Hi All, Hoping someone can help.
I have booked to go on a Nile Cruise and have been told that we will be flying into Luxor and then going to the port to go to the ship. Having paid nearly £1800 for this trip I was expecting some trips thrown in - not all - but have been told in these groups that no trips are included whatsoever (Dont know if ayone can say any different?). Rather than shell out £45 each for a trip to the Valley of the Kings it was suggested that I get off the boat and make my own way there - How realistic is it for me to do this? How far is the Valley of the Kings from the Port? I have spent the last few days searching for Taxi prices but they are all from the centre of Luxor and certain hotels - Never been to Egypt so dont even know how far the port is from the centre of Luxor.
Plus - and I know this is going to sound really stupid - Do you have to pay to get into see certain areas of the Valley or is it all open?
I would really appreciate it if anyone had advice, directions etc for being able to do the sightseeing by ourselves. Any help would be greatfully appreciated.
Shaun and Steph
