Originally a fishing village, Hurghada has long since morphed into today’s dense band of resorts and hotels that marches along the coastline for more than 20km. It is a great destination for combining a diving holiday with the Nile Valley sites. Further offshore there is still superb diving aplenty; local NGOs are helping the town clean up its act, and the southern resort area and Sigala's sparklingly modern marina have brought back some of Hurghada's sheen.

Valley of the Nobles
We start our tour at the valley of nobles and visit the tombs of Sennefer and Rekhmire, royals to the Egyptian throne, fine paintings, reliefs and colors which decorate these tombs have remained intact for thousands of years.
Valley of the Workers
Proceed to the valley of the workers which was the site that housed the craftsmen and skilled workers and laborers who used to work in the tombs of the valley of Kings and valley of the Queens as well as the valley of the nobles. The workers built and decorated their own tombs at the necropolis of Deir el-Medina. Discover the tombs of Inerkhau, one of the leading craftsmen of the village, and the tomb of the Ancient Egyptian artisan Sennedjem.
Take a break and enjoy a delicious lunch served in a local restaurant on the west bank.
We then continue to visit the temple of Rameses III, close to the village of Madinet Habu. It is one of Egypt’s best preserved temples and best kept secrets – there is a good chance that you will almost have the whole temple to yourself.
Valley of the Queens
The last visit of your day tour is to the valley of the queens. Here the queens and wives of the pharaohs were buried. The Pharaohs of the New Kingdom had these very special tombs built for their queens, princess and princesses.
