A huge rock fill dam which captures the world's longest river, the Nile River, in the world's third largest reservoirs, Lake Nasser. The dam, known as Saad el Aali in Arabic, was completed in 1970 after ten years of work. Today it provides irrigation and electricity for the whole of Egypt and, together with the old Aswan Dam built by the British between 1898 and 1902, 6km down river, makes wonderful views for visitors.

Later visit the Unfinished Obelisk.  Aswan has always been known as being the main source for granite that was used to build obelisks for temples all over the country. This obelisk if completed, would have been the tallest standing at about 42 metres high. The legend goes that during construction the workers noticed problems and just abandoned future construction.

Kom Ombo stands by the Nile just south of Gebel el-Silsila, between Aswan and Edfu, at the site of the ancient city of Per Sobek (the estate of Sobek).

Sobek and Horus the Elderare the two primary gods, and so the temple was also known as "House of the Crocodile" (Sobek) and "Castle of the Falcon" (Horus).After the tour back to the cruise.

This was a secret place, where sentries were placed at the entrance of the Valley, as well as along the top of the hills, in the hopes of discouraging tomb robbers, who had in the past plundered all royal tombs, including the treasures of the Pyramids!
You will visit the great mortuary Temple of Queen Hatshepsut built out of the rock with terraces and colonnades, and pass by the Colossus of Memnon which was erected in the honor of the pharaoh Amenophis.

The Temple includes royal courts surrounded by pairs of Papyrus-bunded columns, sanctuaries and chapels full of wall designs, inscriptions and sacrificial screens.
