About this activity
You will be picked up from your hotel between 08:00.9:00 am in an air conditioned van by your Egyptologist tour guide. First you will go to the west band, it is known as the city of dead and is the funerary complex of the Ancient Egyptians. You will visit the valley of kings, the ancient cemetery of Pharaohs of the new kingdom. Hidden in the mountains between the tow limestone hills of Gurna the valley of kings holds 63 registered tombs and 3 more tombs have recently been found. You will then visit the Hatshepsut Temple that is a mortuary temple with a unique design as it is the only temple in Egypt built in terrace formation into the cliff face.
Hatshepsut was a famous female pharaoh who wore a false beard and all the trappings of male pharaohs in order to claim the throne for herself. Then visit the Memnon statues, the only remaining statues fronting the mortuary temple of Amenhotep III and show the pharaoh sitting on his throne. Next, go across the Nile to the East Bank for lunch at Maro restaurant (drinks not included). 
The last stop in this tour is the Karnak Temples, the largest ancient temple complex in Egypt. Karnak Temple complex is one of the major sites of Egypt and within its bounds the sacred energies of Ancient Egypt can still be felt. You will also see the Luxor Temple known as Temple of the Gods. You will then be taken back to your hotel.
