Is It Safe to Travel to Luxor

Since Luxor city has the most charming & attractive tourist landmarks in Egypt after Giza, The Ministry of Tourist in cooperation with the Egyptian government has secured the Tourist sites located in Luxor in the highest measures of security including all temples, valleys, tombs, chapels, monuments, and everything else located in each tourist spot. However, we highly recommend that any plan you schedule in Luxor city should be arranged with a professional expert tour guide who will be responsible for you arranging all of your transfers, visits, tours, meals, and everything else from A to Z and that is how you will be in good hands. As a professional travel agency, we have a team of the most professional tour guides in each part of the Egyptian tourist sites and we do guarantee that you will feel the ultimate level of security in Egypt.

Here is the answer: “Yes, Luxor now is entirely safe and you can explore its attractions at any time of the year. While touring in Luxor, you will feel the ultimate level of security provided by the Egyptian government”

On each tourist site in Luxor, you will find a local tour guide asking you to let him or her be your guide and then ask for lots of money and tips for every service they offer you and this of course can turn your vacation upside down so as professional wise, you definitely need to have a private tour guide who will be responsible for the whole of your tour in Luxor city and won’t ask for any extra expenses nor tipping unless you decided to give him or her whatever you want depending on how satisfied you are. We as a travel agency hire the most qualified tour guides in the Middle East as the satisfaction of our guests means everything to us and that is why we really seek to provide our guests with the most organized tours ever to feel absolutely safe and secured in their second country and to decide to come back whenever they get the chance to do so.

Most Recommended Tips to Put in Mind While Being in Luxor

  • Your accommodation must be booked in advance in order to avoid any touts on spot and to have a clearer idea about the category of the hotel you are about to be accommodated and to guarantee the best price.
  • Be really careful with Luxor Taxis and Horse carriages as they are difficult to handle especially if you are walking around alone without having a trusted tour guide. They sometimes ask for extra money and in case you faced any difficult situation with any of them, you will find around you the tourist police who are very helpful in handling such situations.
  • Merchants are notoriously manipulative and they will do their best to convince you to enter their shops and pay lots of money. Kindly don’t feel that you “Have to” buy from all of them and don’t hesitate in saying “No or no hassle or in Arabic Laa Shukran”. They will keep insisting until you show them absolute rejection.
  • Don’t try to walk alone at night and you definitely shouldn’t carry lots of money with you as whenever you decide to buy anything, you can simply use your card to do so and the majority of shops in Luxor accept cards “Debit / Credit”.
  • Someone may say “I have seen you today at the hotel” just to let you go with him to a specific restaurant, shop, or a café, to have his own commission, so don’t listen to people who drag you to specific places.
  • Make sure that it is always your decision to do whatever you want at any place so don’t let the others convince you with anything rather than what exactly you want to never go to any place you don’t want, don’t give tipping to those who don’t deserve whatever how much they insisted, and try to enjoy the best of your time in the gorgeous city of Luxor.
  • Try to be polite with the others to make your trip more enjoyable because people will remember you with the way you have decided to deal with the situation.
  • With any problem you felt that you are under threat, don’t hesitate to call the tourist police and they will do all that is needed.
  • Don’t try to buy precious items without having someone with you who understands the difference between original, copy, and semi-copy of the items you need to buy in order not to pay lots of cash for something that doesn’t actually deserve.
  • Always carry with you bottled water and avoid tap water as possible as you can to be on the safe side.
  • Eat your meals at the most well-known restaurants in Luxor and avoid unknown places and cafés.
  • If there is specific medicine you take, kindly make sure you bring it with you.
