Itinerary

Your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in Aswan, and transfer to the Nile side where your motor boat is waiting. Board your boat and cross the Nile to the high cliffs opposite Aswan, just north of Kitchener’s Island. A set of stairs cutting across the hill takes you up to the tombs from the Boat landing. The Nobles tombs in Aswan dates mainly from the Old, Middle and New Kingdoms of ancient Egypt and most follow a simple plan, with an entrance hall, a pillared room and a corridor leading to the burial chamber. The tombs provide important vivid wall paintings showing scenes of everyday life details of officials. The tombs are decorated with, hieroglyphic biographies and inscriptions telling of the noblemen’s journeys into Africa.

On top of the hill above the tombs of the Nobles there is a small shrine or tomb of a local sheikh and holy man “Kubbet el-Hawa” Translated as “the dome of the wind’. The climb is rewarded with amazing views of Aswan, the Nile River and the surrounding landscape. After finishing, transfer back to your Nile Cruise or hotel in Aswan.
