Day 1: Aswan Attractions Tour
Starting your Aswan & Abu Simbel tours from Marsa Alam in the morning, a modern private A.C. car will pick you up from your accommodation and drive you to Aswan. Upon arrival, you will join your Egyptologist tour guide for an exploration of Ancient Egyptian Civilization in Aswan, which will include visits to the following tourist attractions:
High Dam of Aswan
The Unfinished Obelisk
The old world’s largest obelisk. Hatshepsut (1508-1458 BC) commissioned it to accompany the Lateran Obelisk (which was initially located at Karnak and later moved to the Lateran Palace in Rome).
Temple of Philae
The goddess Isis of Love and Beauty is honored in this shrine. As part of the UNESCO Nubia Campaign initiative, the temple complex was deconstructed and transported to neighboring Agilkia Island, safeguarding it and other monuments before the Aswan High Dam was completed in 1970.
After that, you’ll have a fantastic lunch before checking into a 5* hotel in Aswan.
Day 2: Visit Abu Simbel and return to Marsa Alam
Get your breakfast box from your accommodation early in the morning, then accompany your private tour guide for a visit to Abu Simbel:-
Temples of Abu Simbel
The two Temples of Abu Simbel are regarded marvels of ancient Egypt because of their unique style. They are a reflection of Egypt’s new Kingdom’s glory and magnificence. Abu Simbel is home to two huge rock temples. The twin temples were cut out of the mountainside during King Ramses II’s reign in the 13th century BC as a permanent memorial to himself and his Queen Nefertari for their victory at the Battle of Kadesh.
