Train Number 996 departs Luxor at 17:20
Upon arrival in Aswan you will be met at the station by our representative who will display a sign with your name. You will be accompanied to your hotel in Aswan and assisted with the check-in for your overnight stay*. The rest of the day can be spent at leisure to explore Aswan or just relax.
Day 2: Luxor (Breakfast)
We'll start early around 3:15 to travel to Abu Simbel, where you will visit the two Temples of Ramses II. The Temples at Abu Simbel are among the most magnificent monuments in the world, and their removal and reconstruction was an historic event in itself.
When the temples (280 KM from Aswan) were threatened by submersion in Lake Nasser due to the construction of the Aswan High Dam, the Egyptian government secured the support of UNESCO and launched a world wide appeal to save these important monuments.
Return to Aswan and take the afternoon train to Luxor where you will once again be met and transferred to your hotel.
