Detailed itinerary of the 10 Days Easter Tour in Egypt

You will be picked up from the airport by a private A/C vehicle and driven to your hotel to check in.
We will pick you up from your hotel in the evening to begin your Egypt easter holiday with a dinner cruise on which you will sit back and relax while watching a colorful belly dancing show with a folklore band, including the unforgettable Tannoura spin, in keeping with Egypt’s whirling dervishes tradition, before being transferred back to your hotel for the night.
Day 2: The Egyptian pyramids provide a wealth of history and beauty: After breakfast, meet your own Egyptologist tour guide to begin your 10-day Egypt Easter vacation by seeing some of Cairo’s biggest tourist destinations, beginning with:
Giza Pyramids Complex
Three major pyramids, six smaller pyramids, the Great Sphinx, and the Valley Temple are all part of the complex. The structure dates from 2400 B.C. when it was built by the 4th dynasty.
The Great Pyramid of Giza
The Great Pyramid of Giza belongs to “King Khufu,” and it is the oldest and biggest of the three pyramids on the Giza plateau, as well as the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World that has survived intact. The enormous pyramid is 147 meters tall, has 2,300,000 stones in its construction, and took twenty years to complete.
The Great Sphinx of Giza
The 73-meter-high Great Sphinx of “King Chephren” is the world’s biggest statue. 19 m in length has a width of 20 meters and a height of 20 meters. It is the earliest monumental sculpture that has been discovered.
The Valley Temple:
This is the sole surviving granite funerary temple used by Ancient Egyptians for the mummification procedure on the Giza plateau.
Lunch will be served at a restaurant with a view of the Pyramids or the Nile, after which you will visit:
Step Pyramid of Saqqara
It dates back to the era of King Djoser, who governed Egypt in the 27th century B.C. and is said to be the oldest large-scale cut-stone building. The 62-meter-high step pyramid is made up of six steps stacked on top of one another.
King Menes established it as Egypt’s first capital, and it was strategically located between Upper and Lower Egypt. Memphis was said to be guarded by the deity Ptah, who was the god of creation and art. Finally, we’ll return you to your Cairo hotel for the night.
Day 3: Aswan’s Timeless Beauty: Enjoy your breakfast and check out from your Cairo hotel before being transferred to Cairo airport to catch your flight to Aswan. Upon arrival, meet our tour guide to begin the second half of your Egypt easter vacation by touring Aswan tourist sites, beginning with:
High Dam of Aswan
It was erected between 1960 and 1970 over the Nile River at Aswan, and it has had a profound impact on Egypt’s economy and culture.
The Unfinished Obelisk
Ancient Egypt’s biggest obelisk. It was commissioned by Queen Hatshepsut (1508-1458 BC) to accompany the Lateran Obelisk (which was initially located at Karnak and then transported to the Lateran Palace in Rome).
Temple of Philae
Philae is a shrine dedicated to Isis, the goddess of beauty and love. As part of the UNESCO Nubia Campaign initiative, the temple complex was demolished and transported to neighboring Agilkia Island, safeguarding it and other monuments before the Aswan High Dam was completed in 1970. After that, enjoy your lunch before checking into your 5* luxury Nile cruise and spending the night on board.
Day 4: Tour of Kom Ombo Temple: After breakfast onboard your Nile cruise, join your tour guide for a visit to Kom Ombo Temple, which overlooks the Nile, and is separated into two temples with two entrances, two hypostyle halls, and two sanctuaries. Return to your ship for lunch and an overnight stay.

Edfu Temple is dedicated to Horus, the Egyptian god. Edfu Temple is Egypt’s best-preserved Greco-Roman temple, with a “Play” depicting Horus’ victory over the wicked deity Seth painted on its walls.
On the cruise, enjoy your lunch and sail to Luxor, arriving late at night and spending the night on board.
Day 6: In Luxor, delve into the glitzy past of the ancient Egyptians: Breakfast aboard the ship, then check out and join our Egyptologist tour guide and a private air-conditioned car to finish your Egypt easter trip in upper Egypt, seeing Luxor tourist spots such as:
The King’s Valley
Valley of the Kings is home to the tombs of Egypt’s monarchs from the 18th through 20th dynasties, including the renowned pharaoh Ramses II and the child Tutankhamun. The tombs were properly supplied with everything a monarch may want in the afterlife. The majority of the tomb decorations are still intact.
The Temple of Hatshepsut
Hatshepsut Temple is one of the most gorgeous and well-preserved Egyptian temples. The temple was constructed on three levels, with two large ramps connecting the floors in the center.
The only vestiges of a full funerary temple are two huge stone sculptures of King Amenhotep III. The figures are built of quartzite sandstone stones that were found near Cairo and transported 700 kilometers to Luxor.
Continue to visit after your lunch:
Temple of Karnak
The Karnak temple is one of Egypt’s most stunning sites. It’s the world’s biggest temple complex. It is the result of several generations of Egyptian builders and Pharaohs working together. The Temple of Karnak is made up of three great temples spread out across 247 acres.
Finally, check into a 5* Luxor hotel for the night.

Mohamed Ali Mosque
The mosque was built between 1830 and 1848 and is known as “The Alabaster Mosque” because the majority of the walls are composed of flawless alabaster. Mohamed Ali Mosque is a copy of Istanbul’s Blue Mosque.
The Egyptian Civilization National Museum is located in Cairo, Egypt.
The National Museum of Egyptian Civilization (NMEC) is a traveler’s dream come true for everyone who wants to learn about Egypt’s unique history and culture in the most enchanting and efficient way possible. The Museum was created to take visitors on a trip through Egypt’s treasures throughout the years, from prehistoric periods to the present day.
