Day 2: Visit the Egyptian Pyramids and fly to Hurghada.
After breakfast, prepare for a full day of nonstop attractions with one of our highly skilled tour guides to explore the greatest of Cairo historical sites, which include:
Pyramids of Giza Complex
When Egypt is mentioned, the first sight that comes to mind is the Giza Pyramids, which is why the Giza Pyramids have become the featured picture of Egypt. This absolutely renowned historical location was built during the time of the 4th dynasty and continues to astonish millions of Egypt tourists to this day.
The Great Pyramid of Giza
The Giza Plateau is famous for its three huge pyramids. The Great Pyramid of King Cheops, on the other hand, remains the highest edifice in the ancient world. In addition to its massive size, the Great Pyramid was built using over 2,300,000 blocks of stone to serve as Pharaoh Cheops’ last resting place and secure storage for his splendid riches.
Sphinx of Giza
The Great Sphinx is the second most famous landmark on the Giza Plateau. It is the biggest representation of the Giza Plateau and is believed to be dedicated to Pharaoh Chephren. The terrified Sphinx became famous because of its unusual construction, as the statue is designed as a human head lion as a symbol of power and knowledge.
The Temple of the Valley
It’s also one of the Giza Pyramids Complex’s best-preserved colossal features. It was initially built as a funerary temple for Pharaoh Cheops and his family members, but it later became one of the most prominent purification and mummification institutions in Ancient Egypt, preparing the king’s mummy for the next world.
Rest in an Egyptian luxurious restaurant while enjoying a delicious meal, then go to:
Step Pyramid of Saqqara
No trip to Giza is complete until you see the first pyramid ever erected in Egypt. The most notable accomplishment of King Djoser was the construction of the Saqqara Step Pyramid during the 3rd dynasty. This 203-foot-tall stepping-stone structure has six magnificent tiers.
Memphis City served as Egypt’s capital during the Old Kingdom era, when the deity Ptah was worshiped. This imperial city was known as the “White Wall,” referring to the king’s palace, which was composed of whitewashed stones. The name “Memphis” was supposed to be a Greek term that translates to “Men-Nefer” in ancient Egyptian, which means “constant and lovely.”
You will be transported to the airport to travel to Hurghada, where you will check into a 5* hotel and spend the night.
Day Three: Hurghada Free Day
Enjoy a free day at the beach or explore the city on your own.

Temple of Karnak
The first destination in Luxor will be Karnak Temple, the largest temple ever built by man. This very unusual location is made up of three major structures spread over 247 acres of land. Its distinctiveness stems not only from its enormous size but also from the paintings and sketches that adorn its walls. Karnak, the biggest holy site, was built primarily for the adoration of Amun, Khonsu, and Mut.
Check in to a 5* luxury Nile cruise, enjoy lunch on board, and then have some free time on board. You will be taken at night to see:
Luxor Temple is a symbol of ancient civilization in the World’s Largest Outdoor Museum, a really spectacular structure in the center of Luxor City. Luxor Temple, unlike the other temples in the city, was built to rejuvenate royalty rather than to worship a deity or a figure of the kings.
Return aboard the cruise ship for the night.
Day 7: Visit Luxor West Bank Landmarks
Visit the following must-see sights in the West Bank with your tour guide:
Temple of Hatshepsut
Queen Hatshepsut is remembered as one of Ancient Egypt’s most successful pharaohs and the country’s only female monarch. Her reign was calm and wealthy, and as a consequence, she accomplished many things, one of which was her own funerary temple, which remembers all of her great efforts on its walls.
The Valley of Kings
It is an ancient burial site that has the tombs of Ancient Egypt’s rulers from Dynasties 17, 18, and 19. The Valley of the Kings is one of the most amazing monumental sights, consisting of 63 royal tombs, the majority of which were built for pharaohs and aristocracy.
The fabled Colossi of Memnon serve as the guards of Amenhotep III’s Mortuary Temple. The temple is made up of two stunning twin sculptures that sit at the gateway of Luxor and earned popularity owing to their majestic beauty.
Enjoy a delicious meal aboard your cruise ship before setting sail.
Day 8: Travel to Edfu and Kom Ombo.
Breakfast on board, followed by a horse carriage ride with your local tour guide to visit:
Temple of Edfu

