Detailed itinerary of the 6 Days Tour of Cairo, Luxor & Aswan
Day 1: Entry into Egypt, the Land of the Pharaohs: Your trip will begin as soon as you arrive at Cairo International Airport since an employee from Egypt Fun Tours will be there to greet you at the arrival gate and assist you with passport check procedures as well as baggage identification and carrying. You will be driven directly to your reserved 5* hotel from the airport in a private air-conditioned car. Following a vibrant belly dancing performance with a folklore band that includes an amazing Tannoura spin in keeping with Egypt’s whirling dervishes tradition, you will start your tour package with a dinner cruise on the one and only Nile River. Once the show is over, you will return to your hotel for the night.
Day 2: Visit Memphis City and the Pyramids: You will meet your private tour guide in the morning after breakfast to begin your Cairo, Luxor, and Aswan trip package by seeing the well-known archaeological site Giza Pyramids:
Giza Pyramids Complex: The complex is among the oldest complete structures in the world and has been standing for more than four thousand years. The Giza complex comprises of the large sphinx, the valley temple, the great sphinx, six smaller pyramids, and three major pyramids.
The Great Pyramid: Your first stop within the complex will be the Great Pyramid of King Khufu, one of the world’s largest constructions and the last remaining example of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. The building was built around 2580 BC, making it more than 4500 years old. Using 2300,000 pieces of 2.5-ton limestone and 100,000 free skilled laborers, it was constructed in 20 years. The Pyramid was the highest structure in the world for 3800 years until the Lincoln Cathedral in England was built in 1311. Its height is 147 meters (481 feet). Due to its sophisticated interior relative to its size, the pyramid has been and continues to be the subject of fanciful speculations over the previous millennia.
The Great Sphinx: Among all of Egypt’s antiquities, if not the whole globe, the Great Sphinx has a particular position. Due to its antiquity, size, and dubious provenance, it is unique. The Sphinx was cut out of single limestone rock and is 73 meters (240 feet) tall and 19 meters (66 feet) wide. It resembles the fabled monster known as the Sphinx, which had a lion’s body and a man’s head, King Khafre, to stand for knowledge and power. The Arabic name for it is Abu Al-Hawl, which translates as “The Father of Terror” in Egypt.
The Valley Temple: The mummification procedure was carried out in the Valley Temple. The valley, one of the best-preserved buildings of the ancient Egyptian civilization, was built during the old kingdom (2686 and 2134 BC). It is a wealth of knowledge about Ancient Egyptian mummification. The majestic King Khafre diorite sculptures are located in a valley constructed completely of granite and limestone.
Proceed to a neighborhood eatery in Cairo for lunch. After that, we’ll go to see:
Step Pyramid of Saqqara: One of the earliest pyramids ever built in Egypt, the Saqqara Step Pyramid was the one that kicked off the whole golden period of pyramid building in ancient Egypt. It was built about 2700 BC. The notorious Imhotep, the vizier of Pharaoh Djoser, constructed it. The Pyramid is encircled by an innovative complex and has a distinctive design with six steps, rising to a height of 62 meters. It is composed completely of limestone.
City of Memphis: As the life of the two lands after the unification of Egypt 4500 years ago, Memphis city served as the first recognized capital of Ancient Egypt under the direction of its creator, King Menes. It earned the moniker “land of endurance and beauty,” serving as the center for Ptah’s reign over commerce and the arts (the Patron of Craftsmen). Memphis was the location of the enormous Hut-Ka-Ptah temple, which means “Enclosure of the Ka of Ptah” and was translated into Greek as “Ai-Gy-Ptos,” the etymological source of the term “Egypt.”
Finally, we return you to the hotel where you will spend the night.
Day 3: Fly from Cairo to Aswan and take a tour of the city’s attractions: On day three of the Cairo, Luxor, and Aswan vacation package, go to the airport in the morning after eating breakfast to catch a flight to Aswan. Meet your Egyptologist tour guide upon arrival, and then go to the Aswan sites, beginning with:
