Long day, but so very interesting. Hatshepsut Temple, Valley of the Kings, and photo stop at the Colossi of Memnon all fascinating. Great lunch then long drive back to the ship. Exhausting but worth it.

We were a group of 11 which enabled us to see some wonderful sites. First, we went to the Valley of the Kings. We entered two tombs (Ramses the IV and Ramses the IX) and I chose to pay $6 extra to enter King Tut's tomb. What a thrill. Our next visit was to Habu Temple. We had an excellent lunch at the Nile View Restaurant and then took a boat across the Nile to the Temple of Karnak. These ruins are just amazing! Our last stop was at the Temple of Luxor and was very interesting. The ride from the ship to Luxor is about 3.5 hours which made for a very long day, but I wouldn't have missed these sights.

Again Safaga is nothing to look at, but most passengers did a trip across to Luxor. Another long, but very interesting trip. Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Luxor were excellent. Our guide was OK, but he talked almost non-stop all day. It was over 3 hours each way on the bus and he kept going virtually the whole way there and the whole way back.

We did have enough time to see three of the tombs. Seeing the vibrant colors, still decorating the toms after thousands of years, was awe-inspiring.

Tour also went to Luxor Temple. I have touched on the horrors of this excursion in my general review. Luxor Temple is interesting. We were also disappointed that you can't take pictures in the Valley of the Kings. I you want pictures, you have to buy the "official" government issued photo package.

The history of the Valley of Kings comes to life when the Guides tell you the stories behind the Tombs. The cruise ship had great guides for this experience. It is a lot of walking, stairs and very hot out there, but we'll worth the visit.

The sights WERE amazing but the tour was not. The tour guide was awful. We were not allowed cameras at all in the Valley of the Kings - inside the tombs or out. The drive from Safaga to Luxor is too long - 4 and a half hours one way - and time at the valley too short (less than 1 1/2 hours). The sights are worth seeing but it should ideally be done from a Nile Cruise, not from Safaga.

This would have been a 5 if we were in better shape. The stairs prevent one from truly experiencing the incredible tombs.
