Your pick-up time will be at about 4.30am (Exact details will be confirmed locally). You will be transferred to Sharm el-Sheikh airport, then you will do fly to Luxor.

Upon your arrival in Luxor you will find our English speaking Egyptologist waiting for you outside the arrival hall to escort you the whole cruise.

Firstly you will drive to The West Bank of Luxor where you are going to see many things as following:

The Colossi of Memmon are two huge statues. They are the only remaining standing statues fronting the mortuary temple of the Imonhotep III.

The Temple of El Deir - Elbahri (the Temple of the Queen Hatshepsut) is one of the most beautiful temples we have in Egypt. It had been cut into the mountain and was built by the queen Hatshepsut (the strong woman who ruled Egypt in the 15th century B.C.). It was used as her mortuary temple.

The Valley of the Kings (when Luxor was the capital of Egypt, the ancient kings chose this valley to be their burial place hidden among the hills) contains more than 62 tombs cut by the kings from the 18th, 19th & 20th dynasties. The Valley of the Kings got its fame from the discovery the tomb of the golden king Tut Ankh Amon.

Finally you are going to take an experience for the life style of the local people on the West Bank, and you will also have the chance to know some of their handcrafts.

As soon as you will finish your visit on The West Bank, you will drive to The East Bank where you will make your check in the 5* Nile Cruise (floating hotel), take your lunch and have a break to be ready for the second part of the tour.

On The East Bank you will visit The Complex of Karnak Temples which is the second biggest religious complex in all over the world!!!! It has the largest hypostyle hall (columned hall built by the king Ramses II) in the world with 134 columns. It was built by different generations of the pharaohs. In it you will see the tallest obelisk (Hatshepsut's obelisk) in Egypt. Then you will visit Luxor Temple.

Overnight will be on board in Luxor.

The next day the cruise will sail in the morning towards Esna, where you will enjoy the beautiful view of the Egyptian countryside and will see Esna Lock to pass through the lock and sail again towards Edfu. In Edfu you will get off to visit Edfu Temple which is considered the second preserved temple in Egypt and was dedicated for the falcon headed Horus. What will make this visit be very exciting that you will go to the temple by a horse carriage.

After that the cruise will sail again to Kom Ombo to stay overnight there and on the following day you will Kom Ombo Temple with its secrets about the ancient Egyptian civilization. Then you go onboard to sail towards Aswan. In Aswan you will visit The High Dam of Aswan which was built on the River Nile in 1971 and is considered one of huge dams. The High Dam is considered one of the main sources for generating electricity in Egypt.

Then you will go to The Unfinished Obelisk which is the largest known ancient obelisk. Archaeologists claim the pharaoh known as Hatshepsut sanctioned its construction. It is nearly one third larger than any ancient Egyptian obelisk ever erected. If finished it would have measured around 42 m (approximately 137 feet) and would have weighed nearly 1,200 tons (1,066,621 kilograms). Archeologists speculate that it was intended to complement the so-called Lateran Obelisk which was originally at Karnak and is now outside the Lateran Palace in Rome. (Thutmose III obelisk in Lateran, Rome: 105 ft) Other archaeologists suggest that the pharaoh Hatshepsut ordered it to be built to celebrate her sixteenth year in power.

After that you will visit Temple of Philae. Now visitors can take a boat to drop them off to Agilika Island, where both the magnificent temples of Isis, and Hathor are major attractions on the Island.

The last night onboard will be in Aswan and on the next day afternoon you will transferred to Luxor airport to catch your flight to Sharm El Sheikh. Upon your arrival in Sharm you will find our English speaking rep. waiting for you to give you a lift to your hotel in Sharm.
