Day 1: Board the ship and see the attractions in Luxor
We will pick you up from your hotel or the airport in Luxor in the morning to begin your five-day Dahabiya Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan with your tour guide, where you will see the following sights of Luxor:
The Kings’ Valley
Temple of Hatshepsut
Hatshepsut, the queen who aspired to be king, was a leader adored by her subjects but always surrounded by controversies. One of the greatest intact examples of its sort is her magnificent temple on Luxor’s West Bank.
Only two enormous stone sculptures of King Amenhotep III survive from a funerary temple that was once completely constructed. The sculptures are constructed from quartzite sandstone stones that were originally found in Cairo and transported 700 km to Luxor.
Enjoy your lunch on the Dahabiya after that, and then follow your guide as you visit:
Temple of Karnak
The Karnak temple is the most spectacular landmark in Egypt. It is the biggest temple complex ever constructed by humans and marks the culmination of the labors of numerous pharaohs and generations of ancient builders. On a 247-acre plot of ground, the Temple of Karnak consists of three major temples, many smaller walled temples, and several peripheral temples.
You will then be driven from Luxor to Esna to board your Nile boat, where you may have supper while traveling. Spend the night in Esna aboard your Nile boat.
Visit Edfu Temple and sail to Kom Ombo on Day Two.
sailing to Edfu, arriving at lunchtime, and visiting:
Temple of Edfu
Honoring the god Horus. The Edfu Temple is the most well-preserved Greco-Roman structure in all of Egypt, and a “Play” depicting Horus’ victory over the malevolent deity Seth is painted on its walls.
Gebel El Silsila
On both the west and east banks of the Nile, the location offered several stone quarries. Many shrines were built at the location by authorities who would have been in charge of the stone quarrying. This is where the sandstone for almost all of Ancient Egypt’s famous temples came from. Dinner and lunch will be served on the trip.
Day 3: Visit Kom Ombo Temple and take a ship to Aswan
Sailing to Kom Ombo, joining your tour guide, and visiting:
Temple of Kom Ombo
The Nile is seen from the Kom Ombo Temple. With two entrances, two hypostyle halls, and two sanctuaries, this temple was partitioned into two separate temples.
Take pleasure in sailing to Aswan at the day’s conclusion. Meals for lunch and supper will be provided aboard the Dahabiya boat.
Day Four: Examine the Attractions in Aswan
The Unfinished Obelisk
The biggest ancient obelisk that is known. Hatshepsut (1508–1458 BC) placed an order for it, probably to accompany the Lateran Obelisk (which was originally at Karnak and was later brought to the Lateran Palace in Rome).
Temple of Philae
Temple at Philae to the goddess Isis of Love and Beauty. As part of the UNESCO Nubia Campaign initiative, the temple complex was disassembled and moved to the adjacent island of Agilkia Island to safeguard it and other sites before the Aswan High Dam was finished in 1970.
