Aswan Highlights Tour (Philae Temple, Unfinished Obelisk, High Dam)
See three of Aswan’s top sights over the course of a few hours on this private excursion. Board your private, air-conditioned vehicle at your hotel or Nile cruise and depart for the High Dam of Aswan, built-in 1960. Then it’s off to learn about ancient Egypt as you explore the Unfinished Obelisk and take a boat ride to the Philae Temple, dedicated to the Goddess Isis.
- Temple of Philae
This large temple complex, relocated to the island of Agilika with the building of the High Dam in Aswan, features the magnificent Temple of Isis that was built in the late Ptolemaic and early Roman periods.
- Unfinished Obelisk
This gigantic semi-finished obelisk, dating from the New Kingdom, would have weighed a staggering 1,197 tons if completed.
- Aswan High Dam
Supplying water and electricity to all of Egypt, this impressive two-mile dam was a 1960s feat of engineering.
