Why take this tour?
You will be picked up by a professional tour guide and will drive south past picturesque villages. We visit the Edfu Temple, dedicated to the God Horus. The has a pillared hall, two diagonal halls and a sanctuary surrounded by chapels. The walls provide details of the construction, the religious myths and the family history of Horus. The temple is nearly intact and a very good example of an ancient Egyptian temple. After lunch, we drive further south to Kom Ombo to visit the famous double temple, dedicated to "Horus the Elder" and Sobek. There are some remarkable scenes on the temple walls which will be explained to you like the portrayal of a set of surgical instruments that look extraordinarily like the ones we use today. Furthermore there is a beautiful depiction of an ancient calendar, showing the hieroglyph figures for the days of the month and the seasons. After a visit to the Crocodile Museum with its mummified crocodiles, you will be brought back to your hotel.
