The Nile Valley and Luxor Feature


Top Reasons to Go

The Valley of the Kings: Follow the storyline of the pharaoh's journey into the afterlife in the images from the Book of the Dead on the walls of a royal tomb.

The Temple of Karnak: Stroll among the columns in the "petrified forest" of the hypostyle hall, which was built as a garden for the gods.

Deir el-Bahri: Step back and absorb the panorama of the multitiered facade at the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut.

A Trip on the Nile: Make the Nile your home for a few days, either on the deck of a traditional wind-powered felucca or in the more comfortable cabin of a luxury river cruiser.

The Temple of Edfu: Admire the architectural perfection of the temple dedicated to Horus; it's the finest surviving Ptolemaic-era building in Egypt.
