Full Day Tour to the Best Royal Tombs and Temples in Luxor

Tour Itinerary

Detailed program

In the morning you will be picked up from your Luxor hotel by an air-conditioned vehicle for a full guided trip of about 8 hours.
First you will be transported to the Necropolis of Thebes, the Valley of the Kings on the West Bank of Luxor. This ancient necropolis is a must-see for Luxor travelers. There you visit four royal tombs, including the Tomb of Ramses, the Tomb of Horemheb, the Tomb of Merenptah and the Tomb of King Tut. The tomb of Tutankhamun is the only tomb in the Valley of the Kings that was discovered nearly intact in 1922. The discoverer of his tomb was Howard Carter. Tut's famous golden mask is on display at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, but here you have the opportunity to be amazed at the royal mummy of the young king.
After visiting the tombs you will be transported to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut (Deir el Bahari), the only woman ever to reign over Egypt as pharaoh.

Next stop is the Tomb of Queen Nefertari in the Valley of the Queens. She was one of the most famous queens in ancient times, equal with Nefertiti and Cleopatra, and she was the beloved wife of King Ramses the Great. To express his love for her, King Ramses built for her the most beautifully decorated and splendid tomb of all tombs in the Valley of the Queens.
Afterwards, you will be taken to see the Colossi of Memnon, the two largest ancient statues in Egypt which date back to the era of King Amenhotep III.

After lunch at a restaurant with Nile view in the West Bank, you visit Karnak Temples on the East Bank of Luxor. There you can admire the Hypostyle Hall, Obelisks of Queen Hatshepsut and Tutomosis I, the Temple of Amon, the Granite Scarbeus of Amenophis III and the Sacred Lake.

After touring the sites you will be transferred back to your hotel by an air-conditioned vehicle.
