Detailed itinerary of the 8-Day Easter Tour to Discover Ancient Egypt
Day 1: Arrival in the Land of Civilization, Egypt: When you arrive at Cairo International Airport, one of our representatives will meet you and help you with all of the formalities so that your entry can be approved quickly. Once this is done, you will meet your tour guide who will be waiting for you outside the airport and he will transfer you in your private A.C vehicle to your hotel in Cairo so that you can check in quickly and unwind.
You will be picked up from your hotel in the evening to start your Easter journey in Egypt with a Special Dinner Cruise aboard a very spectacular Nile River Cruise. As you have supper from an open buffet and take in some of the greatest dervish performances, we’ll bring you back to your hotel in Cairo for the night.
Day 2: Take in the Giza pyramids’ magnificence: Following a wonderful breakfast, your private tour guide will take you on an excursion to experience the Easter holiday in a region that encompasses what is regarded as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The main sights you will see during your trip are as follows:
Egyptian Pyramids in Giza
During your Egypt Easter vacation, the Giza Pyramid complex will be the first spot you see. It has been there for the last 4000 years, making it one of the oldest tourist destinations in the world. Six smaller pyramids, the Great Sphinx, the House of Immortality Valley Temple, and three large pyramids make up the complex.
The Great Pyramid
The opportunity to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World has never been greater. Of all the pyramids in the Giza Complex, the Great Pyramid of Khufu is the biggest and most spectacular. King Khufu resolved to carry on the construction efforts of his father Sneferu, which led him to construct a genuinely unique attraction.
The Great Sphinx
The great monarch Khafre The Son of Khufu oversaw the building of the Giza Sphinx, another spectacular structure, and as a result, the king’s characteristics can be seen on its face. Additionally, it features a lion’s body to create the sense that it is a powerful guard protecting the Giza Pyramids.
The Valley Temple
The Valley Temple was the location that witnessed these wonderful processes, so don’t miss the opportunity to visit it and take in some tales from your tour guide about how the ancient Egyptians were able to create such an unbelievably accurate system with certain beliefs. You must have heard many stories about the mummification and purification of the mummies that belonged to the ancient Egyptians of the ancient dynasties.
Then, after transferring you to a wonderful restaurant with a great view of the Pyramids and the Nile, you will have a delicious lunch before joining your own Egyptologist guide on an exclusive tour to learn the secrets and mysteries of the magnificent:
The Egyptian Museum
Enjoy your time to the fullest while you’re in such a fantastic location as it contains some of the largest ancient Egyptian collections, including some sought-after treasures that were once buried with the dead and among the most famous treasures that have been found, the Golden Mask of King Tutankhamun.
After your trip is done, we’ll take you back to your hotel in Cairo so you may spend the night.
Day 3: Explore Luxor City’s historic treasures: Enjoy your breakfast and depart from your 5-star hotel in Cairo. We will then drive you to the airport so you can catch your trip to Luxor. When you get there, you’ll meet up with your tour guide to continue your spectacular Egypt Easter trip, seeing some of the major sights on the East Bank of Luxor, like:
Temple of Karnak
Amun, his wife Mut, and their son Khunso were formerly the three main deities honored in this cult sanctuary. Given that the three temples within occupy more than 200 acres, it is the biggest religious structure ever created by a man and a genuinely remarkable structure.
We will transport you right away to check into your 5-star luxury Nile cruise so you can have your lunch and unwind before being taken to another stunning tourist destination in the evening that draws visitors from all over the globe.
Luxor Temple by Night
It is generally agreed that the greatest time to see Luxor Temple is at night, particularly walking around the row of sphinxes in front of it, which gives you the impression that you are in an exciting adventure movie. Luxor Temple is one of the finest sites you shouldn’t miss while in Luxor.
We will return you to your Nile Cruise for the night when your trip is complete.
