The Tombs of the Nobles occupy a high hill on the west bank across from Aswan city. Take the ferry across, then walk west a few hundred yards. The desert begins and there will be a kiosk for tickets (20 Egyptian pounds). Walk up the steep stairs. The tombs date from the Old and Middle Kingdoms. The Tomb of Sarenput II has wonderful color, even after 4000 years. Almost certainly you'll be there by yourself. A guide will offer to show you around. Go with him; the individual tombs are a bit hard to find. It's a short walk from the charming Bet el-Kerem hotel. WE did it one morning very early, returning for breakfast at Bet el-Kerem.
