Day 1: Aswan Nile Cruise Tours

Our Memphis Tours representative will meet and greet you at Aswan Airport or Train Station and then transfer you by a private A/C vehicle to your New Year Nile Cruise for embarkation before lunch on board. Once lunch is finished, your highly qualified Egyptian Tour Guide will accompany you on a visit to the Aswan High Dam built in the 1960’s to provide the much needed electricity and irrigation for Egypt. Nubia, the area that was flooded, experienced the biggest and most thorough archaeological excavations that Egypt has known. Then we go to see the ‘Unfinished Obelisk’ which still lies in the granite quarries which provided ancient Egypt with building materials. It would have been the largest piece of stone ever handled but when a crack was discovered it was abandoned where it was being hewn. Cross by boat to Angilika Island, to see Philae Temple, one of the Nubian Temples rescued before the High Dam was built. Enjoy Philae’s long colonnades, towers and reliefs which include the last surviving hieroglyphic and demotic inscriptions in Egypt. Back to your Nile boat with afternoon tea included. Later a Captain’s welcome cocktail with dinner on board along with a colourful and vibrant Nubian Show. Overnight stay in Aswan.

Sail to Edfu to visit the huge Ptolemaic Temple of Horus at Edfu, which is the most complete and best preserved of the Egyptian Temples, consisting of many columns, halls, chambers and chapels. Two statues of Horus flank the twin towered entrance gate; and inside, one of the interesting inscriptions lists the titles of books (scrolls) held in the library. Dinner on board the Nile Cruise whilst sailing to Esna with a fun Egyptian Galabeya Party in the evening. Overnight at the Lock in Esna.
