Egypt has fabulous must see sights. Do what you have to do to include a visit to Abu Simbel. It's breathtaking. The drive from Aswan is long, but my guide and driver were so informative and the desert was interesting. Nassar Lake is calm, blue and beautiful and allowed this site to be saved from flooding. You will be impressed by the grandeur and history of the Great Temple of Ramses II with the grand statues, and interior columns, halls and beautiful reliefs on the walls. Then be awed by the Temple of Hathor. The guards at the doors can be informative at pointing to the most important interior of these 3000 year old monuments.
