Morning navigation to Kom-Ombo, which, on its promontory overlooking the Nile, is admirably romantic. Dedicated to two deities, Sobek the crocodile and Horus the falcon, the temple has a perfectly symmetrical architecture. Take the time to admire so much beauty! Change of scenery guaranteed to the village of Daraw, certainly one of the highlights of the trip. You will wander in the popular market where colors, perfumes of East and Africa mixed are so many symphonies for the eyes and the nostrils! Back on board for lunch and sailing along the Nubian shores to Aswan. Last night aboard a few kilometers north of Aswan. Typical evening on the banks of the Nile with your crew that you leave tomorrow.

Breakfast. Disembarkation around 8am / 8.30am to go by vehicle to the temple of Philae dedicated to Isis, located on an island 5km south of Aswan. Its bas-reliefs, frescoes and capitals make it one of the most beautiful sanctuaries in Egypt. Great moments of emotion!
