Luxor is the capital of ancient Egypt during its most glorious period of the New Kingdom. It is befittingly referred to as the world’s biggest outdoor museum. We will spend the next 3 days here exploring its amazing archaeological treasure. We start with Luxor Temple, one of the best examples of the great archaeological marvel of that era.
We spend a full day at the West Bank today.
Explore the Valley of the Kings and Queens. Admire the exquisites ancient art works on the murals of the tombs of Pharoah such as Seti I , Ramses V & VI and King Tut as well as Queen Nefetari. You will also visit Queen Hatsheput Temple and the Colossi of Memnon.
This morning, we visit the Temple of Hathor and the complex at Dendera, one of the best-preserved ancient Egypt monuments. In the afternoon, dwell deeper into history in the Luxor Museum.
Our luxurious Nile Cruise, Historia welcome us today with an evening cocktail. And tonight, we are treated to the Light & Sound show at Karnak Temple.

Another “wow” experience today.
Take an excursion by flight to Abu Simbel. The colossus statues of Ramses II and Nefatari set by the lake is indeed a sight to behold. This is also perhaps UNESCO most amazing effort to save a monument.
