A holiday in Luxor is plain sailing - but we understand that, for many travellers, anticipation is half the fun of any holiday. If you are such a traveller these holiday information pages are for you!
All information is accurate to the best of our knowledge, but do check important facts for yourself - especially those relating to key holiday information such as flights or passports / visas.
Language is no problem - you can easily get by with English - and getting an Egyptian visa is cheap and easy, especially with a British passport. You can usually fill in a simple form on arrival and pay the fee (about £10 GBP) at Luxor airport. You rarely need to apply in advance for a tourist visa - only for a business visa.
The climate is very hospitable - even the heat of summer is a dry heat which doesn't sap your energy - but we do recommend that you choose air-conditioned holiday accommodation to help you stay comfortable whilst you acclimatise to the heat.
