Start your Egypt easter trip in the evening with a Dinner Cruise with your tour guide, then sit back and relax while watching a colorful belly dancing show with a folklore band, complete with the unforgettable Tannoura spin, in keeping with Egypt’s whirling dervishes tradition, before returning to your hotel for the night.
Day Two: Marvel at the Egyptian Pyramids’ Awe.
Check out of the hotel after breakfast and meet your own Egyptologist tour guide to begin your Easter exploration trip in Egypt by seeing the most prominent Cairo tourist spots such as:
Pyramids of Giza Complex
The complex features three large pyramids, Cheops’, Chefren’s, and Mykerinus’, as well as six smaller pyramids, the big sphinx, and the Valley temple. The structure was built during the 4th dynasty, 2400 years ago.
The Great Pyramid of Giza
The Great Pyramid was built by King Khufu and is the oldest and biggest of the three pyramids on the Giza plateau, as well as the only one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World to have survived intact. The enormous pyramid is 147 meters tall, was erected with 2,300,000 stones, and took twenty years to complete.
Sphinx of Giza
The Great Sphinx is the world’s biggest statue, measuring 73 meters long, 19 meters broad, and 20 meters tall. It is the world’s oldest monumental sculpture.
The Temple of the Valley
The sole extant granite funerary temple used by Ancient Egyptians for mummification on the Giza plateau.
Proceed to a neighborhood restaurant in Cairo for lunch. Then we shall go to see:
The Egyptian Museum
The Egyptian Museum has a remarkable collection of art dating back 5000 years. Nearly 250,000 real ancient Egyptian items are on display, including an exhibit devoted to King Tutankhamun’s wealth, gold, and jewelry collection, which was kept in his tomb for over 3,500 years.
Finally, we will bring you to Cairo airport where you will travel to Luxor and settle into a 5* hotel for the night.
Day Three: Let Your Inner Explorer Shine in Luxor City
After breakfast, continue your holiday by meeting your own Egyptologist tour guide to explore the most popular Luxor tourist sites, beginning with:
The Valley of Kings
It is the ultimate resting place of Egypt’s monarchs from the 18th to the 20th dynasties and contains the tombs of King Ramses II and King Tutankhamen. The tombs were well-stocked with all the material items that a monarch may want in the afterlife. The majority of the ornamentation within the graves has survived.
Temple of Hatshepsut
Hatshepsut Temple is one of the most stunning and well-preserved Ancient Egyptian temples. The temple was erected on three levels, with two large ramps connecting them in the center.
The sole remnants of a full funerary temple are two huge stone sculptures of King Amenhotep III. The sculptures are built from pieces of quartzite sandstone found in Cairo and transported 700 kilometers to Luxor.
Then go to an island for lunch, so your excursion includes a boat ride on the Nile River followed by a visit to:
Temple of Karnak
The Karnak temple is Egypt’s most spectacular site. It is the world’s biggest temple complex. It is the culmination of several generations of ancient builders and Pharaohs. The Temple of Karnak consists of three principal temples spread over 247 acres of land.
Then it’s back to the Luxor hotel for the night.
Discover the Decorated Temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo on Day Four.
Breakfast and check-out from the hotel in the morning, then join your private Egyptologist tour guide for a private air-conditioned car trip to Edfu and Kom Ombo temples.
Temple of Edfu
Dedicated to Horus, the Egyptian god. Edfu Temple is Egypt’s best intact Greco-Roman temple, with a “Play” depicting Horus’ victory over the wicked deity Seth on its walls.
Temple of Kom Ombo
The Kom Ombo Temple overlooks the Nile. This temple is split into two temples, each having two entrances, two hypostyle halls, and two sanctuaries.
After lunch, proceed to Aswan in your own air-conditioned vehicle to check in at a 5* hotel and spend the night.
Day 5: Visit Abu Simbel’s Magnificent Temples
Breakfast boxes are provided in the morning, followed by a private air-conditioned vehicle journey to Abu Simbel with your private tour guide.
Temples of Abu Simbel
The two Temples of Abu Simbel, with their distinct architecture, are regarded as ancient Egypt’s greatest. The Temples are rock-cut temples created during King Ramses II’s reign around 1200 B.C. The first temple is dedicated to King Ramses II, and the second to his loving wife Queen Nefertari. The sculptures and artwork that adorn both temples are breathtaking. Hand-carved pillars, wall murals, sculptures, statues, and much more make this a must-see destination.
Return to your Aswan hotel for lunch and an overnight stay.
Day Six: Marvel at the Allure of Aswan
Breakfast at the hotel, then check out and accompany the Egyptologist tour guide to begin the second portion of your Egypt Easter holiday by seeing the following tourist places in Aswan:
High Dam of Aswan
It was erected over the Nile at Aswan between 1960 and 1970, and it has had a profound impact on Egypt’s economy and culture.
The Unfinished Obelisk
The old world’s biggest obelisk. It was commissioned by Queen Hatshepsut (1508-1458 BC) to accompany the Lateran Obelisk (which was initially located at Karnak and was subsequently relocated to the Lateran Palace in Rome).
Temple of Philae
Philae temple is dedicated to the goddess of love and beauty, Isis. As part of the UNESCO Nubia Campaign initiative, the temple complex was demolished and transported to neighboring Agilkia Island, preserving it and other monuments before the installation of the Aswan High Dam in 1970.
Finally, return to Aswan to catch your flight back to Cairo and settle into a 5* hotel for the night.
