1. Luxor: West Bank Private Tour and Felucca Ride
Start your day with pickup from your hotel or cruise ship. Hop in an air-conditioned car with your guide and visit the west bank of Luxor. Your guide will tell you the history of Egyptian civilization, as you make your way to the Valley of the Kings. This site was built for the tombs of the pharaohs and nobles of the state and was known as the Great Royal Funerary City. Visit the tomb of Queen Nefertari, the largest and most prominent cemetery in the Valley of the Queens. Then, see the temple of Queen Hatshepsut, a memorial temple in Deir el-Bahari. Next, visit the city of Habu, which shows the greatness of ancient Pharaonic architecture. Enjoy a short break for lunch in a local restaurant before visiting the Ramsium Temple. The temple includes huge statues of Ramses II, as well as inscriptions and decorations. See the great statue of Memnon, which is all that remains of a temple in memory of the Pharaohs. At the end of your tour, take a beautiful felucca tour on the Nile, while enjoying some tea. After, your guide will transfer you back to your hotel or cruise ship.
