On this excursion we'll visit the most famous necropolis of the ancient Thebes, where you can find the tombs of pharaohs such as Tutankhamun, Ramses II, Ramses III, Set I and queens such as Nefertari.
Having picked you up at your hotel or boat where you're staying first thing in the morning we'll leave the centre of the city behind, making our way to the east bank, where you can find the famous necropolis.
Our first stop will be the Valley of the Kings, the giant necropolis containing more than 60 tombs excavated in the rocks. The first king to be buried here was Thutmose I, making it the place of rest for important kings such as Tutankhamun, Ramses II, Ramses III and Set I. During the visit we'll see the most spectacular of their tombs.
Leaving the Valley of the Kings behind we'll head to the Valley of the Queens, where you can find the tombs of princesses and wives of the Pharaohs of the New Kingdom. Among the tombs, you can visit is that of Nefertari, the favourite wife of Ramses II (although the entry fee to this tomb is not included).
Our next stop will be the Temple of Hatshepsut, dedicated to the only woman who ruled over Egypt for an extended period of time. One of the architect Sennenmut's creations, the Hatshepsut Temple is unique, partly carved from rock, and partly made up of terraces.
Back in Luxor, we'll make one last stop at the Colossi of Memnon, two giant stone statues which represent the Pharoah Amenhotep III relaxed, looking out over the Nile and the rising sun.
The tour then finishes, back at the hotel or boat where you're staying.
