Please don't miss the fabulous experience of visiting Luxor because of a fear of the troubles 200 miles away in Cairo. Luxor is totally trouble free. We had a wonderful week at The Sheraton, looked after brilliantly by all the staff who can not do enough for you and all with a smile. My husband who has a gluten free diet had treats galore with freshly baked rolls, Danish pastries and cake every day so Coeliacs this is the place for you. We were stunned by the wonders of the Valley of the Kings, Karnak and Luxor temples and a glorious relaxing trip down the Nile to the temple at Dendera. It was good to come back to the hotel after an early start, have lunch on the terrace and spend the rest of the day by the pool overlooking the Nile with the falucas sailing gracefully by.. This hotel is brilliantly situated. It does need a little updating but the position cannot be faulted and neither can the service. Go quickly before the hordes return to Egypt.
