Karnak was the most important place of worship in the Theban triangle (Amun, Mut, and Khonsu).

Our second temple is Luxor Temple, most of it built by the New Kingdom pharaoh Amenhotep III and completed by King Tutankhamun and the great king Ramses II. The first pylon was raised by Ramesses II and decorated with his military victory at the Battle of Kadesh. You will notice a mosque called (Abu Al-Haggag) erected on the ruins of a church that was inside.

After the morning breakfast, we will take you to visit the archaeological sites of ancient Egypt on the Luxor west bank tour of the Nile, including the Valley of the Kings, where you will see the well-preserved tombs of the kings of the new kingdom, including the great ruler Ramses II, the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut, called "the Holy of Holies". It consists of three levels connected together by ramps and on its walls, there are various scenes representing the divine birth of the queen and also her trading expedition to the land of Punt. The temple is mainly dedicated to the cult of the supreme god Amon-Ra.

But remember, you can always ask to join a group tour if available, this option will guarantee the reduction of the tour pricing as we mostly deal with private guided tours to assure the highest quality of service.
The proportionately higher prices for people traveling alone (Solo Travelers) mostly result from the higher overnight-room costs, as normally almost all hotel rooms are structured for 2 people who can each assume half of the overnight costs. This also applies to flat-rate travel. The hotels would not benefit from offering a reduction to solo travelers when the rooms could be occupied by 2 persons at a normal price. During the low season, some hotels lower the prices as a reason for the decreased demand since they have a large number of beds when the demand is not too high.
Prices vary throughout the year depending on the offer and request. During the summer and especially during the holidays that are considered high seasons like the Christma and New Year holidays, Easter holidays, and special events such as sports championship or destinations that are very popular and recent. Therefore tour operators can demand higher prices according to the increasing cost of accommodation and/ or implementation.
Most trips can also be booked for a shorter or longer period. However, if, for example, your departure time is changed, trips lasting 5 or 10 days will not be possible, that’s why we always request the flight details before proceeding with the booking, just to make sure the last suggested itinerary is fit for both the traveler and the operator.
From the date of booking until 46 days before your arrival date, 10% of the entire tour price will be charged. Between 45 and 31 days before your arrival date, 20% of the entire tour price will be charged. Between 30 and 15 days before your arrival date, 50% of the entire tour price will be charged. Between 14 and 1 days before your arrival date, 100% of the entire tour price will be charged.
