Enjoy your Trip to Abu Simbel. Memphis Tours representative will pick you up from your hotel in Aswan by a modern air-conditioned coach to enjoy a small group tour to Abu Simbel. It is about 03 hours and a half, a one-way drive from Aswan 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 cooperate 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 Ramesses II. The Temple of Queen Nefertari is also called the 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 in Aswan.
The tour includes lunch at a local restaurant.
We went on a tour from Cairo to Abu Simbel and then on a Nile cruise from Aswan to Luxor with Memphis tours. They organized our flights from Cairo and the cruise. The guide was excellent.
We felt very safe on the tour. Egypt is a bit crazy right now, but the tours are a great deal since very few tourists are going there. The river cruise ship we went on was the Alyssa. It was very comfortable and had very good food.
