Arrive in Cairo, where you are met by your YET representative and transferred to your luxury hotel

After breakfast, there will be an organizational meeting with Your Egypt Tours’ representatives. During our first day of sightseeing, we will go to Saqqara to see the Step Pyramid of King Djoser. It was constructed 4700 years ago by the legendary architect Imhotep and was the first pyramid ever built by the Egyptians. This over 200 feet high monument is the oldest pyramid in the world! Nearby the pyramid, we will visit the tombs decorated with impressive reliefs and paintings. Our sightseeing will end at Saqqara with a visit to the Pyramid of King Teti, which boasts one of the oldest pyramid texts ever discovered.

After breakfast, we will go to Dashour to see two pyramids built for Pharaoh Snefru, which belong to the oldest, largest, and best preserved in Egypt, built between 2613 and 2589 BC. The Bent Pyramid answers many questions on how the Egyptian pyramids evolved. Its unusual angle makes it one of the most unique and recognizable pyramids in Egypt. During its construction, Egyptians changed its angle. Perhaps because of the awkward angles in the Bent Pyramid, Snefru ordered to build another one nearby, and so the Red Pyramid that we will have a chance to enter is the elegant precursorto to the Great Pyramids at Giza.After visiting the pyramids, we will see the ruins of Memphis, the former capital of Egypt. In Memphis we will stop at the museum to admire a giant statue of Ramses II (about 35 feet in length) carved from monumental limestone.
 

 

 

In the morning, when the entire Giza Plateau remains closed to all other tourists, YourEgypt tours guests will have an exclusive access to this iconic site. Thanks to a special permission from the Ministry of Antiquities, you will see both the three Great Pyramids and the Great Sphinx privately. These monuments were built around 2500 BC by the pharaohs of the Old Kingdom.

 

 Other tourists can see the Sphinx from an observation terrace from a distance, but our special permission will let us enter the Sphinx enclosure, which is always closed, to the public. Your Egyptologist guide will tell us about his research on the Great Sphinx and the mystery of the Pyramids. We will also have a chance to learn about the newest project on scanning the Great Pyramids in search for hidden chambers, and the visit to the valley temple.

Next, we will have private access inside the Great Pyramid of Khufu, the only one of the seven wonders of the ancient world that is still standing today

In the morning, we will fly from Cairo to Luxor. In Luxor, we will check-in on a luxury 5-star cruise ship, our floating hotel. This 8-day Nile Cruise features various stops and site visits including all the most impressive monuments from the time of the Pharaohs. Our 5-star Deluxe Nile cruise ship offers modern sun deck, pool, spacious lounges, bar, gym, open-air and fine dining restaurants. Therefore, there will be plenty to do while sailing. Cruising the Nile on such a luxurious ship is always one of the best memories our tour participants take with them home from Egypt. At the same time cruising is the most convenient and comfortable way to travel from one place to another.

On that day, we will visit the famous Karnak temple. It is the largest temple in the world. Located on the east bank of the Nile, in the neighborhood of a sacred lake, Karnak was not a single temple but a complex of temples, halls, enclosures and obelisks. For over two thousand years from Middle Kingdom (ca. 2040–1780 BC) to Greco-Roman times (ca. 332 BC to 400 AD) it was continuously modified, expanded, and rebuilt.

After breakfast, we will start sightseeing of the west bank of Luxor. Our tour will start with a motor boat ride across the Nile to see the highlight of Luxor – the Valley of the Kings.

 

The Valley of the Kings, located on the west bank of the Nile in Luxor, has been the royal cemetery for 62 Pharaohs. Undeniably, it is one of Egypt's most important treasures. There, we will access some of the most renowned tombs. Our visit will also include the admission to the King Tutankhamun’s tomb.


When we return to the ship the rest of the afternoon will be free for leisure. Our guests can enjoy the sundeck and the stunning views of the Nile landscape while sailing to Edfu.

In the morning, our cruise ship will take us to Edfu to see its marvelous temple. The Edfu Temple is the best preserved ancient temple in Egypt dedicated to the falcon god Horus. It was built in the Ptolemaic period between 240 and 57 BC. When we return to the ship, we will cruise towards Kom Ombo where we arrive in the late afternoon.

