perhaps no city in the world has bequeathed to us more numerous nor mightier monuments than thebes(Luxor).The ancient city stood on both sides of the Nile,and few spots in Egypt are so ideally suited to such a purpose.The range of hills to the east and west curve away from the river bank leaving broad plains on either side.Here marvellous monuments were raised in honour of Amon-Ra.Luxor is a city in Upper (southern) Egypt and the capital of Luxor Governorate. The population numbers 376,022 (1999 survey), with an area of approximately 416 square kilometres (161 sq mi).As the site of the Ancient Egyptan city of Thebes, Luxor has frequently been characterized as the 'world's greatest open air museum', as the ruins of the temple complexes at Karnak and Luxor stand within the modern city. Immediately opposite, across the River Nile, lie the monuments, temples and tombs on the West Bank Necropolis, which include the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens.
We will begin our tour in the appointment that we agreed(mostly, it will be 07.00 am).
We will drive to valley of the kings in the west bank of Luxor.In this valley, you can visit only three tombs per ticket(some tombs reguire additional tickets like the tomb of Tut Ankh Amon).After that,We will visit the mortuary temple of queen Hatshepswt.
We will finish our tour in the west bank by visiting the famous two colossi of Memnon.
Then,we drive back again to the east bank.In the east bank ,we will have enough time for having rest or lunch.
After having rest or lunch,we will visit Karnak temple.Eventually,we will visit Luxor temple.
I hope you have a magnificent tour.
