Rated 5.00 out of 5
£35.00 – £70.00
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. You will visit one of the most stunning temples in Egypt, the Dendera temple, on the way to Luxor. 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, as well as the temple of 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 mostly 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 huge 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, which is the largest ancient religious site known anywhere in the world. This magnificent temple complex represents the combined achievement of many generations of ancient builders and Pharaohs. No site in Egypt is more impressive than Karnak. It is actually 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, which are 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 that existed 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.Select options

The Phiala temple was built to honour the goddess Isis and is the last temple built in the classical Egyptian style.

Construction for the project began in 1960 and was completed in 1968.
The unfinished obelisk in Aswan is the source of ancient Egypt's finest granite used to make statues and embellish temples, pyramids, and obelisks. The large unfinished obelisk in the Northern Quarries has provided valuable insight into how these monuments were created.
