Well said Aswanfans.
As I have stated on this forum repeatedly, there are probably fewer bigger fans of Luxor than me and I certainly do not get my 'kicks' from Luxor 'bashing', as some on here insinuate.
What I 'learnt' (and am still learning) about Luxor was by visiting regularly over the last 20 years.
I made loads of 'expensive' mistakes in my early trips there, long before the likes of TA, or any other 'How to' manuals for Luxor and I wish I could have accessed information as easily as TripAdvisor allows todays visitors to do.
So I would like to tell people, wherever I am able, how to get the 'best' out of Luxor, wherever I think I can and if that stops them getting ill, getting ripped off, scammed, seeing and doing things that they may not think it is possible to do and all the other good, bad and indifferent things that I did not have the advantage of someone telling me, then hopefully I may have helped.
I have nothing to gain from doing so (other than knowing I may have helped someone) and people can dismiss any advice I may give, or disagree with my opinions should they choose to, that is of course their right.
But much as I love Luxor, I will not 'paper over the cracks' or pretend that the 'not so pleasant' bits do not exist, even if it means being branded a 'fantasist', a doom sayer, or Luxor basher, but will try to help people manage the 'bad bits' a bit better if I can by telling it like it is.
