What to Expect
Spend the day exploring the beautiful temples of Abu Simbel on a full-day tour from Aswan, and discover the full story of the site where Ramses II (1290-1223 BC) ordered the carving of 2 sun temples from the limestone mountains.

Originally cut into the side of the mountain, the original temple was constructed so that the rising sun shone between the statues of Ramses into the recesses of the sanctuary every February 22nd and October 22nd.

After the completion of the High Dam, UNESCO and the Egyptian government organized the temples be cut into blocks and moved piece-by-piece to a new position higher up the hillside.

Still one of the greatest attractions of Egyptian antiquity, the unique styles of the 2 temples will give you a greater insight into the glory and grandeur of Ancient Egypt, while an expert Egyptologist guide will provide a fascinating commentary of their history.
