Abu Simbel by Minibus from Aswan
See two of Egypt’s greatest ancient spectacles on this private Abu Simbel day trip by minibus from Aswan. With a private Egyptologist guide, drive to western Lake Nasser, and behold the colossal, rock statues of Ramses II of the two iconic lakeside temples. Learn their history, and go inside to see their towering statues, pillars and murals. If time allows before your return to Aswan, check out the visitor center that charts how both the temples were relocated here, piece by piece, in 1968 to save them from flooding.
