Hurghada to Aswan - Nubian Heritage Tour - overnight (Aswan High Dam-Nubian Museum-Nubian Village-Abu Simbel)

Sign up and dive into the Nubian Heritage in Upper Egypt. The Nubian civilization dates back at least 10,000 years from the Neolithic era and ruled Egypt for 100 years during the 25th Dynasty as the Kingdom of Kush. Ramses the Great built his Nubian Monuments of Abu Simbel and dedicated one of the temples to his Nubian wife, Queen Nefertari. Though divided between the south of Egypt and northern Sudan, the Nubian culture survived. Visit the archaeological remains, the Nubian Museum and enjoy a modern day Nubian Village.

Day - 1

  • You drive south from Hurghada through desert and past picturesque villages to Aswan with private air-conditioned transportation.
  • The tour starts with a visit to the Aswan High Dam, the long studied solution to control the flooding of the Nile. A construction that forced the displacement and relocation of the Nubian population.
  • During your visit to the Nubian Museum, you learn about the Nubian history from pre-historic times and the Pharaonic period to Coptic and Islamic influence.
  • After lunch in a good local restaurant (drinks not included), you board a motorboat to one of the modern day Nubian Villages along the Nile where Nubian culture, language, music and literature is kept alive. You experience at first hand that the Nubian culture survived throughout the ages. Encounter the people, admire the colorful houses and shop for the handmade artefacts, clothes and souvenirs.
  • You will spend the night at an Aswan Luxury 4* to 5* Hotel.

Day - 2

  • An early rise (03.00 AM), check out and a 3 to 4-hour desert trip brings you to the southernmost archaeological site The Nubian Monuments of Abu Simbel where you visit the temples, commissioned by Ramses II for himself and his most beloved wife, the Nubian Queen Nefertari. Like the Nubian population, the temples were relocated in the 1960s due to the construction of the High Dam and the creation of the reservoir, Lake Nasser.
  • You drive back north over Aswan to your accommodation in Hurghada.
