What to Expect
Tour the most famous sites on Luxor's West Bank as you step back into Egypt's ancient history and explore the famous Valley of the Kings, and Queen Hatshepsut Temple.
You will visit the Valley of the Kings where, for a period of nearly 500 years from the 16th to 11th Century BC, tombs were constructed for the Pharaohs and powerful nobles of the New Kingdom. Travel back in time into the heart of the Theban Necropolis. Gaze in wonder as you are guided through the colorful, elaborately decorated tombs of three famous Pharoahs.
Next, you visit the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut at the valley basin of Deir el-Bahari, surrounded by steep cliffs . The beautiful colonnaded structure is a unique shape, twisting and turning down over 200 meters from the entrance, with the burial chamber 97 meters below the surface. Then, visit the two massive stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III. The colossi reaching a towering 18 meters in height, and having stood for 3,400 years, make for a breathtaking end to your trip.
