Cruise Itinerary

Day One: Board the Cruise and Visit the Attractions in Aswan

Early in the morning, we’ll pick you up from your hotel to begin your tour, taking you to see some of Aswan’s most well-known tourist attractions, starting with:

High Dam of Aswan

At Aswan, a bridge over the Nile was constructed. Egypt’s economy and culture have greatly benefited from the construction of the Aswan High Dam, which took place between 1960 and 1970.

The Unfinished Obelisk

The largest ancient obelisk that is known. It may have been ordered by Queen Hatshepsut (1508 1458 BC) to accompany the Lateran Obelisk, which was initially at Karnak before being transported to the Lateran Palace in Rome.

Temple of Philae

Isis of Love and Beauty is the goddess of the Philae Temple. As part of the UNESCO Nubia Campaign initiative, the temple complex was deconstructed and transported to neighboring Agilkia Island, safeguarding it and other monuments before the Aswan High Dam was completed in 1970.

Following that, we’ll take you to the 5* Nile Cruise where you may enjoy lunch and the remainder of the day. Meals {L.D}

Day Two: Tour the Kom Ombo Temple and take a boat to Esna

After breakfast, set sail for Kom Ombo, where you will meet your Egyptologist by contemporary A/C vehicle to visit:

Temple of Kom Ombo

A temple with a view of the Nile is Kom Ombo. It will be interesting to see this historical location because this temple is separated into two temples with two entrances, two hypostyle halls, and two sanctuaries.

After breakfast, you’ll meet your own Egyptologist tour guide to explore the ancient Egyptian sites along Luxor’s east bank. Stops include:

Karnak Temple

The Karnak temple is Egypt’s most spectacular structure. It is the biggest temple complex ever constructed by humans and marks the culmination of the labors of numerous pharaohs and generations of ancient builders. On 247 acres of land, the Temple of Karnak consists of three main temples, smaller enclosed temples, and other peripheral temples.

After lunch, return to your Nile cruise to unwind. We will take you up in the evening to enjoy:

Luxor Temple by Night

The most significant event, the festival of Opet, was centered at the Luxor Temple. The temple served as a location for the festival’s rites and was mostly constructed by Amenhotep III and Rameses II. The purpose of the event was to reconcile the ruler’s human side with his celestial role.

Returning to your ship to spend the night. Meals {B.L.D}

Visit Luxor West Bank Attractions on Day Five.

Enjoy your breakfast while you cruise, then get ready to resume your itinerary for your 7-night Nile cruise with a visit to the West Bank of Luxor.

The Kings’ Valley

It is home to tombs for Ramses II and Tutankhamen. It is the ultimate resting place of Egypt’s kings from the 18th to the 20th dynasty. The tombs were well-stocked with everything a monarch may require in the afterlife. The majority of the interior décor of the tombs has been beautifully conserved.

Temple of Hatshepsut

of the most exquisite and well-preserved of all the Egyptian temples. The temple was constructed on three levels, with two large ramps connecting the floors in the center.

Memnon’s Colossi

The only remnants of a complete funerary temple are two huge stone statues of King Amenhotep III. Blocks of quartzite sandstone that were once in Cairo were transported 700 kilometers to create the statues.

After lunch, return to the ship. Luxor, spend the night. Meals {B.L.D}

Day Six: Visit Edfu Temple and return by boat to Aswan

Enjoy your breakfast as you sail to Edfu in the morning, then meet your tour guide to explore the temple of the ancient Egyptian god Horus:

Day 7: Visit the Temple of Abu Simbel

Temples of Abu Simbel

These Temples were built in 1244 B.C. to commemorate King Ramses the Great’s victory at the Battle of Kadesh, Abu Simbel’s two temples were cut out of a sandstone cliff. The temple is divided into two halves; one was built for the monarch, while the other was made as a memorial to his adored wife Queen Nefertari as a representation of his enduring love.
