Luxor Private Full-Day Tour: Discover the East and West Banks of the Nile

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.

It's not well known like the other temples in Luxor but it is one of a kind. The serenity and peace felt there is unbelievable. Visit it a bit late in the day to enjoy a nice breeze between the huge columns.

The habu temple is less known than the luxor or karnak temple, but it has a lot to offer and in my opinion, the more beautiful temple in luxor. Interesting is the adjoining palace, which conveys an idea about real life.

It was a cold Luxor winter's day that I set forth to visit Ramses III's Medinat Habu and the Ramesseum of Ramses II. Myself and my guide were the only two to visit the temple at that time in the morning. It was also my first visit. The place has atmosphere, is beautifully built and gives us a idea about the last great warrior Pharaoh, Ramses III. The temple is approximately 150m long and almost a copy of the Ramesseum. Most of the walls are decorated and the entire area was enclosed by mud brick in the fashion of a migdol which was an architectural feature of Asiatic fortresses of the time. The entrance to Medinat Habu is described as a Syrian Gate. The temple features a "Window of Appearances" where common people could come to be viewed by the pharaoh and this was part of the connection between the temple and the royal palace. The temple also features a partial 'Kings List' of pharaohs up to Ramses III. Some of the decorations on the worlds feature Ramses's fight against the "Sea Peoples'.
