We pick you up from your hotel at 6 a.m. and take a limousine to Dendera for around 2 hours. There we visit the beautiful temple of Dendera, which is dedicated to the goddess Hathor, the goddess of motherly qualities, love, music, and amusements. Hathor can be equated with Aphrodite from Greek mythology. Then we drive about an hour to West Thebes. There we visit the necropolis of today's Luxor and there Deir el-Medina, the valley of the workers. Deir el-Medina is the burial site and housing estate of the ancient Egyptian builders, workers, and artists. Then it continues to Medinet Habu.
