Then, get the opportunity to take a camel ride and get a classic photo with Giza in the background.

After landing in Luxor, we are transferred to our 5-star Nile River boat to settle into our accommodations and have some lunch. After a little time to get your bearings on the river, the group will depart for a tour of the East Bank, where you will take in Karnak Temple and all of its glory. Explore the giant obelisks, statues and ancient hieroglyphics that are surrounded by towering stone columns. After some time exploring, the group will head back to the boat for dinner. The night is yours to enjoy.

Get the chance to view it’s towering walls and intricate hieroglyphics as you experience one of the best preserved temples in Egypt. You’ll be amazed at the architecture that this was built between 237 and 57 BC in honor of the Egytian god, Horus. Then back to the ship for lunch and tea as we make our way to Kom Ombo.

Day 6 - March 26th: Enjoy breakfast on the boat before venturing out with the group to visit the High Dam and the Unfinished Obelisk, the largest known ancient obelisk.

But saved by the Egyptian government, alongside UNESCO, by being deconstructed and rebuilt on higher ground. After your eventful day, it is back on the boat for the last night. Have dinner and reminisce with your fellow travel mates before letting the calm waters of the Nile lull you to sleep.
