Day One: Pick up from Luxor and Tour the Highlights of Aswan
You will be picked up by our organization from your hotel in Luxor and driven to Aswan in a private air-conditioned car. When you arrive, your knowledgeable tour guide will accompany you as you see the city’s top historical landmarks, which include the following:
High Dam at Aswan
The Aswan High Dam represents Egypt’s first foray into the modern industrial era. The history of the High Dam’s construction dates back to President Gamal Abd El Nasser’s time in office. The dam was constructed in the ninth century, however, under the Fatimid Caliph Al-Hakim Bi Amar Allah’s rule.
The Unfinished Obelisk
It is a 3,500-year-old monument honoring Queen Hatshepsut’s rule during the 18th dynasty that resembles a sleeping giant granite edifice. The monument was abandoned after some fractures showed in the rocks. According to some historians, the obelisk would have been 42 meters long and 1,200 tonnes in weight if it had been completed.
Temple of Philae
One of the most stunning temples along the Nile is the Philae Temple, which Ptolemy II began and the Romans completed. The goddess Isis, who is a highly famous character and was regarded as the source of life since she raised Osiris to life and gave birth to Horus, is the subject of the Philae Temple.
After serving you a delicious lunch at a restaurant with a Nile view, we take you to the 5* hotel where you will spend the night.
Day 2: Tour the Abu Simbel Temples and return to Luxor
Breakfast boxes should be had first thing in the morning before you join your personal Egyptologist, who will drive you in a private A/C car to see:
Abu Simbel Temples
Ramses II built the Temples of Abu Simbel, one of the most impressive ancient structures in Egypt, in the country’s far southernmost region. There are two nearby temples at the location that were carved out of sandstone cliffs. The main temple, however, is devoted to the pharaoh himself, and its entry is made up of four enormous sculptures that are paired off (each statue measure 20 meters high). Twice a year, the four sitting statues of Amun Ra, Ptah, Re Horakhty, and Ramses II may receive sunlight because of the temple’s location.
Your overnight journey to Aswan and Abu Simbel from Luxor will come to an end as you are taken back to Aswan for lunch at a reputable restaurant, followed by further driving to Luxor and a transfer to your hotel.
