Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Our ground floor apartment is part of the Egyptian Experience development in Luxor. It is located in an idyllic position on the East Bank of the amazing River Nile with a 260m promenade. It is situated in a beautiful spot at one of the widest points of the Nile overlooking the West Bank and the Valley of the Kings and Queens.
The apartment is ideal for families, couples and groups of friends. Whether you wish to explore the largest open air museum in the world; take a cruise down the Nile or just sit and relax in the sun; you will find it all here. In the evening you can sit on the balcony or promenade and watch the most amazing sunsets!
The kitchen is fitted with a marble breakfast bar and has been thoughtfully equipped by an enthusiatic cook to give you all you need to prepare your holiday meals - that is when you are not sampling the wonderful variety of restaurants in Luxor!
We have a wonderful English speaking driver whom we have come to know and trust. He is very accommodating and will make himself available to you for the duration of your stay. We have found him very reliable and his rates are competitive and certainly inexpensive by British standards!

The Nile River/Valley of the Kings region
The sun never stops shining but the temperatures from May - September can reach 40 degrees C and above which may be too hot for some.
It is a fascinating place to visit, steeped in culture and history. Many people visit again and again as there is too much to see in one trip.
Luxor is said to be the home of 1/6 of the worlds ancient treasures and more are being discovered every day. All this is a mere 20 mins away from our apartment.
Please do not be put off visiting Luxor because of the political situation. We have visited several times since the uprising and at no time have we felt in the least bit unsafe. The Egyptian people are delighted to see us as tourism constitutes 85% of the GDP. All the tourist attractions are open and you will be warmly welcomed.
Some of the most famous tombs, temples and sights to be seen can be found on the West Bank. Allow yourself 4 or 5 hours to visit Hatshepsut's temple, the Colossi of Memnon and several tombs in each of the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens. There are also some less well known attractions such as the Valleys of the Nobles and the Artisans.
If you are at the Valley of the Kings, you can pay extra to visit this small tomb where you can see the original decorated burial chamber and now also the mummy of Tutankhamun. As you would expect this is a very popular attraction so we would advise that you try to arrive early in the day if you can.
Both Luxor and Karnak temples are located on the East Bank, At the Karnak temple there are a number of sound and light shows each night. Each show is in a different language so make sure you check which show is in your language.
Hot air balloon
This is one of the most dramatic ways to see the sights. The trips are usually from the West Bank and take off at dawn, and they last about an hour, but they can vary depending on the weather conditions.
Felucca (sailing boat)
Treat yourself to a one hour or two hour trip on the Nile in one of these traditional sailing boats. As you walk along the river you will see plenty of trips being offered so you can choose your boat and captain depending on what takes your fancy.
Red Sea trips
The day trip will involve an early start and 3 hours travel each way. Some trips will include a boat trip on the Red Sea itself. You might prefer an overnight trip which will be similar to the day trip but with the travelling spread over 2 days and a stay in a comfortable, good quality hotel for the night.
Take a coach or minibus to the dam and you'll take in the obelisk, Philae Temple and the town. Some trips may also take in a visit to one or more temples along the way.
You will have plenty of choice if you want to take a trip on the Nile!! Most durations and most standards of boat are available. The itineraries and journey times are too varied to list here, but a trip of any length will involve at least one night on board and some trips (eg from Luxor to Aswan) might also involve the return leg being taken via train.
Having said all that, you can certainly see a lot in one day, and one of our favourite trips on our last visit was a one day cruise. leaving at 7am and returning at 7pm which was absolutely fabulous. We were able to see a number of sights including the temple at Dendera. The cruise also included lunch and afternoon tea.
