04 Days / 03 Nights Ex Aswan


Day 01 (Aswan):
•    Upon arrival Aswan, meet & assist and transfer to Nile cruise.  Embarkation will be after 12:00 noon. Lunch will be on the cruise board. At leisure till afternoon. And then, we will sail by traditional Nile Felucca along the shores of Elephantine Island. Tea & Coffee will be served in the early evening. Dinner and overnight will be on the cruise board.
•    Optional tour: Abu Simbel Temples either by private coach or by domestic flight.
•    Abu Simbel  temples are 300 km southwest of Aswan (about 300 km by road). 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).The twin temples were originally carved out of the mountainside during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II in the 13th century BC, as a lasting monument to himself and his queen  Nefertari, to commemorate his alleged victory at the Battle of Kadesh, and to intimidate his Nubian neighbors. However, the complex was relocated in its entirety in 1968, on an artificial hill made from a domed structure, high above the Aswan High Dam reservoir.


Day 02: (Aswan-Kom Ombo-Edfu)
•    Breakfast will be on the cruise board. In the  early morning, we will view the Aswan High Dam, an embankment dam situated across the Nile River in Aswan. And then we will visit the unfinished Obelisk, located in the northern region of the stone quarries of ancient Egypt in Aswan. Archaeologists are unsure which pharaoh created this structure. It is nearly one third  larger than any ancient Egyptian obelisk ever erected. If finished it would have measured around 42 m (approximately 137 feet) and would have weighed nearly 1,200 tons (1,066,621 kilograms). Continue to visit Philae Temple at Philae Island. Philae Island was a rocky island in the middle of the River Nile, south of Aswan. It was called in Hieroglyphic "Apo" which means Ivory. It was also known by the Greek "Elephantine",  most probably because it was an important center of trade, especially for ivory. The Ancient Egyptians built a beautiful and magnificent Temple on this island for the Goddess Isis, but the Temple became submerged after the first Aswan dam was built in 1906, and it was not until the seventies that many nations attempted to save the Temple. All these countries, together with UNESCO, selected a suitable place, but they had to wait until the completion of the High Dam, in 1971, which would stabilize the level of the water around their chosen island.Lunch  will be on the cruise board while sailing to Kom Ombo. In Kom Ombo, we will visit Sobek temple, the crocodile god, conveniently situated on the riverbank. And then we will sail to Edfu. Tea & Coffee will be served in the early evening.
