Full description
Spend a full day taking a guided tour of one of the most magnificent sites in Eygpt: the Abu Simbel temples. In the morning, your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel lobby in Aswan and take you to the airport. From there, head towards the most magnificent landscape of ancient Egypt. These massive rock reliefs are considered the grandest and most beautiful temples commissioned during Ramses’ reign, and some of the most beautiful in Egypt. This iconic site is situated on the western banks of the Nile and was dedicated to Ramses the Great and his queen Nefertari. Accompany your guide on an exploration of these temples and learn fascinating historical facts about the site, including the reason why they were dismantled and re-located in the 1960s.

Twice a year, a beautiful phenomenon takes place: witness the sun shining into the holy sanctum which lights up the colossal statues of Ptah, Amun, Ta, and Ramses. In the interior, discover 1000 years of temple arts, petroglyphs, and hieroglyphs. You’ll also explore the many other small and large temples located in the area.  

After you’ve taken in the magnificence of this site to the fullest, your guide will drop you off at the Abu Simbel Airport for your return to your accommodation in Aswan.
