Tour Itinerary

Arrival at the Cradle of Civilization on Day One

The first day of your once-in-a-lifetime 8-day Egypt Easter vacation will begin when you arrive at Cairo airport, where an employee from “Egypt Tours Inn” will help you in completing all of your passport control requirements as well as baggage identification and carry. A private air-conditioned automobile will drive you to your 5* hotel reservation for check-in.

You will begin your Easter experience in Egypt with a magical Dinner cruise on the heavenly Nile, where you will be able to relax and enjoy a memorable colorful belly dancing show with a folklore band featuring a hypnotic Tannoura spin in keeping with Egypt’s whirling dervishes tradition, before returning to your hotel for the night.

Day 2: Marvel at Ancient Egyptian Wonders

Enjoy your breakfast and check out of your accommodation before beginning your second day in the arms of the Giza pyramids complex, where time seems to have stopped in front of these wonderful marvels.

Giza Pyramids Complex

The Giza pyramids complex is like a vault where all of ancient Egypt’s secrets have been kept safe for almost 4000 years. Three major pyramids, six smaller pyramids, the Great Sphinx, and the eternal Valley Temple make up the complex.

The Great Pyramid of Giza

The enormous pyramid of Khufu is a living testimony of the ancient Egyptians’ ability to attain longevity and brilliance. It was built in 2580 BC over 20 years, using 2,300,000 pieces of limestone, each weighing 2.5 tons, and a workforce of roughly 100,000 free skilled craftsmen. It is the last surviving construction of the ancient world’s seven wonders. It stands at 147 meters (481 feet), making it the world’s tallest structure for 3800 years, until the completion of the Lincoln Cathedral in England in 1311.

The Great Sphinx of Giza

The Great Sphinx is an Egyptian hero shown in the form of a legendary monster known as the sphinx, which has the body of a lion and the head of a man thought to be King Khafre to symbolize his strength and wisdom. The sphinx is 73 meters (240 feet) tall and 19 meters (66 feet) wide, and it was carved out of a massive solid limestone boulder.

The Valley Temple

The Valley Temple is where the mummification procedure takes place. It was built within Egypt’s old kingdom (2686-2134 BC) the complex, and thanks to the ancient Egyptians, the valley has become one of the best-preserved archeological sites of the ancient Egyptian civilization, as well as a source of important information about the mummification process and ancient Egyptian mortuary rituals.

Before heading to the following locations, lunch will be provided at a local restaurant:

Step Pyramid of Saqqara

The Saqqara Step Pyramid is an architectural masterpiece credited with ushering in ancient Egypt’s golden period of pyramid building. It was created by Pharaoh Djoser’s genius vizier Imhotep. It features a one-of-a-kind design with six steps that rise to a height of 62 meters, and it is surrounded by a vast complex with magnificent decorations and lovely ceremonial buildings.

Memphis City

Memphis, where history was written and Egypt became the formal capital, was created by King Menes Narmer to be the lifeblood of the two countries. It was the abode of the deity Ptah, patron of creativity and art, and was known as the Land of Endurance and Beauty. It has items going back over 4000 years from some of ancient Egypt’s most famous figures, like Ramsess II, as well as huge temples dedicated to gods like Aton and Hathor.

You will depart for Cairo airport at the conclusion of the day to catch your flight to Aswan, where you will check into your hotel reservation for the night.

Discover the Timelessness of Magical Aswan on Day Three.

Enjoy your breakfast at your hotel, then accompany your tour guide on day three of your Easter vacation in Egypt to see some of Aswan’s main tourist sites, including:

High Dam of Aswan

The High Dam, built between 1960 and 1970 as a symbol of a new era, is a contemporary marvel. The dam was built in collaboration with the Moscow-based Hydro Project Institute to improve Nile flooding management, generate hydroelectricity, and offer more water storage for cultivation. The dam may have resulted in the loss of the famous Abu Simbel and Philae temples.

The Unfinished Obelisk

The Unfinished Obelisk resembles a historical figure who was commissioned by Queen Hatshepsut (1508-1458 BC) to stand at the Karnak temple’s entryway. It was called “Tekhenu,” which means “to pierce the sky,” and displayed how obelisks were built. It would have stood 42 meters tall and weighed 1200 tons, but the obelisk was broken during construction and is still standing today.

