Aswan Highlights - Aswan Day Tour

Visit the beautiful and peaceful Agilkia Island to explore Philae Temple, learn about the engineering masterpiece that is the Aswan High Dam and walk through an ancient granite quarry to see the Unfinished Obelisk during this Aswan day tour.

Visit the Unfinished Obelisk in the ancient granite quarry of Aswan.  This obelisk is believed to have been built for Queen Hatchepsut but was never completed due to a fatal crack being discovered.  If completed it would have been the largest obelisk ever erected.

Visit the Aswan High Dam which was built to control the flooding of the Nile, provide water for irrigation and generate hydroelectricity.  Regarded as an engineering masterpience the building of the dam also included the creation of Lake Nasser, one of the largest man made lakes in the world.
