In the morning, you'll be transferred to Cairo Airport to fly to Aswan.

Our representative will meet you at the airport and transfer you to start the visits as soon as you arrive.

The High Dam, it was built between 1960 and 1971 to save Egypt from the disasters resulting from the flooding of the Nile. The Dam produced behind Lake Nasser which is one of the largest artificial lakes in the world.

Philae Island : It has been moved entirely stone by stone to Agilkia Island, a very complicated process that took years to accomplish. The temple was dedicated to the Goddess Isis and built during the Ptolemaic era. Some buildings are dating from the reign of Taharqa.

Next, we will transfer you to the Nile cruise that you'll be staying in for a few days to check-in and enjoy your lunch.

Get ready for a relaxing Felucca ride in the afternoon on the peaceful Nile.

Back on board for dinner and to spend the night.

Back to the cruise to continue sailing to Edfu, the next stop.

As you arrive, visit Edfu Temple , one of the best-preserved temples. It was built during the Ptolemaic Kingdom between 237 and 57 BCE. The temple was dedicated to god Horus, the Falcon.

Back to the ship to resume sailing to Luxor via Esna lock.

Meals will be served on board. Enjoy your meals.

   

Welcome to Luxor. Finish your breakfast and get ready to explore the city starting from the west side.

The first stop will be The Valley of the Kings, which acted as an important burial site for the famous Kings of the Egyptian New Kingdom for nearly 500 years from the 16th to 11th century BC.

The next stop will be the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut , created by the Queen's architect Senmout at an exceptional place surrounded by the mountain at El Deir El Bahari, designed after the temple of Mentuhotep II, but on a much larger scale.

On the way back to the cruise, make a stop at the two colossi of Memnon; they are massive stone statues that weigh about 720 tons and 18 meters high, of Amenophis III.

Back on board to enjoy your tasty lunch and have some rest.

You still have a lot of free time in the day; you can explore the city with your perspective.

Make sure to return to have your dinner and goodnight.

   

Have a delicious breakfast, then check-out from the cruise to explore the east side of Luxor.

The Great Temple of Karnak , where you'll get lost between its 134 columns, took 2,000 years to construct that temple; this is the modern name of the Temple of Amun at Thebes, the ancient capital of Egypt.

Luxor Temple, the only temple that wasn't dedicated to a God but instead to the rejuvenation of Kingship, as they say, It might have been the temple where the Pharaohs of Egypt were crowned.

When you finish the visits, you'll have a road trip for about 290 Km away to head to Hurghada.

Upon arrival, check-in at the hotel and enjoy your stay.

   

After that long week of traveling and exploring, you need some time off to catch your breath and enjoy yourself for a while; there is no better place to do that than by the clear sea.

   

Since you had some time off, you can still have a more relaxing time and get a tan or enjoy some of the water activities at this fantastic city with crystal clear water and colorful fish. It's your call.
