Dendera and Abydos Tour from Luxor

Hotel Pick-up

A friendly, professional and extremely knowledgable Egypt Excursions tour guide will pick you up from your Luxor hotel in a comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle for a brilliant day exploring some of Upper Egypt's most significant sights.

Abydos Tour

135km from Luxor lies one of Ancient Egypt's oldest cities - Abydos. Considered one of the most important archaeological sites in Egypt, the sacred city of Abydos was the site of many ancient temples and burial grounds where the great Pharaohs of Ancient Egypt were entombed.

One of Abydos's more significant sights today is the memorial temple of Seti I, with it's walls containing an inscription from the 19th dynasty known as the Abydos King List - a brilliant table containing cartouches of the names of the 76 kings of Ancient Egypt.

Built by King Seti I, and completed by King Ramsess II, the temple of Seti became the centre of worship for the Lord of the Underworld and god of death - Isis and Osiris.

The Mysterious Hieroglyphs in the Temple of Seti I

We know the Ancient Egyptians were well ahead of their time, building the Great pyramids thousands of years ago with such precision that even today they would be a great achievement, as well as reports of amazing technology being employed in them such as electric torches!

Some of the hieroglyphs carved over an arch in the Temple of Seti I have been interpreted in some circles as depicting modern technology such as helicopters, submarines, U.F.O's and battle tanks - leading to the question what else did these amazing people know?

Time for a Delicious Lunch

We'll take a break from our tour to stop of for a delicious lunch in a local restaurant.

From Abydos, regarded as the home of the God of the Underworld, we'll travel back towards Luxor for our tour of Dendera, home to the goddess of love and joy.

Dendera Tour

Located 60km north of Luxor, along the west bank of the River Nile lies the small town of Dendera, although it's not Dendera were her for, its the amazing temples built here around 2613BC when this was the Capital City of Upper Egypt named Nitentori.

Around town you'll notice the the changing face of Egypt throughout history, with Ancient Egyptian culture giving way to Roman influences which can be seen from the time Egypt became a Roman possession, and with it Christianity, and then onto the current named City of Denderah, renamed by the Otterman Empire.

On our tour of Dendera from Luxor we'll visit the best preserved temple complex in all of Upper Egypt - the Temple of Hathor, goddess of love and joy. Surrounded by a massive mud-brick wall, the temple covers an enormous 40,000 square meters and it's foundations can be traces back to 2613 BC, being completed by the Roman emperor Tiberius - regarded as one of Rome's greatest generals.

Back to Luxor

After a brilliant day exploring magnificent temples of Ancient Egypt, we'll travel back to your hotel in Luxor for a good nights rest.
