Full description

We will pick you up from your hotel in the morning at 5:00 am, drive approx. 250 km to Dendera.

The Dendera temple was dedicated to the goddess Hathor, the goddess of maternal qualities and love. This grand temple is over 2000 years old. In the temple you will visit the holy lake, sanatorium, Mamisi and the only surviving image of Pharaoh Cleopatra. Your guide will also show you beautiful astronomical images on the ceiling and mysterious reliefs in the crypt of the temple.

We leave Dendera Temple and drive for about an hour (100 km) until we arrive in Abydos. We will have lunch in Abydos, then our cultural program begins in this historic city.

The god Osiris was worshiped in Abydos and it was one of the most important religious cities of the ancient world. In the Temple of Abydos, you will learn about the eternal struggle between good and evil, about the myth of Horus and Set.

In the temple of Abydos you can admire very well-preserved reliefs and flowers, images and symbols of hieroglyphs, which are clearly and accurately carved in stone.

The roster of the kings of Abydos and the pharaoh Ramses II with the crown prince hunting wild animals are some of the special scenes in the temple.

After an interesting day, we return to Hurghada.

    The day trip from Hurghada to Dendera and Abydos is recommended without a doubt. The information provided by the guide at the temples of both locations made up for the long journey. In Dendera, we got to know the Hathor Temple, one of the best-preserved temples in Egypt, and we were able to see the filigree representations, especially in the temple part of Seti I. experience in the Osirium in Abydos.
