The journey begins with the pick-up service from your hotel with the air-conditioned private vehicle to drive from Hurghada to Luxor via three hours drive through the eastern desert of Egypt.
Upon your arrival in Luxor, you will be escorted by your Egyptologist to visit the famous Karnak Temple complex. An amazing achievement of ancient Egyptian architecture. The Karnak complex consists of three temples and the construction took several generations.
The centerpiece is undoubtedly the Temple of Amun-Ra, the largest extant column-supported temple in the world, though the Hypostyle Hall, with its 134 freestanding columns, is also world-famous, setting the stage for several Hollywood films. The Karnak Temple is one of the largest ancient religious buildings that have ever existed and one of the most famous tourist attractions in Egypt. The Luxor Temple is designed differently. A special feature of this temple is that it was not built in the name of a god, a deity or a king. It was actually built in honor of royalty. According to some scholars, this is the place where a large number of Egyptian pharaohs were crowned.
Thebes (the name Luxors in ancient times) is often referred to as the largest and largest open-air museum in the world. Cross the Nile to the West Bank and drive through lush farmland and sugar cane plantations to the edge of the desert, where you will find the tombs of the Pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings. Deep in the mountains, the tombs in the Valley of the Kings were full of indescribable treasures and are covered with beautiful painted hieroglyphs depicting the life of the king, such as the tomb of King Tuthmosis I, the tomb of Tuthmosis III, King Tutankhamon, king Ramesses VI, King Merenptah and Amonhotep II.
The tour does not end here, you will also visit the Hatshepsut Temple on the west bank of the Nile. The Temple of Hatshepsut was built in honor of the well-known, single female Pharaoh, Hatshepsut. This temple marks the entrance to the next town, the Valley of the Kings.
You will have lunch at a local restaurant in Luxor.
Next, to these sights, visit the Colossi of Memnon. The Colossi consists of 2 giant statues of the late Pharaoh Amenhotep III. It is believed that these statues are more than 3400 years old.
