Enjoy the High Dam, Unfinished Obelisk & Philae Tours, which are the most famous sights in Aswan. In only one day you will visit the High Dam, which was built in 1960 to protect Egypt from the dangerous floods of the Nile, the Unfinished Obelisk, which dates back to the era of the Pharaoh Hatshepsut, and the Beautiful Temple of Philae which is located on an Island in the Nile.
A My Great Egypt Tours Representative will pick you up from your hotel where you will meet your Egyptologist guide. We will start your amazing “day tour” visiting the famous sights of Aswan. We will first travel, by private vehicle with A/C, to the High Dam, which was built in the period of President Nasser to protect Egypt from the dangerous Nile floods. We will then proceed to the Temple of Philae where you will cross the Nile by boat to reach the temple. Lunch will be served at a local restaurant featuring some of the unique Egyptian style cuisine. Next we will continue the tour to visit the Unfinished Obelisk, which archaeologists suggest that the Queen Hatshepsut ordered it to be built to celebrate her sixteenth year in power. Finally we will enjoy a felucca trip (local boat with music) on the Nile for a relaxing view of the area. After your journey you will be safely returned to your hotel.
