Dendera and Abydos Temples Tour

Starting from £99 per person

Escape the crowds and experience a tour to the magnificent, unspoilt temples of Dendera and Abydos, the best examples of fine architecture in ancient Egypt.

Just a few hours by car from Luxor - but worlds apart - are these two beautiful temples. They still have original paintings on them and are unaffected by mass tourism. The Abydos Temple is dedicated to God Osiris and where the ancient Egyptian’s believed his head to be buried. It’s easy to imagine the spectacular scenes of worship that must have taken place here.

You continue off the beaten track and across rural Egypt to the Dendera Temple which was dedicated to Hathor (Aphrodite of ancient Egypt). You’ll feast your eyes on relics and scenes on the exterior of the temple depicting rituals, images of pharaohs, Roman Emperors and other Egyptian deities. You’ll also discover the remains of a 5th-century Christian basilica, an excellent example of early Coptic Church architecture. Return to your hotel at lunchtime.

Please note: Occasionally actual days of operation are subject to change. If this is the case we will endeavour to book a day as close as possible to your original preferred day. Should this not be acceptable a full refund will be made.

  • Visit the famous Dendera and Abydos Temples
  • Go off the beaten track by many tourists
  • You are back at your hotel by lunchtime to spend the rest of the day how you wish
