A tour of Aswan’s iconic sites is a must-do for anyone visiting Egypt. This tour takes you to three of the most impressive landmarks in Aswan: the Philae Temple, the High Dam, and the Unfinished Obelisk.

The Philae Temple is a stunning temple complex located on an island in the Nile River. It was dedicated to the goddess Isis and is one of the best-preserved ancient temples in Egypt. The temple complex is surrounded by water, which adds to its beauty and mystical atmosphere. Visitors can explore the many temples, shrines, and courtyards, and marvel at the intricate carvings and hieroglyphics that adorn the walls.

The High Dam is another impressive feat of engineering that is a must-see in Aswan. The dam was built in the 1960s to control the flooding of the Nile River and to provide electricity to Egypt. The dam is over 3 kilometers long and 111 meters high, and it has had a profound impact on the economy and agriculture of Egypt. Visitors can walk across the top of the dam and enjoy panoramic views of the river and surrounding landscape.

The Unfinished Obelisk is an impressive sight that gives visitors a glimpse into the ancient methods of stone quarrying. The obelisk is over 40 meters long and was carved from a single piece of granite when it was abandoned due to a crack that appeared in the stone. Visitors can explore the quarry and see the tools and techniques that the ancient Egyptians used to carve the massive stones.

A tour of Aswan’s iconic sites is a perfect way to experience the rich history and culture of Egypt. With knowledgeable guides and plenty of opportunities for exploration and learning, this tour is sure to be a highlight of any trip to Egypt.
