Notes about the information on this page

The cost of entry to Luxor's tombs, temples, museums and other sights increased quite substantially in the years up to 2010, steadied since the fall in tourist numbers in 2011-13 but have since gone up again.

We keep this page as up to date as we can but the authorities do not advise us about changes. Please let us know through the contact form if you know of any errors or updates, or if there are other prices that should be in the list but we have not yet included.

The entry fees are much cheaper for Egyptian nationals and for genuine students. The charges listed are the standard entry fees for non-Egyptian adults. The charges are all per person in Egyptian Pounds.


Last updated May 2015 but not all prices updated at that time.

Children, young people and students

Children. The official line is that entrance tickets and transport in Luxor are free for children up to the age of six. We are not aware of anyone being charged for entry to any of the sights, including the tombs, the temples, the Sound and Light show or the National ferry, for any child who is, or looks, six or younger.

The ticket clerk may ask you to lift the child so they can be seen and they will judge whether they appear to be below the age threshold. A lot seems to be down to the official when assessing ages, but taking the passport or other proof of age may be handy if your child is under 6 but looks older.

Young people and students. Officially, young people between 7 and 12 (inclusive) pay a reduced rate which is around half the adult price but rounded up to the nearest LE5. Young people who look 13 or more will need an Egyptian or international student card to get the reduced student rate (a national card from a country other than Egypt will not normally be accepted). The young person's school or college should be able to help with this. If not, an application can be made online at www.isic.org. We understand that you can also get ISIC cards at an office in Sharia Ahmed Orabi if you don't get one before you go. You have to show passports. Take a passport photo too.
