The Journey

1

Welcome to Cairo!

At once overwhelming and enchanting, Cairo is a city steeped in history yet enlivened with modernity. Start your Egyptian tryst at this timeless city as we pick you up at the airport for a private transfer to your hotel. Our representative will be waiting for you at the immigration desk and will assist you in the check-in process at the hotel. The rest of the day is free to enjoy at leisure.

Ancient Citadels, Mythical Creatures and the Great Pyramids (Cairo)

After breakfast at the hotel, step out for a guided tour of the most iconic sights of Egypt – the magnificent Giza Pyramids, the enigmatic Sphinx, the ancient ruins of Memphis and the necropolis of Sakkara. There’s nothing quite as intriguing in the world of travel than the mysterious pyramids of Giza. The Cheops Pyramid is especially interesting with its interior burial chambers open to public. Not far from the Pyramids is the Great Sphinx of Giza, which dates from the time of Chephren in 2620BC. We will also visit Memphis, the ancient capital of Egypt dating to some 5,000 years ago. Explore artefacts from many of the great rulers of Egypt, including the fallen statue of Ramses II. And visit Sakkara, one of the most exciting historical and archaeological areas in the country, where Egypt’s fascinating tryst with pyramids began. The famous step pyramid of King Zoser here was the first pyramid ever built in the country, by the famous pharaonic architect, Imhotep.

Along the Nile and a Felucca Ride (Cairo – Aswan)

After breakfast, check out from the hotel and leave for the Cairo domestic airport for your flight to Aswan in the South of Egypt. Here, we will embark on a luxurious cruise across the majestic Nile, one of the most special ways to experience the magic of Egypt. Our representative will assist you to check in (before 1100 hours) as we take off to explore history by the Nile. Visit the Temple of Philae, a mystical complex devoted to Isis, and see the rock-fill High Dam, which was built to control the flooding of the mighty Nile as civilisation grew around the river. Later, visit the Botanical Garden on a Felucca sailboat. Enjoy lunch and dinner on board, followed by an evening of entertainment.

Temples by the Nile

Today, we have an early start to the morning (latest by 0400 hours) as we set off for the ruins of Kom Ombo, a “double temple” dedicated to the crocodile God Sobek and the falcon God Haroeris. Next, see the Edfu temple, further along the river, not only the best-preserved ancient temple in Egypt but also the second largest after Karnak. We will sail later to Luxor, where we dock for the night. Enjoy lunch and dinner onboard, with an evening of entertainment.
5

West Bank and East Bank

After breakfast onboard, we set out for the West Bank, famous for the Valley of the Kings, home to many Pharaonic tombs of the New Kingdom, including those of King Tutankhamen and Ramses the Great. See the Hatshepsut Temple, amid the bay of cliffs known as Deir El-Bahri. The female pharaoh chose to build her temple in a valley sacred to the Theban Goddess of the West, on a direct axis with Karnak temple of Amun on the East Bank, which we will see later today. The Karnak temple is a small shrine dedicated to Amun, god of Thebes then and comprises three main temples, smaller enclosed temples, and several outer temples – all constructed over 1300 years, making it the largest and oldest temple compound on earth. We will also see the Temple of Luxor, which served as a setting for the rituals of the Opet festival, held to reconcile the human aspect of the ruler with his divine office. Lunch and dinner onboard with evening entertainment.
