Departing Dahab at 03:30 to make the most of the day, you will transfer to Sharm el Sheikh airport for a short flight to Luxor. Upon arrival, meet with your English speaking guide and transfer by air-conditioned bus to the West Bank of the mighty Nile River. Start your tour of Luxor’s ruins at the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens.
Used primarily for the burials of Pharaohs, from approximately 1539 BC to 1075 BC, the Valley of the Kings contains at least 63 tombs, while the nearby Valley of the Queens, where the wives of the Pharaohs were buried, along with princes and princesses, contains some 70 tombs.
You will also visit the massive stone statues of the Colossi of Memnon, and the mortuary temples of the Temple of Hatshepsut.
