The Giza Pyramids Complex will be in your presence, the complex has existed for 4000 years which makes it one of the oldest structures on the face of the planet. The Giza complex consists of three main pyramids, six little pyramids, the great sphinx, and the place of immortal preservation of the valley temple.
The Great Pyramid of Khufu lies among the skies of paradise, it is known for being the last intact structure of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. It is older than 4500 years old which makes it the world's oldest mystery because of the fringe theories attached to its origin, and its complex interior compared to its magnitude. It was constructed in 2580 BC for 20 years using 2,300,000 pieces of limestone each weighing 2.5 tons and a workforce of 100,000 free skilled workers resulting in making the height of the pyramid 147 m (481 ft) which made it the tallest building in the world for 3800 years until the construction of the Lincoln Cathedral in England in 1311.
The Great Sphinx is one of the most mysterious objects in existence, it has the shape of a mythical creature called the sphinx that has the body of a lion and the head of a man who is believed to be king Khafre to represent power and wisdom. It is known as Abu Al-Hawl which is Arabic for The Father of terror. The sphinx is at the height of 73 m (240 ft) and 19 m (66 ft) and was carved out of single limestone rock.
The Valley temple is home to the Mummification process, it was constructed within Egypt's Old Kingdom (2686 2134 BC) within the complex. It's one of the best-preserved archeological sites of the ancient Egyptian civilization and the source of great information about the mummification of Ancient Egypt. The valley is made of limestone, and granite and holds unique diorite statues of King Khafre.
The Grand Egyptian Museum is a golden portal leading to cosmic ancient Egyptian creations of celestial intelligence that were cultivated across 5000 years of continuous innovation and vivid artistic imagination. Within this colossal wonder is the once-in-a-lifetime chance to discover some of the greatest archaeological monuments and artifacts ever made which include :
The Hanging Obelisk, King Ramses Il Statue, The 10 Statues of King Senusert, The Grand staircase, Statues of Ptolemaic Kings and Queens, The Victory Column of King Mercnptah, The epic Royal Regalia, and the Grand Atrium & Gift show.
There is a VIP ticket that gives access to witness a number of other artifacts, for more information contact us.
Proceed to have your lunch at a local restaurant in Cairo. Then we will move to continue your Cairo, Luxor, Aswan & Abu Simbel holiday by visiting:
The Egyptian Museum contains the largest collection of ancient Egyptian artifacts and monuments in the world dating back to more than 4000 years across. Inside the two-level building are a collection of rare & priceless archeological wonders that stood the test of time.
Finally, you will drive to Cairo Airport then catch your flight to Luxor then check-in 5* hotel for spending the overnight.
On day three, you will enjoy your breakfast at the hotel, then accompany your Egyptologist tour guide to explore all the famous Luxor tourist attractions such as:
The valley of the kings is like a time capsule located in the heart of the holy mountain which has acted as the final resting place of the greatest kings and queens of Egypt's new kingdom (1570-1070 BC). It holds 63 tombs filled with various enchanting treasures, artifacts, statues, hypnotically beautiful decorations, and the remains of pharaohs like Rameses (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, VII, IX, X), Amenhotep I, Hatshepsut, and the famous King Tutankhamun which all resulted in the valley becoming a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 1979.
The Hatshepsut Temple is renowned for being the beauty of Luxor, it gained the name Djoser-Djeseru (Holy of Holies) and showcases the might & will of one of the most successful rulers in the history of ancient Egypt Queen Hatshepsut. The temple was designed in 1479 BC and took 15 years to construct. The design of the temple is based on the concept of Classical Architecture of the new kingdom and within the temple lies some of the most impressive statues, decorations, and artifacts in all of Egypt.
Colossi of Memnon is different than most of the monuments in Upper Egypt, it has been known as the colossal guardians of Luxor. They are basically two massive blocks of quartzite sandstone standing at the height of 18 m (60ft) weighing 720 tons each and have the shape of Pharaoh Amenhotep III(1386-1350). The colossi were damaged due to a large earthquake in 27 BC but were rebuilt again in 199 AD. The statues gained quite a fame during the Greco-Roman period due to The Vocal Memnon which resulted from the statues singing from time to time which were nothing more than the sound of the wind passing through the statue at dawn.
Then move to have your lunch on an island, so your tour includes a boat trip in the Nile River followed by a tour to:
Karnak temple is one of the holiest places on the face of the planet, it was known as Ipet-isu The Most Selected Of Places, and Pr-Imn House Of Amon, it dates to more than 4000 years and is the largest religious man-made construction in the world & also the biggest open-air museums on earth. It was the heart of the religious worship of the entire ancient Egyptian kingdom for more than 1500 years to various deities but was dedicated primarily to the Theban triad that consisted of God Amun with his wife the Goddess of Justice Mut and his son the moon god Khnsou, plus other gods like the great Osiris, Montu, Ptah and Isis.
You will spend your overnight at your hotel in Luxor.
In the morning time, you will have your breakfast and check out from the hotel in Luxor to continue Cairo, Luxor, Aswan & Abu Simbel tour by boarding a 1*class train to Aswan, the moment you arrive you will join your private Egyptologist tour guide to enjoy a tour around all Aswan tourist attractions such as:
The High Dam represents the modern might of the city of Aswan, the dam was constructed between 1960 & 1970 during the reign of president Gamal Adel-Nasser. The dam was designed as a cooperation project with the Moscow-based Hydro project Institute to have better control over Nile flooding, generate Hydroelectricity, and provide increased water storage for irrigation in its reservoir lake Nasser.
The Unfinished Obelisk is a tale that was sadly left unfinished, it was ordered by Queen Hatshepsut (1508-1458 BC) to stand at the entrance of the Karnak temple. It was known as "Tekhenu" which means to pierce the sky" and shows how obelisks were created from scratch and the method of construction of Ancient Egypt, it reached the height of 42 m and weighed 1200 tons. Unfortunately, the obelisk was cracked during construction and remained at the same location even today.
You will enjoy your lunch in a local restaurant in Aswan to get ready to complete your day by visiting:
Philea Temple is truly the essence of myth, allure, and charm in the city of Aswan, it is famous for spreading the" Myth of Osiris" which entails the husband of Isis "Osiris" Is killed by His brother Set out of pure hatred & envy then Osiris is resurrected to be the ruler of the underworld afterward Set is defeated by Isis and Osiris Son Hours the sky God ending an age of tyranny & injustice. The temple was relocated in the 60s to the island of Agilkia as a part of a rescue mission led by UNESCO after the construction of the Aswan High Dam.
You will then check in at Aswan 5* hotel to spend your overnight.
Morning time, check out from the hotel before you will be transferred with your breakfast boxes to Abu Simbel by a private air-conditioned car joined by your private tour guide.
The two great Abu Simbel Temples have been the final frontier & the guardian of the southern border since its creation by King Ramses II (1279-1213 BCE) during the new kingdom to immortalize his legacy till the end of times. Everything about this temple reflects the ultimate concept of greatness & glory. The temple was called the "Temple of Ramesses, beloved by Amun". Abu Simbel consists of two temples, the bigger one is for Ramses where the sun festival takes place on the 22 of February & October of each year when the sun shines on the faces of the four seated statues of Ramses II, Ptah (God of creation), Amun (The Creator God), and Ra (Sun God), the smaller temple is dedicated to his wife Queen Nefertari.
