If you are interested in visiting a great archeological site but not widely visited among traditional and classical attractions, Your Egypt Tours offers you this great chance. Go for two days tour to El Minya, which was the capital of Egypt during the reign of Akhnaten and Nefertiti and their son Tut Ankh Amun. Upon arriving there after 4 hour's drive south, you will get on a motorboat to cross the Nile. Your Egyptologist tour guide will accompany you to explain all about Tel Al Amarna, the capital city that replaced Luxor for the new cult of Atun. After having a full idea about Monotheism and why the capital was moved from Luxor to Amarna, you will go to Beni Hassan, where many noble's tombs were discovered there, such as the tombs of Bakhet, the tomb of Kathy, and Khnumhotep. Those are the Middle Kingdom tombs. Then, you will have lunch in a local restaurant; you will drive to the hotel to spend a night there.
Tuna El Gabel is one of El Minya's villages, but now it is an important archeological site as it was a necropolis during the Pharaonic, Greek, and Roman eras. On this site, you will visit the Ibis catacombs, the tomb of Perosirs, and the Roman tomb of Isadora. At the end of the tour.
