Excursions - Luxor

Luxor is the archaeological mecca of Egypt with an abundance of monuments of ancient Egyptian architecture. It is a must-see for all Egyptian tourists.
This architectural complex is a real open-air museum. Numerous objects of art attract the attention of connoisseurs of culture and history from all corners of the planet. In place of the modern city was formerly the capital of the ancient Egyptian kingdom.
The unbridled Nile divided Luxor into two parts. The first of them was used for the construction of monumental complexes – Karnak and Luxor temples. Now there is also a historical museum, as well as a museum of mummification. The second half of the city is characterized by a rich collection of historical monuments, including the Colossi of Memnon, temples of ancient Egyptian deities, as well as the tombs of kings and queens. Such an amazing complex is very difficult to see in one day, so the tour will be designed so that you will be able to see most of the local sights.
Perhaps it is here that you will discover all the secrets that continue to hide ancient Egypt. If you are attentive, the tourist will definitely be revealed various amazing finds that have been hidden from people for more than a thousand years. If the fate of the discoverer does not attract you, then Luxor will surely find something else to surprise you.

  • Your program:

  • Colossi of Memnon

The start of the tour is usually at dawn. Hurghada is separated from Luxor by about 260 kilometers, which can be overcome in just 4 hours. During this time, travelers will be in the cabin of a comfortable bus, which will provide them with all the conditions for sleep or other activities.
The first point on the way of tourists will be the Karnak temple complex, which acts as one of the most majestic Egyptian monuments. There is no reason to talk long about its beauties, because it is always better to see them yourself. The structure has a monumental character and is a reflection of the power of the ancient kingdom. The complex today remains one of the largest in the world, and its construction took place over 2000 years.
When the tour of this amazing complex will be completed, you can go to the other side of the Nile, where the “city of the dead”. The journey from one half of the city to the other is already an adventure, as you will have to cross the second longest river on the planet. The tour starts with the Colossi of Memnon. These majestic statues are 20 meters high and weigh 700 tons each.

They have long attracted the attention of tourists, impressing with their massiveness. It is worth noting that the statues were here relatively recently, and earlier they were installed in the funeral temple of Amenhotep III, now destroyed.
But one should not think that the colossi are silent. A devastating earthquake in the first century AD caused the upper part of the right statue to break off. Since then, the remaining fragment of the giant has been emitting an unusual sound, which, if you listen closely, resembles a human voice. This made the monument incredibly popular in ancient times – many pilgrims went to it to listen to the “overthrown god”.

Next, the guide will direct the tour to the Valley of the Czarits. Its sights are numerous and no less striking. There are 79 open tombs, as well as temples, the most popular among which is the complex of Queen Hatshepsut. The temple can easily take a place among the most unique complexes on the planet, because it was cut directly into the rock and complemented by various statues and colorful images. Detailed scenes from the life of the queen will excite the imagination of everyone who was lucky enough to see them. A tour of this temple alone is worth a trip to Luxor during your stay in Egypt.
The final stage of the trip takes place at the alabaster factory, where tourists will have the opportunity to learn the secrets of making souvenirs, as well as to buy them if desired. After that, the busy day comes to an end and it is time to return to the no less exotic Hurghada by sightseeing bus.
