Chateau Lafayette Nile Cruise Itinerary

Day 1: Aswan City Tour - Aswan ON Upon your arrival in Aswan on a Friday, a representative from Travel Joy Egypt will greet you and transfer you by private air-conditioned vehicle to the beautifully renovated Chateau Lafayette Nile Cruise ship for check-in before 12pm. You'll then enjoy lunch onboard as your cruise begins. In the afternoon, you'll disembark for some sightseeing. First is a visit to the High Dam, an engineering marvel constructed in 1960. Then, a motorboat will skillfully navigate to Philae Temple on Agilika Island, dedicated to the goddess Isis during Graeco-Roman times. Before returning to the ship, you'll stop to admire the immense Unfinished Obelisk, dedicated to Amun-Ra. Dinner will be served onboard as the evening is left free for your leisure in charming Aswan. Should your flight arrive much earlier, our team will happily begin tours directly to optimize your time. After lunch and dinner included, you can relax and soak in Aswan's beauty from the cruise's decks.

The next day will begin with breakfast served onboard the cruise ship. Then, an Egyptologist tour guide will lead you to explore the Temple of Kom Ombo, an incredible structure dedicated to the worship of Sobek and Horoeris. Afterwandering through its halls and learning about its history, you'll return to the ship for lunch on the sun deck with views of rural Egypt drifting by along the Nile. Later, you'll take an exhilarating chariot ride to the Temple of Horus in Edfu, renowned for its magnificent preservation. Once your time at this icondic site has come to an end, it's back onboard to relax for the remainder of the afternoon on the deck or in your stateroom. Dinner will then be served as night falls and an Egyptian folkloric stage show by the staff begins for passenger entertainment. Meals on this day consist of breakfast, lunch and dinner onboard the Chateau Lafayette Nile Cruise.

Breakfast will be served as you set sail towards Luxor. Here, a magical tour of western Thebes and its sacred lands awaits you. First up is the famed Valley of the Kings, where royalty of antiquity were entombed, allowing you to glimpse into ancient Egyptian burial traditions. Next is the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut at Deir el Bahari, a spectacular structure skillfully carved into the very mountainside. No visit to Luxor would be complete without admiring the towering Colossi of Memnon, all that remain of Amenhotep III's mortuary temple. After these remarkable sites, you'll reboard the cruise for lunch. The afternoon is for relaxation or independent exploration. Then dinner and another night of rest on the Nile await, taking in the tranquil surroundings as twilight falls upon the timeless river. Meals today are breakfast, lunch and dinner, all served onboard the Chateau Lafayette.

On your final morning, breakfast will be provided prior to check-out at 8am. Travel Joy Egypt representatives will then guide you on a tour of Luxor's eastern side. First, you'll marvel at the Karnak Temples Complex, the largest religious structure ever created. Sprawling over 100 hectares, its preserved remains provide a glimpse into its former glory. Next is the Temple of Luxor, built by 12th Dynasty rulers and later added to by Ramesses II. After learning about its rich history, your Travel Joy Egypt services will conclude with a private transfer by air-conditioned van to your Luxor destination, where you will be free to continue independently exploring. This day's sole meal is breakfast to fuel you for your last adventures in Luxor before check-out from the Chateau Lafayette Nile Cruise. Thank you for sailing with Travel Joy Egypt - we wish you safe travels!

Day 1: Luxor East Bank - Luxor ON Upon arrival at Luxor's airport or train station on a Monday, a Travel Joy Egypt chaperone will politely greet you and escort you by private air-conditioned transportation to the awaiting Chateau Lafayette Nile Cruise for check-in before noon. After finishing boarding, you will embark on touring Luxor's eastern shore beginning with the stupendous Karnak Temple Complex, the ancient world's grandest construction endeavor dedicated to Amun-Ra since Predynastic Days. You'll follow your guide through its remains left from the 3rd Dynasty onwards. Next comes the Temple of Luxor established in the 12th Dynasty's reign and later augmented by Ramesses the Great, located at Thebes's heart like Karnak dedicated to Amun-Ra. Upon concluding sightseeing, refreshments will be provided back on board before dinner. If time permits earlier arrival, tours commence straightaway to optimize your experience. An evening folkloric performance and overnight in Luxor city are expertly arranged. Travel Joy Egypt ensures comfortable touring and lodging throughout your Nile agenda. Do enjoy relaxing aboard the stately Chateau Lafayette with lunch and dinner included today.

A hearty breakfast is served aboard the Chateau Lafayette this morning as you set sail towards Thebes' fabled western region. There, majestic historical marvels await your party of travelers. First up is the Valley of the Kings, spiritual home to New Kingdom monarchs. Its meticulously hewn tombs offer insight into how Egypt's rulers embraced the afterlife. Next, the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut stuns at Deir El Bahari, integrating flawlessly into the mountainside in a great architectural feat. Before returning for lunch, pause to gaze upon the weathered Colossi of Memnon sculptures, honorary guardians overlooking centuries past. With nourishment and relaxation in mind, the afternoon provides leisure to ponder all you've discovered. Then dinner and overnight allow for rest beneath the Nile's glittering celestial canvas. Another successful day of cultural enrichment has been thoughtfully crafted for all onboard by Travel Joy Egypt.

A filling breakfast aboard the cruise readies you for an intriguing day led by your enlightened tour director. First is a visit to Edfu's magnificent Temple of Horus, renowned for its grandeur and preservation among Egypt's treasure troves from antiquity. Later, lunch is served as the vessel peacefully glides towards Kom Ombo. Disembarking, you'll explore this dual locale devoted to Sobek and Haroeris with history emanating from its walls. Time to unwind on the sun-soaked deck seeing riverbank scenes of villages and farmlands float by - lifeblood of ancient Egypt's glory. While dusk arrives, dinner is provided while sailing southward. At journey's end, the port of Aswan welcomes you for sights anew tomorrow and comfortable overnight accomodations on the Nile. Each detail of your luxury cruise itinerary is seamlessly tended to by Travel Joy Egypt.

A nourshing breakfast sets the stage for your discoveries in Aswan today. Your Egyptologist guide ensures insightful encounters with this region's antiquities. First up is admiring the towering engineering prowess of the High Dam conceived under President Nasser. Then embarking upon riverbound adventure by motorboat to Philae Temple on beautiful Agilika Island, its architecture shrines Isis's famed mythology. Before returning to the ship, pause at the Unfinished Obelisk marvelously shaped in granite yet left incomplete - imagining its intended immensity under Ramses II's reign. Lunch and afternoon tea with idyllic views are provided. Later free time allows individual pursuits or onboard relaxation. Dinner ensures sustained energy for more sightseeing tomorrow. Overnight docked in Aswan, I wish you safe and inspiring adventures with Travel Joy Egypt. Please let me know how else I may enhance your educational and memorable Nile journey.

On your final morning, a hearty breakfast will be supplied onboard. Then, a Travel Joy Egypt representative will accompany you to Aswan's airport or station for your onwards travel. We hope you've gained wonderful insights into Egypt's treasures traversing the River Nile. Should time allow, there is an optional excursion to Abu Simbel's awe-inspiring temples of Ramses II and Nefertari. By private van or domestic flight, our licensed guide will enlighten as you disembark at the temples built into the mountainside, marveling at their icons of antiquity against the desert backdrop. After fulfilling your cultural immersion, safe return transport is provided to Aswan for check-in at your resort or airport to fly to Cairo. It was our pleasure enhancing your Egyptian experience through responsible tourism. We wish you safe journeys ahead and hope to welcome you again in this magical land.

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.
