Day 2Explore Giza ancient treasures

Today, roam the Giza Plateau, site of the pyramids of Mycerinus and Chephren as well as the Great Pyramid, built in the Fourth Dynasty (approximately 2690 BC). Revel in the opportunity to enter the interior of one of these legendary structures, and marvel at the massive stones used to construct them.

Day 3Into Ancient city of Luxor

Board your plane for a morning flight across the desert to Luxor, site of the ancient city of Thebes. Begin your tour with a visit to the Temple of Karnak, where generations of pharaohs wished to record their names. Walk through the Great Hypostyle Hall, strolling among its expertly aligned columns, which soar 80 feet high.

then, step aboard your cruise ship. Take some time to get settled in your stateroom and explore the ship. Enjoy lunch on board before disembarking to explore the temple of Luxor, which was once joined to the Temples of Karnak by a 1.25-mile-long Avenue of Sphinx, a portion of which marks the entrance to the temple. The temple dates to approximately 1400 BC and is dedicated to the rejuvenation of kingship rather than the Pharaohs, cult gods or deified versions of the king in death.

Relax this evening on board the comfort of your Nile cruise and enjoy the evening of entertainment, including local Egyptian music.

Meals: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.

 

Day 4Luxor Temples & Tombs

Disembark after your breakfast to visit the west bank of Luxor; Discover valley of the kings. Buried under the arid hills here are over 60 tombs of pharaohs, many richly decorated with reliefs and paintings. Explore three tombs, where the pharaohs were secretly interred for all eternity, and where discoveries are still being made. Continue to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut – a colonnaded building set against high cliffs that create a spectacular natural amphitheater.  Stop and  admire the majestical aura and magnitude of the two Colossi of Memnon.

We continue our tour this afternoon with a visit the Temple of Philae, a beautiful island complex dedicated to Isis and reclaimed from the rising waters of Lake Nasser, which we reach by a scenic boat ride.
