    Pass By: Luxor Travels, 3 Al Qarna Rd 3, Al Qarna Rd, Luxor 85951 Egypt

    Enjoy an unforgettable day exploring the mysteries of ancient kings and queens, such as King Tutankhamun, the most famous king in the world. This young king from the New Kingdom was around 10 years old when he ascended the throne and died when he was only 19. You will get the chance to be face to face with his royal mummy in his tomb in the Valley of the Kings. Also, visit other important royal tombs in the Valley of the Kings and Queens, such as the Tomb of Queen Nefertari which is currently open for a limited time and for limited visitors only. Your Egyptologist tour guide will be with you to take you back in time to unveil the mysteries of these famous royals.

    In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel in central Luxor or harbor by an air-conditioned vehicle for a full guided trip of about 6 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 of course the Tomb of King Tut. The tomb of Tutankhamun is the only tomb in 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. This queen was an ancestor of King Tutankhamun and belonged to the same dynasty.

    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. He was the father of King Akhenaten and grandfather of King Tut.

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

    This tour includes a qualified Egyptologist tour guide, transport by air-conditioned vehicle, all entrance fees for the mentioned sites, hotel pick up and drop off.
