What To Expect
Upon your arrival, you will be transferred to Luxor, approximately three hours away from Safaga. Your first stop is the famous Karnak Temple, the largest place of worship ever built and the greatest example of worship in history. It was constructed from the beginning of the Middle Kingdom to the Greco Roman Kingdom. Within the complex, you will see the great Hypostyle Hall, an incredible forest of giant pillars.
After lunch at local restaurant, you will head to the West Bank of the River Nile to visit the two colossal statues of Amenhotep III (Colossi of Memnon). Next is the Valley of the Kings, where the magnificent tombs of the ancient kings were discovered. These tombs were curved deep into the desert rock, richly decorated and filled with treasures for the afterlife of the pharaohs. We then visit the Hatshepsut Temple at El Deir El Bahary, an impressive temple dedicated to the only female pharaoh Hatshepsut. The temple rises out of the desert plain in a series of terraces and merges with the sheer limestone cliffs that surround it. At the end of the day (around 18:00), you will be escorted by your guide back to the cruise door at Safaga Port.
