in the presence of timeless.wonders


The West bank of Luxor (formerly Thebes) is where kings, queens and nobles built tombs and temples during the New Kingdom that lasted from about 1800bc - 1200BC. It represents the height of Egyptian Civilization and yet is a thousand years before foreign occupation by Persians, Romans and Greeks. Yet it's centuries after the great pyramids were built. This civilization is *old*. And we invented everything: writing, the 365-day calendar, bureaucracy, sail boats, paper, irrigation, and apparently bowling. (we are still the world leaders in bureaucracy, The tombs and temples have survived mostly because of the climate, but also because they constructed them to last forever. It's magnificent. More than once today, you will get an emotional, almost teary reaction of being in the presence of something timeless.

A Recent Review of this tour

We took a full day and half day tour with Ahmed. He has a very deep understanding of the sites we saw and ancient Egypt in general. Ahmed provided detailed explanations, promptly responded to emails, and showed up early at our hotel to pick us up. Ahmed also arranged for us to visit the tomb of Queen Nefetari in the Valley of the Queens ( a must-see, even though it is expensive), and had up-to-date knowledge on best times to visit sites, availability of tickets, etc. Highly recommend Ahmed!
