Very Good
Best thing is visiting all the temples/mosque/tombs! Definitely a bucket list destination... Do not go in summer! It was very hot in November! The hassle would definitely put me off going again, particularly alone!

I always stay on the West Bank - all the people here are more relaxed, you can take a boat to Karnak or Luxor Temples. Use Africa Restaurant as a home base for advice and help - you won’t be sorry. Ask for owner Ahmed.

I actually like the history of the place, the temples, the carvings etc. loving the west bank as it’s quieter and way cleaner than the East. What i dont like is the hustle from the horse carriage and felucca drivers.

We tried four or five Egyptian cuisine recommended restaurants and easily the best was Sofra for quality and variety at a reasonable price and in fun surroundings. Most of the clients were tourists but Egyptians used it too.

There were very few foreign tourists (Feb 2015) as numbers have not yet recovered since the revolution and we didn't have to queue even in the Valley of the Kings and had many sights to ourselves so I recommend you go soon.

Try the normal Egyptian shops around El Madina El Monawarra andTelevision Street for no hassle and cheap fruit, pastries or perfumes.

- Feluqqa ride in the Nile - Night visit to Luxor temple (until 9:00 pm)

An excellent place to watch the endemic Nile Valley species.
