I'm mulling the wisdom or otherwise of taking a recently-bereaved elderly relative to Luxor.
It's been his lifetime ambition to see the Valley of the Kings, and he's pored for hours over our holiday pictures and videos. A trip could help give him a new focus after 20-odd years as a carer.
I think I would feel reasonably confident we could have a holiday of sorts, knowing (for example) that the Jolie Ville now has golf carts to drive guests around the site, and we could get taxis door-to-door for restaurants and museum trips.
However, he's 85, can get tired quickly moving about and I'm not experienced enough (with just two visits) to know if he could reasonably cope in the VoK, or on the West Bank generally.
We've been too busy with our own sightseeing to notice whether there are carts or similar facilities (beyond the little tourist trains) to get mobility-restricted visitors closer to the action. He's OK with stairs, balance and ordinary movement over shortish distances.
Also any advice appreciated on the best travel insurers for elderly visitors. He's outside the age limits for the company we normally use.
