Morning visit to Luxor temple and set sail to Edfu

Breakfast on boat and let’s visit Luxor Temple. This beautiful temple was built on the east bank of the Nile by Amenhotep 3, “the Magnificent.” The temple was dedicated to the Theban triad: the great god Amon-Ra, his wife Mut and their son Khonsu. Afternoon we start sailing towards Esna city. The distance is around 55 km. Let’s enjoy with the beautiful views of the Egyptian countryside until we reach the lock of Esna, we pass through the lock and continue sailing to Edfu. The distance is around 65 km. Lunch & dinner on board. Overnight and evening entertainment program.

Edfu temple visit

In the morning after the breakfast we will visit Edfu temple of Horus, but to reach the temple we should catch a cab. The entire temple is embellished with wonderful reliefs. This is one of the most beautiful and certainly the best preserved of Egypt’s monuments. There is no ancient monument in the world that can match it.

Sail to Kom Ombo and temple visit

Then we will take a motor boat and visit New Kalabsha site with its Nubian monuments (optional visit).

Philae temple by feluca

Our next goal will be a jewel of Upper Egypt, a beautiful small island of Philae. To reach the extraordinary temple of Philae island we will sail by a feluca boat. The original monuments of the island was dismantled & re-erected on another island called Agilkai, slightly to the north of Philae. So, this is the place we are visiting these days.
