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

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.

I have travelled a lot but i never experienced this kind hassling and harassment. When you take one step outside your hotel you will be continuous being harassed by men trying to get you on a boat-ride, horse-ride or to take a taxi. They don't understand the word no! At some point i was being followed by 4 men (and... More

Nice view of the River Nile. However be ready for a big hustle and try staying not long. You even might totally leave it.
