Within the complex, you will find the great “Hypostyle Hall” which is an incredible forest of giant pillars. Thereafter, you will visit the Luxor temple which was built by Amenhotep III and Ramses II for rituals and festivals and is dedicated to the god Amen.

After breakfast on board the Nile cruise, you will fly to Abu Simbel. Once you arrive in Abu Simbel, you will go visit the impressive Temples of Ramses II in Abu Simbel. The complex is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the "Nubian Monuments," which runs from Abu Simbel downriver to Philae (near Aswan). The twin temples were originally carved out of the mountainside during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II in the 13th century BC, as a lasting monument to himself and his queen Nefertari, to commemorate his alleged victory at the Battle of Kadesh, and to intimidate his Nubian neighbors. However, the complex was relocated in its entirety in 1968, on an artificial hill made from a domed structure, high above the Aswan High Dam reservoir. The relocation of the temples was necessary to avoid their being submerged during the creation of Lake Nasser, the massive artificial water reservoir formed after the building of the Aswan High Dam on the Nile River. Abu Simbel remains one of Egypt's top tourist attractions. With your qualified Egyptologist as your guide, you will enjoy a personalized visit to the temples of Abu Simbel. With its four rock-hewn pharaohs, your guide will explain the history behind this magnificent site, including how the temples were discovered by accident in 1813. Due to the large number of visitors to Abu Simbel, guides are not permitted inside either of the two temples you will visit to avoid overcrowding. Following your visit to Abu Simbel, you will return to Aswan. Once you arrive in Aswan, you will be taken back to your cruise ship. Dinner and overnight on board the Nile cruise

day tour to Dendara, Abydos After breakfast on board the Nile cruise, you will enjoy an excursion by private vehicle to Dendara where you will visit the Temple of Hathor, before continuing for an afternoon of sightseeing in Abydos, home to "The Cult of Osiris." It is a place where most ancient Egyptians would have made a pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime. Your first stop will be Dendara. The approach path to the Temple of Hathor is between two Roman fountains that end at the massive entry gate. Hathor was the goddess of motherhood and peace and was generally shown as a cow or a woman with a cow's head. The enclosure walls are mud-brick and date back to the Roman era. Within the walls are the temple, two birth houses, a Coptic Basilica, a sanitarium, a sacred lake, and the Temple of the Birth of Isis. The temple has a long history with evidence that Pepi I (Old Kingdom) rebuilt the temple, while other texts refer to reconditioning by Thutmose III, Amenhotep III, and Ramses II and III (New Kingdom). Additions were made during the Greek, Roman, and Ptolemy periods. Your final stop will be Abydos which is located in Middle Egypt. It is an ancient holy place and burial ground of the rulers of the late prehistoric kingdom, as well as the first attested kings of the politically unified Egyptian state. Buildings constituting the settlement area in northern Abydos date back to predynastic times and have been found around Kom es-Sultan, while recent excavators have found an Old Kingdom residential area to the south-east which contains a street of mud-brick houses with courtyards and a faience workshop with its kilns. Abydos is home to "The Cult of Osiris," the god of the dead. It is said the head of Osiris was buried at the site after he was murdered by his brother. After the conclusion of your tour, you will drive back to your cruise ship for drop-off. Dinner and overnight on board your Nile cruise.

After breakfast, you will check out and disembark from your cruise ship. You will then fly to Cairo, and attend your last dinner at an Egyptian home.
