This trip to Egypt in 11 days led us to tour one of the most fascinating countries in the world. Egypt is the land of pharaohs, the largest open-air museum on the planet. Just to see the pyramids of Giza or Abu Symbel is already worth the trip.
The first day of the trip, we flew from Barcelona to Aswan, where we landed and moved to the pier to embark on the cruise that would take us on the Nile the following days of the trip to Egypt in 11 days.
On the second day of the trip and continuing with the cruise, we make stops and visit the Great Dam of Aswan and the Temple of Philae (Temple of Isis ...) before sailing again towards Kom Ombo.
On the third day of the trip to Egypt in 11 days we visit the Horus temple in Edfu, we sail to Esna, we pass through the sluice and continue to Luxor, another of the most fascinating visits you can make in the country.
On the fourth day of the trip, we continue on the cruise and pay a visit to the Necropolis of Thebes, the Valley of the Kings, the Queen Hatshepsut Temple, the Colossi of Memnon and in the afternoon, we leave the cruise to move to a hotel in Luxor, where after resting we will visit the temples of Karnak and Luxor.
On the fifth day of the trip to Egypt in 11 days we visited Dentera, to return in the afternoon to Luxor.
On the sixth day of the trip we moved to Aswan, enjoying a felucca ride on the Nile in the morning.
On the seventh day of the trip to Egypt in 11 days, we enjoy the visit to Abu Simbel, where we see one of the most incredible places in the world.
On the eighth day we return from Abu Simbel to Aswan and transfer to the airport to fly to Cairo where the next day we will go to know the symbol of Egypt, its Pyramids.
In the afternoon we will meet Sakkara and Menphis, two highly recommended visits if you have time in the area.
On the tenth day we make several visits in Cairo, visiting the Egyptian Museum, the Citadel (Mohammed Ali Mosque) and the Khan el Lhalili market.
On the last day of the trip to Egypt in 11 days, we return to Cairo airport, where we take a plane that will take us back to the city of Barcelona.
Although Egypt can be visited for free, you will find it better priced and safer to book an organized circuit with an agency.
If you decide travel to Egypt with agency, we recommend you book one of the best rated circuits by travelers with a guide in Spanish:
