They are now available, but I cannot find an English translation. Maybe someone else can help, please?

In general, admission prices have risen today by 25% across the board, but there will be a few exceptions. Expect a new list in the October MoA Newsletter towards the end of November.

Thanks, Brian. That was the first place i'd looked, not expecting it to be released so late. Silly me! :roll: Fancy expecting a November newsletter edition to be out in time for December! :D

Apparently the Luxor Pass now has to be bought at the Karnak ticket office, instead of behind Luxor museum.

I see Nefertari's tomb is now more expensive than Seti's. Controversial!

Possibly because it's more popular?

Nefertari is much the smaller and, although the Getty restoration may not be to everyone's taste, the decor is stunning..

Seti I , whilst impressive, is also depressing - when one views the damage inflicted since its rediscovery by Belzoni. It's also a massive tomb....I found it quite exhausting. That may have been due. in part, to negotiating the passageway alongside a cavalcade of workers removing debris from the interior :lol:

For me, it's the sheer scale of Seti's tomb that makes it more impressive than Nefertari's. Far from finding it exhausting, Mrs. Flavors and I spent nearly six hours in there. For the vast majority of the time we had it to ourselves. Even the guardians left us alone when they realised we weren't going to be in and out in twenty minutes like the average visitor. Quite magical.

You're right though - the decor in Nefertari's tomb probably makes it more popular.
