242 reviews
Forget haggling with taxi drivers or piling on and off crowded buses. The best way to experience Luxor is on a private tour, where you can take the sights at your own pace and ask your own personal Egyptologist any questions you like. This one covers the main attractions of both East and West banks, perfect for first-time visitors or anyone with limited time. Round-trip hotel transfers, lunch, and entrance fees are also included.

These are among the best preserved images I've seen in Egypt. The colours are vivid and especially attractive, throughout the entire length of the tomb. Highly recommended.

Ramses III is one of the most recommended and popular tombs in guide books. It is easily accessible for those with mobility issues. Cell phone photos are allowed without a charge but regular cameras require a photo permit. Be aware that locals will start chatting up with you, giving you information about the tomb, and expect to be tipped for their services. This tomb is dated from 1184-1153 BC for this pharaoh who was the last of Egypt's warrior pharaohs. The wonderful decorations include colorful painted reliefs with secular scenes in side rooms.

Often called the Tomb of the Harpists due to scenes showing harpists playing, the tomb of Ramses III depicts the events in the life of Egypt's last warrior Pharaoh. This tomb is one of the longest at 125m and has long passage ways with wall and ceiling decorations right down to the burial chamber. The tomb's decoration consists of various books from the "Book of the Dead" including the Book of Caverns, the Book of Gates, Litany of Ra and the Book of Coming Forth by Day. It is widely believed that Ramses III was poisoned by his queen so her son could rule. Sad that a man who fought hard to save Egypt was betrayed by his family.

Ramses III ruled from about 1186-1155 BC and was known as the last of the warrior pharaohs. His tomb is one of the largest and longest at 410 ft (125 m). Long passageways adorned with detailed, colorful reliefs and hieroglyphics lead down to the burial chamber. You won’t find Ramses III here. His mummy is in the Cairo Museum and the sarcophagus/lid in museums outside of Egypt.

Being in this tomb gave me cause to pause. The spirit of ancient Egypt surrounds you and I would have loved to have just sat alone in there and enjoyed the solemnity of the place.
