The photos were taken during a tour of the city of Luxor and at the pyramids of Giza.
The eldest daughter of former US President Donald Trump shared photos of her day in Luxor with her 7.5 million followers on Instagram, writing: 'Exploring the wonders of Luxor, one of the oldest inhabited cities in the world!'
Before taking a tour of the Luxor Temple, which is located on the east bank of the River Nile, Ivanka, her husband Jared Kushner, 41, and their three children Arabella, 11, Joseph, 8, and Theodore, 6, were pictured standing in front of an ancient statue of the god Amun at the entrance to the temple.

The family embarked on this tour after Ivanka's announcement that she was bowing out of political life and would not join her father Donald Trump on his 2024 presidential campaign.
Two days ago, she posted photos touring the Pyramids and riding camels with her husband and their three children.
Praising the beauty of Egypt, Ivanka wrote on her Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts “A day at the Pyramids! So special to explore the beauty of Egypt for the first time with my family!”

In November, National Geographic included Egypt on its list of 25 best tourist destinations for 2023. The magazine included Egypt among the best destinations for travellers looking for heritage and culture, and made special mention of the Avenue of the Sphinxes in Luxor, which was opened last year, and Giza’s Grand Egyptian Museum, which is set to open soon and which will feature the full collection of King Tutankhamun and many other artefacts from ancient Egypt.
Earlier this year, the UK’s Daily Mail news website selected Egypt as the second best holiday destination for tourists for spring and summer of 2022.
Egypt’s tourism sector has been struggling to recover from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine. The number of tourists dropped from 13 million in 2019 to 3.7 million in 2020 before rising to 8.2 million in the first nine months of the fiscal year 2021-22, according to data provided by the Central Bank of Egypt.
