicle to visit the most beautiful temples there.
You will be visiting:
Temple of Karnak – Luxor
Temple of Karnak dates back from around 2055 BC to around 100 AD. It was built as a cult temple and was dedicated to the gods Amun, Mut, and khonsu. You will take a break to refresh yourself with a delicious lunch in a local restaurant, after lunch you will have the chance to enjoy some free leisure time in Luxor for shopping at the papyrus institute or perfumes center. Then board a typical felucca boat to cross the Nile to the hugely impressive on the west bank to visit Hatshepsut Temple, Valley of the Kings and Colossi of Memnon.
Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir El Bahari – Luxor
Hatshepsut was the only female pharaoh in the history of Ancient Egypt. She came to power during the New Kingdom after the death of her father, Tuthmose I, and her half-brother and husband, Tuthmose II, who succeeded her father on the throne. Hatshepsut’s status as the only female to rule Egypt is not the only reason for her fame. She was also a very successful pharaoh. She ruled over an era of peace and prosperity, expanding lucrative trade routes to the land of Punt in the south. This accomplishment is immortalized in the relief carvings at her temple.
Valley of the Kings – Luxor
The Valley of the Kings, also known as the Valley of the Gates of the Kings. Used as a burial chamber for nearly 500 years from the 16th to 11th century BC, the Valley of the Kings was used for royal burials for the Kings, their families, and their possessions. One of the most important tombs found in the Valley of the Kings is the tomb of Pharaoh Tutankhamun and all of his treasures. It is the most famous site for having unique collections of tombs and breathtaking ancient ruins. That location makes it one of the hottest spots for exploring ancient Egyptian history.
Colossi of Memnon – Luxor
One of the biggest tourist attractions in Luxor, the Colossi of Memnon gained its popularity due to its majestic appearance and for the mysterious sounds emitted by the northern colossus statue at every sunrise. It was acting as guardians to the Temple of Amenhotep III. The Colossi of Memnon was meant to protect the Pharaoh’s temple from evil. Even though after the temple was destroyed by a severe earthquake, the Colossi of Memnon remains standing.
