Enjoy this 5-hour guided sightseeing private tour in the West Bank from your Luxor hotel. You will be transported by an air-conditioned vehicle to the most popular monuments Luxor's West Bank has to offer: Valley of the Kings, Temple of Queen Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon. You will be guided by a qualified Egyptologist tour guide who makes sure all your tour needs are fulfilled.
Your friendly guide and driver will come to pick you up from your hotel lobby in the morning. You will then be taken to the Necropolis of Thebes, the Valley of the Kings in the West Bank of Luxor. This site, which is located in the canyon valley of the Mountain Thebes, is home to the royal tombs of famous pharaohs who ruled over ancient Egypt in the period of the 18th to 20th dynasties during the New Kingdom. This ancient burial site is one of the most popular sites for Egypt visitors and is not to be missed. Your tour guide will explain how the tombs were made and tell you about the traditions of ancient Egyptian burial. Afterwards, you'll visit three tombs. Here there is an option of visiting the tomb of the famous King Tutakhamun and the newly opened tomb of Seti I (additional ticket required).
After visiting the Valley, you will see the amazing and unforgettable facade of the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut (Deir El Bahari). This queen dressed herself as a man to be able to ascend the throne. For this reason, Hatshepsut is the only female pharaoh Egypt has known.
After Hatshepsut's Temple, you will have a look inside an alabaster village, where artisans create wonderful artifacts of local alabaster in the traditional way of the ancient Egyptians.
Last, but not least, you will visit the remaining statues of the Colossi of Memnon. These ancient statues are the tallest in all of Egypt.
After finishing your tour you will be dropped off back at your accommodation in Luxor.
