This unforgettable statue combines the head of a Pharaoh with a lion's body. Following this, enjoy a quick visit to either the papyrus institute or a perfume shop.

Break for lunch then continue the tour at the Egyptian Museum. The museum exhibits over 120,000 objects ranging from the pre-historic era to the Greco Roman period. Marvel at wonderous artefacts, as you discover the museums' various statues, jewels, and Tutankhamen treasures.

If you choose not to visit Abu Simbel, instead enjoy a felucca sailing tour, immersing yourself in the scenic beauty that surrounds our cruiser.
