What people are saying about Luxor

Long trip! Very hot (wear comfortable sandals, hat and sunscreen). Water provided. Bring 5EGP for every toilet. Additional total of 1300EGP/person for Karnak, Hatshepsut, Valley of the Kings (can visit 3 tombs - Tutankhamen is 300EGP extra). Banana island is optional (around 200EGP if I recall correctly) Moshera was very informative telling us also about the culture of the villages we transited by. She gave us time to wonder freely but explained and gave context before letting us go on site.
