    Stop At: Abu Simbel Temple Complex, Abu Simbel Egypt

    Depart Aswan to journey 280 kilometers to the stunning rock-carved temples of Abu Simbel. Relocated to the west banks of Lake Nasser, the temple complex is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the "Nubian Monuments."

    On arrival, take a short walk to the temple entrance, where your Egyptologist guide will explain the history of the site. Hear details of the UNESCO-led relocation of the entire cliff face to higher ground, and how the temples were only discovered by accident in 1813.

    Due to the large number of visitors, guides are not permitted inside the Great Temple of Ramses II or the smaller Temple of Hathor. However, by using photos and illustrations your guide will explain the structures and their interior artworks before giving you some free time to enter the temples and explore at leisure.

    As one of the few Ancient Egyptian sites that largely escaped damage from past invaders, the interiors of the Abu Simbel temples are astounding. The scale of the buildings and their detailed decorations leave most visitors in awe. The experience is further enhanced by the scenic location on the edge of Lake Nasser in the orange sands of the desert.

    After visiting the temples, benefit from some time for a short visit to the small visitor's center to see documents relating to the UNESCO relocation project (time permitting) before the drive back to Aswan Hotel or Nile Cruise

    You cannot beat the service of this agency. We booked the night before and got door to door service. Tiger was a great guide, as was Mona? The following day when I went to Philae. If you are on Aswan and need a trip, contact Michael. He won't let you down. Brilliant.

    This tour is not to be missed. While it is roughly a three hour drive to and from Aswan each way, it is well worth the journey. We chose exactly what time we wished to depart from Aswan and our guide, Big Mac, made it happen. Big Mac and two drivers arrived 10 minutes early. Two

    Our tour was fantastic! It was very easy from pickup to drop off. Our van was very comfortable for the long drive. Big Mac was very fun and entertaining! He was knowledgeable, informative, and made the day a delight. The temple was a must see and definitely worth the drive.