 We will visit the Ptolemaic Kom Ombo Temple. It was built during the reign of King Ptolemy V (ca. 205 to 180 BC). The Ptolemies constructed the Temple of Kom Ombo to worship the two gods, Sobek – the crocodile god and Horus – the falcon god. After visiting the site, we will return to the ship for dinner and then we will start sailing south towards

After breakfast, we will start the sightseeing of Aswan. Our day will begin with a drive to the Unfinished Obelisk, which is the largest known ancient obelisk and is located in the ancient stone quarry. It is nearly one third larger than any ancient Egyptian obelisk ever erected. If it were finished, it would have measured around 140 feet and weighed nearly 1200 tons.
 
Next, we will take a motor boat ride to the Temple of Philae beautifully located on an island and dedicated to Isis the goddess of health, marriage, and wisdom. Philae was considered as one of the burial places of the god Osiris, so the island was a sacred place for Ancient Egyptians. The temple consists of monuments from various times extending from the Pharaohs to the Caesars.
 
After returning to the ship and having lunch, we will relax while cruising the Nile by a motor boat to the Nubian village. Small boats will take us through the narrow passages of the Nile. Before we arrive to meet the local Nubians to visit their houses and experience their way of living, we will admire the beauty of Egyptian nature and stunning views on the Nile.

The second day in Aswan will start with a journey to the majestic Abu Simbel Temple. The temple is one of the most imposing, impressive, and iconic symbols of Ancient Egypt alongside the Great Pyramid and the Great Sphinx. Abu Simbel temple was 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.

In the morning, our cruise ship will leave Aswan and head back to Luxor. You will have a relaxing day to spend on the beautiful sundeck while sailing. You will admire and enjoy the views on the Nile: flourishing green areas, desert in the distance, farmers at work, and picturesque villages. Our guide will be available on the sundeck to answer all the additional questions you may have.

We will reach Luxor in the evening.
Next, we will visit Luxor temple in the evening. Luxor temple is one of the most beautiful Ancient Egyptian temples located on the east bank of the Nile. The city known today as Luxor (ancient Thebes) was founded in 1400 BC. For centuries, Thebes was the capital of Ancient Egypt.

Another very exciting day in Luxor will start with a visit to the temple of Queen Hatchepsut and Deir el-Medina with the tombs of the workers who built the Valley of the Kings.


 Temple of Queen Hatchepsut, Deir el-Bahari
The Temple of Deir el-Bahari is one of the most characteristic temples in Egypt. It was built of limestone not sandstone like most of the other funerary temples of the New Kingdom. Hatshepsut was the first queen to rule over Egypt in ancient Egyptian history (ca. 1473 to 1458 BC). Although many people, including royal family members, objected the idea of having a lady ruling over Egypt she, through her many achievements, proved them wrong. Hatchepsut became one of the most important and successful rulers of Egypt.


  The Colossi of Memnon
The Colossi of Memnon are two massive stone statues of Pharaoh Amenhotep III. They have sat in the Theban necropolis across the river Nile for 3400 years. The original function of the Colossi was to stand guard at the entrance to Amenhotep's memorial temple – a massive cult center built during the pharaoh's lifetime, where he used to be worshiped as a god-on-earth.


 Deir el-Medina
it is a worker’s village (now an archaeological site), home to the artisans and craftsmen of Thebes who built and decorated the royal tombs in the nearby Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens. Deir el-Medina is one of the most important archaeological sites in Egypt because it provides a wealth of information on everyday life of people who used to live there.

We will fly back to Cairo. After lunch and free time at leisure

After breakfast, we will start the sightseeing of Cairo, the capital of Egypt. We will visit the Egyptian Museum in Cairo - one of the most important museums in the world. It contains the world’s largest collection of pharaonic antiquities. We will see the famous Tutankhamun exhibition with the golden mask of the boy king. During a visit to the Egyptian Museum,Your Egypt Tours will provide you with a camera permit that will allow you to take your own photos inside the museum!

After lunch, we will drive to the Saladin Citadel and Mosque of Muhammad Ali. The Saladin Citadel, which dates back to the twelfth century, is an Islamic fortress built to unite the city and protect it from Christian crusaders. The Mosque of Muhammad Ali was built on the summit of the citadel in the first half of the nineteenth century.


