We were on several trips to ancient Egyptian places, but none were as strikingly beautiful as the Temples of Abydos and Dendera. It is really strange that this tour is so way down the list, as is was definitely the best we had from our holiday in Egypt. The Egyptologist astounded us with his intricate knowledge of the inscriptions and ancient Egyptian beliefs. I would also like to point out that the food we received at the restaurant was the best food I have eaten so far in Egypt. Alone the restaurant is worth traveling to Abydos. The tour is somewhat pricey, but considering what you get, it is actually a bargain. A comfortable car + excellent food + Egyptologist with a huge knowledge on Ancient Egypt + Beautiful temples combine to make a tour we definitely enjoyed. Highly recommended to those who want to really get to know about ancient Egypt and enjoy Egyptian cuisine.

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.
