Giza Pyramids Complex:
The Giza Pyramids Complex, located on the Giza Plateau, was one of the first locations to witness the magnificence of the Pharaohs. It is made up of three great pyramids, “Cheops/ Khufu,” “Chephren/ Khafre,” and “Menkaure,” as well as six minor pyramids.
The Great Pyramid:
The Great Pyramid was erected during the time of King Khufu in the 4th dynasty (2589-2566 BCE), and it is one of the highest hand-made structures in the ancient world (146 m), making it one of the seven global marvels owing to its huge height. It is made out of around 2 million stone blocks and was subsequently utilized as a holy burial for King Khufu.
The Great Sphinx:
It’s one of the world’s most impressive carvings, dating back to the 4th dynasty. It has a lion’s body and a human head with King Chephren’s visage on it. Carving it from a large chunk of limestone took three years and 100 employees.
The Valley Temple:
It is situated on the Giza Plateau, which was built primarily as a center for mummification. The Valley Temple was constructed from enormous pieces of diorite-sculpted granite.
After lunch, go to Pyramids or Nile View restaurant and then move to the following sites:
Saqqara Step Pyramid
It is said to be the first large-scale cut-stone building, dating back to King Djoser’s reign in Egypt in the 27th century B.C. The step pyramid is made up of six steps stacked on top of each other and stands 62 meters tall.
King Menes established the first capital of Egypt. It was strategically located between Upper and Lower Egypt. Memphis was said to be guarded by the deity Ptah, the god of creation and art.
We then transport you back to your hotel for the night.
Day Three: Fly to Aswan – Visit Aswan Top Highlights: Have breakfast at the hotel in Cairo and then check out before we take you to the airport to fly to Aswan. When you arrive, your private tour guide will meet you and take you to the following Aswan tourist attractions:
The High Dam
The High Dam is located in Egypt’s extreme south and is around 3830 m in length and 111 m in height. Its construction was critical because it defended Egypt from the yearly Nile River floods, which flooded the farms and crops. As a result, it has had a significant beneficial impact on the Egyptian economy.
The Unfinished Obelisk
It is the largest obelisk ever carved in Ancient Egypt, weighing 1200 tons and measuring 42 meters in length. During the 18th dynasty, Queen Hatshepsut (1478 1458) erected it. Since then the monarchs began to build the obelisks alongside the temples for religious reasons. This unfinished obelisk demonstrates the Ancient Egyptians’ carving and sculpture skills.
Temple of Philae
It is the most impressive Nubian structure, created as a shrine to the goddess Isis. Before UNESCO salvaged it by relocating it from Philae Island to Agilika Island, the temple was in grave danger because of the Nile floods. Pharaohs, Byzantines, Greeks, and Romans had all left their imprints on the temple’s stone.
Lunch will be given at Nile View Restaurant, followed by transport to a 5* hotel to check in and spend the night.
Day 4: Visit Abu Simbel: Early morning, you will collect your breakfast boxes and be joined by your own tour guide to continue your travels in Upper Egypt by exploring:
Temples of Abu Simbel
Free your soul and secure your position in the “Abu Simbel Temples,” which feature two spectacular temples built by King Ramses II, one for himself as a worship site for Amun Ra The Sun God, and the other for his gorgeous wife Queen Nefertiti as a pilgrimage destination for the goddess Hathor. Actually, the Abu Simbel Temples enjoy a spectacular outlook since they are immediately on the banks of the Nile River.
Return to Aswan for lunch before being transported to the railway station to board a first-class train to Luxor. Check into a 5* hotel for the night upon arrival.

Temple of Karnak
Follow in the footsteps of luxury and explore the mysteries of ancient Egyptian history in one of history’s most well-known temples, Luxor’s “Karnak Temples.” The Karnak Temple was built during the reign of Senusert I in the 18th dynasty of Egypt’s Middle Kingdom, and its development continued until the Ptolemaic Era. The temple, like other temples erected during this time period, was created for religious reasons. It was an important location for the worship of Thebes’ goddess and the god Amun.
Enjoy your lunch at a Nile-view restaurant before returning to your accommodation to recuperate before heading out in the evening to visit:
The Luxor Temple
Under the glorious lights of the sight, take an Egyptian evening tour amid the stunning ruins of the Pharaohs at Luxor Temple. The temple, built by Amenhotep III and finished by Tutankhamun, was primarily used to commemorate the yearly Opet Festival and the most notable religious activities.
Return to your hotel for the night.
Day Six: Visit Luxor’s West Bank: After breakfast, check out of the hotel and be taken by your own tour guide to continue your journey in Luxor by touring the West Bank, which includes:
The Valley of Kings
Actually, creating the Valley of the Kings was a continuation of the Pharaohs’ belief in an afterlife. The Valley of the Monarchs was primarily built by the forefathers to serve as royal tombs for their kings. These subterranean tombs contained furniture, jewels, and jewelry that the deceased monarch would need in the afterlife.
Temple of Hatshepsut
The temple, considered one of Egypt’s most magnificent buildings, was built for Queen Hatshepsut during the 18th dynasty. The temple has a panoramic view and a long road leading to the entrance. It had an important role in Ancient Egypt as a religious center for worship, and its walls are a magnificent depiction, with numerous paintings and sculptures depicting ordinary life in Ancient Egypt.
Two massive colossal sitting sculptures of King Amenhotep III, who reigned during the 18th dynasty, may be seen in western Luxor. Each monument weighs 720 tons and is 18 meters tall. The two sculptures depict a sitting monarch on a throne with figures of his wife, mother, and the deity Hapy.
Lunch will be supplied at an oriental cuisine restaurant and then transported by a private A.C vehicle to Hurghada. After arriving, go to a 5* hotel to check in for an overnight stay.
