Experience Details

In this private guided tour, we will visit Valley of the Kings, Hatshepsut temple, Memnon Colossi, Karnak Temple and the Luxor Temple!

We will start with the Valley of the Kings, burial place of the kings of Thebes (ancient Luxor), you will have a brief stop at the visitors center. Guides are not permitted inside the tombs, but we will tell you what to look for inside the elaborately decorated rooms. Then we will visit the Temple of Hatshepsut, one of the most striking monuments in Egypt. We will introduce you to the history of the temple and the story of Queen Hatshepsut, the famous female ruler of Egypt who posed as a male to gain the throne. Then we will take a brief photo stop at the Colossi of Memnon, which mark the site of the funerary temple of Amenhotep III. In addition you will have the chance to visit an alabaster factory and purchase genuine items if you wish.

Then we will visit Temple of Karnak. Walk along the Avenue of Sphinx to enter the complex as your guide explains how the massive facade was constructed. On entering the Temples of Karnak you will see each legacy left by the various pharaohs as the complex grew even larger. The deeper you go into the complex, the further back in time you will travel, with the oldest ruins dating back over 3,000 years.Walking through the Great Court into the Great Hypostyle Hall, it's hard not to be overwhelmed by the 134 columns towering above you like an ancient forest.

Then we go to Luxor Temple which was once joined to the Temple of Karnak by a two-kilometer long Avenue of Sphinx, a portion of which marks the entrance to the temple. A pure Egyptian temple, the inner walls and columns are decorated with intricate hieroglyphics which we will help you decipher.
