Lunch en route.

You've gone through enough centuries for a day, time to return to the hotel, and have some rest.

   

Today is all about ancient tales from the Old Kingdom.

You'll start with the Three Pyramids of Giza that stands there for over 4,000 years; you'll get to know about the three Kings who built them; Cheops, Chephren, and Myckerinus. You'll also know about the mythical creature that guards them, the Sphinx.

What about going further back in time to Memphis, the first capital ever in ancient Egypt, there are only ruins left from it.

Did you know that there are pyramids older than the ones you saw earlier? "The Step Pyramid" is one of them; it lays at Sakkara Complex and was built by King Djoser.

Lunch en route.

Back to the present, you'll drive back to the hotel to have a good night of sleep.

You'll return to the Cruise for dinner, have a lovely evening.

   

In the morning, you'll start sailing to the North, toward Kasr Ibrim, the only temple in Lower Nubia that survived the floods. It now looks like an Island you'll enjoy sightseeing.

Then you'll continue sailing to Amada Temple, the oldest temple in Nubia; King Thutmosis III of the 18th dynasty built it.

Afterward, you'll resume sailing toward Wadi El Seboua. Don't miss eating your meals on board.

   

You'll visit Wadi El Seboua first thing in the morning; you'll find it in its new location with Dakka Temples that were built during the Greco-roman period in dedication to Thoth, the god of wisdom.

You'll then sail to Kalabsha to visit Kalabsha Temple, which was built in the early Roman era around 30 BC to Mandulis, the Lower Nubian Sun god. And Bait El Wali, the rock-cut temple found by Ramses II, means in Arabic "the house of the Holy man".

All meals will be served on board.

   

After finishing breakfast, you'll check-out from the Cruise then depart to explore Aswan.

You'll stop by the High Dam of Aswan, it was built between 1960 and 1971 to prevent the Nile from flooding, and it resulted in moving some historic sites to save it from being submerged.

After that, you'll be transferred to the hotel to check-in and enjoy your dinner before you head to bed.

   

When you are done with your breakfast, check-out, you'll be transported by bus toward Luxor about 210 Km away.

The first stop will be at the Valley of the Kings, the major burial site for the greatest Pharaohs of the New Kingdom from the 16th to 11th century BC; 63 tombs have been discovered so far in the area.

The next stop will be at an amazing temple surrounded by a mountain, the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut. You'll know about the tale of the Queen who crowned herself as a Pharaoh of Egypt; she built this temple to immortalize her name.

On your way back to the hotel, you'll stop by the two colossi of Memnon. They are twin stone statues for Amenophis III of the 18th dynasty, guarding his funeral temple that disappeared throughout the ages.

You'll then return to the hotel and have some rest.

   

In the morning, you'll resume Luxor's visits but at the eastside this time.

You'll start with the Great Temple of Karnak, it was built gradually over the years, and it took about 2,000 years, starting from the Middle Kingdom until the Ptolemaic era.

Then you'll visit Luxor Temple, the temple that wasn't dedicated to a god but to the rejuvenation of Kingship.
