All about the trip
Join us on a tour to explore two of the most amazing temples in Abu Simbel.
The two temples of Abu Simbel are considered a masterpiece of ancient Egypt, reflecting the glory and grandeur of the New Kingdom. The Temple of Ramses II, called the Sun Temple, was dedicated to the four universal gods Ptah, Re-Her-Akhtey, Amun-Ra and to Ramses II himself. The Temple of Queen Nefertari is also called Temple of Hathor after the goddess who was the wife of the Sun God. In a symbolic way, the two temples bring Ramses II, Nefertari, Hathor, and the Sun God together as one.
The temples at Abu Simbel were formerly located further down the hillside, facing the Nile in the same relative positions but due to the rising waters of Lake Nasser, the original locations are underwater. In the 1960s, each temple was carefully sawed into numbered stone cubes, moved uphill and reassembled before the water rose.
After the tour, we will drive you back directly to your hotel in Aswan.
