After the pyramids, Abu Simbel is one of Egypt’s most famous sites. The temple was built 3000 years ago to honor Ramses II and his wife, Queen Nefertari.
Four powerful figures of the pharaoh stand over 60 feet tall. This temple, which has remained nearly intact over the ages, was rescued from the rising water of Lake Nasser by a team of Unesco engineers, by cutting the entire structure, moving it stone by stone and reassembling it from 1964 to 1968. Abu Simbel is one of the worlds best traveled attractions and should not be missed. This excursion includes the return flight from Aswan through the facilities of Egyptair‘s modern fleet.
