Tour’s Program

Our guide will pick you up from your hotel or Cruise in Aswan to cross the Nile then ride your camel to visit St Simeon Monastery. Hear about the history of the historical site of the Monastery of St. Simeon as your guide tells you about its construction in the 7th century. The monastery was dedicated to the Coptic saint Abba Hedra, who renounced the world on his wedding day to become a discipline of Saint Baiman. See firsthand why the monastery was abandoned later in the 13th century due to a lack of water. Admire the beautiful surroundings of desert sands and follow your guide to explore the 2-level building, consisting of 10-foot (3-m) walls with the lower level constructed in stone and the second level of mud brick. Stroll through the site to visit its churches and the tower, still well preserved today. Complete your tour with a camel ride in this remarkable Nubian site.
