Luxor is still the place to visit but remember you are the visitor and it is their culture and the only way that some can earn a living by trying to get you to have a boat ride go in a taxi somewhere ride the horse and trap. I have been 10 times to Egypt and spent the last five years going to this same hotel. Be polite have a laugh do not ignore people just say no to anything you do not want. The staff at this hotel are really friendly and it is well worth the extra to seek a Nile view. The lads that have the boats by the pool are polite and will sort out trips at well below your reps quote. Or use Ali who is always around and runs the bag shop just outside the hotel entrance, he is friendly, organised and treats everyone well. Did two trips with him with others at the hotel had a private taxi - private egyptologist - and wonderful time again much cheaper than the reps.
So do not be put off by publicity Cairo is 500 miles away Alexandria even further - I have never seen any trouble but be prepaired for people approaching you just be polite but firm and enjoy
