West Bank Tour

An amazing tour of possibly the most spectacular sights in the world!

We’ll pick you up early morning from your hotel and take you on a drive across the Nile from East to West with you’re first visit to the Valley of the Kings. There’s so much written about these magnificent tombs but nothing can prepare you for when you see them. Marvel at the resting place of the ancient kings including King Tutmosis I, Tutmosis III, Tutankhamen, King Ramssess VI, King Mrenptah and AmonhotepII.

Next is a short drive to uncover a fascinating tale at the nearby Temple of Queen Hatshipsut. This monument was built by Queen Hatshepsut, daughter of Thutmosis I, who ruled Egypt about 20 years during the 18th Dynasty (1490-1469 B.C). Queen Hatshepsut is famous for posing as a male to gain the throne. Her temple is as striking as her story!

Cameras poised, there’s still time to visit at the Colossi of Memnon, which marks the site of the funeral temple of Amenhotep III. Today, two giant statues standing tall and proud on the West Bank are all that remains of the ancient complex and are a truly memorable way to end your tour. Return to your hotel around noon.
