Description• Day one: Begin the experience with an early morning pickup from your hotel in Cairo and a transfer to the airport for your 6:00 AM flight to Luxor. After landing, simply look out for a sign with your name and meet your expert tour guide. Start the tour right away with a visit to the Valley of the Kings on the West Bank, where you will discover the tombs of various dynasties including the The Temple of Deir El Bahari. Admire the Colossi of Memnon, two gigantic sitting statues facing the Nile and representing Amenophis III. Explore also the famous Temple of Queen Hatshepsut and then have lunch at a local restaurant (beverages not included). After lunch, continue to the East Bank and see the courtyard and granite statues of Ramses the Great at the Luxor Temple. Marvel at the series of temples built over different reigns that make up Karnak. Beginning with the Avenue of Sphinxes, explore the Unfinished Propylon and the Hypo-style hall with its 134 giant columns. Admire the Obelisks of Queen Hatshepsut and Tuthmosis III, the Temple of Amon adorned with lotus and papyrus designs, the Granite Scarbeus of Amenophis III, and the Sacred Lake. Finally, transfer to your hotel in Luxor for an overnight stay at Ibrotel Luxor Hotel. • Day two: Get picked up from your hotel by a licensed tour guide in a private, air-conditioned vehicle and head to the West Bank of the Nile. Visit Medinat Habu, an archaeological site situated near the foot of the Theban Hills opposite the modern city of Luxor, Egypt. Although other structures are located within the area, the location is today associated almost exclusively with the Mortuary Temple of Ramesses III. The temple, some 492 feet, is of orthodox design and resembles closely the mortuary temple of Ramesses II (the Ramesseum). You will also have the chance to visit some other temples inside Habu Temple such as the Temple of Amun, which dates to the 18th Dynasty and was built by Queen Hatshepsut and Thutmose III. Continue your day tour to Deir el Medina, known as The Valley of the Worker. Later transfer to Luxor airport for your return flight to Cairo and hotel drop-off following landing.
