From Aswan: Private Tour to Abu Simbel
Visit the rock-cut temples of Abu Simbel and learn more about their unique architectural style on a private tour from Aswan. Explore the remains of the sanctuary with an English-speaking Egyptologist guide.
Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Aswan, and then journey across the desert by private, air-conditioned vehicle in the cooler temperature of the morning.
Make your way to Abu Simbel to see the Great Temple of Ramses II and the temple of Queen Nefertari, both discovered in 1813 when they were almost completely covered with sand. Learn how they were moved in 1960 with the help of the government of Egypt and UNESCO to avoid the rising waters of the River Nile.
See the mural depicting the famous victory by Ramses II at the Battle of Qadesh and admire the Small Temple that he built for his favorite wife, Queen Nefertari. Marvel at the rock-cut sanctuary and its amazing bas reliefs before returning to Aswan to get dropped off at your hotel.
