Day 3:

An early morning and after breakfast, continuation our touring in Luxor by visiting the West Bank - Valley of the Kings: the remote, barren. It was the necropolis of the New Kingdom pharaohs. By digging their tombs deep into the Theban Hills, pharaohs from Tuthmosis I on hoped to stop robbers stealing the priceless possessions buried with them. Valley of the Queens: Named by Champollion, it lies to the south-west of the Valley of the Kings and holds the tombs of many royal wives and children. Of the nearly 80 tombs populating the Valley, the most famous is that of Queen Nefertari. Hatshepsut Temple: Against its stark mountainous backdrop, the partly rock-hewn Mortuary Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir al-Bahri is a breath-taking sight. Colossi of Memnon: the two enthroned statues of Amenhotep III are the first monuments most visitors see on arriving in the West Bank.

 

Day 4:

After breakfast, transfer to bid farewell to the land of the pharaohs.
