Explore the amazing sights of Ancient Egypt in Luxor with transfers to and from Hurghada. After picking you up from your hotel in Hurghada, we will drive to Luxor in an air-conditioned car through lush farmland and sugar plantations to edge of the desert where you will find the tombs of the pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings.
Cutting directly into the mountains, the tombs were filled with treasures and covered in beautifully-painted hieroglyphics depicting the life of the king they housed. Your guide will bring the stories to life as you explore the tombs before continuing to the impressive mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut.
Architecturally stunning, the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut contains beautiful murals on its inner walls. On our return to Luxor’s East Bank, we will visit the Colossi of Memnon – two gigantic statues that stand proudly, yet virtually alone at the entrance to what was Amenhotep III’s mortuary temple.
After lunch, we continue on to visit the famous Karnak Temple – the largest place of worship that was ever built. Its ancient name Ipet-isut means “the most sacred of places.” The temple, or, more correctly, the complex of temples, was built more than two thousand years ago by generation after generation of pharaohs. Within the complex, the great “Hypostyle Hall” is an incredible forest of giant pillars.
