Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Valley of the Kings, Luxor City, Luxor 85511 Egypt

In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel in central Luxor or harbor by an air-conditioned vehicle for a full guided trip of about 8 hours. First you will be transported to the Necropolis of Thebes, the Valley of the Kings on the West Bank of Luxor. This ancient necropolis is a must-see for Luxor travelers.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Tomb of Ramses III, Valley of the Kings West Bank, Luxor Egypt

The tomb of Ramesses III, designated as KV 11, is a complex system in the Valley of the Kings. It has been known since antiquity,the wonderful decorations include colourful painted sunken reliefs featuring the traditional ritual texts (Litany of Ra, Book of Gates etc) and Ramses before the gods. Unusual here are the secular scenes, in the small side rooms of the entrance corridor, showing foreign tributes, such as highly detailed pottery imported from the Aegean, the royal armoury, boats and, in the last of these side chambers, the blind harpists that gave the tomb one of its alternative names: ‘Tomb of the Harpers’

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Tomb of Merenptah, Valley of the Kings West Bank, Thebes, Luxor Egypt

In Egyptian mythology, Ptah is the demiurge of Memphis, god of craftsmen and architects. In the or simply in its falcon form of the new deity, began to be placed in tombs to accompany and protect the dead on their journey to the West of Luxor .Tomb 8, which is located in the Valley of the Kings, was the burial place of the Pharaoh Merneptah and is the model of royal tombs Merneptah was a son of Ramesses II and Queen Isis-Nofret.the tomb was discovered by Howard Carter in 1903. Of coursethere is a material decrease in the number of lateral rooms, and a dramatic increase in the height of the corridors and rooms. He did away with the jogged axis used since the time of Horemheb and instead built the entire tomb on a single axis. Also, for the first time, the entrance was made considerably wider than earlier tombs .

Duration: 20 minutes

Pass By: Tomb of Ramases IX, Valley of the Kings., Luxor Egypt

Tomb of King Ramesses lx was the third pharaoh of the Twentieth Dynasty of the New Kingdom of Ancient Egypt. His name prior to assuming the crown was Amonhirkhopshef.

The tomb has so much colour and detail even the ceiling above the sarcophagi with its goddess Nut stretching across the space. The sarcophagus is one of the largest in the valley, even though some of the paintings have deteriorated this is one of the most decorated.

Stop At: Tomb of Ramses IV, Valle de Los Reyes, Luxor Egypt

The tomb of Ramses IV (KV 2) in the Valley of the Kings is rather different than most other tombs built here. This tomb is by far the most spectacular of the other tombs you will see. The hieroglyphics on the wall depict scenes from the Litany of Ra, Book of the Dead, Book of Caverns, the Book of the Heavens, Book of Amduat, and the Book of the Night. The blue and white colors on the walls inside the burial chamber are very vibrant and you can see the king's sarcophagus made of rose-colored granite. There is also a beautiful scene of goddess Nut on the ceiling, where she is depicted swallowing the sun, and it traveling through her stomach, for Nut to give birth to it.

The tomb has so much colour and detail even the ceiling above the sarcophagi with its goddess Nut stretching across the space. The sarcophagus is one of the largest in the valley, even though some of the paintings have deteriorated this is one of the most decorated.

My husband and I rarely do guided tours. We always prefer to explore on our own. But logistics can be tricky and guidebooks for Egypt tend to have gaps. Ragab was the perfect guide for us! He picked us up early, took us to the sites we wanted to see, gave us tips on interesting elements to keep an eye out for, let us explore and answered any questions we had. I would recommend this tour to anyone, but especially those who might be thinking about going it alone. Take the tour, enjoy the ride, still get to do exactly what you want! Ragab was fantastic and really took great care of us!

This was a great tour! The tour guide was amazing and so nice!

Helpful tip - they make you buy an extra ticket to take pictures but don't buy it and just snap some pictures when the guards aren't looking.

Ragab was a wonderful guide to the valley of the Kings. I got the ticket for three tombs. Ragab suggested Ramses III, Ramses IV, and Ramses IX. I was not disappointed. Excellent day.

We had an amazing tour to the Valley of the Kings with Rajab as our tour guide. He was very informative and considerate of our needs. He made sure our elderly mother was coping with the terrain and let us know which tombs were best for her to enter. Thanks for a great tour Rajab.

Luxor Travels is far the best company in Luxor. My tour guide Ragab was incredible. His knowledge and passion for Egypt made me love being there even more. I suggest that everyone goes to egypt at some point in their life. The community and the amazing people make you feel at home. Amazing country!
