Our tour guide will pick you up from you hotel or your Nile cruise to start a half day tour to the West Bank of Luxor. The West Bank at Luxor is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. It is much more than what we refer to as the Valley of the Kings, though many have called the whole of the area by that name. In fact, many good books on the west bank at Luxor (ancient Thebes) are titled,"Valley of the Kings", even though they cover the entire area. It can be a bit confusing for the novice, particularly considering the actual conceptual scope of the religious concept. If one looks at just the Valley of the Kings, one only sees tombs, but the tombs were an integral part of larger mortuary complexes. Indeed the whole west bank is honeycombed with tombs, not just of the ancient Egyptian Kings, but of their families and the oblemen who served them. Also you will visit Hatshepsut Temple ( Deir el-Bahari ). Which was built by Queen Hatshepsut, daughter of Thutmosis I, who ruled Egypt about 20 years during the 18th Dynasty (approximately from 1490 to 1469 B.C), the only pharaonic woman who reigned ancient Egypt. and visit the two colossal statues of Amenhotep III (Colossi of Memnon). After you finish your day tour, we will transfer you back to your hotel in Luxor.
