Day 1 Aswan City Tour
Welcome to Aswan! Our experienced English-speaking guide will pick you up at your hotel lobby with a warm greeting. Then, we will head out to start our Aswan holidays with visit to Aswan High Dams, a majestic hydropower project that effectively controls the water level of the Nile River. When you are wandering there, the High Dams seems like a winding wide road with endless fields surrounding, while fishing boats ripple the glistering water. Next, we will proceed to see the Egypt’s largest obelisk - the Unfinished Obelisk, which is still a complete stone tablet lying on the ground with rare carved relief and pattern. Most visitors choose to circle around it to appreciate its grandeur in full view. Afterwards we are going to uncover the mystery of the Temple of Philae, one of the three perfectly preserved Ptolemaic temples in ancient Egypt. The delicate frescos and murals inside the temple depict the life and story of god. Surprisingly, these exquisite cultural relics once faced the danger of disappearance due to the Nile. In 1980, the whole temple complex was moved here and rebuilt. When we finish the guided tour, you will be transferred back to your hotel with the assistance of our guide and have a good rest after arrival.
Day 2 Aswan - Abu Simbel - Aswan
In the morning, our enthusiastic guide will pick you up at the hotel and then head forward to Abu Simbel in an air-conditioned vehicle. Upon arrival, we will start our temple themed Aswan holidays with Abu Simbel Temple and the Temple of Hathor, which were all built during the reign of Pharaoh of Ramesses II, and are dedicated to himself and his wife – Queen Nefertiti, separately. The most renowned portion of this grand temple complex must be the gigantic seat statues of Ramesses II, which was built more than 3,000 years ago and turns to be the name card of Abu Simbel. Inside this huge cave temple complex, many exquisite relief carved patterns, stone columns, and images of gods can be clearly seen. Actually, it was once moved due to the construction of the Aswan High Dam. In addition, the temples are also dedicated to other gods and goddesses, and their daily life, whose legendary stories are detailed as depicted through the murals inside the temples. From these we have a better understanding about ancient Egypt and its culture. At the end of the day, we will drive back to Aswan and drop you off at your hotel, where we will end our Aswan tour. We sincerely wish you have an enjoyable journey in Aswan. Please feel free to contact us if you want to extend your journey in Egypt, and we will feel pleasurable to customize your itinerary according to your request and interest.
