I thought that the tomb of Nefertari was closed and that only private viewings were being done of it for an extremely high amount of money.

I, too, thought that Nefertari's tomb was closed to all but the rich?

Some of those prices have risen significantly, although I doubt it will do much to discourage tourism because a) people are staying away right now anyway, and b) most first timers in Luxor or day trippers from the Red Sea will be on package tours, and admission prices will not be visible as part of the overall price.

I don't suppose the SCA had any idea when they originally postponed the rise that tourism wouldn't have started to pick up by now.


Jane has had the new prices up on her blog for a few days now:

Re. the tomb of Nefertari - I'm sure that if you want to enter then you have to pay the relevant fee to the authorities for the special opening and then the ticket price over and above that.

"Stll cheaper than a cinema ticket but a thousand times more amazing" - very very true :-)

Ive always considered the entrance fees to be very cheap compared with how much you would probaby pay if they were located in the UK.

As an example, Dendera at around £4.

In the UK you would pay much more than that just for the car park!

But you haven't already paid £400 plus pp to get to an attraction in the UK, have you ?

I can never understand those that seek to justify OTT price rises in Egypt by saying 'it's cheaper than the UK, or somewhere else', you're not in the UK, so prices should be in relation to the Egyptian economy and they are not, as you are being charged the equivalent of an average weekly wage in Egypt just to go into the Valley of the Kings, where you will find almost all of the accessible tombs shut anyway.

Visitors are again being blatantly ripped off, pure and simple and it is in the main the 'loyal' repeat visitors that are again baring the brunt of unrealistic and disproportionate price rises.

Yes, but prices rise and are set in relation to the UK economy, not that of the country you have come to the UK from, which is my point.

As we all know, everybody pays the same for taxis, admission fees, etc, in the UK (and virtually everywhere else in the world) regardless of whether you are a tourist, or a national, or wherever you have come there from, but not so in Egypt, where tourists pay many times what locals do for many things, which is unique to Egypt and IMO a total rip-off !
