What to Expect
Your Egyptologost tour guide will pick you up from your hotel and you will be transferred via an air-conditioned modern vehicle to visit Dendera Temple which is dedicated to the goddess Hathor - the cow headed woman and known as the Goddess of Love.
This temple dates back to 125 BC and it is quiet unique because of the fact that the roof is still intact and visitors can admire the beautiful ceiling depicting the hours of the day and night as well as the traveling journey of the sun, the moon and the stars across the sky.
One of its ceilings is decorated with a plaster cast of the signs of the zodiac. Not only that but this temple has the only relief which represents queen Cleopatra and her son Caesarian.
Continue the tour to Abydos which was the head of god Osiris- the god of the underworld and part of his body was buried there according to the legend of ancient Egyptians.
In Abydos you are going to visit the famous temple of king Seti I – the founder of Abydos temple which was completed by his son king Ramses II.
The beauty of this temple almost feels like an apology and dedication to the following gods: Osiris, isis, Horus, Amun Ra, Mut and Khonsu.
After finishing the tour, you will be driven to your hotel in Luxor.
