The Tour Itinerary
Luxor West Bank
On the morning of your day tour, our tour guide will meet you wherever you want in the city of Luxor so that you start your exploration tour. With the assistance of a private expert driver, you will be transferred in a private modern air-conditioned car towards the west bank of Luxor to visit some of its incredible interesting attractions including the following landmarks & sights:
The Valley of the Queens is located on Luxor’s west bank and it contains about eighty tombs inside. It was discovered in 1904 and was shown to be the final resting place of the royal family members from the 18th to the 20th dynasties of ancient Egypt the New Kingdom (1550 - 1070 BC), including the famous tomb of Nefertari, the wife of Pharaoh Ramses II. The most well-known tomb there is the one that belongs to Queen Nefertari and it has the number KV21. It was constructed under the orders of King Ramses II who is the wife of the queen and he wanted to let it be a truly fascinating tomb and that is exactly what he commissioned.
The complex of Habu is a wonderful archaeological site located near the foot of the Hills of Thebes opposite Luxor city. It was built during the New Kingdom period, specifically during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses III (1186 - 1155 BC). The most notable site there is the mortuary Temple of Ramses III which was the most important religious building during the New Kingdom. It is such a great source of the most interesting inscribed reliefs on its walls that depict the advent & the defeat of the sea people during King Ramses III’s reign. The best thing about it is that its walls are well-preserved and the temple is surrounded by a massive mud-brick enclosure.
Then you will have the lunch break when you will get the chance to head to an oriental restaurant to enjoy the most delicious lunch meal and then you will continue your tour with your private guide to visit:
Deir El Medina has been the village of the workers who used to work in the archeological site of the tombs of the pharaohs. The village was established during the reign of Pharaoh Thutmose I, and it was inhabited for over 400 years until the end of the New Kingdom period. It was the home to many highly skilled craftsmen, including painters, sculptors, and builders of Thebes who were responsible for building and decorating the great royal tombs of the kings in both the valleys of the Kings & the Queens. The discovery of such a terrific site has revealed a huge quantity of ancient artifacts and lots of texts written on papyri and such written texts assisted a lot in understanding the daily life of the ancient Egyptians and their major customs and traditions.
This funerary temple was dedicated to pharaoh Ramses II and the most interesting thing about that time is its seated statue of the pharaoh himself the whole site was actually dedicated to god Amun. Inside the temple, you can explore its half-preserved walls that include some decorated reliefs and many scenes that depict the great Battle of Kadish which is characterized by the first peace treaty in the world. Some other scenes depict the Festival of Min and the Syrian wars. One of the most famous features of the Ramesseum Temple is the "Ozymandias Colossus". The temple features intricate reliefs and carvings depicting scenes from the life and reign of Ramesses II.
