Know More about this tour

Your expert tour guide will pick you up from your Hotel / NileCuise in Luxor and accompany you to visit the memorial temple of king Seti I at Abydos, which was built by Seti I and his son Ramses II for the God Osiris of the afterlife and resurrection. Abydos Temple is one of the most impressive religious structures in Egypt. The fine art reliefs incorporate the Abydos Kings list (showing the cartouche contains the names of the pharaohs of Egypt from the first dynasty to the 19th dynasty), There are seven chapels of Horus, Isis, Osiris, Amon Re, Ptah, Seti I, and Re-Horakhty. At the back of the temple, discover the enigmatic structure known as the Osireion, thought to be Osiris tomb. After finishing, enjoy free time to explore the temple at leisure

Continue to visit Dendera temple (Located 99km to the South of Abydos), It is one of the best preserved temple complexes in Egypt. The temple was founded by pharaoh Pepi I (2250 BC) and continued during the New kingdom (1550-1080 BC). What was left dates back to the Greco-Roman time in Egypt. The ceiling of the Dendera Temple has recently been cleaned, in a careful way that removed hundreds of years of black soot, without harming the ancient paint underneath. As a result the spectacular ceiling painting has been exposed in the main hall of Hathor temple, and some of the most vibrant and colourful paintings dating from antiquity are now visible. Discover the widely known Dendera zodiac relief found during the Greco-Roman time in Egypt, the crypts which was for keeping cult equipment, archives and magical emblems for the temple's protection, though the most important object kept in the crypts was a statue of the BA of Hathor, the Isis Birth House (Mammisi) raised by Nectanebo II and the temple sacred lake.
On the rear outside wall of the temple, the scenes showing the massive figure of Cleopatra VII and her son by Julius Caesar, Caesarion. Then enjoy free time to explore the temple at leisure. After finishing, you will be transferred back to your Nile Cruise / Hotel in Luxor.
