It has everything under the sun, well almost and is a bubbly place to spend an afternoon in. The Mummification Museum is a different cup of tea, of course, but revealing nonetheless.

And all this in anticipation of an evening walk in the Luxor temple which is magically illuminated at night. Overnight at hotel. (Breakfast)

On our way to the Karnak Temple complex we will pass by the village where the workers, masons and builders lived called Deir el Madina and its temple of Madinet Habu dedicated to Ramses III. You will also not be able to miss seeing the Colossi of Memnon, proud and glorious as they are, representing Amenhotep III.
After lunch, it’s the Karnak Temple complex which is truly a huge spread encompassing temples and obelisks, chapels and pillars, as it brings to life the many pharaohs who contributed in adding to its profusion of buildings.

How can we entice you? What would you like to do? Swim, sun-bathe, take in some fauna and flora with some snorkeling? The bio-diversity of the Red Sea is rich in species, in color and in texture. From the coral reefs to the multicolored rainbow fishes, dropping by a school of dolphins. We have it all.
