Travel to Aswan for Nile Cruise

We leave for iconic Abu Simbel at 4am, to join the convoy of tourist buses on the 300km journey south.

Abu Simbel has two temples - for Ramses II and his beautiful wife Nefertari. These two temples were originally carved out of the mountain side during the reign of Pharaoh Ramesses II in the 13th century BC, however, after the construction of the Aswan dam in the 1960s, the monument was moved to its current location. It is a lasting monument to Ramses II and his Queen Nefertari, to commemorate his victory at the Battle of Kadesh.
