Full description
Spend the day touring the west bank of Luxor with a specialized, private guide and in the comfort of an air-conditioned vehicle. Discover the fascinating history of the Egyptian Pharaohs and learn about the daily lives of the inhabitants of the Nile. 

The day starts early with pickup from your accommodation in Luxor. The first stop of the day is the Valley of the Kings, where you will learn about Ramesses VI, the only son of Ramesses III and Queen Isis. Learn about Ramesses VI's 8-year rule and the accession of Ramesses VII to the throne. 

Next, journey to the Valley of the Monkeys, a closed mountainous region where great kings of the Pharaoh's era are buried. Visit the tomb of  King Tutankhamun, which retains its treasures to this day. Learn the legends of King Tutankhamun, from his reign to his discovery by the English scientist, Howard Carter.

Stop for lunch at a local restaurant before continuing to the tomb of Queen Nefertari, which is the largest and most prominent cemetery in the Valley of the Queens. Extravagantly embellished by Ramses the Great, you will marvel at the colorful and well-preserved inscriptions depicting the Queen's life and death.  

A trip to Luxor would not be complete without a visit to Deir el-Medina, one of the best-preserved ancient settlements in the whole of Egypt. Learn about the lives of the workers who built the temples of the most famous kings and travel back in time exploring the shrines, tombs, and museums. At the end of the tour, hotel drop-off will be provided in Luxor.
