It's a must-see attraction as it is the last intact structure of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World plus is one of the biggest structures in the world. It dates to 2580 BC which makes it older than 4500 years old. The Great Pyramid was constructed in 20 years using 2,300,000 pieces of limestone each weighing 2.5 tons and a workforce of 100,000 free skilled workers, which resulted in creating a pyramid standing at the height of 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.
One of a kind statue in the world due to its massive size and magnitude, it has the shape of a mythical creature called the Sphinx which has the body of a lion and the head of a man who was probably King Khafre to represent power and wisdom. It is known as Abu Al-Hawl which is Arabic for The Father of Terror. The Sphinx has a height of 73 m (240 ft) and 19 m (66 ft) and was carved out of single limestone rock. Just like the great pyramids its origin & age is shrouded with a lot of unanswered questions.
The place where the Mummification process took place. The valley was constructed within Egypt's old Kingdom (2686 2134 BC). It is one of the best-preserved structures of the ancient Egyptian civilization and the source of great information about the mummification of Ancient Egypt. The valley is made entirely from limestone, and granite, and holds magnificent diorite statues of King Khafra.

The Golden Egyptian Museum is one of the oldest archaeological museums in the history of the world which was built in 1901 by Khedive Abbas Helmy II in heart of downtown Cairo.

Aswan High Dam which was one of the fewest modern attractions in Aswan, was constructed between 1960 & 1970 during the reign of Gamal Adel-Nasser. The dam was designed with the help of the Moscow-based Hydro project Institute to have better control over Nile flooding, and provide increased water storage for irrigation in its reservoir lake Nasser all for the purpose of generating Hydroelectricity.
The Unfinished Obelisk is one of Aswan's unique monuments, it was ordered by Queen Hatshepsut (1508-1458 BC) to stand at the entrance of the Karnak temple with the Lateran obelisk which resides today at the Lateran palace in Rome. It was known as "Tekhenu" which means "Pierce the Sky" and shows how obelisks were made and the method of construction in Ancient Egypt, it reached the height of 42 m and weighed 1200 tons. Unfortunately, the obelisk was cracked during construction and remained there till today.
Philae Temple is the legendary temple of goddess Isis of Love & Beauty, it is famous for showcasing the "Myth of Osiris" in which 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 then set is defeated by Isis and Osiris Son Hours the sky God.

The fourth day, after enjoying your breakfast you will head to:
Kom Ombo means "The Hill Of Gold". It was constructed in the Greco-Roman period between 205 BC & 180 BC in the reign of Ptolemy V. What makes it special is the unique design of the temple as it has a distinctive double design divided into two identical sectors" one for the crocodile god Sobek and the other for the falcon sky god Horus.
Edfu Temple is one of the last temples ever built during the Ptolemaic era between 237 BC & 57 BC to be the official worship house of the sky god Horus. It is believed it was built in the same location where the fight between the devil god Set and Horus took place according to Osiris Myth. It came to light when it was excavated in 1860 by Auguste Mariette a French Egyptologist in 1860. The architecture & interior of the Edfu Temple is beautiful as it mixes Greek and Egyptian design in the finest manner.

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 and holds some of the most impressive statues, decorations, and art pieces in all of Egypt.
Colossi of Memnon have been known as the colossal protectors of Luxor, they are two 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 were very famous during the Greco-Roman period due to the Vocal Memnon which resulted from the statues singing from time to time at dawn which were nothing more than the sound of the wind passing through the statue.
