After a 12:00 check-in we enjoy lunch on board, before visiting the High Dam. This significant structure was completed in 1970 and not only provides a constant supply of renewable energy for the whole country but, even more importantly, ended the cycle of drought and floods that plagued the Nile region.

We then take a motorboat ride to the Temple of Philae. This impressive structure, constructed to honor the goddess of Isis, stands on an island in the reservoir of the Aswan Low Dam. We then head to the enormity that is the Unfinished Obelisk. This fascinating monolithic monument lies in a bed of granite and was commissioned by Queen Hatshepsut over 3,500 years ago. Had it been finished it would’ve been around a third larger than any other previously erected obelisk.

Breakfast is served on board before we set sail for the double temple of Kom Ombo. This unusual structure is dedicated to not one, but two gods: the falcon god, Haroeis, and the crocodile god, Sobek. This dual building is perfectly symmetrical, with matching rooms, courts, halls, and sanctuaries for each god.

Heading towards Edfu, enjoying lunch along the way, our next sensory fix is more than satisfied by a visit to the impressive Ptolemaic Temple of Horus. This mighty structure was completed somewhere between 230 to 57 BC. It’s one of the largest temples in all of Egypt and, most importantly, is incredibly preserved. This is thanks to the wonders of the desert sand, which filled and covered the structure following the banning of the pagan cult that worshipped there. Today it’s possible to visit once again, thanks to excavation works that began back in the mid-19th century.

We then sail through the modern village of Esna, heading for our last port of call for today, the ancient city of Luxor, enjoying afternoon tea as we go. After all the incredible sights already seen, you might think that this metropolis can offer no more—but think again. Not only is Luxor home to the world’s largest open-air museum, but it’s one of the most archeologically rich places in the world.

After we dock there’s time to relax before dinner on board and a fun Galabia Party. This traditional Egyptian costume includes a long dress (worn by both men and women) and a beautiful headpiece adorned with much bling! It’s a lively evening enjoyed by all. Be sure to get a few hours’ sleep ready for an exciting day tomorrow.

After a hearty breakfast we visit the ethereal West Bank and the Valley of the Kings & Queens. Many superlatives have been used to describe these archaic tombs, but nothing can prepare you for experiencing it for yourself. Discover more about the journey of the rich and powerful as they passed from this life to the next, and, of course, you get the chance to visit the tomb of perhaps the most famous king of all, Tutankhamun.

We then head to the Temple of Hatshepsut, stopping at the Colossi of Memnon along the way. These two enormous, 3,400-year-old statues will prime you for the truly outstanding sights that lie ahead, the first of which is the temple of one of the first female Pharaohs—Hatshepsut. This striking architectural masterpiece with its dramatic sheer cliff backdrop is a fitting tribute for the ‘queen who ruled as a king’.

We head back to our boat for lunch before crossing to the East Bank to visit the wonders of Karnak and Luxor Temples. These awe-inspiring constructions are linked by the famous Avenue of Sphinxes. At 3km long you’ll have to keep your eyes peeled for the cartouche of Cleopatra, bestowed when she visited the temples with Marc Antony—or, more easily, ask your Egypt Deluxe guide to point it out for you.

After such a day of culture you can relax on board our cruise boat and dine to the entertainment of a traditional Egyptian Belly Dancer show.
