Itinerary

The first day of your 5-day Nile cruise from El Gouna will begin in the early morning when you'll be picked up at your hotel in Port Ghalib by our representative for your transfer to Luxor where you will accompany by a professional tour guide for a wonderful journey to the Luxor east bank tour visiting: Karnak Temple and the Luxor Temple.

Your first stop will be the Karnak Temple Complex, which was built over a period of more than 1,000 years by pharaohs of ancient Egypt: Amenhotep III, Ramses II, and Merenptah, and it served as a religious center for centuries. The temple is huge, covering over two square kilometers of land. It's also home to many important artifacts—including the famous Obelisk of Domitian—and it features a massive courtyard that's often used as a performance space for musicians and dancers. You'll have plenty of time to explore this amazing place on your own before heading off to see the other temples of Luxor.

Afterward, head to check-in on the Nile Cruise for lunch and relaxation onboard before joining your private guide once again for a great evening tour.

Your second stop will be one of the most beautiful temples in all of Egypt: Luxor Temple! Built during the New Kingdom period (1550-1070 BC), this temple sits along the Nile River and features some truly stunning architecture—in particular its Hypostyle Hall, which resembles an enormous tree with leaves made out of stone columns! The Temple is dedicated to Amun-Ra, who was worshipped as a god of creation and fertility. The temple consists of several structures that were used for different purposes throughout history; these include several pylons (gates), courts (open spaces) with columns, halls (rooms), and sanctuaries (places where gods could be worshiped).

Luxor temple was built by two great kings who were king Amenhotep III who built the inner part of the temple, then it was completed by king Ramses II who built the outer part of the temple including the triple shrine of Hatshpsut.

Finally, we will take you back to your cruise, where you can have dinner and overnight stay.

The second day of your Nile cruise from El Gouna will be a busy one as we will be exploring the west bank of Luxor. First, you'll take a tour of the valley of the kings and Hatshepsut temple before heading over to see the colossi of Memnon. You'll have time for shopping before boarding your boat to sail to Esna.

After breakfast onboard your Nile Cruise, start your day with a trip to the Valley of the Kings, one of the most famous archaeological sites in Egypt, and it contains some of the most beautiful and fascinating tombs in all of Egypt. This is a burial site that was used by several pharaohs from the New Kingdom period. The tombs were cut into the limestone cliffs in this area and are very well preserved.  You'll see tombs that are beautifully decorated with hieroglyphics and sculptures of gods. And you will have time to explore these tombs on your own. 

Next, visit Hatshepsut Temple, which was built during the time of Queen Hatshepsut (1473-1458 BC) who ruled alongside her husband Thutmose II (1481-1425). It's one of only two female pharaohs in Egyptian history, so it's especially significant for women! This temple sits on top of an artificial mountain and has some of the finest carvings in Egypt. The architecture is really interesting—you can see how it was built using columns and pillars to create a beautiful effect inside.

The tour concludes with a visit to The Colossi of Memnon: two giant statues that have been standing since ancient times which were built by Amenhotep III (1386-1349 BCE) and were moved from their original location where they were originally part of his funerary temple. These statues are 32 meters tall and are one of the most iconic images in Egypt today!

At the end of the day, you'll head over to Esna for a sail on Lake Nasser.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast onboard your Nile cruise, you will continue sailing until you'll see the temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo. These are two of the most important temples in Egypt, and they have been around since at least the time of Ramesses II (1279-1213 B.C.).

Start with the Temple of Horus in Edfu, which was built in 237 BC and is dedicated to Horus, the falcon-headed god who was both king of gods and lord of the sky.  this temple was built by Ptolemy VII between 237 and 57 BCE, and it's considered one of the best-preserved temples in Egypt. It's located on the west bank of the Nile River, an hour away from Aswan.  It's also famous for its reliefs that depict scenes from the Book of Gates (a book in the Egyptian Book of the Dead), which is why it's often called "the Temple of Millions of Years." 

After visiting this temple, you will proceed to Kom Ombo temple, another ancient Egyptian temple that was carved out of a mountain during the Ptolemaic period. The temple itself is dedicated to two gods: Horus and Sobek—both of whom are important figures in Ancient Egyptian mythology.

In the end, return back to your Nile cruise where you will continue sailing until you reach Aswan city.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

 

The day will start with breakfast on the cruise. After breakfast, we will proceed to Abu Simbel temple. The temple was built by Ramesses II during the New Kingdom. It was dedicated to his beloved wife Nefertari and their son, Ramses. The temple consists of four main temples, which are connected by a long hall known as "The Hypostyle Hall", which is decorated with scenes depicting the Battle of Kadesh, Ramesses II's victory over the Hittites in 1274 B.C., and other events from Egyptian history. The walls were also decorated with scenes from various religions including Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. There are also many statues inside these temples that are carved out of rock and depict ancient gods such as Isis and Osiris among others.

There is also a museum there that has information about Egypt's history and culture, as well as an area where you can see some artifacts from when they were building the temple.

After your tour at Abu Simbel Temples, we'll make our way back down south toward Aswan.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Today is the last day of your Nile cruise. In the morning, we will have breakfast onboard the cruise and check out to visit the High Dam, which is a massive structure built to regulate and control the flow of water from Lake Nasser. In recent years, it's become a popular tourist attraction for its impressive architecture and for providing a stunning view of Lake Nasser.

Next up, we'll go to Philae Temple—a beautiful structure with pharaohs' statues carved into its walls. This temple was once submerged in water but has since been excavated and restored as an archaeological site.

Finally, we'll visit an unfinished obelisk that was commissioned by Pharaoh Tuthmosis III in 1450 BC. The obelisk was never completed due to a lack of resources during construction; however, some parts of it were reconstructed in 1964 by UNESCO archaeologists who hope to finish what Tuthmosis III started.

You'll end your day at the port of Ghalib, where your Nile cruise will come to an end after 5 days of exploring Egypt's most famous river.

It can happen when only a few seats are available and many customers book the offer at the same time. But remember, you can always ask to join a group tour if available, this option will guarantee the reduction of the tour pricing as we mostly deal with private guided tours to assure the highest quality of service.
The proportionately higher prices for people traveling alone (Solo Travelers) mostly result from the higher overnight-room costs, as normally almost all hotel rooms are structured for 2 people who can each assume half of the overnight costs. This also applies to flat-rate travel. The hotels would not benefit from offering a reduction to solo travelers when the rooms could be occupied by 2 persons at a normal price. During the low season, some hotels lower the prices as a reason for the decreased demand since they have a large number of beds when the demand is not too high.
Prices vary throughout the year depending on the offer and request. During the summer and especially during the holidays that are considered high seasons like the Christma and New Year holidays, Easter holidays, and special events such as sports championship or destinations that are very popular and recent. Therefore tour operators can demand higher prices according to the increasing cost of accommodation and/ or implementation.
Most trips can also be booked for a shorter or longer period. However, if, for example, your departure time is changed, trips lasting 5 or 10 days will not be possible, that’s why we always request the flight details before proceeding with the booking, just to make sure the last suggested itinerary is fit for both the traveler and the operator.
From the date of booking until 46 days before your arrival date, 10% of the entire tour price will be charged. Between 45 and 31 days before your arrival date, 20% of the entire tour price will be charged. Between 30 and 15 days before your arrival date, 50% of the entire tour price will be charged. Between 14 and 1 days before your arrival date, 100% of the entire tour price will be charged.
