Departing from Aswan or Luxor, drive along the banks of the River Nile to the towns of Kom Ombo and Edfu. Visit the imposing and well preserved Edfu Temple and the unique and beautiful Temple of Kom Ombo. A great Aswan day tour or Luxor day tour.
Please note: This tour can start from Aswan or Luxor.
Pick up from your Aswan or Luxor hotel. Following the River Nile passing through farmland and traditional villages you will drive to the city of Edfu to visit the Edfu Temple. Also known as the Temple of Horus, this is one of the best preserved temples in all of Egypt and the second largest after Karnak Temple in Luxor.
Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant before travelling towards Kom Ombo. Arriving at Kom Ombo, visit the unusual 'double design' temple which stands beside the River Nile. An interesting relief at the back of the temple shows a set of surgical instruments which are quite sophisticated for their time. Continue driving back to Aswan or Luxor. Transfer back to your hotel.
