Aswan, Edfu, Abu Simbel

Is it possible to cover Aswan, Edfu, and Abu Simbel in 8 days and 7 nights? Is so, what is the best way? Train, bus, air?

Thanks in advance.

Yes you can cover those 3 cities and more in 8 days.

1/. Fly from Cairo or Aswan to Abu Simbel and return the same day to Aswan.

2/. Tour Aswan as well as Philae Tembple in 2 days and 1 night.

3/. Cruise via a Nile cruiser to Luxor stopping at Edfu and a few other places along the way - 4 days and 3 nights.

Total = 7 days and 6 nights.

That's more than enough time to do a leisurely tour. I agree with Hanuman that that is the best way. If you don't want to do a cruise, you can go by microbus with a private guide. I'm used Tut Egypt Tours out of Luxor and they did a wonderful job of taking care of us and we were provided with a licensed Egyptologist as a guide. It was also very affordable, which I liked.
