Nile Cruise from Luxor to Aswan

Day 1: Luxor

We'll pick you up at the Luxor airport at your arrival time, although we can also pick you up at the train station, at your hotel, or any other place. Then we'll take you to the cruise boat in which we'll sail the Nile, where your full room and board begins.

Day 2: Luxor - Esna - Edfu

Having eaten breakfast we'll disembark to see the majestic city of Luxor, or Thebes to give it its ancient name. Here we'll visit two of the most spectacular temples in Egypt, the Luxor Temple and the Karnak Temple, separated from each other by the Avenue of Sphynxes, a three kilometre long road lined with the aforementioned sphynxes.

Having eaten we'll head to the giant necropolises near to Luxor. We'll visit the Valley of the Kings (seeing the inside of 3 tombs), the Temple of Hatsepsut (dedicated to the only woman to rule Egypt for an extended period) and the Colossi of Memnon (two giant stone statues which represent the Pharoah Amenhotep III).

Then upon our return to the boat we'll sail in the direction of Edfu, where we'll dock to eat and spend the night.

Day 3: Edfu – Kom Ombo – Aswan

Once we've eaten and with batteries recharged, we'll visit the Edfu temple, dedicated to the god Horus. The cruise then continues towards Kom Ombo, where we'll visit its incredible temple, dedicated to the gods Sobek and Hareoris.

After the days tour we'll head up the nile to Aswan, where we'll spend the night.

Day 4: Aswan

Having eaten we'll disembark to visit one of the most beautiful temples in the country, the Philae Temple, dedicated to the Goddess Isis. And after visiting Philae, anyone who wants to can visit the Abu Simbel temples, something highly recommended.  

Then in the evening we'll ride in a traditional felucca boat down the Nile, taking in its flora and fauna, volcanic islands and its natural beauty, later spending the night again in Aswan.

Day 5: Aswan

Having eaten breakfast and checked out you'll have free time, and whenever you like we'll take you to the Aswan airport, train station, or whichever point in the city you would like. If your transfer is in the evening you can also have lunch on board.
