Aswan – Luxor. This morning we board a motor boat and cruise along the River Nile, passing some of the small islands en route to Seheil island, where we disembark and visit a local village and school before enjoying lunch at the home of an Egyptian family. The motor boats of Aswan are proudly owned and crewed by friendly local sailors and they have been adapted from a Felucca style of vessel to comfortably carry travelers. Lunch will be served in the home of an Egyptian family. After lunch, we cruise back to Aswan for our afternoon/evening train journey to Luxor, one of the world’s greatest open-air museums. The 4000-year-old site of ancient Thebes, known today as Luxor, is our base for the next three days.
Overnight: Luxor | Breakfast, Lunch
Toda we visit Karnak Temple, more than a temple, Karnak is a spectacular complex of sanctuaries, pylons, statuettes and obelisks. Built on a grand scale, Karnak is probably Egypt’s finest ancient temple. Free afternoon or wander along Luxor’s historic waterfront. This evening, we travel in horse-drawn carriages to the illuminated Temple of Luxor where we enjoy a tour in the cool evening air. Rest of evening free.
Overnight: Luxor | Breakfast
Early this morning we head to the West Bank of the Nile for a guided tour of the legendary Valleys of the Kings. Attempting to confound thieves and grave robbers, the New Kingdom pharaohs awaiting their passage into the after-life were secretly entombed with their worldly wealth in the cliffs of the valley. The cliffs, bereft of vegetation are home to a vast necropolis of tombs, some of which you can enter. Some of the tombs are so well preserved that the colors of the incredible pharaonic friezes are still as vibrant as when they were first painted.
After leaving the Valley of the Kings and saying goodbye to our tour guide we return to our hotel, where there will be a little time to freshen up before hotel check out and onward departure transfer to Luxor international Airport. Our tour concludes at this point with fond memories of a magical family holiday to Egypt!
