Over the course of these two days, we’ll see some of Aswan’s most famous and bizarre attractions.
We’ll go to locations you’ve heard of, but also ones you’ve never heard of before.
You’ll discover an intriguing excursion closer to adventure in these gorgeous sites that are hidden from view and that few people have visited before.
The High Dam was the most important building in Egypt in the twentieth century.
As it was the main source of electricity generation in Egypt, it also preserved the wasted water of the Nile due to the floods and formed the largest artificial lake in the world, Lake Nasser.
After that, we will go together to the Philae temple, which is located in the middle of the water, so we will go to this temple by a motorboat to enjoy a Nile drifting to the Philae temple, which was saved from the flood before the construction of the High Dam.
The Monastery of St. Simeon is one of Egypt's most important Christian sites.
This monastery, which retains several old inscriptions and paintings of monks, was a shelter for many monks during the beginning of the introduction of Christianity in Egypt.
We will then have lunch at a fantastic Nile restaurant.
And now head to see the beautiful green spaces and the most beautiful flowers on the island of plants.
With its gorgeous and unusual trees and flowers, this garden is one of the world's oldest.
This garden has a botanical and indigo biology museum.
Where did the ancient Egyptians get the granite they used in their temples and pyramids?
The island of Suhail is home to a quarry that produces the distinctive black granite used in ancient Egyptian statues, temples, and tombs.
There is a remarkable etched stone that talks of the years of famine that Egypt faced during King Djoser's reign.
We will also visit the tombs of ancient Egyptian nobles and priests in the Qubbet El-Hawa region today. These are separate tombs comprised of chambers cut into the rock and embellished with magnificent artwork and inscriptions.
The Aga Khan's tomb will be on the other side of the river.
The monument was built in 1957 to honor Sultan Muhammad Shah, the third Aga Khan, but even after his death, his widow continues to lay a red rose on his tomb every day as a token of her devotion to him.
In order to carry on her wife's custom, the gardener continued to plant a red rose every day after she died.
We'll have lunch before traveling to the Aswan Souvenir Market after this fascinating journey.
As you stroll around the souvenir shops, you may pick up some inexpensive presents for yourself and your loved ones.
