Embark on a wonderful journey filled with sightseeing activities that will take you to Aswan attractions and beyond to Nubia, where you will marvel at the temples of Abu Simbel. Your itinerary includes a visit to the High Dam, the Temple of Goddess Isis on Philae Island, the Unfinished Obelisk of Hatshepsut, and the temples of Ramses II.

You will also visit Abu Simbel, Ramses, the Second most great work, and the Temple of the Queen Nefertari.

On day one, we will pick you up from your Hurghada hotel or Port Ghalib Hotels at 5:00 am sharp and start the journey to Aswan by private vehicle, which takes approximately four hours. You will visit the High Dam, Phiala temple, and the Unfinished Obelisk and enjoy sailing on the Nile with Egyptians Felucca.

The Phiala temple was built to honour the goddess Isis and is the last temple built in the classical Egyptian style. The High Dam, on the other hand, is a rock-fill dam located at the northern border between Egypt and Sudan. Fed by the River Nile, the reservoir forms Lake Nasser. Construction for the project began in 1960 and was completed in 1968.

The unfinished obelisk in Aswan is the source of ancient Egypt’s finest granite used to make statues and embellish temples, pyramids, and obelisks. The large unfinished obelisk in the Northern Quarries has provided valuable insight into how these monuments were created.

You will spend the night in Aswan in Basma Hotel. You can also opt for a trip to the Nubian village, which is one of Aswan’s attractions. It’s worth visiting and spending 2 hours as it’s a very authentic and genuine place. It’s colourful and artistic, and you will straight away feel the soul of this place.

On day two, we will pick you up from your hotel in Aswan at 4:00 am and travel by air-conditioned vehicle from Aswan to Abu Simbel, which takes approximately three hours of driving before the heat of the day. The two temples were carved out of the mountainside during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II in the 13th century BC.

Upon arrival, an Egyptologist guide will tell you all about one of the greatest and most whimsical pharaohs in Egyptian history. You will marvel at the main façade of the Great Temple to Ramesses II and its four statues of the pharaoh seated on his throne following his advancing age. The main temple is dedicated to Amon-Re Horakhty and Ptah, but it was constructed for the greater glory of its builder, Ramses the Great. You will continue to the smaller temple of Ramesses’ consort, Queen Nefertari, situated right next to the Great Temple. Admire the impressive rock-cut façade depicting the pharaoh and his queen. Re-board the coach at 9:00 for the return transfer to Aswan before lunch, which will be served in Aswan before your drive back to Hurghada.
