Explore Luxor’s Ancient Treasures in Peace
I (Mara) am normally not a big fan of guided tours myself – the words conjure up a mental image for me of being hurried and herded around in a large group of people like a pack of sheep. It is usually much more appealing to me to slowly wander around places of interest, guide book in hand; or just looking and soaking up the atmosphere, while going back in history in my imagination. I tried this over two years after the events of Jan 25, 2011 in Cairo and it took me all that time to come to grips with finding my way around and unearthing the least known sites.
The Luxor Experience
Luxor, however, is very different to Cairo, and that is my I included the words “in peace” in my opening line above. Picture this: You arrive in the timeless land of Egypt, eager to explore its magical ancient sites. But as you step into the street outside your hotel to discover Luxor, you find yourself constantly bombarded by offers from taxi drivers, calesh drivers, felluca captains and unofficial guides. Then, just when you are under the illusion you have made it safely inside the temple grounds, and are free, you find yourself accosted by well-meaning “guardians” who promise to show you “something very special and secret”. It can be overwhelming, to say the least.

Here’s a question for you: Why travel all the way to Egypt and risk having a less than satisfying experience when you can make the most of your visit with good guided tours?
