Day 1.

  • After a domestic flight to Aswan, you drive with private air-conditioned transportation on a 3 to 4-hour desert trip to the southernmost archaeological site, the Nubian Monuments of Abu Simbel, where you visit the temples, commissioned by Ramses II for himself and his most beloved wife, the Nubian Queen Nefertari.

  • After lunch, you visit the Karnak Temple where Pharaohs like Tutankhamun, Hatshepsut and Ramses II performed their sacred rituals. The Karnak Temple complex contains holy lakes, hypostyle halls, obelisks, pylons and shrines.
