Our colleague will pick you up from your hotel or cruise boat and will escort you to Aswan Airport. Board your flight to Abu Simbel. There, our local guide will meet you and will take you to the temples of Ramses II and Nefertari.
The two temples were built by Ramses II (19th Dynasty), the larger one flanked by four colossi of the pharaoh, the smaller one with colossi of his wife Nefertari. Originally, the rock-cut temples overlooked a bend in the Nile and no doubt succeeded in their main purpose of impressing visitors from the south with Egypt’s might and power and scaring off raiding Nubians.
In 1965, as the waters of Lake Nasser threatened to overwhelm them, a huge operation was undertaken by UNESCO to save the temples, which were cut to be rebuilt block by block on an artificial hill, 210 m and 61 m higher than their original site.
After the visit, we will drive you to Abu Simbel Airport to take your flight to Aswan. Upon arrival in Aswan, our colleague will meet you at the airport and will drive you to your hotel or cruise boat.
