Day 1 - Abu Simbel day Trip

Abu Simbel

On this excursion, you will visit the sublime temples of Abu Simbel located in the south of Egypt on the West Bank of Lake Nasser about 290 km Southwest of Aswan. 

This archaeological site consists of two temples one is called the great Abu Simbel or the Sun temple and belong to the great pharaoh Ramses II and the other belongs to his wife (Queen Nefertari). The statues of the king and his wife surround the smaller forms of princes, princesses and six columns. The inscriptions on the walls depict Nefertari in front of “Hathor” and portray (King Ramses) as a victor.

The guided tour will last around 2 hours, enough time to discover every nook and cranny of the temples, their history and anecdotes about them, like why they are still in perfect condition,
