Aswan tours

Aswan is the 3rd largest city in Egypt, and the largest in Upper Egypt, it’s over looking at the foot of the Nile Valley to the North end of Lake Nasser. It is a major mining area for aluminum and iron as well as also being one of the favorite places for tourists to visit and enjoy by Aswan Tours, and as it is the major stop for cruise boats in the Nile River as well as the Lake Nasser. It was a major trade center with Nubia and the rest of Africa, During the Ptolemaic period, Aswan was chosen as the first capital of Upper Egypt due to its strategic location, and the Ptolemies used it as a base to enter Nubia.

Philae Temple

In Aswan day trips  you can visit the Royal Tombs of Aswan-Nobles built a necropolis of rock cut tombs on the high cliffs on the West bank of the Nile, you can also visit Aswan High Dam, unfinished obelisk, Philae Island and temple, and Elephantine Island.

First in our Aswan day tours move to enjoy by visiting the High Dam its construction began in 1960 and completed on 1970, the aim of this irrigation project was to prevent the river's flooding, generate electricity and provide water for agriculture. The floods of Nile River would make harm each year during summer to destroy many of monuments and make a difficulty in agriculture so the High Dam was built to control the flood waters to support agriculture in a high-water year.

Unfinished Obilesk

Then next day our representative will pick you up from the hotel to keep our Aswan excursions to visit Philae temple, it was begun by Ptolemy II and completed by the Roman Emperors. The Temple was dedicated to the goddess Isis, the wife of Osiris and mother of Horus. Isis is a very important figure in the ancient world.

Unfortunately Philae temple was nearly lost under water when the high Aswan dam was built in the 1960s. But fortunately the temple was rescued by dual operation between the Egyptian government and UNESCO, This whole project took 10 years and has saved one of Egypt’s most beautiful temples from obvious destruction.

High Dam

One of most Things to do in Aswan is to around in Unfinished Obelisk area, it was the project to build the massive obelisk but it was ultimately unsuccessful project and from this failure, scholars have learned much about how obelisks were made. During our Aswan excursions we can watch on the Unfinished Obelisk sides are two shafts where workers cut away the surrounding red granite. Later, artists would have carved or painted hieroglyphics onto the stone, showing the Pharaoh name in oval cartouches.

One of great Tours from Aswan to do is stare your eyes at the most two great temples in Upper Egypt Abu Simbel, they are two massive rock temples situated at a village in Nubia, southern Egypt, western bank of Lake Nasser, near the border with Sudan. The twin temples were originally carved out of the mountainside during the reign of Pharaoh Ramessis ii in the 13th century BC, as a lasting monument to himself and his queen Nefertari, to commemorate his victory at the Battle of Kadesh.

The construction of the temple complex started during 1264 BC and lasted for about 20 years, until 1244 BC. Egyptologists say that the design of Abu Simbel expresses a measure of ego and pride of Ramesses ii and survive his name through the history and also this temple save by UNESCO from the threaten of water in upper Egypt.

Aswan Felucca Ride 

In Aswan excursions the greatest event has made annually is the Miracle of Abu Simple where the sun spot its light in the face of Ramesses ii in his birth date time and this solar phenomena shows the amazing architecture creation of ancient Egyptian workers.
