Itinerary

Day 1: Day 1-El Gouna- Aswan

Pass By: Aswan Market, Aswan Egypt
Early in the Morning at 05:00 am You will be picked up from El Gouna hotel or Port Ghalib Hotels to Aswan by Private vehicle, It takes 6 hours driving.

You will visit the High dam, Phiala temple, the Unfinished Obelisk and Enjoy sailing on the Nile with Egyptians Felucca

>Phiala temple

Built to honor the goddess Isis, this was the last temple built in the classical Egyptian style. Construction began around 690 BC, and it was one of the last outposts where the goddess was worshipped.

>The High Dam

Aswan High Dam is a rock-fill dam located at the northern border between Egypt and Sudan. The dam is fed by the River Nile and the reservoir forms Lake Nasser. Construction for the project began in 1960 and was completed in 1968. It was officially inaugurated in 1971.

>The Unfinished Obelisk

Aswan was the source of ancient Egypt’s finest granite, used to make statues and embellish temples, pyramids, and obelisks. The large unfinished obelisk in the Northern Quarries has provided valuable insight into how these monuments were created, although the full construction process is still not entirely clear. Three sides of the shaft, nearly 42m long, were completed except for the inscriptions. At 1168 tonnes, the completed obelisk would have been the single heaviest piece of stone the Egyptians ever fashioned.

Day 2-Aswan-Abu Simbel- El Gouna  

An early pick-up from your hotel in Aswan at 04: 00, travel by air-conditioned vehicle from Aswan to Abu Simbel, It takes 3 hours driving to the temples of Abu Simbel before the heat of the day.

The temples of Abu Simbel

The temple two temples were Carved out of the mountainside during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II in the 13th century BC, the Abu Simbel temple complex

Upon arrival, an Egyptologist guide will tell you all about one of the greatest and most whimsical pharaohs in Egyptian history. Marvel at the main façade of the Great Temple to Ramesses II and its 4 statues of the pharaoh seated on his throne following his advancing age. 

In theory, the main temple is dedicated to Amon-Re Horakhty and Ptah, but in practice, it was constructed for the greater glory of its builder, Ramses the Great. Continue to the smaller temple of Ramesses' consort, Queen Nefertari, situated right next to the Great Temple. Admire the impressive rock-cut façade depicting the pharaoh and his queen.
