Itinerary

Luxor Day Trip From Sharm El-Sheikh By Plane

Your Luxor day trip from Sharm El-Sheikh begins when our driver picks you up from your hotel reception in Sharm El-Sheikh to transfer you to Sharm El Sheikh Airport for a one-hour flight to Luxor. You will meet your guide outside the arrival terminal of Luxor Airport to commence your tour.

Valley of the Kings:

Your first stop of your Luxor day trip from Sharm El-Sheikh will be at 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 the pyramids to cut their graves deep within the mountain instead.
 
The valley of the kings up till 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 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: 
Your next stop of your Luxor day trip from Sharm El-Sheikh will be at 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 her temple that we are visiting at Deir El-Bahari in Luxor today.
 
Her temple is also unique among 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 Hatshepsut.
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:
Next of your Luxor day trip from Sharm El-Sheikh is 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 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.
 
Karnak Temple: 
Enjoy your lunch at a local restaurant. Then your Luxor day trip from Sharm El-Sheikh takes your to Karnak Temple. 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 stopped in 343 BC after Nectanebo II’s death.
 
The complex’s main temple is dedicated to Amun, and two small temples are dedicated to his consort Mut, and to his son Khonsu. A huge sphinx avenue 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.
 
Luxor Temple: 
You will end your lovely Luxor day trip from Sharm El-Sheikh at the majestic Luxor Temple. Pharaoh Amenhotep III (1390-1353 BC) of the 18th Dynasty, and Ramses II (1279-1213 BC) of the 19th Dynasty, built Luxor Temple. Other pharaohs like Horemheb and Tutankhamun left their traces in the temple.
As well as Alexander the Great who had his own chapel inside Luxor Temple. The Romans added a small Roman chapel, now known as a Church today.
 
The Muslims later built a mosque on top of the temple known as the Abu El-Hagag Mosque when the temple was buried in sand and dust. Transfer to Luxor Airport to fly back to Sharm El Sheikh. Transfer to your hotel in Sharm El-Sheikh.
