Day 2: Visit the Pyramids and the Egyptian Museum in Cairo
After breakfast, you will be accompanied by one of our highly trained tour guides to the greatest historical sites in Cairo, including:
Giza Pyramids Complex
The ancient treasures’ home is one of Egypt’s most remarkable historical sites, dating back to the 4th dynasty. The Giza Necropolis is the best example, where you may experience the ancient Egyptian Civilization’s splendor. The three well-known pyramids, as well as the exceedingly well-structured sculpture of the Sphinx, are the most important constructions at this fabled site.
The Great Pyramid of Giza
The Great Pyramid of Giza has retained a unique location, and it continues to dazzle and astonish all visitors to Egypt. It was built up of around 2,300,000 stone blocks and is dedicated to Pharaoh Khufu as his splendid private tomb. It was the highest structure in the world for approximately 2000 years due to its massive size.
The Great Sphinx of Giza
The Great Sphinx is a gigantic statue with a unique construction dedicated to King Khafre, and like most of the major monuments on the Giza Plateau, it was built during the reign of the 4th dynasty. This imperial statue was carved with a human head and a lion’s body, which is actual proof that it was created primarily to guard the location against attackers.
The Valley Temple
The Valley Temple, which was initially built as a burial temple for King Khufu and later became the most popular center of purification and mummification, was positioned as one of the most beautiful monumental elements at Giza Necropolis.
Take a break at an Egyptian luxurious restaurant and have a delicious lunch before visiting:
The Egyptian Museum is located in Cairo, Egypt.
The Egyptian Museum has a one-of-a-kind collection of over 4000 years of riches, including over 250,000 real antiquities and thousands of pieces of gold and artifacts, as well as King Tutankhamun’s legacy.
We will take you back to your Cairo hotel.
On the third day, take a tour of Luxor’s East Bank.
After checking out, you will be transferred to the airport to catch a flight to Luxor, where your Nile cruise excursion will begin. In Luxor, you’ll meet up with your expert tour guide to see the sights of the East Bank, including:
The Karnak Temple is the largest temple ever constructed by man. It is made up of three big structures that encompass 247 acres of land and have a distinctive style of decorating and drawings on the walls, as well as a great range of sculptures and artifacts. Karnak is devoted to the gods Amun, Khonsu, and Mut and is the biggest sacred site in Ancient Egypt.
Check in to a 5* high-end Nile cruise, enjoy lunch on board, and then relax on the ship. You will be taken at night to see:
Temple of Luxor
The Temple of Luxor is a symbol of ancient civilization, a genuinely amazing landmark in the center of Luxor City, and is housed in the World’s Largest Outdoor Museum. Luxor Temple, unlike the other temples in the city, was built for the regeneration of royalty rather than the worship of a deity or a figure of the kings.
Return to the cruise ship and spend the night.
Day Four: Luxor West Bank Tour
Visit the must-see sights in the West Bank with your tour guide, including:
Temple of Hatshepsut
Queen Hatshepsut is regarded as one of Ancient Egypt’s most successful pharaohs and the country’s only female monarch. Her reign was calm and wealthy, and as a consequence, she achieved a broad range of accomplishments, one of which was her own funerary temple, which contains memorials to all of her major deeds.
The Kings’ Valley
It is an ancient burial ground that has the tombs of Ancient Egypt’s dynasties 17, 18, and 19. The Valley of the Kings is one of Egypt’s most impressive monuments, consisting of 63 royal tombs, the majority of which were built for pharaohs and aristocracy.
The Mortuary Temple of Amenhotep III is guarded by the fabled Colossi of Memnon. The temple is made up of two magnificent twin sculptures that sit at Luxor’s gateway, and it is known for its imposing aspect.
Start cruising after a delicious meal aboard your cruise ship.
Day 5: A Visit to Edfu and Kom Ombo
After breakfast on board, your day journey will begin with a horse carriage ride to the following locations with your local tour guide:
The Edfu Temple is located in the middle of Edfu’s town, and it is the most attractive of all the Nile-side temples. Edfu Temple, like most of the temples in the region, is a late construction built during the Greco-Roman period.
Lunch will be provided on board before sailing to the following locations:
Temple of Kom Ombo
It is located around 30 kilometers north of Aswan. The Temple of Edfu is one of the most spectacular temples built during the Ptolemaic Period, and it was primarily built to honor Sobek and Horus.
Return to your Nile boat to continue your journey to Aswan.
Day Six: Aswan Attractions Tour
After breakfast, your tour guide will take you to some of Aswan’s most famous historical landmarks, including:
The High Dam is a man-made structure that was built
The Aswan High Dam is a fascinating technical achievement that is considered one of President Gamal Abdul Nasser’s most notable undertakings. It was built during his reign. The project began in 1960 with a width of roughly 12,500 feet and was finished in 1971, accounting for over half of the country’s electrical supply.
The Unfinished Obelisk
It was fashioned out of red granite and is the largest obelisk ever built in Ancient Egypt. This massive monument was 140 feet long and had never been finished until a weakness in the granite was discovered, at which point it was abandoned.
Temple of Philae
The Philae Temple, which is presently located on Agilika Island, is one of the most spectacular temples. During the Ptolemaic Period, the temple became the focus of adoration for the goddess Isis.
For lunch and overnight, you will be taken back to your ship.
Day 7: Tour of Abu Simbel Temple
After receiving your breakfast boxes, your knowledgeable tour guide will drive you to the following locations in a contemporary A/C vehicle:
Temples of Abu Simbel
No Aswan trip is complete without a visit to Abu Simbel Temple. Abu Simbel is an unequaled landmark in Egypt’s history, and it is the most visible depiction of ancient Egyptian architecture’s glitz. The temple was cut into the mountains during Pharaoh Ramses II’s reign, and it consists of two twin temples: the main temple was dedicated to the monarch, while the minor temple was built to commemorate his inspired Queen Nefertari.
You will return to Aswan for lunch before boarding a direct flight to Cairo, where you will be transferred to a 5* high-end hotel for check-in and overnight.
