Day 2Giza pyramids, Saqqara and Memphis (Cairo at Night)

The main destination of many Egypt travelers on their vacation are the three famous pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx. The Great Sphinx of Giza in Egypt is by far the most famous and largest sphinx. It depicts a reclining lion with a human head and was probably erected in the 4th dynasty during the reign of Chephren. It is the only remaining wonder of the world.
First you will look at the largest pyramid in the world, the Great Pyramid of Cheops. Then it goes on to the Chephren pyramid and the Mykrenios pyramid.
Afterwards we drive to a plateau, from there you have a wonderful panoramic view of the pyramids of Giza. Finally we visit the mysterious Sphinx and the valley temple of Chephren.
After visiting the Giza pyramids, continue to Saqqara. Here you can admire the step pyramid of King Djoser. This pyramid is the oldest stone structure in human history.

Day 3Egyptian Museum, Citadel with the Alabaster Mosque and Khan EL Khalili Bazar

On this day you will immerse yourself in ancient Egyptian art and visit the Egyptian Museum. This is a must for vacationers if their trip takes them to Cairo. It is the largest museum of ancient Egyptian artifacts and art. The highlight of the museum are the golden treasures from the famous tomb of Tut Ench Amun. Whose grave you were able to experience on day 3. Then it goes on to the Saladin Citadel, from where you will have an impressive and fascinating view over the metropolis of Cairo. Here you will visit the alabaster mosque of Mohamed Ali. You will learn about the five pillars of Islam and the Islamic traditions and customs in Egypt.
Then drive to the oldest market in Egypt, the Khan El Khalili Bazar. Here you will be led into the world of 1001 nights. The market houses many cafes, restaurants and of course the many colorful shops in its small and winding streets. These offer the many types of traditional handicrafts in Egypt.

You will be picked up from your hotel and taken to Cairo Airport. From here the journey continues with a domestic flight to Luxor where our tour guide will greet you. With him you drive to the port of Luxor for embarkation on your booked ship.
In the afternoon you will visit the temple complex of Karnak. This facility is one of the largest places of worship in the world. In the middle is the huge columned hall, which was built up from 134 columns.

Located on the west bank of the Nile across from Luxor, Thebes West offers a variety of attractions and ancient sites. Here you visit the Valley of the Kings with 64 rock tombs of the most famous pharaohs of Egypt. You will visit three tombs and be amazed by the highly developed culture and art from this heyday of Egypt.

Then there is a visit to the terrace temple of Hatshepsut. A work of art with a special and unusual style of Egyptian architecture. On the way back you stop at the mighty Memnon Colossi, which Pharaoh Amenophis III had built and which are known as the guardians of Thebes West.

Optional: At sunrise there is the possibility of taking a hot air balloon over Theben West. A completely different way of looking at the temples and graves, but the Nile landscape itself is also impressive at sunrise.
In the afternoon there is the possibility to take a city tour through Luxor by carriage. You get an authentic impression of Egyptian life in the market in Luxor. A market that the locals also use. You drive through different parts of the city and also along the Sphinx avenue between Karnak and Luxor temples. You have the opportunity to visit the historic hotel “Old Winter Palace” with its beautiful garden and enjoy a cup of tea at sunset. You can book that too.

Day 6Edfu Temple, Kom Ombo Temple

Now the journey continues. Today you say goodbye to the city of Luxor and drive about 100 kilometers south to Edfu. Here you will visit the Horus Temple. This temple is the best preserved temple in Egypt. It was built by the Ptolemies for the falcon god Horus. The temple is so well preserved that all elements of the ancient Egyptian architectural style can be seen.
Afterwards you continue along the beautiful landscape of the Nile to Kom Ombo. There you will visit the double temple of the crocodile god Sobek and the falcon god Haroeris. Many interesting things can be seen here, such as the Nile knife or also called the Nilometer. The oldest calendar in Egypt, the medical instruments and the mummification museum.
Then drive about an hour to Aswan.

Day 7High Dam, Philae Temple and the "Unfinished Obelisk"

Aswan is one of the most beautiful cities in Egypt. The Nile cataracts and the nature reserve underline this statement.
First you drive to the Aswan High Dam, while you cross the old dam. This was built in the British colonial times. Later the high dam was built. This high dam is a huge structure that damms the Nile into the huge Lake Nasser.

Then take a small boat to Agilika Island. The Isis Temple (Philae Temple) is located here today. This temple used to stand on Philae Island. However, due to the construction of the new dam, the temple had to be “relocated”, otherwise it would have sunk in the dammed water of Lake Nasser. So it was rebuilt on the island of Agilika.

Afterwards you will visit a granite quarry, which was already used in the times of the Pharaohs. So for many millennia it was used to make granite obelisks. Here is also the “Unfinished Obelisk” which you can admire.

Optional: In the afternoon you can enjoy the beautiful landscape of the Nile. Take the boat through the Nile Cataracts . The Nile has a total of six cataracts, two in Egypt and four in Sudan. The word cataract refers to a granite island that protrudes from the Nile and thus interrupt the river bed. Through these Nile cataracts , the Nile is divided into several arms, which becomes a colorful spectacle of nature. On one side the yellow sand mountains with the yellow sand beaches and on the other side the green grass strip with the date palms and in the middle the dark granite islands with their rapids. A unique natural spectacle. During this trip through the Nilepass Elphantine Island, an ancient Egyptian city. As you drive on, you can see the Kitchner Island, also known as the Botanical Garden. Then you can see the rock tombs of the noble and rich, the Aga Khan mausoleum. This is followed by the Coptic Simeon Monastery. At the end of the journey you can still see the famous and historic hotel “Old Cataract”. The film “Death on the Nile” was shot here. Then the boat docks at the Nubian village and we visit a Nubian family. Here you can get to know the Nubian culture and find out more about the country and its people. In the Nubian house you will experience living crocodiles that are kept as pets. Here you will drink the best mint tea in all of Egypt. After the visit we will take a short walk through the Nubian village. Then we go back to Aswan by boat. At the end of this trip you will experience a sunset on the Nile.

Day 8Abu Simbel

In the early morning you drive from Aswan to Abu Simbel. This trip takes about 3 hours by bus through the desert. The two rock temples of Abu Simbel, with their unique style, are considered the masterpieces of ancient Egypt. One of the miracles is the incidence of sunlight. Exactly twice a year, on the birthday and throne day of Ramses II, the figures of the gods in the Holy of Holies are illuminated by sunlight. The second miracle is the relocation of the two temples to a higher location, as otherwise the dammed water of Lake Nasser would have flooded both temples. This happened between 1964 and 1968 after the construction of the new dam.
Then it’s back to Aswan. Depending on the time of day, you can experience a mirage on this trip. Once in Aswan, you can relax for the rest of the day. In the evening the ship casts off and it goes back to Luxor.
