    What to Expect
    Day 1: Depart from Luxor (L,D)

    On arrival in Luxor, meet your tour representative for the start of your tour of the West Bank. Luxor has often been called the world's greatest open-air museum, and the number of preserved monuments are unparalleled anywhere else in the world. Stroll around the ruins at the Valley of the Kings, used primarily for the burials of pharaohs. Admire the massive stone statues of the Colossi of Memnon, and the mortuary temples of the Temple of Hatshepsut. You will board your 5-star Nile River cruise boat in time for lunch, and enjoy afternoon tea as you relax before an evening dinner and belly dance show.

    Day 2: Luxor - Esna (B,L,D)

    After breakfast, tour the East Bank of Luxor and visit the Temple of Luxor, built by Amenhotep III from Nubian sandstone. You will also visit the other great monument of the East Bank, Karnak Temple, said to be the 2nd most visited site in Egypt after the Pyramids of Giza. Enjoy lunch onboard, and set sail for Esna. Afternoon tea will be served, and in the evening you can dance the night away to a disco party.

    Day 3: Edfu – Kom Ombo (B,L,D)

    Today you will tour Edfu, site of the Ptolemaic Temple of Horus. Visit the temple and ancient settlement, known in Roman times as Apollinòpolis. Then, set sail for Kom Ombo as you enjoy lunch onboard. Disembark to explore Kom Ombo Temple, located on a bend in the Nile where, in ancient times, sacred crocodiles are said to have basked in the sun. The temple is dedicated to the crocodile-god Sobek, and the falcon-god Haroeris. Return to your boat for an onboard dinner and galabeya party. Overnight on board in Kom Ombo.

    Day 4: Aswan (B,L,D)

    Sail to Aswan to see the High Dama and the Temple of Philae. Dedicated to the love goddess Isis, the temple is only accessible by boat and was turned into a church of St. Stephen under Emperor Justinian. Lunch will be served on the boat. Afternoon tea and dinner will be served back on your cruise boat as you overnight onboard in Aswan.

    Day 5: Aswan - Departure (B)

    Following breakfast, disembark for the transfer to Aswan Airport. An optional trip to Abu Simbel by plane can be arranged on request.

    We went from Luxor to Aswan on the MV Tulip. The cruise and staff were very friendly and helpful except for the masseur who is inexperience ,not very good and expensive for what he does.If I pay for 60 minutes I expect to have a 60 minute massage not a 50 minute massage.
