Itinerary

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.

The best way to start your Egyptian excursion is to visit the Egyptian Museum, where you'll get your first impression while walking between more than 100.000 pieces of antiquities, and don't miss the treasure of King Tut Ankh Amen.

Then visit Salah El Din Citadel. It’s a massive fortress from another era, built in 1176 during crusades by the great Islamic army leader Salah El-Din, to defend the country from the European invaders. Within the citadel walls, there's the biggest mosque in Egypt, 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.

Then back to the hotel to sleep well and get ready for tomorrow’s adventures.

   

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

It's time to visit a wonder, The Great Pyramids of Giza; these huge pyramid-shaped structures are the tombs of three great Kings, Cheops, Chephren, and Mycerinus. The Great Pyramid is considered one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.

Then visit Memphis, founded by the Pharaoh Menes, to be the first capital of united Egypt where you can also find the tallest statue of King Ramses II.

Then visit Sakkara Complex, where all the origins began. It's where the first stone on stone buildings had ever existed, and where you can find the origin of the Pyramid Idea, The Step Pyramid, or Djoser Pyramid.

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, you'll be transported 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, who was the first man ever to sign a peace treaty, learning the human beings how to end an endless war. There are two Temples in this area, the bigger one belongs to him, and the smaller belongs to his beloved wife, Nefertari. All this area had been relocated to a safer place by UNESCO, due to the high dam construction, it was risking to sink.

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, that had tremendous economic and religious importance in the 8th century.

Then visit The Temple Of Amada, it was built by King Thutmosis III, who was expanding to build an unbeaten empire, and he succeeded in his purpose. 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; to go inside the temple, you have to pass through a road with sphinx statues on both sides. This is one of the King Ramses marks.

Then visit Dakka Temple, dedicated to Thoth, the origin of wisdom for the ancient Egyptians.

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

Visit The Temple Of Kalabsha, dating from the Roman Era. It was built in 30 BC and dedicated to Mandulis, a lower Nubian god.

Then visit Temple Of Beit El Wali, the origin of King Ramses constructions; it was the first thing he ordered to be built, dedicated to the deities of Amun-Re, Re-Horakhty, Khnum, and Anuket. It had been saved from inundation caused by the creation 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’s visits.

Visit The High Dam; it's a source of pride for Egyptians; it was built in the sixties to provide water and energy for the country.

Then visit Philae Temple, dedicated to the goddess Isis. This temple 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 check-out, take a bus toward Luxor.

Upon arrival, you'll check-in at a hotel there and be transported to the west bank to start your journey.

Visit the Valley of the Kings, where some great Kings were buried in an exceptional way to be resurrected to the afterlife. You'll be able to go inside three of these tombs. (Tut Ankh Amen’s tomb is excluded)

The Temple Of Queen Hatshepsut. This temple belongs to a Queen who ruled Egypt and ordered her brilliant engineer, Senmout, to build such a masterpiece.

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. This city is an open museum; every step there is a deeper step into history.

Today you'll visit Karnak Temple; it's hard to tell who exactly had built this temple; it was built during 2000 years; the construction is history itself. While wandering there, you could get lost between its 134 columns, which are forming a maze.

Then visit Luxor Temple, founded by Amenophis III and the great Ramses II 1400 BCE, dedicated to Kingship rejuvenation.

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.

It's never goodbye. Egypt is always an open destination; it still has more to show you, so don't hesitate to visit again.
