Our journey will then take us away from the usual tourist sites to visit into the small rural villages, here you will see the real Egypt, how people really live and go about their daily lives. The small town of Garagos was helped by two French Monks who created at its heart a thriving pottery industry to help the villagers.
Close to Garagos we can then visit the Montu Temple at Medamud which was once linked to the Temple of Montu at Karnack by a canal. Leaving here we will then travel south of Luxor to visit El Kab that is perhaps most famous for its beautiful Tombs, this was also the site of temples to Thoth and Nekhbet. This region was sacred to the goddess Nekhbet, "She of Nekhen", who was the Goddess of Upper Egypt. This whole Area is called Hieraconpolis and there are remains of all periods, from Pre-dynastic to Ptolemaic.
