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

“It was a very nice and lovely experience on Felucca trip. The guide was super puntual and very kind we saw the sunset and enjoyed the view. It was very relaxing escaping the noise of the city without going very far from it.”
