Itinerary

   

At your arrival at Cairo International Airport, our representative will be there to offer you all kinds of help needed through passport control.

You'll be transported to the hotel, finish your check-in procedures, enjoy your welcome drink, and have a good night.

   

Enjoy a tasty breakfast, and get ready to start your journey.

Start your Egypt exploration with a visit to the Egyptian Museum, where you'll have a quick brief about Egyptian history while walking between more than 100.000 pieces of antiquities. Where also you can visit the famous treasure of King Tut Ankh Amen.

Then visit Salah El Din Citadel, which was built as a defensive point while facing crusades. The builder, Salah El-Din, was the leader of the Islamic army facing crusades and wanted Egypt to be his backup, so he ordered to build such a fortress in 1176. 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 en route.

   

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

Today you'll be visiting the most famous monument around the world, The Great Pyramids of Giza; people come from all around the world to see these huge structures; they are the tombs of Cheops, Chephren, and Myckerinus. It's such a mystery how they could build such buildings from more than 4000 years, without any equipment, nowadays it's still considered a challenging project to do.

Then visit Memphis, founded by the Pharaoh Menes, to be the first capital of united Egypt.

And after all, you'll be able to see the first attempt to build a pyramid while visiting Sakkara Complex. It was a necropolis from the old Kingdom, and where you can find Djoser Pyramid or the Step pyramid, built in the 27th century BC during the Third Dynasty.

Lunch en route.

Back to the hotel, and enjoy your night.

   

Wake up early, check-out from the hotel, then you'll be transported to the Airport to take a flight to Aswan.

Upon arrival, our representative will transfer to the Lake Nasser Cruise, check-in, and take your lunch on board.

Visit Abu Simbel Temples and city, one of many marks left by King Ramses The Great, but maybe this is his best. The main temple is dedicated to the King himself, and it's where a unique phenomenon takes place twice a year, the sun rays penetrate to the inner sanctuary to illuminate the King's Face on his birthday and coronation day. Besides this temple, you'll find another smaller one but still great, "Nefertari Temple," the King's favorite wife. This area had been saved by UNESCO from Nile floods due to the construction of the High Dam.

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.

   

While taking breakfast, you'll be sailing to KasrIbrim.

KasrIbrim, the ruins of a famous city, had tremendous economic and religious importance in the 8th century.

Then visit The Temple Of Amada, the oldest Temple built in Nubia, built by Pharaoh Thutmosis III, who had made the Greatest Egyptian empire. The Temple was 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 leading avenue to the temple has many sphinx statues on both sides, that's why it was called by that name, as Seboua means lions, and the sphinx is a statue of a lion body with a

Then visit Dakka Temple, the house of wisdom, it was where god Thoth was worshipped as the god of wisdom.

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

Visit The Temple Of Kalabsha: it was built during the Romans' reign, around 30 BC, dedicated to Mandulis, a lower Nubian god.

Then visit Temple Of Beit El Wali, the first of all King Ramses II constructions, 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.

   

After breakfast, you'll be checking-out from the cruise and head to Aswan.

Visit The High Dam; was built to protect from Nile floods and to produce electricity.

Then visit Philae Temple, dedicated to the goddess Isis. It has been moved from its original location by UNESCO to save it from Nile floods.

Want some rest? You'll be transported to a hotel in Aswan, check-in, and have a good night.

   

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

Upon arrival, you'll check-in at a hotel and be transported to Luxor west bank to start your journey. It's believed that Luxor alone has a third of all the world's monuments and artifacts.

Visit the Valley of the Kings; it's where Kings of the new Kingdom were buried with their treasures so that they could go through the afterlife. You'll be able to go inside three of these tombs. (excluded Tut Ankh Amon's tomb)

The Temple Of Queen Hatshepsut, one of the most amazing temples, it has an exceptional location beneath the cliffs at Deir el-Bahari, with a brilliant design made by Senmout, who was the trusted man of the Queen, and maybe more than that.

And finally, the two Colossi of Memnon are ruins of an old destroyed temple, depicting pharaoh Amenhotep III, who reigned in Egypt during the Eighteenth Dynasty.

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

   

Good morning, enjoy your breakfast, and then get ready to complete your tour around Luxor's many attractions.

Today you'll visit Karnak Temple, it was built by many Kings over 2000 years, and it's where you can find some apparent marks of King Ramses II. While wandering there, you could get lost between its 134 columns, which are forming a maze.

Then visit Luxor Temple, founded by King Amenophis III and the great Ramses II 1400 BCE. This Temple wasn't dedicated to a god unlikely the others, but instead 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.

We hope you have a safe flight back home, and we hope to see you coming again to complete the Egyptian experience.
