CAIRO / ASWAN / ABU SIMBEL

Enjoy a relaxing morning with a tasty breakfast featuring the finest local produce. A guide will then accompany you to Cairo airport, where you will soon board a plane for Aswan. From the airport in Aswan, you will be driven to your cruise ship in an air-conditioned bus. Once you are settled at the hotel, you will depart for the legendary temples of Abu Simbel, approximately 3 hours away by bus.

Many years ago, this magnificent monument was almost lost in unprecedented Nile floods. However, thanks to the efforts of UNESCO, it was moved piece by piece to a nearby location and endures to this day. The main reference point of the complex is the temple of Ramses II, the main façade of which features 4 incredible statues, each 20 meters high, breathtaking in all the majesty of ancient Egypt. Savor the temple both by day and by night, in an impressive sound and light show.

Upon walking inland, you will find an extensive gallery and several rooms honoring the many gods of Egypt. You can also find the temple dedicated to Nefertari, wife of the Pharaoh. On the main facade are 6 statues, four of them depicting Ramses II and two depicting Nefertari.

In the afternoon, you will have lots of time to rest and recharge. You may also use your time to continue exploring the historical wealth of these monuments.

As the sun sets, you will have the opportunity to witness the sound and light show, detailing the history of Ramses II, Nefertari, and the extensive work carried out by UNESCO in the process of moving Abu Simbel from its original location in Aswan.

You will then return to your cruise ship in Aswan to enjoy a tasty dinner and much-deserved rest.

ASWAN

Enjoy breakfast aboard the boat just before setting off for the small island of Philae. Ptolemy II built the temple on this island in honor of the goddess Isis. It also holds the unfinished obelisk, which was claimed as the world's largest obelisk until it, unfortunately, cracked.

The contrast between the ancient past and present will be striking as you arrive at your next destination, the celebrated Aswan Dam, a gigantic piece of engineering work that was launched by the British Empire during its occupation of the country, and concluded by the Egyptians in the middle of the last century.

After your evening meal, you will embark on a felucca ride. This is a rich local experience, giving you the opportunity to closely admire the surrounding landscape from the perspective of the legendary Nile. The felucca will pass by Elephantine Island, one of the oldest trading centers in the ivory trade, and Kitchener's Island, famous for its beautiful botanical gardens. To conclude, you will enjoy a wonderful panoramic view of the Agha Khan Mausoleum. Just a brief glance at this breathtaking monument explains why Sir Sultan Muhammad Shah chose it to be his eternal resting place.

In the evening, you will enjoy a meal onboard the cruise boat before retiring for the day.

Travelers will then proceed to the Valley of the Artisans, a tribute to those who built the tombs of the Pharaohs in the Valley of the Kings. Next, you will visit the funerary temple of Ramses III, know as the Medinet Habu Temple, which is notable for its use of polychromy and is an exemplary piece of architecture from the New Kingdom.

After a short break for lunch, you will be surprised with an amazing panoramic view of the complex of Deir el-Bahri, which famously features the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut. We will move across this complex to admire the majesty of ancient Egypt from the Temple of Amenhotep III. Here you will observe the Colossi of Memnon, two immense twin statues that remain breathtaking centuries after their creation. Both depict Amenhotep III with his eyes looking east, towards the Nile and sunrise. Around him are two smaller figures symbolizing his wife and his mother.

In the afternoon you will be transferred to the airport to leave for Cairo. In Cairo, you will be greeted by a representative who will take you to your hotel where you can enjoy dinner before retiring for the night.

Teeming with history, Alexandria is Egypt’s second-largest city, also known as the "Pearl of the Mediterranean".

Despite having been destroyed in an earthquake, the ruins of the lighthouse remain intact.

Next, you will visit the catacombs of Kom el Shogafa, an important archaeological site of the first century. This necropolis is made up of three underground levels containing a series of tombs, statues, archeological objects as well as 300 mummies and various Greco-Roman motifs.

You will then enjoy lunch at a local restaurant serving delicious fresh fish. Once you’ve recharged sufficiently, you will proceed to visit the temple ruins of the Serapeum and Pompey's Pillar. Many historians agree that this important Roman general was buried here after dying in battle. The tour continues as we proceed to the Royal Gardens of Montazah: an imposing palace located on top of a hill. Here you will have a spectacular view of the Mediterranean Sea. After this exciting day, you will be transferred to your hotel for dinner and rest.