After eating your lunch with your tour guide, continue your trip by sightseeing.

Temple of Philae

The “Myth of Osiris” describes how Osiris, Isis’ spouse, is slain by his brother Set out of anger and jealousy, and then Osiris is revived to be the king of the underworld after Set is vanquished by Isis and Osiris’ son Hours, the falcon sky God, ushering in an era of prosperity and justice. The temple was transported to the island of Agilkia in the 1960s as part of a UNESCO-led rescue attempt to keep it from being drowned.

After that, you’ll return to your Aswan hotel for the night.

Day 4: Behold the enchantment and uniqueness of Abu Simbel Temple

On the fourth day of your Egypt Easter holiday, you will get your breakfast boxes and check out of the hotel, after which you will go to one of Egypt’s must-see locations with your tour guide:

Temples of Abu Simbel

The magnificence of Abu Simbel Temples took the form of this magnificent landmark. The “Temple of Ramesses, Beloved by Amun” was built by Ramses the Great (1279-1213 BCE) to garrison the southern boundary. The main temple is dedicated to Ramses II, and the second temple is dedicated to his wife Nefertari. The sun festival takes place on February 22nd and October 22nd each year, and the sun shines on the faces of the four seated statues of Ramses II, Ptah (God of Creation), Amun (The Creator God), and Ra (Sun God). In the mid-1960s, the temple was part of the most difficult archeological rescue mission in history, led by UNESCO.

Karnak Temple

It was known as Ipet-isu The Most Selected Of Places and Pr-Imn House Of Amon, and it was built more than 4000 years ago. It was recognized for being the biggest religious man-made building on earth, and it still is today. For more than 1500 years, it was the center of devotion for innumerable deities like Osiris, Montu, Ptah, and Isis across the ancient Egyptian monarchy.

After that, return to your hotel to eat your lunch and relax, and we will pick you up at night to enjoy:

Luxor Temple by Night

Luxor Temple shines most at night when the moon smiles upon it and reveals its lost energy in the most divine manner; it is the city’s crown jewel, displaying the artistic soul of ancient ages. It was built during the reign of Pharaoh Amenhotep III in the year 1400 BCE and was known as “Ipetresyet,” which means “southern sanctuary.” It was completely devoted to the Theban Triad’s God Amun, who represented the notion of kingship’s regeneration. The stunning rich decorations and buildings of the temple will wow you with their magnificence.

After that, you’ll return to your Luxor hotel for the night.

Day 6: Finish Your Discovery Tour in Luxor

After enjoying your breakfast and checking out of your hotel, you will spend the sixth day of your Easter holiday in Egypt seeing all that the fascinating city of Luxor has to offer, including:

The Kings’ Valley

The Valley of the Kings is a mirror dimension or doorway that exists outside of time and space, where souls and mysteries are buried. It was where the greatest kings and queens of Egypt’s new monarchy were buried (1570-1070 BC). It comprises 63 tombs containing diverse valuables, antiques, sculptures, enticing decorations, and the bones of pharaohs like as Rameses (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, VIII, IX, X), Amenhotep I, Hatshepsut, and Tutankhamun, the most visited being Ramses the Great.

Temple of Hatshepsut

Hatshepsut Temple, also known as Djoser-Djeseru “Holy of Holies,” is a surreal marvel out of this world, a vision of the splendor and beauty of Queen Hatshepsut, one of ancient Egypt’s most successful monarchs. The temple was constructed under the nascent kingdom in 1479 BC and took 15 years to finish.

Memnon’s Colossi

The Colossi of Memnon are two gigantic slabs of quartzite sandstone that measure 18 meters (60 feet) tall and weigh 720 tons apiece and are shaped like Pharaoh Amenhotep III (1386-1350). For many years, they have served as guardians for the city of Luxor. A massive earthquake in 27 BC ruined the colossi, which was reconstructed in 199 AD.

Lunch will be given at an oriental restaurant, after which you will be transferred to Luxor airport to catch your flight to Cairo. Upon arrival, check into a 5* hotel for an overnight stay.
