Overview

3 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 6
Luxor, Nile River Valley
Amar is a 3 bedroomed apartment located in a quiet friendly village on the outskirts of Luxor, Egypt. Situated on the more peaceful West Bank of Luxor, the flat is perfectly located for easy access to the historic sites such as the Colossi of Memnon, Hatchepsut's Temple, Valley of the Kings and the Mortuary Temples of Ramsess II, Ramsess III and Seti I.

About the neighbourhood
The apartment is located in Tod village on the outskirts of Luxor be West Bank. There are very few tourists and you will be living in a traditional Egyptian environment with people coming and going about their normal daily lives. There is a school down the lane and motor bikes, donkeys and tractors passing by every now and again. You will hear children playing in the lane behind the block and the call to prayer being called by the local mosques.
Getting around
In the cooler months you can easily walk to the village via a short cut avoiding the roads. This lovely walk takes you through the fields and into the back of the village close to the local ferry or motor boats to the East Bank.

If it's hot then the local microbus service runs along the road at the back of the block. This will take you to the ferry for 10p. Just stick your hand out and it will stop. Alternatively the Tuk Tuks will take you up and down to the village and ferry for a couple of pounds. The drivers will be keen to give you their mobile numbers and will be happy to come to the flat to collect you at any time. There are always Tuk Tuks near the ferry to take you home. You will near to direct them when nearing the lane end.

Car not needed
How to get there
If you can't fly direct to Luxor you can get there by train from Cairo. 11 hour journey but very comfortable on first class trains with snacks and drinks available and very clean toilets. Many prefer the sleeper trains. Look up Egyptian Railways. Can book online up to two weeks in advance. Taxi from Cairo airport to railway can also be booked in advance online (airport shuttle).

Others fly to Hurghada and either get a taxi through (I can arrange this in advance) after a stay one or two nights there, or local Upper Egypt coach. (Suggest checking at coach depot the day before for times, etc).
