Once in Luxor we'll enjoy a visit to the Nobel's tombs and also the temple of Ramses 3rd (HABU Temple).
Following this, see the Colossi of Memnon. Amenhotep III (18th Dynasty) built a mortuary temple in Thebes that was guarded by two gigantic statues on the outer gates. All that remains now are the 75 feet tall, one thousand ton statues of Amenhotep III. Though damaged by nature and ancient tourists, the statues are still impressive.
Next, we're off to the Eastern Bank for a buffet lunch - something for everyone's taste buds!
After lunch, have a visit to the great temples of Karnak, comprised of a vast conglomeration of ruined temples, chapels, pylons, and other buildings.
Of course, we'll include a photo stop at the incredible Luxor temple. The Temple of Luxor was the center of the most important one, the festival of Opet. Built largely by Amenhotep III and Ramesses II, it appears that the temple's purpose was for a suitable setting for the rituals of the festival.
Later back to the pier.
