“LOVED Caravanserai. Best place to shop while in Luxor area.”
Reviewed 28 November 2011

We visited Caravanserai after visiting the Medinet Habu Temple. I was incredibly impressed with the store. It was so cute and had tons of authentic crafts from all over Egypt..... scarves, glass wear, jewelry, pottery, art, traditional dresses and more. The prices are incredibly reasonable, and all prices were set. Which meant no haggling.. a nice respite from stores in the more touristy shopping areas. The store is owned by a local family (they live right next door!) - the wife runs the store and she's so sweet. An amazing experience! A must visit.

“Wonderful shop!”
Reviewed 19 November 2011

I can't recommend Caravanserai highly enough for a thoroughly enjoyable shopping experience. The shop is well run with a wonderful stock of crafts from all over Egypt, and at extremely reasonable (and fixed) prices. The scarves they stock are beautiful and they have a huge range. My husband and I live in Egypt and this is definitely one of the best shops we have found so far. It is family run and extremely friendly - a real gem!
