Private Day Tour: Abu Simbel from Aswan

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Get an early start on the day with morning departure from your hotel in Aswan, and begin the drive to Abu Simbel in an air-conditioned vehicle. Watch the sun rise over the desert during the drive, which is just over three hours long, then make the first stop of the day at the rock-cut temples of King Ramses II.

    The temples, now listed as part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site, were moved piece by piece when the Aswan High Dam was built across the Nile River, creating Lake Nasser. You’ll see towering, monumental statues that represents great, ancient kings and queens, but look close and you’ll find Abu Simbel’s breathtaking detail, from playful baboons to intricate, carved walls.

    Continue to a nearby Nubian village, which is the perfect chance to see Nubian architecture, and learn about daily life in the harsh conditions of the Egyptian desert. After visiting the Nubian village, begin the return trip to Aswan, where you’ll finish the day with drop-off at your hotel in early afternoon.
