Fly to the Temple of the Sun
Located on the bank of Lake Nasser are two of Egypt’s most striking monuments: the two temples of Abu Simbel. Built by Ramses II more than 3000 years ago, these two temples have withstood the test of time. The fascinating story behind Abu Simbel includes how the entire complex was relocated to higher ground, as protection from rising water after the construction of the Aswan High Dam.
A tour to Abu Simbel by plane is ideal for those who prefer not to wake up early or to join a six-hour round-trip bus trip.
Instead, fly with us to Abu Simbel and make the trip to the two temples easy.
Our representative will pick you up from your hotel or cruise ship in Aswan, escort you to Aswan airport, and help you to check-in.
After your 55-minute flight to Abu Simbel, your tour-guide will wait for you, with your name on a sign, directly behind the exit gate. You will then drive to the temples.
The two Temples of Abu Simbel, unique in style, are considered Ancient Egyptian masterpieces, reflecting the grandeur and glory of the new Kingdom. As a result, the Egyptian government co-operated with UNESCO to rescue these temples when the dam was built.
After you’ve marveled at the two temples of Abu Simbel, your tour-guide will escort you back to the airport for your return flight to Aswan, where our representative will return you to you hotel or cruise ship.
