Day Two: Visit the Egyptian Museum and the Pyramids
After a wonderful breakfast, your private tour guide will take you on an experience of a lifetime as you travel the area that is home to what is regarded as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The main sights that you will see throughout your trip are as follows:
Giza Pyramids Complex
Your first stop on your trip will be the Giza Pyramids complex, which has been there for more than four thousand years and is one of the oldest tourist destinations in the world. The complex consists of the huge sphinx, the palace of immortality, the Valley Temple, six smaller pyramids, and three large pyramids.
The Great Pyramid
The opportunity to see one of the Seven Wonders of the World has never been greater. Of all the pyramids in the Giza Complex, the Great Pyramid of Khufu is the biggest and most spectacular. King Khufu resolved to carry on the construction efforts of his father Sneferu, which led him to construct a genuinely unique attraction.
The Sphinx of King Chephren
Another spectacular structure erected during King Khafre’s reign is the Giza Sphinx. Its face has the traits of the monarch himself since it is the Son of Khufu. Additionally, it features a lion’s body to create the sense that it is a powerful guard protecting the Giza Pyramids.
The Valley Temple
Don’t pass up the opportunity to visit the Valley Temple and take in some tales from your tour guide about how the ancient Egyptians were able to develop such an incredibly accurate system based on certain beliefs. You must have heard many stories about the mummification and purification of the mummies that belonged to the ancient Egyptians of the ancient dynasties, and the site that witnessed those wonderful processes was the Valley Temple.
We will then take you to a fantastic restaurant with a view of the Pyramids and the Nile where you can have a delicious lunch before joining your Egyptologist guide on a tour to uncover the mysteries of the striking:
The Egyptian Museum
Enjoy your time to the fullest while you’re in such a fantastic location as it contains some of the largest ancient Egyptian collections, including some sought-after treasures that were once buried with the dead, and among the most famous treasures that have been found, the Golden Mask of King Tutankhamun.
After your trip is done, we’ll take you back to your hotel in Cairo so you may spend the night.
Day Three: Fly to Luxor, see the attractions on the East Bank of Luxor, then board the cruise
Enjoy your breakfast at your 5-star hotel in Cairo before being transferred to the airport so you can take a flight to Luxor. When you get there, you’ll meet up with your tour guide to begin another breath-taking excursion to some of the best sights on the East Bank of Luxor, like:
Temple of Karnak
This was formerly a religious temple that served three important gods (Amun, his wife Mut, and their son Khunso). Given that the three temples within occupy more than 200 acres, it is the biggest religious structure ever created by a man and a genuinely remarkable structure. Once you have checked in to your 5-star luxury Nile cruise and had time to unwind, we will bring you to another stunning tourist destination that draws visitors from all over the globe in the evening.
Luxor Temple by Night
The Luxor Temple is a must-see when in Luxor, and it is generally agreed that nighttime is the finest time to come. Particularly, walking around the row of sphinxes in front of the temple will give you the impression that you are in an exciting action film.
We will return you to your Nile Cruise for the night when your trip is complete.
Day Four: Visit the West Bank of Luxor Attractions:
You will enjoy your breakfast on the Nile Cruise the next morning before joining your tour guide to view some of the top West Bank of Luxor sights, such as:
Wonderful Valley of the Kings
The hypnotic Valley of the Kings is one of the top attractions on the West Bank of Luxor. It is home to the magnificent tombs of several famous ancient Egyptian pharaohs, including Tutankhamun, Ramses VI, Ramses II, Seti I, and many others. Your tour guide will explain everything in detail as you visit these tombs so you can gain a general understanding of how the ancient Egyptians lived.
Temple of Hatshepsut
When Queen Hatshepsut ruled Egypt during the 18th dynasty, she attempted to build a mortuary temple for herself that would not be forgotten, and this is really what we got, a genuine masterpiece. This is one of her most stunning accomplishments.
These two statues were created by King Amenhotep III, who began an amazing building project in Egypt. He constructed a huge temple for himself with these two statues in front of the temple for security purposes, but the entire mortuary temple was destroyed by various natural disasters, leaving only these two colossi, known as Memnon, standing.
After that, you will be returned to your Nile Cruise where you may have lunch while sailing and spend the remainder of the day and the night.
Tour of the Edfu and Kom Ombo Temples on Day Five
You will board a horse-drawn carriage with your tour guide early in the morning to go to:
Temple in Edfu
On the West Bank of the Nile, it is one of the most intriguing temples. The inscriptions on the walls of the Edfu Temple, which was constructed between 237 and 57 BC under the Ptolemaic Kingdom, provide some of the most valuable insights into the language, myth, and religion of Egypt throughout the Hellenistic period. You will then begin sailing in the direction of Kom Ombo. When you are there, you’ll go with your tour guide to see the distinctive:
Temple of Kom Ombo
It is a distinctive twin temple that was also constructed in the Ptolemaic era and has some alterations from the Roman era. The two temples were devoted to Horus the Elder and the crocodile deity Sobek.
Once your spectacular tour is done, you will return to your cruise to begin sailing toward Aswan, where you will spend the night aboard your Nile Cruise.
Day Six: Visit the Attractions in Aswan
Enjoy your breakfast before leaving for the Nubian City of Aswan, which is a charming destination for most travelers. Among the highlights of your vacation there with us will be:
The High Dam
It is a contemporary Egyptian achievement that was built with the financial assistance of UNESCO to safeguard the ancient Egyptian monuments from the threat of the Nile’s flood. It also has a significant impact today because it is Egypt’s primary source of power and greatly enhances the quality of life there.
The Unfinished Obelisk
It is the biggest obelisk ever constructed by a man and was created by Queen Hatshepsut to accompany the Lantern Obelisk. Originally, she planned to transport it to Karnak to be set in front of the temple’s gates, but when the top of the obelisk shattered, she chose to keep it in Aswan.
Temple of Philae
On Aglika Island near Aswan, there is a very beautiful temple that was relocated there during the building of the High Dam. The Ptolemaic Dynasty is when Philae Temple gained notoriety as the hub of the goddess Isis’ religion, which is what makes it so intriguing.
You will then be returned to your Nile Cruise where you will spend the remainder of the day eating lunch and sleeping.
A visit to the Great Abu Simbel Temple on day seven.
You will depart from your Nile Cruise in the morning, and after that, you will go to Abu Simbel with your tour guide. When you arrive, you’ll find the enchanted:
Abu Simbel Temples
The biggest, largest, and most spectacular temples of ancient Egypt are now available for your visit. There are two magnificent temples there; one of them is dedicated to King Ramses II, who made it a masterpiece by tying it to his birthday and coronation days during what is now known as the Sun Festival. He also constructed a tiny temple for his wife Nefertari that was devoted to her to express his profound love for her.
After your tour is done, we’ll take you to the Aswan International Airport so you can catch your flight back to Cairo, where we’ll take you to your hotel for the night.
