Day 2 – Cruising; Horse-Drawn Carriage Tour and Sightseeing

Wake up and enjoy a wonderful onboard breakfast at leisure while your Dahabiya sails to Edfu. After you have finished your breakfast, relax in your cabin or sit outside on the vessel’s spacious sundeck and admire the passing scenery. Once you arrive at Edfu, you will disembark, and you will be taken to visit Edfu Temple in a lovely horse-drawn carriage.

Edfu Temple is one of the biggest and most well-preserved temples of the ancient world, largely because of the fact that it lay hidden beneath the sand for around 2,000 years. Arriving in a horse-drawn carriage at the entrance to this site, which is flanked by two beautiful granite statues of Horus the falcon god, is really an experience you will never forget.

After you have had ample time to explore this amazing site, your carriage will take you to a massive bazaar where you will be able to barter for things to take back with back with you for family or friends. You will also be able to choose whether you want to explore the bazaar on foot, or whether you want to be driven around in the carriage.

Finally, you will return to the MS Amoura in time for a good onboard lunch, and during this time the vessel will be sailing towards Silsela Hormoheb Temple. On arrival, you will be taken to explore this fascinating site, and you may even have your dinner inside the grounds of this ancient site. If not, then dinner will be served on a tiny nearby island, or on your boat’s sundeck. You will also be sleeping here tonight, but you will be sleeping onboard in the comfort of your cabin.

Meals Included: Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner

Day 3 – Sail to Kom Ombo and on to Aswan

Wake up to another wonderful breakfast on the water while you sail silently to Kom Ombo. When you arrive, everyone will disembark, and you will be taken to visit Kom Ombo Temple. This is a spectacular Greco-Roman temple, and your Expert guide will be more than happy to explain the fascinating history of this remarkable site.

Following your visit to this temple, you will head back to your river yacht, and it will then begin sailing towards Aswan, stopping just outside the gates to the city.

Day 4 – Aswan Sightseeing

After another fine onboard breakfast, your Dahabiya river yacht will tie up and everyone will disembark for a visit to the indescribable Philae Temple. Like many other ancient relics in the Lake Nasser region, Philae Temple was moved in its entirety in order to save it from the rising waters of Lake Nasser following the construction of the Aswan High Dam.

Once you have had plenty of time to explore and photograph this marvelous site, you will be taken to see the Aswan High Dam itself, and then you will have the opportunity to wander around the bustling Aswan bazaar before finally returning to the boat for a much-deserved break and another good night’s rest on the water.
