Just had a seven day holiday to Luxor, starting on the 6th February 2013, staying at the Sofitel Karnak hotel. Had an absolutely brilliant time. The staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. As you might imagine, outside of the hotel was pretty much third world but we had no problems, except the usual pestering for money but it was no real problem. We did all of the usual sites and some more, breathtaking in the scale of the temples and tombs. Must recommend the hot air balloon ride, the company we "ballooned" with were Viking, very professional.
We are already thinking about going again next year.
