Day Tour to Luxor from Hurghada

After the pick up from the hotel in Hurghada ,We head to Luxor by air-conditioned vehicle to visit the Splendid Temples of Karnak on the east bank of the nile , the largest place of worship that was ever built. Its ancient name Ipet-isut means “the most sacred of places.” Construction at the complex began during the reign of Senusret I in the Middle Kingdom 1970 bc and continued into the Ptolemaic period, although most of the extant buildings date from the New Kingdom.

Karnak temples are considered the greatest open-air museums and probably the second most visited historical site in Egypt after the pyramids of Giza in Cairo. The complex of Karnak Temples was built over a 1300-year period, the temple of Amun (the state God), that lies at the heart of the complex covers more than 60 acres.

Afterwards , we cross to the the the West Bank of the Nile to visit the legendary Valley of the kings, which was the necropolis of the New Kingdom pharaohs. 63 tombs have been found there and numbered on the maps in the order of their discovery (entrance ticket to three tombs), while the tomb of the boy king Tutankhamun is optional with extra ticket.

Then, we visit the amazing partly rock-hewn Mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut at Deir al-Bahri 1507 BC. It is a breath taking sight. Afterwards, we visit an alabaster workshop (optional). Then, we proceed to the Colossi of Memnon, soaring 18 meter high & originally guarded Amenhotep’s Mortuary Temple 1390 BC.

N.B., But if you did visit the Valley of the kings and the Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut before, you can replace them with the Mortuary Temple of Ramses the 3rd at Medinet Habu, which is second only to Karnak Temples in size and detail with reliefs that reach 27 m showing an oversized Ramses scattering enemies from his chariot. As well as Egypt’s sole relief of a naval battle against the sea peoples. Then, we go to the remarkable Valley of the Nobles, That is made up of more than 400 tombs mainly from the New Kingdom, providing an invaluable insight into daily life in the New Kingdom (entrance ticket to two tombs) .

Instead of the Valley of the Nobles, we can explore the beauty of the Valley of the Workers at the village of Deir al-Medina, where the craftsmen, servants and laborers who worked on the royal tombs lived in that village. Its tombs provide a rare insight into the lives of ordinary people in ancient Egypt. 

Then you will have the chance to enjoy some free time at leisure in Luxor and then you will be driven back To your hotel in Hurghada.
