Hatshepsut temple from air
Queen Hatshepsut ruled Egypt from1486 till 1468. She tried her best to be a stong Pharaoh. She even ordered the schulptors to add a beard to her stautes. And cut her temple in a uniqe style to adapt the slope of the hill.
To have a full panorama zoom out from the sky, enjoy and explore.
Luxor from air
Luxor hosts one third of the world's ancient antiquities.
Luxor is a real open museum.
Try not to miss exploring it from the sky...
To compare Such Colossi (great) two statues of Memnon as well as Luxor landscape, try the balloon and have a collective panorama of such area, as a part of your lowest possible flight over Luxor.
Luxor —the city— is the world's greatest open air museum.
Ancient Greek poet Homer described it as "Thebes of the hundred gates". Luxor —the name— was derived from the Arabic word "al-qusoor" i.e. "the palaces".
Take a better taste, and go little bit higher to explore more.
About Cost? It is a bit less than one air ticket!
