The Wow Factor, Cruise, History & Culture
Of all the most ancient civilizations in the world, Egypt’s archaeological sites are undoubtedly the most well-preserved and the most stunning site to visit!
This trip is designed for in-depth exploration with interesting curation, a comfortable pace, unique “wow” experiences, and luxurious travel arrangements. It is befitting to refer this trip to be epic by getting to enjoy several exclusivities; a Special permit for sunrise at the Pyramid, a private visit to the Egyptian Museum as well as Wahtye’s Tomb in Saqqara that was left untouched for almost 4,500 years until its recent discovery, with a special lecture by renowned archaeologist and a top Egyptologist guide to share the deep history of the country.

Upon arrival in Cairo, enjoy lunch before we discover the surprising Coptic Cairo heritage including the Hanging Church built into the walls of the water gate, and Abu Serga where the Holy Family was rested after fleeing Israel.
Later, enjoy private entrance to The Egyptian Museum after it closes to the public, visit the whole museum including King Tut golden mask room, just for the group.
While the pyramids are the highlights of Cairo, the city was also one of the greatest Islamic Centres of the medieval period and one of the world’s oldest Christian communities. We will explore Islamic Cairo, and Khan El Khalili Bazaar, a large bustling open-air bazaar.
Afterwards, transfer to the airport for your domestic flight to Luxor.
Luxor is the capital of ancient Egypt during its most glorious period of the New Kingdom. It is befittingly referred to as the world’s biggest outdoor museum. We spend a full day at the West Bank today.
Explore the Valley of the Kings and Queens. Admire the exquisite ancient artwork on the murals of the tombs of Pharoah such as Seti I, Ramses V & VI and King Tut as well as Queen Nefetari. Then, visit Queen Hatshepsut Temple and the Colossi of Memnon.
This morning, drive about 1.5 hour to the temple complex at Dendera and visit the Temple of Hathor, one of the best-preserved ancient Egypt monuments.
Drive back to Luxor and board the luxurious Nile Cruise, Historia where we will stay for four nights. In the afternoon, we will dwell deeper into Egyptian history with a visit to the Luxor Museum.
A sight to behold today would be the Karnak Temple, which is the largest religious building ever been constructed, over the course of two thousand years.
Our cruise set sail in the afternoon for Esna. Relax and enjoy the scenery of the rural life along the Nile.
Today, continue to enjoy our Historia Cruise journey and visit another two stunning ancient Egyptian monuments – the Ptolemic Temple of Horus at Edfu and the unusual Temple of Kom Ombo that was unusually dedicated to two gods.
Another “wow” experience today.
Take an excursion by flight to Abu Simbel. The colossus statues of Ramses II and Nefatari set by the lake is indeed a sight to behold. This is also perhaps UNESCO most amazing effort to save a monument.
