At 6:00 am we pick you up from your hotel or Nile Cruise in Luxor. Our guide will then transfer you by private A/C vehicle to Edfu City which is around an 1hr south of Luxor.

We visit Temple of Horus in Edfu - an ancient Egyptian temple located on the west bank of the Nile in the city of Edfu. It was known in Greco-Roman times as Apollonopolis Magna, after the chief god Horus-Apollo. It is one of the best preserved temples in Egypt.

The temple, dedicated to the falcon god Horus, was built in the Ptolemaic period between 237 and 57 BCE. The inscriptions on its walls provide important information on language, myth and religion during the Greco-Roman period in ancient Egypt.

After you are done with your visit to Edfu, you continue on to drive to Kom Ombo City.

Here you you will visit the Temple of Kom Ombo - an unusual double temple built during the Ptolemaic dynasty in the Egyptian town of Kom Ombo. Some additions to it were later made during the Roman period. The building is unique because its 'double' design meant that there were courts, halls, sanctuaries and rooms duplicated for two sets of gods.

The southern half of the temple was dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek, god of fertility and creator of the world with Hathor and Khonsu.

Continue the drive towards Aswan and transfer you to a local restaurant for the included lunch.

After lunch, you will be transferred to continue your day tour to Philae Temple - an island in Lake Nasser, Egypt. It was formerly an island in the First Cataract of the Nile River and the previous site of an ancient Egyptian temple complex in southern Egypt.

End your day tour with a visit to the High Dam that was constructed in 1961 by the then President of Egypt - Gamal Abdel Nasar.

Around 15:00 pm we transfer you back to your hotel in Luxor or in Aswan

Lauren's review for another EMO Tours tour
“Ibrahim was our tour guide and he was amazing, very nice and respectful, his English was perfect he went above and be on and we did everything we wanted to do and then some he really made our experience special he made us feel very comfortable, he was very knowledgeable about everything, from the pyramids and all the ancient ruins in the museums, even took us shopping and as we all know people can haggle you when at the pyramids and shopping around town, and he kept them all away which we extremely appreciated, and helped us translate when making purchases to ensure we got the best deal, he even took us out for refreshers and lunch at the end of the day !!! And extremely considerate he took a lot of very good pictures he was like a personal photographer, he did everything at our pace. We originally had booked him as our shuttle from the Cairo airport to our hotel when we first arrived in Egypt, he was on time to pick us up from the airport, He was waiting with our name and actually found us as soon as we walked out the door of the airport! he was also extremely punctual when picking us up from the hotel to start our tour and very accommodating considering we booked our tour on our ride from the airport to our hotel. Anytime in Cairo or the surrounding area I would definitely book him for any thing needed whether it be a tour or just an airport shuttle .”
