Cairo, train, camels from Flats in Luxor

Tours from Flats in Luxor
This unique piece of marketing highlights that Flats in Luxor isn't just Luxor nor is it just accommodation. We often arrange entire tours of Egypt for people who want a quality, independent and completely tailored itinerary.

Jane Akshar and Mahmoud Jahlan can work with you to suggest places that fit YOUR interests and time available.

In Cairo we have excellent guides with good Egyptology and can recommend hotels all over the city from 3* cheap and cheerful to 5* dead posh. 

As the picture shows transport from camels to trains can be used for transfers, though most people go for internal flights where available.

The desert, middle Egypt, scuba diving, Nile cruises and safaris have all been options we have arranged for our guests.

And of course Hidden Luxor with Hussein Omar and his team of guides

BTW if you are wondering where the picture comes from it is based on old tourism posters that Jane Akshar stitched in cross stitch

Pacific Lutheran University Valley of the Kings Project: THE TOMB OF THE PHARAOH'S ADVISOR.

Pacific Lutheran University Valley of the Kings Project: THE TOMB OF THE PHARAOH'S ADVISOR.: we are, for the moment, switching our attention to a fascinating tomb, KV 48, the burial place of Amenemopet, the vizier (right-hand man) of the warrior pharaoh, Amenhotep II, who ruled Egypt for about 26 years (c.1427-1401 B.C.) during the 18th dynasty of the New Kingdom.

Two lovely new reviews from AirBNB

“The villa was absolutely gorgeous - the pictures don't give it justice! I wish we had planned to stay longer in Luxor just so we could enjoy the villa and pool next door. We were greeted warmly by Mahmoud and his cousin Ahmed. They assisted us with a guide for our site seeing, and arranged for a taxi to pick us up at the airport. My friend Shannon and I were treated incredibly well - we even spent time going out for breakfast with Mahmoud and drinking coffee next to the Nile. I HIGHLY recommend the Nubian Village and Luxor. I can't wait to get back!” Jacqueline

"When we arrived at the airport in Luxor there was someone waiting for us and took us to the flat. Mamood was extremely helpful and made it possible for us to see many more things than we ever thought we would. The accommodations were a little tricky at first as we were on the 4th floor but again Mamood moved us to the first floor once he found out that the steps would be a challenge. Ali our taxi driver was helpful and very informative. He gave great suggestions on what to do and see. When he dropped us at the airport at the end we were sad to say goodbye" Michelle

Flats in Luxor (Egypt) - Condominium Reviews - TripAdvisor

Flats in Luxor (Egypt) - Condominium Reviews - TripAdvisor: We stayed at Janes flats on the east bank and it was great. We also visited the West Bank where Mahmoud met us off the ferry (twice) and took us to visit jane, we swam in the pool, Mahmoud took us to Habu temple and drove us right round to show us the tombs of the nobles. Jane and Mahmoud go out of their way to make sure you have a great time, and are very well informed, they are a mine of information. Their caretaker at our flats (haghag) was also very helpful and very friendly. I can't wait to go back!
