City of the Ancients... Westbank with it's necropolis... everywhere you go, you feel and see the history. Forget about taxi's or coaches... rent a bicycle or scooter. Everything is close by.

Allthough you can rent bicycles and motorbikes on many streetcorners in Luxor, be aware of the quality you get. Also when you cross the Nile river or one of the checkpoints, a rental contract can be requested by the touristpolice. 

So look on internet before which shops have a licence... there are only a few.  You can rent a bicycle illegallly for about 20 LE a day. However, in the licenced shop the price will be slightly higher, maybe 1 Euro, but you will get better quality, maintainence and you get some service, too.

Have a try, sure you will enjoy your time!
