Guestbook comments from the owner
'Thank you for your help in ensuring that our holiday went well. We had a great time out in Egypt and we are really glad that we stayed on the West Bank. The apartment was really nice, with the pool being well used; the sights were brilliant, the food excellent and Abdu was a great help in arranging our tour to the Valley of the Kings, etc, and for giving us information on the other sites around Luxor. We will definitely be going back but for longer next time.'
Ian, Mold, Flintshire
'A great week in Luxor. The apartment is spacious and location great. Abdu is available for advice and help on getting to the sites. We took a 7 year old and a 10 year old and it was great for them. Banana milks at the local Nile cafe recommended!'
Payne family, Winchester
'I want to thank you so much for all your help and also for the nice apartment. It was so nice and we had all what we want and what we need. For sure I will book your flat again. Thank you again for everything.'

While Memnon Apartment is located in a quiet neighbourhood with few cars, central Luxor - a friendly, bustling town - is close by. Practise your haggling skills at the souk; take a ride in a horse-drawn caleche; or, for those who like to take things a little more quietly, take a trip down the Nile in a felucca, followed perhaps by a drink and/or dinner in the elegant surroundings of the Winter Palace Hotel, where Agatha Christie is reputed to have stayed while writing her famous novel, 'Death on the Nile'.
Luxor (Ancient Thebes) is world-famous for its wealth of ancient heritage sites and has been a tourist destination ever since Europe's fascination with Egyptology began in the Nineteenth Century. The concentration of things to see and do in and around Luxor is overwhelming, but the town also serves as an excellent base for trips to Esna, Edfu, Dendara and Abydos temples, up and down the Nile Valley.
Guaranteed all-year sunshine, the best time to visit is between October and May.
Transport in and around Luxor and further afield, tours, felucca rides, camel/donkey rides, bicycle hire, can all be arranged on request. If you need anything to be arranged, just ask!
