Itinerary

   

Welcome to Egypt. As soon as you arrive, you will find our representative waiting for you to help you through passport control.

You’ll be transferred to the hotel, check-in, enjoy your welcome drink and have a good night.

   

Have your breakfast, and let’s start our tour.

We have an extended plan for the day so let’s not waste time

The Egyptian Museum, the home of over 100,000 pieces of an extensive collection of antiquities, including the face mask of the famous boy-king Tut Ankh Amen and a whole section dedicated to his treasure.

The Great Pyramids of Giza, the magnificent constructions that amazed the entire world and made them wonder, they age over 4000 years old, founded by Cheops, Chephren and Mycerinus and guarded by the Sphinx.

Khan El Khalili, the famous open bazaar that matures a few centuries, you can take a tour and buy some souvenirs for your loved ones.

After we finish our tour, you will be transported to the railway station and take the sleeping train to Luxor.

You will have dinner on the train.

   

You will have breakfast on the train.

Our representative will be waiting for you when you arrive to take you to the west bank to start our tour.

Valley of the Kings: It’s the “Gateway to the afterlife,” as the pharaohs prepared their tombs for the next world, the valley contains more than 62 graves and yet more to be discovered. You’ll get to go inside 3 of these tombs.

The Temple Of Queen Hatshepsut, the Queen’s greatest achievement, took 15 years to be built, located at Deir el-Bahari.

The Two Colossi of Memnon, two colossal statues of King Amenophis III, were guardians of a mortuary complex that was behind them.

After that, we will take you to check-in to the hotel and rest for a while. But we are not done yet.

We still got two more sites to visit in the afternoon.

Karnak Temple, the largest religious building ever built, took over 2000 years of construction, dedicated to Amun, Mut, and Khonsu “Thebes’ Triad.”

The Luxor Temple, located in Thebes, the old capital of Egypt, was founded by Amenophis III and later continued by Ramesses II.

Too much history for a day. Time to go to the hotel and have a good night.

   

Eat your breakfast, and then check-out. You have an unusual road trip waiting for you.

We will head to Aswan next, but we have a couple of stops to make first.

Visit Edfu Temple: a very well preserved temple dedicated to the falcon-headed god Haroeris.

Visit Kom Ombo Temple: a unique double designed temple dedicated to 2 gods, Sobek, the god of the Nile, and Haroeris, the god of the sky.

No more stops. We will head directly to Aswan to check-in first in a hotel and rest for a while.

Don’t waste the day in this fantastic city. You have the whole afternoon to wander around.

After you finish wandering, go to the hotel and have a goodnight.

   

Have your early breakfast, and get ready for the day.

We will take you on a day trip, 3 hours away from Aswan, but worth it. We will take you to Abu Simbel temple that was moved from its original place, rescuing it from the inundation caused by Lake Nasser. Ramses II built the temple, aligned in a way that the sun shines directly into the sanctuary to illuminate the statues of Ramesses, on his birthday and his coronation day as thought, a phenomenon that shows the greatness of the pharaohs. There is also a smaller temple built by the king to his wife, Nefertari, and it is only the second time for a king to do that.

We will return to Aswan after it for lunch and take a rest.

After it, we will take you for a heartwarming felucca ride in the Nile.

Return to the hotel, and have a goodnight.

   

Check-out from the hotel after you eat your breakfast.

We will have one more tour in this magical city before we leave.

The High Dam was built between 1960 and 1971 to prevent floods and drought, producing behind it one of the largest human-made lakes: Lake Nasser.

Visit Philae Temple: another temple that was rescued and moved to another island, a process that took years to be accomplished.

After it, you’ll be transferred to the railway station to take the sleeping train back to Cairo.

   

Have your breakfast on the train, and when you arrive, we will transport you to the hotel.

Now that you have learned a lot about Egypt’s history, time to know about its present, explore the capital like a local, and wander around.

   

As soon as you finish your breakfast, get ready to say goodbye. You’ll be transported to the Airport to go back home.

It is a trip full of history and, hopefully, good times.
