From your hotel in Luxor to Aswan. Lunch at local restaurant in Aswan included.
Visit the majestic Philae Island. Temples of Philae were venerated from the Pharaonic era through the Greek, Roman, and Byzantine periods with each ruler making their own additions to the stones here. One of the temples was built on the honor of Goddess Isis.
Transfer to Hotel.
Day 2. Early morning, off to Abu Simbel, 280 kilometers south of Aswan.
The most magnificent of the monuments Ramses II built, Abu Simbel is both the perfect example of the ambition of this pharaoh's reign and also a model illustration for modern engineering. The entire temple was transplanted from its original location and lifted piece by piece to its current site by an international UNESCO team working against the clock to preserve it from being flooded by the Aswan High Dam in the 1960s.
After the visit, back to Luxor hotel.
Not included: dinner first day and lunch second day, entrance tickets, tips.
