DAY 2:

DISCOVERING CAIRO: Giza Pyramids, Sphinx and Egyptian Museum

After breakfast at the hotel, we will set off to discover the Pyramids of Giza where we will see one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World: the Great Cheops pyramid (2690 BC). We will continue to explore the rest of the Giza Plateau, including seeing the pyramid of Khafre, son of Khufu, the second largest pyramid at the Giza site; and the pyramid of Menkaure the smallest of the three; all proudly guarded by the famous Sphinx. After the lunch break we will explore the Egyptian Museum, the oldest archaeological museum in the Middle East which houses the largest collection of Pharaonic antiquities in the world and where Tutankhamun rests. Free dinner. This night we enjoy some nightlife in the capital of Egypt. Overnight in Cairo / Giza.

DAY 3:

THE WONDERS OF ASWAN: Philae Temple, High Dam & Unfinished Obelisk

After breakfast, we will be greeted by our representative, and take a domestic flight to Aswan. Upon arrival in Aswan, we will head to our hotel. Our adventure will then begin and with the local guide we will begin a fabulous day tour to discover the Philae Temple, reachable in 30 minutes by boat along the Nile River. The small island of Philae, just 450 meters long and less than 150 meters wide, has captured the imagination of countless travelers to Egypt since ancient times. The Temple was famous for its beauty and was known as the "Pearl of Egypt". There was a sense of mystery. Philae was located south of Aswan and, therefore, belonged strictly to Nubia. Isis was worshiped by both Egyptians and Nubians. Fantastic stories were told of her magical powers. We will then continue to the High Dam, an engineering masterpiece, built in 1960 to protect Egypt from the annual floods of the Nile. We will then continue with a visit to the Unfinished Obelisk which shows the techniques used by the ancient Egyptians to cut obelisks. The unfinished obelisk is a rare opportunity to reflect on this complex process and the difficulty of shaping the large stone blocks that were part of most monuments in Egypt. We will arrive at the end of the day in the wonderful Nubian village, with a crazy view of the Nile. We will disembark on Sohail Island and visit a traditional Nubian house to learn about the history and culture of the Nubian people over a welcome glass of tea. Time to take a walk and explore the island freely, strolling through the brightly colored villages and chatting with the locals. The day will end with a local dinner in this beautiful village. Overnight in Aswan.

DAY 4:


Today is a special day because we will visit the very famous Abu Simbel temple. Wake up at 3:30 in the morning to take our Breakfast Box and leave the hotel. We will reach Abu Simbel by modern air-conditioned coach, a journey of approximately 3 and a half hours. The two Temples of Abu Simbel, with their unique style, are considered the masterpieces of ancient Egypt. They reflect the glory and greatness of the new Kingdom. The Egyptian government and UNESCO have decided to work together to save these temples from the flood. The Temple of Ramsses II was dedicated to the four universal gods Ptah, Re-Her-Akhtey, Amun Re and to Ramsses II himself. The Temple of Queen Nefertari is also called the Temple of Hathor who was the wife of the Sun God therefore in a symbolic way, the two Temples, that of Ramesses II and that of Nefertari, bring together Ramesses II, Nefertari, Hathor and the Sun God together as one single thing. Once the visit is finished we will return to Aswan to board our cruise ship.

DAY 5:

NILE CRUISE: Edfu. Kom Ombo, Temple of Horus & Esna

After our breakfast on board, all ready to explore Edfu where we will stop to visit her temple. Located on the western bank of the Nile, it is the place where the Temple of Horus stands, which with its 2000 years is among the youngest and best preserved works in the country. Covered and protected by sand for centuries before its rediscovery, it has come to us in excellent condition, perfectly maintaining the falcon-shaped statues, the animal symbol of Horus, and the internal walls decorated with hieroglyphs that narrate legends linked to the famous divinity. After the temple visit we will enjoy a good local lunch. We continue sailing towards Kom Ombo. Arriving at this famous temple is an incredible experience, thanks to the perspective that is created as you get closer. We will return aboard our ship to enjoy the view of the river directly from the deck and relax in the pool. Dinner and evening on board our beautiful cruise.

DAY 6:

NILE CRUISE: Valley of the Kings and Queens, Karnak Temple and Luxor Temple

We enjoy breakfast on the cruise and set off to discover the West Bank of Luxor. We begin with the famous Valley of the Kings, a royal burial place for the pharaohs of the 18th, 19th and 20th dynasties (the New Kingdom of Egypt). Famous kings of this period include Tutankhamun, Ramesses II, Tuthmosis III, and Seti I, as well as powerful nobles, wives, and children of the pharaohs. We continue with the Temple of Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon. After visiting the temple we will stop to enjoy our local lunch. In the afternoon it is time to explore the eastern bank (East Bank) of Luxor, with the Temple of Karnak, which dominates the entire landscape of Thebes and was born from the splendor of the Pharaohs of the New Kingdom, and the Temple of Luxor, ancient Thebes , with a large quantity of environments and bas-reliefs still intact which make the city an open-air museum, among the largest in the world. Dinner and evening on board our beautiful cruise.

DAY 7:


After breakfast, check out at 08:00 when we will leave our Nile cruise for a new adventure. We will leave the hinterland and the Nile River to reach the Red Sea, whose beaches and sun are there waiting for us. Next stop? Hurghada! A city that has transformed from a small fishing village to one of the largest tourist destinations along the Red Sea coast. After the 4 hours of travel we will reach the coasts of the Red Sea where we will spend the last days of this incredible journey. It's time for some well-deserved relaxation and to tan under the sun! Free time to lie on the beach or by the pool, or for activities of your choice. The city of Hurghada transforms in the evening, so a tour of its trendy clubs is a must. Overnight in Hurghada.

DAY 8:


Good morning Red Sea! After breakfast, a day of total relaxation or to explore the seabed. We can opt for an extra boat trip, sailing on the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea where, during the trip, we will have the opportunity to snorkel and admire the rich marine life and colorful corals. We will relax in Orange Bay, and in the afternoon we will visit the center of Hurghada where we will admire the majestic Al Mina mosque. Last evening to end this magical journey in style: Hurghada by night. Overnight in Hurghada.

DAY 9:


Unfortunately our journey in this magical country ends here. For those who still have time available, free time in the city or relaxation on the beach! WARNING, SPOILER ALERT: this will not be a goodbye... just see you until the next adventure together!
