What to Expect
Get to grips with one of the biggest feats of engineering in Egyptian history with a guided day tour of the Aswan Dam. Led by an expert guide, learn about the biggest building project in Egypt since the pyramids of Giza, and see some of the most important historical relics of the area.

After being collected from your hotel in Aswan, your driver will take you to the Aswan granite quarry where you can see the unfinished Obelisk on site. This is nearly one thirds bigger than any ancient Egyptian obelisk ever erected.

Afterwards proceed to visit the High Dam, crossing the old Aswan Dam along the way. The dam contains 43 million cubic meters of water, and boasts an impressive volume 17 times bigger than the pyramids at Giza. Your guide will explain to you the importance of the dam in post world war Egypt and the country’s modernization through the use of hydro energy.

End the day with a romantic motorboat trip to the Philae Temple to the Goddess Isis. The name Philae stems from the ancient Egyptian word Pilak meaning “the remote place”. The seclusion and serenity of the location provides a suitable end to the tour before heading back to your hotel in Aswan.
