Best way to travel from Luxor to Cairo

Hello all,

I was wondering what would be the best way to travel from Luxor to Cairo. I would prefer not to do the overnight train and also definitely no cruise. Not sure what to do. Should I just fly to Cairo or is there something interesting along the way.

If you are seriously interested in Egyptology there are of course interesting sites along the way but driving through Middle Egypt can be problematic for tourists and you may require police permission and/or escort to visit them. Cruises between Luxor an Cairo are few and far between these days, they take 10 days or so and are expensive. I would fly.

Hi. I traveled by plane - it was quick and the price is not bad if you book way in advance.
