Itinerary

Day1: Aswan tour and Kom Ombo

When you arrive at Aswan Airport or Aswan Railway Station for your Dahabiya Nile Cruise, your tour manager will greet you and assist you in any way that they can.
You will also be accompanied on a historical tour of Aswan by a highly experienced and duly qualified Egyptologist tour guide.
Your first stop will be at the magnificent Philae Temple, an ancient site that appears on nearly every high-quality tour itinerary. Philae Temple, like many other ancient monuments in this region of Egypt, was relocated in its entirety to its current location. This wonderful relic of the ancient world would have vanished beneath the waters of Lake Nasser following the construction of the Aswan High Dam if this had not been done.
Following your visit to Philae Temple, you will proceed to the Aswan High Dam. This massive dam created Lake Nasser, one of the world's largest man-made lakes.
Finally, you will be taken to Aswan's bustling bazaar, where you can immerse yourself in the local culture. It's also a great place in Aswan day tours to buy souvenirs, perfumes, spices, and so on. Haggling for the best prices is a way of life here, but even if you aren't good at it, your guide will make sure you don't overpay if you see something you want to buy.
After taking in the atmosphere of the bazaar, you will be escorted to the pier to board the utterly charming, a 5-Star Dahabiya that will be your home for the remainder of your 4-Day Aswan to Esna Dahabiya Nile Cruise.
After you board, you will be served a delicious onboard lunch as your river yacht sails silently towards Kom Ombo. You will also enjoy a lovely onboard dinner in the evening, and you will spend the first night of your cruise in your cabin, on the water at Kom Ombo.

Day2: Kom Ombo and Sail to speos horemheb

All passengers will disembark after a leisurely breakfast on board the Dahabiya Nile Cruise, and you will enjoy a fascinating visit to Kom Ombo Temple. This magnificent Greco-Roman temple is actually two temples, one of which is a mirror image of the other. Because this complex was built to honor two different gods, one could not appear to be better than the other in any way. This is a magnificent site with a magnificent history, and your Egyptologist tour guide will be delighted to share their knowledge with you.
Following your temple visit, you will return to your Dahabiya river yacht in time for another delicious onboard lunch as it sails towards Gebel el Silsila, one of Egypt's lesser-visited ancient relics.
After a brief stop here, the boat will sail to the opposite side of the river and dock alongside the Speos of Horemheb, an ancient rock-hewn temple. This is a fascinating place to visit, but it is not included in regular Nile River cruises because large cruise ships are unable to dock here.
If the weather cooperates, you will enjoy a delicious dinner within the grounds of the illuminated temple in the evening. If the weather doesn't cooperate, dinner will be served on the Dahabiya's upper deck, where you'll still have a great view of the lit-up temple. Soft music will also be played to set the mood. Finally, the day will come to an end with a relaxing night's sleep on board in the comfort of your luxury cabin.

Day3: Edfu, island dinner and sail to Esna

Enjoy another leisurely breakfast, and then disembark once all passengers have finished eating, and you will be taken to Edfu Temple. This, however, is no ordinary temple visit. Instead, you'll be transported to the temple in a beautiful horse-drawn carriage. Edfu Temple was buried beneath the sand for approximately 2,000 years, ensuring that it is now the best-preserved ancient temple in Egypt.
After you've seen everything there is to see at the temple, you'll head to a large nearby bazaar. You can either walk through the bazaar or ride through it in your horse-drawn carriage, stopping whenever you want to buy anything that catches your eye.
Once you've finished shopping at the bazaar, it'll be time to board the MS Amoura, which will then set sail for a small island in the Nile River, where everyone will disembark for a delicious dinner and some truly memorable Egyptian entertainment. If the weather doesn't cooperate, dinner will be served on the boat's sundeck.
Later that evening, the boat will slowly sail towards Esna, where you will spend the night in the blissful comfort of your cabin.

Day4: Luxor Monuments Tour

The day begins once more with a hearty breakfast served on board the ship. Even though this is the final day of your 4-Day Aswan to Esna Amoura Dahabiya Nile Cruise, there is still plenty to see and do. After all passengers have finished their breakfast, you must check out and disembark before the action begins.
A modern air-conditioned vehicle will transport everyone to Luxor, with the Valley of the Kings as the first stop. Archaeologists have discovered more than 70 royal tombs, including those of King Ramesses II and King Tutankhamen, at this site of a vast ancient necropolis. In fact, King Tutankhamen's mummy is still inside his tomb, though nearly all of the artifacts discovered in the tomb are now on display at the Egyptian Museum in Cairo.
Your next stop will be at another breathtaking location, this time the rock-cut temple of Queen Hatshepsut. No words can adequately describe this remarkable site, which explains why it is now one of Egypt's most visited archeological treasures. Following that, you will see the famous Colossi of Memnon. While there isn't much left of the original site, it has a fascinating history and is included on most Nile cruise itineraries.
Finally, you will travel to Karnak Temple. Although this location is referred to as a temple, it was more of a temple city that grew for about 2,000 years as each new ruler added to it. It's a fantastic place to visit and one you won't soon forget.
Your Luxor day tours is now complete, and you will be transferred to the airport or railway station, depending on your travel plans.
Your 4-Day Aswan to Esna Dahabiya Nile Cruise is now officially over, but you will leave with memories to last a lifetime.
