After meeting with our representative at your hotel in Aswan, you will be taken to the airport for your flight to Abu Simbel.
You will visit two temples of Abu Simbel, with their unique style, which are considered the masterpieces of ancient Egypt. They reflect the glory and greatness of the new kingdom. The Egyptian government and UNESCO are working together to keep these temples from flooding.
The temple of Ramses II was dedicated to four gods: Ptah, Re-He-Aktey, Amon-Ra, and Ramses II himself. The great temple of Abu Simbel is also called the Temple of the Sun of Ramses II. The temple of Queen Nefertari is also called the Temple of Hathor, who was the wife of the sun god. In this way, symbolically, the two temples, Ramses II and Nefertari unite Ramses II, Nefertari, Hathor, and the sun god into one.
At the end of the tour, you will be transferred to Abu Simbel airport for your flight to Aswan, where you will return to your hotel.
