Is that a typo Bombay? It looks a very odd figure to me, but it has been rather a long time since I got a taxi from Luxor aiport to the temple too!

Sounds about right....but then I don't live in Luxor.

The topic has been addressed before :

viewtopic.php?f=2&t=37602&hilit=taxi+fares

Since then prices may have doubled.....but so has the EGP to GBP rate.

Agree the price before you get in and you can't go far wrong.

There you go then NT 100le seems to be about right. Hope you enjoy your visit.

Niletraveller, welcome back. It was good to see a post from you again.

As you can see, it would seem that the fare is about LE100. Unfortunately, although many taxis are newer veheicles they still do not have meters so all fares are still dependant on your haggling skills too.

It would be interesting to hear your observations about Luxor once you return. Hope you'll come back and post again.
