Getting There and Around

The drive up from Luxor takes about two hours and requires permission (at least 24 hours in advance) from the tourist police. You can arrange ahead of time for a private car and driver to ensure you have the most control over the time you'll spend at the sight, or you can join an organized tour through your hotel or one of several Luxor tour operators. Either way, the car company or the tour operator will obtain the police permit for you. If you have time, you can add a stop at Dendera on your return to Luxor.
