"Women help Women", "you want felucca?", "you walk like Egyptian" etc etc. It is not possible to walk for 2 metres along the lovely boulevard beside the River Nile without being continually hassled. I realise people are trying to earn a living, but it really is very tiring and slightly intimidating. The views across to the West Bank are lovely... More

The view is spectacular, especially in the dawn or sunset OMG. awesome with the west bank mountains showing a great deal of contrast.

We were in Luxor for four full days and it was difficult to go our without being harassed by the vendors.

One of the best places where one can relax and enjoy in Luxor. Hop in for the Felucca ride on the Nile by the evening and watch the sunset. Go to the Banana Island and have a glimpse of the Nubian life and enjoy the fruit orchards and ofcourse bananas

A beautiful place to walk and view the Nile. There are a few panhandlers, but nowehere near as many as you'd see in other parts of the city.
