The city of Luxor is situated in southern Egypt covering an area of 417 square kms ( 161 sq mi ). It is characterized as the world’s greatest open-air museum. In ancient Egypt was called waset which means city of the sceptre. It was once the capital of the New Kingdom 1550-1060 BC.
Pick-up from your hotel in Luxor, we will cross to 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 2nd 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. Later on you will be transferred back to your hotel in Luxor.
