After stopping at the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut we go on to the Valley of The Kings then the Valley of the Queens. On the way back its the Colossi of Memnon. Lunch on the boat before an afternoon horse riding.

  The next day is a Temple fest, with visits to the Karnac complex then Luxor Temple. In the afternoon it's back over to the West Bank for an hour or so aboard camels, exploring one of the villages and surrounding fields.
