Kom Ombo, Aswan

The basics

Since both sites are located north of Aswan, Kom Ombo Temple is often combined with the Temple of Horus at Edfu, another riverside masterpiece. Kom Ombo Temple is also a popular stop on Nile River cruises, which dock a short walk away from the archaeological site. In addition to visiting Kom Ombo Temple itself, it’s worth setting aside some time to explore the onsite Crocodile Museum.

Had a great experience with Mahmoud Hassan
I had a great trip with Mahmoud hassan! He was very enthusiastic and explained a lot about ancient egypt very clearly! In fact, out of the 4 tours I've been on Mahmoud is the one that has been the best at explaining things. I learned the most from him during my trip in Egypt. One thing is that there is no lunch as specified in the tour, it's dinner after the tour, since there are no places to eat in Kom Ombo or Edfu. Overall I'm very happy and enjoyed this very much!!

Good tour, it included lunch and tour guide. The guide went through the temples a bit fast, would have liked if she gave us more time to see everything on the temples. Overall good tour

Private day tour to Kom Ombo and Edfu temples from Aswan
We are very happy that we chose this tour to the temples Kom Ombo and Edfu. Everything went smooth, starting from drive, driver, car.. our guide Islam Mourad was very polite and very knowledgeable. Everybody spoke very good English. We could communicate even regarding our gluten- intollerance (which is very uncommon in Egypt). Both temples are so beautuful and worth seing. We had plenty of time to explore and to take photos. We didnt feel rushed at all. Thank you!

4-Days Nile Cruise Aswan & Kom Ombo , Edfu Luxor,& Abu Simbel. Hot Offer
3 nights/4 day trip up the Nile. Amazing. Staff great, food good, room with view and refrigerator, AC/ heating, comfortable bed. We were picked up from our Hotel by a driver and guide. Every port we came into we had a guide to take just the 2 of us to visit temples. Could not have asked for better services and trip.

Kom Ombo and Edfu temples tour

Private Day Trip To Kom Ombo And Edfu Temples From Aswan
Both temples are absolutely fascinating! Interesting also the drive through the countryside. We found the tour very well organised: We were picked up at the hotel by our very friendly guide. The standard of the car was also very good, as well as the driving skills of the driver. The traffic situation is really a challenge which requires full attention at all times. Our driver did an excellent job! We enjoyed the tour very much! If our guide would have provided a bit more in-depth knowledge (maybe a limitation due to language skills?) it would be a 5 Star rating.
