Itinerary

Get picked up by a professional tour guide from your Luxor hotel who will take you in airconditioned private transportation through picturesque villages to Al Qurna, the ancient town surrounded by temples and tombs.
Visit Deir el-Medina, home to artisans, servants and craftsmen who worked at the royal tombs. The crafts and also the cottages were passed on from generation to generation. Because these were the finest artists, their graves are lavishly decorated with the most beautiful representations of everyday life. From the plateau of the tombs, you will have an excellent overview of the houses and streets of Deir al-Medina. A scale model shows who lived where and when.
Then, head to the mortuary temple of Seti I, whose construction started during his reign but was finalized after his death by his son, Ramses II. Although not as famous as his temple in Abydos, this memorial, located near palm groves, is worth visiting. It is the earliest example of a palace built within a mortuary temple, and beautiful reliefs have survived throughout the ages.
On the way back to the East Bank, you will have the opportunity to take some beautiful pictures of the Colossi of Memnon.
Finally, you will be brought to your Luxor hotel.
Tour ends.
