This private full-day tour from Luxor is tailored to your preferences, so you can marvel at the Temple of Hathor, spend as long as you like touring the Old Kingdom of Abydos, and learn more about ancient Egypt from your private Egyptologist guide. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included.

Your tour begins with pickup from your Luxor hotel in time for an 8am departure. Traveling in the comfort of a private vehicle, set out on the around 1.5-hour journey to Dendera.

My wife and I really enjoyed the tour and temples were fascinating. Although the drive to the temples were about 3 hours, it was worth the time to see the small towns and villages along the way. We stopped at a forced vendor stop outside of the Abydos temple, I say forced because we were not told and had to wait for about 1/2 hour before we can leave and while waiting being bombarded by the shop keeper and any other vendor that walked up. Maybe it was overdone because of the low tourism, but it was a headache. Lastly although we never felt unsafe, but when leaving the temples, we were escorted to a certain point by the Egyptian police. Not sure why and never got a clear answer. As a side note and this applies to anything you do: take plenty of money for tipping, does not have to be a lot, but tips definitely help the people who work in tourism.
