Visitig the High Dam and The Temple of Philae

 In the morning, our guide will escort you by air-conditioned ‎vehicle to the beautiful Aswan “About 3.30 hrs. Driving”. After reaching Aswan, your ‎tour guide will lead you to visit Aswan’s High Dam which is one of the most important ‎achievements of the last century in Egypt. It Contains 18 times the material used in the ‎great pyramid of Cheops and It provides Egypt with water and electricity and ‎secures the country from the destructive inundation of the Nile River. ‎ Then you will visit theTemple of Isisat Philae which its construction started during the ‎reign of Ptolemy II and completed by the Roman emperors.‎ And it was dedicated to the goddess Isis which was considered the mother of god and she ‎is the mother god Horus and the consort of God Osiris.‎

Visiting the Temples of Abu Simbel

At 4:00 am you will leave your hotel to go to Abu ‎Simbel to visit the location of the most famous temples (The Great and Small temples) ‎of King Ramses II and his wife Queen Nefertari. The most spectacular aspect of this ‎temple is its setting in the solid rock above the banks of the Nile River. The complex is ‎part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the “Nubian Monuments,” which ‎run from Abu Simbel downriver to Philae (near Aswan). It is believed that the axis of ‎the temple was positioned by the ancient Egyptian architects in such a way that on ‎October 22 and February 22, the rays of the sun would penetrate the sanctuary and ‎illuminate the sculptures on the back wall, except for the statue of Ptah, the god ‎connected with the Underworld, who always remained in the dark. These dates are ‎allegedly the king’s birthday and coronation day.‎
Then going back to Aswan around 1 pm, and proceeding by the air-conditioned vehicle ‎on our way back to Luxor. And stay overnight in your hotel in Luxor.‎
