Tour Details


    Our representative will collect you from your hotel and take you to explore the well-preserved Temple of Edfu, erected in the Ptolemaic Kingdom between 237 BC and 57 BC. Its walls are inscribed with texts that offer insight into language, mythology and religion during the Hellenistic period in Egypt; notably, the written records on its walls provide details of how it was constructed, as well as data on the mythical interpretation of this temple and all other temples as being an ‘Island of Creation’.

    We will then visit Kom Ombo to see a distinctive double temple dedicated to Sobek –the crocodile god– and Horus –the falcon-headed god– built during the Ptolemaic dynasty (180–47 BC), later modified during the Roman period.
    Lunch will be provided along with bottled water.
