While some of the tombs at this site have only a single burial chamber, others are highly sophisticated and beautifully painted. More than 60 tombs have been discovered here, including that of King Tutankhamun.

Tutankhamun's mummy is currently on display in his tomb, but only a small number of tickets are available each day the tomb is open to tourists. In addition, tour companies are prohibited from purchasing multiple tickets for their customers. Instead, visitors must purchase a ticket in person on the day of their visit.

The huge temple of Queen Hatshepsut, which was carved out of the rock, will then be shown to you. To really appreciate the beauty of this temple, you must go and see it.

You will return to the cruise ship after seeing the temple, where you will spend the rest of the day alone.

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.
