Itinerary

   

Welcome to Egypt. Hope you had a pleasant flight.

At the Airport, you’ll meet one of our representatives who’ll offer you all kinds of help through passport control.

Then you’ll be transported to the hotel, check-in while enjoying a welcome drink, and have a good night.

   

Good morning. Enjoy a nice breakfast full of calories to charge your energy for the upcoming adventure, then start your journey.

Visit the Great Pyramids of Giza; it’s a magical sight, isn’t it? Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinus built these triangular buildings to be their tombs, which gives you a hint about how they were so concerned about the afterlife and the way of burial, guarded by a huge statue of a lion with a human head, The Sphinx.

Then visit Memphis, the oldest capital ever known, where you can find the tallest statue of King Ramses II. This city was founded by the Pharaoh Menes, who was also the founder of the Early Dynastic.

Then visit the Sakkara Complex, where you can find some more pyramids; actually, you’ll find the first Pyramid ever made, Zoser Pyramid or also known as the Step pyramid, built in the 27th century BC during the Third Dynasty.

After all these visits, you will need a break, go back to the hotel, have a nice dinner, and get some rest. Good night.

   

Have your breakfast, and get ready to continue exploring the capital.

Visit The Egyptian Museum, house of 100.000 pieces of original antiquities, showing the different ages of Egyptian history. You will also find the famous treasure of King Tut Ankh Amen, which had kept its quality over the centuries.

Then go through another era of Egyptian history by visiting Salah El Din Citadel. It was built to be a powerful defense point facing the crusades by Salah El-Din himself in 1176. 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.

Then have a walking tour in Khan El Khalili open market, enjoy the Islamic architecture, and buy yourself a souvenir.

Back to the hotel, have a tasty dinner before going to bed.

   

Wake up early, have a quick breakfast, then check-out from the hotel as you’ll be transported to the Airport to take a flight to Luxor.

Upon arrival, our representative will meet you at the Airport, leads you to the Nile cruise where you’ll have a unique accommodation for the next few days, enjoy one of the Egyptian luxury tours.

Check-in, and have lunch on board.

In the afternoon, you’ll have the opportunity to relax and have some rest; this city is full of greatness; everywhere you go has a monument from the Pharaoh’s time, and it’s considered an open museum.

A nice prepared dinner will be served on board.

Good night.

   

After breakfast, you’ll be heading to the west bank.

A day tour around the best sightseeing in the city, Kings, and Queens were leaving their marks here everywhere.

Valley of the Kings, Where Kings of the new kingdom were buried, their tombs used to have a lot of treasures and any other thing that the King could use in his afterlife, but unfortunately most of them had been stolen, only a few kept intact like the famous one of King Tut Ankh Amen.

Temple Of Queen Hatshepsut, a perfect location for an ideal design designed by Senmout, the Queen’s engineer. This mortuary temple was dedicated to Amun and Hatshepsut.

The two Colossi of Memnon: depicting King Amenophis III, who reigned in Egypt during the Eighteenth Dynasty. It’s the ruins of an old destroyed temple.

Back to the Nile cruise, have lunch while it’s starting sailing for the first time. Enjoy a unique experience passing through Esna Lock.

Enjoy the rest of the day on board while proceeding to sail toward Edfu.

   

Good morning. This is Edfu. Have your breakfast so you can have a tour the first thing in the morning.

Edfu Temple: the house of Horus, the falcon god. It was built in the Ptolemaic Kingdom between 237 and 57 BCE, and it’s the best preserved one.

Back on board, sail again, this time to Kom Ombo, to visit another temple.

Kom Ombo Temple is a temple with double dedication; you’ll meet Haroeris (Horus) the Falcon another time and the crocodileSobekgod of fertility. (You can skip this visit for now, and postpone it while going back to Luxor).

Back on board where you’ll find all the meals served, and you’ll be sailing to Aswan.

   

At your breakfast, you’ll find yourself in one of the most beautiful cities in Egypt. Aswan seems to be another good day ahead.

Start by visiting The High Dam, where Aswan Nile stops flowing; it’s Egypt’s shield from floods and its main source of electricity. You can also have a look at the lake behind it, Lake Nasser, one of the biggest man-made lakes in the world, but be aware of the Egyptian giant crocodiles.

Then visit a magnificent spot, Agilkia Island, where you can find Philae Temple in its new location after being saved by UNESCO from the Nile floods.

Have lunch on board.

In the afternoon, explore the city by yourself; you’ll have free time to walk around.

Back to the boat again to spend the night and have dinner.

   

In the morning, and after breakfast, ride a felucca and move around Aswan Nile Islands.

Then the boat will be sailing again, to Luxor, no, we are not done yet.

Enjoy a comfortable stay on board with all the luxury.

   

Spend all day onboard while sailing, enjoy the Nile and sun, relax.

All-day sailing, all meals served on board.

   

Luxor another time, it still has something to tell you. After breakfast, you’ll go on visiting again.

The Great Temple Of Karnak, a splendid monument full of history, a lot of great Kings were building and adding to it; you can obviously see the marks of King Ramses II.

Luxor Temple, founded by Amenophis III and the great Ramses II 1400 BCE, wasn’t dedicated to one of the gods, instead dedicated to the rejuvenation of kingship.

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

   

Unfortunately, our trip came to its end; you’ll be transported from the Nile cruise to Luxor Airport to take your flight back home via Cairo.

Egypt has a lot to tell, and you may have to consider another visit to go deeper.
