Itinerary

Early in the morning, a representative of our company will pick you up from your hotel in Port Ghalib and drive you to Luxor, where you will be accompanied by a knowledgeable tour guide for a wonderful trip to the East Bank of Luxor visiting: Karnak Temple and Luxor Temple. This will be the first day of your five-day Nile cruise from Port Ghalib.

The Karnak temple complex will be your first stop. It was built over a period of more than a thousand years by Pharaohs Amenhotep III, Ramses II, and Merenptah, and served as a religious center for many years. With an area of more than two square kilometers, the temple is huge. It also has a large courtyard that is frequently used as a stage for performers and dancers, as well as many important relics, including the famous obelisk of Domitian. Before leaving to visit the other temples of Luxor, you will have plenty of time to explore this magnificent place independently.

Then, check-in for the Nile cruise, have lunch on site, and meet your private guide for the next fantastic tour.

The Luxor Temple, one of the most beautiful temples in Egypt, will be your next trip. This temple, located along the Nile, was built during the New Kingdom period. It has truly amazing architecture, especially its hypostyle hall, which looks like a huge leafy tree made of stone columns. Amen-Ra, who was worshipped as a god of creation and fertility, is the subject of the temple. The temple is composed of many buildings that have had various functions throughout history.

Finally, we will take you back to your ship for dinner and an overnight stay.

Meals: Lunch, Dinner

The second day of your Nile cruise from Port Ghalib will be a busy one as we will be exploring the west bank of Luxor. 

After breakfast on board your Nile cruise, begin your day with a visit to the Valley of the Kings, one of Egypt's most famous ancient sites, home to some of the country's most amazing and intriguing tombs. A number of New Kingdom pharaohs used this burial site as their final resting place. The tombs in this area were carved into the limestone cliffs and are in excellent condition. You will encounter tombs exquisitely decorated with carvings of gods and hieroglyphs. In addition, you will have time to investigate these tombs independently.

Then visit the Temple of Hatshepsut, which was built when Queen Hatshepsut and her husband Thutmose II were in power. It is particularly noteworthy for women because she is one of only two female pharaohs in Egyptian history! Some of the most beautiful sculptures in Egypt can be found in this temple, which is perched atop a man-made mountain. The architecture is incredibly intriguing; you can see how it was built with pillars and columns to produce a beautiful interior impression.

The trip ends with a stop at the Colossi of Memnon, a pair of huge statues that have stood since antiquity and were built by Amenhotep III. They were originally located in his funerary temple but were later relocated. One of the most recognizable images of Egypt today, these statues stand 32 meters tall.

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

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

After breakfast, you will continue on your Nile cruise until you see the temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo. These are two of the most important temples in Egypt and date back at least to the reign of Ramses II.

First among these should be the Temple of Horus at Edfu, built in 237 B.C. and honoring Horus, the falcon-headed deity who was king of the gods and lord of heaven. This temple, built by Ptolemy VII, is one of the best preserved in Egypt. It is located one hour's drive from Aswan, on the western bank of the Nile. It is often called "the temple of millions of years" because of its famous reliefs depicting events from the Volume of Gates, a book from the Egyptian Book of the Dead.

After visiting this temple, you will continue to Kom Ombo Temple, another ancient Egyptian temple that was carved out of a mountain in the Ptolemaic era. The temple itself honors Horus and Sobek, two deities who play an important role 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 and 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. The High Dam, a large structure created to regulate and control the flow of water in Lake Nasser, will be our first stop after breakfast on the cruise. It has gained popularity as a tourist destination in recent years because of its spectacular architecture and its vantage point overlooking Lake Nasser.

Next, we will see the Temple of Philae, an amazing building with figures of pharaohs carved on its walls. Once submerged in water, this temple has since been unearthed and preserved as an archaeological site.

Before leaving, we will visit an incomplete obelisk that Pharaoh Tuthmosis III commissioned in 1450 BC. Due to a lack of resources during construction, the obelisk was never completed; however, part of it was rebuilt in 1964 by UNESCO archaeologists in order to complete the work that Tuthmosis III had begun.

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.

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.
