Luxor Dendera Excursion Hurghada

(2 customer reviews)


On the excursion to Dendera & Luxor from Hurghada, you will have the chance to see the magnificent Karnak temple. Afterwards, we’ll take a break for lunch. Following lunch, you will embark on a peaceful boat ride across the Nile to reach the western bank of the river, with a stop at Banana Island.

After completing the program in Luxor, you will head to Dendera to see the temple of the goddess Hathor. Experience a day tour to Luxor and Dendera temple from Hurghada by Car and tour guide.

On the way to Luxor, you will visit one of the most stunning temples in Egypt, the Dendera temple. Then, you will drive to Luxor to visit Queen Hatshepsut temple, The Colossi of Memnon, and Karnak temple.

On the western side of Luxor, you will have the opportunity to see the Colossi Memnon at the Temple of Amenhotep III and Queen Hatshepsut. We will pick you up from Hurghada by private air-conditioned taxi at 5:00 AM.

During the visit to Dendera temple, you will explore the Temple of Hathor, which was mainly constructed during the Late Ptolemaic period, specifically during the reign of Ptolemy XII and Cleopatra VII. Also, there are scenes in the temple complex portraying the Ptolemaic rulers, including a massive relief of Cleopatra VII and her son by Julius Caesar and co-ruler Ptolemy XV.

Hathor was also considered a goddess of healing, and a sanatorium in the temple complex demonstrates this. Here, pilgrims would come to be cured by the goddess. Sacred water was used for bathing, unguents were dispensed by the priests of Hathor, and sleeping quarters were provided for those hoping that the goddess would appear in their dreams and aid them.

Next, you will visit the Temple of Karnak, the largest ancient religious site known anywhere in the world. This magnificent temple complex represents the achievement of many generations of ancient builders and Pharaohs. No place in Egypt is more impressive than Karnak. It has three main temples situated on 247 acres of land.

We will stop for lunch at a local restaurant on the west bank at 1:00 PM. Then, at 4:00 PM, we will visit the Colossi of Memnon, two massive stone statues of King Amenhotep III, the only remains of a complete mortuary temple.

These statues were made from blocks of quartzite sandstone in Cairo and were moved 700 KM to Luxor. Rising about 18 meters from the plain, they are the remains of what was once the largest complex on the west bank, built by Amenhotep the Third.

Finally, you will be transferred by a private air-conditioned vehicle to your hotel in Hurghada at 4:30 PM.

    The trip to Dendera has a uniqueness of its own. One will get to visit the Temple of Goddess Hathor. This temple is a marvel to explore, and the guide will have great much to tell you on this trip. Also, let me tell you that this is one of the best-maintained temples in all of Egypt. Hence it has to be on the booking list. Also, there are 26 different features of the temple, and seeing it is worth the effort and the journey was taken to reach here. Accordingly, the Landis Travel guide will be picking you up from the hotel at 4 AM. The bus or your private car will take you to the city of Qena, bypassing the town of Safaga. The time taken to cover this journey will be approximately three hours. Since this temple has 26 different features to be shown, it will take quite a lot of time to see it ultimately. The temple complex contains other buildings, and so here you can have ample scope of photography. Once this visit is over, we will be taken to Luxor, which is a half-hour journey from Dendera. We will have to carry our breakfast boxes for all these trips, which I would want to add that should be added within the trip package. Post your breakfast which you can complete on the vehicle that you are travelling in. Once we reach Luxor, we get to visit the Karnak Temple. After seeing this temple, you will get some free time on your hands to do the shopping for yourself. After you have had your shopping catered to, you can be a part of the boat trip on the Nile, including a stop at Banana Island. This trip ends, you will find yourself on the west bank of the Nile at the City of the Dead. Here, the journey will continue with a visit to the Colossi Of Memnon that stands guard at the temple of Amenhotep III. Again a wide array of pictures to be taken. Then we move on to the fantastic beautiful temple of Queen Hatshepsut. This temple is situated in Deir EL-Bahary. It is a marvellous piece of architecture. I could not imagine the way the rock had been cut into three layers. An explicit marvel of Engineering—Visit is a Must!!! Recommended! Beside this temple lies the temples of Thutmose III and Amenhob Neb Hept Ra. Your guide will keep you informed and free time to explore the place. Lastly, before the end of this tour, you will get a chance to visit the Alabaster Factory and, if lucky, will get to witness how the local artisans create statues in antiquity. Learning something new is so very fascinating and enthralling! Do visit.
