The Great Karnak temple, built over 2000 years from 2055 BC to 100 AD across 247 acres to be the heart of Thebes filled with the most captivating collection of temples and shrines to various Egyptian deities such as Amun, Osiris, Mut, Khnsou, Isis, and more, is a true example of Egypt’s deep religious connection and ancient beliefs.
You’ll board a 5-star Nile cruise, check in, rest, and have lunch before heading out in the evening to see:
Luxor Temple by Night
Since its construction in 1400 BCE to worship the Theban triad and pay respects to them through the big Opet Festival, the festival’s ancient essence may be sensed and explored inside the majestic Luxor Temple, which only exhibits its true grandeur under the lights of the stars and moon.

Day 2: Visit the West Bank of Luxor
Breakfast on board your ship, followed by a private A.C car ride with your private tour guide to continue your Nile cruise tour from Port Ghalib by visiting:
The Kings’ Valley
Valley of the Kings, the immortal Pharaohs’ time capsule, contains all of the elements that make ancient Egyptian civilization unique, as it houses 20 tombs for famous Pharaohs such as the Ramses Dynasty, Tutankhamen, and others, all dating from Egypt’s New Kingdom (1570-1050 BC). Anyone who steps inside will see the oldest and finest examples of ancient Egyptian art, colorful decorations, and treasures ever created.
Temple of Hatshepsut
Since 1490 BC, the Valley of the Kings has been home to the greatest combination of greatness: beauty and might, which can be seen in every corner of Hatshepsut temple, where architectural brilliance is displayed clearly on every statue.
Between the two gigantic colossi of Memnon is a gate to Luxor, and across their colossal shadows is tremendous history dating back to Amenhotep III’s reign (1386-1350 BC), who built a massive funerary temple in Cairo, nearly 700 kilometers from Luxor.

The Unfinished Obelisk
Ordered by Queen Hatshepsut (1508-1458 BC) to stand in the Karnak temple, it was sadly fractured during construction, yet it was nevertheless able to demonstrate the ancient Egyptians’ forgotten hidden architectural skills.

The Philae temple, which was built between 380 and 362 BC during the Greco-Roman period to commemorate the goddess of motherhood and wife of Osiris, the ruler of the underworld, is constantly full of allure and charm.
