Day 2: Abu Simbel, Cairo
Our tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in Abu Simbel and then you will visit the location of the most famous temples (The Great and Small temples) of King Ramses II and his wife Queen Nefertari. The most spectacular aspect of this temple is its setting in the solid rock above the banks of the Nile River. The complex is part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site known as the "Nubian Monuments," which runs from Abu Simbel downriver to Philae (near Aswan). It is believed that the axis of the temple was positioned by the ancient Egyptian architects in such a way that on October 22 and February 22, the rays of the sun would penetrate the sanctuary and illuminate the sculptures on the back wall, except of the statue of Ptah, the god connected with the Underworld, who always remained in the dark. These dates are allegedly the king's birthday and coronation day.
Then we will drive you back to Aswan airport by air conditioned vehicle, where you will catch the flight back to Cairo. Upon arrival in Cairo you will be transferred to your hotel in Cairo to stay overnight.

It was a very good trip on quadbikes in Dahab and also a trip to Mount of Moses. Ahmed is a great guy that can help in everything.
The tours I did were very well planned, Ahmed was very nice and very helpful. I enjoyed every tour, I highly recommend this agency and if i go back to Egypt I would use this agency again
I was very enjoyed my trip to Dahab and especially trips arrangement with Mr. Ahmad official trips and I, personally, will re-trip once again with them next year. I would advise to deal with them
We have a lot of fun with them and spend lovely time, kids enjoyed the outings. We descovered dahab a lot of places I'm dahab, and it was so lovely.
