Travel to the land of the Pharaohs with Dr Oscar Tours

Home to one of the world’s first great civilisations and more ancient wonders than you can shake a stick at, Egypt needs little introduction. With world famous pyramids, tomb strewn Valley of the Kings and the mighty temples of Abu Simbel, Egypt has attracted travellers since classical times. But there's more to Egypt than pharaohs, mummies and hieroglyphics. Take a luxury cruise or sail aboard a felucca on the longest river in the world - the Nile, or experience world class diving and snorkelling in the Red Sea.

As a leading operator in Egypt, we offer a wide range of trips from guided group and private journeys that cover the most  to tailor-made holidays and special itineraries that take in the Sun Festival at Abu Simbel.

Egypt Festival Tours

For a holiday in Egypt that's out of the ordinary, consider one of our unique tours that combine the highlights of ancient Egypt with a special dawn visit to Abu Simbel to witness a true spectacle. Our Sun Festival trips coincide with the birthday (21 October) and coronation day (21 February) of King Ramses II when the temple's inner sanctum is illuminated by the sun's ray. With incredible architectural precision, Ramses II had his entire temple carefully angled and oriented for this precise event.

The architectural brilliance of the ancient Egyptians: The original Abu Simbel temple was built in the 13th century BC by King Ramses II. With four separate statues depicting Ramses at various stages of his adult life at the temple's entrance, it’s an impressive monument before one even enters. Carved out of the mountainside, the temple’s inner sanctum also has four statues; three of which - Amun-Re, Re-Herakhte and Ramses the god - are illuminated by the sun’s rays twice a year on the sun festival, whilst the statute of Ptah (the god of darkness) remains in the shadows. But the wonders don’t stop there. In the late 1960s, the shoreline of Lake Nasser was in danger of eroding the temple foundations and damaging it permanently. Engineers relocated the temple further up the bank, which means it now aligns with the sun a day later than it did in Ramses' day.

Breathtaking in both size and complexity, Luxor is described as the "world's greatest open air museum" and showcases all that is left of the Ancient city of Thebes.
