Today we will visit with you two beautiful places. First of all let’s go to a remote island known as New Kalabsha to see Nubian monuments, saved from Nasser Lake inundation: beautiful Kiosk of Kertasi, Mandulis Temple – Kalabsha Temple, Beit el-Wali temple and even Garf el-Husein. To reach the place we will take with you a motor-boat and enjoy 20 minutes boat ride along Lake Nasser.
Next we will cross the High Dam of Aswan. Here we’ll stop for 15-20 minutes to take some panoramic pictures of the lake and the memorial and then proceed to another island – Island of Philae and its beautiful structures: Trojan kiosk and some temples.

Overnight in the hotel in Luxor.
At sunrise you can take an optional tour Hot Air Balloon Luxor.
This day we will dedicate to two main attractions of Luxor city. First of all we’ll go to explore Luxor Temple, walk along Sphinxes Avenue (4,5 km) and enter Karnak Temple. We’d recommend to enter Karnak Temple from the side of the avenue, as it is more impressive. Not to take this long distance on foot there is an option to start the avenue a half way. Karnak Temple tour will take more than 2 hours as there are many new places opened now to visitors: small temples, chapels and of course, Karnak Open air museum, are all available for curious travellers.
Lunch in a local restaurant after the tour and optionally you can visit in Luxor museum. In the evening Sound & Light show at Karnak Temple can be done as an optional activity. Back to the hotel and overnight.
Day of your departure you can spend at your discretion. Check out of the hotel 12 pm. Transfer to the airport as per the flight schedule.