The High Dam, which was built between 1960 and 1970 when Gamal Adel-Nasser was in power, symbolizes the contemporary essence of the whole city of Luxor. The dam was created in collaboration with the Moscow-based Hydro Project Institute to boost water storage for agriculture in its reservoir Lake Nasser, generate hydroelectricity, and improve control over Nile floods.
The Unfinished Obelisk: It was built by Queen Hatshepsut (1508-1458 BC) to stand at the entrance of the Karnak temple alongside the Lateran Obelisk, which is now housed at the Lateran palace in Rome. Unfortunately, the obelisk was cracked during construction and has remained there until this day. It was 42 meters tall and weighed 1200 tonnes.
Temple of Philae: The myth of Osiris, which describes how Isis’s husband, Osiris, was killed by his evil brother, Set, out of pure hatred and envy, and then how Osiris was resurrected to rule over the underworld, is held on the walls of the mesmerizing Philae Temple, which is the temple of the goddess Isis of Love & Beauty. The set is then vanquished by Isis and Osiris Son Hours, the sky god, in a fierce
Overnight at a 5* hotel in Aswan.
Day 4: Transfer by train to Luxor and see the city’s attractions: Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before meeting your tour guide and traveling by train to Luxor. Continue your Cairo, Luxor, and Aswan trip package when you arrive with a visit to:
The Kings’ Valley: The Valley of the Kings, which serves as the ultimate resting place for the greatest kings and queens of Egypt’s New Kingdom, is genuinely beyond comparison. It is located in the deepest part of a mountain (1570-1070 BC). In 1979, UNESCO designated the valley as a World Heritage Site in recognition of its many entrancing embellishments and stunning treasures. It has 63 tombs that are each loaded with captivating antiques, sculptures, mesmerizing décor, and the bones of pharaohs like Amenhotep I, Hatshepsut, Ramesses (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, IX, X), and the well-known young king Tutankhamun.
Temple of Hatshepsut: Temple Hatshepsut The most authentic representation of the beauty of ancient Egyptian civilization is the Djeser-Djeseru (Holy of Holies), which displays the grandeur of the New Kingdom (1550–1070 BC), Hatshepsut’s devotion to Amun, and the eminence and allure of one of the most powerful monarchs in the country’s history, Queen Hatshepsut. It was constructed in 1479 BC as the Amun god’s home.
Memnon’s Colossi: The Colossi of Memnon, which rise at a height of 18 meters (60 feet) and weigh 720 tonnes each in the likeness of Pharaoh Amenhotep III, are the giant guards of Luxor (1386-1350). A significant earthquake that occurred in 27 BC devastated the colossi, although they were later reconstructed in 199 AD. The Vocal Memnon phenomenon, which was caused by the statues sometimes producing a singing sound at dawn and was nothing more than the sound of the wind blowing through the statue, made the sculptures immensely renowned throughout the Greco-Roman era. After that, go to an island for lunch as part of your excursion, which also includes a boat ride down the Nile River.
Temples of Karnak: The Karnak Temple, also known as Ipet-isu The Most Selected of Places, and Pr-Imn House of Amon, is one of the largest open-air museums in the world and is considered to be the holiest site in Luxor and maybe the whole world.

Afterward, spend the night in a 5-star hotel in Luxor.

The Egyptian Museum: The Egyptian Museum is one of the largest museums in the world and is home to several fascinating items and monuments that date back more than 4,000 years from all different eras of ancient Egypt. It is like a mystical book that contains all of Egypt’s secrets, marvels, and mysteries. In Cairo, lunch will be provided in a neighborhood eatery before visiting:

It also functioned as the kingdom’s administrative center and a strong bastion against Napoleon’s French invasion and the Crusaders.
Mosque of Mohamed Ali: Due to the heavy use of marble, the Mohamed Ali Mosque is also known as the Alabaster Mosque. It was built between 1830 and 1848 AD as a copy of the blue mosque in Istanbul and serves as a metaphor for freedom and independence in opposition to the Ottoman Empire. The mosque is very beautiful, including a magnificent rococo-inspired dome and Ottoman-style construction. Then go to one of the Middle East’s oldest bazaars:
