Day 1: Arrival in Luxor and embarkation

  • Met and assistance in Luxor’s airport/ station / hotel.
  • Start tour of: Temple of Karnak, the main center of worshiping the Theban Triad with god Amun, no site in Egypt at all makes a more overwhelming and lasting impression than this collection of Obelisks, Columns, Walls, Statues, and Decorated blocks. Everything is on a gigantic scale: the site covers over 2 sq km. Karnak was the most important place of worship in Egypt during the New Kingdom. It was called Ipet-Sut, meaning ‘The Most Esteemed of Places’; Karnak is its Arabic name meaning ‘fortified settlement. The complex of Karnak includes three main enclosures: AMUN TEMPLE ENCLOSURE – MAIN AXIS, MUT TEMPLE ENCLOSURE and MONTU TEMPLE ENCLOSURE.
  • Our next destination will be Temple of Luxor; it was built essentially by two kings (Amenhotop III and Ramses II, also several rulers contributed to its relief decorations and inscriptions, added minor structures or alterations. The temple was built for the Opet celebrations, when the statues of Amun, Mut and Khonsu were annually reunited during the inundation season with that of Amun of Opet. A mosque was built in one of the interior courts for the local sheikh (holy man) Abu al-Haggag. In front of the temple is the beginning of the avenue of sphinxes that ran all the way to the temples at Karnak 3km to the north, which is now being entirely excavated.
  • Lunch on board of Nile Cruise vessel.
  • Dinner and overnight on board of the Cruise. The boat moors on the East Bank of the Nile.

    Day 2: Luxor - Esna - Edfu

  • Breakfast on board.
  • Meet your private tour guide on the lobby and start early tour of the West Bank.
  • We visit: Valley of the Kings, two peaks with vast valley includes 62 tombs once called the Great Necropolis of Millions of Years of Pharaoh, or the Place of Truth. We will have the chance to enter three Royal Tombs and see the magnificent decorations still resisting the time.
  • We proceed to the Mortuary Temple of Hatchepsut; the temple is a partly rock-cut and partly free standing terraced structure. The temple was vandalized over the centuries: Tuthmosis III removed his stepmother’s name whenever he could, Akhenaton removed all references to Amun, and the early Christians turned it into a monastery, Deir al-Bahri (Monastery of the North), and defaced the pagan reliefs. The temple consists of: great court, Chapel of Anubis, Punt Colonnade, Hathor Chapel.
  • Visiting Colossi of Memnon, two statues of Amenhotep III are all that remain of a massive compound this Pharaoh built to house his mortuary temple. The magnificent colossi, each cut from a single block of stone and weighing 1000 tones, were already a great tourist attraction during Graeco-Roman times, when the statues were attributed to Memnon, the legendary African king who was slain by Achilles during the Trojan War.
  • Back to the boat and lunch on board.
  • Start sailing to Esna City (54 km) south Luxor. Cross Esna’s Lock. Continue sailing to Edfu.
  • Dinner and overnight on board of the Cruise. The boat moors on the East Bank of Edfu.

    Day 3: Edfu - Kom Ombo
     
     
  • Breakfast on board.
  • Visit Temple of Horus Situated between Luxor and Aswan, the Temple of Horus at Edfu dates from 237 BC, a time when Egypt was ruled by the successors of Alexander the Great. These rulers copied earlier temples, perfectly preserving the architectural traditions of their Pharaonic predecessors as can be seen in this vast temple.
     
  • This morning we enter the city of Kom Ombo where we tour the Ptolemaic Temple of Sobek and Haeroris, Elder Horus god of the falcons. (Temple of Kom Ombo) that has an unusual symmetrically twinned architecture in which all rooms and doors are mirrored on the other side of the building. Once inside, you’ll see that there are two sanctuaries in the middle of the temple, each a mirror image of the other.
  • Lunch on board of Nile Cruise vessel.
  • Dinner and overnight on board of the Cruise. The boat moors on the East Bank of the Nile. .

    Day 4: Aswan
     

  • Breakfast on board.
  • Visit: Unfinished Obelisk, One of the strangest sites in Egypt is a huge obelisk still attached to the bedrock in an ancient quarry in the hills south of Aswan that supplied the ancient Egyptians with red granite for their temples and statues. Three sides of the shaft were completed before a flaw was discovered in the stone and the obelisk was abandoned. Had it been completed, it would have weighed an astonishing 1.8 million kg (1,197 tons) and stood 41 m (134 ft) high
  • Temple of Philae, this Graeco-Roman temple dedicated to the cult of Isis. It is situated on its own picturesque island in the middle of the Nile and the only way to visit it is by motor launch, which makes for a supremely dramatic approach. It lies between the Aswan and High Dams, a 15-minute drive south of town.
  • The largest of the islands at Aswan, Elephantine Island is also the site of the town’s oldest settlement. In ancient times it was the cult centre of the ram headed god of the Nile flood, Khnum. Among the ruins at the southern end are those of the Temple of Khnum, built by Nectanebo in the 4th century BC. Regular ferries connect the island with the Cornice.
  • High Dam, Built between 1960 and 1971, the enormous High Dam is 3,830 m (12,562 ft) across, 111 m (364 ft) high and 980 m (3,214 ft) wide at its base. At the eastern end of the dam there is a visitors’ pavilion detailing the construction of the dam and at the western end there is a lotus-shaped tower, built to commemorate the Soviet Union’s assistance in the project that also has an observation deck.
