Abu Simbel Tour from Aswan

The two massive temples at Abu Simbel have looked out across the Nubian desert in Southern Egypt for over 3,200 years, reinforcing Egypt's status to it's neighbours since the reign of Ramesses II.

We'll begin our tour of Abu Simbel from Aswan in the morning, when your Egypt Excursions tour rep will pick you up in a comfortable, air-conditioned bus from your hotel in Aswan.

From Aswan you'll travel to the magnificent Temples of Abu Simbel, widely considered the masterpieces of the Ancient Egypt's New Kingdom. Built in a unqiue style, the two rock temples reflect the glory and grandeur associated with Egypt's New Kingdom, originally carved out of the mountainside during the reign of Pharoh Rameses II in the 13th Century BC as a lasting monument to himself and his queen Nefertari.

Generally considered the grandeset and most beautiful of the temples commissioned during the reign of Ramesses the Great, Abu Simbel has been deemed a UNESCO world heritage site.

Construction of the temple with it's four colossal statues of the pharaoh seated on a throne took around 20 years. Once past the famously impressive temple entrance, the temple follows a triangular pattern, with each room decreasing in size. Inside the temple you'll see intricate reliefs on the walls of battle scenes from the era, as well as many depictions of Ancient Egyptian gods.

Around mid-day, a delicious lunch will be provided at a local resturant. After a guided tour of the magnificent tempples of Abu Sumbel, you'll travel back to your hotel in Aswan in time for dinner.

Abu Simbel Tour from Aswan by road
We booked 4 tours in Aswan with Egypt Excursions and they were all very good from booking to the day. All the guides we had were really funny, happy people although it was very sad to hear how much they had been struggling over recent years with the trouble Egyptian tourism had been going through. Aswan temples are really huge, the entrance is completely humbling and its great to see an ancient monument that had been preserved so well. Quite a long journey to Abu Simbel but so worth it. Also the lunch provided was much better than expected.
