After your tour to Abydos drive 1.5 hours to Dendera the temple of Hathor, which was built in a classic style by the Romans Andy Potelmies. Hathor in ancient Egypt was goddess of Love, beauty and pleasure and is associated with Aphrodite in the Greek culture. Hathor Temple, with its sacred lake and famous astrological roof, is a delicately beautiful structure. Then drive back to your hotel in Luxor which is 77 km from Dendara about 1 hour 45 minutes.
The tour to Dendara and Abydos is a good option if you have an extra day in Luxor. The vivid colors in the Dendara temple were amazing. Abydos though not as awe inspiring as Dendara but was good in shape and well preserved although was used as monasteries. The good thing about these temples they are less crowded than other main temples in Luxor. Our guide Mohamed was a nice guy full of energy and a good company he has ample Knowledge of Egyptology and made our trip fun and entertaining. It is a long drive from Luxor but you get to see Egyptian farm land and villages.
