Following breakfast, we’ll begin at the Great Pyramids of Giza c. We’ll also approach the Sphinx and its watchful gaze.

The Temples of Abu Simbel and Edfu

Steigenberger Nile Palace Hotel - Luxor, Egypt

This morning we fly south to Abu Simbel c and the two temples of Ramses II. Originally on the southern frontier of Ancient Egypt, the nearly 3,000-year-old temples with 67-foot-high statues of the Pharaoh, still intact and carved from solid rock, are overpowering even today. We’ll fly to Aswan where our private vehicle will meet us for our drive up the Nile to the Temple of Horus at Edfu, another of Egypt’s most spectacular ancient monuments. This 2,000-year-old temple complex is renowned for its monumental reliefs, its impressive setting and exquisite hieroglyphics. We’ll continue on to Luxor.  Meals B+L

Day

Valley of the Kings and the Temples of Karnak and Luxor

Steigenberger Nile Palace Hotel - Luxor, Egypt

After breakfast, we cross the Nile and drive west to the fabled Valley of the Kings c. Here, the pharaohs of the 18th Dynasty built tombs deep into the arid mountainsides, abandoning the funerary pyramids of their predecessors. We’ll be here early, before any crowds, to admire the vivid frescoes that adorn each tomb in miraculous condition, visiting the most elaborate tombs of Ramses III, Ramses IX and King Tutankhamen. In the neighboring Valley of the Queens, we’ll visit the elegant Tomb of Queen Hatshepsut, one of two female pharaohs. With our skilled Egyptologist in the lead, we’ll next stand in front of the massive pillars of the great Karnak Temple c to admire the enormous Grand Hypostyle Hall, still the largest religious hall in the world. We’ll then walk the recently renovated Avenue of the Sphinxes to the temple walls of Luxor c, embellished with skillful carvings of the gods accompanied by festive processions of priests, musicians, dancers and sacred cows. We return to our hotel for the evening. Meals B+L

Day

Mid-morning we’ll fly back to Cairo c and visit the Khan al-Khalili Bazaar, which since the 15th Century has been Cairo’s major center of foreign goods, jewels and even slaves in its early days. We’ll have lunch in an atmospheric restaurant with time to roam the extensive alleyways of the market. Meals B+L

This morning we’ll drive to Memphis c, the site of Egypt’s ancient capital, to marvel at the formidable Colossus of Ramses II. Nearby we’ll see the Alabaster Sphinx before heading to Sakkara at the edge of the Egyptian desert to visit the impressive Step Pyramid of King Zoser c, the oldest standing stone structure in the world. We’ll also enter the 4,000-year-old Tomb of Mehu, a wealthy merchant, with its vibrant drawings of daily life that adorn the walls.  Meals B+L
