Very worthwhile trip to the somewhat remote but not so crowded temples in Dendera and Abylos. impressive colored reliefs and monumental column architecture. The famous king list of Abyllos, the Zoddiac blanket. Definitely highly recommended despite the long journey. Our guide was also an archaeologist with a wealth of knowledge which he was happy to share. Thanks for this experience!🙋‍♂️
