First of all we will go to discover west bank of the Nile where Valley of the Kings is located. On the way to Queen Hatshepsut temple we will stop at newly discovered and restored Memnon Colossi and Amenhotep III temple.
Visit to the Valley of the Kings includes entrance to three open to public tombs. If you want to enter Tutankhamon tomb an additional ticket must be purchased (optional visit). Here we will also have a chance to visit Alabaster factory and discover how in ancient Egypt Egyptians made their vessels and jars. After West bank visit we will have lunch in a local restaurant (drinks are not included and can be ordered with extra charge). Optional visit to Banana island is also available.
Second part of our day will be dedicated to the east bank visit. Our goal is the Greatest religious complex of all times Karnak temple. It is not just one temple, but temple within temple. So many small temples and shrines can be discovered there, old and new pylons, Sacred lake and a famous statue of a Scarab.
After we finish Karnak temple exploration we will move back to Hurghada. Estimated arrival time 10 pm.
