Itinerary

Day1: Train from Luxor to Aswan sightseeing tour

A representative from Luxor and Aswan Travel will transfer you to the Luxor train station in the early morning so you can board the train to Aswan.

As soon as you arrive at Aswan Station, a Luxor and Aswan Travel tour guide will meet you there and accompany you to the island of Philae, which served as a major Isis worship site and attracted travelers from all over the ancient world. The great temples and monuments of Philae were taken out of the sea and rebuilt on a nearby island that has been given the name Philae. The original island is now entirely submerged beneath the waters of Lake Nasser.

Your next Aswan day tours will be the Aswan High Dam, an embankment dam built in Aswan between 1960 and 1971.The dam, which produces hydroelectricity, boosts the amount of agricultural water that can be stored, and controls flooding, was seen to be crucial to Egypt's desired modernization. Egypt's economy and culture have been severely impacted by the towering dam.

One of Egypt's most significant accomplishments from the previous century is the Aswan High Dam. It is made up of 18 times as much material as the huge pyramid of Cheops at Giza.

Visit the largest known antique obelisk, the unfinished obelisk, next. It is almost a third bigger than any obelisk from ancient Egypt that has ever been built. If completed, it would have been around 42 m (about 137 feet) long and nearly 1,090 metric tons (1,200 tons) in weight.
Enjoy a Felucca ride in the afternoon to the Agha Khan Mausoleum and the botanical garden (no admission from the Nile).

Your guide will drop you off at your accommodation following the tour. During the Night.

Day2: Abu Simbel Trip from Aswan

Early in the morning, you will be led by your tour guide to the most spectacular temples of Abu Simbel temples with their own style, including the largest rock cut temple in the world and ancient Egyptian masterpieces. They exemplify ancient Egypt's glory and grandeur. Ramses the second, the most powerful and famed monarch of ancient Egypt, the pharaoh also known as Ramses the great was the third of Egypt's 19th dynasty and ruled for 67 years in the 12th century BC.

The Egyptian government and UNESCO agreed to work together to save the monuments from the inundation.
The massive Ramses the Great rock temple was chiseled out of the rock during the construction of the Aswan high dam and afterwards relocated to a safe location.
The temple was built in such a way that the ancient sun miracle may be witnessed now. Once a year.
The sun's rays enter the temple and illuminate the sculptures of the gods and Ramses the Great.
Ramses 11's temple was dedicated to the four universal gods Ptah, Re-Hor-Akhty, Amun-Re, and Ramses himself.

The enormous Abu Simbel is known as Ramses 11's sun temple, and Queen Nefertari's temple is also known as the temple of Hathor, the sun god's wife. The two temples, Ramses 11 and Nefertari, symbolically unite Ramses and Nefertari, Hathor and the sun temple.
