Start your journey with a dinner cruise with your tour guide in the evening, then unwind while watching a vibrant belly dancing performance with a folklore band that includes the iconic Tannoura spin in keeping with Egypt’s whirling dervishes’ tradition. Afterward, head back to your hotel for the night.
Day Two: Visit the Egyptian Museum and the Giza Pyramids
Check out of the hotel after breakfast and join your private Egyptologist tour guide to explore the most well-known Cairo tourist spots, including:
Giza Pyramids Complex
The complex also comprises six smaller pyramids, the enormous sphinx, and the Valley Temple in addition to the three major pyramids, which belong to Cheops, Chefren, and Mykerinus. The structure is 2400 years old, from the 4th dynasty.
The Great Pyramid
The oldest and biggest of the three pyramids on the Giza Plateau, and the only one to have survived among the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, is the Great Pyramid, which belonged to King Khufu. The Great Pyramid is 147 meters high, was erected over 20 years, and 2,300,000 stones were utilized in its construction.
The Great Sphinx
The Great Sphinx, which is 73 meters long, 19 meters broad, and 20 meters tall, is the biggest statue on the whole globe. The monument has the earliest known sculpture in it.
The Valley Temple
The only one still standing on the Giza plateau is an ancient Egyptian mummification temple made of granite.
Proceed to a neighborhood eatery in Cairo for lunch. Then, we’ll go over to see:
The Egyptian Museum
A unique collection of artwork from the last 5000 years is on display at the Egyptian Museum. The exhibition features more than 250,000 authentic objects from ancient Egypt, including a display of the gold, jewels, and treasures that King Tutankhamun collected and kept in his tomb for more than 3,500 years.
We finally drop you off at the Cairo airport so you can travel to Luxor and settle into a 5-star hotel for the night.
Day Three: Visit the Luxor Sights
Enjoy breakfast at the hotel before meeting your Egyptologist tour guide to continue your holiday and explore the most well-known Luxor tourist sites, beginning by:
The Kings’ Valley
King Ramses II and King Tutankhamen are among the monarchs of Egypt’s 18th to 20th dynasties whose tombs may be seen there. The tombs were fully furnished with everything a monarch may want in the afterlife in terms of material things. The majority of the tomb decorations are still in good condition.
Temple of Hatshepsut
One of the most exquisite and well-preserved of all the temples in Ancient Egypt is the Hatshepsut Temple. The temple was constructed on three levels, connected by two large ramps in the middle.
Only two enormous stone sculptures of King Amenhotep III survive from a funerary temple that was once completely constructed. The sculptures are constructed from quartzite sandstone stones that were originally found in Cairo and transported 700 km to Luxor.
Following a boat ride on the Nile River, your tour will take you to an island for lunch before visiting:
Temple of Karnak
The Karnak temple is the most spectacular landmark in Egypt. It is the biggest complex of temples ever constructed by humans. It stands for the culmination of the work of countless pharaohs and ancient architects. Three major temples make up the Temple of Karnak, which is spread over 247 acres of land.
After that, return to the Luxor hotel for the night.
Day Four: Visit the temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo
Have breakfast in the morning, check out of the hotel, and then join your private Egyptologist tour guide for a transfer in a private air-conditioned vehicle to the following locations:
Temple in Edfu
Honoring the god Horus. The Edfu Temple is the most well-preserved Greco-Roman structure in all of Egypt, and a “Play” depicting Horus’ victory over the malevolent deity Seth is painted on its walls.
Temple of Kom Ombo
Temple in Kom Ombo with a view of the Nile. This temple is split into two separate temples, each having its entrance, hypostyle Hall, and sanctuaries.
After eating lunch, take your air-conditioned vehicle to Aswan where you will check into a five-star hotel and spend the night.
Day 5: Visit Abu Simbel’s Two Temples
Morning breakfast boxes followed by a private air-conditioned vehicle journey to Abu Simbel where you will meet your private tour guide to learn:
Abu Simbel Temples
The two temples of Abu Simbel are regarded as the pinnacles of ancient Egypt because of their distinctive architecture. Both of the Temples were erected during the time of King Ramses II about 1200 B.C., and both are rock-cut constructions. King Ramses II is honored in one temple, while his loving wife Queen Nefertari is honored in another. Both temples are beautifully decorated with sculptures and artwork. It is an iconic location with hand-carved pillars, murals, carvings, sculptures, and much more.
Return to your hotel in Aswan to eat lunch and spend the night.
Day Six: Visit the Attractions in Aswan
After having breakfast at the hotel, you check out and go on a tour of Aswan’s tourist sights with an Egyptologist.
The High Dam
It was erected at Aswan across the Nile between 1960 and 1970, and its construction had a big impact on Egypt’s economy and culture.
The Unfinished Obelisk
the biggest obelisk from antiquity. It was acquired by the Lateran Palace in Rome when Queen Hatshepsut (1508–1458 BC) commissioned it to accompany the Karnak Obelisk (which was originally at Karnak).
Temple of Philae
Temple at Philae to the goddess Isis of Love and Beauty. As part of the UNESCO Nubia Campaign initiative, the temple complex was disassembled and moved to the adjacent island of Agilkia Island to safeguard it and other sites before the Aswan High Dam was finished in 1970.
After eating your lunch, go back to Aswan to catch your flight to Cairo, where you may check into a 5-star hotel for the night.
