Itinerary:

Your Golden Pyramid Representative will meet you at your Cruise Ships exit door holding a sign with you name on. You will then travel by air-conditioned vehicle to begin your Tour starting with Karnak Temple

You will begin your Tour with a visit to the Holy City Thebes at Karnak Temple which was dedicated to the Trinity of God Amon which included Amen, Mut & Khonsu. Construction of these Temples began in the Middle Kingdom through to the Greco/Roman period but the golden age of this complex was in the New Kingdom because all the Kings and Queens contributed to its construction 

You will then continue to Luxor Temple, the residence of God Amon in his human shape and the place where Ancient Egyptian celebrated the Opet Festival. Construction work began in the Reign of King Amenhotep III in the 14th century B.C., in the 19th Dynasty King Ramses II made great architectural additions including the first open court and the first pylon.  Alexander the Great also put his own stamp  on this Temple

You will have the opportunity to sample some local cuisine at a local Restaurant for lunch and then continue on to the City of the Dead situated on the West Bank of the River Nile. Here you will visit King Amenhotep III; these Statues are all that remain from the Funerary Temple of King Amenhotep III. Their original measurement with the crown was around 31 metres and weight was more than 700 tonne. In 37 B.C a huge Earthquake caused the statues to fall and break, they have been reconstructed as best they can. Their well-known name is the Colossi of Memnon

Your next Tour stop will be at the Valley of the Kings; the final resting place of the New Kingdom Kings for more than 500 years. The site contains 63 tombs and chambers carved into the rock mountain and are beautifully decorated with scenes from Egyptian Mythology and beliefs. Here you will visit 3 tombs

You will continue on to visit the stunning Temple of Hatshepsut Temple at El Deir El Bahary, this Temple design is dramatically different with a tripartite floor plan. This makes the Memorial Temple of Hatshepsut a very unique and beautiful masterpiece designed by her Majestys’ architect Senenmut, he very cleverly used ramps, terraces and colonnades

At the conclusion of your Tour no later than 6pm your Tour Guide will accompany you to Safaga Port to rejoin your Cruise Ship
