I am due to fly to Luxor from Sharm with my grown up family on 30th aug. Our intention is to go straight from the airport to Hotel Marsam - near Valley of the Kings - for 2 nights Just to visit the sights on the west bank, we are not interested in exploring Luxor at this time. Then we are booked on a Dahabiyya for 4 nights taking us to Aswan where we are booked for 2 nights before journeying back to Luxor (probably by taxi now) to fly back to Sharm.
Can anyone provide some hands on feedback as to the general `feel` in Luxor at this time. I appreciate that it is Ramadam and that there is a dearth of tourists but that aside, would we have any reason to feel threatened or nervous?? I am willing to travel against fco advice (I appreciate how things get sensationalised) but my husband is extremely worried that we are going to be on edge the whole time because of the political unrest which would inevitably ruin a holiday of a lifetime that we`ve been planning as a family for a very long time.
We have to make a decision very soon and I would really appreciate any help at all with this. I have been avidly following the Luxor forum daily on trip advsior but lately it just seems to be a barrage of verbal counter attacks with nobody actually giving any real feedback!
