Overview
Visit a pair of spectacular temples outside of Luxor on a full-day, private trip to Edfu Temple and Kom Ombo Temple. Traveling in the comfort of a climate-controlled vehicle, you’ll travel to the Temple of Edfu, lost and preserved for centuries beneath desert sand, then continue to the Ptolemaic Temple of Kom Ombo, dedicated to the gods Horus and Sobek. Choosing a private tour means you’ll have the flexibility to explore at your own pace, with an expert guide to share the stories behind the ancient sites.
What to Expect
Full-day tour in Luxor starts at 7:00am. Your guide will pick you up from your hotel in Luxor and transfer you by a/c private vehicle to Edfu, which is around a 50-minute drive south of Luxor. Upon arrival in Edfu visit the majestic Temple of Edfu that is dedicated to Horus.

You will have a box lunch included. After lunch continue your day tour to Kom Ombo, which is around a 45-minute drive from Eduf. Arrive at Kom Ombo and then transfer to see the Temple of Kom Ombo standing on high grounds overlooking the Nile. It differs from other temples because of its double entrance, each one is dedicated to divinity: "Haroeris" with his falcon head and " Sobek " with his crocodile head. The Temple of Kom Ombo was built for the honor of two deities: the crocodile-headed Sobek, god of fertility and creator of the world, and Haroeris or the ancient falcon-headed Horus. Also, Kom Ombo's importance lies in its huge sugar-cane.

Around 4:00pm, you will be transferred back to your hotel in Luxor. Your private, knowledgeable guide will accompany you on the whole tour.
