Departure Time

8:00 PM
Begin your experience with a pickup from your central Aswan hotel or cruise ship. Hop inside your private, air-conditioned vehicle and travel to Philae Temple, set on an island in a basin of the Nile River.

On route, hear how the temple was built during the 3rd and 2nd centuries BC, and dedicated to the Egyptian goddess, Isis. During the 1970s, the building was dismantled at its original location on Philae Island, and re-erected on its current island to save it from flooding caused by the completion of the new Aswan High Dam in 1970.

On arrival, have your camera ready for the spectacular sound and light show. Watch in awe as a rainbow of lights and laser projections illuminates the temple, bringing it to stunning life.

Walk through the atmospherically lit courts, halls and colonnades as the English commentary summons up the ghosts of pharaohs past and recounts the temple’s history through the ages. Discover the symbolic meanings behind the wall reliefs and admire the lights of the floodlit edifice reflected in the lapping Nile waters.

After the show, return to your private vehicle and travel directly back to your hotel or cruise ship, where your tour ends.

Although Aswan was quiet I was stunned that the entire sound and light show, including private transfer and boat crossing, was arranged for just the five in our party. Yes, that's right, the entire temple just for five interested travellers. If there is any doubt that the Egyptians are keen to regain their tourist trade then surely this must be it! An excellent show, better than the slightly garish effort at the pyramids, does intermingle myth and historical fact in its spiel but gives an insight into the history and development of this site, including to transfer to the island during the flooding from the formation of Lake Nasser. Don't miss it!

Bravo pour les démarches de notre accompagnateur et l intervention de l agence . En fait, nous n'étions que 2 et Il fallait au moins 7 personnes pour lancer le son et lumière. Après quelques démarches nous avons pu y assister en VIP!!! Merci pour ce spectacle très intéressant et qui permet une autre approche du temple que pendant la journée.
