Day 2: Luxor Tour – Cairo - Alexandria Port. Pick you up from your hotel in Luxor after breakfast. In Luxor trip you will visit the following sights with your Egyptology expert tour guide:
Karnak Temple Complex Trip
It is the largest temple complex ever built by man, and represents the combined achievement of many generations of ancient Egyptian builders. The Temple of Karnak is actually three main temples, smaller enclosed temples, and several outer temples located about three kilometers north of Luxor. Karnak is actually the sites modern name. Its ancient name was Ipet-isut, meaning “The Most sacred of Places”. The three main temples of Mut, Montu and Amun are enclosed by enormous brick walls. The Open Air Museum is located to the north of the first courtyard, across from the Sacred Lake. Actually, there are a number of smaller temples and chapels spread about Karnak, such as the Temple of Osiris Hek-Djet, which is actually inside the enclosure wall of the Temple of Amun. Lunch meal will be served at five stars restaurant in Luxor or in a local restaurant as per your desire. Then cross to the Nile to the west bank.
Valley of the kings Trip
The Valley of the Kings actually has two components – the East Valley and the West Valley. It is the East Valley which most tourists visit and in which most of the tombs of the New Kingdom Pharaohs can be found. (The West Valley has only one remote tomb open to the public, that of Ay who was Tutankhamun’s successor.) Beginning with the 18th Dynasty and ending with the 20th, the kings abandoned the Memphis area and built their tombs in Thebes. Also abandoned were the pyramid style tombs. Most of the tombs were cut into the limestone following a similar pattern, three corridors, an antechamber and a sunken sarcophagus chamber. These catacombs were harder to rob and were more easily concealed. Construction usually lasted six years, beginning with the new reign. The texts in the tombs are from the Book of the Dead, the Book of the Gates and the Book of the Underworld.
Deir el-Bahri Mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut
The Temple of Hatshepsut is the best-preserved of the three complexes. Called by the people Djeser-djeseru, “sacred of sacreds”, Hatshepsut’s terraced and rock-cut temple is one of the most impressive monuments of the west bank. Situated directly against the rock face of Deir el-Bahri’s great rock bay, the temple not only echoed the lines of the surrounding cliffs in its design, but it seems a natural extension of the rock faces. The temple was little more than a ruin when first excavated in 1891, but it has led to a great deal of successful reconstruction. The temple took 15 years to build and was modified throughout that time. Transfer to Luxor airport to fly back to Cairo with direct transfer to your ship Alexandria port
