1. Aswan: Philae Temple, The High Dam, the Unfinished Obelisk

Go on an excursion around Aswan's landmarks in one day, with a professional guide on this walking tour. Aswan marked ancient Egypt's southern frontier and is the point where the Nile is at its most majestic. After you get picked up from your hotel/hostel, your tour guide will take you to your first stop, Philae Temple. The temple is dedicated to the goddess Isis. It includes several shrines and sanctuaries that are thousands of years old. Your next stop will be The High Dam. The dam is considered to be the world's largest embankment dam with a reservoir capacity of 132km. From there, you will head to the Unfinished Obelisk. Inside one of the quarries of granite stone, it is thought that the female pharaoh Hatshepsut commissioned the work during the 18th dynasty. If carved out, it would have measured about 42 meters and has been lying there for more than 3,500 years. After visiting these iconic Pharaonic landmarks, you will get dropped off at your hotel/hostel.

What people are saying about Aswan High Dam

It was a great trip to the Philae Temple, and also interesting to see the dam, but the unfinished obelist was not mind-boggling.

Ruby is a wonderful guide, we had a dream time with her. We recommend it! Sincerely Valerie and Armelle
