TRIP ITINERARY

Enjoy a full day to one of the largest, richest, and best known archaeological sites in the world and it was one of the first sites listed by UNESCO as a world Heritage Site in 1979.

It is known that Luxor or Thebes is one of the largest, richest, and best known archaeological sites in the world and it was one of the first sites listed by UNESCO as a world Heritage Site in 1979.

The West bank of Luxor is one of the most important sites in the world. It covers about 10 kilometers square in which archaeologists have found thousands of tombs, temples, houses, shrines, monasteries and work stations.

Easily we can say that the West bank is A unique place where we are going to watch a silent movie on the walls of the places you will visit today, about the houses, the gardens, the silent movie on the walls of the tombs, vineyard, sport, celebration, music and fun and so on

You will start your day with the breakfast at our hotel then your guide will join you to a full day tour to the West bank of the Nile.

You will start with the temple of the last great pharaoh Ramses the third Madinet Habu, which was discovered between “1859-1899 “by the Egyptian antiquities service, the temple is one of the largest memorial temples on the west bank of the River Nile and the best preserved temple in Thebes.

During your visit to this temple you will enjoy watching some of the wonderful scenes like hunting Bull by the king Ramses the third and you will feel the pain of the wounded animal. Here also you will look at the ruins of the only royal palace you can see in Luxor more over you will enjoy the beautiful scenes of Ramses battles against the Sea people and Libyans.

Also you will see the ritual sacrifice scenes of the enemies in front of different gods. Anyhow you will enjoy the stories you will listen from your guide about the Syrian fortress and the first pylon in this temple.

Continue your tour to the valley of the Queens with its 72 tombs which dedicated mainly to the queens, princes and high officials. Here you can see the best decorated tomb of the famous queen Nefertari-the wife of the king Ramses the second and two more tombs for the prince Kha em waste(Qv44) and Amon khep shef.

Next stop will be Deir El Madina or the city of the workers The name was given to the place after the Christian converted the temple of the goddess Hathor into church and church means Dier in Arabic so it means the church or the monastery of the town.

The place was discovered between “1905-1909” and they found village, cemetery, temple and large amount of Ostracs, almost 5000 pieces which tells about their daily life. We know that in that place they discovered the oldest laundry in the world. We knew also about the payment system. Sure was not money but piece of land, head of animals and little house.

We knew that the government cared about the workers life, week counted in that time 10 days and normally workers had 3 days off in which they can go and visit their families and rest from work . On this day you have a big chance to touch the appreciation that the workers and the artisans gain in that era, were they slaves or free, where did they live and work? ,were they allow to deal with the public or not ?how were the designs of their houses ,their tombs ,and why they choose their city to be to the west bank of the river ,in your visit to Dier Al Madina ,you will see to tombs of the workers ,small temple of Dier Al Madina, moreover the 70 mud bricks houses of the workers which were found near by the tombs.

Continue to the Valley of Noblemen. Noblemen were some of the powerful courtiers and they had these rock cut tombs in an area called Sheikh Abd EL Qurna. . Here you can see the difference and the change from the repeated scenes in the tombs of the kings and queens to the scenes which concern with life, earth life the activities like fishing, hunting birds and plough the land. The common question from our clients is how we are quite sure about that culture, life and so on. The answer is everything is depicted on the walls of the tombs of the noblemen which are small in size but great in value. Here in your first stop more than 400 tombs, of which only 7 is of high interest, Those of Rekhmire, Sennofer, Ramose, Userhat, Khaemhat, Nakht and Menna. . The entrance ticket for 2 tombs only but you can add 2 more or 4 tombs to enjoy more and more details.

Then you will head with your guide to Valley of the Kings where you will visit the spectacular tombs of the new Empire Pharaohs. 64 tombs including the tomb of the very famous boy king Tutanchamon were dug totally inside the mountains. Your guide will recommend for you the most beautiful opened 3 tombs for the entrance ticket but two more tombs are extra charge, Tutanchamon and Ramses 6th.

After the Valley of the Kings and on the way to lunch, you will stop by the Colossi of Memnon, the gigantic statues of the king Amenhotep the third that was once standing in front of his mortuary temple and decorating the entrance of that temple.

• Non-Catholics can enter the Vatican and non-Christians are welcomed at churches around the world. While not all the holy mosques of Egypt are off-limits to non-Muslims. All the historical mosques are open for the visit of Muslims/non-Muslims alike like Mohamed Ali Mosque within the Citadel, Amr Ibn El Ass mosque, Ibn Tulun mosque, El Refae mosque, Madrassa of Sultan Hassan and Al Azhar mosque. However, there are protocols which must be followed. Always remember a mosque is a place of prayer and worship for Muslims. It is not a museum.

The answer is between yes and no. in most of the sightseeing it is allowed to take photos and make your trip memorable but there are other places in which you can not take even your camera with you for example Egyptian Museum, Valley of the kings, inside any of the Pyramid, inside the tombs in Sakkara, tombs of noblemen in Luxor, valley of the queens in Luxor.
