See the highlights of Aswan in a one day tour. Our daily tours will take you to the High Dam, which created Lake Nasser, as well as the Unfinished Obelisk to see how ancient Egyptians cut these huge stone pillars, and finally Philae Temple, which is dedicated to the goddess Isis.
We will pick you up from your hotel or Nile cruise in Aswan and then you will enjoy a day tour in the amazing city Aswan. Start your tour by a visit to the High Dam, an engineering miracle built in 1960 protecting Egypt from the annual floods of the Nile. Then proceed to visit the Unfinished Obelisk which shows the techniques used by the ancient Egyptians to cut obelisks. Most probably this obelisk belongs to Queen Hatshepsut, one of the rulers of the 18th Dynasty and the royal wife of king Tuthmosis II. This queen was the owner of her Temple at the eastern bank of Luxor. Also there is an opinion which says that it belongs to Queen Nefertiti. Move on and visit the majestic Philae Temple which was built to the honor of Goddess Isis, the chief deity of the island. Later you will be transferred back to your hotel.
