For a holiday in Egypt that's out of the ordinary, we offer a selection of unique tours which combine the highlights of ancient Egypt, with a special visit to Abu Simbel over the spectacular Sun festival!
We have six amazing Abu Simbel Sun Festival tours, marked to coincide with the birthday and coronation day of King Ramses II. In a fit of precision and architectural egotism, Ramses II had his entire temple carefully angled and oriented in order that the sun’s rays would align just twice a year on his date of his ascension to the throne (21 February) and on his birthday (21 October) and illuminate the inner sanctum. We offer you the chance to witness this incredible phenomenon!
Add an extra special element to your Egyptian holiday by combining it with the magical Abu Simbel Sun Festival. Pyramids and Sphinx, felucca sailing on the Nile, the Valley of the Kings and energetic Cairo all in 9 fun filled days!
