Day 1: Hurghada to Abydos and Dendera Temples - Luxor
An early breakfast at your Hotel in Hurghada before being collected by your expert English speaking Tour Guide and driver in an air conditioned vehicle to start your journey by road to Abydos (approximately 4 hours. On arrival, your Tour Guide will escort you to the Temple of Abydos which was the head of the God Osiris- the God of the Underworld and part of his body was buried there according to the legend of ancient Egyptians,. In Abydos you will visit the famous Temple of King Seti I – the founder of Abydos Temple which was completed by his son King Ramses II. The beauty of this Temple almost feels like an apology and dedication to the following Gods Osiris, Isis, Horus, Amun Ra, Mut and Khonsu. 
After this, you will continue on to Dendera (approximately 1 hour 15 minutes) to reach Dendera Temple which is dedicated to Goddess Hathor- cow headed woman and known as the Goddess of Love. The Temple dates back to 125 B.C and it is quite unique due to the fact that the roof is still intact and visitors can admire the beautiful ceiling which depicts the hours of the day and night as well as the journey of the sun, moon and the stars across the sky. One of its ceilings is decorated with a plaster cast of the signs of the zodiac. Not only that but this Temple has the only relief which represented Queen Cleopatra and her son Caesarean.
Lunch will be included during the day, then you will drive to Luxor City (approximately 1 hour 20 minutes). On arrival in Luxor, you will check in to your Hotel with free time in the evening to relax or take any optional tours such as the Sound and Light Show at Karnak Temple, or a Kallesh Ride (horse and carriage) into Luxor City and Market. Overnight in Luxor

Day 2: Luxor West Bank Sites - Back to Hurghada
Check out of your Hotel in Luxor after breakfast 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. It has now been restored to its former state by the famous Egyptologist and Archaeologist Dr Zahi Hawass in memory of Howard Carter.Take a fascinating insight into the life of Howard Carter whilst moving around the house with a real Howard Carter lecturing you from a 20 minute film presented by a holographic Howard Carter who transports you back to the time of the discovery and shares the excitement of the opening of the tomb of Tutankhamun. Finally you will be escorted in your air conditioned vehicle for the journey back to your hotel in Hurghada.
