Start your Egypt easter vacation with a Dinner Cruise with your tour guide in the evening, then sit back and relax while watching a colorful belly dancing show with a folklore band, complete with the unforgettable Tannoura spin, in keeping with Egypt’s whirling dervishes tradition, before returning to your hotel for the night.
Day 2: Witness the Grandeur of the Egyptian Pyramids
After breakfast, check out of the hotel and meet up with your private Egyptologist tour guide to begin your Easter exploration trip in Egypt by seeing some of Cairo’s most popular tourist destinations, including:
Giza Pyramids Complex
The complex has three large pyramids, one each for Cheops, Chefren, and Mykerinus, as well as six smaller pyramids, the Great Sphinx, and the Valley Temple. The structure dates from 2400 B.C. when it was built by the 4th dynasty.
The Great Pyramid of Giza
The Great Pyramid, which belonged to King Khufu, is the oldest and biggest of the three pyramids on the Giza plateau, and the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World to have 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 Great Sphinx is the world’s biggest statue, measuring 73 meters long, 19 meters broad, and 20 meters tall. 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.
After that, go to a local Cairo restaurant for lunch. After that, we’ll go to see:
The Egyptian Museum
The Egyptian Museum has a unique 5000-year-old art collection. Nearly 250,000 real ancient Egyptian items are on display, including an exhibit devoted to King Tutankhamun’s riches, gold, and jewelry, which was kept safe for over 3,500 years in his tomb.
Finally, we transfer you to Cairo International Airport for your flight to Luxor, where you will check into a 5* hotel for the night.
Day 3: Enter the 100 Gates of Luxor City
After breakfast at the hotel, meet your private Egyptologist tour guide to explore the most well-known Luxor tourist sites, beginning with:
The Kings’ Valley
The tombs of King Ramses II and King Tutankhamen may be found here, as well as those of Egypt’s kings from the 18th to the 20th dynasties. The tombs were well-stocked with everything a monarch may want in the afterlife. The majority of the interior décor of the tombs has been beautifully conserved.
Temple of Hatshepsut
Hatshepsut’s temple is one of the most gorgeous and well-preserved Ancient Egyptian temples. The temple was constructed on three levels, with two large ramps connecting the floors in the center.
The sole remnants of a full funerary temple are two huge stone sculptures of King Amenhotep III. The figures are fashioned from quartzite sandstone blocks found in Cairo and transported 700 kilometers to Luxor.
Then go to an island for lunch, so your tour includes a Nile River boat ride followed by a visit to:
The Karnak temple is Egypt’s most spectacular structure. It is the world’s most massive temple complex. It is the result of several generations of ancient builders and Pharaohs working together. The Temple of Karnak is really three separate temples spread over 247 acres.
Then it’s back to the Luxor hotel for the night.
Day 4: Explore Muthical Temples of Kom Ombo and Edfu
Breakfast and check-out of the hotel in the morning, then join your private Egyptologist tour guide for a private air-conditioned car trip to Edfu and Kom Ombo temples.
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.
Temple of Kom Ombo
The Nile River is seen from the Kom Ombo Temple. There are two temples with two entrances, two hypostyle halls, and two sanctuaries in this temple.
After that, eat lunch and then go to Aswan in your own air-conditioned vehicle to check into a 5* hotel and spend the night.
Day 5: Discover The Temple of Abu Simbel
Breakfast boxes are delivered in the morning, followed by a private air-conditioned vehicle journey to Abu Simbel, where you will meet your private tour guide.
Temples of Abu Simbel
The two Temples of Abu Simbel are regarded as marvels of ancient Egypt because of their distinctive design. The Temples are rock-cut temples that were created during King Ramses II’s reign around 1200 B.C. King Ramses II is honored in one temple, while his loving wife Queen Nefertari is honored in the other. Both temples are adorned with magnificent sculptures and artwork. It is a necessity to explore such a remarkable place, with hand-carved pillars, wall murals, sculptures, statues, and much more.
Return to your hotel in Aswan for lunch and an overnight stay.
Day 6: Experience the Beauty of Aswan City
Breakfast at the hotel, then check out and accompany the Egyptologist tour guide to begin the second half of your Egypt easter holiday by seeing the following tourist places in Aswan:
High Dam of Aswan
It was erected at Aswan, Egypt, across the Nile, between 1960 and 1970, and has had a considerable 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.
Finally, head to Aswan for lunch before catching your flight back to Cairo and checking into a 5* hotel for the night.
