Day 1: Visit Luxor East Bank Landmarks: You will meet your tour guide in the morning, and together you will embark on a 7-night cruise up the Nile to see the ancient sites on the East Bank of Luxor, including:
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 is composed of three major structures, many smaller enclosed structures, and several outside structures.
After that, board your 5-star Nile cruise for lunch and some relaxation. We will take you up in the evening to enjoy:
Temple of Luxor: The most significant event, the festival of Opet, was centered around the Luxor Temple. The temple aimed to serve as a venue for the festival’s ceremonies, and it was mostly built by Amenhotep III and Rameses II. The purpose of the event was to bring the ruler’s divine and human halves closer together.
Enjoy the temple, then go back to the ship to spend the night. L.D. includes meals.
Day 2: Free on the Nile Cruise: The second day will be free for you to take advantage of the voyage as you go to Edfu. B.L.D. All Meals Included
Day 3: Visit Edfu Temple, then sail to Kom Ombo: Your own Egyptologist will accompany you in a horse-drawn carriage in the morning to see:
Temple in Edfu: The Edfu Temple is regarded as the best-preserved Greco-Roman structure in all of Egypt, and a “Play” depicting Horus’ victory over the malevolent deity Seth is painted on its walls.
In the evening, Aswan (late-night arrival).
B.L.D. All Meals Included.
Day 4: Visit the Best Aswan Landmarks: Enjoy your breakfast before continuing to Aswan Highlights for the last night of your seven-night Nile cruise, where you will see:
High Dam at Aswan: At Aswan, a bridge across the Nile was constructed. Between 1960 and 1970, the High Dam was built, and its impact on Egypt’s economy and culture has been profound.
The Unfinished Obelisk: The biggest ancient obelisk that is known. The Lateran Obelisk, which was initially at Karnak and was subsequently transported to the Lateran Palace in Rome, was commissioned by Queen Hatshepsut (1508 1458 BC), probably as a compliment.
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.
A night spent at sea with all meals included (B.L.D).
Day 5: Private Car Tour to the Abu Simbel Temples: Get your breakfast boxes early in the day, then meet your private tour guide for a private guided tour of the Abu Simbel temples:
Abu Simbel Temples: The two temples of Abu Simbel are regarded as the pinnacles of ancient Egypt because of their distinctive architecture. Both of the Temples were erected during the time of King Ramses II about 1200 B.C., and both are rock-cut constructions. King Ramses II is honored in one temple, while his loving wife Queen Nefertari is honored in another. Both temples are beautifully decorated with sculptures and artwork. This temple is a must-see since it has hand-carved pillars, wall paintings, sculptures, statues, and much more.

The Kings’ Valley: It is the location of the tombs of Egypt’s kings from the 18th to the 20th dynasties, notably those of the renowned Pharaoh Ramses II and the young Pharaoh Tutankhamun. The tombs were fully furnished with everything a monarch may want in the afterlife in terms of material things. The majority of the interior decorations are still in good condition.
Temple of Hatshepsut: of the most exquisite and well-preserved of all the Egyptian temples. The temple was constructed on three levels, connected by two large ramps in the middle.
Memnon’s Colossi: Only two enormous stone sculptures of King Amenhotep III survive in 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.
