Day 1: On November 18, our trip will begin to Cairo. We will meet at the Cairo airport. We will see and photograph the old quarters of Cairo, Al Tahrir Square. We will transfer to our hotel for dinner. We will have dinner together at the hotel.
Day 2: We will have an early breakfast and transfer to the airport. We will fly to Luxor. From there, we will board our river ship that is waiting for us, settle into our cabins and start our journey along the Nile. Of course, we will get off our ship and make visits. Today we will visit the inside of 3 king tombs. We will visit the magnificent temple of Queen Hatchepsut. We will return to our ship for our lunch. After dinner, we will visit the impressive Karnak Temple, the largest temple in Egypt and the world. Afterwards, we will visit the Luxor Temple, one of the most important temples of the ancient period. We will return to our boat again for dinner. In the evenings, we will have a good time with some activities on the boat.
Day 3: Today will be an interesting journey on the Nile River. First, our ship will line up to pass through a channel, only 2 ships are allowed to pass through this channel at a time. After crossing the canal, we will continue our Nile journey and arrive in Edfu. Along the way we will photograph interesting images. During this transit, we will have accommodation on board, including breakfast, lunch and dinner. In the evening, there will be various activities on our ship again.
Day 4: We will have an early breakfast and visit the Temple of Horus in Edfu. We will use the carriages to go to the temple. This temple is dedicated to the falcon-headed god Horus in Egyptian mythology. This is the second largest and best preserved magnificent temple after Karnak Temple. After photographing the temple, we will return to our ship for lunch. After dinner, we will reach Kom Ombo on our ship and go to Sobek Temple, which we will visit on foot. We will return to our ship again for dinner.
Day 5: After breakfast, we will leave the ship to visit Abu Simbel Temple and travel by bus. Our Abu Simbel Temple trip will be extra, costing 140 USD per person. This magnificent temple built for Nefertari has defied the years with all its beauty by the Nile River. Abu Simbel was built into a giant rock in 20 years. There are 4 giant Ramses Statue at its door. After the temple visit, we will return to Aswan, and after lunch on board, we will take a different cruise on the Nile this time. We will visit an island with small non-motorized sailing boats. Then we will return to our ship and have our dinner.
Day 6: After breakfast, we will depart for Aswan Airport and fly to Cairo. When we reach Cairo, our day will be quite busy. Khan El Khalil Bazaar, Cairo Museum and of course the Giza Pyramids will be among the places we will visit. Today will be extremely exciting and enjoyable. Tutankhamun's mask was made with a truly magnificent craftsmanship. When all these visits are over, we will return to our hotel for dinner.
Day 7: After breakfast, we will go to see Alexandria today. We will examine what was done instead of the Alexandria Lighthouse, one of the 7 wonders of the world. I can say that this is a different face of Egypt. More tidy and cleaner than Cairo. Today, there is the Kayet Bay Fortress, which was built on the place of the lighthouse, which is a remnant of the Mamluks. We will visit this castle and the newly built Alexandria Library instead of the ancient library. We will end the day in Alexandria and go to the airport in the evening and make our flight to home. Even though I had been to Egypt and seen it, I was excited again when I was writing it again. You will experience the same excitement when you see it with your own eyes.
