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

   

Breakfast at the hotel as fast as you can; then say the spell word to enter the world of treasures.

Start by the Egyptian Museum as an opening to fully understand what you’re going to witness in the next few days. It contains more than 100.000 original pieces of antiquities, with its most famous treasure of King Tut Ankh Amen.

While in Cairo, a visit to Salah El Din Citadel is a must, built by Salah El-Din, the great leader who was facing the crusades, he had built it in 1176, and it had been developed by several subsequent rulers.

Also, you couldn’t miss Mohamed Ali Mosque built in the 19th century by Mohamed Ali Pasha that will amaze you with its magnificent Islamic architecture.

A visit to the center of the old Islamic Cairo, where you can find an old market that is existing here since 1389. Khan El Khalili, where you can have a walk and buy a souvenir for your family and friends.

Back to the hotel, have sweet dreams.

   

Good morning. Don’t miss your breakfast; you are going to need all your power today.

The Great Pyramids of Giza is the shining diamond of the Egyptian treasure, survived more than 4500 years to be proof of greatness. These Pyramids were the tombs of three great kings, Cheops, Chephren, and Mykerinus — guarded by the great Sphinx with its human head and lion body.

Now you are going to visit the capital, oldest capital in Egypt and maybe ever known, Memphis, where you’ll be able to see some more precious pieces from different periods of Egyptian history, don’t miss the tallest statue of the King Ramses II.

Sakkara Complex is your next destination, where the Pyramid idea was born and developed, Zoser Pyramid or also known as the Step pyramid, was the first Pyramid to be built in history.

Enough for today, back to the hotel, have a good meal, and recover your energy, good night.

   

Wake up early, have your breakfast, and check-out to catch your flight to Aswan

Our representative will lead you to the Nile Dahabiya; to proceed the treasures hunting, it’s going to be the best way to stay for the next few days. Dahabiya or “Golden” is a sailboat, no engines used, and it only goes with the winds.

   

You are going to visit the High Dam after breakfast; this Dam was built in 1960 to be a shield from water floods and produce electricity.

Then Philae Temple, built by Ptolemy II, continued by several successors, although some shrines were built by Taharqa or Psamtik II at 7th or the 6th century BC.UNESCO had relocated it to a safe island Agilkia, after been threatened to sink due to High Dam construction.

Enjoy your first sailing, head to KomOmbo.

KomOmbo Temple is your last visit for today. This temple is dedicated to two gods, Sobek, the crocodile, the god of fertility, and the falcon god Haroeris.

Have a good sleep, and get ready for tomorrow.

   

Sailing to reach Gebel el Silsila and silsila means a chain, the beauty of these mountains will blow your mind; during the 18th Dynasty, this area had become a source of sandstone, which is the main reason why these people could build such huge buildings.

Then you’ll be sailing to Fawaza Island, in the middle of the Nile, where you can enjoy a dinner barbeque.

Then get back to the Dahabiiya and spend the night.

   

After sailing to Edfu, you’ll visit Edfu Temple, dedicated to god Horus,symbolized as a Falcon, son of Isis, and Osiris. This temple was built in the Ptolemaic Kingdom between 237 and 57 BCE.

In the afternoon, you’ll visit El Kab, where you can find some ruins of old temples from the Early Dynastic period before anything else was ever made. This place was called Nekheb in the Egyptian language that refers to Nekhbet, the goddess.

Have your dinner on board while sailing to Esna, and have a good night.

   

You can enjoy a relaxing day while sailing to Luxor.

All meals will be served on board.

   

The west bank is where you’ll start your visits to this great city

the Valley of the Kings: known as Valley of the Gates of the Kings, where you’ll find some tombs of great Kings, and you are allowed to visit 3 of them from inside. -King Tut Ankh Amen is excluded from these three-

the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, where the Queen had left us a masterpiece designed by an intelligent engineer Senmout.

the two Colossi of Memnon: they are two massive stone statues Amenophis III, who reigned in Egypt during the Eighteenth Dynasty.

In the afternoon, you’ll have the opportunity to be on your own and explore the city as a local, with no guide, so enjoy this free time and have a quick adventure.

After you figure out your way back to the boat, have a good night.

   

After your breakfast, a visit to the Great Temple of Karnak will be the best thing to do;a maze of 134 columns will let you wonder, 2000 of construction, starting with Senusret I in the Middle Kingdom and continued into the Ptolemaic period.

Last but not least, Luxor Temple, founded by Amenophis III and the great Ramses II 1400 BCE, was where the King could renew his kingship, not a god dedication.

Enjoy another free evening.

Then spend your last night on Dahabiiya.

   

Enjoy your breakfast

Check-out from the Dahabiya. You’ll be transported to Luxor Airport to take your flight back to Cairo.

The treasure hunt is complete; the real treasure is in the memory that you’ll never forget about Egypt, and it still has a lot more treasures to be explored.
