Τι θα κάνετε

Certainly not everyone visits the temples of Abydos and Dendera because it is quite a long drive, but definitely worth it because these are 2 of the most beautiful temples in Egypt. And the best thing is, in these temples there are no swarms of tourists and you can wander and enjoy undisturbed.

You are picked up from your accommodation in Luxor and go first to the temple of Abydos, which is located about 170 km north of Luxor. The temple is famous for its many graves and graves, which date from the kings of the First and Second Dynasty.

There is a lunch box and drink with us on the road.

On the way back you visit the temple of Dendera (about 80 kilometers from Luxor). Dendera is one of the best preserved complexes in Egypt. This temple holds several hidden crypts, the crypts can be entered through a small opening.

After this visit the drive back to Luxor takes about 1.5 hours.

Included
- the temple of Abydos
- the temple of Dendera
- an excellent Egyptologist guide
- private air conditioned car/van
- lunchbox/water on the way
- pick up and return in Luxor

The ticket prices are not included, for this experience the extra costs (and can only be paid in Egyptian pounds):
Seti temple in Abydos: 100 EGP
Dendera temple: 120 EGP

Hello, my name is Mohamed, I was born and raised in Luxor and my major passions are history and art. On the West Bank of Luxor I have apartments for rent, and in Luxor city I have shops (including an antique shop in the Old Winter Palace with 19th century objects) and a travel agency. Together with my team, a reliable driver and an excellent Egyptology guide, we would like to show you the best temples. And the best thing is, in the temples of Abydos and Dendera you will not find swarms of tourists but you can enjoy undisturbed. I have been offering this tour for years (outside of Airbnb) to my guests in the apartments, be sure to check out their reviews in my profile to get an idea!

I took three different tours when in Egypt and this one was my absolute favorite. The only issue was when we arrived, the driver who picked us up from the airport had a "friend" of his take our bags to the van. We were so confused because we thought that this "friend" was part of the tour. He was not and we had to then tip this man because he was a friend of the driver. This happens all over Egypt, however and is not uncommon. We had previously been diligent about not having this happen to us, but we were caught up in the confusion. Everything else, however, was the best. We were picked up early and provided with breakfast snacks and a lunch. Our guide was very kind and approachable. He had a lot of knowledge and insight into the sites and read us the stories of the heiroglyphics. He taught us to recognize certain cartouches so we could bring that knowledge forward to other ancient sites. I regret not being able to book him for further sites due to time and money constraints. I would recommend to all my friends and family to take this tour if they visit this area.

Both sites are filled with history, and definitely worth the drive from Luxor. Our guide, Hamdy, was able to point out and explain the smallest details, making this a very educational tour.

Our guide, Hamdi was very knowledgeable and passionate about ancient Egypt. The temples and ruins were incredible. We could’ve spent the a few days there.

Our guide was Saber. Saber told us that he is the descendant of Hatshepsut (if my mother heard and conveyed it correctly). Saber speaks fluent English and is a happy person. This came through during our tour. They are absolutely right that Denderra and Abydos are not on every tourists' list. In fact it is more likely that they are not on your list. There are literally no tourists (apart from a few local students) in the temples. But don't be mistaken, these temples are no less worth visiting than the popular ones in Luxor. I am a huge huge fan of the Denderra temple. The temple was dedicated to the goddess of cow (Hathor). The temple has got the best preserved scenes (with very well preserved colours) amongst all the temples we went to (including Luxor and Karnak temples and the tombs in the Valley of the Kings). You need to see the photos I uploaded here. The detail of the scenes are amazing and incredibly well-preserved. You can see the patterns of the feathers of the falcon and on the Egyptian skirts of the kings and queens. The colour of the scenes are richer than those in any other temples. Even the statues outside the temple had their colours well preserved (the blue and red stripes on Hathor's head if I remember correctly). Saber let us into the crypt of the Denderra temple. Going into the crypt itself is a good experience as you have to climb and sit and duck to get in there. That temple is the only one that has stairs (both straight and square spiral ones) to go to the roof. It houses the first zodiac depictions. The Abydos temple is a little far away, about 3 hours' drive. The Denderra temple a bit closer (1 to 2 hours depending whether the police would let you drive on the highway). The Abydos temple has an interesting partition. You know, King Rameses II made himself a sanctuary as well for 6 other gods (the only temple to house more than 1 god if I am not mistaken). The king did that deliberately so that he can make himself 1 of the 7 gods there. To be very honest, I think the Abydos temple is a bit too far for my taste, but you MUST see the Denderra temple which is not far at all! And I don't think many tour agencies do tours there. It is not popular. It is not where the money goes. I really appreciate the fact that Mohamed does tours there. AGAIN, YOU HAVE TO GO TO DENDERRA TEMPLE.

This was my 3rd experience with Mohamed and my tour guide Aladdin. I enjoyed this experience and the temples are both stunning and worth the long drive. It's definitely an all day experience, so I suggest you start early. Mohamed even includes a box packed with lots of food and snacks for you to take along with you. Aladdin was knowledgeable as always and I learned a lot as he guided me through the temples.

Just back from an amazing day with Hamdy to the Dendera and Abydos temples. I don't think there's anything Hamdy doesn't know about the ancient history of these places, he was a true fountain of information! I got picked up from my accommodation precisely on time and felt welcome immediately. As a female solo traveller, this was great and just what I was looking for. The fact that it wasn't a private tour was also exactly right for me , because even though I like travelling alone, I also like to meet other people and my fellow tour mates were good company :) All in all a top experience; if I could've given 6 stars, I would have done so!
