  • Walk through the desert and over the cliffs from the Valley of the Queens to the Valley of the Kings.
  • Hire a bike and ride around Ancient Thebes – the journey takes less than 15 minutes.
  • A local felucca ride soon before dusk should cost about LE 30 per hour (for one person).
  • Take a two-day felucca tour on the Nile to Aswan (the reverse trip is recommended, however, due to river currents).
  • Riding a donkey, horse, or camel through Luxor’s West Bank is an option. Proceed to Pharaoh’s Stables, which is located only a short distance from the boat station. They will drive you to areas that the large buses cannot reach, allowing you to experience the authentic Egypt, with its friendly people and calm way of life. Each day is unique when you visit the West Bank by horse or donkey, and your guides will accompany you the whole journey. They offer horses suitable for riders of all abilities. The Sunset and Nile cruises are a must-do. www.pharaohstables.com call them on 010 6324961
