Almost the first half of the day would be easily consumed here so you can spend your evening visiting the Egyptian Museum. This is one of the best places to visit in Egypt.
Day 2: Saqqara
Have a day trip towards the Saqqara and explore the 'step' pyramids. These pyramids flashback to the 27th century BC, an era just early to the great Giza monuments. The site is a bit complex where some of its walled complexes remain and the tombs de-flashback with a help of carved reliefs.
Day 3: Luxor
The highlights of Luxor that becomes mandatory to explore are the painted tombs of the Valley of the Kings and the Temple of Hapshetsut. Amid all such places, the best tombs are the Ramses I, VI, VII and IX, Amenhotep and Thutmose. Other destinations of the day that become musts to cover are the Karnak and Luxor temple. From here, board a Nile Cruise at night.
Day 4: Nile Cruise
The Nile Cruise would take you to Aswan via two mandatory stops. Basically, these are the stunning riverside sites i.e. the Temple of Horus at Edfu and the Temple of Sobek, the crocodile god. Visiting all such places on the cruise would consume your entire day 4.
Day 5: Aswan
Aswan is one of the most pleasant and green cities in the country. Perhaps, the city would take you on a complete day trip via the Temple of Philae which is located on the Lake Nasser's Agilika Island. Initially, the original island was on the Aswan High Dam but due to heavy floods, it had been shifted to the Lake Agilika. Still, this place is a hugely atmospheric site till date.

Reaching here would take you to the 2 most important places i.e. the Great Temple of Ra-Harakhte. This temple comprises of 4 giant statues of Ramses II.
