What You Can Expect
Enjoy the spectacular lights of the multimedia presentations which vividly reveals the form and majesty of this ancient site and walk through the dramatically lit temple as its history is narrated.
After the show your driver/guide will meet you at the gates of the complex to escort you back to your hotel. With your own private transportation on this tour, you will travel directly between your hotel or cruise ship and the Sound and Light Show without stopping to collect other passengers.
Although Aswan was quiet I was stunned that the entire sound and light show, including private transfer and boat crossing, was arranged for just the five in our party. Yes, that's right, the entire temple just for five interested travellers. If there is any doubt that the Egyptians are keen to regain their tourist trade then surely this must be it! An excellent show, better than the slightly garish effort at the pyramids, does intermingle myth and historical fact in its spiel but gives an insight into the history and development of this site, including to transfer to the island during the flooding from the formation of Lake Nasser. Don't miss it!
Excellent show and excellent guide!!
