  • Day 1: Abu simbel

    Pass By: Abu Simbel Temple Complex, Abu Simbel, Abu Simbel Egypt
    It built on the west bank of the Nile River, between the first and second cataracts of the Nile, the site of Abu Simbel is one of the most recognizable ancient sites in Egypt. It contains two temples, carved into a mountainside, that were built by pharaoh Ramesses II (1303-1213 B.C).Abu Simbel today is no longer in the same location as it was in ancient times. “Following the decision to build a new High Dam at Aswan in the early 1960s, the temples were dismantled and relocated in 1968 on the desert plateau 64 meters (about 200 feet) above and 180 meters (600 feet) west of their original site .

    Pass By: Sound and Light Show - Abu Simbel, Abol-Hoal Square- Nazlet El-Semman, Abu Simbel 0097 Egypt
    The Sound and Light show at Abu Simbel will convey you to the time of the pharaohs. Enchanting you with melodious music, and bringing the ancient world to life around you, the show includes projections into the temples showing how they once looked. The program is presented in a number of languages with the provision of ear pieces. It is an experience not to be missed, one that will make your visit to Abu Simbel the memory of a lifetime.

    Day 2: Sail to Kasr Ibrim - Visit Amada - Sail to Wadi El Seboua

    Pass By: Lake Nasser, Egypt
    sail to Kasr Ibrim. View Kasr Ibrim from Sundeck , The Citadel Of Kasr Ibrim was once a formidable city high above the Nile River, but today it appears as an Island due to the construction of the Aswan High Dam.

    Pass By: Temple of Amada, 180 Kilometers South of the High Dam Lake Nasser Temples, Aswan Egypt
    Temple of Amada was originally built by Pharaoh Thutmose III who ruled during the 18thdynasty. When he died, his son, Amenhotep II took over, and during his reign he continued adding to the original temple and improving the temple's decorations. Later when Amenhotep died, his successor, Thutmose IV once again began to initiate a number of changes, including the addition of a roof to cover the original temple's open style forecourt.



    Pass By: Lake Nasser, Egypt
    you will visit the Temple of Derr , Ramssess II is certainly one of the most recognizable figures in Egyptian history because of his long and victorious reign, and the many temples and structures he built during this period. This makes the Temple of Derr a particular treasure due to its original position which was on the eastern shore of the Nile where very few other structures were placed, and also because it is a remarkably fine example of the pharaoh's preferred rock cut style.

    Pass By: Lake Nasser, Egypt
    you will visit the Tomb Of Pennut . If you follow a simple path that leads away from the two temples, you’ll soon find yourself coming face to face with one of the rarest sights in Egypt - a rock cut tomb belonging to a Viceroy of Kush. What makes this particular tomb so fascinating, is the fact that just like the temples nearby, it too was relocated from its original location in order to spare it from the flooding that was caused by the construction of the Aswan High Dam during the 1960s.

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    • Dinner
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 3: Visit Wadi El Seboua Temple's ; Sail to Aswan

    Pass By: Temple of Wadi El-Sebua, Abu Simbel Egypt
    Visiting Wadi El Seboua while you're touring Lake Nasser makes for an unforgettable experience since the area is home to a number of relocated ancient sites. Wadi El Seboua is now home to two "New Kingdom" temples, as well as the Temple of Dakka and the Temple of Maharraqua. Most visitors to the site want to explore all of these buildings and therefore they tend to dedicate a full day to the site. Many visitors begin with the famous "Valley of the Lions" which is a sphinx-lined avenue that leads to the older of the two " New Kingdom " structures. This is the temple which was built by Amenhotep III and dedicated to a Nubian version of the god, Horus. It is a rock cut temple, with a brick pylon that remains intact. The courtyard and main hall still exist to this day, and there are also some admirable paintings.

    Meals included:
    • Breakfast
    • Lunch
    • Dinner
    No accommodation included on this day.

    Day 4: Visit Kalabsha Temple

    Pass By: Kalabsha -Wadi Al Arab, Nasr, Aswan Governorate, Egypt
    It located within view of the High Dam, Kalabsha Temple is often the first stop for any cruise on Lake Nasser. It was moved to this spot from its originally location 30 miles to the south after the construction of the dam.Construction of the temple was begun at the end of the Ptolomaic Dynasty and actually completed under the rule of the Roman Emperor Augustus. The result is an interesting combination of imagery that includes Egyptian and Roman themes with images of Roman emperors and pharaohs worshipping with the Egyptian gods. The temple was dedicated to the Nubian god Mandulis.
