Day-by-Day Itinerary

AswanMarket-1.jpg (36155 bytes)Tuesday, Nov 29:  Check out of the cruise boat this morning before going sightseeing with others from the boat.  Return to the cruise boat for lunch where you are met by an American Express representative who will bring you to your hotel in Aswan.  

The afternoon is yours to explore Aswan's old market place, the Nubian museum, relax by the pool or take a sunset fellucca (sailboat) ride.
Hotel: New Cataract Hotel or Basma Hotel.  Breakfast, Lunch.

Wednesday, Nov 30:  After breakfast at the hotel an American Express representative will bring you to Abu Simbel by A/C minivan.  The weather can interfere with traveling to Abu Simbel by plane.  It is not uncommon to have flights delayed or canceled.  Since you are traveling by road you can be sure that you will get to see the site, AND you will be there when it is not filled with the crowds that come by plane.  Afternoon arrival in Abu Simbel with time to visit the temples of Ramesses II and his queen, Nefertari. The temples are walking distance from your hotel. 

This evening is a special treat, the Sound & Light Show at the Abu Simbel Temples.  Updated just a few years ago, this is the most technologically advanced Sound & Light show in Egypt and is truly spectacular.
Hotel: Nefertari Hotel.  Meals: Breakfast, Dinner.

Thursday, Dec 1:  If you choose, you can rise early this morning and return to see the sunrise at the temples over Lake Nasser.  The Ramesses II Temple is the one that was constructed to have the first rays of morning light shine through the doorway to the back of the temple on 2 days of the year.

After breakfast is the drive back to Aswan where you will get your flight back to Cairo.  Upon arrival in Cairo you are met and assisted by an American Express representative and escorted to your hotel, conveniently located beside the airport so that you will not have to face Cairo traffic if you are departing tomorrow.
Hotel: Novotel Cairo Airport Hotel.  Meal: Breakfast.

Friday, Dec 2:  Departure flights home or continue your stay in Egypt with the Alexandria and Old Cairo Extension.
Meal: Breakfast.

There may be changes to this itinerary due to circumstances beyond our control.
