Train Ticket Price

by Katy77

Hi I am going back to Luxor in a couple of weeks time. Has anyone bought train tickets from Luxor to Cairo recently, who could advise me of the cost. I paid about £20 return in December, but I hear the price has gone up considerably.

Thanks in advance

Cheers

I went to the train station today to ask but the answer was a bit weird
he said there is a train every hour and hte cost is 100Egyptian pound .But he told me if you want a ticket i can give you one now
so if you really want one tell me hte exact date adn time and i get the ticket and send it to you so we can be really sure
Thanks
Karim

Hi Karim

Thank you for your trouble. I thought tickets had to be booked about three weeks in advance. I am not sure of dates yet.

We just gpt back from Egypt trip. We took train from Luxor to Aswan on Mar. 12. The ticket price (first class, speed train) was 46 Egyptian pound (about $8.75). It's very inexpensive from US standard. I think with this information your should be able to roughly estimate the fare from Cairo to Luxor.

Travel Tips for Luxor

Shopping

by dave123taylor

When you visit Egypt/Luxor, you will be seen as a cash cow. You are there to have your money taken from you.
A shop keeper’s aim is to take as much money as possible from you. He will not offer you something for a fair price then expect you to pay it.

He'll probably start at 3 to 10 time the fair price.

Here's how I deal with it.

Make your Mind up on the Following before attempting to do a Deal.
Do you want the item?
What price would you be willing to pay max?
What would be a really good bargain price for you?]
Also have the right change ready for the amount you want to pay. (Important)
Let’s take an example of a Galabeya.
Once the shop keeper has your attention he'll ask if you want to deal in Egyptian or English pounds. Let’s say Egyptian pounds.
He'll tell you he'll let you have it for 500 EP (That’s £50)
When you laugh at him give it him back and move away he'll give it you back and say okay no tourist price but Egyptian price or Asda price for 300 EP.
Say no and say too much.
He'll ask you okay how much you want to pay. tel him your bargain price and say it's not worth more that's all you want to pay.
So offer him your bargain price of 30 EP (£3) now he'll act insulted and maybe laugh at you.
He may come down to 150 EP (£15) that's from £50
Tell him okay you'll go to 40 Ep (£4)
He'll beg for the 150EP (£15)
At this point give it him back and walk away.
He'll come after you. (Yes he will, he'll not loose a sale)
Have you last price ready (Say 50 EP £5) Show him the 50Ep and say you are going now take the Galabeya and give him the 50EP. If he takes it you've got you deal. £5 down from £50. :)
If you do walk away and he doesn't follow you don't worry. You then know his last price was really his lowest and he can't go lower.
You can then either go back and offer him that price or you know at the next shop the lowest price to pay. The Temples

A Tight Squeeze

by JRussell

Wetook a 3 day cruise down the Nile from Luxor to Aswan.
One day we went through the Esna Lock, what a tight fit that was! The gap between the wall and the boat a man had to fit between to pull the boat physically through the lock.

Green Luxor & Farming a way of life!

by goutammitra

God has been very kind on Egypt by giving them the river Nile. They have benefitted for the generation since, human kind is active. It provided the the real life and civilization. Now in modern days the fertile Nile soil has turned the desert in to an Oasis in all respect.

We found the vegetables, fruits are being grown in many parts of the city as well apart from both the banks of the Nile river. It really shows how hard working people of Egypt are, they are exploring every opportunity to turn their city as Green!

Valley of the Kings

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The Valley of the Kings is hidden behind the Theban Hills on the West Bank of the Nile near Luxor. It was chosen as the burial place for most of Egypt's New Kingdom rulers for several reasons. The Valley is very close to the cultivated banks of the river and ancient Thebes. It is surrounded by steep cliffs. That is why it was easily guarded. The local limestone, cut millions of years ago by torrential rains to form the Valley, is good for making tombs.

There are 62 numbered royal and private tombs in the Valley of the Kings. Some of them have a simple pit, like KV 54. Some of tombs are huge like KV 5 with over 121 chambers and corridors. Most were found already plundered. A few, like the tomb of Tutankhamen (KV 62) contained thousands of precious artefacts.

The Necropolis of Thebes is really a highlight of Luxor.
There are in fact two connected valleys, of which the eastern is the more important. A total of 62 tombs have been given an official number, and there are at least three unnumbered tombs. Not all the numbered tombs belong to kings, some of them were constructed for members of the royal family.

Admission 70 LE ($13).
This ticket allowers to visit three tombs at your choice.
To visit Tutankhamun Tomb you should buy the separate ticket. It costs 100 LE ($19).
Open hours: from 7.30 till 17.30 (in April).

VT has the separate location for the Valley of Kings (Necropolis of Thebes). I put my own page here with 12 tips and 54 pics. You may see more pics on my Travelogue
