The history & Geat Nil

Great feeling when you are walking in front of 1000+1000 years of history and in same time you are looking for the great Nil especially during the Sun set time

A walk along the cornice should be the most wonderful experience. However it has now become a nightmare. You are hassled by all sort of sellers, taxi drivers, carriage drivers, boat captains etc. They will not take NO for an answer. They chase you from one end of the cornice to the other. If the authorities do not do something... More

Egypt = hagglers and bartering. You have to be ready for it and if your in the mood it can be good fun. Lots of nice cafes and restaurants on the waters edge, befriend a local and everything is much easier to enjoy.

Expect loads of hassle and unwanted attention. To be absolutely fair it really is just plain bullying. It really ruined our time in Luxor and caused us to avoid going out. I had been unwell and was recovering from a urinary tract infection and on strong antibiotics and just wanted to be left alone. Alas, it was not to be.... 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

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. 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.
