To visit the wonders of Aswan, take a Friday cruise. The four-night journey will include stops at the famed temples of Amada, Derr, and Penout's tomb. Egypt Promotion provides a number of cruises, including the Nubian Sea Lake Nasser Cruise and the Dahabiya Cruise Boat.
One of the monuments worth seeing on Aswan day tours is the Temple of Kalabsha. It is situated on a hill near the High Dam site on the Nile's Western Bank, approximately 40 miles south of Aswan. Toutmosis II and Amenophis II erected this temple, which was later rebuilt during the Roman Empire.
Wadi El Seboua temple: Following Kalapsha temple, this will be your second stop on your Egypt tours itinerary.
Kasr Ibrim: this is similar to a museum since it houses the biggest collection of old Nubian papers ever discovered. The island was occupied until 1813 and is now closed due to cannon fire. You will pass it while on Nubian Sea Lake Nasser Cruises, and it will be an excellent opportunity to get to know him.
The Temple of Amada is Nubia's earliest Egyptian temple, built by Pharaoh Thutmose III of the 18th dynasty and dedicated to Amun and Re-Horakhty. Amenhotep II, his son, and successor completed the decorating effort for this edifice.
Abu Simbel Temples: The most popular temple in Aswan that you will visit through Egypt Nile cruises as it overlooks the Nile River. This is located on the western bank of Lake Nasser & it’s about 230 km southwest of Aswan near the border with Sudan.
It’s a set of two temples, it was constructed for the pharaoh “Ramses II” and the other for his own beautiful wife “Nefertari”. It was built in 1255 BC & it was rediscovered two hundred years ago.
The larger temple is dedicated to three major Egyptian goddesses & features four large statues of Ramses II on its facade, while the smaller temple is dedicated to the love goddess Hathor, with statues designed for his beloved wife Nefertari.Read more...
