We will start with the Luxor east bank tour. visit the Luxor temple and Karnak temple, two of the most impressive temples in Egypt. The Luxor temple is located on the west bank of Luxor and was dedicated to the goddess Sekhmet. It is also known as the “Temple of Millions of Years” because it was built during the reigns of three pharaohs: Amenhotep III, Amenhotep IV (Akhenaten), and Ramses II.
The Karnak temple is one of the largest religious complexes in Egypt and dates back to the Middle Kingdom era (2040–1786 BC), containing more than 3,000 rooms and 100 shrines. It was originally built by King Amenhotep III as a sacred place for his sun god Aten, but it changed hands during its long history and has been used by many different pharaohs for worshiping other deities as well.
After lunch, we will head to the Luxor west bank tour. Let's start with the Valley of the Kings. The name comes from the fact that it contains over 60 tombs for kings and nobles throughout Egyptian history. In fact, it's estimated that more than 60% of all known royal tombs were built here! The tombs were intended to protect their occupants after death and they did just that: not one tomb has been found intact by archaeologists. But what they did find were beautiful wall paintings and carvings on stone, as well as gold jewelry, statues, and other precious goods.
Next up is Hatshepsut's Temple at Deir el-Bahari. This temple was built during the reign of Queen Hatshepsut, who was one of only two women ever to rule Egypt as a Pharaoh—and she ruled for longer than any other woman in Egyptian history! She was a very prominent ruler who expanded trade routes throughout much of Africa and Asia, but she is also remembered for her great architectural achievements like this temple complex where she worshipped herself as a god.
El Deir El Bahari temple was built on three elevated terraces, the same style of the middle kingdom temple of king Montohotep II who built his temple on the same site, and Queen Hatshpsut followed him.
Finally, we will stop to see the humungous twin statues of the Colossi of Memnon, built to guard the necropolis, and the stunning Temple of Queen Hatshepsut before you will return back to your hotel in Makadi Bay.
