We will start the tour with The Three Majestic Pyramids of kings Cheops, Chephren, and Myckerinus, guarded by the famous Sphinx. You’ll get to know about the founders of the pyramids and see the Valley Temple of King Chephren. Take stunning pictures and enjoy unique activities by the monument.

After that, we will take you to Sakkara Complex, where you’ll find the first trial of building a pyramid; it was by King Djoser dating back to 2800 BC under the 3rd dynasty, and it is known by “The Step Pyramid.”

The last stop will be at Memphis, the oldest capital in ancient Egypt during the Old Kingdom; there lays the biggest statue of Ramses II.

Have your breakfast on the deck, so we start exploring the west bank’s top attractions.

The Valley of the kings: This is the gateway to the afterlife. As the pharaohs believed in the afterlife, they prepared their tombs for the next world. In the Valley, you will find the tombs of the most famous kings like Ramses II, Ramses I, Seti I. You will have the chance to visit 3 of them from inside. “King Tut Ankh Amen is excluded.”

The Temple of Hatshepsut, the Queen’s most impressive and greatest achievement, took 15 years to build. It was designed by her architect Senmout in a unique site surrounded by a mountain.

Two Colossi of Memnon: they are the only remains of Amenophis III funeral temple. The two massive statues were guarding the temple that disappeared throughout the ages.

Continue driving to Kom Ombo; you’ll visit Kom Ombo temple, a unique double designed temple built during the Roman dynasty. The temple is dedicated to two gods; Haroeris and Sobek.

Abu Simbel Temple rescued by UNESCO from the inundation caused by Lake Nasser and relocated to a safe place. There is a famous phenomenon that happens there twice a year. The temple has a straight vertical axe that, on the day of King’s Birthday and the day of his coronation, the sun shines directly on the statue of Ramses II. Next to this great temple, there is another smaller one, built by Ramses II but to his wife, Nefertari.

Enjoy your breakfast at the hotel, then Check-out. Make a couple of visits to Aswan before you leave.

You’ll visit the High Dam, built between 1960 and 1971, to rescue Egypt from the floods, producing behind it Lake Nasser, one of the largest artificial lakes ever.