Day 4: Be Enchanted by the Pharaohs’ Hidden Gems: You will enjoy your breakfast on the Nile Cruise the next morning before joining your tour guide to view some of the top sights on the west bank of Luxor, including:
The Kings’ Valley
The hypnotic Valley of the Kings is one of Luxor’s top tourist destinations. It contains the magnificent tombs of several famous ancient Egyptian pharaohs, including Tutankhamun, Ramses VI, Ramses II, Seti I, and many others. Your tour guide will explain everything in detail so you can get a general idea of how the ancient Egyptians lived.
Temple of Hatshepsut
When Queen Hatshepsut ruled Egypt during the 18th dynasty, she attempted to build a mortuary temple for herself that would not be forgotten, and this is really what we got, a genuine masterpiece. This is one of her most stunning accomplishments.
These two statues were created by King Amenhotep III, who began an amazing building project in Egypt. He constructed a huge temple for himself with these two statues standing in front of the temple for security purposes, but the entire mortuary temple was destroyed by various natural disasters, leaving only these two colossi, known as Memnon, standing.
You’ll then be driven back to your Nile Cruise, where you may have lunch, spend the remainder of the day, and stay the night.
Day 5: Tour of the Edfu and Kom Ombo Temples:
You will set sail for Edfu early in the morning, and when you arrive, you will board a horse-drawn carriage with your tour guide to be taken to the magnificent:
Temple of Edfu
On the west bank of the Nile, in Edfu, you will go to one of the most fascinating temples. The inscriptions on its walls provide some of the most helpful details regarding language, myth, and religion in Egypt during the Hellenistic period. It was constructed between 237 and 57 BC under the Ptolemaic Kingdom.
You will then begin sailing in the direction of Kom Ombo. When you are there, you’ll go with your own tour guide to see the distinctive:
Temple of Kom Ombo
It is a distinctive twin temple that was also constructed in the Ptolemaic era and has some alterations from the Roman era. Sobek and Hathor, two crocodile gods, were honored at the two temples.
You will return to your boat after your memorable Easter tour of Luxor City to begin sailing toward Aswan, where you will spend the night while on board your Nile cruise.
Day 6: Let Aswan’s charm free your spirit: Among the highlights that you will see with us today are some of the top tourist attractions in the Nubian Destination of Aswan, which is a charming city for most travelers.
High Dam at Aswan
It is a contemporary Egyptian achievement that was built with the financial assistance of UNESCO to safeguard the ancient Egyptian monuments from the threat of the Nile’s flood. It also has a significant impact today because it is Egypt’s primary source of power and greatly enhances the quality of life there.
The Unfinished Obelisk
It is the biggest obelisk ever constructed by a man and was created by Queen Hatshepsut to accompany the Lantern Obelisk. Originally, she planned to transport it to Karnak to be set in front of the temple’s gates, but when the top of the obelisk shattered, she chose to keep it in Aswan.
Temple of Philae
On Aglika Island near Aswan, there is a very beautiful temple that was relocated there during the building of the High Dam. The Ptolemaic Dynasty is when Philae Temple gained notoriety as the hub of the goddess Isis’ religion, which is what makes it so intriguing.
You will then be driven back to your Nile Cruise where you will eat lunch and spend the night.
Day 7: The Great Abu Simbel Temple tour: You will have your breakfast boxes in the morning, depart from your Nile Cruise, and then join your private tour guide for one of the most magnificent excursions throughout your Easter vacation in Egypt. You will learn:
Temples in Abu Simbel
The biggest, largest, and most spectacular temples of ancient Egypt are now available for your visit. There are two magnificent temples there; one of them is dedicated to King Ramses II, who made it a masterpiece by tying it to his birthday and coronation days during what is now known as the Sun Festival. He also constructed a tiny temple for his wife Nefertari that was devoted to her in order to express his profound love for her.
After your tour is finished, we’ll take you to the Aswan International Airport so you can catch your flight back to Cairo. Once you get there, we’ll take you to your hotel in Cairo so you can stay the night.
Day 8: Conclude Your 8-Day Easter Tour to Discover Ancient Egypt: After breakfast at your 5-star hotel in Cairo, you will check out and be driven to the airport, where you will be met by a representative who will help you with the necessary paperwork for your departure before you board your aircraft home to round off your 8-day Easter holiday in Egypt.
