On this multi-day tour, enjoy overnight accommodation, meals, and stunning views of temples and tombs from the water. Hop off the ship at several stops. In Aswan, visit Philae Temple, the High dam, and Unfinished obelisk in its stone quarry. Once you reach Luxor, explore several temples, and visit the Valley of the Kings, where the pharaohs were buried.

Breakfast on board and then visitThe west bank at Luxor. It is one of the most important archaeological sites in the world. It is much more than what we refer to as the Valley of the Kings, though many have called the whole of the area by that name. In fact, many good books on the west bank at Luxor (ancient Thebes) are titled,"Valley of the Kings", even though they cover the entire area. It can be a bit confusing for the novice, particularly considering the actual conceptual scope of the religious concept. If one looks at just the Valley of the Kings, one only sees tombs, but the tombs were an integral part of larger mortuary complexes. Indeed the whole west bank is honeycombed with tombs, not just of the ancient Egyptian Kings, but of their families and the oblemen who served them. Also you will visit Hatshepsut Temple ( Deir el-Bahari ) and visit the two colossal statues of Amenhotep III (Colossi of Memnon). After finish the tour, you will transfer back to your ship for lunch and free afternoon in Luxor city. (B-L-D)
Disembarkation from your ship after breakfast and then start your tour to the East bank of Luxor.The Temple of Luxor and the Temple of Karnak. Unlike the West Bank, which was ever the main area for cemeteries and mortuary temples, the East Bank represented the main settlement of the living throughout the millennia - a role that has hardly changed.The vast majority of hotels and tourist facilities are to be found in the East Bank
The Temple of Luxor, open daily May-September 6am 8pm, October-April 6am-9pm- as it stands today, largely the work of Amenhotep III and Ramesses II the Great (whose colossi and obelisk stand at the entrance) Also to be seen is the small "hanging" Mosque of Abu al-Haggag, its position a reflection of the ground level that had built up before excavation of the temple precinct. After you finish the tour, we will transfer you to Luxor airport, station or any location you want to go, (inside Luxor city). (B)
