Discover some of the best conserved funeral monuments of the New Kingdom on this tour, visiting the burial site of Ramses III and the necropolis of the nobles and artisans.
We'll pick you up from your hotel first thing in the morning, making our way to the west bank of Luxor, where you can find the necropolis of ancient Thebes.
Our first stop will be Medinet Habu, where the burial temple of Ramses III can be found, one of the city's most important religious monuments. Its entrance is 63 metres wide and 22 metres tall, and bears a representation of the pharoah himself punishing some prisoners.
The tour will continue to the Valley of the Nobles, where you can find more than 500 tombs belonging to the members of the Egyptian aristocracy. We'll take a look inside a number of the tombs to admire their decoration: having been less attractive to grave robbers, they tend to be much better preserved then the royal tombs.
Our final stop will be Deir el-Medina, an egyptian town founded by Thutmose I as homes for the workers and areasans of Ancient Egypt. For over 450 years this town was populated by the builders and decorators of the royal tombs, and you can still see archaeological evidence of this, making it one of the most studied towns from the peroid.
The tour then finishes back at your hotel or the boat where you are staying.
