Short to do list:

1.Upgrade to room with Nile view if possible, e,g Ibeorotel has nice views and central to all sight seeing. Negoiate upgrade through hotel

2. Do not use holiday firm for trip book locally and save a fortune.  Menora travel near the Kings Head pub are excellent. Ask hotel reception to phone them and they will come to you and help you plan your week. Abu Simble and Craig David also good.

3. Must do valley of kings, balloon ride and karnak temple/ dendrah cruize.

4. Be careful when shopping some take advantage of tourists. best shop under the Kings Head pub. Owned by the Silver Man, Hussein. Makes very nice silver jewellery and has everything you could want in good souveniors. All at decent prices without being pressured or ripped off.

5. Be firm with calesh drivers they will eventually take the hint.

6. have no regrets see everything you can in this wonderful town.
