Get away from the beach for a day and take a soak in the culture of ancient Egypt in Luxor. The tour starts early in the morning where you will head out in an air-conditioned vehicle on a 3-hour journey to Luxor. Once there, you will start by visiting the temples of Luxor and Karnak noted for their majesty and art; It takes just 45 minutes to walk from one temple to the other, and on your way in the tour, you will observe several sphinxes and hear a number of stories about the pharaohs responsible for their construction.
Later on your tour, you will need to cross to the other side of the Nile to visit the famous Necropolis of Thebes, one of the most important symbols of this ancient civilization. Also known as the West Bank of Thebes, this excursion in its shorter version is the most common and compulsory to be made by any visitor to Luxor. In this complex you will find a true archaeological treasure and one of the great wonders of Egypt: The Valley of the Kings, commissioned by the Pharaohs of the dynasties XVIII, XIX and XX and home to the tombs of Tutankhamen and Ramses IV, it is the most spectacular phase of Egyptian funerary architecture. Travelers will then proceed to the Valley of the Artisans, a tribute to those who built the tombs of the Pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings. Next, you will visit Medinet Habu Temple, which is notable for its use of polychromy and is an exemplary piece of architecture from the New Kingdom.
After a short break for lunch, through your tour in Luxor, you will be surprised with an amazing panoramic view of the complex of Deir el-Bahri, which famously features the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut. We will move across this complex to admire the majesty of ancient Egypt from the Temple of Amenhotep III. Here you will observe the Colossi of Memnon, two immense twin statues that remain breathtaking centuries after their creation. Both depict Amenhotep III with his eyes looking east, towards the Nile and sunrise. Around him are two smaller figures symbolizing his wife and his mother.
