This half-day tour gives you the flexibility to explore at your own pace, with a private guide to tell the stories behind the colorful paintings. You’ll see a vibrant ceiling cleaned of soot, climb into the temple crypt, and follow narrow passageways onto the roof, learning about Egypt’s Ptolemaic period along the way. For your convenience, this tour includes entrance fees and round-trip transport from Luxor hotels.
