Welcome to Aswan: Upon arrival into Aswan airport, you will be met by Misr Travel tour manager and transferred to your hotel by private air conditioned deluxe coach. Today you will visit mighty High Dam – a modern feat of engineering. Then you will go to explore the granite quarries and witness the largest known ancient Unfinished obelisk, still lies in its bedrock. This afternoon’s highlight is motorboat ride to Agilika Island for the awesome Philae temple. The temple was dismantled and relocated to avoid the flooding.
Late, in the afternoon, follow the footsteps of famed guests, like Margaret Thatcher, U.S. President Jimmy Carter and Queen Noor and take High tea in the old historic Cataract hotel. At midnight, depart by coach to the grand temples of Abu Simbel to witness the sun rays touch the temple gate signifying the start of the Sun festival of the mighty King Ramses II.
If you don’t like travelling by bus midnight, you can opt to take the journey by flight with one night accommodation in Abu Simbel hotel simbel instead of Aswan hotel.
Accommodation: Stay for 2 nights at Aswan Movenpick Resort
