You will be picked up by our Egyptology tour guide promptly from your hotel or Nile cruise to begin your memorable day in Luxor, an open-air museum city. Drive across the countryside for 35 to 40 minutes to reach the West Bank.
Visit the Valley of the Kings to begin your exciting day. The New Kingdom pharaohs cut their tombs into the mountains there in an effort to conceal their treasure and safeguard their mummies. As there is no inside guidance for the tombs, your tour guide will explain everything from the outside. Then, from the ones that are open, explore the top 3 tombs. The most known tombs are King Tutmosis I, Tutmosis III, Tut-Ankh-Amon, King Ramssess VI, King Mrenptah, and AmonhotepII.
then we will visit Medinat Habu, which is situated at the southernmost point of the Theban Necropolis and was the site of the first-ever labour movement against their monarch Ramesses III. One of Egypt's best-preserved temples, the Ramesses III memorial temple is enclosed by a sizable mud-brick enclosing wall that may have been fortified.
after that, We will visit the Valley of the Queens, also called Ta-Set-Neferu, or "the land of beauty," where the wives and sons of Pharaohs were interred. There are more than 90 known tombs, each with a sarcophagus chamber, a few small halls, and an entrance corridor. You will see three tombs of the Queens and sons of the Kings like the graves of Amun-her-khepeshef, Seth-her-khopsef, Khaemwaset, and of a Ramesside Queen named Tyti. The earliest may be that of Sitre, wife of Ramses I. The most renowned are those of Nefertari, Ramses II's preferred Queen (extra ticket on spot).
Lunch at a nearby restaurant before concluding your tour of the West Bank with a photo stop in front of the enormous 17-meter-tall statues of Memnon that originally decorated the largest mortuary temple on the west bank of the Bank of Luxor of King Amonhotep III (optional)..
in the end , we will drop you off your hotel or Nile cruise Luxor.
