What to Expect
Discover the temples of Edfu and Kom Ombo on a half-day sightseeing tour and learn about the Egyptian deities of Horus and Sobek.

Following a pick-up from your hotel in Luxor, drive by air-conditioned vehicle to the monumental Ptolemaic Temple of Horus, built in the reign of Cleopatra VII between 237 BCE and 57 BCE. Considered one of the best preserved constructions of Ancient Egypt, the sanstone temple was built in 3 stages.

Look at the inner paintings for clues about when the temple was built, and learn the story of Horus exacting revenge on Seth in the remarkable reliefs.

Continue to the Temple of Kom Ombo overlooking the Nile River. Kom Ombo means “City of Gold,” and it was an important stop on the caravan routes from Nubia to the gold mines of the Nile Valley. Marvel at its unique double design, with one half dedicated to the falcon-headed Haroeris, and the other to the crocodile-headed Sobek, god of fertility and creator of the world.
