Known as the ancient city of Thebes, Luxor was the capital of the New Kingdom of Ancient Egypt built by the pharaohs Amenhotep III and Ramses II. An archaeological center of great relevance where you can find the pillars of the famous temples of Luxor and Karnak, linked together by an avenue of sphinxes and considered a world heritage by UNESCO. Dedicated to the god Amun, you can expect to see columns, obelisks, bas-reliefs and calendars sculpted in the rock. It is also where the mysterious sculpture of an Egyptian beetle is found, which legend suggests has the power to grant wishes. The Luxor area also includes other renowned places of interest such as the Valley of the Kings, the ancient necropolis where the pharaohs of Ancient Egypt were buried. One of the most important findings was the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922. A few meters away is the Valley of the Queens, where the funeral chamber of Nefertari was found. Finally, on a trip to Egypt and Luxor you should not miss the Colossi of Memnon, two stone sculptures on the banks of the Nile that represent Amenhotep III.
“ ‘Just back from our ‘Land of the Pharaohs’ holiday and we had an awesome time. All of the guides and Reps were superb - very professional and they all spoke excellent English.’
“'We were lucky enough to have the guide, Khalid, to ourselves throughout the trip and found him to be extremely informative and knowledgeable about the country and also very good with time-keeping and ensuring that the tour ran smoothly. The guides were also thoughtful about the heat and also about the best way to see the sites before the crowds. We visited a great variety of Jordan’s most stunning sights, including iconic Petra, which we enjoyed walking around, even climbing up to the vantage point which gave us a great birds-eye view of the ancient city.'
“‘The meet and greet was spot on and the guide and driver were very good and commendable.’
