The Great Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx

The number one activity in Cairo is by far the Great Pyramids of Giza and the Great Sphinx. Dated almost 5000 years ago, these monuments and their great conservation state are one of the greatest things you can experience with your naked eye. Located in the Giza Complex on the west side of the Nile River banks, the Great Pyramids and the Great Sphinx are Cairo’s best-kept treasures.

It has many tombs. It consists of the great Giza Pyramids (Khufu, Khafre, and Mankaure), which are considered to be one of the seven wonders of the world, and the Khufu Pyramid is considered to be the grandest in the complex. This complex also contains the amazing Sphinx and the Valley Temple.

The Great Pyramid

It's an astonishing engineering accomplishment, as it's the greatest pyramid that has ever been built. It was built by King Khufu. It contains about 2300000 blocks. These white Tura limestone blocks give the pyramid a smooth surface.

The Great Sphinx

It is the oldest known monumental sculpture in the world, and tourists come from around the world to witness the beauty of its shape (as it is ahead of a man's head) and the body of a human, which has many spiritual and mythical meanings.

Lunch in one of the best restaurants in Cairo

Inside is the greatest collection of Ancient Egyptian archeological history in the world. The Egyptian Museum in Cairo houses over 120,000 artifacts, including the contents of Tutankhamun’s tomb

and most of the mummies that have been discovered since the 19th century. The museum’s exhibits span from the beginning of the Old Kingdom of Ancient Egypt (approximately 2700 BC) through the Greco-Roman period. The building consists of two floors. On the ground floor, you can follow the history of Egypt from the Old Kingdom up through the Greco-Roman period by turning left at the entrance and looping around

(1.5 km by 0.8 km. and was a place of pilgrimage for nearly 2,000 years,  dedicated to the Theban triad of Amun, Mut, and Khonsu. The Hypostyle Hall, one of the most interesting things we will visit about 54,000 square feet with 134 columns—is still the largest room of any religious building in the world. After finishing the tour in Karnak, we will drive to the Temple of Luxor

The temple was built by Amenhotep III (1390-52 BC) 18th Dynasty and Ramesses II (1279–13 BC), 19th Dynasty. It was covered by sand until the 1880s but after restoring the temple, the Pylon measured 24 meters high and 65 meters wide, The scene on the pylon Represents the glory of  Ramesses at the battle of Kadesh. Also, two massive seated statues of Rameses II guard the huge gateway, which is flanked by four standing statues of the king.

In front of the temple, thousands of sphinx of human-headed and lion bodies, about ( 3 km, made it between the complex of Karnak and the temple of Luxor. This avenue was built for the ” Opet festival” when Amun and Mut visited the temple of Karnak in a symbolic re-enactment of their marriage. At Luxor temple, Amun has magically transformed into Min, the god of fertility.

You'll be picked up by a driver from your hotel and driven to the launch site, where you'll receive a brief safety orientation before floating upward.

Valley of the Kings

valley of the kings

In 1979 UNESCO designated the Valley of the Kings a part of the World The heritage site of ancient Thebes, includes Luxor, the Valley of the Queens, and the complex of Karnak. The site of royal burials since around 2100 BC,  the pharaohs of the New Kingdom (1550–1069 BC) chose this isolated valley to make their tombs.

One of the reasons they chose this valley on the west bank of Luxor is ” the pyramid-shaped mountain," in the center of the mountain on the west bank, so they will not waste time or spend money building a pyramid. The Valley of the Kings has 64 tombs—just 24 royal tombs.

Hatshepsut temple 

best 2-day tour to Luxor from Hurghada

 

Hatshepsut The Woman Who Was Pharaoh, was the daughter of Thutmosis I. She ruled Egypt for about 23 years during the 18th Dynasty (approximately 1490–1469 B.C.). She built a very beautiful temple on the west bank of Luxor with limestone and dedicated it to the god Amoun-Ra. The temple has three floors, with the third floor carved on the mountain as a holly of the hollies of Amoun-Ra. Then we will stop to visit the colossal Memnon.

