My boyfriend and I will be on the Egypt & Jordan Caravan tour in December. We are looking forward to an excursion to Abu Simbel. We are planning to fly, but will book our own flights because the excursion associated with the tour only allows 1 hour at the site.
So, my questions: ideally, how much time should we allow at Abu Simbel? If we arrive in Abu Simbel at 7am, would a return flight at 10:30am or 1:10pm be better? We will be catching the sleeper train that evening, so any thoughts about timing would be appreciated also (e.g. is a 2pm flight arrival at Aswan too late?).
