Take a trip to the Valley of the Kings in Luxor and learn about the history of ancient Egyptian Kings. Located on the western banks of river Nile, you can explore tombs of pharaohs and other powerful nobles of the New Kingdom. Explore the Queens Valley, a burial ground for the wives of the pharaohs.

Don’t miss out a trip to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, who was the only woman ruler in Pharaonic history. Inside the monument, you’ll come across a series of sculptures that depict the birth and childhood of the queen, and her expedition to the centre of the African continent.

Itinerary

In the morning, you will be picked up in an air-conditioned vehicle from your hotel in Luxor. Accompanied by a guide, you will be taken to the Valley of the Kings or Wadi el-Muluk.

It is a valley in Egypt where tombs were built for the Pharaoh and powerful nobles of the New Kingdom. The valley stands on the west bank of the Nile and consists of two valleys, East and West, with the majority of the royal tombs situated in the East Valley.

Continue to the Queens Valley, a place where wives of the pharaohs were buried in ancient times. It was also known as Ta-Set-Neferu, meaning ‘the place of the children of the Pharaoh’. The valley is located near the Valley of the Kings. Here, along with the queens of the 18th, 19th and 20th dynasties, many princes and princesses were also buried with members of the nobility.

Further on, proceed to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut: Also known as ‘Dier El Bahari’, it was established by Queen Hatshepsut, the only woman who ruled Egypt in the Pharaonic history. As you approach it from the distance, it is as of you are looking at a modern building that has been carved out of a mountain. Dier El-Bahari was commissioned by Queen Hatshepsut as a funerary monument to honour her father, Tutmose I and herself.

After exploring the archaeological sites, you will be dropped back to your hotel in Luxor.
