The Pyramids of Giza
The 3 famous pyramids of Giza are the last surviving wonders of the ancient world. They were about 2600 BC. Built on a large limestone plateau.

The Pyramid of Cheops is the oldest and largest of the three pyramids and is therefore also known as the “Great Pyramid”. It is the highest pyramid in the world, 147 m high and was built as a tomb for the Egyptian king Cheops.

First, we will admire the largest pyramid in the world, the Great Pyramid of Cheops. This is followed by a visit to the pyramid of Chephren and the Mykrenios pyramid.

Then we drive to a plateau, from where you have a beautiful panoramic view of the three pyramids of Giza.

The Sphinx
The sphinx has the body of a lion and the head of a man and is located in front of the pyramid of Chephren with a length of about 73 m and a height of about 20 m.

After visiting the pyramids, fortify yourself with an oriental lunch, then drive to:

The Egyptian Museum
The Egyptian Museum in Cairo is the world’s largest museum of ancient Egyptian treasures and houses a unique collection of finds from 5,000 years of Egyptian history. Particularly impressive are the famous golden treasures of Tut-Ankh-Amun. It would be open to visitors in 1902.

After your program in Cairo you fly to Aswan, then transfer to your Nile cruise ship

Day 3Aswan

After breakfast on the boat you will visit in Aswan:

Philae Temple
The Philae or Isis Temple stood on Philae Island south of Aswan and after the construction of the high dam, the temple was under water for several months of the year. Therefore, the temple was moved from 1977 to 1980 on the neighboring island of Agilika. In 553 AD, the temple served as a church, so much of the relief in the temple was destroyed.

The high dam
The construction of the high dam was initiated by President Nasser and lasted from 1960 to 1971, creating one of the largest reservoirs in the world, 500 km long and 32 km wide, at the widest point. The dam is more than 3800 meters long and 111 meters high, at the sole 980 meters and at the crown about 40 meters wide.

Day 4Kom Ombo and Edfu

Tomorrow morning the ship leaves Aswan for Kom Ombo. After breakfast on the boat you will visit:

The Kom Ombo Temple
It is the only double temple in Egypt dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek and the falcon god Horus. The ruins of the temple were spilled over a long time by more than half by sand. They were first uncovered and restored in 1893. The temple was built during the Greek period from 304 to 31 BC. And hundreds of mummified crocodiles were found around the temple.

After visiting the Kom Ombo temple the boat will depart for Edfu and in the afternoon visit:

The Edfu Temple
It was built by the Ptolemies for the falcon god Horus Behdeti from 237 to 57 BC. Built. Until 1860 AD, the temple was hidden under the sand and Nile mud, only then it was exposed by the Frenchman Marriette. Every year, the wedding of Horus of Edfu with the Hathor of Dendara was celebrated, as well as the feast of the victory of Horus over Seth.

After visiting the Edfu Temple, the ship travels from Edfu to Luxor vis the lock city of Esna

Day 5Luxor

After breakfast on the ship you visit in Luxor:

The Valley of the Kings
Let yourself be enchanted by the more than 3000 years old, wonderful murals in the tombs of the Pharaohs. So far 64 tombs have been found in the Valley of the Kings, of which you can visit three. In the Valley of the Kings are found the tombs of the kings of the New Kingdom (circa 1550-1069 BC 18-20 Dynasty). In 1922 the Englishman Howard Carter discovered the tomb of TutAnchAmun with its golden treasures.

The Hatshepsut Temple
The mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut dates back to the 18th Dynasty, 1470 BC. She had her impressive terrace temple built by the architect Senenmut. She was always portrayed as a man, which can be clearly seen from the very well preserved statues in the temple. In the Christian era, a monastery was built on the temple, which was used until the 11th century and in the 19th century, the monastery ruin was demolished.

Karnak Temple
It is the largest temple complex ever built. Here the ancient Egyptians immortalized the holy family of Thebes, Amoun-Re, his wife Mut and the son Chonsou. The complete construction of the temple took over 2000 years. Among the most significant areas of the temple is the large columned hall with 134 papyrus columns, built by Seti and completed by Ramses II.
