Trip to the valley of the kings from Hurghada

Enjoy watching the Valley of the Nobles and capture some photos of the burial place of the generals, ministers, and priests  of the new kingdom. See the impressive Colossi of Memnon, the last remains of the Temple of Amenophis III, who was the grandfather of the boy king Tutankhamun.

Valley of the kings includes 64 tombs but just 25 of them belong to kings. There is no doubt that thee tomb of the boy king Tutankhamen is the most famous and more valuable because of the treasures.

Trip To Luxor from Hurghada.

Enjoy your visit to Luxor in a small group of 8 people maximum. Travel in a small deluxe air-conditioned van with a private guide.

Visit Karnak temple which is the biggest complex in the world and the image of Luxor. UNESCO World Heritage Site. This temple is the most important complex in the world and the 2nd most visited place after the pyramids. Karnak is the image and source of history that gave the way to glory of Luxor.

Wonder at the Hypostyle Hall with its 134 massive columns to the Great Festival temple of the god Amun. Watch the two massive obelisks then reach the sacred lake with its holly water.

As soon as you walk closer to the temple, you will walk through the sphinxes avenue, 44 statues of a lion body with a head of a ram, they are symbolizing the provinces of Egypt as 22 in the south (Upper Egypt) and 22 in the north (Lower Egypt). They are made of sandstone, the same quality of stone used for the whole temple. Most of these sphinxes have been restored so they are in a good condition. It is easy to see and recognise the details of the animal face and the art technique.

Valley of the kings

It locates on the west side of Luxor and has two valleys, the east one where most of the tombs are located and the west valley (tomb of Amenhotep III). The Wadi (valley) contains 63 tombs (tomb number 63 was discovered by Otto Schaden and his team in 2005, it is 15 m away from Tutankhamun’s tomb) mostly in good condition.

The royal ones decorated with scenes from Egyptian mythology, rituals, and texts from the book of the dead, the litany of Ra, caverns, and more. The beginning of the place goes back to the 18th dynasty so it includes the tombs of the three dynasties 18th, 19th, and 20th. It was such a target for tomb robbers for centuries so it is clear to see the Egyptian treasures everywhere in the world.

This site became a world heritage site in 1979. In 1922 was such an awesome discovery of the tomb of the boy king Tutankhamen (Tutankhamon) by the British Egyptologist Haward Carter.

Colossi of Memnon

The Memnon colossi are quartz monoliths, 18 meters high. The king is represented sitting on his throne, while his mother Mutemuia and his wife Tiy, much smaller in size, stand beside his legs. The back plinth bears the royal names and titles in large Hieroglyphics. The sides of the cube throne are decorated with the symbolic unification of Upper and Lower Egypt.

highly recommend Luxor

Our small bus was on time and comfortable for a small group of 6 people. The journey was a bit long but in general, was a good choice to visit Valley of the Kings and the Tomb of king Tut.
