The Temple of Edfu
We will start early on that day, you will leave Luxor behind and follow the course of the river Nile south, after one and half hour drive from Luxor we arrive in Edfu. Your guide will take you to visit the majestic Temple of Edfu dedicated to God Horus. According to the Egyptian myths, it was the place where the falcon-headed god Horus revenged the murder of his father Osiris by killing Seth.

After the visit we will stop at a restaurant in Edfu to enjoy some local food.

The Temple of Kom Ombo
You will continue on your route to Kom Ombo, here on bank of the Nile, you will visit a unique temple, unusual for Egyptian sanctuaries in that it is dedicated to two different deities Sobek and Haroeris and built in a mirror-fashion. Inside the temple, you will be left speechless by its incredible hypostyle hall, which feels like entering a forest of elaborately engraved columns. Next to this temple, you will find the Crocodile museum, whose permanent exhibition showcases these mummified reptiles considered sacred in ancient Egypt.
