Excellent for a leisurely stroll

This is a pleasant walk the whole length of Luxor from the temple all the way to Karnak. Sadly, the pavement is not well looked after with many broken slabs, tiles and potholes... read more

This river side pathway may of been nice at some point, but now it seems neglected and overrun by touts. I have walked it a number of times, and it was never pleasant. It is a constant onslaught of people trying to sell you a boat ride, horse ride, taxi ride, or something else. There are parts of it (between... More

Whilst the Nile is a wonderful river it is so sad to see the amount of garbage on its Banks and little or no effort is made... More

I know they are struggling for business but passing by the Corniche was like running the gauntlet every time. Hard to say if the area is nice or not as spent most of the time looking at the floor so not to accidentally make eye contact with a trader lol

this used to be lovely walk with boutique shops and cafes. Sadly now its a deserted river frontage with the occasional felucca captan asking for trade. Maybe it will pick up again when the tourists return to Luxor, lets hope so.

Loads to see as you walk along the corniche. The Winter Palace which was King Farouk's winter residence. Fabulous building now a hotel. Luxor Temple, the souk and the Luxor Museum. All of this is on the right hand side of the road as you walk towards the museum, on the left is the magnificent Nile. The views of the... More

The corniche can be a really scary place! There will be hords of felucca owners, peddlers and kalesh horsemen following you: "felucca, madam", "kalesh, madam" etc. And you will find it quite horrible at times. Especially the sorry horses... it will be unpleasant to see these half starved horses working the streets of Luxor. But forget it.... Forget the people.... More

Don't be put off by the hassling. Luxor is great. Yes you will be hassled when outside a tour but you can still do it. And it is worth the effort. Carriage drivers do hassle but we found a good one and used him the whole time which prevented this. Some will offer you trips for 20 pound but you... More

Don't be put off by the hassle or by people wanting to be your friend, the Corniche is a great place to wander by. There is a great resturaunt where you can sit and watch the felluccas on the Nile and while away an hour or two. A great morning would be a visit to the Luxor museum, walk to... More

Yes you need to be ready to say 'lala shokran' a lot but the view on the sleepy Nile with felucas is great. We didn't take the boats because we had already paid our taxi for the return trip but the guy proposed 60LE to take us back to our hotel (about 15mn along the shore), we were tempted.
