What You Can Expect

Temples of King Ramses II and Queen Nefertari with Flight from Aswan

Abu Simbel temple

Start with pickup at your hotel or cruise boat in Aswan, then transfer to the Aswan airport to catch a 1-hour flight to Abu Simbel on EgyptAir. A driver will meet you at the airport for transfer to the archeological site, where you’ll begin a 1.5-hour guided tour.

Stand at the foot of the monumental statues that tower 60 feet (18.3 meters) above the sand, and learn the story of how a UNESCO team moved the structures block by block when a dam flooded their original site. Construction of the Abu Simbel Temple Complex began more than two millennia ago, then was lost beneath the sand until the early 19th century. Following the 1.5-hour guided tour, take 2.5 hours to keep exploring: follow the carved inscriptions through the temple interiors, photograph the changing desert light, or simply enjoy the ancient atmosphere of the remarkable site.

Meet back up for the trip back to the airport, catch a flight back to Aswan, and meet a driver upon arrival. This tour concludes with drop-off at your hotel or cruise boat in Aswan.

A full day with the flight- but what a day! fabulous archaeological history to absorb, but our guide was patient, answered all our questions with amazing clarity and was so knowledgeable. The temples were everything we imagined, and then some!
