Getting there and in:  Getting to Luxor Temple is easy in Luxor. It is probably walkable from most any location on the East Bank of the Nile. It is hard to miss. To get to Luxor from Cairo, you can take the train or a plane. I recommend a plane as the train was dirty and smokey. We took it from Cairo to Aswan, and I would not do it again. The flight from Cairo would be about an hour. Luxor Temple was open till 9 PM when we were there in February. The hours may change based on the time of year, though. It cost 50 Egyptian Pounds. If someone offers you a tour at night, it is easy to say you had one during the day and not deal with being hassled. Do look for the long row of Sphinxes in front of the temple. They lead 3 kilometers to Karnak Temple!
