It is believed to be one of the best-preserved temples of ancient Egypt, with many of its original decorations intact.

Continue to visit the Karnak Temple, which is one of the largest ancient religious complexes (covering over 200 acres) in the world. It contains an assortment of temples, chapels, pylons, avenues, and other buildings. The centerpieces are two massive sanctuaries: one dedicated to the god Amon-Ra (the other dedicated to his wife Mut) and one dedicated to the goddess Amunet (who was worshipped as a consort of Amon in Thebes).

The Karnak temple was enclosed by an enclosure wall to imitate the primeval ocean where the god Amen appeared and created the world and everything for life. This temple was dedicated to worshiping the god Amen and his triad which consists of Amen, Mut, and their child god Khonso.

In the end, you will return back to the cruise and overnight on board.

In the early morning, you can enjoy a Hot Air Balloon ride in Luxor (optional).

Today is the day we visit the West Bank of Luxor tours. We'll start with a visit to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, which is also known as Deir el-Bahri. It was built by King Thutmose III's daughter, and it has been named after her since its construction in the 15th century BCE. The temple was constructed to celebrate and honor Amun, who had favored Hatshepsut and assisted her in becoming pharaoh, by providing her with a divine father figure: Amun himself.

Next up will be a visit to the Valley of the Kings, which is a necropolis that  It contains numerous tombs built for the rulers and nobility of the New Kingdom of Egypt (1550–1069 BC), like those belonging to Tutankhamun, Ramses II, and Seti I.

After that, we'll head over to colossi Memnon, two giant stone statues of Amenhotep III that were moved to their current location in the 19th century CE.

Sailing to Edfu via Esna and overnight on board.

Today you will sail to reach Edfu, where you can see the Temple of Horus, one of the best-preserved monuments in Egypt. Enjoy a guided tour of the temple and take in its well-preserved reliefs depicting scenes from the life of Horus. From here, you will continue sailing to Kom Ombo, where you can explore another Temple dedicated to Horus that was built by Ptolemy VII Philometor (145–117 BC). Then, return to your cruise ship for a sumptuous lunch.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

 

After a relaxing night of sleep, we awoke to the sound of birds and a cool breeze coming from the Nile. It was time to get up and explore!
We started off with a visit to the High Dam as part of our Aswan day tours. The High Dam is actually two dams in one: one for water intake, and one for power generation. The water intake dam allows water from Lake Nasser to be pumped into the turbines for electricity production, which is then sold back to Egypt.

After that, we went to the Temple of Philae —one of only two existing temples still standing on the island of Philae—and Unfinished Obelisk which was started by Ramses II but never completed due to his death.

Dinner is served on board your Egyptian Nile cruise after an afternoon felucca ride on the Nile around Kitchener Island.
