Abu Simbel Day Tours – visit the famous temples by land

  • Private experienced tour guides (Egyptologists) and careful drivers
  • Private transportation and admission fees included – so no hidden extras

Ramesses II littered Egypt with monuments during his sixty-seven year reign. The Great Temple of Ramesses II and the smaller temple dedicated to his legendary wife Nefertari, are a testament to the glory and power of the ancient Egyptians. In 1968, both were dismantled and relocated to higher ground when threatened by rising waters due to the building of the High Dam. They are now a wonder of modern as well as ancient engineering.

Visiting the Temples of Abu Simbel, by land

The world-famous temples of Ramesses II and Queen Nefertari lie 280 km south of Aswan, overlooking Lake Nasser. Four colossal statues of Ramesses II dominate the façade of his great rock-cut temple, the most famous and ambitious of his architectural wonders. The nearby Temple of Hathor was also built by Ramesses II in honour of his Great Royal Wife, and favourite, Queen Nefertari. Abu Simbel can be reached by road from Aswan. You can travel to Abu Simbel at any time between sunrise and sunset. It will take you approximately three hours to get there and three hours back.
