Day 1: Boarding in Aswan – Kom Ombo – Gebel el Silsila
Transfer aboard the Dahabiya and start on a three-day Nile cruise between Aswan and Esna. The first day’s voyage brings you to a tiny Nile island where you may take a stroll around the landscape.

Day 2: Edfu – El Fawaza:
After breakfast, tour Horemheb’s, Seti I’s, Ramses II’s, and Merenptah’s rock-cut chapels and Gebel el-sandstone Silsila’s quarries. The cruise continues to Edfu, where you may see the Temple of Horus, Egypt’s best-preserved temple. Continue your journey to a tiny island, where the boat will spend the night. Dinner will be served onboard the Dahabiya or around a campfire on the Nile’s peaceful banks. This is my second night on board.
