02 Night at Cairo + 03 Nights Nile Cruise between Luxor and Aswan +02 nights at sleeper train
Welcome to Cairo! Your tour begins when you are greeted by our representative who will assist you through immigration and customs formalities. After you have collected your luggage he will then take you, in our deluxe vehicle, to your Cairo hotel.
Breakfast at the hotel is followed by a full day tour. In the morning you will be driven to see the Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx: the most famous monuments of not only ancient Egypt but of the entire ancient world! These massive stone structures were built around 4,500 years ago on a rocky desert plateau close to the Nile. In the afternoon you will be taken to the Egyptian Museum: gaze at the wonders of King Tutankhamen, including his golden death mask; stare upon the mummies of some of Egypt's ancient pharaohs (optional); lose yourself in the many rooms and galleries, where thousands of artifacts are awaiting your visit. At the end of this exciting day, you will be driven to your hotel to check-out and then driven to Ramses railway station where you will board the night sleeper service to Aswan, which departs at 2025. Dinner is served once Cairo has disappeared behind you.
At 08:15 AM you will have arrived at Aswan station. Here you will be met and assisted by our representative who will transfer you to your cruise boat: your floating hotel for your next 4 days. After lunch, you will be driven to see the High Dam, the worlds largest rock filled dam, and then a short sail to the Temple of Philae moved to the island of Agilika after the waters of Lake Nasser flooded its original location. It is then back to Aswan to rejoin your cruise and as the Nile laps gently underneath you, dinner will be served.
A new day and your first breakfast on board as the boat sails majestically towards Kom Ombo, where you will visit the Temple of Kom Ombo, dedicated to the gods Horus and Sobek. After the visit, you will be taken back to the boat for your lunch while it sails onward to Edfu, home of the best-preserved temple in Egypt: the Temple of Horus. After your visit to this superb temple, you will be taken back to the boat in plenty of time before it departs Edfu and sets sail for Esna. Once you reach Esna you can watch as it sails through the Esna locks. Once through the locks, the boat continues on its course towards Luxor, which it will reach after you have had dinner.
An early breakfast and then it is time to visit the West Bank of Luxor: the tombs of the New Kingdom Pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings; the tombs of princes in the Valley of the Queens; the magnificent temple of Queen Hatshepsut at Deir El-Bahri finishing with the immense Colossi of Memnon. After lunch, which you will have on board, you will visit the magnificent temple Karnak and Luxor Temples. Once your visit to these ancient Theban Temples is completed you return to the boat where your last dinner, upon this floating hotel, will be served.
You will have your final breakfast on the boat before you have to check out, but you will have the rest of the day to do as you please. You will be driven to Luxor railway station to meet your train at 21:30 and once more dinner is served as a famous city disappears behind you.
An early wake-up call for breakfast and at 06:45 the train arrives at Ramses station where you will be met by our representative and transferred to your hotel for check-in at noon. The rest of the day is to do as you please.
Your final day starts with breakfast at the hotel followed by check-out. You will then be transferred to the airport for your final departure.
