Assouan Dahabiya Nile Cruise Itinerary

Greetings! Upon arrival at Luxor International Airport or Luxor Train Station, a representative from Travel Joy Egypt will be available to assist. An expert local guide will then accompany visitors to the thriving merchant town of Esna located along the Nile. Esna is renowned for possessing a beautiful ancient temple buried 9 meters below the ground known as the Temple of Khnum dedicated to the ram-headed god. The tour will initiate with a short walk leading to the astonishing archaeological site. Visitors will have a chance to marvel at the ingenious subterranean structure. Afterwards, a stroll through the streets offer an engaging experience where guests can admire exquisite textiles and other authentic goods sold in the local markets. Overnight stay will be provided aboard a luxurious Nile cruise vessel as it sails towards the next destination while fine dining is included for lunch and dinner

The Nile cruise ship will gently sail through the night as guests rest onboard, bound for the historical town of El Kab on the eastern banks. El Kab formerly served as the capital of Upper Egypt and visitors can explore its architectural wonders including the Temple of Nekhbet and a collection of elaborately carved tombs nestled within the surrounding mountains. Upon arrival, travelers will disembark and embark on a lovely walk passing through a charming fishermen's village en route to Ancient El Kab's necropolis area. Later in the afternoon, the vessel will dock at Edfu home to the exceptional Greco-Roman Temple of Horus, renowned as one of Egypt's most pristinely preserved holy sites from antiquity. Guests will then take an authentic horse-drawn carriage through the lively city streets to visit the awe-inspiring temple complex. Afterwards, the cruise resumes as meals are provided and travelers set sights on a private Island paradise, delighting in the serenity of the Nile waters during transit.

Day 3 has been designed around enjoying nature along the Nile River. After a morning walk and breakfast, the cruise will embark for a full day of sailing. In the afternoon hours, the vessel will drop anchor near a private island where guests can disembark and immerse themselves in optional activities such as exploring the lush greenery or taking a refreshing dip in the waters. As evening falls, there may be a chance to journey into the desert setting along a scenic valley surrounded by sandstone boulders adorned with ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs and early human inscriptions dating back to prehistoric times. These historical etchings signify the starting point of the shortest route through the desert towards Libya, estimated at 28 days during antiquity. Later in the night, the boat will dock directly below the magnificently lit Temple of Gebel Silsileh, framed against the darkness. Throughout the day, meals including breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided.

On day 4, the cruise will arrive at a unique section of the Nile River where it flows through the narrowest point between two mountain ranges known as Gebel Silsileh. Exploration here will prove to be an exclusive experience as larger Nile vessels are restricted from docking, leaving guest onboard as some of the sole visitors to this fascinating archaeological site. After disembarking, travelers will gain the rare opportunity to set foot within the small Temple of Pharaoh Horemheb and take a contemplative stroll through the extensive sandstone quarries where ancient Egyptian artisans once extracted stone that was utilized in constructing many of their most legendary architectural marvels. A scenic cafe nestled away along the riverbank awaits, serving hot beverages like tea and the traditional flavored waterpipe for relaxation. Later, the cruise ship will moor against a picturesque shoreline where guests may stop to enjoy a leisurely al fresco lunch followed by refreshing swims in the revitalizing waters of the Nile before resuming the cruise downstream.

Awakening to a new day surrounded by serenity along the Nile River, guests aboard the cruise will disembark upon arrival at Kom Ombo town and its excellently preserved Ptolemaic-era temple complex. Constructed during Greco-Roman rule on the foundations of a previous sanctuary, the striking architecture artfully lines a picturesque bend along the Nile's banks. Dual dedication was made to the local deities Sobek, god of fertility depicted with a crocodile's head, as well as the falcon-headed god of wisdom Horus. After exploring the sanctum filled with mysteries of ancient Egyptian religion, travelers will then visit Kom Ombo's newly established Crocodile Museum containing an array of awe-inspiring mummified crocodile specimens. These remnants attest to the significant role the Nile reptile played locally in antiquity. Following a full day of discoveries, fine meals will again be served as the boat sets sail after sunset.

To conclude the spectacular Nile cruise, guests will start their morning aboard the luxury cruise vessel enjoying a final delicious breakfast. Afterwards, travelers will disembark and be escorted to Aswan's international airport or train station in time for their scheduled departure flights or rail service home. This marks the completion of an unforgettable Egyptian adventure experiencing living history, cultural treasures and picturesque scenery alongside the legendary River Nile from onboard comfortable accommodations. A sincere thank you to all who joined for creating lifelong memories through this grand journey showcasing a slice of Egypt both preserved and inspiring.

EXCELLENT ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!!! It's a shame that it can only be given 5 stars, because I would like to give it 20 stars for the excellent service they offered me. I wholeheartedly recommend Travel Joy Egypt, from the first message their kindness and willingness to help me has been their personal trademark. I am a woman and I traveled alone to Cairo for 5 days, and I have never felt so well cared for and safe, this thanks to this tourism company that cared from the first moment to make me feel comfortable, they always knew how to adapt to my needs. Omar is an excellent advisor, very kind, patient, quick to respond and has been a key player in coordinating all the details of my trip. Hesham, my assigned Spanish guide, 10/10, he is an EXCELLENT guide, his level of Spanish is too good, he is very patient too, and he is also very intelligent with everything related to Egyptian culture, he always had an answer to all my questions . The driver of the vehicle was very friendly and spoke English. The car is always clean, with air conditioning and with window protectors for the sun. They always arrived on time and invited me to eat Egyptian snacks, I really appreciated this! I am not a person who repeats the same destination but I am sure that Egypt will be an exception, I want to return with my family and without a doubt we will take the same service with Travel Joy Egypt. Thanks for everything !!! Andrea

Perfect trip Our entire stay in Egypt was amazing thanks to Travel Joy. They made sure my mom and I had the best 12 days touring Cairo, Aswan, Luxor and Hurghada. Kero and Emily were always making sure that everything went well and that the trip coordination was excellent! They also helped us with all the reservations and with every favor we asked for during our stay. We couldn't be happier to have had Mito and Mohamed as our guides. They speak excellent Spanish and answered all of our questions about the temples. We will definitely return to Egypt and choose Travel Joy as our host again. We leave very happy and feeling as if we had been with friends these days.

Memorable multi-city tour of Egypt Our group of 13 had a memorable multi-city tour of Egypt thanks to Travel Joy and guide Mostafa. Over 6 months of planning ensured smooth sailing from start to finish. Comfortable transit aboard a spacious Toyota Coaster added enjoyment between destinations. We were delighted by most aspects of the 3-night deluxe Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor, taking in iconic sights along the river. A road trip to Abu Simbel and Alexandria broadened cultural horizons outside Cairo as well. Our dedicated guide Mostafa and his cheerful team, including Omar and Kiro, anticipated every need with excellent hospitality. Relying on their local expertise enhanced appreciation for Egypt's rich history. While optional excursions hold value exploring off-itinerary, do thorough research beforehand. Knowing typical pricing prevents potential mismatches in expectations. When time permits, leisurely browsing artisan workshops and perfumeries can also prove rewarding after confirmed interest and minor negotiation. Overall, Travel Joy Egypt delivered wonderful memories through meticulous coordination. I'm grateful for their passion in sharing this magnificent land and cultures with visitors from around the world.
