About Luxor city
Luxor is one of the oldest cities in the world; we don't know when exactly Luxor was built. The ancient Egyptians called the city "waset" that means the scepter, but the Greek called it Thebes of the hundred gates and the Roman - Dios Polis Magana. At last when the Arab conquered Egypt they gave it the name of Luxor and it means the palaces as the city has lots of ancient temples. 2/3 world's monuments are located in Luxor. And we will visit with you the main temples and shrines of the city.

West Thebs exploration
Our first destination will be West bank where we will visit the west Thebes. On the way to the Valley of the Kings we will have a short stop at Colossi of Memnon to take some pictures with these gigantic statues. These two somewhat weathered seated statues greet visitors to the necropolis. They are all that remain of what was once the largest mortuary temple in the necropolis, that of Amenhotep III.
Deep in the limestone hills to the north-west of Deir el Bahri is a remote valley known as the Valley of the Kings . Here are the pharaohs of the 18th, 19th & 20th Dynasties chose their eternal resting place. Thutmose I was the 1st pharaoh to excavate a tomb in the barren valley, and to construct his mortuary temple at the edge of the verdant valley. Here the most famous King Tutankhamen is situated. Can be optionally visited on your day tour (150 LE per ticket ). This famous tomb is among the smallest in the Valley of the Kings but the only one that was found non robed. The five thousand-odd objects cataloged from the tomb represent a unique accumulated collection and, perhaps, the richest placed in any tomb. Our visit includes entrance to 2 different tombs, so you can get an idea about Pharaonic funerary art.
Queen Hatshepsut temple
Next stop at the most beautiful temple of the Valley Queen Hatshipsut temple at Deir el Bahari. This terraced sanctuary designed by queen’s architect Senmut is the most beautiful temple in the necropolis. Her temple was designed like the adjacent 11th Dynasty mortuary temple of Mentuhotep the Great, with terraced courts. These rose, one above the other, by connecting inclined planes at the centre.
East Bank & Karnak temple
Lunch in a local restaurant in Luxor on set menu basis will be offered.
After lunch we'll go to the East bank to explore huge temples of Karnak which has no equal in the world. It is not a single temple, but temple within temple, shrine within shrine, where almost all the pharaohs, particularly of the new Kingdom, wished to record their names & deeds for posterity. Its famous Great Hypostyle hall has 134 columns arranged in sixteen rows, covers an area of 4,983 square metres. It is the largest single chamber of any temple in the world. The hall was decorated throughout. All the walls and the shafts of the columns were covered with reliefs & inscriptions showing adoration of the deities, especially Amon-Ra.
