You will spend the next two nights of your 8 days Egypt Felucca Tour onboard a traditional Felucca River Nile cruise. So, we will transfer you to Cairo Airport to fly to Aswan to begin your 2-night Felucca Nile cruise.

Meet your guide just outside the arrival terminal at Aswan Airport to commence your tour. Explore the High Dam, one of the great engineering feats of the 1960s. Then proceed to the beautiful Philae Temple. This temple was built during the Greco-Roman era and it was dedicated to Isis, goddess of Magic and Love in ancient Egypt.

Day 4Camel Market

Breakfast and disembarkation. Venture to the famous Camel Market (every Saturday and Sunday). Daraw has one of the largest camel markets in Egypt. Most of the camels come in caravans from Sudan’s Darfur and Kordofan along the Darb Al Arba’een (Forty Days Road) to just north of Abu Simbel before being trucked to Daraw. It is a picturesque sight and fascinating to see the trading; sometimes there are as many as 2000 camels.

The emperors Domitian, Caracalla, and others added to the temple. So it took about 400 years to finish.

Travel from Kom Ombo to visit the most intact temple in Egypt, the Temple of Horus in Edfu. The temple is very intact, none of its elements are missing but the Sacred Lake and two obelisks. The Sacred Lake was on the east side of the temple but now vanished under the city’s modern houses. The two obelisks were located in front of the main gate of the temple. The Temple of Edfu is fully inscribed with reliefs and hieroglyphs on its exterior and interior walls.
