In the morning you will be picked up from your Luxor hotel and you will drive to Aswan in about 4 hours, taking the road on the East Bank of the Nile. During the drive you can enjoy the sights of Egyptian villages, the Nile, farms and fields.
When approaching Aswan you will have a light lunch on the way before starting your day tour. After finishing lunch and arrival in Aswan you will first visit the High Dam, an engineering miracle used as an embankment dam situated across the Nile River, built in the 1960’s to protect Egypt from annual floods. After this visit you will take a boat trip to the Temple of Philae. This temple was built in honor of goddess Isis, the chief deity of the island the temple was built on. It is considered by many to be one of the most beautiful temples in Egypt. After this visit you will go to a Nubian village called Gharb Soheil. It used to be a fishing village and the locals thought of the idea of making their village into an open-air museum to display the traditional Nubian life and culture. Here you will see lots of bright colored houses and meet kind people. You also visit a family home to enjoy the Nubian hospitality and to have a closer look at the local life and culture.
At every site you will get information from your Egyptologist tour guide and you will get free time to explore the sites by yourself.
After touring the sites you will be transferred to your hotel.
