Good morning, today you’ll have a full-day city tour in the capital after enjoying your breakfast.

You’ll head to Tahrir square to visit the largest museum in the region The Egyptian Museum , where you’ll see more than 100,000 original pieces from history telling us stories about the lives of the ancient Egyptians. You’ll also find a whole section dedicated to King Tut Ankh Amen .

You can’t come to Egypt and not see the Three Majestic Pyramids of the Kings Cheops, Chephren, and Myckerinus, where the tombs of the great kings lay, as the pharaohs always wanted to be remembered by massive monuments. You’ll find the Sphinx guarding the majestic pyramids with his human head and lion body.

Stop for lunch in a local restaurant.

Go back to the hotel to rest and have a goodnight of sleep.

   

Good morning. After having your breakfast check-out from the hotel to be transferred to Cairo Airport to catch your flight to Luxor.

Upon arrival, our representative will be waiting to transfer you to the West Bank to start the visits.

Start the tour with The Valley Of The Kings, where you’ll find over 62 the tombs of the greatest pharaohs and most powerful nobles. As the ancient Egyptians believed in the afterlife, they prepared their tombs for their next world.

Then heading to the only Egyptian Queen’s biggest achievement, The Temple Of Queen Hatshepsut, located at the cliff of El Deri El Bahri, the Queen’s architect Senmout designed this temple at an exceptional place surrounded by mountains, to immortalize her name.

Then on your way to the cruise stop by The Two Colossi of Memnon, they are massive stone statues of Amenophis III; the Romans called it Memnon after the hero of the Trojan War from Greek Mythology.

After finishing the visits, you’ll be transferred to the Nile cruise, where you’ll be staying in for a few days.

Check-in to the cruise and enjoy your meals. Goodnight.

   

Eat your breakfast on board then depart to explore the eastside.

Start the east tour with the Great Temple of Karnak; it was built gradually over 2,000 years, starting at the Middle Kingdom till the Ptolemaic period, dedicated to the god Amen.

After that, visit Luxor Temple, which was built by Amenophis III and later continued by Rameses II. It used to be the home of the Roman Government in the area during the Roman era.

Return to the cruise to start sailing to Edfu via Esna Lock.

All meals will be served on board; don’t miss them. Enjoy your stay.

   

After eating your breakfast, you’ll depart to make a visit at Edfu.

Back on board to resume sailing to Kom Ombo, while eating your lunch.

As soon as you arrive, you’ll visit the uniquely double designed Temple of Kom Ombo that was built in dedication to two Gods, Sobek, the crocodile, and Haroeris, the falcon.

Return to the ship for dinner and spend the night.

   

When arriving at Aswan, visit the High Dam, which was built between 1960 and 1971 to rescue Egypt from the floods and drought, but it resulted in submerging many historical sites.

Then visit one of the temples that were saved from being submerged after building the High Dam, Philae Temple that was removed to a higher place, to Agilkia Island. The temple was dedicated to goddess Isis.

    Egypt was on the top of my bucket list, and thanks to Tripidays Egy Tours it comes true. My itinerary was full of visits, activities, and fun. The Great Pyramids of Giza makes you wonder and admire. The trip to Luxor and Aswan was awesome. Who hadn’t travel to Egypt yet, is missing a lot. Thank you Tripidays.
