Egypt + Lake Nasser Tour Package: 11 Days

7.20 / 10
Everything went as scheduled. Service and guides of unquestionable professionalism. It would be nice, however, if Civitatis were to take the time to speak with the appropriate party to resolve the issue of tips. If, as was our case, the contract contemplates in writing, that all tips are included, it is slightly uncomfortable that some guides ask you for it -also that it is a voluntary gesture- and that they seem to ignore the clauses of the contracts of each client ..

Enjoy a cruise on the Nile and Lake Nasser with this Egypt + Lake Nasser Tour Package lasting 11 Days all-inclusive. The Giza pyramids, the Luxor Temples and much more await you.

Egypt + Lake Nasser Tour Package: 11 Days

Day 1

Last call for passengers on the flight to Cairo! As soon as you land in the Egyptian capital, we'll help you sort your visa so that you can board a flight to Luxor without any issues. The flight only lasts an hour between the two cities. From the airport we'll take you on a motorboat to the banks of the sacred river of the pharaohs, ready for an unforgettable four-night cruise on the Nile with everything included!

Day 2

Ochre, reddish, orange, scarlet... The sunrise in Lúxor is a natural spectacle that we can admire from the decks of the ship. The cruise ship will dock on the eastern bank of the Nile so that we can enjoy a guided tour around Karnak Temple. Its exciting history will captivate us from the very first moment. We'll also immerse ourselves in the fascinating past of Pharaonic Egypt by visiting the Luxor Temple, the Colossi of Memnon and the Hatshepsut Temple, whose colossal dimensions never fail to surprise us. After the visit, we'll return to the ship for lunch and continue the journey towards Edfu.

Day 3

The Horus Temple, in Edfu, hides many secrets about the falcon god. By visiting this archaeological site on the west bank of the Nile we'll enter one of the most fascinating (and at the same time most enigmatic) periods for Egyptologists. Then, to complete the pieces that make up the puzzle of ancient Egypt, we'll sail to the eastern bank of the "sacred river of the gods" to visit another outstanding archaeological site, Kom Ombo, to see the Sobek and Haroeris Temples. We'll continue this unforgettable cruise on the Nile, sailing towards the southern city of Aswan.

Day 4

This day will be dedicated to the island of the Philae Temple, we'll board an Egyptian felucca to reach the island. After finding out unfathomable secrets within this exceptional ruin declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, we'll return to the cruise.

Day 5

After breakfast, the Nile cruise will finish but there are still many surprises and attractions to be discovered. First, we'll drive from Aswan to the symbolic Abu Simbel Temple. The stone giants with the busts of Ramses II are not the only emblems inside the temple. The giant sculptures carved in the annex Nefertari Temple are also important. After enjoying free time in the afternoon, we'll attend a dinner with a sound and light show over Abu Simbel.

The day will end starting a three-day cruise on Lake Nasser, where we'll enjoy the all-inclusive benefits of the ship.

Day 6

Qasr Ibrim, the citadel on the shores of Lake Nasser, will be the first stop on a tour. Then we'll continue with a visit to the Amada Temple, considered the oldest Egyptian ruin in Nubia. To complete the day, we'll also visit the Derr Temple and the ruins of the tomb of Pennut, a prominent governor in the time of Ramses IV (12th century BC). His story will accompany us on our return to the ship.

Day 7

We'll continue this all-inclusive cruise on Lake Nasser towards Wadi el Sebowa to visit the Dakka and Mahrakka Temples, locations full of mystery! Afterwards, we'll return to the boat to eat and head towards Aswan.

Day 8

We'll land on the island of the Kalabsha Temple to see the remains of the Kertasi Temple whose history, as many of the ancient buildings in this area of Egypt, is not without legend.  After the tour of the island, we'll go to the nearby airport of Aswan to take a flight to Cairo. In just an hour and a half we'll be in the Egyptian capital! From the terminal, we'll go to a hotel in the city to rest until the next day.

Day 9

After breakfast at the hotel, we'll go to the famous Giza Pyramids. Finally, one of the highlights of the tour arrives, the imposing Cheops, Kefren and Mycerinos mausoleums. We'll visit the interior of the second one to learn more about the pompous funeral rites of the ancient pharaohs, as well as the iconic Great Sphinx of Giza. 

After the three-hour guided tour of Giza, we'll take a break for lunch at a local restaurant. Then we'll go to the necropolis of ancient Saqqara to visit the Zoser pyramid. To finish the day, we'll enjoy dinner in a restaurant in Cairo before returning to the hotel.

Day 10

We'll dedicate this day to a tour of Cairo. The tour includes the Egyptian Museum, the Coptic Quarter, the Citadel of Saladin and the Alabaster Mosque. This unforgettable memory of the Egyptian capital will be completed with lunch and dinner in a local restaurant!

Day 11

Three hours before your flight departure, we'll take you to the airport in Cairo so that you can check in and board without any hassle or hurry.
