Itinerary

Egitours Egyptologist tour guide will pick you up from your hotel/Nile cruise to start your tour with a visit to Valley of the Queens; the place where wives of Pharaohs were buried during pharaohs New Kingdom (1550–1070 BC). In ancient times, it was known as Ta-Set-Neferu, which means: “The Supreme Beautiful Place”, because beside the Queens of the 18th, 19th and 20th dynasties, many princes and princesses were also buried with various nobles.
