The last time I looked, you can hire a cab for about LE 300–350 (there and back) for the car, not per person. Depending upon what is happening at the time, however, the authorities may require you travel in a convoy or less likely not go at all. The large holiday companies will have organised tours which will be more expensive.

You can also take a day’s sail on the “Lotus Boat” , a smallish Nile cruise ship which travels between Luxor and Dendera once or twice a week. The cost is roughly LE 400 per person. These sailings, however, are subject to cancelation or rescheduling if not enough tickets have been sold.

We went by taxi last month. There were no convoys or restrictions in place. We agreed 180LE return (for the taxi, not per person) from Luxor with 2 hours' waiting time at the temple. We virtually had the place to ourselves. Don't miss the crypt - truly impressive.

We did the cruise & thought it was far too long. left the hotel at 6.30am & didn't get back until 7.30pm. It was very cold with the breeze on the river even though the temp in Luxor was around 25c when we were there in December. Food was 'adequate' & there was nothing of any real interest to see on the journey.

However Dendara is a must. If we went back would definitely go by taxi & stop off for a nice lunch somewhere.
