Itinerary

1. Day: Karnak Temple, Luxor Temple

Would you like to enrich your Hurghada holidays with a trip to the history of ancient Egypt? Discover together with Sempre Travel Egypt some of the most famous Luxor sights on our Hurghada to Luxor trip incl. overnight stay in Luxor. With the pick-up from your accommodation in Hurghada, we start our tour through the beautiful mountain landscape to Luxor East Bank where the

Karnak Temple


is awaiting you. Karnak Temple, probably the largest temple complex in the world, welcomes you with the Sphinx Avenue before you enter the impressive pillared hall. The former much shorter Sphinx Avenue connected the Karnak Temple with the Luxor Temple and is currently being restored with great effort. For this project, some buildings in Luxor Downtown had to be removed and rebuild somewhere else. With the Karnak Temple, you enter a holy place of worship in ancient Egypt. The temple complex consists of several temples and the “Holy Lake”, a place for sacrifice and purification rituals. Our Egyptologist is happy to answer all your open questions about the history of Karnak Temple. After our walk through the impressive temple complex, we take a lunch break in a local restaurant before continuing Tour Luxor with a visit of the

Luxor Temple


Luxor Temple, a coronation temple where the coronation ceremony were held in the time of the Pharaohs of Egypt, is located on the outskirt of the city, directly on the promenade of the Nile River on Luxor East Bank. The construction of the Luxor Temple complex, dedicated to the god Amun, took hundreds of years during the reign of Amenhotep III, Ramses II, and Tutankhamun. In 2001, the World Monuments Fund donated a contribution to the preservation of the Luxor Temple, with which the sandstone fragments, which up until then were in the salty groundwater, were restored. This ensured the preservation of the columns and wall fragments, inscribed with hieroglyphics that tell the story of the pharaohs. We do not leave the Luxor Temple without taking a look at the Luxor West Bank, where we can see the Hatshepsut Temple, one of our Luxor sights for the following day.

After the check-in in your accommodation in Luxor, you have some time to relax or take part in one of our optionally offered Luxor sightseeing tours in the evening, such as the Karnak Sound and Light Show, or how about a traditional Egyptian meal together?

2. Day: Valley of the Kings, Habu Temple, Deir el-Medina

Valley of the Kings 


The impressive sunrise in Egypt is pretty early, so we start our 2nd day of the Luxor sights directly after breakfast with a visit to the famous the Valley of the Kings. Up here in the rock massive, countless tombs were discovered, we will visit 3 of the most beautiful ones today. The breathtaking wall paintings in the tombs tell their stories. You will be amazed how well preserved these drawings, made with natural colors like egg yolks, are. A real masterpiece! There are a lot of things that haven't been discovered in the world-famous valley yet, and on our way to the Valley of the Kings, it's likely to meet one or two archaeologists on the lookout for new discoveries. We leave the Valley of the Kings for our next destination, the  

Habu Temple 


The Habu Temple is a witness of Egypt`s defensive battles against Libyan tribes and various sea people under Ramses III. The reliefs of the mortuary temple, build in Medinet Habu, tell the story of the Pharaoh`s victories. During his reign, the first documented strike in labor history took place, the strike of Deir el-Medina. Workers stopped work during construction of his grave cause of poor working conditions, which indicated economic difficulties at the end of Ramses IIIs reign. During the Christian period, a Coptic church was built within the city walls in one part of Habu Temple and residential houses in the other part. The city itself became abandoned in the 9th century. In order to restore the Habu Temple to its former state, residential buildings were removed in 1859 and remains of the church in 1891. Until today, excavations are still taking place to reconstruct the original state of the Habu Temple. After leaving the site it`s time for a lunch break at Luxor West Bank. After the break, it`s time for our last stop on our Tour Luxor. 

Deir el-Medina - Monastery of the town 


is already waiting for us. Deir el-Medina got its name “Monastery of the town” from the small Hathor Temple north of the workers` settlement, which was inhabited by Coptic monks for a long time. It was formed on Luxor West Bank, former West Thebes, during the reign of Amenhotep I.   

From about 1520 to 1069 BC. Deir el-Medina was inhabited by workers and artists with their families, who created and decorated the tombs of the pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings. The ancient ruins of the settlement provide archaeologists with important information about the life of the people at that time. Their cemeteries, located right next to the settlement, surprise with their excellent wall paintings that are in no way inferior to the royal tombs in terms of perfection. Some of them even surpass those of the noble tombs.   

With many impressions of the Luxor East Bank – Luxor West Bank – Luxor sights 2 Days from El Hurghada we start our way back to your accommodation in Hurghada Hotels.
