Luxor Day Trip From Safaga Port By Road

Luxor Day Trip From Safaga Port By Road

You will begin your Luxor day tour from Port Safaga by road when you meet your guide at Port Safaga. Enjoy your transfer to Luxor by air-conditioned vehicle. Once you reach Luxor, you will commence your Luxor day tour from Port Safaga. Explore the Karnak Temples. 

The Karnak Temples:

Karnak Temple is the world’s largest religious complex. It encompasses over 300 acres. Many generations of pharaohs shared the temple construction. The construction began in the time of Senwosret I in around 2000 BC and ended in 343 BC after Nectanebo II’s death.

The complex main temple is dedicated to Amun, and two small temples are dedicated to his consort Mut, and to his son Khonsu. There is a huge Sphinx avenue that connects Karnak Temple to Luxor Temple, used in the Opet festival, to take Amun’s golden statue to Luxor Temple to confirm the pharaoh’s kingship.
 

Valley of the Kings: 

Enjoy your lunch at a local restaurant, then your Luxor day tour from Port Safaga takes you to the 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.

Egyptian tombs in Ancient Egypt suffered a lot from grave robbery. New Kingdom pharaohs tried to conceal their graves from the grave robbers, deciding to avoid constructing pyramids and to cut their graves deep within the mountain instead.

The Valley of the Kings up until August 2020 contains 65 tombs. The first pharaoh who cut his tomb in the site was Tuthmosis I (1506-1493 BC) of the 18th Dynasty, while Ramses XI (1107-1078 BC) of the 20th Dynasty was the last pharaoh to be buried in the Valley of the Kings.

You are permitted to visit 3 tombs out of 10 tombs that are open 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:

From the Valley of the Kings to Hatshepsut Temple. 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.

Her temple is also unique amongst 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 Luxor day tour from Safaga Port at the Colossi of Memnon. The Colossi of Memnon are two colossal statues of the pharaoh Amenhotep III, they stood originally in front of his temple’s main entrance, “The millions of years of pharaoh Amenhotep III”. A massive 27 BC earthquake hit the colossi which caused some cracks in the statues. At dawn, dew goes down into the cracks and is used to make noises when the wind blows down. The Greeks heard these noises and thought these noises to be the voice of Agamemnon’s mother who mourns him. From that time, the colossi were wrongly called Memnon.
Your lovely Luxor day tour from Safaga came to an end, so it is the time to take your transfer back to your cruise ship at Safaga Port.
