Three of us took the private day tour from Luxor to Abydos and then Darra temples. Samir was our guide and he was superb. He was very knowledgeable about both temples and gave us a lot of background information and answered all questions we had on the way to the temples as it’s a bit of a drive. My husband and I are Veterinarians so we really appreciated the fact that he is kind enough to feed and help many of the stray cats and dogs (and there were a lot of them). I wanted to see the Dendara lightbulb and the helicopter hieroglyph in Abydos and he made sure we got to see both of those. When we were in Abydos the Osirian was open for a tour group that got a special permit from Cairo and paid an exorbitant fee to get in, only that tour group was allowed in but we got to see it from above. We had a nice lunch in Abydos and Samir recommended a restaurant walking distance from our hotel when we asked, which we used for dinner and it was delicious! These temples were not as crowded because they are further away. I thoroughly enjoyed this trip and Samir’s guidance and help.

Overall, this was a great tour of the two temples. My guide, Abdul, was great. He spoke fluent English and was very knowledgeable.

The reason, I would not rate this as 5/5 is the transportation and schedule. This trip involves almost 6 hours of driving in a car. I am a tall/big guy at 6’1” and was told to get in the back of the car. I sat behind the driver who was short, but had his car seat all the way back so that my legs were cramped for much of the drive.

Regarding the schedule, the tour says it includes lunch. I got picked up at 8am and lunch wasn’t until we got back to Luxor at almost 5pm. I am accustomed to having lunch around Noon/1pm. My guide was nice enough to get me a bag of potato chips, but the company should try to find a restaurant near one of the two temples or pack a lunch for guests.

We had an amazing half day tour to dendara temple, only Greco-Roman temple. We had to cut the tour short because I didnt feel that well, but nevertheless, it’s amazing to see it and I would definitely recommend it. We had Remon for the second day in a row, and it’s the only guide I consider taking as he’s VERY passionate about Egyptian history, explains everything very well and answers every question, and then gives you free time to take pictures and see the temple.
Thank you emo tours and Remon !

This was by far a splendid surprise!

We had a little time to cut and our guided recommended this half day tour, and she was most right to take us there!! We loved it! It was totally astonishing temple ! We loved to visit it with Dina as we were two females travelling, and felt with a friend. The temple itself is totally under-rated it is if not my favorite visit in Luxor ! Full of surprises, secret rooms... etc
It speaks for itself!

It’s 1 h ride back and forth but worth the time and money. The sculptures are so well preserved and the colours still very appreciated! Adding a few pictures because it is truly a treasure to discover!
Most thanks to our wonderful guide ask for Dina!

Salam ask for Dina!

We had an amazing time with our guide Sam. We learned a lot from Dendara and Abydos, which are must see attractions while staying on Luxor, and finished the day with a meal with a great view. Its definitely necesary to have a knowleadgeable guide in order to really appreciate the scope and longevity of the temples and egyptian culture. Great experience.

Had Hassan Mageed as a tour guide and fantastic driver tour me around the Dendara and Abydos Temples, which are off the beaten path from Luxor. Hassan was extremely knowledgeable and provided detailed explanations of the history of the temples. If you have extra time in Luxor, definitely worth it plus a great way to see the country side of Egypt during the drive.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone having some time in Luxor. It’s a long ride to dendarah (and abydos but we didn’t do that) but it’s worth seeing it.
If you can you should have Remon as your guide because he explained everything about the place very well in a very calm and amazing way !

Dendara and Abydos are amazing sites to visit and worth the trip. Our tour guide, Ghada, was the best guide we have ever had - she has a deep knowledge of Egyptian history and is an excellent guide. It really made our tour a good experience. If it had been possible, I would have done our whole Egypt trip with her. Our driver (Moussala) was very competent too. The pair of them made this an unforgettable experience.

We had a great time with our guide Ahmed omar And our driver Salah! They are both friendly and professional. I recommend them! Ahmed takes time to explain everything. Thanks a lot!

It’s about 1h30 to go to Dendara temple and another 1h30 from Dendara to Abydos. So in total we drove for about 6hours.
