Valley of the Kings

We will move on to enjoy the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, the daughter of Thutmos I, who ruled Egypt about 20 years during the 18th Dynasty (approximately from 1490 to 1469 BC). She was the only pharaonic woman in Ancient Egypt’s history
Lunch at one of our local restaurant
Then you will visit Karnak Temple, the greatest example of worship in ancient history dedicated to the god Amon, his wife Mut and their son Khonsu. It was constructed from the beginning of the Middle Kingdom till the Greco-Roman Kingdom times.
Then we will head to Luxor Temple. It was started by Amenhotep III in during the New Kingdom time and completed by Ramses II. King Ramses II was the most famous king in the 19th Dynasty. He ruled Egyptian Kingdom for about 67 years. The temple was dedicated to the great god Amun-Ra, his wife Mut and their son Khonsu.
At the end of the day, you will transfer back to your hotel for check in and overnight.
Breakfast box from your hotel and then start your day tour: Abydos is one of the most ancient cities of Egypt and considered as one of the most valuable archaeological sites. Discover the Temple of Seti I with its well preserved, still partly colored reliefs, and have a look at the famous Abydos King List of the ancient kings who reigned before Seti. The List will start with Menes, the first pharaoh of the united Egypt, and end with Ramses I, Seti’s father. Except for some pharaohs that were to be banished from people’s memories, the list is considered to be a complete enumeration of Ancient Egypt’s rulers and therefore, a precious clue for Egyptologists.
After that we will visit the Osireion, a part of Pharaoh Seti I Temple, which was built to honor the god Osiris and, according to the myth, contained his head. Not far from Seti I‘s Temple you will see a temple built by his son Ramses II, not as well preserved, yet still interesting, as it shows the battles of this pharaoh, maybe the greatest and most powerful man in all the history of the Egyptian Empire, in detailed reliefs.
After lunch we will head to the second of the tour’s destinations: Dendera. It’s an impressive Ptolemaic temple, dedicated to the goddess Hathor, and one of the best-preserved sanctuaries all over Egypt.
