Tour Itinerary

Day One: Check-in Cruise and Tour of the East Bank of Luxor

Beginning with a visit to the East Bank of Luxor, we will take you from your Hurghada hotel in the morning so you can enjoy your Nile River cruises from Hurghada to Luxor and Aswan.

Temple of Karnak

The Karnak temple is the most impressive site in Egypt. It is the biggest temple complex ever constructed by humans and commemorates the accomplishment of several generations of pharaohs in ancient Egypt. On a 247-acre plot of ground, the Temple of Karnak consists of three major temples, many smaller walled temples, and several peripheral temples.

After that, board your 5-star Nile cruise for lunch and some relaxation. We will take you up in the evening to enjoy:

Luxor Temple by Night

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.

Aboard for the night, Meals Included “L.D.”

The second day: sail to Edfu

From Hurghada, continue your Nile River cruises by sailing to Esna and then to Edfu. Edfu overnight stays B.L.D. Includes All Meals

Day 3: Visit Edfu Temple and then sail to Aswan

Join your Egyptologist tour guide after breakfast to visit:

Temple in Edfu

A “Play” depicting the victory of Horus over the wicked deity Seth is painted on the walls of the Edfu Temple, which is said to be the most well-preserved Greco-Roman structure in all of Egypt.

Once you’ve finished your tour of Edfu, board the ship once again and set sail towards Aswan. In the evening, Aswan (late-night arrival). B.L.D. All Meals Included

Day Four: Visit the Attractions in Aswan

Enjoy your breakfast before continuing to Aswan, where you will see the following sites to finish your Nile River cruises from Hurghada:

The High Dam

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. Queen Hatshepsut (1508–1458 BC) placed an order for it, probably to complement 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.

A night on the boat. B.L.D. Includes All Meals

Day Five: Visit Abu Simbel and return by boat to Kom Ombo

Get your breakfast boxes in the morning, then meet your 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. After lunch, return to your cruise and sailing. Included Are All Meals {B.L.D}

Day Six: Visit Kom Ombo and return by boat to Luxor

On the boat, have your breakfast before joining your tour guide to see:

Temple of Kom Ombo

A temple with a view of the Nile is Kom Ombo Temple. With two entrances, two hypostyle halls, and two sanctuaries, this temple was partitioned into two separate temples.

Once your visit to the Kom Ombo is complete, return to your ship and set sail towards Luxor. B.L.D. All Meals Included

Day Seven: Return by boat to Luxor

From Hurghada, continue your Nile River cruises with an excursion to the West Bank of Luxor to see:

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

One of the most stunning and well-preserved of all the ancient Egyptian temples is the Hatshepsut Temple. 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.

All your Meals Included {B.L.D}.

Egypt Fun Tours - Valley of Whales Day Trip - AMAZING EXPERIENCE

June 12, 2024

Jan 2013 • Family

My family and I were visiting Egypt for only 5 days, so we contact Egypt Fun Tours to see what they could suggest we can do for one day. Fortunately, after looking at their website, they had a category with EXACTLY what we needed – Cairo Day Tours! Given that this was our fourth visit to Cairo, and definitely NOT our first experience touring with EFT, Hani and Mohammad immediately came up with a plan for us, where we would visit a new place and experience the most incredible views; (we’ve already seen the pyramids, museum, citadel, etc). Our trip was to the Valley of the Whales! I won’t give away too much information, but it required an approximately three hour van ride into the open desert (TOTALLY different from the desert in Valley of the Kings, Abu Simbel, etc) and when we got there, the view was breathtaking! We were entertained by Hani’s Egyptian History trivia, as well as the adventurous van ride for several kilometers through the sand! We also had the opportunity to pass through the Fayyoum Oasis and to visit the Waterfalls all in one trip! Almost forgot to mention the DELICIOUS lunch with Bedouins! This is not a very common trip among tourists, but it definitely should be! If you have seen all of Egypt’s “main” attractions, you haven’t seen everything yet! Bring your camera and your sneakers and enjoy a wonderful day at the Valley of the Whales and all nearby attractions! As if our day wasn’t incredible enough, Hani and Mohammad took us to Old Cairo at night to a gorgeous coffee shop – Oum Kolsoum – to drink tea and coffee and then delivered us back to our hotel. Thank you so much Egypt Fun Tours for another memorable experience! See you soon inshallah!
