Day 2 Luxor East & West Banks Tour
After a good breakfast at the hotel, our guide will pick you up at the hotel lobby, and then we will head out to officially start our Luxor tour. A morning excursion will be an exploration of the west bank of the Nile. We will first pay a visit to the Valley of the Kings, which renowned as the mausoleums of Pharaohs for generations from 1570 BC to 1090 BC. Since the tombs were dug into the steep cliffs, their entrances were always set halfway up the hill with a narrow lane leading deep into the catacombs. Inside the underground palaces, the walls and ceilings were richly decorated with exquisite murals, which survive to this day. Then, we will conclude the morning Luxor tours to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the only mausoleum dedicated to a female pharaoh.  

After enjoying lunch at a smart restaurant, we will continue to visit hot scenic spots on the east bank of the Nile. First, we will follow our guide to Colossi of Memnon for the two gigantic stone statues with the total height of 20 meters (66 feet). After that, we will proceed to the Luxor Temple for the perfectly preserved murals. At the end of the day, we will move onwards to the Karnak Temple, which is the largest temple of ancient Egypt. Travelling through the majestic stone columns there, you will marvel at the grand scale of the architecture.
