Itinerary

Egypt Gift Tours licensed Egyptology tour guide will pick you up from Hotel or Nile cruise on time by air-conditioned vehicle to start your amazing day in the west bank of Luxor. Drive to the west bank for about 40 minutes, enjoy the Nile scenery and views of the green farms and the countryside of Luxor all the way.

Arrive at Madinat Habu, located at the southern end of the Theban Necropolis, where the first labor strike in history against their king Ramses III was launched. This memorial temple of Ramses III is one of the best-preserved temples in Egypt and surrounded by a massive mud-brick enclosure wall, which may have been fortified.  Marvel at a royal palace, temples, and a series of wall carvings that depict memorial scenes and Ramses III’s defeat of the Sea Peoples.

Continue to the Valley of the Queens, also known as  Wadi el-Melikat, where the wives and children of the Kings of Egypt dating primarily from the 18th Dynasty – 20th Dynasty were buried. It was known then as Ta-Set-Neferu, meaning “the place of beauty”, more than 90 tombs are stylish and lavishly decorated. An example is the resting place carved out of the rock for Queen Nefertari (QV66) of the 19th Dynasty wife and favorite queen of Ramses II. The reliefs in her tomb are still intact and it is the largest and most spectacular in the valley of the queens.

Drive over to visit tombs of the Nobles of the New Kingdom with their relief carving of outstanding quality. These tombs are the burial places of some of the most powerful courtiers and persons of the ancient Thebes. Enjoy the daily life scenes and see the owners of the tombs in charge of their careers as officials at the court of their Pharaohs. Later on, you will be transferred to your Hotel in Luxor.
