Day 1- Luxor Tour
We will be delighted to pick you up early in the morning from your cruise at Safaga Port. You will be comfortably transferred to Luxor in a private A.C. Car. Upon arrival, you will meet your private tour guide, who will accompany you to the most impressive Luxor sites.
First, you will visit the remarkable Karnak Temple, the largest temple complex ever built by man. It represents the combined achievement of many generations of ancient builders and pharaohs. The Temple of Karnak comprises three main temples, smaller enclosed temples, and several outer temples on 247 acres of land.
Next, you will explore the Valley of the Kings, the final resting place of Egypt’s rulers from the 18th to the 20th dynasty. It is home to tombs, including the great pharaoh Ramses II and boy pharaoh Tutankhamun. The tombs were well stocked with all the material goods a ruler might need in the next world, and most of the decoration inside the tombs is still well preserved.
Afterwards, you will visit the stunning Hatshepsut Temple, one of the most beautiful and best-preserved temples of Ancient Egypt. The temple was built on three levels with two wide ramps in a central position joining the levels together.
Finally, you will witness the impressive Colossi of Memnon. These two massive stone statues of King Amenhotep III are the only remains of a complete mortuary temple. The statues are made from blocks of quartzite sandstone in Cairo and then moved 700 KM to Luxor.
In the evening, you can enjoy an optional tour of the Sound and Light Show at Karnak. This show starts with a historical introduction covering the birth of the great city of Thebes and the erection of the Karnak.
