What You'll Do
  • Explore the archeological sites of Abydos and Dendera
  • Admire the well-preserved Temple of Seti I
  • See the impressive Ptolemaic Temple, dedicated to the goddess Hathor
Overview
Most visitors to Egypt head to Cairo or Luxor, but there are treasures of ancient civilization to be seen at Abydos and Dendera as well. Take a tour of these important archeological sites and learn about the beginnings of the earliest dynasties.
What to Expect
You’ll be met as you disembark from your cruise ship in Safaga, and soon be on your way to experience archeological treasures of ancient Egypt.

On this full-day guided tour your first destination is Abydos, one of the very earliest cities in Egypt and one of its most important archaeological sites.

Admire the Temple of Seti I, with its well preserved, and still partly colored reliefs. You’ll see at the famous Abydos King List, bearing the name of the kings reigning before Seti himself, beginning with Menes, considered to have been the first Pharaoh of a united Egypt, and ending with Ramesses I, Seti’s father.

You’ll see the Osireion, a cenotaph built to honor the god Osiris which, according to legend, contained his head. Not far from the Seti I temple you’ll see the temple built by his son Ramesses II, with reliefs depicting his battles. Ramesses II may well have been the greatest and most powerful rule of ancient Egypt.

After the visit you’ll have lunch before heading on to your second destination of the day.

When you arrive at Dendera you’ll marvel at the impressive Ptolemaic Temple. Dedicated to the goddess Hathor, this is one of the best-preserved sanctuaries in Egypt.
