First day: a visit to Luxor’s attractions
We will pick you up from your accommodation in Cairo and fly you out to begin your two-day journey to Luxor and Aswan. Your own Egyptologist guide will meet you at the Luxor airport and accompany you while you explore the city’s tourism highlights, which include:
The Kings’ Valley
The Valley of the Kings, which contains the tombs of the great pharaoh Ramses II and the young pharaoh Tutankhamen, is the ultimate resting place of Egypt’s kings from the 18th to the 20th dynasty. The tombs were fully furnished with everything a monarch may want in the afterlife in terms of material things. The majority of the interior decorations are still in good condition.
Temple of Hatshepsut
One of the most stunning and well-preserved of all the temples built by the Ancient Egyptians is the Hatshepsut Temple. Three floors were constructed, and two large ramps in the middle connected them.
The sole remnants of a full funerary temple are two enormous stone sculptures of King Amenhotep III known as the Colossi of Memnon. The sculptures are constructed from quartzite sandstone stones that were originally found in Cairo and transported 700 km to Luxor.
Following lunch at a restaurant with a view of the Nile in the East, you may enjoy the following with your own guide:
Temple of Karnak
The Karnak temple is the most spectacular landmark in Egypt. It is the biggest complex of temples ever constructed by humans. It stands for the culmination of the work of countless pharaohs and ancient architects. Three major temples make up the Temple of Karnak, which is spread over 247 acres of land.
After your day trip, we’ll take you to the train station so you can take a first-class train to Aswan. Once you get there, we’ll take you to your 5-star hotel in Aswan so you can spend the night.
Day Two: Visit the Attractions in Aswan
Enjoy your breakfast in the morning before we pick you up from your accommodation to explore the main sights in Aswan, beginning with:
High Dam at Aswan
It was erected over the Nile River at Aswan between 1960 and 1970, and its construction had a tremendous impact on Egypt’s economy and culture.
The Unfinished Obelisk
the biggest obelisk from antiquity. The Lateran Obelisk, which was initially at Karnak and then transported to the Lateran Palace in Rome, was ordered by Queen Hatshepsut (1508 1458 BC) to complement it.
Temple of Philae
Goddess Isis of Love and Beauty is honored in the Philae Temple. As a part of the UNESCO Nubia Campaign project, the temple complex was deconstructed and moved to the adjacent island of Agilkia. Prior to the Aswan High Dam’s completion in 1970, it and other complexes were to be protected as part of this initiative.
You will have lunch before boarding the plane for Cairo, where your adventure to Luxor and Aswan will come to a close. Note: In order to meet your demands and meet your expectations, we may add or remove any trips from your tour schedule based on your suggestions.
