Check out: Aswan
Duration: 5 Days 4 Nights
Karnak Temple: Our trained Egyptologist Guide will greet you at your Luxor hotel, train station, or airport to bring you to the magnificent Karnak Temples, which were devoted to the God Amun and his wife Mut. Historians believe that the first International Peace Treaty was signed in the Karnak Temples. The Egyptian version of this Peace Treaty was interestingly preserved on a wall at Karnak’s Temple of Amun.
Luxor Temple: Then go to the magnificent Luxor Temple, which was begun by Amunhotep III in the 18th Dynasty B.C. and finished by Ramesses II in the 19th Dynasty B.C. Ruler Ramses II was the most renowned king of the 19th Dynasty, who governed Egypt for many years. It was devoted to the Theban triad, which included the powerful deity Amun-Ra, his wife Mut, and their son Khonsu. Also, see the Ramses II Obelisk in front of the 1st Pylon. Following your visit, you will be transported to your Nile Cruise for check-in.
Valley of the Kings: After breakfast on board, your guide will be waiting to take you to the West Bank, where the famed Valley of the Kings is located. Explore the tombs of King Tutankhamun, Ramsess V1, King Tutmosis, and Amenhotep II, as well as the tombs of many more kings, in the Valley of the Kings. So come along with me as we unravel the mystery and riches of the Royal Tombs.
Temple of Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahari: We now proceed to the magnificent Queen Hatchepsut Temple, also known as El Deir El Bahari. Queen Hatchepsut was the first female Pharaoh to rule Egypt, as well as the first to establish trade channels.
Colossi of Memnon: The Colossi of Memnon, which face the Nile, are next. The Colossi are Amenhotep III’s twin sculptures. A huge earthquake supposedly fractured the northern colossus, and the lower half of the statue was said to sing following the breach, always within 1 or 2 hours after Sunrise. Returning to your cruise, which will arrive at Edfu.
Edfu Temple: Your Guide will take you to Horus Temple once you have had your breakfast on board. Edfu Temple is an ancient Egyptian temple that contains key episodes and inscriptions from the Sacred Drama concerning Horus and Seth’s struggle.
Kom Ombo Temple: Sail to the temple of Kom Ombo. The two Gods Sobek and Horus shared this Temple. Sobek, commonly known as the Crocodile, is the Nile’s God, as well as the God of the Army and Fertility. Horus is the God of the Sky and Kingship. Return to your Cruise and cruise to Aswan after your visits are over.
Aswan High Dam: After breakfast on board, our Egyptologist guide will greet you and take you to the renowned High Dam, which regulates Egypt’s water supply. Surprisingly, the dam has three years’ worth of Nile water stockpiled.
The Unfinished Obelisk: Now we’ll look at the one-of-a-kind Unfinished Obelisk. The Obelisk weighs 1,168 tonnes and would have weighed 1,200 tonnes if it had been completed. Many of the casing stones for the two pyramids at Giza came from this quarry near Aswan, which is incredible.
Philae Temple of Goddess Isis: Continue on to the magnificent Philae Temple, which was erected for the Goddess Isis, who represents Health, Marriage, and Wisdom, by the ancient Egyptians. Return to your cruise ship.