Temple of Kom Ombo
It is located around 30 miles north of Aswan. The Temple of Kom Ombo is one of the most spectacular temples built during the Ptolemaic Period, primarily for the worship of Sobek and Horus.
Return to your Nile boat to continue your journey to Aswan.
Day 9: Visit Aswan City Landmarks
After breakfast, your tour guide will take you to the most famous historical sights in the Nubian city of Aswan:
The High Dam
Aswan High Dam is a stunning engineering accomplishment that was one of President Gamal Abdul Nasser’s most notable projects during his reign. The project began in 1960 and covered around 12,500 feet wide when finished in 1971, accounting for over half of the country’s electrical supply.
The Unfinished Obelisk
The Unfinished Obelisk was carved from red granite and was the most enormous obelisk ever built in Ancient Egypt. This huge monument was 140 feet long and had never been finished until a weakness in the granite was discovered, at which point it was abandoned.
Temple of Philae
Philae is one of the most spectacular temples on Agilika Island today. During the Ptolemaic Period, the temple became the focus of adoration for the goddess Isis.
You will be returned to your cruise ship for lunch and overnight.
Day ten: Drive to Abu Simbel Temples then fly to Cairo.
After receiving your breakfast boxes and checking out of the hotel, your knowledgeable tour guide will transport you in a contemporary A/C car to the following locations:
Temples of Abu Simbel
No Aswan visit is complete without seeing the Abu Simbel Temple. Abu Simbel is one of Egypt’s matchless monuments and the most visible manifestation of ancient Egyptian architecture. The temple was impressively cut into the rocks during the reign of Pharaoh Ramses II, and it consists of two twin temples, one dedicated to the monarch and the other to his inspired Queen Nefertari.
You will return to Aswan for lunch before boarding a direct flight to Cairo, where you will be transferred to a 5* hotel for check-in and overnight.

After lunch at a nice local restaurant in Cairo’s center, go to visit:
Mosque of Amr Ibn Al Aas
This is the perfect moment to visit Cairo’s oldest mosque, the “Amr Ibn Al Aas Mosque,” which is situated in the city center. The mosque was primarily designed by the Islamic leader Amr Ibn Al Aas, who brought Islam to Egypt, and it was finished by 641 AD.
The Church of the Hanging
It was established in the 9th century and is one of the most well-known Christian attractions. However, it is thought that the Hanging Church operated as a church in the third century AD and was Egypt’s earliest Coptic site.
Synagogue of Ben Ezra
Ben Ezra Synagogue is Egypt’s oldest Jewish center, built in the 9th century and located deep in the lanes of Old Cairo. Following the departure of the majority of Egypt’s Jewish population in the 1950s, the site became a tourist destination.

You will spend the night in Cairo at a 5* hotel.
Discover Islamic Cairo Attractions on Day Twelve
Let’s start your day by seeing some of Cairo’s most magnificent Islamic landmarks with your tour guide, such as:
Citadel of Salah El Din
Cairo Citadel is a magnificent fortress built during the reign of Salah EL Din Ayyubid to safeguard the city against Crusader attacks. The building of the fortress began in 1176 AD and was finished in 1182 AD.
Mosque of Mohamed Ali
When Muhammed Ali governed the kingdom, he opted to destroy the Mamluk structures inside the citadel and construct his alabaster mosque, which is now one of Cairo’s most iconic Islamic monuments, between 1830 and 1848.
After eating at a reputable local restaurant, head to the following places:
Mosque of Sultan Hassan
Sultan Hassan Mosque, constructed in the 14th century, is a genuinely outstanding example of Mamluk architecture and is located in the center of the metropolis at El Darb El Ahmar. The building’s massive size adds to its awe. However, the majority of its visitors are awestruck by its spectacular construction.
Mosque of Al Rifai
Al Rifai Mosque, situated across the street from Sultan Hassan Mosque, is one of the outstanding specimens of Islamic architecture. It was started in 1819 and finished in 1912.
You’ll spend the night at a hotel.

Kom El Shoqafa Catacombs
