I agree with BusyBee and suggest the East Bank. We were on a ship moored on the East Bank and it was very easy to cross the Nile and taxis were obviously very keen to take people to The Valley of the Kings. Agree a price first and I would think you have to ask them to wait for you, but I am not sure. Taxi should not be expensive by anybody's standard. Would suggest you go as early in the morning as you can as it will get very hot. Take water. You cannot take photographs, best leave camera in your hotel if that is the only place you are going to. Let me know if you have any more questions as I would be pleased to help if I can.

We went to Luxor three times last year and each time we stayed at the Iberotel Hotel on the East Bank. It is walking distance to Luxor Temple and a short boat ride across to the West Bank where a taxi can take you to the Valley of the Kings.

We stayed in the Sonesta, on the east bank. 4-star, inexpensive, and we watched the balloons launching @ dawn.
