Itinerary

   

Welcome to Egypt, home of civilization. Upon arrival, you'll find our representative ready to help you through passport control.

Have a good night.

   

After breakfast, check-out from the hotel and get ready for a culture mix.

Visit the Egyptian Museum. You'll go deep into Egyptian history and know stories about the Pharaohs and their life. A special section in the museum will blow your mind, the King Tutankhamun treasures exposed there, with the mask made from pure gold, weighing more than 11 Kilograms.

Then you'll be moving to another area, another era, by visiting Salah El Din Citadel. It was built by the Islamic leader Salah El-Dine to protect Egypt during the crusades. Don't miss going inside the Mohamed Ali Mosque, a magnificent mosque built by Mohamed Ali Pasha in the 19th century.

Finish your day tour by a walking tour through the open market Khan EL Khalili, where you can buy yourself a souvenir while enjoying the old Islamic architecture.

Lunch will be served during visits.

Then you'll be transported to the rail station, to take a sleeping train from Cairo to Aswan. Enjoy dinner onboard, and have a good night.

   

Good morning onboard; while the train is still crossing Egypt, enjoy breakfast.

Upon arrival, you'll be on track of visits, starting with the High Dam, a vast modern building saving a huge amount of water behind it in a large reservoir called Lake Nasser, and became an essential electricity source in Egypt.

Then you'll visit a special Temple, Philae Temple, which was removed entirely from its original location to Agilkia Island to save it from the Nile floods.

Then you'll be transported to the Nile cruise, where you'll enjoy moving accommodation through the great river Nile. Check-in, and get some rest, and have your lunch on board.

In the afternoon, enjoy a Felucca ride on the Nile.

Back to your floating hotel, have dinner while you start sailing.

Good night.

   

Good morning; have your breakfast on board; you're halfway between Aswan and Luxor, but still, more to see.

Visit Kom Ombo Temple, dedicated to two gods, Sobek, god of fertility symbolized by a Crocodile, and god Haroeris (Horus), the god of the sky.

Then back to the Nile cruise, have your lunch while sailing toward Edfu.

Visit Edfu Temple, dedicated to Horus the Falcon, built in the Ptolemaic Kingdom between 237 and 57 BCE.

Then back on board another time, enjoy your dinner, while the boat is sailing to Luxor via Esna Lock.

Have a good night.

   

After having breakfast on board, get ready for something special; you're in an open museum city.

Start your visits by going to the west bank and visit The Valley Of The Kings, where kings and nobles of the new kingdom were buried; you'll be able to visit the tomb of King Tut Ankh Amen, the most famous tomb in this area.

Then visit Temple Of Queen Hatshepsut and see the fantastic architecture of its designer Senmout. This temple was dedicated to god Amen and Hatshepsut herself.

Before going back to the Nile cruise, make a stop at two huge statues, two Colossi of Memnon, these statues are depicting King Amenophis III, and it's all we have now from an old temple.

Back to the boat, get some rest, and have a tasty lunch to charge your energy; we're not done yet.

Hop off board to visit one of the most magnificent temples, Karnak Temple, take care not to get lost between all its columns. It's a maze itself. Some many Kings built it from different periods. For instance, during 2000 years, a lot of kings were adding to it.

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

Back to the Nile cruise, enjoy a great dinner, and have a good night.

Upon arrival, check-in at the hotel, enjoy the sea view, and get ready for a unique experience.

   

Good morning; have your breakfast.

Sharm has one of the most fabulous shores in the world; enjoy the sun and water.

   

Have your breakfast at the hotel.

Sharm is widely known by its clear and pure seawater and the colorful maritime life beneath this water surface; you can enjoy one of the optional water activities, such as snorkeling, diving, parasailing, or even go on a yacht into the open sea.

   

Good morning. Have your breakfast.

Another day on the sea, go swim into the blue, or just get tanned on the beach.

While in Egypt, The Great Pyramids of Giza couldn't be missed for sure, it's one of the seven wonders of the ancient world; Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinus are the names of the main three pyramids in that area. All guarded by a huge statue of a human head with a lion body called the Sphinx.

Afterward, drop into the Sakkara area to visit the oldest pyramid ever to be built, The Step Pyramid, or Djoser Pyramid. This area is a vast necropolis where you can visit a lot of tombs of several Kings and nobles from the old kingdom.

Then move to Memphis, the oldest capital of Egypt, and see the other Sphinx of Queen Hatshepsut and the most giant statue of King Ramses II ever found even after losing its legs.

Lunch will be served during visits.

Then back to the hotel, get some rest.

Good night.

   

Unfortunately, good time flies quickly. Our trip comes to an end, but Egypt will leave a mark on your memories.

    Our experience with Tripidays had exceeded our expectations. We were planning for a trip to celebrate our 10th anniversary, and we wanted to experience something new. We found what we want at Tripidays egy tours, through their wide trips selection, covering every touristic spot around Egypt. Our anniversary couldn’t be any better, we really loved Sharm El Sheikh and its fabulous beaches. The company representatives were so helpful and professional, the trip was simply perfect. Thank you Tripidays
