Day 1 : Arrive to Luxor-East Bank Tour

Our Guide will pick you up from your place in Luxor to drive you to the East bank of the ancient Thebes, Karnak temple. This vastest Ancient temple was dedicated to the Theban triad Amun, Mut, and their son Khonsu and was connected to Luxor Temple by a long alley of sphinxes. During more than 2000 years, about thirty Pharaohs have contributed to the construction of the building, making it unique by its size, its degree of elaboration, and the diversity of styles.

End your day with the Luxor temple, this is the perfect time to enjoy the splendor of the Ancient architecture highlighted by the shimmering rays of the setting sun. Enter the site facing the immense pylon of Ramses II, his monumental colossi, and of course the huge obelisk. Here, for the Feast of Opet, used to take place every year the union of Mut and Amun and the rebirth of their son. This ceremony radiated on the Pharaoh, who could thus renew his power above whole Egypt. The site also hosts a roman chapel and a mosque that you can still admire on the top of the ancient columns of the temple.

After finishing, Our guide will escort you back to your hotel

Day 2 : Luxor-West Bank Tour

After your breakfast, start an unforgettable excursion to the West Bank of Luxor. Discover first the valley of the Kings, a symbol of pharaohs’ glory. The site contains 63 tombs excavated in the rock of the mountain, the most famous one is that of King Tutankhamun. Venture inside a royal tomb and examine the colored scenes on the walls, these give you insights into the beliefs and funerary rites of Ancient Egyptian. It’s also a great reminder of the prestige and greatness of the pharaohs.

Continue your visit with the temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Arriving at the site, the impressive cliff will not miss captivating your eyes. But it’s at the foot of this masterpiece of nature that remains the real wonder, Hatshepsut temple. The external architecture matches perfectly with the refined cliff, the building seems to have been sculpted into the rock. Once inside you will notice that many statues and engraving have their face destroyed, your expert guide will explain the strong history behind this.
Reach now the last step of your day, the Colossi of Memnon. Massive, proudly standing, and the gaze fixed toward the Nile, the two colossi of Memnon were the guardians of the vastest and the most sumptuous temple in Egypt, that of Amenhotep.

Once you finish your visit, The guide will take you back to your hotel.

Day 3 : Edfu-Kom Ombo Temples

Check out from your hotel, your guide will pick you up to take the road between Luxor and Aswan to reach these magnificent temples. Located on the West bank of the Nile, the Edfu temple is one of the best-preserved ancient religious sites of Egypt. The Ptolemaic temple was dedicated to the worshiping of the falcon god Horus.
Inside, you can contemplate inscriptions and scenes that give reliable information on the language, traditions, and the cult during the Hellenistic period in Egypt. These walls also hold the legend of the sacred conflict between Seth and Horus who was trying to avenge the murder of his father Osiris.

Continue your trip to Kom Ombo temple. It was dedicated to two gods and that is the reason it was known as « the double temple ». The southern part of the temple was dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek, god of fertility and creator of the world, the northern part was devoted to the falcon god Horus. Proceed inside and observe scenes of cultic liturgies especially tied to this temple. During the Ancient time, Egyptians used to keep crocodiles near the temple. Nowadays the only crocodile that you can see are the mummified ones displayed in The Crocodile Museum.

Continue driving to Aswan, Arriving, and Check-in your hotel.

Day 4 : Abu Simbel

Around 4 am, your guide will pick you up from your hotel in Aswan. You will be driven for 3 hours by private air-conditioned car to Abu Simbel, 290 km south of Aswan.
The two temples you are about to visit are located on the west bank of Lake Nasser, but this is not their original place. Indeed, in order to save these Ancient treasures from the flood, the decision was made to relocate them. Therefore, the temples were entirely moved in 1968, dislocated, and reassembled in a higher area. Nubia was a valuable region for Egyptians because of its gold and other precious goods. Hence, Pharaoh Ramesses II decided to build these two massive temples in order to establish his supremacy upon the Nubians. Visit these two masterpieces with your Egyptologist guide and discover the history of this place and of the great Pharaoh who build them. You will have plenty of time to take memorable photos.
