For Your Daily Itinerary On The Nile Select Tabs Below

Itinerary of the Day

One of the "greatest experiences of your life" commences with your flight connecting into CAIRO in Egypt. (Meals: EnRoute)

Itinerary of the Day

At CAIRO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, you will be met by the 'TRAVEL HOUSE OF EGYPT' representative and transferred to the CAIRO SONESTA TOWER HOTEL (or similar Superior Comfort Level Hotel) for the next 3 nights in Cairo. (D)

Itinerary of the Day

A morning drive will bring you to SAKARRA, about 22 miles south of Cairo. Some of the oldest pyramids and a complex of pharaonic burial sites are found here. Next, you will visit the newly opened PYRAMID of DAHSHOUR. After lunch, a short drive will take you to GIZA where you will marvel at the grandeur of the PYRAMIDS, including CHEOPS, which is one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Seeing the ageless pyramids along the Nile is like stepping into a time machine. Coming face-to-face with the SPHINX, who has been staring into the desert for five-thousand years, is wondrous. (B-L-D)

Optional Activity

Optional Evening Opportunity to Experience the Sound and Light Show at the Pyramids

Itinerary of the Day

Experiencing CAIRO includes hearing about Islamic religion in the ancient mosques and sensing the bustle of nearly 14-million people. Visiting the CITADEL, the MOSQUE and the BAZAAR is experiencing an enthralling mix of old and new. In the Bazaar you can begin practicing the ancient art of bargaining. In the afternoon, enjoy the treasures of the EGYPTIAN MUSEUM and the fabulous KING TUT TOMB EXHIBITION. The evening ends with returning to the CAIRO SONESTA TOWER HOTEL (or similar Superior Comfort Level Hotel) for the remainder of your stay in Egypt. (B-L-D)

Itinerary of the Day

Following an early morning flight to LUXOR, you will board a beautiful Deluxe Sonesta Nile River Cruise (or similar Superior Comfort Level Ship) for the next four days. Your first 'On-Land' excursion is to the East Bank of the Nile, seeing two of Egypt's finest temples, LUXOR and KARNAK. The 4000-year-old Karnak was the seat of Amon-Re, the Imperial God. It may just take your breath away as you survey the temple structure which focuses on the awesome HYPOSTYLE HALL. LUXOR, sacred to Amon, is beautiful with its impressive statues of Ramses II. There you will marvel at the inner sanctuary rebuilt by Alexander the Great...better yet, recognize familiar signs and symbols of temple worship which reveal the eternal nature of covenant making. (B-L-D)

Itinerary of the Day

The morning begins with crossing the NILE to the West Bank and continues with a lively visit to the NECROPOLIS of THEBES, burial ground of the great Pharaohs, and also the COLOSSI of MEMNON. Today's highlight is visiting the fabulous VALLEY OF THE KINGS, where, so far, sixty-four Pharaonic tombs have been discovered, including TUTANKHAMEN'S TOMB. Winding through tunnels and corridors, you discover the TOMB OF SETI-I, an extraordinary underground complex with breathtaking paintings. (B-L-D)

Itinerary of the Day

Passing through the river locks of the Nile at ESNA, you head for EDFU, where horse-drawn carriages will take you to the best-preserved temple in Egypt, the TEMPLE OF HORUS, the Falcon-headed God. A clearer comprehension of religious rituals emerges as you gain a better understanding of how temple worship must have been conducted in ancient Egypt. A noon sailing takes you to KOMOMBO. Visiting the unique Greco-Roman temple perched majestically along the Nile, you begin to realize that everything in this 'Double' temple is built in pairs, dedicated both to the crocodile-headed Sobek, God of Nile fertility, and Haroeris, the Sun God. (B-L-D)

Itinerary of the Day

After breakfast, you will leave the stately Nile Cruise Liner for a memorable visit to the ASWAN DAM, situated on the Nile's first cataract. Seeing the PHILAE TEMPLE is a delightful experience. Then memories of the Pharaoh's monuments are awakened as you walk in Aswan's PINK GRANITE QUARRY. You will recall these memories as you rediscover granite pillars as distant as ancient Caesarea in modern Israel. An afternoon of interest is in store as you circle the ELEPHANTINE ISLAND and sailing in a traditional NILE FELUCCA, bringing you in and around the many surrounding islands. A stop at the BOTANICAL GARDENS is like a walk through God's garden. The AGHA KHAN MAUSOLEUM is a poignant reminder that man is continually building magnificent buildings to worship God. (B-L-D)

Activity of the Day

Today is a day at leisure. You are free to attend Sabbath Services with the Cairo Branch of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (transfers provided). The rest of the day is on your own to rest and relax. (B-D)

Optional Magnificent Petra REVEALED add-on departs Cairo this evening.

Crossing over the Sinai via modern jet plane is reminiscent of the forty-year trek the Israelites took although they did not have the comfort or speed of air travel. Follow the ancient Israelites' route into the Holy Land through today's Kingdom of Jordan.

See Petra Itinerary

Itinerary of the Day

Homeward, with pleasant memories of a spectacular land discovering the footprints of ancient Israel in the Land of Egypt. Recall the experiences of Joseph and Moses.

Itinerary of the Day

At Amman Queen Alia International Airport, after passport control, claim your luggage. Upon exiting luggage claim & customs, a 'PLAZA TOURS' representative will meet and assist you onto your Superior Comfort Level Hotel for the remainder of your stay in Jordan. (D)

Itinerary of the Day

An early drive will bring you to PETRA. Here you will find yourself beginning to experience an adventure much like the movie, "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," where Indiana (Harrison Ford) discovers the coveted Holy Grail. It was filmed on location at Petra, helping to make it Jordan's most popular tourist attraction. Petra, carved out of stone more than 2,000 years ago, is hidden in craggy mountains. We reach it by horseback and by walking through a narrow defile or "SIQ" flanked by towering cliffs. The sudden view of Petra's most spectacular monument, the KHAZNEH or Treasury, is dramatic. Other monuments carved right into the multicolored mountains are spread throughout the area. Following your adventuresome tour, you will return to Amman. (B-L-D)

After checking out of the hotel a PLAZA TOUR representative will meet departing guests and assist you with your transfer. This will be Salaam with a blessing of Peace as you take precious memories back to your homes. (B)
