Temple of Horus at Edfu
#1 of 4 Sights & Landmarks in Edfu
Perhaps the only best preserved temple from the ancient ages offers the best view when visited early in the morning, which could lead to skip the tour groups and crowds before they start arriving at 8:30AM.
Although the site dates from the Old Kingdom much of what you see is built on the remains of a building program initiated by New Kingdom pharaohs notably Ramesses I, Seti I and Ramesses II.

Tombs of El kab
#3 of 4 Sights & Landmarks in Edfu
The site of el-Kab is a bit off the beaten track - it makes a very long (but rewarding) day trip in a taxi from Luxor (I combined it with Tod, Moalla and Esna), and it would be quite a slog from Aswan too.
