Board your cruise ship in time for lunch, then visit the Grand Temple of Luxor before returning to your cruise ship for dinner. (B/L/D) Stay Four Nights: Nile Cruise
3 Nile Cruise: Luxor – Edfu
Journey to the final resting place of Egypt's Pharaohs, immersing yourself in the ancient history of Egypt's Valley of the Kings. Visit the mortuary temple of Queen Hatshepsut and the Colossi of Memnon. Later, sail to Edfu. (B/L/D)

Pay homage to the falcon god Horus at Egypt's best-preserved cult temple in Edfu, then sail upstream to Kom-Ombo, where life remains much as it was a thousand years ago. Tour the Temple of Kom-Ombo. Donning our galabeas, we enjoy a traditional Egyptian dinner on board this evening. (B/L/D)

This morning continue the Temple of Kom-Ombo before continuing to Aswan, where we'll set sail on a traditional felucca across the mighty Nile to see the Botanical Gardens on Kitchener's Island. On arrival, explore the Aswan Dam built to curb the periodic flooding of the Nile. Our next stop is the Temple of Isis, followed by a visit to the Unfinished Obelisk, lying semi-carved from the solid bedrock. As the dipping sun sets the sky on fire, admire the silhouette of feluccas plying the river's waters. (B/L/D)

“Wonderful Egypt”
- VIC, Australia Nov 2018 1 Helpful Vote

The Egypt tour with Trafalgar was excellent. The 9 days covered all must see sights and were well paced. Good quality hotels and breakfast. Our tour directer Sabaa was very knowledgeable, organised and professional. Booking the tour through Global Journeys with Georgie was a breeze and hassle free. Thank you Georgie.
