Early in the morning, your Egyptologist tour guide will pick you up and transfer to Abu Simbel (almost 3 hours’ drive). Upon your arrival, your tour guide will explain to you the story of the two magnificent temples. Afterwards, take time to marvel at the exquisite detail as you wander through the temples yourself. The two massive rock-cut temples of Abu Simbel are considered to be the masterpieces of ancient Egypt.
The great Temple of Ramsses II was dedicated to the four universal gods Amun-re, Ra-Horakhty, and Ptah, as well as to the deified Ramesses II himself. The temple is also called the sun Temple of Ramsses II.
The Small Temple was dedicated to the goddess Hathor and Ramesses II’s chief consort, Nefertari is also called Temple of Hathor who was the wife of the Sun God.
The complex was relocated in its entirety in 1968 on an artificial hill made from a domed structure. The relocation of the temples was necessary or they would have been submerged during the creation of Lake Nasser, formed after the building of the Aswan High Dam on the River Nile. After finished, transfer back to your hotel in Aswan and free time to relax
Breakfast at your hotel and then you will visit the unfinished obelisk located in the northern region of the stone quarries of ancient Egypt. The unfinished obelisk, never completed due to a flaw discovered in the stone. If finished it would have been the largest and heaviest obelisk ever attempted, 42 metres long and weighing more than 1200 Tons. The unfinished obelisk offers unusual insights into ancient Egyptian stone-working techniques.
Proceed to visit the Aswan high Dam, the world’s largest embankment dam built across the River Nile between 1960 and 1970, to control the Nile flood, provide increased water storage for irrigation and generate hydroelectricity.
Enjoy a motorboat short ride to the beautiful Philae Temple complex, originally situated on the island of Philae. You will explore the three principal monuments on the island all date from the Pharaonic, Ptolemaic and Roman periods, the temple of Nectanebo II, the temple of Isis, the Temple of Hathor and the Kiosk of Trajan.
After finished, you will be transferred to your hotel in Luxor (almost 04 hours’ drive). Arrive to Luxor, check in your hotel and overnight

Move on to the Valley of the Kings, the burial site of almost all the kings (pharaohs) of the 18th, 19th, and 20th dynasties (1539–1075 BC), from Thutmose I to Ramses X. You will visit three rock cut tombs of the richly decorated with reliefs and paintings. Your tour guide will explain the history and legends of these remarkable people, and the significance of the many paintings and hieroglyphics.
Proceed to the Temple of Queen Hatshepsut, which is considered by historians to have been one of the most successful rulers of ancient Egypt. Both the setting and the construction of her temple make it unique among the landmarks of Egypt.
Later on, you will proceed with your Luxor tour to visit the east bank of the Nile. You will visit Karnak Temple, the largest religious building in Egypt. Entering the temple through the sphinx avenue, built by Ramesses II, you come to the immense pylon entrance. Walk in to the huge Courtyard are three chapels dedicated to the gods Amun, Mut and Khonsu. Entering the remarkable Hypostyle Hall with 134 towering columns, each carved with scenes of gods and pharaohs, and hieroglyphic inscriptions adorn the outer walls.
Continue to Luxor temple, enter the temple through the great pylon with two enormous statues of Ramses II still stand, along with a pink granite obelisk (its mate stands in the Place de la Concorde in Paris, France). Continue on to an enormous interior courtyard, where the Abu Haggag Mosque once stood atop the ruins of the temple. You can still see a ghostly remnant of the mosque on the east side of the courtyard, high above the columns, its arched doorway opening into thin air.
Later on you will be transferred to Luxor Airport for final departure. Your flight has to be after 17:00 to be able to do this tour.
