What to Expect
Travel back to the days of the earliest dynasties of Ancient Egypt on a full-day tour of Dendera and Abydos from Hurghada.

Following a pick-up from your hotel, drive to Abydos Temple, and learn how it was once one of the holiest sites in the world. Explore the cult of the god Osiris, and hear about the gateway to the underworld. Marvel at the Temple of Seti I, built around 1300 BC by Seti I and his son, Ramses II. Look at the fine reliefs, considered among the best of the New Kingdom.

Investigate the list of ancient kings, starting with the pharaoh Menes, considered the 1st pharaoh of a united Egypt. Your Egyptologist guide will tell you about some of the legendary rulers, including the pharaohs that should probably be banished from memory!

Continue to the cenotaph at Osireion, built to honor the god Osiris. According to myth, the cenotaph contained his head. See the nearby temple built by his son, Ramesses II, and its depictions of battles. Learn about the greatest, and most powerful, man of the Egyptian Empire in detailed reliefs.

Drive to Dendera Temple to explore one of the best-preserved temple complexes in Egypt. View the last Egyptian temple built in the time of the Greeks and Romans. See decorations of Roman emperors alongside Egyptian gods. Dedicated to Hathor, goddess of love, happiness, joy and music, it is the only temple in Egypt where you can see a beautiful carving of Queen Cleopatra VII.

Admire the intact astronomical ceiling and accessible rooftop, and enjoy fantastic views of the surrounding countryside before your transfer back to Hurghada.
