Departure from the boat in a private vehicle and accompanied by a local English-speaking guide, to the other bank of the Nile to visit the famous Necropolis of Thebes, one of the most important symbols of this ancient civilization. In this complex you can find a true archaeological treasure that constitutes one of the main wonders of Egypt: the Valley of the Kings that houses the pharaonic tombs of the most famous pharaohs (you can visit up to 3 tombs) and also includes the Tomb of the Pharaoh Seti I, the most spectacular of the Valley of the Kings, its passages and chambers go deeper than any other tomb in the bowels of the Theban mountain and its polychrome bas-reliefs exhibit an extraordinary quality. It is certainly a magnificent and charming tomb whose discovery is due to one of the most intrepid men among the pioneers of Egyptology, Giovani Batista Belzoni.

The visit will continue with the funerary temple of Ramses III, currently known as the Medinat Habu temple, and with a panoramic visit of the Temple of Queen Hashepsut. Later, you will admire the remains of the Temple of Amenophis III, an enclosure that will welcome you with the Colossi of Memnon, two gigantic twin seated stone statues that still survive through the centuries.

Optional Tour to Abu Simbel (consult supplement)

The temples of Abu Simbel are located 280 km - 3 hours approx by bus. These impressive temples were on the verge of disappearing due to the construction of the Aswan Dam, but thanks to the worldwide appeal of UNESCO it was possible to rescue these temples by moving them piece by piece to the current site (200 meters further back and 60 meters higher of the original site) and that has allowed it to last until today. The main landmark of the complex is the Temple of Ramses II, whose main facade features 4 astonishing 20-meter-high statues and represents the majesty of Ancient Egypt. If you walk inside, you will find an extensive gallery and several rooms to honor the gods of Egyptian culture. In Abu Simbel you will also find the temple dedicated to Nafertari, the favorite wife of this pharaoh. On the main façade there are 6 statues of equal size that represent Ramses II on 4 occasions and Nafertari herself on 2, but always with different attributes. When we finish the visit at mid-morning we begin our return to the ship to arrive at lunch time.

For those who do not want to join the optional excursion, free morning to walk around Aswan or rest and enjoy the ship's facilities

In the afternoon, we will go on an included excursion in a felucca, typical Egyptian sailboats, to enjoy the view of the botanical garden, elephantine island, and the mausoleum of the chief of the Ismailis Agha Khan. At the end of this tour, there is the possibility of optionally extending this visit to the Nubian Village (consult supplement). In the Nubian Village, you will be able to enjoy the varied life of the Nubians and see their artisan products. Return to the motor ship and dinner on board.
