Journey across Aswan with Your Egypt Tours and visit the High Dam and Unfinished Obelisk. Your personal Egyptologist guide will accompany you and provide you with a rich background of these engineering wonders. Determine the amount of time you would like to spend at each site during this private tour.
Depart from your hotel or cruise ship and travel to the High Dam of Aswan. This world-famous High Dam provides electricity for the region while regulating the flooding of the Nile. The construction of the High Dam consists of more material than that used in the Great Pyramids of Cheops.
Continue to the Unfinished Obelisk found in the granite quarries of Aswan. This fascinating obelisk still lies where it was carved. Your qualified Egyptologist guide will explain how the 1-tonne obelisk was carved and why the crack discovered caused it to be abandoned.
At the end of your tour, transfer back to your hotel or cruise ship for a relaxing evening.

You will need to spend 2-3 days in Aswan to see the main attractions. The first day is dedicated to visiting the Philae Temple, Abu Simbel Temple, or the High Dam, all of them are situated on the Nile River so you will enjoy all of them in our Egypt Nile Cruise tours. The second day is dedicated to exploring the Nubian museum and the Nubian Village. The Nubian people's history and culture are explored in the museum.
We recommend you go to Luxor because Luxor has a lot of important ancient Egyptian sites that need a lot of walking around and visiting its temples while Aswan is seen as a place of rest next to its temples.
Aswan offers a wide variety of attractions for visitors to discover and is an ideal base for a one-day tour of the city of Abu Simbel.
The architecture of the High Dam is not only visually attractive nor is it of historical interest. It is hardly a must-see tourist attraction in Aswan.
Travel has helped us to understand the meaning of life and it has helped us become better people. Each time we travel, we see the world with new eyes.
Absolutely mind blowing. A definite must see. We flew from Aswan after I contact Your Egypt Tours, as I did not want to sit in car for hours with my 10-year-old daughter. Just so much history and ancient love. You cannot miss this one thing if you are in Egypt. The rocks are just HUGE, so special.
I recently traveled with my wife, daughter, son in law and two grandsons (ages 4 and 2) to Egypt with Your Egypt Tours. We had a private tour experience. From the moment we landed at the airport on our arrival to the day we left we were treated with the utmost care and attention
Our trip to Egypt was wonderful. The accommodations and travel was seamlessly arranged by customer service rep, Mona, and we visited so many of the famous Egyptian antiquities. I would not have done the trip without the very knowledgeable guides, Ashraf and Mamdouh
