Description

Take a day tour to the High Dam, an engineering miracle built in 1960 to protect Egypt from annual floods from the Nile. Then, you will head to the Unfinished Obelisk, which shows the techniques used by the ancient Egyptians to cut obelisks. This obelisk is believed to belong to Queen Hatshepsut, one of the rulers of the 18th dynasty and the royal wife of king Tuthmosis II, who owns Al Deir El-Bahari temple in the eastern bank of Luxor. However, others believe that it belongs to Queen Nefertiti. Your final stop is the majestic Philae Temple, which was built on the honor of goddess Isis the chief deity of the island.
