Know More about this tour


At 7:00 am Pickup from your Hotel or Nile Cruise in Luxor by Tour guide then you will be transferred by Private A/C Vehicle to the West Bank of the Nile where you will visit Medinat Habu, it is an archaeological locality situated near the foot of the Theban Hills on the West Bank of the River Nile opposite the modern city of Luxor, Egypt.Although other structures are located within the area, the location is today associated almost exclusively with the Mortuary Temple of Ramesses III The temple, some 150m long, is of orthodox design, and resembles closely the mortuary temple of Ramesses II (the Ramesseum).Also you will be able to visit some other temples inside Habu Temple Such as Temple of Amun dating to the 18th Dynasty, built by Queen Hatshepsut and Thutmose III. It has undergone many alterations and modifications over the years, partially in the 20th, 25th, 26th, 29th and 30th Dynasties and the Greco-Roman period.
Then Continue your day Tour to Deir el Medina, known as The Valley of the worker, Deir el-Medina is an ancient Egyptian village which was home to the artisans who worked on the tombs in the Valley of the Kings during the 18th to 20th dynasties of the New Kingdom period (ca. 15501080 BC) The paintings appear so fresh.
End your day Tour with a visit to Valley of the Queens it's is a place where wives of Pharaohs were buried in ancient times. In ancient times, it was known as Ta-Set-Neferu, meaning "the place of the Children of the Pharaoh", because along with the Queens of the 18th, 19th and 20th dynasties (15501070 BCE) many princes and princesses were also buried with various members of the nobility.The tombs of these individuals were maintained by mortuary priests who performed daily rituals and provided offerings and prayers for the deceased nobility. The valley is located near the better known Valley of the Kings, on the west bank of the Nile across from Thebes (modernLuxor). This barren area in the western hills was chosen due to its relative isolation and proximity to the capital.

    Got picked up from the airport, brought to a hotel for a quick change and a bit of rest. Then toured Muhammad Ali Mosque, then by evening went to the Giza Station for the 12 hour train ride to Aswan. It was a great experience, train is not that first rate, but gets the job done. Arriving at Aswan, we were immediately brought to the waiting Radamis II cruise ferry. Boat ride was great! Room was clean and staff made sure we're always comfortable. From Aswan we made our way back to Luxor, hopping on and off to visit temples along the way, complimented by a very knowledgeable committed tour guide. After 4 days / 3 Nights on the river, from Luxor, we caught the train to Giza where we were picked up by the same tour bus on the 1st day, brought to Giza Pyramid, which served as the highlight, the cherry on top of the great dessert! In the afternoon, we had a great time getting items from the soukh, and flew in the evening. Great memorable experience, thank you Egypt!
