Itinerary of Luxor Day Tour from Port Ghalib
Your Luxor tour from Port Ghalib will start when you will be picked up from your hotel in Port Ghalib by a private air-conditioned vehicle, then arrive at Luxor where you tour around all the archaeological enchanting Luxor attractions with your own personal tour guide. You will cross the Nile and then discover the captivating landmarks of the west bank starting with:
The Valley of the Kings
The Valley of the Kings lies between the earth and the heavens, it lies in the heart of a mountain which contains 63 tombs to rulers from the 18th to the 19th and the 20th Dynasties of the new kingdom (1570-1070 BC) filled with extraordinary beautiful treasures, artifacts that they could ever need in the afterlife, enchanting decorations and the remains of pharaohs such as Rames the great, Amenhotep I, Hatshepsut, and Tutankhamun. Valley of the Kings became a World Heritage Site of UNESCO in 1979.
Queen Hatshepsut Temple
At the doorsteps of the marvelous temple of Hatshepsut (1479 BC) feels like a natural phenomenon born out of the Theban Mountain. It is the most preserved temple of ancient Egypt which was dedicated to the creator god Amun and to honor the great legacy of Queen Hatshepsut. The design of the temple is amazingly created in the style of Classical Architecture of the new kingdom on three levels with two wide ramps in a central position joining all the levels together.
Colossi of Memnon
The colossal Colossi of Memnon are two gigantic blocks of quartzite sandstone standing at the height of 18 m (60ft) weighing 720 tons each resembling Pharaoh Amenhotep III(1386-1350) which were moved 700 km from Cairo to Luxor. It was destroyed by a large earthquake in 27 BC and was later reconstructed in 199 AD.
You will then have your lunch around noon at a local restaurant in Luxor then head to:
You discover the holy Karnak temple complex where wishes and dreams came true, It represents the combined achievements of the ancient Egyptians across the ages. For more than 1500 years, it has been one of the biggest religious man-made constructions on earth, and the worship of the Theban triad Amun, Mut, & Khnsou. It was constructed more than 4000 years on 247 acres of land containing three main temples & several enclosed and outer temples.
You will end your day with an optional tour in a sailboat (Felucca) in the late afternoon which is the ideal way to fully discover the traditional rural life on the river bank. Finally, you will be returned to your hotel by A/C vehicle thus ending your Luxor day tour from Port Ghalib.
