VIP-Two day trip to Luxor
VIP-Two day trip to Luxor excursion in detail:
We will get you directly to our VIP-two day trip to Luxor from your hotel door in the morning, where our guide is going to carry a sign with your name on, in your hand.
On our way to Luxor, along the Nile, you can already get an impression of the Egyptian countryside, and the life of various towns and villages in Upper Egypt; And of course we will do stop when you need it.
When we reach our destination, we will first of all show you during our VIP-two day trip to Luxor the unique Karnak temple, which is certainly one of the most extraordinary temples – and there is probably not a place in Egypt that is more impressive than Karnak. It is the largest complex ever built by humans and it represents the total feats over many generations of builders. Karnak temple consists essentially of three main temples as well as lesser closed temples and several outer temples, located approximately. Three kilometers north of Luxor on 100ha land, and it is still in an incredibly good state, even though it has stood for thousands of years – so with a bit of imagination, you will easily find yourself back in the past, then the temple stood in all its splendor. You will have some time to walk around where you can visit the entrance area and get an idea of how the huge pylons were built. Walk down through the Sfinks Avenue, where on both sides are rows of Kriosfinkser (Sfinks with a bettor), experience hypostylhallen with its more than 100 large but well preserved pillars, admire the hieroglyphs and paintings, visit the Holy Lake, and take a look at the Various chapels, temples and statues. And if you like, you can find the Holy scarab close to the lake, and if you walk around it three times, clockwise – then say the legend that the descendants are going to follow…!
After enjoying lunch at a local restaurant, we will drive to the hotel to check in and you will have some time to see the city on your own. In the afternoon during our VIP-two day trip to Luxor we pick you up again and we will ride a horse-riding trip through the city, where we look at the modern Luxor with the fine houses and shops, as well as the old quarters with their narrow streets and market. We finish the ride at the Holy Luxor Temple, where you will not only experience the Pharaohs ruins – also Alexander the great, the Romans and the early Christians made their mark on this place and expanded, modified, and modified the old buildings according to their needs, or erected new buildings. You will also not avoid the Muslim touch – a mosque stands in Ramses II mansion.
After this interesting day during our VIP-two day trip to Luxor, we drive back to the hotel, where we will dine, and spend the evening and night.

After an early breakfast, we will get you to take the trip to the West Bank, where our first stop is the famous Valley of the Kings, where the ancient Egyptians buried their kings, and officials, for 500 years, and where the mummies of the most famous and glamorous people from The pharaohs time is found. From the 18th To the 20th century. Dynasty left the Kings of burial in Memphis built their tombs in Thebes. Here you can walk down into the tombs of the Egyptian rulers, and experience the well-preserved colorful paintings and stories written with hieroglyphics on the walls. The king’s formal names and titles are inscribed in his tomb, along with pictures of him.
Then we are now ready for another highlight – the Hatshepsuts temple. She was one of the most fascinating rulers of ancient Egypt, a female pharaoh who proved her ability to reign successfully over an empire, and finally she also created an architecturally extraordinary mortuary temple for herself, with three terraces separated by colonnades, a hypostylhal and many statues, paintings and reliefs. A avenue of trees and Sphinx led up to the temple, and ramps lead you from one terrace to the next. The colonnades and paintings on the lower terrace are completely out a proportions compared to what else can be seen in the rest of the building. They were restored in 1906 to protect the famous reliefs that depict the transportation of the obelisks to Karnak, as well as Queen Hatshepsuts birth. The reliefs on the south side of the Middle Terrace show the Queen’s expedition to the country Punt, the country that was known for incense.
Now it’s time for a little break from the many tales of ancient Egypt while we visit a alabaster factory where it is possible to see how to make things in alabaster, as well as buy some souvenirs.
After lunch at a local restaurant, we make stays at the 3,400 year old Memnon behemoths, the huge statues of Amenhotep III, which once stood guard in front of his, now non existent, Vally temple, which was once greater than the Karnak temple, after which we run across the Nile to East bank, and go back to your hotel after our VIP-two day trip to Luxor.
