Our private tour to one of the most beautiful temples in Upper Egypt Dendera and Abydos city visit is specially designed for those who like ancient Egyptian history and wants to see more our of the bitten track, discover more interesting places to visits and temples to admire.

Pick up in the early morning from any hotel in Hurghada and transfer to Dandara by a/c vehicle. The journey may take up to 4 hours. Upon arrival in Dendera let“s explor the area around the temple and then visit the temple of Hathor . The Temple of Hathor comprises a Great Hypostyle Hall which has 18 Hathor columns once painted in brilliant colours. They supported a roof that is divided into 7 sections, each of which is decorated with astronomical scenes, they so well preserved only in this temple. The Second Hypostyle hall has 6 columns with richly ornamented capitals.

Let us move on and continue our journey towards Abydos. A couple of hours more and we are at the famous temples of Seti I and Ramses II. The most visited temples at Abydos are those of the New Kingdom of Seti I and Ramses II. The Temple of Seti I is decorated with some of the finest reliefs sculpture of any age to be found in the Nile valley. And the reliefs of the nearby temple of Ramses II are so finely carved that they lead us to suspect that the temple was constructed at the beginning of his reign and decorated by the very artists who worked under his father, Seti I. While the temple of Ramses II is not well preserved but it must once have been among the most beautiful temples in the Nile valley.

Our next stop will be at Osirion. It is a separated structure and lays behind the Temple of Seti I to the southwest. While its purpose is unclear, the architectural features of the structure are unique. After we finish exploring the sight we will go back to Hurghada.

My recent excursion from Hurghada to Dendera and Abydos was nothing short of enchanting. From the moment our adventure began, the well-organized tour showcased the rich tapestry of Egypt's ancient history in a seamless and enjoyable manner. The journey itself was a comfortable ride by car, providing picturesque views of the Egyptian landscape along the way. The skilled and knowledgeable guide added immeasurable value to the experience. Their passion for Egyptology and history was evident, making every historical tidbit come alive. The first stop at Dendera Temple was awe-inspiring. The intricate hieroglyphics and remarkably preserved structures transported us back in time, offering a glimpse into the religious practices of ancient Egyptians. The guide's detailed explanations provided context, allowing us to appreciate the significance of each carving and architectural detail. A highlight of the tour was the visit to the Temple of Seti I in Abydos. The sheer grandeur of the temple and its well-preserved reliefs left us in awe. The guide's storytelling ability painted vivid pictures of ancient rituals and beliefs, making the historical narrative accessible and engaging to all participants. The lunch provided during the tour was a delightful break, offering a chance to savor authentic Egyptian cuisine. The restaurant's ambiance and the variety of dishes catered to different tastes, ensuring a satisfying experience for everyone. What truly stood out was the personalized attention and flexibility of the tour organizers. They accommodated our questions, adjusted the pace to our group's preferences, and ensured everyone felt comfortable throughout the journey.
