Luxor is an open air museum, lots to see from temples to ancient tombs, a colourful bazaar downtown and lots of places to eat. Egyptian people are very friendly and it's completely safe.

Luxor has everything - if you want to laze about by the pool you can or if you prefer explore the Valley of Kings and Queens. Visit the locals food markets - the local bus drops you right outside - near the railway station and watch the locals. Luxor is what you want to make of it.

There are so many wonderful things to see here, it really is an open air museum. There is no night life as such but plenty of restaurants around the hotels and downtown if one wants a change from the hotel. A felucca on the Nile at sunset is awesome.

Because there is a dearth of tourists in Luxor at the moment, it is the ideal to visit the tombs, temples etc. hardly anyone else there so you are not rushed through, the down side is that many of the restaurants have closed and not a lot to do in the evening.

The history speaks for itself, the Valley of the Kings and the temples are a must see. It's not a place for very young children as there is nothing for them to do, it's very much for adults and older children.<br /> Plenty of restaurants outside the hotel, although you do get a bit of hassle from locals, best to ignore them or say a polite "la shukran" which means no thank you. Lots of souvenir shops and small supermarkets to buy essentials you may have forgotten. Now is an ideal time to go as there are so few tourists, it is a safe country I didn't encounter any problems at all.

Luxor is a bit like marmite, the hotels are stunning and opulent, however, this is in stark contrast to the streets outside where you see lots of rubbish and general poverty. The Egyptians are on the whole absolutely lovely people and thank you for visiting. You get the usual hassle from taxi and caleash drivers, but be polite "La Shokra" does the trick. Luxor has the most amazing temples of Karnak and Luxor. The museum is equally as impressive. It is an incredible city.

I am not one for shopping but an interesting place to see how the locals shop! Plenty of tourist shops if that is what you want! Prefer the ancient sites in Luxor area - Valley of the Kings etc - Not to be missed - wonders of the world that are simply stunning. Must go to Howard Carters house - a must! A place to revisit again and again.<br />

Luxor has everything you could want from a resort. Ancient history, antiquities, museums and you can always find an excellent personal guide at the Old Winter Palace, who will provide an air conditioned minibus and take you wherever you want to go, either on or off the tourist track. Luxor has a beautiful souk and local market whilst also offering a modern centre where you can find a host of shops that meet every need including a Tesco Express and if you ask, a nightclub and bars. The very sad thing about visiting Luxor at the moment is the lack of tourists and whilst this may suit us when we are sightseeing, the whole town is very quiet and seems rather forlorn. The local people are friendly and welcoming and there is absolutely no reason to worry about your safety. We have been coming to Luxor for 13 years and would highly recommend it either as an additional week following a Nile cruise or for a relaxing and relatively inexpensive holiday on its own.

There is plenty to do in Luxor if that's your choice. The hotel allows for a relaxing stay without having to venture out but if you do then there is plenty to see. Luxor is an historic place which doesn't really cater for the younger child but older children interested in history will be in their element. One restaurant which needs to be visited is the Lantern in the English quarter. It's run by an English lady and the food is lovely. English food if that's your choice is available and it's particularly popular for the Sunday roast lunches.<br /> <br /> The market is now a pedestrian area and well worth a visit and walking distance from the hotel. The museum is also worth visiting but check opening times. Taxis will wait and be paid at the end of your trip so there's no need to worry about getting a taxi back to the hotel if you venture out. This is also true if you take a taxi to the Valley of the Kings/Queens or the Ramesseum. The taxi will wait for you. If you do venture out to the desert make sure you have water as the shops are closed these days due to lack of business. The residents of Luxor are very happy to have visitors and will be keen to make sure you have an enjoyable stay.

The journey from the airport is fairly short but gives the first time visitor to Luxor a glimpse of the sights you can visit here. There are plenty of well known temples to visit, but getting off the beaten track will take you to the Ramesseum, Deir el Medina, the village of the artisans amongst others. <br /> <br /> The local people are friendly and will always help if asked. Don't be afraid to ask and don't be put off by their desire to get you to buy from them. The is no compensation infrastructure for those who have lost their income through the current troubles in Egypt, so be prepared for some hassle. If you firmly tell them to leave you alone, they will and are very respectful to women who dress properly but expect to be scorned if you wear inappropriate clothing at this troubled time. <br /> <br /> We love Luxor, we have made friends here and have never felt unsafe or unwanted as visitors. Even as a group of women on our own, we have enjoyed safety and freedom when walking abroad. Luxor has much to offer, so do your homework before leaving home and learn a little of the history before you visit, that way you'll have a head start when you sightsee. We've enjoyed the early morning balloon flight over the Valley of the Kings, we have sailed on a Felucca, visited the Souk, eaten Baladdi bread, enjoyed an apple flavoured Shisha and soaked up the history. A fabulous place for those with a desire to spread their wings away from the purpose built reports further north and east.

Not a resort for families. Friendly people, some very good places to eat. There are those who do not like the hassle, but a sense of humour goes a long way.

Things to see

On the northern edge of Luxor is the Temple of Karnak, a huge site worth visiting in the early hours of the day to avoid the stifling heat, the Luxor Temple is situated in the centre of the city while the fascinating tombs of the Valleys of the Kings and Queens are found on the west bank, after being greeted by the two faceless Colossi of Memnon which are the first monument to see on route to the Valley of the Kings.

Out and about

Luxor is divided by the Nile River, creating a West Bank and an East Bank, the Luxor and Karnak Temples, the main tourist hotels, shops and tourist market are all on the East Bank. To go from one side to the other can be done by road, though this involves a 15km detour via a bridge to the south of the city. The 'National Ferry' provides an easier and quicker route and it runs every 15 minutes during the day. Taxis are plentiful and cheap, providing an easy choice for travelling around Luxor; ensure to agree the fare before setting off.
