Explore the Valley of the Kings
Explore the Valley of the Kings

You will be picked up from your hotel, Nile cruise or the airport by one of Gem Explore's Egyptologists. You'll cross to the West bank, where you will visit the Valley Of The Kings. There, you will see the beautifully painted royal tombs at the Valley of Kings. For over a thousand years, the kings, queens, and nobles of the New Kingdom (1500-1070 B.C.) were buried in this valley, which is the world's most magnificent burial ground. During our excursion at the Valley of kings, you'll visit the temple of Deir El-Bahri, which means in Arabic, the “Temple of the Northern Monastery”.

Next, you can visit Hatshepsut's temple. Hatshepsut (c.1473–1458 BC), the queen who became Pharaoh, built a magnificent temple at Deir al-Bahari, on the west bank of Luxor. The temple consists of three levels each of which has a colonnade at its far end. The temple’s walls are covered with beautiful painted reliefs depicting temple rituals, religious festivals, and even the transportation of obelisks from the quarry to their destination in Karnak Temple. Perhaps most interesting are the reliefs in the portico on the so-called Middle Platform.

Its 250 acres of temples and chapels, obelisks, columns, and statues were built over 2,000 years. It visualizes Egyptian art and architecture into a great historical monument of stone.
