Day 3: Deir El Madina - Asasif Tombs - Howard House

A leisurely breakfast before heading off for the day with your expert Tour Guide to the West Bank stopping at Deir El Madina, an ancient Egyptian village which once belonged and was inhabited by the artisans who worked on the tombs in the Valley of the Kings during the 18th to 20th dynasties. The workmen living there were named ‘Servants in the Place of Truth’.During 1922, archaeologist Bernard Bruyère began excavating the site. This excavation revealed one of the best accounts of community life in the ancient world that spans almost four hundred years.
Moving on to visit and explore the Asasif Tombs next to the Temple of Hatshepsut, not often visited due to lack of visitors not being one of the main publicised sites. The tombs were built for dignitaries during the 25th and 26th Dynasties when Nubian Kings were ruling. Whilst the tombs did not survive in tact of their original structures, there still remains some fine reliefs and paintings.
A break for lunch before your final tour of the day to see the wonderful unchanged history and artifacts of Howard Carter House and Museum.

After this your final stop will be at the Luxor Mummification Museum.The majestic Mummification Museum contains everything you would ever wish to know about mummification.The ancient Egyptians believed that in order for a person to reach the afterlife, it was essential that both their body and their name remained, so their Soul would be transported from one life to the next. In order to achieve this, the mummification rituals were developed to preserve the body. The museum contains several human and animal mummies as well as the tools and the canopic jars needed for the ritual. Transfer back to your accommodations with some free time for shopping in Luxor and optional tours.
