Temple Of Queen Hatshepsut, the excellent location with the brilliant design of Senmout are making this temple a masterpiece, and for sure, the fact that it belongs to a woman who was ruling Egypt is making it so unique.

All-day sailing, all meals served on board.

   

Luxor again, it still has something to tell you. After breakfast, you’ll go on visits again.

The Great Temple Of Karnak, this magnificent temple built during 2000 years, it’s hard to give it an exact age nor an exact builder, as several Kings and rulers were participating in the construction, don’t miss your way while walking between the 134 columns.

Luxor Temple, King Amenophis III, and the great Ramses II had built this temple to be where they could rejuvenate their kingship.

Back to the Nile cruise, enjoy dinner, and have a good night.
