Now you can visit Aswan and come back to Luxor in the same day.
Come with me for a visit to Aswan - one of the sunniest cities in Egypt, with a delightful beauty and a relaxed atmosphere. With a warm and dry climate, it's only 180 km south of Luxor, and has a more African ambience than any other city in Egypt. It has long been known as the "Gate of Africa", and much of its charms come from the River Nile and in Aswan is at its best.
Along the way, we'll visit Edfu, a friendly town which produces sugar and pottery.
We'll also visit Kom Ombo, which means 'City of Gold'. In ancient Egypt, the city was important to the caravan routes from Nubia and various gold mines.
After lunch in Aswan, we'll proceed to the Unfinished Obelisk and Philae Island and see the temples located on it.
The tour will start from any Luxor hotels, Nile cruises or apartement
*Start your tour driving towards Edfu city enjoying on the way the view of the cultivated lands and the river Nile.

Finally, we go to visit Philae Island using a motor boat and the temples located on it, like Isis and Hathor temples and Trojan kiosk (known locally the pharaohs bed).
