We will pick you up from your hotel in Hurghada and an Egyptian guide will take you in an air-conditioned bus to Luxor Excursions from Hurghada to visit the Dendera Temple dedicated to the goddess Hathor - a cow-headed woman and the goddess of love. The temple is dated to the year 125 BC. It is also unique because the roof of the building is still intact and visitors can admire the breathtaking ceiling at any time. In addition to the hours of the day and the night, it also shows the journey of the sun, the moon and the stars in the sky. One of the ceiling paintings shows the individual zodiac signs. That being said, in this temple is the only image of Queen Cleopatra and her son Caesarian.
Afterwards you will visit the Valley of the Queens, which is considered the home of the women and children of the Pharaohs. It is precisely for this purpose that the tombs in the Valley of the Queens have been created. In addition to many queens are also numerous princes and princesses of the higher society. The valley is located near the better known Valley of the Kings and directly opposite Thebes (today's Luxor). The rather fallow area was chosen because of their seclusion but also their proximity to the capital. Today, it is believed that there are more than 70 tombs, all richly decorated. The valley was created during the reign of Ramses I. Afterwards we drive you back to your hotel in Hurghada.

    My fave part of Egypt was this trip! better than the pyramids! It was a long drive but very well worth it. The hieroglyphics were amazing! Walking into the tombs, a boat ride on the Nile, etc. and the information and stories we were told were incredible.

  • Petra

    We had a fantastic day on our trip to Luxor and valley of the kings etc. In our opinion, it was well worth the long journey from Hurghada and we visited so many wonderful sites, with free time at each, as well as a lovely tour guide. We would recommend this trip very much.

  • Frank Jones

    if you take the temples as a whole there are not temples in Egypt that hold a candle to Abydos and Dendera when it comes to colour, detail and preservation. Dendera Temple for example is complete in detail not only inside but on every inch of the outside walls also. Our tour guide and the transportation, very comfortable, made our day tour absolutely amazing.

    I visited Abydos and Dendera in a 1-day guided private car tour. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable, It was a comfortable 3-hour ride between Hurghada and Luxor. Highly recommended!!!
