PRICE & WHAT  IS INCLUDED

Day-by-Day Itinerary

Saturday, November 26: Meal: D.

Sunday, Nov 27: The boat begins its journey up the Nile in the early dawn.  You have the whole day to relax and enjoy the timelessness of the Nile.  Maybe write those postcards?  Afternoon tea on deck.  Entertainment on board in the evening.
Meals: B, L, D.

Monday, Nov 28: Your first visit today is to Edfu’s Temple of Horus, the best preserved temple in Egypt. While on the boat, your sightseeing is with an English-speaking Egyptian guide and other people on the cruise that are English-speaking.

In the late afternoon there is a visit to the Ptolemaic temple for Sobek and Haroeris at Kom Ombo. Sobek is a crocodile god and Haroeris is a form of the god Horus. The boat continues on to Aswan where you overnight.
Meals: B, L, D.

Tuesday, Nov 29:  Check out of the cruise boat before starting the sightseeing in Aswan. See the Unfinished Obelisk of Hatshepsut at the ancient granite quarry, and the new High Dam.  

Your sightseeing concludes with a trip by motorboat to the beautiful Temple of Isis at the island of Philae.  Built during the Ptolemaic era, this was the last place that the Ancient Egyptian religion was practiced and the last hieroglyphs were written.  It was closed in 550 AD by the Emperor Justinian.  This temple was one of those that were moved to higher ground when the High Dam was built.

Return flight to Cairo to return home or begin  the Abu Simbel Extension by spending the night in Aswan.
