From there the trip is extended by road to the final destination of Abu Simbel. Along the way, our host make stops at historical points of interest, including archeological sites where excavations are taking place, and at temples, tombs and museums. Taking all this in through the perspective of a boat journey up the river makes for an interesting presentation when you consider this was the way the ancient Egyptians would have seen and experienced their world.
