Visit the massive Abu Simbel temple complex on this full-day private tour from Aswan City! A iconic reminder of the legacy of Ramesses II, these two temples are among Egypt's best-known archeological sites and tourist attractions.
As one of Egypt's most famous and historically significant archeological sites, the Abu Simbel temple complex, which consists of two larger-than-life rock temples, is a must-visit. Don't miss the chance to visit this complex on this private tour that includes round-trip transfer between Aswan and Abu Simbel! Your guide, a qualified Egyptologist, will tell you all you need to know about these temples: their history, the deities they are devoted to, and how they were moved in the 1960s — an impressive feat at the time — to avoid being flooded by the Aswan Dam. It's thanks to this relocation effort that visitors today are able to explore this ancient Egyptian treasure. You'll have ample time to look around the temple complex at your own pace, so take the opportunity to appreciate this massive architectural feat and work of art — a symbol of Ramesses II's legacy.
