We will board MS Emilio Nile Cruise, a luxury Nile cruise from Luxor to Aswan, after meeting our agent at the airport or Luxor train station. Start the itinerary exploring the tours of Luxor's east bank as you begin your first day trip in Egypt. The first day on board will be spent visiting the temples of Luxor and Karnak.
We've heard that taking a boat is the best way to see these places, so that's what we'll do. We'll start at the huge Karnak temple, where you can visit the historic ruins and learn about the area's past. You'll also have time to visit the neighborhood, which offers a great view of Thebes, and the Karnak Open Air Museum.
Next, we will go to Luxor Temple, one of the most famous structures in Egypt. Although this temple was built during the New Kingdom period (1539-1075 BC), it was a place of worship for a very long time before that. There are many temples in the area to visit on this day, some of which are dedicated to Egyptian deities such as Isis or Horus.
You can walk through the professional way that connects between Karnak and Luxor temples where the sacred barks of god Amen and his triad were carried by the priests through this way from Karnak temple to visit Luxor temple where the actual festival of Opet occurred there.
You will then return to your cruise and overnight there.
