Luxor East and West Bank Day Tour

Day 1

Luxor was the capital of ancient Egyptian city of Thebes tretching on both banks of the river Nile. In the you will visit the world-renowned Karnak Temple. As the center of ancient religious life in Egypt it was dedicated to the king of all Gods – Amun Ra – and connected by an avenue of Sphinxes to the smaller but still magnificent Southern Sanctuary -  Luxor temple.

Stretching on both banks of the river Nile, Luxor was the capital of ancient Egyptian city of Thebes. On this half day tour you will visit the world-renowned Karnak Temple, the centre of religious life in Egypt dedicated to the most cherished of deities – Amun Ra. The vast complex includes a long alley lined with Sphinx statues leading to the magnificent Southern Sanctuary.

Later, you will explore to the heart of the Theban Necropolis on Luxor's West Bank where tombs, mortuary temples and colossal statues were built for pharaohs of the New Kingdom. The Valley of the Kings still hides many secrets and includes the tomb of king Tutankhamen, preserved almost intact for more than 3,000 years.

Equally impressive is the mortuary built beneath the cliffs of Deir el Bahri for Queen Hatshepsut, the most powerful woman to ever rule Egypt. 

op for the day will be the Collosi of Memnon. The two massive stone statues which, some say, still protect the necropolis of the ancient Thebes.
