We've completed our trip with AmaWaterways on their Secrets of Egypt and the Nile cruise tour. We've had a great time on this truly bucket list destination.
We left the ancient worlds of Luxor early in the morning for a flight to Cairo. After landing we spend the rest of the day in Cairo. But just like that, we fly out late that night, ending our trip. We started in Amman Jordon and end in Cairo Egypt. We'll sum everything up in our next post. For now, enjoy our last day in Cairo.
It's hard to believe but we have one last Egyptian Temple to see on AmaWaterways' Secrets of Egypt and the Nile. Click here to start at the beginning of our trip. We're still in Luxor and a short bus ride away is Dendera Temple, dedicated to the god Hathor.
Today we are in Luxor, nearing the end of our Secrets of Egypt & the Nile tour with AmaWaterways. Luxor is a good sized city and home to one of the largest Temples - Karnac. This temple was built over thousands of years with over 30 pharaohs contributing to the final product. It contains a sacred lake for priests as well. This post is part of a series chronically our time AmaWaterways Secrets of Egypt and the Nile. Here's the start of the series.
We continue our Secrets of Egypt & the Nile tour. Click here to catch up from the beginning. Today we are in Edfu Egypt. Once we depart the ship we take a horse a carriage ride to one of the best preserved Temples of Ancient Egypt, Edfu Temple, dedicated to the Falcon God Horus.
Today was our first full day in Cairo, having flown in yesterday from Amman. Here's our previous blog from Jordan. Cairo by day can be described as many things but snarled in traffic pretty much sums it up. Of the 20 million people making their residence here, it seems they are all on the road at the same time and place. Nevertheless, we were able to see two different things today with AmaWaterway's Cairo team, headed by our Cruise Manager Sami.

We begin today in Petra and end in the desert. This is our third day of our extension in Jordan as part of the AmaWaterways Secrets of the Nile & Egypt. Here's our first and second days if you want to catch up.
The Treasury of Petra. This was actually a tomb, but originally people thought it contained great treasurers of ancient civilizations.
