Is Luxor, Egypt a good choice for a holiday destination?

With all the hard work you do you deserve the best kind of holiday, something to enthral the kids, broaden the mind, find out about other cultures and history with guaranteed sun. Luxor, Egypt meets all those criteria, but wait a minute isn’t Egypt dangerous.

Well actually that is more about media perception than the reality. On my Trip Advisor listing you can read independent reviews from real people that have visited recently, and without exception have had a trouble free relaxing and culturally rich holiday. The British gov website reports 865,000 Brits visited Egypt and all the tourist areas are green.

A huge choice of apartment at Flats in Luxor

I have lived here for 13 years running self-catering holiday apartments for independent tourists www.flatsinluxor.co.uk . With my Egyptology qualifications I am able to advise people on the things that will appeal to all ages and interests. Kids that want to see battles, families, animals in tomb scenes. Adults interested in architecture and the arch before the key stone. History buffs who are interested in all aspects from Pre dynastic Egypt to the Golden Age of the new Kingdom, to Greek to even Roman remains.

Tomb of Ay in Valley of King

Lots more are described in my guide book Hidden Luxor.

There are loads of non-historical activities available as well, fishermen wanting to make a big catch, bird watchers, star gazers, horse riders and scuba divers. Whatever your interests and activities Egypt offers it and I can arrange it for you. So for your next holiday contact me jane.akshar@flatsinluxor.co.uk and let me make your dreams come true.
