Itinerary

Half Day Tour To Kings Valley, Hatshepsut Temple And Colossi Of Memnon

Your guide will meet you at your hotel to commence your half day tour to Kings Valley. 

Valley of the Kings:

The Valley of the Kings is one of Egypt’s main sights, not only in Luxor, and must be viewed for a better understanding of the nature of religion and the construction of the tomb in Ancient Egypt. Marvel at the intricate tombs carved into the cliffs that served as final resting places for pharaohs of the New Kingdom. Step inside the elaborate burial chambers and witness the vivid colors and enchanting hieroglyphics that adorn the walls.

You are permitted to visit 3 out of 10 tombs that are opened to the public. Your guide will recommend visiting the best 3 of the opened tombs. You’ll be impressed by the nature of the colors, inscriptions, and reliefs of every tomb you visit. Some of the reliefs depict the underworld and the fate of the pharaoh.

Hatshepsut Temple:

Then your tour to Kings Valley takes you to the unique Temple of the Female Pharaoh Hatshepsut.
Hatshepsut was one of the few females in ancient history who ruled Egypt. She ruled for about 20 years, following her brother and husband Tuthmosis II. Her name is immortal because of the temple that we are visiting at Deir El-Bahari in Luxor today. Admire the grand architectural design and learn about the fascinating life of Hatshepsut as you explore the terraces, colonnades, and statues that make this temple a true marvel.

Her temple is also unique amongst the Egyptian temples in its architecture. The temple was built on three terraces and this temple’s main purpose is to honor Hatshepsut as a male pharaoh or king. The temple’s first terrace isn’t open to the public because of its damaged state. On the second terrace, you will find some fascinating stories such as her divine birth from the god Amun and her commercial trip to the land of Punt (modern Somalia). Some of Hatshepsut’s statues represent Osiris in mummy form. On the third terrace, the female feature of Hatshepsut’s face is easy to recognize.

Colossi of Memnon:
You will end your tour to Kings Valley at the Colossi of Memnon for a photo opportunity. The Colossi of Memnon are two colossal statues of pharaoh Amenhotep III, they stood originally in front of his temple’s main entrance, “The millions of years of pharaoh Amenhotep III”. These imposing statues, standing guard for centuries, provide a glimpse into the grandeur of ancient Egypt.
