Package Itinerary

You will meet by our professional Egyptology English speaking guide to accompany you by private car to visit the East bank to visit the temple of Karnak it was known as Ipet-isut (Most select of places) by the ancient Egyptians. It is a city of temples built over 2000 years and dedicated to the Theben triad of Amun, Mut and Khonsu. Then proceed to visit Luxor temple. The Luxor Temple was dedicated to the Theban Triad of Amun-Re, his wife Mut, and his son Khonsu. It was called "Ipet resyt," which means the Southern Opet or the Place of the Seclusion of Amun-Re. It was directly connected to the temple of Karnak, the main cult center of Amun-Re or Amun-Min, the sky god or the ithyphallic fertility god. The temple had another group of divinities that included Iunet, Hathor, and Atum, whose statues were discovered in a hidden storage pit. Then cross the west bank & visit Valley of the Kings, it is once again a hive of activity. Perhaps the most immediately visible sign of this activity is the trench; & sandbag wall, that has appeared, in the central area of the Valley, between tombs KV. 9 (Ramses V/VI) & KV. 57 (Horemheb). This trench is the site of excavations being conducted by The Amarna Royal Tombs Project, which in their aims managed to embrace several of the factors which make Egyptology such an attractive subject to many of our readers. (For a general view of the main, or eastern, King’s Valley, see map 1), Then visit the temple of queen Hatshepsut which is one of the most dramatically situated in the world, the queen`s architect set it at head of a valley over shadowed by peak of Thebes where the goddess lived, then proceed to tomb of Nobles The Tombs of the Nobles actually comprises a number of distinct areas on the west bank These areas mostly lie in five different regions, then drive back to your hotel.
