Day Two: Return to an Ancient Period in Egyptian History
Following a sumptuous breakfast, your private tour guide will accompany you as you embark on the luxury adventure of a lifetime in Egypt, touring the region that is home to what is regarded as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The following are the main locations you will visit during your tour:
Giza Pyramids Complex
Your first stop on your luxury vacation to Egypt will be the Giza pyramid complex, which has been around for more than four thousand years and is one of the oldest tourist destinations in the world. Six smaller pyramids, the Great Sphinx, the House of Immortality Valley Temple, and three large pyramids make up the complex.
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 Great Sphinx
The great monarch Khafre The Son of Khufu oversaw the building of the Giza Sphinx, another spectacular structure, and as a result, the king’s characteristics can be seen on its face. Additionally, it features a lion’s body to create the sense that it is a powerful guard protecting the Giza Pyramids.
The Valley Temple
The Valley Temple was the location that witnessed these wonderful processes, so don’t miss the opportunity to visit it and take in some tales from your tour guide about how the ancient Egyptians were able to create such an unbelievable accurate system with 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.
Then, we’ll take you to a fantastic restaurant with a great view of the Pyramids and the Nile, where you can have a delicious lunch. After that, you’ll go on a tour with your Egyptologist guide to learn about the mysteries and hidden meanings of the impressive:
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 3: Take a Timeless Discovery Journey to Luxor
Enjoy your breakfast, check out of the Cairo hotel, and then we’ll drive you to the airport so you can take a flight to Luxor. Upon arrival, you will meet with your tour guide to begin the next chapter of your beautiful luxury vacation in Egypt, which will take you to some of the most popular sights on the East Bank of Luxor, including:
Temple of Karnak
Amun, his wife Mut, and their son Khunso were formerly the three main deities honored in this cult sanctuary. 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.
We will transport you right away to check into your 5-star high-luxury Nile Cruise where you may eat lunch and unwind before being taken in the evening to another stunning tourist destination that draws visitors from all over the globe.
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: Finish Your Luxor Discovery Tour
You will enjoy your breakfast on the luxury Nile Cruise in the morning before joining your tour guide to complete your luxury tour of Luxor by seeing some of the top tourist destinations on the west bank, including:
The Kings’ Valley
The hypnotic Valley of the Kings is one of Luxor’s top tourist destinations. It contains 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 so you can get a general idea 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 standing 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.
You’ll then be driven back to your Nile Cruise, where you may have lunch, spend the remainder of the day, and stay the night.
Tour of the Edfu and Kom Ombo Temples on Day Five
You will set sail for Edfu in the early morning, and when you arrive, you will board a horse-drawn carriage with your tour guide to go to Edfu. You will be given a tour when you arrive to see:
Temple in Edfu
On the west bank of the Nile, in Edfu, you will go to one of the most fascinating temples. The inscriptions on its walls provide some of the most helpful details regarding language, myth, and religion in Egypt during the Hellenistic period. It was constructed between 237 and 57 BC under the Ptolemaic Kingdom.
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 crocodile gods Sobek and Hathor were honored at the two temples.
You will return to your cruise when your spectacular tour is done to begin sailing toward Aswan, where you will spend the night aboard your opulent Nile Cruise.
Day Six: View the Egyptian Rose of Aswan for Beauty
Among the highlights that you will see with us today are some of the top tourist attractions in the Nubian Destination of Aswan, which is a charming city for most travelers.
High Dam at Aswan
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 send it to Karnak to be set in front of the temple’s gates, but when the top of the obelisk shattered, she opted to leave it in Aswan.
Temple of Philae
On Agelika 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 driven back to your Nile Cruise where you will eat lunch and spend the night under the stars in the Nubian city.
Day 7: Explore the Magnificent Abu Simbel Temple
You will depart the Nile Cruise in the morning, after which you will meet your tour guide for one of the most magnificent excursions to Abu Simbel. 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.
