Excursion Details

To make this visit, you 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, 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.
