We collect you from your hotel at 9 am and drive to Esna, around 1 hour away, where our ship is anchored.
But before we hoist the sails, we will visit the Khnum Temple of Esna <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Esna>; . Despite its sleepy atmosphere, it is unjustifiably overshadowed by its more monumental cousins. Only the portico of the original temple building remains, but its 24 columns over 13 meters in height with lotus-leaf capitals are a highlight of pharaonic architecture. Let your gaze drift higher and drink in the beauty of this luxuriant stone vegetation.
After marveling at these wonders of the ancient world, you are ready for your magical cruise.
Today we sail to Edfu where you will encounter a temple dating back to the end – and, simultaneously, the culmination of an architectural tradition spanning over 3 millennia. This pharaonic temple was dedicated to Horus, the falcon god, celebrated here in many text and image cycles. Explore the many chambers and halls with us and marvel at the immensity and magnificence of these monuments.
You now have time to digest your impressions on the deck of our ship while the Nile Valley glides past. We soon arrive at the wadi of Shatt er-Rigale, where you can stroll through lush green palm groves on the very fringe of the barren, inhospitable desert. We will anchor in Gebel el Silsila.
The chain of sandstone cliffs at Gebel el Silsila was used as a gigantic quarry, where tons of stone was chiseled for many of the pharaonic temples we have already visited on our dahabiya tour. But this was also the location of numerous shrines and cult buildings, including the famous Great Speos of Pharaoh Horemheb and the fascinating Nile chapels from the New Kingdom, once chosen to be inundated by the Nile in the annual flooding.
Our next stop is the Temple of Kom Ombo
Located on a bend of the Nile. The exceptionally beautiful double temple of Kom Ombo construction of which began in the Ptolemaic dynasty was dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek and the falcon god Haroeris. Sobek was celebrated by the burial of countless mummified crocodiles, whose astonishingly well-preserved bodies are on display today in a museum.
In the small town of Daraw, we take you to a private camel stable where you can take a close look at the lovely camels. Afterward, we take a stroll through the busy and colorful market streets of the town and stop in a local coffee shop to watch the bustle some more.
After a final substantial breakfast on our dahabiya, Captain Mohammed and his crew bid you farewell.
Today’s sightseeing includes:
Aswan High Dam: visit the famous Aswan High
Dam, an engineering miracle used as an embankment dam situated across the Nile River, was built in the 1960s to protect Egypt from annual floods.
Temple of Philae: visit the great Philae island temple. a boat trip to the Temple of Philae, which was built in honor of the goddess Isis.
Unfinished Obelisk: Continue to the Unfinished Obelisk in the granite quarries of Aswan where much of the red granite used for ancient temples and colossi came from. The Unfinished Obelisk located in the Northern Quarry still lies where it was carved when a crack was discovered as it was being hewn from the rock. Your qualified Egyptologist guide will explain how the 1-tonne obelisk was carved, and why the crack caused it to be abandoned.
Check-in your hotel in Aswan
Transfer from Aswan to Hurghada

The entire country of Egypt deserves to be explored in its stunning detail, but there are places that must be seen above all else such as the breathtaking Red Sea of Hurghada, the wonders of Cairo, the pyramids Giza, the Great Sphinx, the Egyptian Museum, the Khan El Khalili Market, the wonders of Luxor such as the Valley of the Kings, the temples of Karnak and Hatshepsut, and the wonders of Aswan such as the temple of Abu Simbel, the temple of Phileus, the Obelisk unfinished and wonders of Alexandria such as the Citadel of Qaitbat, the Pillar of Pompey, and the Library of Alexandria. Learn about the best places to visit in Egypt.
The best time to travel to Egypt is during the winter from September to April as the climate becomes a little tropical accompanied by a magical atmosphere of warm weather with a winter breeze. You will be notified in the week of your trip if the Climate is unsafe and if any changes have been made.
Egypt is a big country with a rich civilization and always welcomes travelers from all over the globe at any time. Egypt is now one of the best tourist countries to have a great vacation, check Egypt’s last updates regarding the tourism sector and you will find great efforts in the last few years.
Keeping in mind that Egypt is a conservative society, dress moderately as you wich, but of course, light cotton clothes are preferred during the summer, and a cover for your head like a hat or scarf to protect you from the sun, a jacket for the winter nights will come in handy, and something comfortable for your feet like sneakers or a flip flop.
In a restaurant, it is good to give between 5 and 10% tips to the waiter. For a small favor, like carrying luggage or parking a car, a few Egyptian pounds would be appropriate. No less than five. Often times in Egypt you will find someone tending to the bathroom to keep it clean. Giving them a few Egyptian pounds is an appropriate amount. Tipping your tour guide and vehicle driver is completely optional but should be considered if you’re provided with great service. If you decide to tip feel free to give what you think your experience was worth.
There are many touristic areas in Egypt where special concerns are not necessary; however, in less touristic places, relatively modest dress is recommended. Women should avoid very tight clothing, dressing with relative modesty is a way of respecting the local culture.
Egypt has a variety of delicious cuisines but we recommend “Ful & Ta’meya (Fava Beans and Falafel)”, Mulukhiya, “Koshary”, a traditional Egyptian pasta dish, and Kebab & Kofta, the Egyptian traditional meat dish, read more about The Best Traditional Egyptian Food
