On the way back from Abu Simbel, the boat will go to Kom Ombo and Edfu. The temple of Kom Ombo, dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek, will be visited at Kom Ombo. After this visit, you will set sail for Edfu. The temple of Horus, which is dedicated to Horus, the falcon-headed god, will be shown to you. This pharaonic temple, still relatively new, is well preserved and therefore quite magnificent. In the evening, dinner will be served on board and you will spend the night there.

After breakfast on board, depart the ship at 8:00 am to begin your day of sightseeing on the West Bank of Luxor. On the West Bank of Luxor, you will first be transported to the Thebes Necropolis, the Valley of the Kings. For visitors to Luxor, this ancient necropolis is a must-see. It consists of tombs buried in the mountain of Thebes. Three tombs of different dynasties are visited. Your tour guide will be able to advise you and recommend which tombs to see. After visiting the tombs, you will be taken to the temple of Queen Hatshepsut. Then you will be transported to see the Colossi of Memnon, the two largest ancient statues in Egypt.

On the east bank of Luxor, you will visit the temples of Karnak and Luxor to complete your cruise on the Nile. All other pharaonic structures are no match for Karnak, which is simply one of the most beautiful ancient monuments in Egypt.
