The departure from Hurghada will be at approx. 4.30 am. The journey to Luxor will take around 4, 5 hours. You will travel with an English speaking tour guide on the way to Luxor as well as during your sightseeing. The first monuments you will visit are the Colossi of Memnon before visiting the amazing Valley of the Kings, where you visit three tombs. If you want to visit Tutankhamen’s tomb you can do this for an additional 250 le. Next there is a visit to an alabaster factory; we then go to Queen Hatshepsut’s Temple. We cross the Nile by motorboat and have lunch (drinks, extra cost).
One of the tour’s highlights is visiting the temple of Karnak. Karnak’s Great Temple of Amun is the largest religious building in Egypt. The temple was built over centuries, by not one pharaoh but by many of them. The complex used to be the temple of Amun, and more temples were built around it to honor other gods. The entire area is over 100 acres. The Hypostyle Hall is a magnificent structure, which could fit inside St. Peter’s basilica in Rome and St. Paul’s cathedral in London. This is the place where the ceremony of the coronation was performed. The return time to Hurghada is scheduled at approx. 10.30 pm.
