After being picked up from your hotel in Luxor, we will drive along the course of the River Nile south in the direction of Upper Egypt.

The first stop on your guided excursion of these ancient temples will be Edfu,

Edfu Temple:
where you'll visit the Temple of Horus. Do you know the legends that surround this falcon-headed deity? You'll reveal some of the fascinating tales about him through the inscriptions carved into the columns of the temple. The hieroglyphs, which you can try your hand at decoding, not only represent scenes of the legendary conflict between Horus and Seth, but also provide information on how the temple was built. 

Having lunch at a local restaurant in Edfu, you'll continue on your route to Kom Ombo.

Kom Ombo:
Here on the eastern bank of the Nile you'll visit a unique temple, unusual for Egyptian sanctuaries in that it is dedicated to two different deities: Sobek and Haroeris. Inside the temple, you'll be left speechless by its incredible hypostyle hall, which feels like entering a forest of elaborately engraved columns. 
Next to the temple, find the Crocodile Museum, whose permanent exhibition showcases these mummified reptiles, considered sacred in Ancient Egypt.

At the end of your guided tour, you'll make the return journey to Luxor.
