What to Expect
Day 1: Hurghada - Aswan

Upon arrival you will be going to your hotel and have some time to freshen up, Enjoy lunch at a local restaurant, before we begin our tour to visiting the High Dam of Aswan, where your guide will explain to you how the construction of the dam and subsequent creation of Lake Nasser required the relocation of the Nubian people and several important historical monuments. We'll then take a short boat ride to Agilkia Island to explore the Temple of Isis at Philae.
