Kom Ombo Tour from Aswan

Your friendly and knowledgable Egypt Excursions tour guide will pick you up around 9am from your hotel in Aswan ready in a comfortable air-conditioned mini bus and take you 50km north of Aswan to Kom Ombo.

Famous for it's magnicient temple built over 4,000 years ago in the 2nd century BC, Kom Ombo is now a agricultural town growing sugar cane and corn along the fertile banks of the Nile.

Our Kom Ombo tour from Aswan will take us to the Temple of Kom Ombo, unusual for its double design, Kom Ombo Temple has duplicated of each room (entrances, courts, halls, and sanctuaries) for the crocodile god Sobek and the god of fertility and creator of the world Hathor.

On your tour around this well-preserved temple you'll see colourful and intricate carvings on the walls, including carvings of ancient surgical intruments and hieroglyphics of the Ancient Egyptian calander. You'll also see clues to Egypt's rich history in the Temple, with additions built during Egypt's Roman Period as well as ancient graffiti from when the temple was used as a church by Copts around (400-800 A.D).

Being one-half dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek, 300 mummified crocodiles were found in the area, which are now shown in the crocodile museum.

Lunch

We'll break aroun mid-day for a delicious lunch at a local resturant.

Edfu Temple Tour

After discovering Kom Ombo we'll cross the Nile to Edfu, from where a horse-drawn carrige awaits you to take you to the majestic Temple of Edfu.

One of the best preserved temples in the whole of Egypt, the Temple of Edfu is dedicated to the chief god Horus. Built between 237 - 57 BC, the Temple of Edfu provides important information on the language, myths and religion of Egypt during the Greco-Roman period of ancient Egypt.

Built on the site of a previous smaller temple, Edfu temple's size shows the prosperity of the time in which it was built. As with many temples throughout Egypt, Edfu also shows signs of when non-Christian worship was banned throughout the Roman Empire, over the centuries the temple became buried beneath desert sand and layers of river silt to a depth of 12 meters. By 1798, only the very tops of the temples pylons were visible, and local inhabitents had by then built homes over the temples grounds.

In 1860 a French Egyptologist began the work of freeing Edfu temple from the sands which had over the many hundereds of years slowly buried it. Today Edfu Temple is virtually completely intact, and considered extremely archeologically significant due to its high state of preservation.

Your tour guide will show you around this magnificent temple before returning to your hotel in Aswan.
