LA Sara Nile Cruise Itinerary

Day 1: Aswan City Tour - Aswan ON Upon arrival in Aswan on Wednesday, a representative from Travel Joy Egypt will greet you and transfer you by private air-conditioned van to the luxurious 5-star LA Sara Nile cruise ship. Board the ship before 12pm for check-in. Enjoy a lunch meal onboard as your cruise begins. Next, you'll visit the Aswan High Dam. Constructed in 1960 by President Nasser to control Nile flooding, it demonstrates modern engineering feats. Then, embark on a motorboat to the famed Philae Temple complex dedicated to goddess Isis, representing Greco-Roman architecture. Finally, view the Unfinished Obelisk. Made of red granite for the sun god Amun-Ra, it indicates ancient stonecutting skills. Return to the ship for evening leisure. Should you arrive early, sightseeing starts immediately to optimize time rather than waiting at the lobby. Dinner is included onboard with the night at your discretion in beautiful Aswan.

Upon waking, a sumptuous breakfast buffet will be available on the sun-dappled deck of the LA Sara. An Egyptologist will then guide you to the famed Temple of Kom Ombo, where the crocodile god Sobek and eagle-headed Haroeris were once venerated. After beholding this fascinating dual-deity sanctuary, the group returns to the cruise vessel for a relaxing lunch while admiring iconic vistas glide by along the Nile. Later, traditional chariots convey guests to the phenomenal Temple of Horus in Edfu, extraordinarily preserved from when it honored the god of the sky. Back on board in the afternoon, unwind with refreshments or activities as the ship cruises leisurely north. As daylight dims, savor a delicious dinner under the stars. Then, in a dazzling showcase, the crew perform an authentically costumed Egyptian folkloric show celebrates Pharaonic culture. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all provided for guests’ comfort and enjoyment each day.

Each morning starts with a nutritious breakfast feast onboard the cruise vessel. Then an history-filled exploration of Thebes awaits, beginning at the West Bank's famed Valley of the Kings. Wander in awe of pharaonic tombs carved within the limestone ridges, final resting places of antiquity's rulers. Next is the ethereal Deir el-Bahari Temple complex, rising magnificently from Mt. Thebes where Queen Hatshepsut reverently paid tribute to ancient deities. Artisans chiseled its structures directly from the golden mountainside, an architectural marvel. Further sights include the towering Colossi of Memnon statuary, all that remains of Amenhotep III's mortuary temple. After rejoining the group ship for a relaxed lunch, spend free time relaxing against the backdrop of scenic vistas drifting by. As evening falls, savor another exquisite dinner before settling in for the night on this floating palace.

Each morning begins with a hearty breakfast service before 8am check-out from the cruise. Next comes a tour of Luxor's eastern wonders led by knowledgeable guides. First is the sprawling Karnak Temple Complex, renowned as the world's largest religious site at nearly 100 hectares in scale. Dedicated to god Amun-Ra, marvel at its vast hypostyle halls and pylons erected over 2000 years. Concluding the tours is the magnificent Luxor Temple. Begun by 12th dynasty pharaohs and embellished by Ramses II, its sandstone walls and towering ram and sphinx statues stand testament to ancient engineering. After this enlightening exploration, guests are transferred by private air-conditioned vehicle to their chosen Luxor accommodation, where Travel Joy Egypt's services conclude. It has been our pleasure enhancing this experience through Egyptian history's most iconic sites. Safe travels!

Day 1: Luxor East Bank - Luxor ON Upon arrival in Luxor at the airport or station on Saturday, a representative from Travel Joy Egypt will transfer guests by private air-conditioned van to embark on the luxurious Nile cruise vessel before noon. In the afternoon, mighty structures of Pharaonic antiquity await discovery on the tour of Luxor's eastern shoreline. First is the immense Karnak Temple Complex, housing ruins from the Middle Kingdom onwards yet venerated as the earthly abode of god Amun-Ra. Continuing, the Temple of Luxor stands explored. Founded by 12th dynasty rulers and expanded by Ramses II within Thebes' sacred precinct, its colonnades and statues lorded over ancient rituals. Afterwards, the day's exertions end as guests return replenished to the cruise ship. An entertaining Egyptian folklore show then enlivens the starry night aboard, with a hearty Lunch and Dinner included. Should arrival time be early, sightseeing commences promptly to optimize the experience rather than passive wait times. Comfortable overnight is in Luxor.

Each morning begins with a delightful breakfast aboard the luxurious river vessel. Guests then disembark for a day of exploration along Luxor's fabled West Bank. In the sacred city of Thebes, visitors traverse the Valley of the Kings - final resting place of New Kingdom pharaohs etched within the desert cliffs. History comes alive among tombs such as Ramses VI and Horemheb. The tour also leads to the awe-inspiring Temple of Queen Hatshepsut nestled into the limestone cliffs at Deir el Bahari. Its architectural design intricately carved from the mountainside is a renowned marvel. Further sights take in the towering Colossi of Memnon statues standing vigil over the Nile plain. Rejoining the group vessel, a scrumptious lunch is served. The afternoon affords time at leisure to relax against scenic backdrops floating peacefully by. As dusk falls, a lavish dinner and comfortable overnight await on this luxurious hotel amidst the waters.

Each sunrise reveals a delectable breakfast aboard the majestic cruise vessel. Today's guiding specialists then escort travelers to Edfu's renowned Temple of Horus, one of Egypt's most intact sanctuaries dedicated to the falcon deity. The group returns replenished for lunch under way to Kom Ombo. Afternoon arrives discovering a sanctuary most fascinating - within its walls were praised crocodile god Sobek and sky-watching Haroeris. Leaving further illuminated, refreshments on the sun-drenched deck offer stunning skylines float past. A sumptuous dinner is served as the journey continues, ancient civilizations rising along the Nile banks. Under evening's first stars, Aswan comes into view - tomorrow more marvels surely await discovery in this land of the ages. But for now, a restful slumber provides restorative respite in preparation. New horizons will unfold with the dawning sun.

A sumptuous breakfast feast sets travelers up for a day of exploration across Aswan guided by an eminent Egyptologist. First is the monumental High Dam, constructed under President Nasser to regulate the Nile's waters and shield Egypt's fertile lands. Next, a motorboat whisks the group along tranquil currents to Agilika Island's renowned Temple of Philae, a Greco-Roman marvel raised to revered goddess Isis. Strolling its halls transports one to the splendors of Antiquity. Further discoveries include the colossal Unfinished Obelisk, left abandoned amid its site yet eloquently demonstrating the pharaohs' ingenious stone-shaping abilities in honour of Amun-Ra. Rejoining the cruise mid-day sates with a lavish lunch. Afternoon tea and refreshments are served aboard as Aswan's panoramas drift serenely past. Come evening, guests may explore independently before settling in for a restful night, fully sated with this land's treasures old as time.

A wholesome breakfast buffet bids travelers farewell from the cruise. Our representative then escorts guests to Aswan airport or station for onward travel arrangements. For those joining the optional Abu Simbel excursion, a private air-conditioned van awaits. Skilled guides then lead the way 180 miles south to the protected temples marvelously transplanted from their original Nile location. Upon arrival, towering rock-cut structures established by the ever-formidable Ramesses II himself stand guardian over the landscape. Within their hallowed halls shine mysteries of Egypt's past brought to life once more. As the illuminating day draws to a close, the return journey transports all safely back to Aswan. Some guests continue for check-in at chosen hotels, others board domestic flights for Cairo and new adventures beyond. Wherever paths may lead, memories of this awe-inspiring land are sure to endure forever.

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.
