On this tour we’ll visit two of the most spectacular temples in Egypt, the Luxor Temple and Karnak, separated by the Avenue of the Sphinxes, three kilometres long.
Having picked you up from your hotel or the boat where you’re staying at 7 pm, we’ll make our way to the east bank of Luxor, known to the ancient Egyptians as Thebes, capital of Egypt during the pharaonic period.
Our first stop will be the Temple of Karnak, the largest in all Egypt. Its perimiter stretches for 2,400 metres, dominating the landscape of Luxor. Borne out of the splendour of the New Kingdom, it was constructed at the behest of 67 pharoahs over more than 2,000 years, finally being dedicated to the sun god Ra.
Out second stop will be the Luxor temple, the most important monument in the city and the second largest temple after Thebes. Here too, various Pharoahs had a hand in its construction, including Ramses II, Ramses III and Amenhotep II, finally being finished in the 20th century B.C., being dedicated to the god Amun.
The tour then will finish again at the hotel or boat where you are staying.
