Exploring the West Bank
Our journey begins as we depart from El Gouna and make our way to Luxor, a city steeped in history and culture. Our first stop is the West Bank, also known as the Theban Necropolis, where countless ancient tombs and temples await us.
We start our exploration at the Valley of the Kings, the final resting place of powerful pharaohs such as Tutankhamun and Ramses II. As we descend into the tombs, we are greeted by intricate wall paintings and hieroglyphics that tell stories of the afterlife and the pharaohs‘ journey to eternity.
Next, we visit the Temple of Hatshepsut, a stunning mortuary temple dedicated to the only female pharaoh of Egypt. The temple’s unique design, nestled against the cliffs of Deir el-Bahari, is a testament to Hatshepsut’s ambition and power.
Our journey continues to the Colossi of Memnon, two massive statues that once guarded the entrance of Amenhotep III’s mortuary temple. These towering statues, though weathered by time, still stand proudly, reminding us of the grandeur of ancient Egypt.

After a delicious lunch at a local restaurant, we cross the Nile River to the East Bank, where more wonders await us. Our first stop is the Karnak Temple Complex, a vast open-air museum that showcases the grandeur of ancient Egyptian architecture. Walk among towering columns, marvel at intricate carvings, and imagine the rituals that took place in this sacred space.
