Bikes in Luxor

If you like to go about things your own way and want to view the magnificent ancient sites of Luxor, consider touring the city on a bicycle.

When you travel by bicycle, you can fully appreciate the landscape’s nuances and draw connections between these historic monuments. Through the window of a tour bus, you just cannot experience how they fit into the harsh desert terrain or how it could have felt for the ancient Egyptians to traverse between them.

When you go by bike, you may take your time, stop when you want, bypass the things that don’t interest you as much, and take tones of photographs. The cost of transportation will be less. Currently, the place is secure and mainly flat. There won’t be much traffic because the roads are generally paved.

On both banks of the Nile, it is simple to rent a bicycle in Luxor. Asking your hotel is a wise first move. If they don’t rent bikes, they can usually direct you to a shop close that does. Prior to departing, always test your bike (including the brakes) and adjust the seat as necessary.
Renting a bicycle on the west bank can make sense if all you want to do is explore the area. It is simple to transport it across on the boat if you want to utilise it on the east side as well.

The Distance in Total

The longest location, Valley of the Kings, is located farther away and is a total of 10 km from the ferry landing. As you stop at the different places along the road, you’ll add a few more km here and there.

This indicates that the approximate total length of the trip is 25 kilometres. You’ll have plenty of breaks because it will be divided into multiple smaller segments when you’re between places.