Colossal of Memnon

hot_air_balloon_luxor_Egypt

Two massive statues of quartzite sandstone represent king Amenhotep III, who ruled  Egypt during the 18th Dynasty. The statues are high at about 15 m. The Colossi was at the entrance to Amenhotep’s memorial temple, which was destroyed by an earthquake in ancient times

after you finish your day tour in Luxor's west bank, we will drive back to your cruise to have your lunch, and enjoy the sail to to Edfu city 

Day 5: Edfu and Kom Ombo Temples 

Edfu temple

Edfu_temple_Aswan_Egypt

After breakfast on board the Nile Cruise, we will stop to visit the Temple of Horus at Edfu. The Temple of Horus at Edfu is widely considered to be the most impressive of all of the Nile-side temples along the journey between Luxor and Aswan. It is a required stop by all of the cruise ships that make the trip,

also stopping at Esna and Kom Ombo. Like at Esna, the temple at Edfu is a late construction. It was built during the Greco-Roman Period, but the builders painstakingly preserved the form of Egypt’s true pharaohs. As a result, a visit to Edfu allows you to see what all of the other ruined temples around Egypt might have looked like had they been built 2,000 years later.

Then, sailing to Kom Ombo to visit the Temple of Sobek, the crocodile god,

Kom Ombo temple

kom_ombo_Aswan_Egypt

The setting of this Temple of Sobek, the crocodile god, makes an approach by water the far superior way to visit this site. The temple is perched atop a picturesque bluff alongside the river and while there are no longer any crocodiles in the river or in the sacred lake inside the temple complex, this riverside temple is still worthy of a visit.

Like the other two sites between Luxor and Aswan, Kom Ombo dates from the Ptolemaic Dynasty and it was only completed under Roman rule. The temple has a dual dedication to Sobek, and Horus, and the plan of the temple reflects this dual purpose.

after continuing to sail to Aswan.

enjoy your night on the Nile cruise

Day 6:  Aswan Tour

After breakfast, we will visit the High Dam of Aswan, then the unfinished obelisk of Hatshepsut, finally, we will go visit the beautiful Temple of Philae, dedicated to the goddess Isis.

Philae temple

philae temple

The dazzling Philae temple of the renowned mother goddess Isis The “Myth of Osiris” is depicted in the enormous storybook Isis, which was crafted from heavenly stone and endured the test of time. It was moved to Agilkia Island between the 1960s and 1970s as part of the UNESCO Nubia Campaign project.

King Ptolemy II erected it about 280 BC. It was built in honor of the goddess Isis, the chief deity of the island.

then we drive to Aswan High Dam

Aswan high dam
Aswan high dam

When construction began on the High Dam in 1960, it was the most heralded part of President Gamal Abdel Nasser’s effort to develop Egypt for all Egyptians. While the dam is certainly not the largest in the world, it is nonetheless an impressive engineering feat, over 360 feet tall and 12,500 feet across. The dam was completed in 1971, and the huge reservoir behind it, named for President Nasser, finished filling in 1979.

after we finish the day tour in Aswan, we will go back to the cruise

Day 7: Aswan - Abu Simbel ( optional )

Abu simple temples (optional tour )

4 Day tours Cairo and Aswan

After breakfast on board, you have a free day in Aswan or go to visit Abu Simbel  Temples, south of Aswan along Lake Nasser’s shore, which are the most famous in all of Egypt after the Giza Pyramids. Built by the greatest of the pharaohs, Ramesses II, which made it also known as the Temple of Ramses II or Ramesses II,

these huge rock-cut temples marked the southern boundary of the Egyptian Empire, with Nubia at the peak of its power during the New Kingdom. They were meant to convey the power of Egypt’s rulers to anyone who laid eyes upon them. The four statues guarding the doorway to the larger of these temples are the largest sculptures that survive from the ancient Pharaonic era.
