The latest travel trend indicates that smart travelers now choose to travel further and stay longer.
Adding to that our personal philosophy that "Slow Travel is the New Luxury," we completely agree.
That is why, based on years of both personal experience and satisfied guest feedback, we recommend a minimum of a 5-Day/4-Night stay in Luxor at the Hilton Luxor Resort & Spa.
Guests who have no interest at all in visiting the northern sites of Abydos and Dendera, could shorten their stay to a 4-Day/3-Night stay in Luxor at the Hilton Luxor Resort & Spa.
The Greek poet Homer named Luxor "Thebes of the Thousands Gates." There could be no more an apt description for this city known as the world’s greatest open-air museum; it is home for more than one third of the greatest antiquities in the world including the tomb of Tutankhamun which is a must-see for all travelers, particularly this November, thee Centennial of its discovery.
And while, when you travel with us on one of our private custom-designed journeys, despite the fact that we will have set the appropriate pace for you to see everything of major importance, do consider making time to spend a while on a calèche, a horse-drawn carriage. They are inexpensive and common on the east bank and are a delightful way to see the city, especially at night-time or after your have indulged in a perfect British Afternoon High Tea on the sprawling balcony of the Sofitel Winter Palace Luxor overlooking the Nile.
To best understand why we recommend a 5-Day/4-Night stay in Luxor, take a moment and review pages 37 through 44 of our publication "How to Plan an Unforgettable Journey in Egypt."
