The best introduction to Egyptian history is through the the Egyptian Museum , where you can find more than 100.000 pieces of antiquities telling stories about how great the Pharaohs. And also, you can find the famous treasure of King Tut Ankh Amenthat has kept its quality over the centuries.

Then moved forward to a more recent era by visiting Salah El Din Citadel, built by Salah El-Din himself in 1176, and had been developed by several subsequent rulers. It has always been the seat of government in Egypt and the residence of its rulers for nearly 700 years from the 13th to the 19th centuries. And also, it’s where you can find Mohamed Ali Mosque, built in the 19th century by Mohamed Ali Pasha, that will amaze you with its magnificent Islamic architecture.

Conclude your day by a free walk tour in the open market Khan El Khalili, where you can buy a nice souvenir for your family and friends.

Lunch will be served during visits.

   

Still in the capital, still more to explore, have your breakfast, and get ready for another adventure.

When you hear about Egypt, the first thing that jumps into your mind is the photo of the Pyramids. That’s where you’re going to start your visits for today. The Great Pyramids, three majestic Pyramids aged more than 4000 years old, considered once as one of the seven wonders of the world. Cheops, Chephren, and Myckerinus were laying there comfortably after creating these masterpieces, guarded by the the Sphinx .

Don’t leave this area before visiting Memphis, the oldest capital ever known, founded by the Pharaoh Menes, who was also the founder of the Early Dynastic.

What a magical monument! But to know from where it was inspired, a visit to Sakkara Complex is a must, where you can see the first trial to build a pyramid ever, Zoser Pyramid or also known as The Step Pyramid, built in the 27th century BC during the Third Dynasty.

Lunch will be served during visits.

Back to the hotel, and enjoy your night.

Abu Simbel Temples and city, built by King Ramses II, to be worshiped as a god. This Temple was designed to celebrate the King’s birthday and coronation day by illuminating the King’s figure by the first rays of the sunrise on these two days, an unbelievable phenomenon. And also, you can find a smaller temple built by the King to his wife, Nefertari.

In the evening, you’ll be able to attend a unique show; the story of the Temple will be told by sound while lights are describing what you hear on the Temple’s walls and statues, The Sound & Light Show.

Back to the cruise, have a delicious dinner, and good night.

Then continue to another area called Amada, where you can visit The Temple Of Amada, the oldest Temple built in Nubia, by Pharaoh Thutmose III of the 18th dynasty and dedicated to Amun and Re-Horakhty.

Back to the boat, have your dinner while sailing toward another place called Wadi El Seboua.

Have a good night.

   

After breakfast, you’ll be able to start the exploration of this area called Wadi El Seboua, which means The Valley Of Lions.

Visit the Temple Of Wadi El Seboua, the name referring to the avenue of sphinxes that leads up to this Temple, which was built during the reign of Ramses II.

Then visit another temple in the same area called Dakka Temple, dedicated to Thoth, the god of wisdom in the ancient Egyptian pantheon.

After these visits, go back to the cruise. You’ll be sailing toward Kalabsha.

Where you’ll be able to witness another temple, The Temple Of Kalabsha, built around 30 BC, dedicated to Mandulis, a lower Nubian god.

Then visit Temple Of Beit El Wali, first Temple built by Ramses II, dedicated to the deities of Amun-Re, Re-Horakhty, Khnum, and Anuket. It had been saved from inundation caused by the construction of the High Dam.

Back to the cruise, enjoy your comfort stay, and have a nice dinner.

Visit The High Dam, built between 1960 and 1971; it’s an essential source of electricity in Egypt, and armor from the Nile flood, with a large reservoir behind it, Lake Nasser, largest artificial lake in the world.

Then visit Philae Temple, another temple saved from inundation of the Nile waters by UNESCO, moved from its original island to Agilkia Island.

This Temple is dedicated to goddess Isis.

Want some rest? You’ll be transported to a hotel in Aswan, check-in.

   

After breakfast and checking-out, take a bus toward Luxor .

Upon arrival, you’ll check-in at a hotel there and be transported to the west bank to start your journey.

Visit the Valley of the Kings, also known as the Valley of the Gates of the Kings, where you’ll explore a lot of tombs of the Pharaohs and powerful nobles of the new kingdom, like tombs of Ramses II, Ramses III, Seti I and the famous Tomb of King Tut Ankh Amen .

The Temple Of Queen Hatshepsut, located beneath the cliffs at Deir el-Bahari, this mortuary temple was dedicated to Amun and Hatshepsut, where you can admire the architecture of the great Senmout.

And finally, the two Colossi of Memnon, two massive stone statues of the pharaoh Amenhotep III, who reigned in Egypt during the Eighteenth Dynasty.

Treat yourself as one of these kings at your luxurious stay, and good night.

   

Good morning, enjoy your breakfast, and then get ready for another day of greatness.

Today you’ll visit Temple of Karnak, where you can get lost between its 134 columns, 2000 of construction, starting with Senusret I in the Middle Kingdom, and continuing into the Ptolemaic period.

Then visit Luxor Temple, founded by Amenophis III and the great Ramses II 1400 BCE. This Temple wasn’t dedicated to a god unlike the others; instead, it was dedicated to the rejuvenation of kingship.

Then you’ll be able to enjoy a relaxing evening, and enjoy a peaceful sleep.

   

Wake up early, take your breakfast, and you’ll be transported to Luxor Airport, where you’ll take a flight to Cairo and then back home.

    I still can’t get over my trip to Egypt, I enjoyed myself a lot there. Nubian village was my favourite city on the trip, the people are very kind there, their culture is unique, it is not like anything I have seen before. I can’t wait to travel to Egypt again. Thank you so much Tripidays Egypt tours for such a lovely trip.
