Explore The Iconic Temples of Ramasses II by Vehicle


Tour the most staggeringly impressive and intricate rock carvings Temples in the world, a place of wonder and excitement and should be a stop on any Egyptian itinerary. Located in the Southern part of the country, bordering on Sudan, the temples of the village of Abu Simbel have been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The temples are carved in to the mountainside in the 13th century BC and were dedicated to the reigning Pharaoh of the time - Ramses II and his wife Nefertari, catering to their egos as well as memorializing their power.

Itinerary

I will pick you up from your hotel or Nile Cruise in Aswan by a modern air-conditioned coach to enjoy a tour to Abu Simbel. The two Temples of Abu Simbel, with their unique style, are considered to be the masterpieces of ancient Egypt. They reflect the glory and grandeur of the new Kingdom. The Egyptian government and UNESCO decided to co-operate in order to save these temples from the flood. The Temple of Ramsses II was dedicated to the four universal gods Ptah, Re-Her-Akhtey, Amun-Re, and to Ramsses II himself. The great Abu Simbel temple is also called The Sun Temple of Ramssess II. The Temple of Queen Nefertari is also Called Temple of Hathor who was the wife of the Sun God so in a symbolic way, the two Temples, that of Ramsses II and that of Nefertari, bring Ramesses II, Nefertari, Hathor and the Sun God together as one. Later on, you will be escorted back from Abu Simbel to your hotel or Nile Cruise in Aswan.

A Recent Review of this tour

Five+ stars! Nahla was flexible with timing as we adjusted last minute for Abu Simbel. At the temples she provided thoughtful exposition about the temples, their notional meaning and their political and even personal overtones. Nahla is refreshingly plain spoken, considerate and thoughtful. We really enjoyed the conversation on the drive from Aswan. At the temples she provided pointers on little details in the reliefs that we would have missed. Such a great experience. Wish I could give 6 stars!
