Itinerary

Have a good night.

   

In the morning, enjoy your breakfast at the hotel and get ready to be amazed.

As an introduction to the Pharaonic world, a visit to the Egyptian Museum will be great; you’ll be walking between 100.000 pieces of antiquities, also don’t miss the Tut Ankh Amen section with all its treasures.

Then visit Salah El Din Citadel; during crusades, it was a defensive point to face the danger, built by Salah El Din, who was the leader of a huge army. Later, Mohamed Ali Pasha had built a magnificent mosque in the 19th century between the citadel walls, Mohamed Ali Mosque.

Then enjoy a walking tour between the streets of an old district and open market, Khan El Khalili, where you can buy some souvenirs and gifts for your family and friends back home.

Then you’ll be transported back to the hotel; have a good night.

   

Don’t miss your breakfast today; you’re going to need all your energy for today’s visits.

Visit the Great Pyramids of Giza; it’s one of the seven wonders of the ancient world; a lot of secrets haven't been revealed yet. These massive structures were built by Cheops, Chephren, and Myckerinus, to be their tombs and their gate to the afterlife. Without missing the magnificent statue of Sphinx, with its human head and lion’s body.

Then you’ll travel by bus to Alexandria, about 220 km away.

This city was once the center of culture and philosophy during the greek reign; it has a unique beauty and a special bond with the sea.

Upon arrival, check-in at the hotel and enjoy a free afternoon to go around the city.

Good night.

   

Wake up early, have your breakfast, then check-out from the hotel to start a unique tour in such a great city.

Start your tour by visiting Alexandria Bibliotheca; a modern library was built in 2002 with a brilliant design, to make us remember the Library of Alexandria that was in this city a long time ago, and it was the world’s destination for culture and Philosophy.

Then visit Kom El Shoqafa Catacombs, a necropolis from several periods. It contains some statues and archaeological objects, which had been rediscovered accidentally by a donkey in 1900.

And before leaving the city to visit The Roman Theatre, its capacity could reach 700 or 800 spectators, it was discovered in 1960 by luck.

Then drive back to Cairo, check-in at the hotel, and have a good night.

   

After breakfast, check-out from your hotel; you’ll be heading to the airport to take a flight from Cairo to Luxor.

Upon arrival, you’ll start the city exploration immediately, no time to waste.

Start by visiting the Valley of The Kings in the west bank of the Nile; where you’ll be walking between some tombs belonging to some great Kings who ruled Egypt from a long time ago; you can go inside three of these tombs.(excluded Tut Ankh Amon tomb.)

Then visit the Temple of Hatshepsut, dedicated to Hatshepsut, who was the first woman in history to rule a nation, and she was great. The location and design will make you feel great; it was designed by a brilliant engineer called Senmout.

Then visit the two colossi of Memnon depicting another great King from the Egyptian history, King Amenophis III, and it’s all we have now from an old temple that had been destroyed.

Now you’ll have time to get rest and have lunch after going to the Nile cruise, check-in and enjoy your accommodation on board.

You’ll have a free afternoon to discover the city by yourself.

Then back to the Nile cruise, have your dinner, and have a good night.

   

After breakfast, you’ll start another day tour in Luxor.

Visit the Great Temple of Karnak; it was where the Kings and Queens left their marks to be remembered; it’s hard to be specific about the builder because it was built during 2000 years, starting with Senusret I in the Middle Kingdom and continued into the Ptolemaic period.

Then visit Luxor Temple, founded by Amenophis III and the great Ramses II 1400 BCE; it was dedicated to the rejuvenation of kingship.

Then back to the Nile cruise, enjoy all your meals onboard while sailing to Edfu via Esna Lock.

   

Have your breakfast on board, enjoy the sail toward Edfu, admire the color of the Nile.

Then hop off to visit Edfu Temple and visit Horus the Falcon, one of the Egyptians' old gods; this Temple was built in the Ptolemaic Kingdom between 237 and 57 BCE.

Then back on board, have lunch, and get some rest.

The boat will be sailing to Kom Ombo, where you’ll visit Kom Ombo Temple and meet another god, Sobek, the crocodile, in the company of Haroeris.

Then back to the boat, have your dinner while sailing to Aswan.

   

When you wake up, you’ll find yourself in a unique city, Aswan, have your breakfast, and get ready to explore.

Visit the High Dam, built in the early sixties to save the lands from Nile floods, and save water in Lake Nasser; now it’s a source of electricity and the reason for development and prosperity.

Then hop on a motorboat to visit a unique temple in the middle of the Nile, Philae Temple, due to the High Dam construction, this Temple was threatened to be sinking, that’s why UNESCO had saved it by moving it to a new location, Agilkia Island.

In the afternoon, enjoy a felucca ride between the Nile Islands.

Then back to the boat, have your dinner.

Sweet dreams.

   

After breakfast, check-out from the Nile cruise.

You’ll be transported to the airport to take a flight from Aswan to Cairo.

In Cairo, you’ll check-in at the hotel.

Have a free afternoon to explore the capital like a local.

Good night.

   

After your breakfast, check-out from the hotel and move toward the airport to catch your flight back home.

Egypt couldn’t be visited one time only; it has more to tell and show you, consider another visit, see you later.
