HIGHLIGHTS
  • Visit Philae Temple in Aswan
  • Visit High Dam
  • Visit Unfinished Obelisk
  • Private Guided Tour
At 8:00 am our guide will pick you up from your hotel or from the airport in Aswan.

Enjoy a day tour in the amazing city of Aswan. Start your tour with a visit to the High Dam, an engineering miracle built in 1960 to protect Egypt from annual floods in the Nile.

Then proceed to visit the Unfinished Obelisk which shows the techniques used by the ancient Egyptians to cut obelisks. Most probably this obelisk belongs to Queen Hatshepsut, one of the rulers of the 18th Dynasty and the royal wife of king Tuthmosis II. The queen was the owner of her Temple in the eastern bank of Luxor. There is also another theory that the obelisk belonged to Queen Nefertiti.

Next we move on to visit the majestic Philae Temple which was built in honor of Goddess Isis, the chief deity of the island.

Later you will be transferred back to your hotel.

Edison's review for another EMO Tours tour
“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.”
