“One Day In Luxor”

published 28/09/2004

Prooverwhelming

Consnone

After 28 years my husband and I decided to revisit Egypt, not that we expected the millennia-old monuments to look any different, but the first visit had impressed us so much that we thought we´d enjoy a second visit. On 20th December 2003 Egypt Air took us from Frankfurt/Main directly to Luxor...

“Luxor West Bank by taxi”

ProIndependent travel

ConsNo tour guide descriptions

I would like to recommend anyone travelling to Luxor to arrange themselves a trip around the Luxor West Bank using a local Luxor taxi. I have visited Egypt on 3 occasions now as a backpacker and the taxi trip to the west bank has always been one of the highlights for me. You really get to travel...

ConsHassle, felucca and taxi drivers

Looking at some of the reviews written for Luxor, I've noticed that most of the people who visited this amazing city went on organised package tours. Now, there is absolutely nothing wrong with this; in fact in many respects it makes visiting Egypt easier - less hassle from the various friendly...

“Luxor for 2 weeks”

published 02/09/2002

ProGood base for the must- see sights

ConsConstant hassle from the locals

My husband and I went to Luxor for our honeymoon. We chose it as it was so central to the majority of the must-see sights that Egypt is famous for. Luxor is really a one street town. This street runs the length of the town and most of the major hotels are situated on it. The Sheraton at one end...

ConsThe museums are too expensive

My husband and I spent 2 weeks in Luxor for our honeymoon. It was our first time in Egypt and the first time my husband had visited an Arab country.

Consthe hassle from locals

I had never been on an aeroplane let alone had an exotic holiday but with our 25th anniversay coming up decided it would be romantic to go to Egypt and stand in the the Valley of the Kings on the day. Of course just boarding the plane and flying was exciting, but when the aeroplane landed and i...

Luxor is a lovely place to stay in, itself a vibrant Egyptian city containing two temples (Luxor and Karnak) and with the Valley of the Kings and Valley of the Queens located only a few kilometres away on the other side of the Nile, it offers plenty of historical sightseeing as well a chance to...
