Day Trip from Luxor to Edfu and Kom Ombo

Tour Itinerary

Detailed program

In the morning you will be picked up from your hotel in Luxor by an air-conditioned car that takes you across the Barrage to Edfu on the East side of the Nile. In Edfu you will visit the Temple of Horus, which is dedicated to the god Horus, the falcon-headed god. This relatively young pharaonic temple is well-preserved and therefore very impressive. After this temple you will be taken to see the Temple of Kom Ombo, which is dedicated to the crocodile god Sobek. The temple, dating to the Ptolemies, is built on a high dune overlooking the Nile. Ptolemy VI Philometor started building the actual temple in the early second century BC. Ptolemy XIII built the outer and inner hypostyle halls. The outer enclosure wall and a part of the court were built by Augustus sometime after 30 BC, and are mostly gone. There are also tombs from the Old Kingdom in the vicinity of Kom Ombo village.
After touring the temples you will be transferred back to your hotel in Luxor by an air-conditioned vehicle.
