Egypt Excursions and Day Tours
/ Luxor Day Tour from Aswan By Bus
Our rep will meet and pick you up from your hotel in Aswan and drive to Luxor for 3 and half hours approximately.
Upon your arrival at Luxor, your Egyptologist guide will be waiting for you to start your day tour.
The tour begins with the Karnak temple, which is actually a complex of temples. The temple is dedicated to Amun Ra, the chief god in Egyptian mythology. Enjoy the Great Hypostyle court and the reliefs and murals that were added through the generations. Feel astonished at the tall obelisks of 70 feet high and cut off a single piece of granite. Look at the statues of the different pharaohs who want to show their loyalty to RA, the Sun god
Following this, you will cross the Nile to the West bank where you will visit the Valley of the Kings This is a barren desert area in which the Pharaohs were hiding their mummies and treasures. A lot of these are found in these beautiful colored tombs. You can visit three tombs to enjoy the colors and murals on the walls. The tombs were carved deep in the mountain rock
Then continue your tour on the west bank and drive to the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut. She is the first female pharaoh in ancient Egypt who ruled the kingdom for 20 prosperous years. This temple is called El Deir el Bahari as the early Christians used the Northern monastery as it was a Coptic monastery. Unlike the other temples, this one was built of limestone and partly hewn in the mother bedrock. It has three terraces and its focal point is to tell the story of the Divine birth of the Queen.
You will enjoy having lunch during the tour in a local restaurant in Luxor and finally, you will drive back to Aswan.
