Luxor to Abu Simbel - by plane






        This trip involves an early start, the flight takes approx 30 minutes and you spend just over one hour at Abu Simbel. A local guide will escort you to see the amazing temples and status all of which had to be moved to ensure they were saved from the rising waters of Lake Nasser in 1968. This in itself was an engineering masterpiece.

The Great Temple of Ramses 11 and the Temple of Hathor built by Ramses 11 are spectacular and one of the best sights Egypt has to offer. Really not to be missed. Please note, the time spent at Abu Simbel is quite short, especially if there are queues at the ticket offices at the site during peak season, if you are keen to spend plenty of time at this wonderful site the coach option should be considered as longer time is available within the programme.Duration: about 4.5 hours


Luxor Museum: Visit along with Karnak or Luxor Temples. This is great because you can see many statues & artifacts from the Karnak & luxor temples & from the tombs including king tuts. There are also 2 Mummies But I forget their names. There are weapons a bed Jewelry & a chariot from the Tomb Of King Tut. Many very well preserved statues of the Pharaohs who built ancient Thebes & its Temples including Thuthmosis 111, Rammeses 1 & 2nd. There is also jewelry & funery itms from other tombs. Very interesting place to visit. Here, on one place the visitor can be interduced to the Egyptian rich history. The buliding is situated on Luxor cornish and it is very easy to find. It has a rather small colection of the itams but of a great importance and all are beautifly displayed.


Medinet Habu

 is the name commonly given to the Mortuary Temple of Ramesses III, an important New Kingdom period structure in the location of the same name on the West Bank of Luxor in Egypt. Aside from its intrinsic size and architectural and artistic importance, the temple is probably best known as the source of inscribed reliefs depicting the advent and defeat of the Sea Peoples during the reign ofRamesses III.



Felucca rides:

must try the felucca. You may choose to visit the Banana Island, Crocodile Island on the other bank, or simply ride in the waters for an hour or two, its really worth it.  the real attraction is anyway the Nile and the view of the west bank, specially at sunset time.
