The West Bank And The Valley Of The Kings – Half Day Tour
In the morning, you will be picked up in an air-conditioned vehicle from your hotel in Luxor. Accompanied by a guide, you will be taken to the Valley of the Kings or Wadi el-Muluk.
It is a valley in Egypt where tombs were built for the Pharaoh and powerful nobles of the New Kingdom. The valley stands on the west bank of the Nile and consists of two valleys, east and West, with the majority of the royal tombs situated in the East Valley.
Further on, proceed to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut: Also known as ‘Dier El Bahari’, it was established by Queen Hatshepsut, the only woman who ruled Egypt in the Pharaonic history. As you approach it from the distance, it is as of you are looking at a modern building that has been carved out of a mountain.
Dier El-Bahari was commissioned by Queen Hatshepsut as a funerary monument to honor her father, Tutmose I and herself. Also you will visit the colossi of Memnon.
After exploring the archaeological sites, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Luxor........... End of service