In the evening, during our farewell dinner, we will celebrate the two weeks of our exciting adventure

When visiting Egypt, don't drink the tap water - it is highly chlorinated. However, with enough time in Egypt, you could potentially grow accustomed to the water. This doesn't mean that the tap water is polluted, it simply means that you are not used to it, and you might get stomach problems. This happened to most people when they visit a country for the first time. They were simply not used to water there. It's a similar situation in Egypt. It is advisable to drink Bottled water during your entire holiday. That is why it is strongly advisable that you don't drink the tap water, and use it only for washing and brushing your teeth.

The best time to visit Egypt is from September until March. It is the perfect time when the weather is good and mild. From September until mid-November, when it is very nice and the temperatures are pleasant for all activities - around 25 C to 15 C. mid-Nov until the end of February is wintertime when temperatures during the day are around 12 or 15 C, and at night can drop to about 7 or 8 C. In March and April, the weather is still so nice and travelers can enjoy the Easter vacation in Egypt From May to September is the summer season. Spending summertime in a desert climate does not appeal to most travelers. Average daytime temperatures hover in the high 80s and low to mid-90s, although they can jump up into three digits in the South as in Luxor and Aswan. Summer is really hot here, prices go down and it is a good chance for travelers with a tight budget.

Egypt has a desert climate and is usually hot and sunny. winter falls between November and January, and the peak of the summer months is between June and August. Winters are generally mild, although temperatures can fall below 50 degrees Fahrenheit (10 degrees Celsius) at night. In the Western Desert. Cairo and areas of the Nile Delta may experience a few rainy days during winter. Summers can be unbearably hot, especially in the desert and other areas of the country's interior. In Cairo, average summer temperatures regularly exceed 86 degrees Fahrenheit (30 degrees Celsius), while the record high for Luxor and Aswan, popular tourist destinations on the banks of the River Nile, is 110 degrees Fahrenheit (45 degrees Celsius).

Safety and security are our first and foremost concerns! Egypt is a very safe country with a low crime rate.

There are many things to do in Egypt during your visit depending on your interests and character. Cairo, Alexandria, Luxor, and Aswan Nile cruise must be your first priority if you are a history and culture lover. You must visit the pyramids of Giza, enjoy a Nile cruise between Luxor and Aswan and enjoy visiting the most important tourist attractions in Luxor and Aswan. You can visit the city of Hurghada, Marsa Alam, or Sharm el-Sheikh Red Sea for relaxation and enjoy many activities there such as diving, snorkeling, sunbathing, or swimming. You may like to go on a safari trip in the western desert if you are an adventurer. Many other activities are available in every single Egyptian city

The high season for tourism in Egypt is all year with winter and spring being peak season for cultural travels with lots of sightseeing. Weather in Egypt is perfect for many kinds of tourism, and if coming in June, July, and August, head for the seaside resorts. Those months are very warm with temperatures that can reach around 45C. and the humidity is about 70 to 80%, but it is bearable with the sea and large swimming pools nearby. So the period of the high summer season is also a bit busy as hotels fill up with tourists from all over the world looking for a bargain, lots of sunshine, diving, snorkeling, etc. It is also a primary vacation time in Europe. If you come in the deep summer season you can still enjoy it because you can always sightsee early in the morning and go again at night when the sunsets. You will definitely need good sunscreen and a lot of liquids to drink with a nice hat on your head. Summer is a good time for people looking for good rates in accommodation and other services.

Egypt is a Muslim country and the dress code is towards the conservative side, especially for women. That being said, we are used to seeing travelers from all over the world. My suggestion would be to wear light clothes and not to wear short shorts, short skirts and alike to avoid the occasional unwanted stare. But it’s really up to you. When you visit religious places (synagogues, churches, and mosques) you do need to cover your shoulders and wear over the knee dresses, if you are planning to wear one of course. If you plan to attend the Nile dinner cruise, there is no need for formal wear unless you want to make that night a special night! Also, you will be sharing this experience with other travelers so you can dress however you feel most comfortable.

There are many Egypt Nile cruises. Not to name one but your choice depends on many things to put in mind such as the number of nights you want to spend on the cruiser, your budget, and the standard of the Nile cruise.

Most cruises have. There is another way of cruising the Nile, which is the Felucca boat. It is a traditional and charming but it is cheap as long as it will be ok to sleep on the deck exposed to mosquitos and most of these boats do not have a toilet
