Day Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Aswan Discovery and Setting Sail to Kom Ombo

Your adventure begins when you arrive at Aswan Airport or Aswan Railway Station to embark on an unforgettable journey aboard the luxurious Dahabiya Nile Cruise.

Upon your arrival, our representative will welcome you and provide you with any assistance you may need. Accompanied by a tour guide specializing in Egyptology, you will begin your historical exploration of Aswan.

Start your day with a visit to the stunning Temple of Philae, a sacred ancient monument that has been moved to its current location to preserve its splendor despite the progress. Moving the temple prevented its submersion under Lake Nasser, created by the huge Aswan High Dam.

Continuing your journey, witness the marvel of the High Dam in Aswan itself. This massive structure gave rise to Lake Nasser, one of the largest artificial lakes in the world. Your exploration then takes you to the vibrant Aswan Bazaar.

Immerse yourself in the local culture and enjoy a shopping experience filled with souvenirs, perfumes, spices, and more. Your guide will ensure you get the most out of your purchase without overpaying.

As the day begins, step aboard the elegant five-star Golden Cruise Ship. Indulge in a sumptuous lunch as the cruise sails gracefully towards Kom Ombo.

As the sun sets, enjoy a delicious dinner on board, followed by a peaceful night’s rest in your luxury cabin as you gently drift on the waters of Kom Ombo.

Tour FAQ

Can I get a refund if I cancel the tour?

The refund policy for canceling a tour can vary depending on the tour company, the terms and conditions you agreed to when booking the tour, and the circumstances surrounding your cancellation. It’s best to refer to our terms and conditions page or contact us to inquire about the refund policy for cancellations.

Can I change the travel date?

In general, it is often possible to change the travel date, but it may be subject to certain conditions and fees. Airlines, for instance, typically offer options to change flight dates, but they may charge a change fee and any difference in fare. It’s important to review the terms and conditions of your ticket or booking and the policies of the airline or travel agency you booked to understand the options available to you.

Similarly, hotels and other accommodations may have different policies regarding date changes. Some may allow free or low-cost changes if made within a certain time frame, while others may have more restrictive policies or charge a fee for modifications.

To determine whether you can change the travel date and the associated costs or requirements, I recommend contacting the airline, hotel, or travel agency you booked with. They will be able to provide you with accurate and up-to-date information based on your circumstances.

Remember, it’s always a good idea to review the cancellation and change policies before making any travel arrangements to understand your options in case of unforeseen circumstances or changes to your plans.

Do I need to apply visa?

Travelers often must obtain a visa before entering a foreign country. A visa is an official document issued by the destination government that permits you to enter and stay for a certain period. Some countries have visa waiver agreements with certain nationalities, allowing visitors to enter without a visa for a specified period. However, this exemption usually has limitations, such as the purpose of travel or the length of stay.

It is important to note that visa requirements can change, so checking for updates before making any travel arrangements is recommended. Allow enough time for the visa to be processed, as it can sometimes take several weeks or even months. You can contact us to help you obtain the visa.
