Itinerary
Day 1: Cairo
You will be met by a representative prior to passing through immigration. Soak up the atmosphere of Cairo as you are transferred to your Pyramids area hotel, where you have an included upgrade to a Pyramids view room.

Day 2: Cairo
A day to remember! Visit the ancient capital of Memphis and the enduring monuments of Sakkara, prototypes for Ancient Egypt’s most enduring architectural legacy - the Pyramids. Explore the sand strewn temples and tombs before travelling to the incomparable Pyramids of Giza and Sphinx. The largest and oldest pyramid was built by Pharaoh Khufu over 3,800 years ago. (B)

Day 3: Cairo - Luxor
Fly to Luxor and embark on your cruise along the life-giving Nile. After lunch begin exploring one of the world’s greatest open air museums - Thebes. Visit the magnificent Luxor Temple, follow the Avenue of the Sphinx to the Temple complex of Karnak. This gigantic site was added to by approximately 30 different Pharaohs, which goes some way to explaining its size and grandeur. (B,L,D)

Day 4: Luxor – Esna – Edfu
Cross the Nile to the West Bank. Today is full of highlights including the Necropolis of Thebes and the Valley of the Kings, home to the tombs of the Theban Ruler’s including Tutankhamun. Visit the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut and see the famed Colossi of Memnon facing the Nile. This afternoon sail to Esna and cross the lock. (B,L,D)

Day 5: Edfu – Kom Ombo – Aswan
Today visit Edfu where remains from the Old Kingdom can be viewed, as well as the Temple of Horus – one of the holiest of the Egyptian pantheon of gods. Sail to Kom Ombo and visit Kom Ombo Temple, which was shared by the two Gods, Sobek (with the head of a crocodile) and Horus (who has the head of a falcon), was built in the Ptolemaic period between 237 and 57 BCE. See the beautiful preserved murals and bas relief whose inscriptions provide important information on language, myth and religion during the Greco-Roman period in ancient Egypt. Later sail to Aswan. (B,L,D)

Day 6: Aswan
Visit the Aswan Dams at the end of Lake Nasser and the beautifully restored Temple of Philae. Dedicated to the goddess Isis (the mother of Horus) an international effort relocated the entire temple complex to save it from being submerged by the creation of Lake Nasser. Later sail by felucca around the lush islands of Aswan. (B,L,D)

Day 7: Aswan – Cairo
Disembark from your cruise, fly back to the capital for a transfer to your city hotel. Conveniently located in the centre of Cairo, you can spend the remainder of the day at leisure while you soak up the local culture and atmosphere. Optional ½ day or overnight visit to Abu Simbel (Supplement applies). (B)
