ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Mortuary Temple of HatshepsutThe mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahari, the only terraced temple in Egypt, is set in a natural amphitheatre in the cliffs and rises out of the desert plain. This extensive temple features great ramps and courtyards and still contains beautiful reliefs on its inner walls and chapels. The mortuary temple of Ramesses II at the Ramesseum was once a masterpiece, but now only parts of its pylons and inner temple still stand.

The seldom-visited ancient village of Deir el-Medina, also known as the valley of the artisans and workmen, houses some perfectly painted tombs with charming scenes from the everyday life of the ancient Egyptians.
