You can visit the Hypostyle Hall, which is composed of 134 huge columns with reliefs representing the wars of King Thutmose III against Syria and Nubia as well as scenes of daily life.

Then you will board a boat to see Luxor Temple, which Amenhotep III built in honor of the gods Amun-Re, Mut, and Khonsu. There are two main temples: one honors Amen-Ra, the other the goddesses Mut-Thekhu. In addition to these two temples, there are other structures in the complex, including the Colonnade Hall and the small temple of Hathor, which can be seen on the north side of Amenhotep III.

You will then return to your boat and spend the night there.

Your second day on the River Tosca Nile Cruise has arrived, and you have a full day of activities planned.

After breakfast, you will take a morning excursion to Luxor west bank tour to see the temple of Queen Hatshepsut, an ancient Egyptian structure built during the 18th Dynasty by Queen Hatshepsut, who was the regent of Thutmose III. The temple was built to praise and worship Amun, who had helped Hatshepsut become pharaoh by giving her a heavenly father figure in the form of Amun himself.

Later in the day, you will visit the Valley of the Kings to see some of the most famous tombs, including those of Rameses III and Tutankhamen.

By visiting the Valley of the kinds on the western bank of Thebes, you will be amazed by knowing more secrets and hidden things about the great kings who established the ancient Egyptian kingdom throughout ancient history.

You will head to Esna to continue your adventure after lunch at The Nile restaurant. One night on the boat.

You start your day by going to the Temple of Horus in Edfu. Here you will find some of the finest examples of Egyptian art and architecture. Horus, the falcon-headed deity of heaven and royalty, was the subject of the temple that Pharaoh Ptolemy II Philadelphus (285-246 BC) erected. Then you will go to Kom Ombo, where you will discover the importance of this place in relation to the attempt to unify Egypt by King Ramses II (1279-1213 BC).

Finally, you'll head back down the Nile and take a moonlight cruise to Aswan to end your wonderful adventure!

You will have the opportunity to learn the history of the dam and how it was built. Standing at the top of the dam, take a picture of the longest river in the world flowing underneath.

Next, you'll see the enormous Temple of Philae, which was carved out of granite rock. You'll also see the impressive Temple of Isis, one of only two remaining temples on the island of Philae, and the Unfinished Obelisk, which Ramses II started but never finished before he died.

Then enjoy your free time as you please. Dinner aboard the Tosca Nile Cruise in the evening before spending the night in Aswan.
